    Paul Goldschmidt

    D-Backs first baseman Paul Goldschmidt is nearly halfway to what is arguably baseball’s most unbreakable record.

  2. Fun with roster construction, starring the Colorado Rockies

    Mar 29, 2014, 10:35 PM EDT

    The Rockies may have the most interesting and unintentionally hilarious roster going into Opening Day. They’ll carry 14 pitchers, including two that are injured (Jhoulys Chacin and Boone Logan, who don’t count against the 25-man limit), as well as two catchers, only five infielders, and six (six!) outfielders. The rotation will include Jorge De La…

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2014 season. Next up: The Colorado Rockies. The Big Question: Can the Rockies get back over the .500 mark? Rookie manager Walt Weiss led…

  4. Rockies reach two-year deal with Justin Morneau

    This ultra-active day on the hot stove continues. According to beat writer Troy Renck of the Denver Post, the Rockies are “closing in on” a two-year contract with free agent first baseman Justin Morneau. No word yet on the financial terms. Morneau struggled mightily throughout the 2013 season, batting .259 with a .741 OPS in…

    Major League Baseball is unveiling the 2013 Silver Slugger Award winners Wednesday evening (6:00 p.m. ET) in an hour-long special on MLB Network. The Silver Slugger Award is given annually to the top offensive player at each position in each league, as determined by MLB’s coaches and managers. We’ll post the recipients here as they…

  6. Braves score four times in ninth to lower magic number to 1

    Sep 20, 2013, 6:03 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves' Brian McCann celebrates hitting a RBI single while playing the Chicago Cubs during the ninth inning of their MLB National League baseball game in Chicago

    The Braves busted open a 5-5 game with four runs in the ninth to beat the Cubs 9-5 on Friday and clinch at least a tie in the NL East with the Nationals scheduled to play later tonight. All four runs in the ninth came after Freddie Freeman was intentionally walked by Kevin Gregg to…

  7. Denard Span’s hitting streak ends at 29 games

    Nationals center fielder Denard Span went 0-for-4 in last night’s win over the Marlins, ending his hitting streak at 29 games. Span’s streak was the longest in the majors this season, topping Michael Cuddyer‘s 27-game streak from June-July. He fell one game short of tying Ryan Zimmerman for the franchise record, which was set in…

  8. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    Sep 14, 2013, 8:56 AM EDT

    Zimmerman AP

    Things are getting very interesting in the NL Wild Card race. While the Reds lost to the Brewers last night, the Nationals beat the Phillies 6-1 for their seventh straight victory. Ross Ohlendorf, who started in place of the scratched Stephen Strasburg, tossed five innings of one-run ball in the victory. Ryan Zimmerman homered for…

    Sep 11, 2013, 7:01 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox  v Tampa Bay Rays

    Red Sox 2, Rays 0: Welcome back Clay Buchholz. It’s like you never left. Or at least the early-season version of you never left. Five shutout innings with six strikeouts before making way for a bullpen that was just as stingy. The Red Sox lead in the East is 8.5 games. Padres 8, Phillies 2:…

    Braves 5, Cardinals 2: That was somewhat unexpected. A less-than-dominant Braves team sweeps the best team in the National League. The key was Kris Medlen allowing two runs on eight hits. The key all series was good starting pitching from the Braves. So of course the big talking point everyone has is how Jason Heyward…

  11. Rockies owner says “we won’t trade” Michael Cuddyer

    Jul 19, 2013, 1:43 PM EDT

    cuddyer getty

    With the Rockies in third place at 46-50 and Michael Cuddyer having a career-year at age 34 he’d seemingly be a prime trade candidate, but team owner Dick Monfort said there’s “not a chance” the outfielder will be moved. “Right-handed corner bats are pretty important,” Monfort told Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post. “And put…

  13. It’s Cespedes vs. Harper in the Home Run Derby final

    Jul 15, 2013, 10:24 PM EDT

    National League batter Bryce Harper, of the Washington Nationals, watches his home run during the Major League Baseball All-Star Game Home Run Derby in New York

    In the Home Run Derby your first two round totals determine whether you make the finals. Yoenis Cespedes had 17 in the first, so he was definitely going to make it. His opponent wasn’t clear, though. Now it is, with Bryce Harper hitting eight homers in round two. Chris Davis didn’t — in fact, he…

  14. Yoenis Cespedes puts on a first round show in the Home Run Derby

    Jul 15, 2013, 10:04 PM EDT

    Chevrolet Home Run Derby

    Following the Home Run Derby from on-site is … weird. It’s a made for TV event, really. And when you’re sitting out behind the left field foul pole in a temporary press box that is sort of insulated from the sounds of the ballpark you lose your gravity pretty quickly. I had the MLB.com feed…

    We get it. Not everybody is into the Home Run Derby. But some of you are and that’s totally fine. We’re here if you want to talk (or complain) about it. Feel free to use this as an open thread to discuss the festivities at Citi Field this evening. Below you’ll find the eight participants…

  16. Previewing the Home Run Derby: Prince Fielder aims for third crown

    Jul 15, 2013, 3:44 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    Prince Fielder can join Ken Griffey Jr. as the only three-time winners of the Home Run Derby on Monday night, but to do it, he’ll have to best Chris Davis, who is currently on pace to hit 60 bombs this year. This year’s Home Run Derby field is unusual in that it features just three…

    Texas Rangers v Detroit Tigers

    These were the last baseball games that count — despite the claim about the All-Star Game counting, which is certainly does not in any real sense — until Friday. That’s some b.s. right there. Why don’t they play the All-Star Game with only 25 guys on a team and let the rest of the league…

  18. Terry Collins wants Pirates fans to “reevaluate”

    Jul 14, 2013, 8:45 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v New York Mets

    The Home Run Derby created some unexpected drama when Mets third baseman David Wright picked childhood friend Michael Cuddyer over Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez. This caught the ire of Pirates fans, who felt that Alvarez was much more deserving of a selection. On Thursday, Cuddyer’s teammate and fellow Derby participant Carlos Gonzalez bowed out…

  19. Carlos Gonzalez out, Pedro Alvarez in for Home Run Derby

    Jul 11, 2013, 5:59 PM EDT

    Pedro Alvarez

    Carlos Gonzalez isn’t too banged up to play for the Rockies or to participate in next week’s All-Star Game, but due to his finger injury, he has opted out of Monday’s Home Run Derby. Replacing Gonzalez on the NL squad is Pittsburgh’s Pedro Alvarez. Alvarez is tied with the Phillies’ Domonic Brown for second place…

  20. The 2013 Home Run Derby participants have been announced

    home-run-derby

    Just announced on ESPN’s SportsCenter, here are the participants for the 2013 Home Run Derby, which will take place next Monday at 8 p.m. ET at Citi Field in New York. Keep in mind that all of the players selected were also chosen for the All-Star Game. So there’s no Giancarlo Stanton here. Oh well.…

  21. Carlos Gonzalez forced out of game with sprained middle finger

    Jul 7, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    Carlos Gonzalez

    It has been a hellish week for the Rockies, losers of seven of their last eight games. They lost starter Roy Oswalt to a hamstring injury in the second inning this afternoon, then lost outfielder Carlos Gonzalez to a right hand injury in the ninth inning just as they were ready to escape the Arizona…

  22. Pouliot’s midseason award picks: NL MVP

    Jul 5, 2013, 6:37 PM EDT

    Carlos Gonzalez

    Now it’s time for the NL midseason MVP, and this year’s picture to date is just as confusing as last year’s was, in my opinion. Of course, the BBWAA decided on Buster Posey pretty handily last year(27 of 32 first-place votes), but I ultimately picked Yadier Molina from a close group of five players. Here…

  23. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 5, 2013, 6:16 AM EDT

    Adam Dunn

    White Sox 3, Orioles 2: A walkoff homer for Adam Dunn won it, but seven shutout innings — with 11 strikeouts — from Jose Quintana helped make it possible. Athletics 1, Cubs 0: Offense-lovers need not apply. Dan Straily allowed only one hit in seven shutout innings. Travis Wood had six shutout innings of his…

  24. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 1, 2013, 6:51 AM EDT

    San Diego Padres v Miami Marlins

    Marlins 6, Padres 2: An improbable walkoff grand slam from Jeff Mathis caps an improbable winning month from the Miami Marlins. 15-10 in June for the worst team in baseball. Not bad. Oh, and Mathis’ homer was the 3,000th in team history. Pirates 2, Brewers 1: A 14th inning walkoff win for the hottest and…

  25. Michael Cuddyer extends hitting streak to 27 games

    Jun 30, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    Michael Cuddyer

    Down to his last at-bat in this afternoon’s game against the Giants, Michael Cuddyer extended his club record hitting streak to 27 games and his club record on-base streak to 46 games. With his team down four runs, the Rockies outfielder singled with two outs and the bases empty against Giants reliever Sandy Rosario. He…
