    Brandon McCarthy

    Pitcher safety is being talked about again after J.A. Happ was hit in the head by a line drive yesterday and Brandon McCarthy, who needed brain surgery after being struck by a line drive last season, posted some interesting thoughts on Twitter just now: Anybody taking the hard line stance today that pitchers should be…

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

    May 8, 2013, 6:50 AM EST

    New York Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey pitches against the Chicago White Sox during the fourth inning of their MLB Inter League baseball game at CitiField in New York

    Mets 1, White Sox 0: For as good a pitcher as Matt Harvey is, something is clearly wrong with him given that he did not get the win in this game. The object of the game is to win it, Matt. You clearly lack The Will to Win, as I’m sure Hawk Harrelson mentioned during…

    Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ departed the field on a stretcher after taking a Desmond Jennings line drive off the left side of his head in the second inning of his start Tuesday evening against the Rays. Happ appeared to be conversing with paramedics as they led him off in a cart, but his neck…

    May 7, 2013, 6:44 AM EST

    Andrelton Simmons

    Braves 7, Reds 4: The Braves weren’t going to be able to maintain any sort of momentum if the offense was all Justin Upton — who can’t do it alone — and Evan Gattis — who is, after all, a rookie. Last night they had help from Andrelton Simmons who hit two bombs and drove…

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

    May 6, 2013, 6:58 AM EST

    Allen Craig

    Cardinals 10, Brewers 1: The four-game sweep of the Brewers. Four RBI for Allen Craig. That’s six straight wins for the Cards, who are in their customary first place position in rather quiet fashion. The six first place teams right now: Boston, Detroit, Texas, Atlanta, St. Louis, San Francisco. Not many surprises there. I guess…

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

    May 4, 2013, 4:00 PM EST

    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…

  9. Blue Jays lose Josh Johnson to DL, call up Ricky Romero

    May 2, 2013, 2:20 PM EST

    Josh Johnson

    More bad news for the Blue Jays, who placed Josh Johnson on the disabled list with a triceps injury after initially holding out hope that he could start Friday. Instead they’ll call up Ricky Romero, who’d been banished to the minors after a miserable 2012 season that saw him go 1-13 with a 7.35 ERA…

  10. R.A. Dickey will make weekend start after MRI exam

    May 1, 2013, 4:36 PM EST

    Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher R.A. Dickey looks towards the New York Yankees dugout after Yankees Lyle Overbay hit a go ahead two-run home run during the seventh inning of their MLB American League baseball game at Yankee Stadium in New York

    R.A. Dickey has been bothered by neck and back problems for most of the season, but an MRI exam showed no structural damage and the Blue Jays announced that he’s expected to take his normal turn in the rotation Saturday against the Mariners. Toronto manager John Gibbons told John Lott of the National Post that…

  11. The Blue Jays had a players-only meeting to deal with the “bad vibes”

    Apr 29, 2013, 3:00 PM EST

    Blue Jays

    Bill Madden of the Daily News reports that the Blue Jays, off to an awful start, held a players-only, closed-door meeting yesterday DeRosa would later call a players-only meeting to reiterate a lot of what beleaguered Blue Jay manager John Gibbons said to the media the day before … “There’s just a bad vibe creeping in…

  12. R.A. Dickey says the Yankees were stalling yesterday

    Apr 29, 2013, 9:34 AM EST

    Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher R.A. Dickey looks towards the New York Yankees dugout after Yankees Lyle Overbay hit a go ahead two-run home run during the seventh inning of their MLB American League baseball game at Yankee Stadium in New York

    Yesterday R.A. Dickey gave up a homer to Lyle Overbay in the seventh inning. The next batter, Eduardo Nunez, came up to bat, but before he did he called time, had the trainer come out and help him get something out of his eye.  At least that’s what appeared to happen. Dickey says it was…

  13. Anibal Sanchez had himself a ballgame

    Apr 26, 2013, 9:48 PM EST

    Atlanta Braves v Detroit Tigers

    With all due respect to Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann, the author of a one-hit shutout against the Cincinnati Reds, Anibal Sanchez was tonight’s best pitcher. The right-hander, who signed a five-year, $80 million contract with the Tigers back in December, shut out the Braves with a franchise record 17 strikeouts over eight innings. The Braves…

  14. Yankees’ Ivan Nova, Francisco Cervelli exit with injuries

    Apr 26, 2013, 8:08 PM EST

    Ivan Nova

    At this rate, the Yankees might run out of players. Two more players are headed to the infirmary as pitcher Ivan Nova and catcher Francisco Cervelli both exited tonight’s game against the Blue Jays with injuries. Cervelli hurt his hand on a foul ball from Jays batter Rajai Davis in the first inning, per ESPN’s…

  15. Josh Johnson out with triceps tightness

    Apr 26, 2013, 9:34 AM EST

    Josh Johnson

    Guys, you’re not gonna believe this, but Josh Johnson is hurt: More bad news for #bluejays. Aaron Laffey will start tonight in place of Josh Johnson, who has right triceps tightness. — Jerry Crasnick (@jcrasnick) April 26, 2013   Nothing new for Johnson, of course. When he’s healthy he can be dominant, but since becoming…

    New York Mets' Valdespin celebrates after hitting grand-slam walk-off home run off Los Angeles Dodgers' Wall in MLB game in New York

    Mets 7, Dodgers 3: Jordany Valdespin with a walkoff grand slam. See, good things happen when he doesn’t try to bunt. Reds 1, Cubs 0: Mat Latos tossed seven shutout innings and Broxton and Chapman finished it off. Tough luck for Jeff Samardzija who struck out eight in six innings, but he’s gonna have to get used…

  17. Orioles lose extra-inning game for the first time in a year

    Apr 24, 2013, 5:21 PM EST

    Toronto Blue Jays v Baltimore Orioles

    Baltimore had won 17 straight extra-inning games dating back to April 11, 2012, but that streak came to an end this afternoon against Toronto. Orioles closer Jim Johnson, who’d been such a huge part of all their late- and extra-inning success, walked Maicer Izturis with the bases loaded to force in the go-ahead run in…

    Oakland Athletics v Boston Red Sox

    T.J. Quinn and Mike Fish of ESPN.com report that the spokeswoman for Robinson Cano‘s charitable foundation was named in the documents of Biogenesis, the now defunct Miami anti-aging clinic which has launched an investigation by Major League Baseball into players’ alleged use of performance enhancing drugs: The spokeswoman for Robinson Cano’s foundation is listed as having…

  20. Travis Hafner stole a base and tried to bunt for a hit

    Apr 22, 2013, 11:19 AM EST

    Travis Hafner

    Not only is Travis Hafner hitting .319 with a 1.120 OPS for the Yankees, he’s turned back to the clock to when he was a bunting, base-stealing machine. Well, actually he’s never been either of those things. Until yesterday, that is. Hafner stole second base without a throw, which was his first steal since 2010…

    Apr 22, 2013, 6:22 AM EST

    Detroit Tigers v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Angels 4, Tigers 3: Watched most of this one as I painted a couple of rooms in my house. Two highlights of the game for me were (1) overhearing my girlfriend use some really bad language the second or third time the Tigers left the bases loaded; and (2) Tigers color commentator Rod Allen, when describing…

  22. Jose Bautista is back in the lineup (again)

    Apr 19, 2013, 7:05 PM EST

    Toronto Blue Jays' Bautista hits a two-run home run against the Kansas City Royals in the sixth inning of their MLB American League baseball game in Kansas City, Missouri

    It’s been a tough start to the 2013 season for Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista. He missed a few games in the first week with an ankle sprain, and missed the entirety of his team’s recently-completed four-game series against the White Sox due to back spasms. Much to the delight of Jays fans, Bautista is…

  23. Travis d’Arnaud expected to miss eight weeks

    Apr 19, 2013, 4:10 PM EST

    Travis d'Arnaud

    The good news for Mets prospect Travis d’Arnaud is that he won’t need surgery to repair a non-displaced fracture in his left foot. The bad news is that manager Terry Collins told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York that the Triple-A catcher is expected to miss eight weeks. d’Arnaud was off to a solid start…

He was visited by a trainer after he struck out DeWayne Wise swinging for the second out in the sixth inning, but he stayed on to complete the frame. Esmil…
