  1. The American League wins the 2013 All-Star Game 3-0

    Jul 16, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    84th MLB All-Star Game

    Another Midsummer Classic in the bag. Another scoresheet which looks like a train wreck, but that’s how the All-Star Game rolls. And the American League rolled to victory here at Citi Field, beating the National League 3 to 0. As with most All-Star Games it was the small moments which were the most memorable. Here…

  2. Yoenis Cespedes puts on a first round show in the Home Run Derby

    Jul 15, 2013, 10:04 PM EDT

    Chevrolet Home Run Derby

    Following the Home Run Derby from on-site is … weird. It’s a made for TV event, really. And when you’re sitting out behind the left field foul pole in a temporary press box that is sort of insulated from the sounds of the ballpark you lose your gravity pretty quickly. I had the MLB.com feed…

  3. Get your 2013 Home Run Derby talk here

    Jul 15, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    home-run-derby

    We get it. Not everybody is into the Home Run Derby. But some of you are and that’s totally fine. We’re here if you want to talk (or complain) about it. Feel free to use this as an open thread to discuss the festivities at Citi Field this evening. Below you’ll find the eight participants…

  4. Previewing the Home Run Derby: Prince Fielder aims for third crown

    Jul 15, 2013, 3:44 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    Prince Fielder can join Ken Griffey Jr. as the only three-time winners of the Home Run Derby on Monday night, but to do it, he’ll have to best Chris Davis, who is currently on pace to hit 60 bombs this year. This year’s Home Run Derby field is unusual in that it features just three…

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

    Jul 11, 2013, 7:01 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Angels 13, Cubs 2: It’s almost as if Josh Hamilton hadn’t totally forgotten how to play baseball or something. Go figure. Two homers and five RBI in this romp. One of his homers was back-to-back with a Pujols home run. First time that’s happened this year. Nationals 5, Phillies 1: The Nats hit four homers…

  6. The 2013 Home Run Derby participants have been announced

    Jul 8, 2013, 6:49 PM EDT

    home-run-derby

    Just announced on ESPN’s SportsCenter, here are the participants for the 2013 Home Run Derby, which will take place next Monday at 8 p.m. ET at Citi Field in New York. Keep in mind that all of the players selected were also chosen for the All-Star Game. So there’s no Giancarlo Stanton here. Oh well.…

  7. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    Jul 7, 2013, 8:47 AM EDT

    fielder, cabrera getty

    The Tigers are beginning to create some distance again in the American League Central standings. Anibal Sanchez pitched efficiently in his first start back from the 15-day disabled list and Torii Hunter, Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder combined for a total of six RBI as Detroit topped Cleveland 9-4 on Saturday afternoon at Progressive Field.…

  9. Video: Prince Fielder hits home run off catwalk at Tropicana Field

    Jun 29, 2013, 10:06 AM EDT

    Prince Fielder AP

    Tigers slugger Prince Fielder hit a doozy of a home run last night at Tropicana Field. Facing Rays left-hander Cesar Ramos in the top of the eighth inning, he turned on one and launched it off the catwalk in right field. Now that’s a moonshot. Chris Iott of MLive.com notes that Fielder is the first…

  10. Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder power Max Scherzer to 12-0

    Jun 28, 2013, 10:30 PM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    Miguel Cabrera hit two home runs and drove in three runs and Prince Fielder added a two-run homer of his own to back starter Max Scherzer, who improved to 12-0. Cabrera bumped his Triple Crown stats to .377/24/81. He leads the Majors in average and RBI, but trails Orioles first baseman Chris Davis (28) in…

  11. Starlin Castro snaps 269-game consecutive starts streak

    Jun 25, 2013, 6:22 PM EDT

    starlin castro getty

    Cal Ripken Jr. can go ahead and pop some bubbly. As noted by MLB.com’s Carrie Muskat, Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday night’s game against the Brewers. It is the first time he’s been absent from Chicago’s order in the last 269 games, which was the longest active consecutive…

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

    Jun 5, 2013, 7:03 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Philadelphia Phillies

    Phillies 7, Marlins 3: John Mayberry had a walkoff grand slam. Probably good that the Phillies won this one. After a brutally bad call by Bob Davidson in the bottom of the eighth on a Ben Revere takeout slide, the crowd didn’t stop letting the umps hear it. Apparently none of the tens of thousands…

  13. The first round of AL All-Star balloting results have been released

    Jun 3, 2013, 1:38 PM EDT

    2013 All Star Game Logo

    Gallup has predicted that Jeff Francoeur will lead the balloting. Karl Rove says that these results are skewed. But this is what MLB has so far for the first round of All-Star balloting, with leaders by position, with vote totals: First Base: Chris Davis, 1,176,016 Second Base: Robinson Cano 1,235,230 Third Base: Miguel Cabrera, 1,500,165 Shortstop: Elvis Andrus, 727,555…

  14. Miguel Cabrera inching towards AL home run lead

    Jun 1, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Detroit Tigers - Game Two

    Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera sent a grand slam deep into the left field seats in the fourth inning this afternoon against the Orioles, his 17th home run on the season. Current leader Chris Davis, sitting on 19 homers, did not leave the confines of Camden Yards today. Cabrera already leads the American League in…

    May 24, 2013, 6:59 AM EDT

    Cleveland Indians v Boston Red Sox

    Indians 12, Red Sox 3: The Tribe’s bats had a nice night with Yan Gomes, Mark Reynolds and Michael Bourn all racking up multiple RBI. Oh, and you may or may not have heard this, but Terry Francona, currently the Indians’ manager, used to be the Red Sox manager and this was his first time back in Boston since he…

  16. The NL All-Star starting lineup will outshine the AL’s

    May 22, 2013, 11:42 PM EDT

    Justin Upton

    OK, so there hasn’t been any actual All-Star ballot results released yet. That doesn’t mean I can’t do my fun little exercise here. What follows is my best guess at the All-Star Game starting lineups. National League CF Andrew McCutchen 2B Brandon Phillips 1B Joey Votto LF Justin Upton RF Bryce Harper 3B David Wright…

  17. Apparently Miguel Cabrera’s 2013 has made his 2012 better somehow

    May 20, 2013, 9:18 AM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera AP

    Bill posted about Cabrera’s big night last night, and this morning Twitter is dominated by folks noting just how utterly ridiculous Cabrera has been so far this year. And make no mistake, he has been. He’s hitting .387/.457/.659 and leads the AL in runs, hits, RBI, batting average, on-base percentage, OPS, and total bases. Just…

    May 3, 2013, 6:42 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Milwaukee Brewers

    Cardinals 6, Brewers 5: Jake Westbrook with career win 100. And get this: dude allowed only one run in six innings and his ERA increased. Which, yes, will happen when you come in at 0.98. It’s now an unsightly 1.10. He talked after the game how 100 was a goal for him. And while, no,…

  19. April leaders: MLB’s best after one month

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

    Apr 30, 2013, 6:27 AM EDT

    Brandon Moss

    Athletics 10, Angels 8: Nineteen innings. Six and a half hours. Sixteen pitchers, including A’s Opening Day starter Brett Anderson who pitched five and a third innings out of the pen. The Angels, for their part, had two pitchers — Tommy Hanson who started it and Jerome Williams who came in later — each of…

  21. Shin-Soo Choo has been hit by more pitches than every team in baseball

    Apr 23, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Cincinnati Reds

    I wrote yesterday about how Reds outfielder Shin-Soo Choo had been hit by more pitches than any player in baseball history through this point in the season and then last night he got plunked again. Choo has now been hit 10 times in 19 games. You can read yesterday’s post to see how far ahead…

    Apr 22, 2013, 6:22 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Angels 4, Tigers 3: Watched most of this one as I painted a couple of rooms in my house. Two highlights of the game for me were (1) overhearing my girlfriend use some really bad language the second or third time the Tigers left the bases loaded; and (2) Tigers color commentator Rod Allen, when describing…

  23. So this is how the Mariners-Tigers game ended

    Apr 18, 2013, 9:22 AM EDT

    Screen Shot 2013-04-18 at 7.08.42 AM

    It went into the wee, wee hours. There were 40 strikeouts between the two teams. And then it all ended with the Tigers relying on their bullpen and the Mariners relying upon the foot speed of Justin Smoak. Not exactly a strength against strength situation. The game-ending play: Smoak on first, Dustin Ackley at the…

    Jay Bruce

    Reds 1, Phillies 0: CONTINUED FROM TUESDAY NIGHT: Nine minutes, a quick score and then the whole thing was over. About as good a night as you coulda hoped for when you were 17, but for the Phillies this had to be disappointing. Reds 11, Phillies 2: Well, maybe not as disappointing as this. The…

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

    Apr 15, 2013, 5:55 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics

    Tigers 10, Athletics 1: Austin Jackson was 4 for 6 with three RBI. Prince Fielder is now hitting .429/.527/.833. Once this team gets its bullpen figured out, man, watch out. Diamondbacks 1, Dodgers 0: When Nick Swisher hit a walkoff homer single in a 1-0 game the other day I thought to myself, “man, you don’t…
