    One of my favorite parts of the draft each year is all the relatives of current and former big leaguers being picked out of high school and college. Conor Glassey of Baseball America has combed through thousands of potential draftees to put together a pretty extensive list of players with MLB bloodlines, along with some…

  10. Mets prospect Travis d’Arnaud cleared to begin rehab from broken bone in foot

    Jun 3, 2013, 6:37 PM EDT

    Travis d'Arnaud

    In a perfect world, Mets prospect catcher Travis d’Arnaud would be right alongside Zack Wheeler when the prized right-hander makes his major league debut later this month. That’s not going to happen, as d’Arnaud is still in recovery mode from a broken bone in his left foot, but there is a positive update to pass…

  18. Brett Lawrie’s sister has just as much fun on Twitter as he does

    May 27, 2013, 1:10 PM EDT

    Brett Lawrie

    Brett Lawrie has a bit of a checkered Twitter history. He’s a Twitter drama queen and goes after “haters” and all that stuff that you’d think a highly-paid professional athlete would and should be above. But he’s a kid, really, and kids do silly stuff on social media all the time. And it appears to…

  19. Cole Hamels is 1-8

    May 26, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    Cole Hamels

    Phillies starter Cole Hamels lost his eighth game this afternoon as he was vastly out-dueled by Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg in the Nats’ 6-1 victory.

    May 24, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Darren Oliver Getty

    Blue Jays left-hander Darren Oliver has been his usual effective self this season at age 42, posting a sub-3.25 ERA for the sixth straight season, but now he’s headed to the disabled list with a strained shoulder. To replace Oliver on the roster Toronto called up Double-A left-hander Sean Nolin, a 23-year-old who was their…

    Cleveland Indians v Boston Red Sox

    Indians 12, Red Sox 3: The Tribe’s bats had a nice night with Yan Gomes, Mark Reynolds and Michael Bourn all racking up multiple RBI.

    Star Trek into Darkness

    Phillies 3, Marlins 0: Cliff Lee shuts out the Marlins on three hits. Granted, it doesn’t take anyone as good as Lee to shut out the Marlins, but that’s nothing that Lee could help. He was dominant. Just like Benedict Cumberbatch in that scene when he killed all those [alien race redacted to avoid spoilers]…

    May 22, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Toronto Blue Jays

    On Monday Joe Maddon said he wasn’t pleased with Yunel Escobar making the “safe” sign as he crossed home plate following a home run in Monday’s loss. Last night he changed his mind on that. From Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times: “Some people point to the sky, he shows a safe sign. For…
