  2. Mike Trout and the Angels haven’t discussed a long term deal

    Sep 25, 2013, 11:38 AM EDT

    Mike Trout

    From the L.A. Times, a story about the state of Mike Trout’s eventual crazy-riches. Current status: no discussions yet about any kind of long term deal for arguably the best player in baseball. He’s making just north of the minimum now, as the Angels only have him a token bump from last year’s minimum salary.…

  3. Alex Rios hits for the cycle against the Astros

    Sep 23, 2013, 10:26 PM EDT

    Texas Rangers' Rios is congratulated by teammate Andrus and manager Washington after hitting a home run against the Houston Astros during their MLB American League baseball game in Arlington

    Rangers outfielder Alex Rios became the third player this year to hit for the cycle Monday, doing so in just six innings against the hapless Astros. Oddly enough, all three cycles this year have been contained entirely within the AL West. The Angels’ Mike Trout had one in May against the Mariners, and the Astros’…

    Sep 19, 2013, 7:12 AM EDT

    Chris Davis

    Orioles 5, Red Sox 3: Chris Davis with a two-run single in the 12th to win the game. Wei-Yin Chen gave up 11 hits but someone only three runs in five and two-thirds. Baltimore remains one back in the wild card. The Sox’ magic number for the division remains at three. Braves 5, Nationals 2: They’re…

  5. A Thoroughly Enjoyable Season

    Sep 18, 2013, 10:45 AM EDT

    Cleveland Indians v Kansas City Royals

    Well, it’s Sept. 17 … and the Kansas City Royals have a shot at the postseason. It’s a bit of a longshot, sure. They are 2 1/2 games behind Texas in the wildcard standings right now, which is hardly insurmountable (especially the way the Rangers are playing). But they also have Cleveland and Baltimore ahead…

  6. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 17, 2013, 6:23 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Tampa Bay Rays

    Rays 6, Rangers 2: A homer and three RBI for Wil Myers as the Rays send the Rangers spiraling ever further into despair. Because the Indians lost too the Rangers didn’t fall out of the wild card slot, but they did fall out of the top spot, meaning that they’re now closer to falling out…

  7. Baseball America picks Twins prospect Byron Buxton as minor league player of the year

    Sep 11, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Baseball America announced that Twins stud prospect Byron Buxton is their minor league player of the year after the 19-year-old center fielder dominated two levels of Single-A in his first full pro season.

  8. Play of the Day: Kole Calhoun comes out of nowhere to make a sliding grab

    Sep 8, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Cleveland Indians

    Angels outfielder Kole Calhoun made a fantastic sliding catch in the top of the seventh today against the Rangers. Reliever Michael Kohn was trying to hold onto a 3-2 lead with runners on second and third and one out when Elvis Andrus popped up a first-pitch fastball into shallow right-center field just behind second base.…

  9. Joey Votto has reached base in nine consecutive trips to the plate

    Sep 7, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Joey Votto

    Reds first baseman Joey Votto last made an out in the eighth inning on Thursday in the series finale against the Cardinals. Since then, he has gone 4-for-4 with five walks in nine trips to the plate against Dodger pitchers. Last night, in a 3-2 victory, Votto drew a walk off of Chris Capuano, singled…

    Miguel Cabrera Getty

    Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera left Thursday’s game with “abdominal discomfort” but felt good enough tonight to make the start at the hot corner against the Indians. Unfortunately, he was only able to go two innings tonight due to abdominal irritation, striking out in his only plate appearance. Andy Dirks took over at third base.…

  11. Scott Boras is all for 12-year contracts

    Boras thinking

    Scott Boras, when asked about the idea of signing guys for short contracts that cover their arbitration years: “I’m more into 12-year deals for young players,” Boras replied. “The M.O. is, you want to keep them in the franchise, and you want to be there for the fans and be a marquee for them. So…

    Aug 25, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v New York Mets

    Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera homered again as he continues to inch closer to the AL home run lead, and subsequently another Triple Crown. The homer, a two-run shot off of Mets starter Dillon Gee in the first inning this afternoon, marked #42 on the season, leaving him four shy of Orioles first baseman Chris…

  13. Report: Torii Hunter and Albert Pujols nearly came to blows last summer

    Aug 23, 2013, 8:55 PM EDT

    It seems that any Angels-related news that doesn’t involve Mike Trout is bad news, these days. We learned earlier that general manager Jerry DiPoto and manager Mike Scioscia will not be able to coexist in the Angels organization after the season. Now, via Scott Miller of CBS Sports, it appears that outfielder Torii Hunter had…

    From beat writer Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com comes word that Angels outfielder Mike Trout is out of the starting lineup for a second straight game on Tuesday night due to a right hamstring strain. Trout suffered the injury during Sunday afternoon’s series finale against the Astros and might not be available until the end of…

    Mike Trout

    Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports that Angels outfielder Mike Trout is out of the lineup for tonight’s game against the Indians due to right hamstring tightness. Trout tweaked his hamstring while running to second base on a double yesterday and was eventually forced to make an early exit. He downplayed the severity after the game,…

  16. Mike Trout is day-to-day with a tight hamstring

    Aug 19, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    Mike Trout

    Mike Trout left yesterday’s Angels-Astros game with a tight hamstring. As easily the best player on the Angels this year that’s trouble, but apparently not serious trouble: He’s day-to-day and downplayed the severity of the injury. Trout is hitting .333/.430/.574 with 21 homers and 28 stolen bases on the year.

    Yankees 9, Red Sox 6: All of the fireworks. All of the intrigue. All of the A-Rod. But this game really came down to the bullpens. The Yankees’ was fresh and effective, the Red Sox’ wasn’t. Our more thorough write-up can be read here. For now the Red Sox probably need to think less about…

  18. Chris Davis keeps pace with Miguel Cabrera, hits 45th homer in Orioles win

    Aug 18, 2013, 7:30 PM EDT

    Chris Davis

    Miguel Cabrera went deep for home run #40 this afternoon, creeping closer and closer to the Major League lead in his quest to obtain a second consecutive Triple Crown. Current leader Chris Davis, though, blasted his 45th home run of the season to keep pace, a two-run blast in the eighth inning against Rockies reliever…

  19. Miguel Cabrera slugs 40th home run, Tigers top Royals

    Aug 18, 2013, 5:21 PM EDT

    Max Scherzer surrendered just two runs over eight strong innings and Miguel Cabrera launched a two-run homer as the Tigers defeated the Royals 6-3 on Sunday afternoon at Detroit’s Comerica Park. The performance netted Scherzer his 18th win — he is now 18-1 — and the home run was Cabrera’s 40th. Scherzer fanned four Kansas City…

  20. Miguel Cabrera blasts walk-off home run as Tigers defeat the Royals

    Aug 17, 2013, 11:55 PM EDT

    Kansas City Royals v Detroit Tigers

    It was, as baseball endings go, about as predictable as they come. Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera led off the bottom of the ninth with the game tied 5-5. He was 1-for-4 to that point with an RBI single. Entering the night with a .450 on-base percentage, simply reaching with a single or a walk…

  21. WAR is stupid, people are stupid (Or, Trout vs. Cabrera)

    Aug 17, 2013, 11:43 AM EDT

    g-sport-121116-troutcabrera.nbcsports-story-612

    Well, as expected, Los Angeles’ Mike Trout is beginning to open up his WAR lead on Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera, not that anyone really cares or should expect it to make much of a difference in the MVP race. I’ve been saying for a couple of months now that by the time the season ends, Trout…

  22. A time to be young

    Aug 14, 2013, 12:20 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    I didn’t realize it at the time, but the late 1970s was an amazing time for young baseball players. I’m arbitrarily choosing 23-and-younger as “young” — but with that age in mind, the late 1970s gave us Hall of Famers Eddie Murray, Andre Dawson, Paul Molitor, Gary Carter, Robin Yount, Ozzie Smith and some pretty…

  23. Mike Trout is pro-lifetime bans for first time PED offenders

    Aug 12, 2013, 5:11 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    Add Mike Trout to the growing Get Tough crowd among major league ballplayers. He was on the Boomer and Carton show today and said: “I think MLB is definitely moving in the right direction with getting these guys. For me personally, I think you should be out of the game if you get caught. It takes away…

    Sad news to pass along courtesy of our friends at Yahoo! Sports. Joshua Jones, the young fan who was be befriended by Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp earlier this year, has passed away following a battle with brain cancer. He was just 19 years old. It was hard not to be touched when Kemp gave Jones…

  25. Colby Rasmus quietly having a great year

    Jul 28, 2013, 11:30 PM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Toronto Blue Jays

    Having read the title, I can no longer do the following exercise correctly, but I’ll do it anyway: Player A: .295 AVG/.324 OBP/.508 SLG (was in the AL All-Star starting lineup) Player B: .272 AVG/.336 OBP/.490 SLG Player A is Adam Jones, universally hailed as one of the best outfielders in the game. Player B is Colby…
