There’s no player in baseball—and maybe all of sports—quite like Zack Greinke. The man is a machine: efficient on the field, serious and direct off it, and constantly experimenting. He’s lost around five miles per hour off his fastball over the years, but Greinke on a night when he’s going well is still a marvel,…
What is hell? No one can truly say, but it may involve watching the 2017 Tampa Bay Rays, whose pitchers waste more time than any other team’s. How bad is it? Matt Andriese, Chris Archer, and Alex Cobb, who rank as the three slowest starters in the majors, are averaging 28.2, 26.7, and 26.6 seconds, respectively,…
After four and a half years of not speaking to my mom I’ve learned to stay away from social media on Mother’s Day.
Last night the Atlanta Braves finally fired back at the Toronto Blue Jays for carrying out an immensely pathetic beef during the four-game series.
Through 37 games, Angels slugger Mike Trout is off to the best start of his career. He’s hitting .341/.451/.742 with 13 home runs, eight stolen bases, and 24 walks.
Last night, Blue Jays center fielder Kevin Pillar appeared to have called Braves reliever Jason Motte a “fag” or “faggot” after Motte quick-pitched him to strike him out swinging and end the seventh inning.
Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman left last night’s game against the Blue Jays in the fifth inning after taking a fastball to the left wrist. It was one of those moments that immediately makes you worry about broken bones and weeks on the disabled list.
The White Sox almost won in extra innings last night against the Angels in Anaheim, but ultimately let the Angels win on a walk-off single.
In six innings last night, Mets starter Zack Wheeler gave up one run and struck out six. That isn’t saying much in the context of a normal season, but it was a welcome sight for a Mets team that has gotten very little from its starting rotation this season. Wheeler left the game with the score tied 1-1, and then of…
On Sunday afternoon the Yankees announced Aroldis Chapman would be sent to the disabled list with an inflamed rotator cuff. He’s expected to be out for a month.
The Giants narrowly avoided a sweep by the Mets yesterday afternoon, which would have been the second consecutive series sweep for them. A win is a win (and this one doesn’t change the Giants’ standing as the worst team in baseball by record), but the victory was notable for one astonishing fact:
The Mets held a press conference for Matt Harvey this afternoon, during which Harvey looked humiliated while apologizing to the organization and the fans he let down by not showing up to Citi Field on Saturday night.
Aaron Hernandez’s conviction for murdering Odin Lloyd was vacated today by Judge E. Susan Garsh, who oversaw the 2015 trial. Hernandez is now considered an innocent man in the eyes of the law.
The Mets kicked off their Sunday afternoon by announcing that Matt Harvey would not make his scheduled start against the Marlins, and would be suspended for three days. Then they had to explain that the suspension had nothing to do with a big ol’ dildo.
Aaron Hernandez told an inmate shortly before his suicide that “if an inmate has an open appeal on his case and dies in prison, he is acquitted of his charge and will be deemed not guilty,” according to a document from the Massachusetts Department of Corrections that was filed in Bristol Superior Court by prospectors.
No one seems to understand why the drama between the Red Sox and Orioles is still ongoing, but it’s well past time for the Sox to cut the shit.
You’ve probably heard that Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman is the best hitter in baseball right now. You’ve likely then heard the two immediate follow-ups: Wow, he stands out on a team with Bryce Harper and Daniel Murphy; wow, he was really bad last year!
Oakland A’s pitcher Kendall Graveman was a tough-luck loser last night, falling to the Los Angeles Angels 2-1 despite surrendering just two runs in six innings. At least he got a cool highlight out of the night, thanks to an unassisted double play in the bottom of the fifth.
Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward has mashed three home runs in his last four games, a feat that would have been unthinkable during his miserable 2016 season.
