  1. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 50-1

    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…

  2. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 111-81

    Sep 5, 2012, 3:02 PM EDT

    Ben Sheets

    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…

  3. It’s all tied atop the AL East standings

    Sep 4, 2012, 10:41 PM EDT

    New York Yankees' Derek Jeter reacts during the ninth inning of their MLB American League baseball game against the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg

    As it turned out, the Orioles didn’t need to wait until the weekend series against the Yankees for their chance to top the AL East standings. Baltimore smoked Toronto 12-0 and the Yankees lost to the Rays 5-2 on Tuesday, setting up a tie for first place in the AL East. The Rays closed to…

  4. Robinson Cano has “tightness” in his hip

    Sep 3, 2012, 5:36 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    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…

  5. The Yankees lead in the AL East is down to one

    Sep 3, 2012, 5:02 PM EDT

    New York Yankees' Chris Dickerson reacts to being called out on strikes to end the fourth inning of their MLB American League baseball game against the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg

    The Yankees haven’t been in first place all season. As late as June 10 they were a half game back. But starting then they began to build a lead. By July 18 it was a ten game lead.  Since July 18 it has been whittled down to a single game. The Orioles, fresh off taking…

  6. Now that it’s final, what should we make of the Red Sox-Dodgers mega deal?

    Aug 25, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v Seattle Mariners

    I’m still shaking my head at the Dodgers-Red Sox deal, which is now finalized. Among the things that wouldn’t have made sense to me if you told me about them this time yesterday: I’m surprised that the Dodgers — whose owners just paid $2 billion for that team — took on $271 million in financial…

  7. Robinson Cano returns, Mark Teixeira sits with sore wrist

    Aug 17, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Mark Teixeira

    The Yankees have Robinson Cano back from a sore neck Friday in the opener of a three-game series against the Red Sox, but Mark Teixeira is absent from the lineup due to an inflamed wrist, the LoHud Yankees Blog reports. Teixeira initially injured the wrist on July 29 and missed a couple of games. “It’s…

  8. Stiff neck keeps Robinson Cano from Yankees lineup

    Aug 15, 2012, 5:55 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    It’s not often that Robinson Cano takes a seat, but the All-Star is out of the Yankees lineup on Wednesday due to a stiff neck. Cano has played in all 116 games for the Yankees this year, starting 110 of them at second base. He played in at least 159 games in each of the…

  9. CC Sabathia strikes out 10 in complete game win over Mariners

    Aug 3, 2012, 11:14 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    CC Sabathia and Russell Martin were paired together tonight for just the third time this season and the first time since April 11. We’ll likely see them work together more often the rest of the way. Sabathia allowed three runs on three hits and a walk in a complete game 6-3 victory over the Mariners…

  10. Mark Teixeira back in Yankees lineup after wrist injury

    Aug 3, 2012, 6:18 PM EDT

    Mark Teixeira

    Mark Teixeria pronounced himself ready to go after taking grounders and batting practice prior to Friday’s game and was inserted back into the lineup at first base after a two-game absence. Teixeira injured his left wrist Sunday and aggravated it while playing Monday. After an MRI Tuesday came back negative, he was diagnosed with inflammation.…

  11. Ernesto Frieri finally gave up a run, admits to being human

    Jul 16, 2012, 1:18 PM EDT

    Ernesto Frieri

    Ernesto Frieri came into yesterday’s game against the Yankees with a 0.00 ERA in 26.1 innings spread over 26 appearances for the Angels since they acquired him from the Padres in early May, but he’s perfect no more. Frieri walked Robinson Cano to lead off the ninth inning, Mark Teixeira followed with a two-run homer,…

  12. Jered Weaver’s fake to third, throw to first results in two outs for Angels

    Jul 15, 2012, 2:32 PM EDT

    angels yankees

    Jered Weaver hasn’t had a whole lot of luck shutting down the Yankees’ bats today, but he made them look like Little Leaguers on the basepaths. With runners on the corners and one out in the third inning today, Weaver did the fake-to-third, throw-to-first move and caught Robinson Cano napping. With Cano caught in a…

  13. Robinson Cano says Royals fans went “over the line” by yelling at his family members

    Jul 11, 2012, 9:33 AM EDT

    83rd MLB All-Star Game

    Robinson Cano had no problem with fans in Kansas City booing him for leaving Royals designated hitter Billy Butler out of the Home Run Derby, but when the harassment at Kauffman Stadium extended to his family members that was another story. Cano said he felt fans “went over the line” by yelling things at his…

  14. David Ortiz doesn’t want the Robinson Cano treatment

    Jul 10, 2012, 7:14 PM EDT

    David Ortiz

    Robinson Cano denied Kansas City’s Billy Butler a spot in the Home Run Derby on Monday and paid dearly, getting booed all night by the Kauffman Stadium faithful. David Ortiz isn’t having of that. Ortiz was voted in as the American League’s starting DH tonight, but he said he’ll take just one at-bat and then…

  15. Won’t somebody think of the poor superstars being booed?

    Jul 10, 2012, 9:40 AM EDT

    State Farm Home Run Derby

    I thought Robinson Cano getting mercilessly booed and jeered by the Kansas City fans at last night’s Home Run Derby was a bit … childish. I mean, really, we get it. You wanted Billy Butler in the Derby. I kind of did too, if for no other reason than it would allow me to say…

  16. Prince Fielder wins his second Home Run Derby crown

    Jul 9, 2012, 11:15 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder Getty

    We made it, you guys. Another Home Run Derby is in the rear view mirror, as Prince Fielder defeated Jose Bautista in the finals tonight to take home this year’s crown. It was Fielder’s second Home Run Derby win, the other coming back in 2009 in St. Louis. Ken Griffey, Jr., who won in 1994, 1998 and…

  17. Jose Canseco thinks he’d win the Home Run Derby

    Jul 9, 2012, 5:51 PM EDT

    Jose Canseco

    Well, of course he does. He’s Jose Canseco, after all. Unfortunately, Canseco, who turned 48 a week ago, wasn’t invited to the festivities by either Matt Kemp or Robinson Cano. Surely only because he wasn’t eligible to be invited, by virtue of his being out of the league for 11 years now. Still, I’d be…

  18. Mark Trumbo is your Home Run Derby favorite

    Jul 9, 2012, 5:03 PM EDT

    Mark Trumbo

    With Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium serving as the battleground, Monday’s Home Run Derby figured to yield fewer souveniers than usual. Kauffman is one of the game’s tough home run parks. Using Stats Inc. park factors, only Minnesota’s Target Field played tougher on home runs for AL parks  from 2009-11 and that only slightly. It’s played…

  19. American League All-Star lineup has Derek Jeter leading off, Josh Hamilton batting third

    Jul 9, 2012, 1:48 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    American League manager Ron Washington officially announced Justin Verlander as his starter at today’s press and also revealed his lineup, which features Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter leading off, Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton batting third, and Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista cleaning up: 1. Derek Jeter, SS 2. Robinson Cano, 2B 3. Josh Hamilton, LF 4.…

  20. Andrew McCutchen gets Home Run Derby call

    Jul 7, 2012, 9:26 PM EDT

    Andrew McCutchen

    Andrew McCutchen is going up against the big boys. The Pirates center fielder, who is listed at 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds, was named as Giancarlo Stanton‘s replacement in Monday’s Home Run Derby. McCutchen is tied for sixth in the National League with 16 homers this season, putting him on pace to smash his previous high…

  21. 2012 midseason awards: AL MVP

    Jul 6, 2012, 5:41 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Josh Hamilton was far and away the AL’s best player for two months, but he’s definitely come back to the pack after hitting just .223 with four homers in June. He struck out 35 times last month, nearly matching his total of 39 times from April and May combined. That said, he still leads the…

  22. Robinson Cano picks his AL Home Run Derby team

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:28 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    There was no talking Josh Hamilton into taking part in the Home Run Derby, so Robinson Cano went with some pretty good fallbacks Monday: Jose Bautista, Prince Fielder and Mark Trumbo. Bautista leads the AL with 26 homers at the moment, one more than Hamilton. Cano and Trumbo both have 20 apiece, while Fielder lags…

  23. Mat Latos, Robinson Cano are your players of the week

    Jul 2, 2012, 3:51 PM EDT

    Mat Latos

    Gosh, it seems like these things happen every week! Anyway: Mat Latos is your NL Player of the Week. Latos was 2-0 in back-to-back complete games, while striking out 20 and allowing but a single earned run in each start. Robinson Cano takes the honors in the AL.  He hit .414 with two doubles, four…

  24. Matt Kemp picks his Home Run Derby squad

    Jul 1, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    Carlos Gonzalez

    Squad captain Matt Kemp announced Sunday that he’s chosen the Rockies’ Carlos Gonzalez, the Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton and the Cardinals’ Carlos Beltran to participate alongside himself in the Home Run Derby. Kemp plans to take part in the contest, even though he’s still expected to be on the disabled list as he continues his recovery…
