    New York Yankees' Derek Lowe pitches to Texas Rangers during their MLB American League baseball game in New York

    Yankees 8, Rangers 2: I suppose the critical mass of people mocking the Yankees’ pickup of Derek Lowe was just too delicious for God or Loki or Fate or whatever controls our world to pass up, because He/it/whatever decided to play it funny with us and allow Mr. Lowe to toss four scoreless innings in…

    Aug 13, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Rajai Davis

    Blue Jays 10, Yankees 7: Holy frijole, did you see Rajai Davis’ catch, robbing Casey McGehee of a home run in the seventh? The guy is like 5”9″ and the wall is like ten feet and he went Spud Webb on that bad boy. Or Spiderman. Or something. Just wow. Otherwise, the Jays beat the tar out…

All of which is why it was so odd when the Blue…

  19. Toronto rookie Drew Hutchison needs Tommy John surgery

    Aug 7, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Drew Hutchison Getty

    Back in June the Blue Jays shut down Drew Hutchison for 4-6 weeks with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament, but framed it as good news because the 21-year-old rookie wouldn’t need elbow surgery. Unfortunately now those 4-6 weeks have come and gone, and the Blue Jays announced that Hutchison will undergo Tommy John surgery later…

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

    Aug 6, 2012, 5:42 AM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Tigers 10, Indians 8: I was at this game, and I gotta tell ya, until the 9th inning it was one of the more lame, butt-dragging tie games you’ll ever see. Omar Infante and Austin Jackson kept hitting, but apart from that the highlight until then was Joe West getting all ejecty for no good…

    Jul 31, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    Rangers celebrate

    One person’s thoughts on who made out best and worst at the trade deadline. Winners Texas Rangers: GM Jon Daniels wasn’t interested in parting with third baseman Mike Olt, much less shortstop Jurickson Profar, in order to counter the Angels’ Zack Greinke pickup, but he was able to keep his best prospects and land Ryan…
