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

    May 16, 2013, 6:31 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    Mariners 12, Yankees 2: This one was over almost before it started, with Phil Hughes getting knocked around for seven runs in the first inning, which he did not escape. Raul Ibanez hit two homers and drove in six off his old team. Which, I imagine, will cause some columnist who has been lauding Brian…

  2. Franklin Gutierrez ready for rehab assignment

    May 15, 2013, 7:14 PM EDT

    From MLB.com’s Greg Johns comes word that Mariners center fielder Franklin Gutierrez ran the bases for a second time Wednesday in Seattle and is set to begin playing in minor league rehab games on either Thursday or Friday of this week. Gutierrez has been on the 15-day disabled list since April 23 due to a…

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

    May 15, 2013, 6:26 AM EDT

    Andrew McCutchen, Jean Segura

    Pirates 4, Brewers 3: Andrew McCutchen with a walkoff bomb in the 12th. John Axford surrendered the lead in the eighth. He’s got a nifty 9.20 ERA now. Dodgers 2, Nationals 0: Clayton Kershaw stuck out 11 in eight and two-thirds shutout innings. He tossed 132 pitches: the most in his career and the most…

  4. Yankees School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

    tumblr_m94ifiK88g1ro8ysbo1_1280

    Every now and again — well, let’s face it, pretty much every day now — I get another email telling me that Vernon Wells — Vernon Bleepin’ Wells — just got another two hits with another homer with another three RBIs and so on. The emails are from Michael Schur, Parks and Recreation executive producer,…

  5. Justin Masterson shuts out the Yankees in 1-0 Indians win

    May 13, 2013, 2:51 PM EDT

    masterson getty

    Cleveland and New York are playing a doubleheader today and the Indians took Game 1 behind a complete-game shutout by Justin Masterson, who improves to 6-2 with a 3.14 ERA on the season. Jason Kipnis‘ solo homer in the first inning ended up being the only scoring in a 1-0 game. Masterson’s complete-game shutout is…

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

    May 13, 2013, 5:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Chicago White Sox

    White Sox 3, Angels 0: Chris Sale was fantastic. And not just because of that suh-weet 1983 throwback jersey. A perfect game into the seventh and then the hit that inning to Mike Trout was all the Angels could muster. Indians 4, Tigers 3: Watched this one with the girlfriend’s parents. Tigers fans. Let’s just…

  7. Should the Phillies think about trading Ryan Howard?

    May 11, 2013, 10:45 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Philadelphia Phillies

    First baseman Ryan Howard, 33 years old and still suffering lingering effects of an Achilles injury suffered in Game Five of the 2011 NLDS, should be on the trading block according to David Murphy of the Philadelphia Daily News. The lefty slugger entered tonight’s game against the Diamondbacks with a .262/.299/.476 line and is in…

  8. Hisashi Iwakuma continues to quietly dominate

    May 11, 2013, 1:05 PM EDT

    Hisashi Iwakuma AP

    It’s tough to get much attention when AL ERA leader Felix Hernandez is your teammate, but Hisashi Iwakuma is quietly emerging as a formidable sidekick at the top of the Mariners’ rotation. Iwakuma gave up two runs over seven innings last night in a 6-3 win over the Athletics. The 32-year-old struck out nine and…

  9. The awesomeness of Miller and Harvey

    May 11, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

    Colorado Rockies v St. Louis Cardinals

    Last year, of course, we were lucky enough to get two of the most precocious young players in baseball history — Mike Trout put up a historic season at age 20, Bryce Harper put up a superb one at age 19. It was the greatest young duo to hit baseball since 1928 — when Jimmie…

  10. MLB won’t approve pink-label MaxBats on Mother’s Day

    May 10, 2013, 6:21 PM EDT

    from @MaxBatBaseball

    It seems Louisville Slugger has a monopoly on the pink labels for Mother’s Day bats permitted by MLB. The Orioles’ Nick Markakis, the Nationals’ Jayson Werth and the Twins’ Trevor Plouffe were among the players informed by the league Friday that they won’t be able to use their custom label MaxBats on Sunday. Of course,…

  11. Dan Shaughnessy essentially accuses David Ortiz of taking PEDs

    May 9, 2013, 8:23 AM EDT

    dan shaughnessy

    David Ortiz is off to an great start. So of course he must be cheating. At least that’s Dan Shaugnessy’s thought process: I went to Ortiz Tuesday afternoon in the Sox clubhouse and put some hard questions to him. I told him he looks dirty. Did he hear the fans in Toronto chanting, “Steroids!’’? “No,…

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

    May 9, 2013, 6:56 AM EDT

    Angel Hernandez, Bob Melvin

    Indians 4, Athletics 3: Angel Hernandez said there was not enough evidence with which to overturn the original call of double on Adam Rosales‘ would-be game-tying home run.  Of course, the replay clearly shows that it was a home run, with the ball hitting off the railing above the wall.  This is pretty simple: If…

  13. Do the Houston Astros have what it takes?

    May 6, 2013, 10:28 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Houston Astros

    The Houston Astros have five pseudo regulars in thelr lineup — FIVE — who are striking out more than once per game. This is a rather astounding achievement, possibly historic, and it leads to my prediction that this team will get no-hit before the year’s out, maybe twice. They have already flirted with no-nos —…

  14. R.A. Dickey surrenders grand slam as struggles continue

    May 4, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    dickey getty

    Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey appeared to be getting back on track having logged quality starts in three out of his last four appearances entering this afternoon’s match against the offensively-impotent Mariners. Over six innings today, though, the right-hander allowed three home runs, including a first inning lead-off home run to Michael Saunders (his first…

  15. King Felix spins another beaut

    May 4, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Toronto Blue Jays

    Clay Buchholz is, without question, the early leader for the Cy Young Award. But there are a lot of good pitchers in the AL who stand to take the lead if Buchholz falters. One of ‘em is a usual suspect: Felix Hernandez. And last night he was his typical dominant self. Hernandez threw eight shutout innings…

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

    May 2, 2013, 6:57 AM EDT

    Mets Marlins Baseball

    Mets 7, Marlins 6:  Jordany Valdespin hit a pinch-hit three run homer in the sixth to put the Mets up to stay, breaking their six game losing streak. But Terry Collins is on the hot seat! No he isn’t! Yes he is! She’s my daughter! [slap] My sister! [slap!] My daughter … Nationals 2, Braves 0: The Nats finally…

  17. Lance Lynn opens 5-0 for second straight season

    May 1, 2013, 6:10 PM EDT

    Lance Lynn

    Cardinals right-hander Lance Lynn beat the Reds on Wednesday to become the NL’s first five-game winner this year. In so doing, he started a second straight season 5-0. The 25-year-old Lynn is the fifth pitcher in 2000 to start back-to-back seasons 5-0. Pedro Martinez actually did it three straight years: Martinez: 5-0 in 2000, 6-0…

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

  19. 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…

  20. White Sox acquire outfielder Casper Wells from Athletics

    Apr 29, 2013, 11:13 PM EDT

    Casper Wells AP

    Casper Wells is on the move again, as the White Sox have acquired him from the Athletics for cash considerations. Wells is now with his fourth organization in the past month. His journey began when the Blue Jays claimed him off waivers from the Mariners after he lost out to Jason Bay for a roster…

  21. Mariners activate Michael Saunders from the disabled list

    Apr 29, 2013, 5:31 PM EDT

    Michael Saunders Getty

    Mariners outfielder Michael Saunders is back from the disabled list after missing the past two-and-a-half weeks with a sprained right shoulder. Saunders wasn’t quite ready to rejoin Seattle’s lineup when first eligible, but is expected to draw most of the starts in center field with Franklin Gutierrez out. Prior to injuring his shoulder Saunders started…

  22. Harper, Trout and the future

    Apr 29, 2013, 11:33 AM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Washington Nationals

    In honor of Bryce Harper playing his 162nd career game, here is the list of the top 12 home run hitters through their age 20 seasons: 1. Mel Ott, 61 2. Tony Conigliaro, 56 3. Alex Rodriguez, 41 4. Ken Griffey, 38 5. Frank Robinson, 38 6. Mickey Mantle, 36 7. Mike Trout, 35 8.…

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

    Apr 29, 2013, 5:40 AM EDT

    Russell Martin

    Pirates 9, Cardinals 0: Two homers for Russell Martin and a strong start from Jeff Locke. The Pirates — the Pittsburgh Pirates — are in first place in the National League Central. This goes with the Royals being in first place in the AL Central. I predicted each of these teams would be better this…

  24. For first time ever, Jason Bay is a leadoff man

    Apr 26, 2013, 6:29 PM EDT

    Jason Bay

    Facing a lefty in Anaheim’s C.J. Wilson on Friday, the Mariners have Jason Bay leading off for the first time in his career. With Franklin Gutierrez sidelined, Endy Chavez had been leading off for the Mariners of late, but he’s only an option there against righties. Bay, who is hitting .220 overall, is 4-for-14 with…

  25. Michael Morse struggling since returning from finger injury

    Apr 26, 2013, 12:46 PM EDT

    Michael Morse

    Michael Morse got off to a huge start for the Mariners, hitting .293 with six homers in his first 10 games, but then he fractured his right pinkie finger and has struggled since returning. Morse sat out just four days with the injury, but is 6-for-37 (.162) with zero homers and 12 strikeouts in nine…
