    Craig is away today, so we’re going with a “Settling the Score” in lieu of the usual “And That Happened.” Don’t worry, we’ll return to our regularly scheduled programming on Monday. While plenty of attention was focused on the 2013 First-Year Player Draft last night, there were some baseball games going on. And Yasiel Puig stole…

  2. The Angels scored two runs on a strikeout yesterday

    I turned off last night’s Dodgers-Angels game around the time Vin Scully started talking about how Nick Punto was “scrappy” and “blue collar.” Even the legends fall victim to that jazz, it seems. Oh well. Before that happened, however, I saw a LOT of bad Dodgers defense. Like, “I wonder why Zack Greinke hasn’t gone…

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

    May 22, 2013, 6:47 AM EDT

    Wilin Rosario

    Rockies 5, Diamondbacks 4: One of four games to require ten frames last night. This from the AP gamer: Reliever Matt Reynolds tried to outthink his former teammate, guess what pitch Wilin Rosario would be looking for and throw the opposite. Only, Rosario knew Reynolds was trying to get inside his head, so … Long story short, Rosario spent the last…

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

    May 16, 2013, 6:31 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    Mariners 12, Yankees 2: This one was over almost before it started, with Phil Hughes getting knocked around for seven runs in the first inning, which he did not escape. Raul Ibanez hit two homers and drove in six off his old team. Which, I imagine, will cause some columnist who has been lauding Brian…

    Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Dodgers have officially activated right-hander Zack Greinke from the 15-day disabled list.

    The Dodgers have lost nine of eleven. If they were doing better, would Zack Greinke be coming back three weeks ahead of schedule?

    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly confirmed to reporters this evening that Zack Greinke will return from the 15-day disabled list to start at home on Wednesday night against the visiting Nationals. This according to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com. Greinke has been on the shelf since fracturing his left collarbone in a wrestling match with Padres outfielder…

  8. Report: Brewers offer rising star Jean Segura a long-term deal

    May 14, 2013, 5:59 PM EDT

    Jean Segura

    With their shortstop’s price tag likely increasing by the day, the Brewers have pitched Jean Segura and agent Joe Klein a long-term deal that could take the 23-year-old through his arbitration years and into free agency. Segura, named the NL’s Player of the Week on Monday, is batting .368/.412/.588 with six homers and 13 steals…

  9. Josh Beckett could be DL’d to make room for Zack Greinke

    May 14, 2013, 8:23 AM EDT

    Josh Beckett

    Josh Beckett‘s 2013 continued in its nightmarish fashion last night. He moved to 0-5 after losing to the Nats, giving up four runs — two earned — in three innings. His ERA went up to 5.19 and, as a capper, he “tweaked his groin,” which sounds way more fun than it actually is. Beckett said…

  10. Derek Lowe is no fan of Sabermetrics

    May 12, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    Derek Lowe

    Drew Davison of the Star-Telegram has an interesting article up in which Derek Lowe expounds on the increasing prevalence of statistical analysis in baseball. The Rangers signed Lowe to a Minor League contract in March and was eventually added to the bullpen. Lowe, who turns 40 years old on June 1, posted a 5.52 ERA…

    The high-priced Dodgers dropped their eighth straight game last night against the Marlins and currently sit in last place in the National League West with a disappointing 13-21 record, but there is some help on the way. Zack Greinke allowed eight runs (three earned) in 4 1/3 innings last night in a minor league rehab…

  12. Carlos Quentin has been terrible since Zack Greinke brawl

    May 10, 2013, 4:46 PM EDT

    Carlos Quentin,  Zack Greinke

    There were quite a few people calling for Carlos Quentin to receive a lengthy suspension after charging the mound and breaking Zack Greinke‘s collarbone. He ended up getting “only” eight games, but what’s happened may actually be worse for the Padres: Quentin has played, but terribly. Since the Greinke incident on April 21 he’s hit…

  13. Zack Greinke to make rehab start Friday, on track to rejoin Dodgers next week

    May 9, 2013, 9:35 PM EDT

    Carlos Quentin,  Zack Greinke

    When Zack Greinke fractured his collarbone during a benches-clearing brawl with Padres’ outfielder Carlos Quentin on April 11, he was originally expected to miss about eight weeks. However, he’s now on track to return well ahead of schedule. Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports that Greinke will make a minor league rehab start…

    Bubble wrap

    We’re smack dab in the middle of the first ten days-to-two week period of beautiful weather in Ohio. It’s low 70s, low humidity, sunshine and nice breezes. Everything is in bloom and the land is green and lush.  This will be mirrored by the ten days-to-two week period in the fall in which the air will…

  15. Zack Greinke is ahead of schedule

    May 4, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    zack greinke getty

    After Dodgers starter Zack Greinke suffered a broken collarbone after Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin charged the mound on April 11, estimates had Greinke missing eight weeks — a mid-June return if everything went according to plan. Greinke is ahead of schedule, though, according to MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick: He appeared to throw all of his pitches…

  16. Zack Greinke throws from 90 feet three weeks after breaking collarbone

    Apr 30, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Carlos Quentin,  Zack Greinke

    Cleared to begin throwing less than three weeks after breaking his left collarbone, Zack Greinke played catch from 90 feet yesterday and reported no problems. “It’s still a little achy here and there, but nothing worse than what you would expect, I think,” Greinke told Austin Laymance of MLB.com. “You try not to have setbacks…

  17. The Dodgers lose another starting pitcher

    Apr 27, 2013, 5:32 PM EDT

    dodgers logo

    During spring training, much was made of the Dodgers’ unusual surplus of starting pitchers. However, less than one month into the season, they are proving the old adage that you can never have enough. According to Pedro Moura of the Orange County Register, the Dodgers have placed Stephen Fife on the 15-day disabled list with…

  18. Shawn Tolleson out 3-5 months after back surgery

    Apr 25, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Shawn Tolleson

    Another day, another injured Dodgers pitcher. This time it’s right-hander Shawn Tolleson, who would have been in line for a bullpen gig with the pitching staff coming apart, but will instead be out for 3-5 months following back surgery. Tolleson was called up on April 12 to take Zack Greinke‘s roster spot, but appeared in…

    Padres Mets Baseball

    Carlos Quentin‘s eight-game suspension for charging the mound on Zack Greinke is over and the outfielder is expected to be in the Padres’ lineup tonight against the Brewers. San Diego went 3-5 in Quentin’s absence, with Jesus Guzman, Kyle Blanks, and Mark Kotsay sharing time in left field and the only three wins coming against…

  20. Padres CEO Tom Garfinkel: “I feel terrible and I am truly very sorry”

    Apr 23, 2013, 9:41 AM EDT

    ?????????????????????????????????????????

    Last week Padres CEO Tom Garfinkel ruffled more than a few feathers when a recording of him comparing Zack Greinke to “Rain Man” surfaced. It showed insensitivity to both those with social anxiety disorder, like Greinke. It also showed insensitivity to those with and those caring for people with autism, who have to deal with…

  21. Ted Lilly will join the Dodgers’ rotation next week

    Apr 19, 2013, 4:46 PM EDT

    Ted Lilly

    Chris Capuano aggravating his calf injury during the Zack Greinke–Carlos Quentin scuffle has opened the door for Ted Lilly to join the Dodgers’ rotation and his first start will be Wednesday against the Mets.

    Chris Capuano

    Zack Greinke‘s fractured collarbone wasn’t the only injury suffered during last week’s Dodgers-Padres dust-up.

Ken Gurnick of…

  23. Padres CEO blames Zack Greinke for his own broken collarbone, calls him “Rain Man”

    Apr 18, 2013, 8:55 AM EDT

    ?????????????????????????????????????????

    Stay classy, San Diego. Jeff Passan of Yahoo! reports that, the day after the Padres-Dodgers brawl, Padres President and CEO Tom Garfinkel told Padres season ticket holders that Zack Greinke was to blame for is own injury, saying that Greinke threw at Quentin on purpose and that he shouldn’t have put his shoulder down when…

  24. Zack Greinke thinks Carlos Quentin’s eight-game suspension for charging the mound was fair

    Apr 17, 2013, 9:42 PM EDT

    quentin, greinke getty

    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly told reporters in the aftermath of last Friday’s benches-clearing brawl that Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin should be suspended for as long as it takes Zack Greinke to fully recover from his fractured left collarbone. Greinke, though, says that would be “pretty crazy.” This is from Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times:…

    As first reported by Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times, the Dodgers have placed left-hander Chris Capuano on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left calf muscle. Tim Federowicz, a catcher, was called up from Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding 25-man roster move. Capuano suffered the calf strain Tuesday in his first start of the…
