    Oct 4, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Oakland Athletics

    Athletics 12, Rangers 5: Oakland shocks the world. No one on the planet had them pegged as a playoff team and, as recently as a week ago, no one figured they had a chance in hell at the division crown. Well, that’s what you get for pegging and figuring. As for the Rangers … just,…

    Oct 2, 2012, 6:08 PM EDT

    Safeco new dimensions

    Let’s face it, there’s one very big reason the Mariners are pulling in the fences at Safeco Field next year: Attendance/game 2007: 32,588 2008: 28,762 2009: 27,105 2010: 25,749 2011: 23,411 2012: 21,417 The Mariners peaked at more than 43,000 fans per game while leading the AL in attendance in 2001 and ’02.

    Oct 2, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Albert Pujols

    With an incredible 18 doubles in his last 33 games, Albert Pujols has made it back to 50 for the first time since 2004 and third time in his career. He got the last off Felix Hernandez in Monday’s victory over the Mariners. Pujols put himself in exclusive company as just the fifth player ever with three…

    The A’s went down 4-0 when the Mariners’ Michael Saunders launched a two-run homer to right field in the fourth inning on Saturday at O.co Coliseum. But the rest of the afternoon belonged to Oakland. Brandon Moss hit an RBI single in the bottom of the fourth, an RBI double in the bottom of the…

  5. Kevin Millwood is thinking about retirement

    Sep 29, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Kevin Millwood Getty

    Kevin Millwood pitched decently for the Mariners this this season before a sore shoulder put an early end to things this month, but the impending free agent told Greg Johns of MLB.com yesterday that he’s not sure whether he wants to come back for another season. “I’m going to go home and just relax and…

    UPDATE: He did it! Homer Bailey has done it. He threw a no-hitter tonight against the Pirates as part of a 1-0 win. Bailey struck out pinch-hitter Brock Holt swinging to begin the ninth before getting pinch-hitter Michael McKenry to pop out to left field for the second out. He then Alex Presley to pop…

    New York Mets starting pitcher R.A. Dickey reacts to the crowd after getting his 20th win of the season after the Mets defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates in their MLB National League baseball game at CitiField in New York

    Mets 6, Pirates 5: R.A. Dickey wins his 20th, striking out 13 in the process. I don’t care if wins aren’t supposed to matter. It’s cool. He’s old and he struggled for years and he has no freaking ligament in his elbow and he seems like a pretty cool guy and all of that and…

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

    Sep 26, 2012, 6:11 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 4, Marlins 3: The Braves clinch a playoff berth on a Freddie Freeman walkoff jack. It only guarantees them a slot in the one-game gimmicky thing next Friday, but that beats the hell out of last September. The only thing that would have made this better is if Heath Bell, as the the Marlins…

  9. Angels tie record, fan 20 Mariners in 5-4 victory

    Sep 26, 2012, 2:07 AM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    The Angels tied a major league record Tuesday as five pitchers combined to fan 20 batters in a 5-4 defeat of the Mariners. Zack Greinke struck out 13 and allowed one run in his five innings of work, but with his pitch count up to 110, the Angels decided to pull him early. That didn’t…

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

    Sep 20, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Miami Marlins

    Braves 3, Marlins 0:  Kris Medlen continues his astounding second half, shutting out the Marlins for eight innings. The Braves have won his last 21 starts, which is the most any team has won any one pitcher’s starts since the Yankees and Whitey Ford from 1950-53. Is there any doubt who will be starting the…

  11. Baseball announces the Roberto Clemente Award nominees

    Sep 18, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Clemente

    The Roberto Clemente Award goes to the Major Leaguer who “best exemplifies the game of baseball, sportsmanship, community involvement and the individual’s contribution to his team.” David Ortiz won it last year.  The 2012 nominees — one per team — were just announced and are listed below. One complaint first. It’s the same complaint I lodge every…

  12. Great news for the rest of the NL: Dodgers keep Ned Colletti around

    Sep 15, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Ned Colletti

    Sure, these new Dodgers may have as much buying power as any three other National League teams combined, but at least fans of other clubs can take heart that Ned Colletti will remain the one doing the spending after inking a mulityear contract extension on Saturday. Colletti’s Dodgers have the NL’s third-best record since he…

    Yu Darvish Getty

    Yu Darvish outdueled fellow countryman Hisashi Iwakuma last night by holding the Mariners to just one run on two hits over seven innings as part of a 9-3 victory. He struck out nine en route to his 15th win and now has 205 strikeouts over 176 2/3 innings this season. Darvish is the 16th rookie…

  14. Why the Strasburg-Rizzo-Dr. Yocum controversy matters

    Sep 13, 2012, 5:54 PM EDT

    Nationals Rizzo Baseball

    UPDATE: The he-said, he-said is over. Yocum has reversed himself. Call off the dogs. 5: 54 PM: As of now we have a he-said, he-said when it comes to Dr. Lewis Yocum and the Washington Nationals. Mike Rizzo and Scott Boras say that they consulted the man who performed Stephen Strasburg‘s Tommy John surgery before…

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

    Sep 13, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v San Diego Padres

    Brewers 8, Braves 2; Phillies 3, Marlins 1; Padres 3, Cardinals 2: Um, yeah, this keeps happening. The Cardinals, beneficiaries of an epic collapse by the Braves last year are themselves collapsing. And Philly and Milwaukee look like they’ll never lose again.  Just insanity in the NL wild card race these days. It’s kinda great.…

    New York Yankees v Boston Red Sox

    Just gonna warn you: this was written as cold medicine was taking effect, with wine — ill advised, I know — and while listening to the new xx album. Lots of heavy stuff here, not best for reason or, for that matter, the reading of box scores.  But we’ll soldier through because this is the…

  17. The Royals remain deluded in their hopes for Luke Hochevar

    Sep 11, 2012, 12:50 AM EDT

    Luke Hochevar

    Luke Hochevar has made $3.1 million while going 7-13 with a 5.36 ERA in 28 starts this season. One would think that increasing salary combined with his worst performance since 2009 would finally result in his departure at season’s end. However, GM Dayton Moore said the Royals have no intention of non-tendering Hochevar this winter.…

  18. 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…

    Bryce Harper

    In addition to the box scores, I also watched Bill Clinton last night. No matter what your politics, I hope we can agree that Clinton makes everyone want to listen to their “Siamese Dream” cassette and drive around in their Chevy Cavalier, waiting for their pager to blow up.  Anyway: Nationals 9, Cubs 1: Gio…

  20. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 111-81

    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…

  21. Jered Weaver could miss next start with tenderness in shoulder

    Sep 3, 2012, 9:31 PM EDT

    Jered Weaver Getty

    After ending the Athletics’ nine-game winning streak this afternoon, the Angels have now won 10 out of their last 13 games. While they are finally showing signs of life at just the right time, they could be without their best starter this week. According to Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com, Jered Weaver is questionable for his…

  22. Alex Rodriguez hitless in first rehab game

    Sep 1, 2012, 11:30 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez AP

    Alex Rodriguez began a minor league rehab assignment last night with High-A Tampa and went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts as the designated hitter. It was his first game action since suffering a fracture in his left hand when he was by a pitch by Mariners’ ace Felix Hernandez on July 24. Rodriguez…

  24. Felix Hernandez, Jason Vargas get claimed on trade waivers

    Aug 31, 2012, 2:56 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    While Joe Mauer‘s soiree on the waiver wire made big headlines, the fact that Felix Hernandez was out there too was unknown until Friday, when FOXSports.com’s Jon Morosi reported that both Hernandez and Jason Vargas have been claimed on waivers. Kevin Millwood cleared waivers and is thus eligible to be traded. However, he’d have to…

    Stephen Strasburg

    Major League Baseball celebrated Otherwise Good Teams Get Shut Out Night last night. It was quite festive. Marlins 9, Nationals 0: Look, maybe this will start a conversation no one thinks we’d ever have about an ace pitcher on a first place team, but maybe the Nationals should consider shutting Stephen Strasburg down (5 IP,…
