  1. 2012 midseason awards: AL MVP

    Jul 6, 2012, 5:41 PM EST

    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…

  2. The Anti-All Stars

    Jul 6, 2012, 2:00 PM EST

    Seattle Mariners v Chicago Cubs

    Every year Scott Miller of CBS Sports.com puts out his version of the Razzies to Major League Baseball’s Oscars. It’s his Anti-All Stars team, collecting the worst and dimmest the league had to offer at each position. His new one is out now. Mariners fans and Yankees-haters will take note that despite all the early…

  3. 2012 midseason awards: AL Cy Young

    Jul 5, 2012, 3:53 PM EST

    Chris Sale

    The AL Cy Young balloting turned into a rout last year, as Justin Verlander lapped the field on his way to taking league MVP honors. At the midway point, this year’s Cy is still very much in doubt. Here’s the league top 10 in ERA: Jered Weaver (LAA): 9-1, 2.13 ERA, 68/21 K/BB in 88…

  4. Mariners dump Hector Noesi from the rotation to Triple-A

    Jul 5, 2012, 3:15 PM EST

    Boston Red Sox v Seattle Mariners

    Hector Noesi won a spot in the Mariners’ rotation during spring training after coming over from the Yankees in the Jesus Montero-for-Michael Pineda swap, but after going 2-11 with a 5.77 ERA in 17 starts he’s headed back to the minors. Noesi is 25 years old and still has a future as a potential fourth…

  5. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and higlights

    Jul 2, 2012, 5:30 AM EST

    Ramon Santiago, Austin Jackson

    It was a really rough weekend for people in Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C. Storms, trees down, power outages and intense heat made it for a really crappy weekend. We were fairly lucky here at Chez Craigy. The power was out for only about 24 hours before coming back Saturday evening.…

    Los_Angeles_Dodgers_Logo

    According to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times, the Dodgers have signed first-round pick Corey Seager for $2.35 million. He’ll get $400,000 over MLB’s $1.95 million estimated slot value for the 18th overall pick. Seager, 18, was considered one of the best high school bats in this year’s draft class. Many think he’ll have…

  8. Franklin Gutierrez placed on 7-day disabled list with a concussion

    Jun 29, 2012, 9:33 PM EST

    Franklin Gutierrez AP

    The Mariners announced a short while ago that they have placed Franklin Gutierrez on the 7-day disabled list with a concussion. Steve Delabar, a right-handed reliever, was called up from Triple-A Tacoma to replace him on the active roster. Gutierrez was diagnosed with a mild concussion after he was hit in the side of the…

  9. Franklin Gutierrez continues to be snakebit, gets hit in the face with a pickoff throw

    Jun 29, 2012, 11:21 AM EST

    Boston Red Sox v Seattle Mariners

    Franklin Gutierrez hadn’t played all year until a couple of weeks ago because of multiple health problems including, but not limited to, a torn pectoral muscle and a heel injury. In the past he had some awful stomach intestinal illness. He just can’t catch a break. And it’s not getting better. From last night’s game: Gutierrez led…

  10. Felix Hernandez strikes out 13 Red Sox in shutout victory

    Jun 29, 2012, 8:49 AM EST

    Felix Hernandez

    Between this, the Giants-Reds game and my well-known yet uncontrollable pitching fetish, I am really not liking living in the eastern time zone today. If NBC would act on my long-standing request to set me up in a nice little flat in that interwar Pacific Heights co-op I would have been awake for both of…

  11. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 29, 2012, 5:40 AM EST

    Detroit Tigers v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Pirates 5, Phillies 4: All of you who predicted that A.J. Burnett was going to rattle off eight straight wins at some point this year, please cut it out because you’re lying. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go piss off a bunch of Yankees fans by suggesting that Brian Cashman should trade for…

  12. Where did all of the doubles go?

    Jun 28, 2012, 6:18 PM EST

    Does this look like a doubles swing to you?

    It’s still early enough to turn around, but there are a lot of hitters this year with many more homers than doubles: Jose Bautista – 25 HR, 9 2B Adam Dunn – 24 HR, 10 2B Curtis Granderson – 21 HR, 9 2B Carlos Beltran – 20 HR, 9 2B Dayan Viciedo – 13 HR,…

  13. Is it time for Mariners to demote Dustin Ackley, Justin Smoak to Triple-A?

    Jun 28, 2012, 12:43 PM EST

    Dustin Ackley, Justin Smoak

    Thanks in large part to Kyle Seager and Michael Saunders, the Mariners offense hasn’t been as bad as expected this year. The team is struggling mightily right now, though, having scored just four runs in four games, and if changes are going to come, this would seem to be right part of the schedule to…

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

    Jun 28, 2012, 5:40 AM EST

    Los Angeles Dodgers v San Francisco Giants

    Giants 3, Dodgers 0: The season nadir for the Dodgers who got swept by their arch rivals in three straight shutouts and lost their lead in the division. And, to add insult to injury, Andre Ethier got hurt. Wait, that’s adding injury to insult I suppose. Ah, you know what I mean. Oh, and Timmay…

  15. Oakland’s three-Brandon infield has a weak debut

    Jun 27, 2012, 6:39 PM EST

    Spot the Brandons

    The A’s today tried playing Brandon Moss at first, Brandon Hicks at second and Brandon Inge at third. And they got a win anyway. Of course, the Brandons didn’t really contribute, combining to go 0-for-9 with five strikeouts. Inge also committed an error. Jarrod Parker was able to overcome it all, though, stirking out nine…

  16. Injury Wednesday continues. Next up: Kevin Millwood

    Jun 27, 2012, 4:35 PM EST

    Kevin Millwood

    They’re dropping like flies out there today. Next up Mariners starter Kevin Millwood! Millwood had to leave today’s game against the A’s with an apparent groin injury.  He’s had groin issues this year already, and those things are pesky. Seriously. I tweaked my left groin in December and it’s still sort of messed up, and I…

  17. The case for Tom Wilhelmsen as the Mariners’ All-Star

    Jun 26, 2012, 6:18 PM EST

    Tom Wilhemsen

    It won’t be Ichiro. It might not be King Felix. Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times believes that Tom Wilhelmsen should be the Mariners’ lone All-Star this year. It’d sure be a nice story if it comes to fruition. Wilhelmsen, originally a seventh-round pick of the Brewers in 2002, was suspended in 2004 after twice…

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

    Jun 26, 2012, 6:10 AM EST

    Kevin Youkilis

    Twins 4, White Sox 1: Kevin Youkilis made his Chisox debut and went one for four in a loss and gave us this odd picture of him in a White Sox uniform. Adam Dunn went 0 for 4 and struck out four times, but the list of things he gives less of a crap about…

  19. How much longer will the Rangers hit Michael Young fifth?

    Jun 25, 2012, 6:56 PM EST

    Michael Young

    There are 178 players with at least 150 plate appearances against right-handed pitching this season. Michael Young ranks 172nd in the group in OPS: 169. Rickie Weeks (Mil): .580 170. Sean Rodriguez (TB): .576 171. Danny Espinosa (Was): .575 172. Michael Young (Tex): .566 173. Jamey Carroll (Min): .565 174. Orlando Hudson (SD/ChW): .562 175.…

  20. Jason Vargas joins A.J. Burnett in the double-digit runs club

    Jun 21, 2012, 1:13 PM EST

    Jason Vargas

    A.J. Burnett‘s disastrous outing against the Cardinals on May 2 remains the gold standard for horrendous starts this season, but now he has company in the double-digit runs allowed club. Jason Vargas coughed up 10 runs in 4.1 innings against the Diamondbacks yesterday, including serving up five homers. Arizona hitters went 10-for-22 (.455) with seven…

  21. Michael Pineda won’t be cleared to throw before September

    Jun 20, 2012, 4:06 PM EST

    Michael Pineda Reuters

    While in town to be examined by team doctors yesterday Michael Pineda made a surprise appearance in the Yankees clubhouse, hanging out with the new teammates he barely got to know before undergoing shoulder surgery in April. Pineda described himself as “feeling better right now” but was also quick to note that he hasn’t been…

  22. Ichiro Suzuki set for 2,500th hit; will he get to 3,000?

    Jun 19, 2012, 2:27 PM EST

    Ichiro Suzuki

    Probably tonight or perhaps tomorrow, Ichiro Suzuki will get his 2,500th hit as a major leaguer. He’s currently just one away, though that was also the case a couple of days ago; Ichiro  went 0-for-4 on Sunday and was given a rare day off on Monday. Obviously, Ichiro’s pace is slowing down. The hope was…

  23. Kyle Drabek to undergo his second Tommy John surgery

    Jun 18, 2012, 5:56 PM EST

    Kyle Drabek

    Kyle Drabek‘s sprained UCL will require Tommy John surgery, Blue Jays manager John Farrell said Monday. Drabek had his first Tommy John surgery in high school before the Phillies made him the 18th overall pick in the 2006 draft. He was sent to Toronto in the Roy Halladay trade and he made his major league…

  24. Franklin Gutierrez makes season debut for Mariners

    Jun 15, 2012, 10:47 AM EST

    gutierrez wide getty

    Franklin Gutierrez hadn’t played since September of last season because of multiple health problems, the latest of which were a torn pectoral muscle and heel injury, but the former Gold Glove center fielder was finally back in the Mariners’ lineup last night. At this point it’s impossible to say what to expect from Gutierrez, as…

    Kansas City's Mendoza delivers a pitch against Milwaukee in their MLB baseball game in Kansas City

    Royals 2, Brewers 1: Luis Mendoza took a no-hitter into the seventh, but it was still close as prodigal Royal Zack Greinke was pretty sharp too, striking out eight and allowing one run over seven innings. Billy Butler‘s RBI single in the eighth was the difference. White Sox 6, Cardinals 1: Paul Konerko is batting…
