Casey Janssen blew a save for the Blue Jays last night. Today it was Joe Nathan’s turn.

The Tribe walks off against Texas, MadBum was dominant and V-Mart goes yard again. Note: if you were not a baseball fan, you would have no idea what any of the stuff in the previous sentence meant. It’s just barely English, yet we all get it. Cool, huh?

You never shoot your arrows . . . when you’re sitting at the table. There’ll be time enough for shootin’ . . . when the game is done.

Last night’s Home Run Derby included just one left-handed hitter (Justin Morneau) among the eight contestants and tonight’s All-Star game will feature only two left-handed hitters (Chase Utley, Robinson Cano) among the 18 starters.

The Braves are being sued by the family of a six-year-old girl whose skull was fractured by a foul ball during a game at Turner Field on August 30, 2010.

Jeff Samardzija pitched well and got a win — only his third of the season — in his debut with the Athletics.
Jul 6, 2014, 6:55 PM EDT
The umpires appeared to miss a call on Saturday night when the Blue Jays took on the Athletics, and they appeared to compound the problem by upholding their incorrect call after replay review. Jose Bautista wasn’t happy about it.

The MLBPA is currently conducting an investigation into the role some agents might have played in Biogenesis.

Nelson Cruz could be elected to the All-Star Game. Melky Cabrera and Ryan Braun, too. Shouldn’t the public be more upset about this?
Jun 25, 2014, 6:57 AM EDT
The fella with the beard? The one who pitches for Los Angeles? Yeah, he’s pretty good.
Jun 23, 2014, 8:23 AM EDT
Donaldson leads at his position and Norris and Cespedes are knocking on the door.
Jun 16, 2014, 9:49 PM EDT
There aren’t any significant changes in the American League All-Star balloting from last week, but tonight’s update shows that there are still quite a few positions up for grabs. Shortstop is one of them.
Jun 6, 2014, 9:33 PM EDT
Triple plays are fun. The Cardinals turned one on Friday night against the Blue Jays.
May 27, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT
Mike Trout leads ‘em all, with Jose Bautista and Derek Jeter second and third. If you care about such things.
May 27, 2014, 9:45 AM EDT
It’s possible guys like Nelson Cruz and Melky Cabrera won’t get a lot of All-Star support because of Biogenesis. It’s also possible they won’t get support because fans didn’t really care about them much to begin with.

After a rough start to his big league career, George Springer has sprung.
May 23, 2014, 6:23 AM EDT
Boston has lost seven straight. Mark Buehrle has eight wins.
May 14, 2014, 2:35 PM EDT
Your assumptions about Melky Cabrera and other PED guys are compelling. But not nearly as compelling as the numbers.
May 14, 2014, 7:04 AM EDT
1-0 leads heading into the ninth were not safe last night.
May 8, 2014, 11:33 AM EDT
Major League Baseball is totally fine with letting PED guys come back to the game and make a living after serving their time. People should probably accept that.
May 8, 2014, 8:23 AM EDT
And Bautista knows a thing or two about fending off baseless allegations.
May 6, 2014, 10:40 AM EDT
Buster Olney pulls out his McCarthy mask and shakes his finger at Melky Cabrera
May 5, 2014, 5:00 AM EDT
What a fun, relaxing weekend. Not just for all of us who watched races and sipped julep. It was relaxing for Carlos Beltran too.
