    Boston’s two remaining stars did their thing Tuesday, and the AL East is again all knotted at the top. With the Orioles having already topped the Rays 9-2, the Red Sox got a game-winning single from Jacoby Ellsbury in the bottom of the ninth to beat the Yankees 4-3. Ellsbury ended up 4-for-5 on his…

    Nick Markakis

    Nick Markakis had pins inserted into his broken left thumb during surgery Tuesday morning and is still hoping to play next month if the Orioles reach the postseason. “Originally, they thought they were going to put a plate in there,” manager Buck Showalter said. “They were concerned about the range of motion. They were able to…

    David Price skipped his Saturday start against the Rangers because of shoulder soreness, but the Rays left-hander threw a bullpen session today and declared himself ready to take his next turn in the rotation. That will come Friday against the Yankees, in New York and matched up with CC Sabathia, which is a helluva way…

  4. It’s officially “so and so should be considered” season

    Sep 11, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    I had a go at this concept last year. The concept that, when it comes to postseason awards, it’s somehow a legitimate argument to say “so and so should be considered” when the person advocating such a position doesn’t actually think they should win it. That he should be “in the conversation.” Person 1: I…

  5. Mark Teixeira “irritated” his calf, to be out 10-14 days

    The good news: The Yankees just said that Mark Teixeira will not be out for the remainder of the season! The bad news: They said he’d be out 10-14 games, in a season that has only 22 games left: Yankees announce MRI showed “irritation” of Tex’s calf strain and he’ll be out “10-14 days.” Also,…

    Rays 6, Rangers 0: That, my friends, is B.J. Upton.  Three homers for big brother and a two-hit shutout for James Shields. This will make Rays fans feel really good until Texas bounces them easily in the division series again. Marlins 8, Nationals 0: The Nats have not won a game since they shut down Stephen…

    Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira aggravated his troublesome left calf on the final play of Saturday night’s 5-4 loss to the Orioles.

    Sep 7, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Here’s the top 50 of a rather weak free agent class. Again, I didn’t include Robinson Cano, R.A. Dickey and some others whose options are sure to be picked up. Also absent is Mark Reynolds. He is not eligible for free agency, though there’s a good chance he’ll be non-tendered this winter. All ages are…

The Orioles used six homers, including two more from Mark Reynolds, to ward off a big eighth-inning comeback and beat the Yankees 10-6 on Thursday.

    The Yankees have struggled to put runs on the board recently and have the Orioles hot on their tail going into a four-game series tonight in Baltimore, but the Bombers’ offense could be back to full strength soon.

    In addition to the box scores, I also watched Bill Clinton last night. No matter what your politics, I hope we can agree that Clinton makes everyone want to listen to their “Siamese Dream” cassette and drive around in their Chevy Cavalier, waiting for their pager to blow up.  Anyway: Nationals 9, Cubs 1: Gio…

    It’s getting to be that time of year, so here is the first of two stabs at a Top 111 free agents list. The other will come shortly after the World Series concludes. Players are ranked based on how I believe teams perceive them, not how I view them myself. Essentially, I rank the players…

    Robinson Cano had a bunch of people on Twitter yelling at him when a ball got by him in the eighth inning of today’s game. Turns out he wasn’t loafing or committing any mental errors. Dude was hurt: Cano has tightness in his left hip, which he felt on the 8th inning play. Not sure…
