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

    Aug 20, 2014, 6:54 AM EDT

    Bases loaded walk

    A bases-loaded walk helped the Tigers win a game. A walkoff plunking gave the Cardinals the win. And the crew in Chicago couldn’t get a tarp on the field. Can anyone around here play this game anymore?

    Great news here for the second-place Cardinals. Injured catcher Yadier Molina told Jim Hayes of FOX Sports Midwest on Tuesday afternoon that he is hoping to be cleared to begin swinging a bat on Wednesday or Thursday.

    St. Louis infielder Mark Ellis is headed to the disabled list with a strained oblique muscle, which tends to sideline players for more than the minimum 15 days.

    “It looked really close to what we normally would see when he’s out there.”

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

    Aug 19, 2014, 6:42 AM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Washington Nationals

    The Nats win the close ones. They win the not-so-close ones. They win the tame ones. And last night, they won a wild one.

    Holliday is having the worst season of his career at age 34, posting career-lows in batting average (.260), slugging percentage (.407), and OPS (.769) while hitting just 12 homers in 119 games.

    An ump show in Detroit couldn’t stop the Mariners’ momentum.

    As first relayed by MLB.com’s Jenifer Langosch, the Cardinals have recalled right-hander Carlos Martinez from Triple-A Memphis, optioning lefty reliever Kevin Siegrist in a corresponding 25-man roster move.

    There are still quite a few hurdles to leap over, but Cardinals right-hander Michael Wacha looks to be progressing toward a mid-to-late September return.

    Shane Robinson over Oscar Taveras?

    Joe Posnanski ranks all 30 MLB ballparks. Spoiler alert: Wrigley Field is No. 1.

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

    Aug 15, 2014, 7:05 AM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    Striking out 14 guys and/or scoring seven runs: strongly correlated with winning games.

    When Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb on July 11, it was estimated that he would miss 8-12 weeks. He already appears to be ahead of schedule.

  14. Marlins tell Jarred Cosart: “Don’t swing the bat!”

    “Had we had him in a situation where we needed to score a run, we probably would have had to hit for him.”

  15. Yadier Molina gets cast removed after thumb surgery

    Aug 11, 2014, 9:10 AM EDT

    Yadier Molina AP

    Yadier Molina has already been ruled out until September following mid-July thumb surgery, but the Cardinals catcher has made enough progress to have his cast removed.

  16. John Lackey was not impressed by Caleb Joseph’s home run on Saturday

    Aug 10, 2014, 6:55 PM EDT

    John Lackey

    John Lackey called Caleb Joseph’s home run on Saturday — Joseph’s fifth consecutive game with a home run — a “Baltimore home run”, presumably slighting Joseph’s blast because Camden Yards is friendlier to hitters than to pitchers.

  17. Allen Craig could return from the disabled list in a week

    Aug 10, 2014, 10:21 AM EDT

    allen craig getty

    When outfielder Allen Craig jammed his left foot on the first base bag in his first game since being traded to the Red Sox, there was some speculation that he might be shut down for the remainder of 2014. Craig suffered a left Lisfranc fracture in late 2013 and hasn’t been right since, so calling it quits and aiming for a fresh start in 2015 would make sense. But it doesn’t sound like that’s the plan.

  18. Back injury sends Jason Motte to the disabled list again

    Aug 8, 2014, 2:14 PM EDT

    Jason Motte

    Motte has looked nothing like his former dominant self after missing all of last season, striking out just 16 batters in 22 innings while serving up seven homers on the way to a 4.91 ERA.

    If you had money on “Shane Greene and Chris Capuano would go back-to-back shutting down the Detroit Tigers in August, keeping the Yankees in the playoff picture,” the casino management would like to have a word with you.

  20. Blue Jays sign George Kottaras

    Neshek is 5-0 with a 0.78 ERA and 49/6 K/BB ratio in 46 innings and he’s two months from hitting the open market for the first sizable payday of his career.

  22. Must-click link: “The Unfair One” — tracking the demise of the Big Overhand Curve

    Maybe the best piece of baseball writing I’ve read all year.

    Screen Shot 2014-08-07 at 6.51.57 AM

    Joe Kelly gave his old mates fits. Well, maybe he gave them fits before too. Maybe they weren’t his mates. Maybe there were long-simmering disputes between him and the Cardinals about politics and religion and things. We can’t know!

  24. Oh joy, we get to revel in PED names being named again

    Aug 6, 2014, 2:56 PM EDT

    One would think that name-naming is the entire purpose of Major League Baseball’s PED enforcement.
