Aug 1, 2014, 2:14 PM EST

The Dodgers sweep their rivals in San Francisco, the Rays complain about Big Papi and I complain about Southwest Airlines messing with my kids’ vacation.

Daisuke Matsuzaka has been surprisingly useful for the Mets this season in a swingman role, but now he’s headed to the 15-day disabled list due to right elbow inflammation.
Jul 25, 2014, 8:45 PM EST
The struggling Daisuke Matsuzaka will have his elbow examined, which will let the Mets know how to proceed.

At age 41 he’s at risk to break down, but Colon has a 2.98 ERA in his last 12 starts with a 62/14 K/BB ratio and .217 opponents’ batting average in 85 innings.

Who is buying? Who is selling? Who is on the block? And is next week’s trade deadline really a deadline?

The Rays stay hot, the Yankees get an assist from Mother Nature and Mike Moustakas showed us how to jar a bar loose from the catcher’s mitt without breaking the home plate collision rules.

The converted shortstop is on a roll.

Last night Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud hit a home run to left-center field, except Mariners left fielder Dustin Ackley jumped up, reached over the fence, and brought the ball back with a spectacular catch.

Buddy Carlyle was the odd man out when the Mets activated Jon Niese from the disabled list.

Odrisamer Despaigne is attempting to do something no Padres pitcher has ever done: throw a no-hitter.
Jul 19, 2014, 7:50 PM EST
Jenrry Mejia had some bold words for the New York media prior to yesterday’s game against the Padres.

Travis d’Arnaud has looked like a keeper since his return from Triple-A Las Vegas.

When last we checked in with Dontrelle Willis the former Rookie of the Year had been released by the Giants in April and was talking about potentially becoming a pitching coach.

This is so sad. It looked so healthy, too.
What does Clayton Kershaw think about being passed over for All-Star start in favor of Adam Wainwright?
Jul 15, 2014, 11:51 AM EST
Cardinals/National League manager Mike Matheny choosing his own guy, Adam Wainwright, to start tonight’s game over Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw got quite a few Dodgers fans (and basically non-Cardinals fans) angry.
Jul 15, 2014, 10:47 AM EST
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.

Colon has mediocre overall numbers thanks to a poor first six weeks, but since mid-May he’s started 10 games with a 2.74 ERA and 51/12 K/BB ratio in 72 innings.

The last baseball that counts for a few days. Enjoy it, folks.
Jul 10, 2014, 11:03 AM EST
Yes, it’s Jeter day at HBT, apparently.

This was Jacob deGrom’s best performance since he played Jim Morrison in that Oliver Stone Doors flick.
The umpires let the Mets challenge a “neighborhood play” last night. They’re not supposed to do that.
Jul 8, 2014, 9:16 AM EST
Hey, here’s a neat idea: let’s challenge non-challengable plays to see if they should be challenged! Could be cool?
