  1. Cliff Lee and Jonathan Papelbon are late-night poker pals

    Sep 21, 2012, 3:49 PM EDT

    poker_after_dark

    Here’s an amusing little tidbit from Philadelphia Daily News gossip columnist Dan Gross: Before the Phillies left for Houston, Cliff Lee brought fellow pitcher Jonathan Papelbon to Harrah’s in Chester to play poker. Lee’s a regular at Harrah’s poker room, usually playing late at night. That’s legal, of course, as opposed to Alex Rodriguez‘s appearances at underground poker games…

    Sep 21, 2012, 8:29 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Boston Red Sox

    Yesterday afternoon rumors began popping up all over Twitter that Robinson Cano had tested positive for PEDs and had a suspension looming.  Cano and his agent Scott Boras forcefully shot that down yesterday: “Not at all,” Cano told The News. “There’s no test or anything.” Cano’s agent, Scott Boras, also told The News that the…

    Nationals' Wang throws against the Los Angeles Dodgers during Game 2 of their MLB National League baseball doubleheader in Washington

    Nationals 4, Dodgers 1: Congrats to the Nats for clinching the first postseason birth for a D.C. team since 1933. Pour one out for Joe Cronin, Moe Berg, Lefty Stewart and Heinie Manush.

    hughes throws getty

    Phil Hughes became just the second pitcher in Yankees history to strike out four batters in an inning when he fanned J.P. Arencibia, Adeiny Hechevarria, Anthony Gose and Brett Lawrie in the fourth Thursday against the Blue Jays. Hechevarria reached on a Russell Martin passed ball after his strikeout, making the rare feat possible. No…

  5. Pedro Feliciano won’t pitch for the Yankees after all

    Sep 20, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Yankees Spring Training

    Shoulder problems have kept Pedro Feliciano from throwing a pitch for the Yankees since signing a two-year, $8 million contract prior to last season, but now an ankle injury will keep him from making a September cameo for New York. Feliciano had been progressing enough in his recovery from shoulder surgery that the Yankees were…

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

    Sep 20, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Miami Marlins

    Braves 3, Marlins 0:  Kris Medlen continues his astounding second half, shutting out the Marlins for eight innings. The Braves have won his last 21 starts, which is the most any team has won any one pitcher’s starts since the Yankees and Whitey Ford from 1950-53. Is there any doubt who will be starting the…

  7. David Robertson’s woes a worry for Yankees

    Sep 19, 2012, 6:03 PM EDT

    David Robertson

    With Rafael Soriano and left fielder Ichiro Suzuki combining to bail him out of an eighth-inning jam, David Robertson didn’t take his fourth loss in his last 10 appearances today in the first game of a doubleheader against the Blue Jays.  He came pretty close, though. Robertson gave up hits to four of the six…

  8. Quote of the Day: Brandon Phillips “Honestly, I’ve been too busy winning”

    Sep 19, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Brandon Phillips, Chase Utley

    Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago.com spoke with Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips about the NL Gold Glove award.  Which Phillips has won for two straight seasons and for three of the past four.  Mr. Phillips, Mooney asks, what say you about Darwin Barney‘s errorless streak? Does he pose a threat to you? “Honestly, I don’t even…

  9. Andy Pettitte tosses five shutout innings in return from broken ankle

    Sep 19, 2012, 2:51 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    Making his first start since suffering a broken ankle on June 27, Andy Pettitte returned to the Yankees’ rotation this afternoon with five shutout innings against the Blue Jays. Pettitte cruised through Toronto’s lineup, allowing just four singles and two walks while needing 75 pitches to record 15 outs. He struck out three. And with…

    Clemente

    The Roberto Clemente Award goes to the Major Leaguer who “best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team.” David Ortiz won it last year.  The 2012 nominees — one per team — were just announced and are listed below. One complaint first. It’s the same complaint I lodge every…

    Today Buster Olney speculates about where Josh Hamilton may wind up.  He runs through any number of teams, notes that there are either fit or payroll problems, and ultimately lands on the Tigers, noting that (a) they have a spot in left field for Hamilton: and (b) they have recently been something of a free…

    Yes, this is “Part II.”  For long time readers will remember that this feature was first created in April 2010 thanks to a couple of amorous and totally classy people at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago. In our latest installment, we look to Deadspin, who noted that Russell Martin and Ben Zobrist weren’t the only…

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

    Sep 17, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles v Oakland Athletics

    Orioles 9, Athletics 5: Baltimore salvages one. Which is important for two reasons. Reason 1:  It’s their 82nd win of the year, which means they will finish above .500 for the first time in forever.  More importantly: they really just need to avoid the disaster west coast trip here. If they take care of business…

Here’s the list of players with…

  15. Andy Pettitte re-thinking plans for 2013 after ankle injury

    Sep 16, 2012, 2:51 PM EDT

    Andy Pettitte

    Andy Pettitte will return from a broken ankle and rejoin the Yankees’ rotation Tuesday, but the 40-year-old left-hander remains uncertain about whether he’ll return in 2013. Pettitte told reporters this morning that when he initially came out of retirement it was strictly a one-year thing, but the injury and lack of innings this season “definitely…

  16. Great news for the rest of the NL: Dodgers keep Ned Colletti around

    Sep 15, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Ned Colletti

    Sure, these new Dodgers may have as much buying power as any three other National League teams combined, but at least fans of other clubs can take heart that Ned Colletti will remain the one doing the spending after inking a mulityear contract extension on Saturday. Colletti’s Dodgers have the NL’s third-best record since he…

  17. Brett Gardner could rejoin Yankees as pinch-runner

    Sep 15, 2012, 3:29 PM EDT

    Brett Gardner Getty

    When Brett Gardner underwent surgery on his right elbow in late July, it was thought that he would miss the rest of the season. However, it’s now possible that he could rejoin the Yankees down the stretch, albeit in a limited capacity. Gardner participated in bunting drills on the field and ran the bases this…

  18. CC Sabathia disappoints as Rays down Yankees

    Sep 14, 2012, 10:55 PM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    CC Sabathia is the game’s highest-paid hurler, but David Price has pretty obviously supplanted him as the AL East’s best pitcher. Tampa Bay’s ace picked up his league-leading 18th win Friday as the Rays topped the Yankees 6-4. Price allowed two runs in seven innings to become the AL’s first to 18 victories. Sabathia gave…

    Derek Jeter AP

    After tying Willie Mays last night against the Red Sox, Derek Jeter moved into sole possession of 10th place on the all-time hits list tonight against the Rays. Jeter, who is currently playing through a bone bruise in his left ankle, collected hit No. 3,284 with a single off the glove of second baseman Elliot…

  20. Edwin Encarnacion joins the 40-homer club

    Sep 14, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim  v Toronto Blue Jays

    For the third straight season the Blue Jays have a 40-homer hitter, as Edwin Encarnacion went deep last night for the 40th time after Jose Bautista reached that mark in both 2010 and 2011. Encarnacion has always had a ton of offensive upside, especially in terms of power potential, so much so that the Reds…

  21. Derek Jeter ties Willie Mays on the all-time hits list

    Sep 14, 2012, 8:22 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Boston Red Sox

    Obviously they’re two different kinds of players, but it’s kind of cool to see Derek Jeter tie Willie Mays on the career hits list. Number 3,283 came on a seventh inning RBI single last night during the Yankees 2-0 win over Boston.  It was his 195th hit of the year, which leads the majors. So,…

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

    Sep 14, 2012, 3:46 AM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Cardinals 2, Dodgers 1: A must-win for both teams if they wanted to stop the bleeding, but a muster-win for L.A. since they’re behind in the standings. Just didn’t happen, though. Lance Lynn, back in the rotation in a spot start, allowed one run in six innings and struck out seven to give the Cardinals a…

  24. Andy Pettitte to start Tuesday for the Yankees

    Sep 13, 2012, 5:07 PM EDT

    Andy Pettitte

    Andy Pettitte declared himself ready to return to the rotation following a 55-pitch bullpen session yesterday and apparently the Yankees agreed, because he’ll start Tuesday against the Blue Jays in New York. Pettitte has been out since a line drive fractured his ankle on June 27, but before that he was having a fantastic comeback…

    Jonah Keri pointed this out on Twitter a few minutes ago. I dare say I haven’t seen analysis this good in all of my days. Really, we just need to stop now and let the season wind down, because all that can be said has been said. Including a bit about CC Sabathia having “gained…
