    Oct 7, 2012, 8:11 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    UPDATE: Tarp is coming off the field!  Game starts at 8:40 5:59 PM:  The tarp is on and the rain is falling down, so this one is delayed. It’s all good. More time for me to eat the wings and stuff I got. 5:03 PM: Here are the lineups for Game One of the Yankees-Orioles…

    You can’t predict baseball, but you can at least lay out the parameters. So let’s take a look at what the Orioles and Yankees have in store for us in the American League Division Series. The Teams Baltimore Orioles (93-69) vs. New York Yankees (95-67) The Matchups Game 1 Sunday in Baltimore: CC Sabathia vs.…

  3. The Orioles’ improbable season marches on

    Oct 6, 2012, 12:01 AM EDT

    Orioles Getty

    For most of the regular season, the surprising success of the Orioles was downplayed because of a negative run-differential and their penchant for winning one-run and extra-inning games. Going into tonight’s Wild Card game against the Rangers, most prognosticators didn’t give the Orioles much of a chance because they were using left-hander Joe Saunders against…

  4. My MVP, Cy Young and Rookie of the Year picks

    Oct 5, 2012, 5:52 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    Here are my picks for the MVP, Cy Young and Rookie of the Year awards for each league. Obviously, these are all for fun. I’m not a BBWAA member and do not have ballots for any of these awards. Feel free to flame away. AL MVP 1. Mike Trout 2. Miguel Cabrera 3. Robinson Cano 4.…

  5. Robinson Cano gets apology from negligent reporter

    Oct 5, 2012, 12:03 AM EDT

    Ivan Nova, Robinson Cano

    The Charlotte, N.C. reporter who claimed Robinson Cano tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs last month issued an apology Monday on his twitter feed. Tordjman deleted the tweets that stated Cano was about to be suspended for 50 games by MLB. According to the New York Daily News, he’s made a contribution to the Robinson Cano…

  6. Dunn, Granderson have worst ever 40-homer seasons

    Oct 3, 2012, 11:47 PM EDT

    Adam Dunn

    By OPS anyway. Adam Dunn and Curtis Granderson both entered Wednesday’s season finales with .800 OPSs. Dunn didn’t play and thus avoided overtaking Mark Reynolds for the single-season strikeout record (he had 222, Reynolds finished with 223 in 2009). Granderson did play and hit two more homers to finish with 43 homers and an .811…

  7. Miguel Cabrera wins first Triple Crown since 1967

    miguel cabrera triple crown getty

    Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera entered tonight’s season finale against the Royals ranking first in the American League in batting average, homers and runs batted in. And that’s right where he’ll finish. Cabrera went 0-for-2 with a strikeout on Wednesday night in Kansas City, but he walked off the field to a standing ovation from the Kauffman…

  8. Yankees claim AL East, home field; A’s to take on Tigers

    Oct 3, 2012, 10:11 PM EDT

    Hiroki Kuroda, Derek Jeter

    By losing 4-1 to the Rays, the Orioles settled things in the American League playoff picture this evening. The Yankees will face the wild card winner, either the Orioles or Rangers, in one ALDS and the A’s will get the Tigers in the other. The Orioles will travel to Texas to play a one-game playoff…

  9. Hopefully Cliff Lee realizes wins are a dumb stat for pitchers

    Oct 3, 2012, 3:47 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee

    Cliff Lee just tossed six innings of three-run ball in his final start of the season and has so often been the case he took a loss because the Phillies’ lineup scored all of one run. Lee finishes the year with a 3.16 ERA and 207/28 K/BB ratio in 211 innings. And he’s going to…

  10. David Cone calls Ichiro’s bat a “chopstick”

    Oct 3, 2012, 8:54 AM EDT

    Ichiro Suzuki

    Sometimes, when a pitcher throws a gopherball, the announcer says “I bet he wishes he could have that one back.” I imagine the same goes for a broadcaster who used to be a pitcher. David Cone, specifically. Last night in the bottom of the 11th, Cone, broadcasting for YES Network, was describing an Ichiro Suzuki hit and…

  11. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Oct 3, 2012, 6:09 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v New York Yankees

    Don’t you love the word “penultimate?” Me too! Yankees 4, Red Sox 3: It took twelve innings, but Raul Ibanez‘s heroics won the day. He homered off Boston closer/arsonist Andrew Bailey to bring the Yankees back from a 3-1 deficit in the ninth and then he singled in the improbably-in-the-game Frankie Cervelli to walk it…

  12. Orioles blank Rays, but Yankees come back against Red Sox to maintain lead in AL East

    Oct 2, 2012, 11:23 PM EDT

    ibanez getty

    Rays righty James Shields racked up a franchise-high 15 strikeouts in a complete-game effort Tuesday night at Tropicana Field, but the Orioles were able to squeeze out a 1-0 victory thanks to a fourth-inning Chris Davis home run. It was one of only two hits that the Baltimore offense was able to muster in the…

  13. Jim Johnson is having an incredible season, too

    Oct 2, 2012, 10:05 PM EDT

    Jim Johnson, Matt Wieters

    Baltimore’s surprising closer has been overshadowed by Tampa Bay’s surprising closer, but Jim Johnson notched his 51st save Tuesday in the 1-0 win over the Rays. That moves Johnson into a tie for ninth place on the all-time single-season saves list with Dennis Eckersley (1992) and Rod Beck (1998). He’s the first closer to save…

  14. Nationals turning back the clock to 2006 with Mark DeRosa at shortstop

    Oct 2, 2012, 5:20 PM EDT

    derosa ap

    Remember how Davey Johnson said he doesn’t “give a rat’s ass” if people get upset at him for resting players once the Nationals had the division title all locked up? Well, he wasn’t kidding. Tonight against the Phillies he’s starting Mark DeRosa at shortstop, which is noteworthy because DeRosa is 35 years old and last…

  15. Yankees crush Red Sox, claim AL East lead over O’s

    Oct 1, 2012, 10:29 PM EDT

    New York Yankees' Suzuki and Jeter celebrate as they score against Boston Red Sox in MLB game in New York

    The Yankees exploded for nine runs in the second on the way to a 10-2 victory over the Red Sox on Monday and moved a game up on the Orioles for first place in the AL East after Baltimore lost to Tampa Bay 5-3. The Bombers hit four homers as part of their huge frame,…

  16. Nick Markakis at least three weeks from returning

    Oct 1, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    nick markakis getty

    Whatever odds Nick Markakis had of playing for the Orioles again this season took a hit today, as the team announced that he won’t have the pin removed from his fractured thumb as hoped. Instead that will have to wait another week, which likely means Markakis is at least three weeks from potentially seeing game…

  17. Yankees dump Ivan Nova from rotation for David Phelps

    Oct 1, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    Ivan Nova (47)

    Ivan Nova has been a mess in the second half, including back-to-back ugly starts in which he lasted just 2.1 and 4.2 innings, and today manager Joe Girardi dumped him from the Yankees’ rotation. David Phelps will take Nova’s place against the Red Sox tomorrow, with Nova being available out of the bullpen for what…

  18. Mark Teixeira in Yankees’ lineup for first time since Sept. 8

    Oct 1, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    teixeira getty

    As expected Mark Teixeira is back in the Yankees’ lineup after sitting out 20 straight games and 30 of the past 31 games with a calf injury, playing for the first time since September 8. In his absence the Yankees initially turned to Casey McGehee, Steve Pearce, and Eric Chavez at first base, but recently…

  19. Zack Greinke pitched in a misspelled “Grienke” jersey

    Oct 1, 2012, 1:50 PM EDT

    greinke wrong jersey

    Derek Jeter has MLB’s best-selling jersey and Zack Greinke can’t even get his named spelled correctly on his own jersey. Seriously. Greinke took the mound yesterday wearing a jersey that had “GRIENKE” on the back, eventually switching to a correctly spelled version after someone finally noticed midway through the game. Apparently there were two jerseys…

  20. Derek Jeter led MLB in jersey sales for third straight year

    Oct 1, 2012, 12:46 PM EDT

    Jeters-Girl

    MLB released its annual list of top-selling jerseys and Derek Jeter topped the list for the third consecutive season. Here’s the complete top 10 since the All-Star break: 1. Derek Jeter, Yankees 2. Josh Hamilton, Rangers 3. Ichiro Suzuki, Mariners 4. Bryce Harper, Nationals 5. Mike Trout, Angels 6. Andrew McCutchen, Pirates 7. Yu Darvish,…

  21. Cabrera vs. Trout brings to mind 2001 AL MVP battle

    Sep 30, 2012, 11:30 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Except this time, the shoe is on the other foot. 2001 was probably the height of the steroid era. Over in the NL, Barry Bonds had his record 73-homer campaign, with Sammy Sosa chipping in 64 and even Luis Gonzalez hitting 57. Things weren’t quite so silly in the American League, but consider that Rafael…

  22. David Price notches 20th win, Johnny Cueto falls short

    Sep 30, 2012, 7:05 PM EDT

    David Price

    With both of MLB’s remaining 19-game winners making their final starts today, we now know we’ll finish the year with four 20-game winners. The Rays’ David Price got to 20 by beating the White Sox today, but the Reds’ Johnny Cueto was left with a no-decision after allowing three runs — one earned — in…

  23. Yankees come back on Blue Jays, AL East remains deadlocked

    Sep 30, 2012, 5:13 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez, Robinson Cano

    After the Orioles closed out the Red Sox 6-3 to finish a three-game sweep Sunday, the Yankees completed their comeback on the Blue Jays, winning 9-6 to preserve the tie atop the AL East. They say I can’t focus on the positive. Let’s give it a whirl: Yankees – Definitely a great day for the…

  24. Mike Trout becomes youngest member of 30/30 club

    Sep 30, 2012, 4:27 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    At the tender age of 21, Mike Trout became the youngest member of the 30 HR/30 SB club when he hit his 30th home run Sunday off the Rangers’ Yu Darvish. Trout’s 30-30 season is the 60th in major league history. 37 different players had combined on the previous 59. The youngest to do it…

  25. Yankees squander chances in loss to Blue Jays

    Sep 29, 2012, 4:40 PM EDT

    Rajai Davis AP

    The Yankees fell to the Blue Jays 3-2 this afternoon at Rogers Centre in Toronto, which means the Orioles could move into a tie for first place in the American League East with a win over the Red Sox tonight. (Editor’s note: Baltimore won 4-3) The Yankees had plenty of chances to blow this game open,…
