The reeling Red Sox, which appear headed for their first last place finish in the American League East since 1992, showed they have a pulse for the first time in September. After starting the month 1-7 and fresh off a sweep at the hands of the Toronto, the Red Sox sprouted to life on Tuesday when...

The least likely athlete to go from "zero to hero" was Josh Hamilton. From the time Hamilton became Tampa Bay's number one draft pick in 1999, and paid him a signing bonus of $3.99 million the big left-hand slugger took the money and ran looking for the nearest drug dealer. It was the beginning of...

I recently had a reader ask me about which player he should play over the course of a week. The two players are Nationals’ teammates Michael Morse and Bryce Harper. We ultimately decided that Harper is the way to go, as he is more likely to steal a base if he reaches. As this is the playoffs in a...
(PhatzRadio / USA Today) — A fiery Bobby Valentine summed up his first season as manager with the Boston Red Sox as “miserable.” Valentine, who joined Glenn Ordway and Michael Holley on a WEEI radio show in Boston (entire audio), was highly animated during his interview, to say the least. The...

It’s been an interesting 10 days for Jimmy Rollins. Rollins hosted the Ugandan little league team at Citizens Bank Park last week. Rollins had visited Uganda in the offseason, bringing them equipment to play with and donating $10,000 to help them make it to the Little League World Series this year...
So your bullpen just blew a five-run lead in the top of the 8th inning. No worries. Adam Jones leads off the bottom of the inning. Bam! One-run lead. Matt Wieters hits a line drive single to right field. Up comes Mark Reynolds, who has hit seven home runs in the past seven games, including one...

After splitting a four game series with Tampa Bay, I thought the Toronto Blue Jays were back on the winning track.  Boy! was I wrong. The Blue Jays kicked off their three game series against the Baltimore Orioles on a losing note as they were shut out 4-0. Thankfully, I had a cup of coffee beside...

The Yanks dominate game one with a 15 - 3 rout as Willie Randolph accounts for five of...

How to explain Chase Utley's 2012 season? After resting his sore knees over the entire offseason, Utley led most people to believe that he would be ready to go in 2012. Even general manager Ruben Amaro assumed everything was going well. In January, Amaro said, "He's doing good. He's feeling well."...

Here we sit on September 4. The baseball season is in its 6th and final month. And look who’s hanging around. This is one of the most (fill in superlative) years in baseball we’ve ever seen. Unusual is probably the word to use, or unexpected. Phillies are buried, Red Sox are a dumpster fire, Angels...
Just a disclaimer before I start this post. I'm working on kind of switching up the way I do things here on the blog. Before, a large majority of my posts were dedicated to game recaps and the like. I'm attempting to get away from that. I may still do it occasionally but only when I have writer's...
The Detroit Tigers are running out of rope. Just when all seems right with the world, after a 3-game sweep of the division leading White Sox and with the Indians coming to town, this team, yet again, has found a way to disappoint. Faster than it takes Alex Avila to grow a beard (or kill a rally),...
