  1. HBT Weekend Wrap

    Wrap

    What you missed while you were beating on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past, while watching 23 straight showings of a most silly and inappropriate film adaptation: They imposed a No Mo Zone in Kansas City Roy Halladay apologized The Marlins should apologize Just when you thought you were rid of Chris Carpenter Just…

  2. Roy Halladay apologizes to Phillies fans

    It’s the night for apologies, apparently. Jack Morris apologized to Clay Buchholz earlier; now, we have Roy Halladay apologizing to Phillies fans for having pitched poorly and ultimately landing on the disabled list for a lengthy period of time. Halladay was booed walking off the field in the third inning of his start against the…

  3. Phil Humber could lose spot in Astros rotation

    May 6, 2013, 11:55 PM EDT

    Houston Astros v Boston Red Sox

    Phil Humber the 21st perfect game in baseball history on April 21 against the Seattle Mariners last year, and it’s been all downhill ever since. The once-prized prospect in the New York Mets system has logged a 7.79 ERA since the perfecto over 121.1 innings. At 8.82, his 2013 ERA is the worst in the…

    Washington Nationals v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 8, Nationals 1: That’s nine straight wins by the Braves over the Nats dating back to last season. Someone should ask Danny Espinosa if he’s impressed by the Braves yet. Tim Hudson notched his 200th career win. In pretty grand style, too: he homered and doubled in addition to pitching seven strong innings. Indians…

  5. Indians bang out 14 runs in first two innings against Astros

    Apr 20, 2013, 8:28 PM EDT

    Cleveland Indians v Houston Astros

    We knew that the 5-11 Astros, with a -20 run differential, were bad — but not this bad. The 5-10 Indians, with a -21 run differential themselves, bashed Astros starter Phil Humber for eight runs while recording only one out in the first inning. Dallas Keuchel relieved Humber after ten batters and recorded the final…

    Erik Bedard Getty

    Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports that the Astros have signed left-hander Erik Bedard to a minor league contract with a spring training invite. Bedard, who turns 34 in March, posted a 5.01 ERA and 118/56 K/BB ratio over 125 2/3 innings last season with the Pirates. He actually pitched pretty well early on, compiling a…

  8. 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…

    Orioles Tolleson, Machado, and Betemit celebrate defeating the Blue Jays during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Orioles 12, Blue Jays 0: Zach Britton throwing seven shutout innings + Mark Reynolds driving in four + Yankees losing = First place for the Orioles dudes. Rays 5, Yankees 2: This is that Yankees loss I just mentioned. Freddy Garcia allowed five runs over five. I know this isn’t the case, but as I sit…

  10. Miguel Cabrera hits two bombs to reach 300 homers

    Jul 22, 2012, 6:08 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Miguel Cabrera took Phil Humber deep twice Sunday to reach 300 career homers and help the Tigers top the White Sox 6-4. Cabrera’s second homer made him the second Venezuelan to reach 300 career homers. The first was Andres Galarraga, who finished his career with 399. Quintin Berry and Brennan Boesch also homered for Detroit…

    Jun 6, 2012, 6:51 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Nationals 7, Mets 6: The legend of Bryce Harper grows. A game-winning hit in the 12th inning. What say you, Harper? “I’m happy to get the W, of course. I’m happy to get that walk-off hit, but I don’t like going 2 for 7,” Harper said. “I don’t like striking out twice in one game,…

  12. Jarrod Parker’s no-hit bid broken up in the eighth inning

    Jun 5, 2012, 12:28 AM EDT

    Jarrod Parker AP

    UPDATE: Parker is done after eight shutout innings. He gave up just the one hit while throwing 69 out of 111 pitches for strikes and now owns a 2.40 ERA over his first eight starts with Oakland. If everything pans out the way the A’s hope, he’ll have many more chances at a no-no in…

  13. Paul Konerko exits the game after being beaned in the face

    May 18, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    konerko fenway

    Paul Konerko left today’s game against the Cubs when, in the third inning, he was hit in the face by a Jeff Samardzija pitch. Konerko had homered off Samardzija in the first inning, but based on Samardzija’s reaction, it probably wasn’t a purpose pitch. He walked to the plate to check on Konerko. He’s been…

    May 8, 2012, 6:05 AM EDT

    Justin Turner, Jordany Valdespin

    Mets 5, Phillies 2: I had been agitating for Jonathan Papelbon to pitch more. Specifically in tie games.  Well, he did here and gave up a game-losing three-run homer to Jordany Valdespin. I suppose we’ll let Cholly run the team from here on out. Marlins 4, Astros 0: Carlos Zambrano with the three-hit shutout pushes his ERA…

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

    Apr 30, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    San Diego Padres v San Francisco Giants

    Giants 4, Padres 1: Madison Bumgarner keeps rolling (7.2 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 6K). After the game he explained his recent success by saying “I’m just trying to make pitches.”  I’ve heard that for 30 years and I’m still not quite sure what it means but I always like hearing it for some reason.…

    Apr 27, 2012, 5:50 AM EDT

    Brandon Allen

    Rays 4, Angels 3: Pinch hit walkoff bomb from Brandon Allen to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Albert Pujols got a hit but he was thrown out at second trying to stretch it into a double. I think that’s what the fancy commentators on those evening baseball television programs call “pressing.” The Angels…

  17. Phil Humber far from perfect in loss to Red Sox

    Apr 26, 2012, 10:15 PM EDT

    AP Phil Humber

    Phil Humber tossed the 21st perfect game in MLB history Saturday against the Mariners, but things were different from the very first batter tonight against the Red Sox. Humber walked leadoff man Mike Aviles before striking out Ryan Sweeney swinging. After Aviles stole second base, Dustin Pedroia singled and Adrian Gonzalez delivered an RBI double.…

  18. Matt Kemp does not win the NL Player of the Week Award

    Apr 23, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Freddie Freeman, Henry Blanco

    It’s been such a regular thing lately that I feel it newsworthy to point out when Matt Kemp doesn’t win the player of the week award.  This week Freddie Freeman did.  In the AL it was Phil Humber. Freeman went 11-for-23 with three homers, five doubles, 25 total bases and 14 RBI on the week, leading…

  19. Can we please just let Phil Humber have his perfect game in peace?

    Apr 23, 2012, 10:31 AM EDT

    humber gray getty

    UPDATE: Barra responds. Fair enough: he’s not upset about the call, he’s upset at the media’s reaction to it, Fox not showing the reruns, etc. 10:31 AM: Because my parents had the kids and me over for dinner — and because my parents are old people who like to have dinner at 4:30pm — I…

  20. Kevin Mulvey is back with the Mets on a minor league contract

    Kevin Mulvey’s career has officially come full circle, as the Mets announced this morning that he has returned to the club on a minor league deal. Mulvey, who turns 27 in May, was a second-round pick of the Mets back in 2006 and was later dealt to the Twins along with Carlos Gomez, Phil Humber…
