  1. Derek Jeter drops a pop up!

    Jul 8, 2012, 9:56 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    It only happens once a decade or so, but Derek Jeter dropped a pop up in the first inning Sunday night, giving the Red Sox an early run. It couldn’t have been a more routine play for Jeter, and he’s always been one of the game’s best shortstops when it comes to handling flyballs. Typically,…

  2. MLB yelled at the Red Sox for replaying a close play on the Fenway scoreboard

    Jul 8, 2012, 2:52 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Boston Red Sox

    In the bottom of the sixth of the first game of yesterday’s Sox-Yankees doubleheader, David Ortiz was doubled off first base when Adrian Gonzalez flied out to Andruw Jones. It was a close play and, on first glance, it looked like Mark Teixeira was pulled off the bag when leaping for the relay throw. So,…

  3. Vicente Padilla: Mark Teixeira should play ‘a women’s sport’

    Jul 8, 2012, 2:13 PM EDT

    Vicente Padilla

    Vicente Padilla fired back at Mark Teixeira after Saturday’s Yankees-Red Sox doublelehader, saying his former Rangers teammate is “scared to face me” and claiming “he’d be better off playing a women’s sport.” Teixeira said Friday that Padilla “doesn’t have too many friends in the game” and suggested that he be suspended for his head-hunting. Padilla…

  4. Pedro Ciriaco saves Boston’s bacon in 9-5 win

    Jul 8, 2012, 12:45 AM EDT

    Pedro Ciriaco

    Pedro Ciriaco is so good he even collects hits after the game ends. Making his Red Sox debut Saturday, Ciriaco went 4-for-5 with four RBI in Boston’s 9-5 win over the Yankees in the second game of a doubleheader. His performance caused the Fenway faithful to bring back the “Pedro” chant for the first time…

  5. Andrew McCutchen gets Home Run Derby call

    Jul 7, 2012, 9:26 PM EDT

    Andrew McCutchen

    Andrew McCutchen is going up against the big boys. The Pirates center fielder, who is listed at 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds, was named as Giancarlo Stanton‘s replacement in Monday’s Home Run Derby. McCutchen is tied for sixth in the National League with 16 homers this season, putting him on pace to smash his previous high…

  6. Michael Bourn replaces Ian Desmond in All-Star Game

    Jul 7, 2012, 5:49 PM EDT

    Ian Desmond, Adam Jones

    Ian Desmond is 2-for-2 with a home run today, but the league has announced that he’ll sit out the All-Star Game and be replaced by Braves center fielder Michael Bourn. Desmond, who leads all shortstops with 16 home runs this season, has been nursing a strained left oblique for three weeks and decided the rest…

    Jul 7, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Franklin Morales Reuters

    The Yankees defeated the Red Sox 10-8 last night without hitting a home run, just their second win this season without a homer, but they put on another power display this afternoon. Franklin Morales was knocked around for six runs over just 3 1/3 innings as a Bombers cruised to a 6-1 win in the…

  8. Joba Chamberlain is closing in on a rehab assignment

    Jul 7, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Joba Chamberlain Reuters

    When Joba Chamberlain first dislocated his right ankle back in March, he was considered a long shot to pitch this season. However, it’s now a realistic possibility that he could rejoin the Yankees’ bullpen within the next few weeks. Yankees manager Joe Girardi told Marc Carig of the Newark Star Ledger yesterday that Chamberlain could…

  9. Mark Teixeira says Vicente Padilla “doesn’t have too many friends in the game”

    Jul 7, 2012, 10:34 AM EDT

    Vicente Padilla Getty

    Mark Teixeira had the key hit in a wild 10-8 win over the Red Sox last night, delivering a go-ahead two-run triple off Vicente Padilla in a four-run seventh inning. After the game, Teixeira told reporters that the triple was especially satisfying because he managed to get the best of a long-time nemesis. “Game-winning hits…

  10. 2012 midseason awards: AL MVP

    Jul 6, 2012, 5:41 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Josh Hamilton was far and away the AL’s best player for two months, but he’s definitely come back to the pack after hitting just .223 with four homers in June. He struck out 35 times last month, nearly matching his total of 39 times from April and May combined. That said, he still leads the…

  11. The Anti-All Stars

    Jul 6, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Chicago Cubs

    Every year Scott Miller of CBS Sports.com puts out his version of the Razzies to Major League Baseball’s Oscars. It’s his Anti-All Stars team, collecting the worst and dimmest the league had to offer at each position. His new one is out now. Mariners fans and Yankees-haters will take note that despite all the early…

  12. 2012 midseason awards: AL Cy Young

    Jul 5, 2012, 3:53 PM EDT

    Chris Sale

    The AL Cy Young balloting turned into a rout last year, as Justin Verlander lapped the field on his way to taking league MVP honors. At the midway point, this year’s Cy is still very much in doubt. Here’s the league top 10 in ERA: Jered Weaver (LAA): 9-1, 2.13 ERA, 68/21 K/BB in 88…

  13. Mariners dump Hector Noesi from the rotation to Triple-A

    Jul 5, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v Seattle Mariners

    Hector Noesi won a spot in the Mariners’ rotation during spring training after coming over from the Yankees in the Jesus Montero-for-Michael Pineda swap, but after going 2-11 with a 5.77 ERA in 17 starts he’s headed back to the minors. Noesi is 25 years old and still has a future as a potential fourth…

    Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Lee points towards a pop out by New York Mets Nickeas during the third inning of their MLB National League baseball game in New York

    Phillies 9, Mets 2: Cliff Lee stood to lose yet another one, as he and the Phillies were down 2-0 entering the seventh, but three runs in each of the seventh, eighth and ninth innings saved his bacon. First win of the year for Lee. Marlins 7, Brewers 6: On Tuesday Milwaukee beat Miami in…

  15. Yankees claim Darnell McDonald off waivers from Red Sox

    Jul 4, 2012, 3:55 PM EDT

    McDonald_Darnell

    Darnell McDonald will be staying in the AL East after being designated for assignment by the Red Sox, as the Yankees claimed the 33-year-old outfielder off waivers. McDonald had a solid season in 2010 when pressed into unexpectedly regular action for the Red Sox, but has hit just .228 with a .695 OPS in 117…

  16. Some rumblings about Zack Greinke going to the Braves

    Jul 3, 2012, 12:31 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    I call the noise surrounding Zack Greinke possibly being traded to the Braves “rumblings” because they’re something less than rumors. But they’re not nothing. Starting from the notion that (a) the Brewers probably want to trade Greinke; and (b) the Braves could use starting pitching, we go to: I still doubt #Braves would offer Greinke…

    New York Yankees first baseman Teixeira misses a ground ball hit by Tampa Bay Rays' Johnson during a MLB American League baseball game in St. Petersburg, Florida

    Rays 4, Yankees 3: Mark Teixeira committed his first error of the season, which allowed in the go ahead run. Hey, he’s allowed one bad day, right? All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy. That’s how far the world is from where I am. Just one bad day.…

  18. Robinson Cano picks his AL Home Run Derby team

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:28 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    There was no talking Josh Hamilton into taking part in the Home Run Derby, so Robinson Cano went with some pretty good fallbacks Monday: Jose Bautista, Prince Fielder and Mark Trumbo. Bautista leads the AL with 26 homers at the moment, one more than Hamilton. Cano and Trumbo both have 20 apiece, while Fielder lags…

  19. Mat Latos, Robinson Cano are your players of the week

    Jul 2, 2012, 3:51 PM EDT

    Mat Latos

    Gosh, it seems like these things happen every week! Anyway: Mat Latos is your NL Player of the Week. Latos was 2-0 in back-to-back complete games, while striking out 20 and allowing but a single earned run in each start. Robinson Cano takes the honors in the AL.  He hit .414 with two doubles, four…

  20. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and higlights

    Jul 2, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Ramon Santiago, Austin Jackson

    It was a really rough weekend for people in Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C. Storms, trees down, power outages and intense heat made it for a really crappy weekend. We were fairly lucky here at Chez Craigy. The power was out for only about 24 hours before coming back Saturday evening.…

  23. Hiroki Kuroda strikes out 11 in win over White Sox

    Jun 30, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Hiroki Kuroda Getty

    Who needs CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte, anyway? OK, well the Yankees do if they hope to go anywhere. But Hiroki Kuroda is holding things down quite nicely at the moment. Kuroda was dominant this afternoon, allowing just three hits over seven shutout innings as part of a 4-0 win over the White Sox. He…

    New York Yankees pitcher Cody Eppley pitches against the Texas Rangers in Arlington, Texas

    This used to be the province of the Blue Jays. However, this year, the Yankees have taken over as the king of the waiver wire. Since the end of March, they’ve grabbed all of the following off waivers: March 28 – C Craig Tatum April 5 – RHP Cody Eppley May 12 – LHP Justin…

  25. Sorry, Yankees fans. Bryce Harper likes D.C. just fine.

    Jun 29, 2012, 11:57 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    The Washington Post’s Adam Kilgore has four pages of goodness on Bryce Harper today, and it’s pretty much a must-read. Among the topics Harper discusses are his fondness for D.C., how he would have majored in journalism had he gone to college and his intention to abstain from alcohol. And he only referred to himself…
