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

    May 10, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    Mets 10, Phillies 5: Cliff Lee was OK in his return, but he was on a pitch count and the bullpen — including reverted-to-longman-work Kyle Kendrick — got shellacked. Again. Ike Davis drove in three.  The Mets so thoroughly own Citizens Bank Park this year that the Phillies are gonna have to launch some awkward…

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

    May 9, 2012, 6:05 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers batter Josh Hamilton runs to the dugout after hitting his fourth two-run home run in the eight inning against the Baltimore Orioles in Baltimore

    Rangers 10, Orioles 3: Josh Hamilton: four bombs, eight RBI and 18 total bases on a 5 for 5 night.   Every time he does something awesome this year I imagine him muttering something about how dumb it was for Jon Daniels not to talk about a contract extension before the season began. Yankees 5,…

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

    Apr 16, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Houston Astros v Miami Marlins

    Marlins 5, Astros 4: Omar Infante and Hanley Ramirez hit home runs, finally putting that crazy home run sculpture into action. Somehow we all survived, though I’m not ruling out the possibility that we all got thrown into an alternate timeline or something and won’t truly realize it until all the crazy occult stuff starts…

  4. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 10, 2012, 5:56 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Texas Rangers

    Rangers 11, Mariners 5: According to Google Translate, a literal translation of “run support” in Japanese is サポートを実行する.  I have no idea if that covers the actual concept of run support, but I bet after last night Yu Darvish knows. He started out his major league debut by giving up four runs in the first inning…

  5. Players with more homers than the Phillies

    Apr 9, 2012, 6:07 PM EDT

    Hunter Pence fans

    Jay Bruce Miguel Cabrera Yoenis Cespedes Corey Hart Omar Infante Alex Avila Carlos Beltran Lucas Duda Prince Fielder Aaron Hill Eric Hosmer Adam LaRoche Matt Kemp Nick Markakis Carlos Pena Pablo Sandoval Carlos Santana Josh Willingham Yeah, I’m trolling a bit. But this has been an ugly offensive display. Not only do the 1-3 Phillies…

  6. Omar Infante hits two homers, leads the Marlins over the Phillies

    Apr 9, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Philadelphia Phillies

    The Phillies are now 1-3 and have scored eight total runs. That’s mildly alarming. Almost as alarming as Omar Infante going yard twice and, heck, Austin Kearns doing it even once. But that’s what happened today as the Marlins beat the Phillies 6-2 in the Philadelphia home opener. Infante went deep on Cole Hamels in…

  7. Astros shortstop Jed Lowrie begins season on disabled list

    Apr 6, 2012, 1:18 PM EDT

    Brad Mills, Jed Lowrie

    “Oft-injured” was used to describe Jed Lowrie for most of his Red Sox career and now his Astros career will be delayed by, you guessed it, an injury. Lowrie hurt his thumb diving back into second base on March 28, getting upset at Marlins infielder Omar Infante for blocking the bag, and Houston has placed…

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

    Apr 5, 2012, 6:00 AM EDT

    Cardinals Marlins Baseball

    Cardinals 4, Marlins 1:  I wrote up a more thorough summary last night if you’re curious. For now, though, let us note that Angel Hernandez is in midseason form already, calling Omar Infante safe at first base when he was clearly out in the bottom of the eighth. That should have been out number three,…

  9. MRI exam confirms no ligament damage for Jed Lowrie

    Mar 30, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Brad Mills, Jed Lowrie

    Jed Lowrie probably won’t be so mad at Omar Infante for blocking second base now that he knows his thumb injury isn’t that serious. Zachary Levine of the Houston Chronicle reports that an MRI exam revealed no ligament damage, so the original diagnosis of a sprained right thumb will stick. Lowrie is considered day-to-day for…

  10. Jed Lowrie injures thumb, gets angry at Omar Infante for blocking base

    Mar 28, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    Brad Mills, Jed Lowrie

    Jed Lowrie, whose Red Sox career was repeatedly derailed by injuries prior to being traded to the Astros this winter, suffered a sprained right thumb diving back into second base today. And he’s upset with Marlins infielder Omar Infante for blocking the base, telling Brian McTaggart of MLB.com: The throw kind of took him up…

  11. Emilio Bonifacio has a new catchphrase and hand gesture for the Marlins: Lo Viste

    Mar 2, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Emilio Bonifacio

    Beast mode? Antlers? A lot of teams develop little hand gesture things over the course of the season.  Emilio Bonifacio has one that seems to be catching on with the Marlins. Lo viste: Lo Viste?  When Miami Marlins outfielder Emilio Bonifacio holds a sideways ‘V’ with his index and middle fingers to his eye he is asking that question. Lo…

  12. Running down the rosters: Miami Marlins

    Feb 21, 2012, 11:30 PM EDT

    Marlins Spring Baseball

    The hopes are high with LeBron James having one of the greatest statistical seasons in NBA history and the Dolphins potentially landing Peyton Manning or Matt Flynn as their new quarterback. Also, the baseball team has a new name, a new stadium and a new star shortstop. Let’s see if that does the Marlins any…

  13. Marlins’ deal for Jose Reyes puts Hanley Ramirez in the spotlight

    Dec 4, 2011, 8:17 PM EDT

    Hanley Ramirez

    Hanley Ramirez likes Jose Reyes just fine, but he’s made it clear that he sees himself as a shortstop. With the Marlins now reportedly having landed Reyes, Ramirez is going to be asked to change positions, probably to third base. How that plays with Hanley could well determine the course of the Marlins franchise for these…
