    Jul 24, 2013, 1:39 AM EDT

    Ike Davis, Marvin Hudson

    Mets first baseman Ike Davis attempted to bunt for a base hit in the bottom of the second inning with one out and the bases empty and his team down 1-0. He was facing an infield shift, so his thought was to drop a bunt down the third base line for an easy infield single,…

    Philadelphia Phillies v New York Mets

    Mets 5, Phillies 0: It’s getting close to the time for us to break out all of that “we are all witnesses” kind of hyperbole for Matt Harvey. Not that it’s really hyperbole. He’s simply toying with hitters at this point, throwing ungodly stuff in just about every count. Seven innings, three hits, ten strikeouts,…

Fifteen games last night and games every single day until the end of October at the very least. Ahhhhh. What the heck got into the water in Houston? Brandon Barnes went 5 for 5 and…

    The weekend preceding the All-Star Game festivities is always fun because the list of actual All-Stars expands by about ten players as injured players step down and would-be snubs finally get their call.

    Raul Ibanez Getty

    Raul Ibanez‘s incredible season continued last night against the Angels, as he went 3-for-4 with two home runs, a double, and three RBI as part of an 8-3 win. Ibanez, who turned 41 last month, now has 24 home runs through just 71 games this season. And the power surge is putting him in some…

    Jul 11, 2013, 2:14 PM EDT

    Erasmo Ramirez

    When the Mariners designated Jeremy Bonderman for assignment earlier this week the assumption was they’d add Erasmo Ramirez to the rotation as his replacement and sure enough they made the move official today. Ramirez is coming up from Triple-A to start this afternoon against the Red Sox, returning to the majors for the first time…

  15. Mariners designate Jeremy Bonderman for assignment

    Jul 8, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    Jeremy Bonderman

    Jeremy Bonderman returning to the majors for the first time since 2010 certainly went much better than I expected in that he wasn’t a complete disaster and actually strung together a few good starts, but after back-to-back poor outings the Mariners designated him for assignment. Bonderman finishes with a 4.93 ERA in seven starts overall,…

    Manny Ramirez will likely get his 2013 season started on Sunday with Triple-A Round Rock, reports Anthony Andro of FOX Sports Southwest.

    It’s been three years since Manny Ramirez was last a worthy major leaguer, hitting .311/.405/.510 in 66 games for the Dodgers in 2010. They then shipped him to the White Sox, where he was a disappointment in 24 games, hitting .261/.420/.319. In 2011, Ramirez signed a cheap deal with the Rays, played five games and…
