Who was in the wrong? Zack Greinke vs. Carlos Quentin

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke threw a baseball and it hit San Diego Padres slugger Carlos Quentin on the left arm. Quentin, after a moment's hesitation, decided to charge Greinke, inciting a bench-clearing brawl.  The incident ultimately resulted in Greinke breaking his collarbone, four players getting ejected, and an actual "meet you in the […]

Rafael Furcal’s elbow is not all better

St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Rafael Furcal was supposed to make his 2013 Spring Training debut in the field over the weekend. Now he may not be playing at all in 2013.  The veteran 35-year-old shortstop suffered a set back in the rehab of his partially torn ligament in his throwing arm and the news is […]

Justin Verlander working on his home run swing

Justin Verlander is a no-hit pitcher. But he's also a no-hit hitter. It's like he's pitching to himself almost. In his career during interleague play, Verlander is 0-for-20 with 13 strikeouts and his seven other outs weren't exactly results of bad luck. But Verlander is trying to change that. It's no secret around Detroit that […]

Chan Ho Park rapping about crap

Chan Ho Park made a pretty nice Major League career out of pitching. In fact, at the age of 38, he's still pitching over in South Korea, last I checked. He provided 17 years of service for seven different big league teams and, on October 1, 2010, he became the winningest Asian pitcher in MLB […]

Quintin Berry’s catch, Miguel Cabrera’s home run saves Tigers

Quintin Berry is certainly making the most of his cup of coffee with the Detroit Tigers while Austin Jackson nurses a strained abdomen. In fact, Berry has played so well that it’s likely the Tigers make an unexpected move to keep Berry around after Jackson returns. On Sunday against the Twins, Berry became

Roy Halladay exits start after 2 innings with injury

Roy Halladay hasn’t been himself in the month of May (5.40 ERA before Sunday’s start) and it might have something to do with the sore shoulder that forced the Phillies to pinch hit for their ace in the bottom half of the second inning of Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals.  Halladay had given […]

Todd Frazier literally throws his bat at the ball, homers

A common baseball adage is throw [the barrel of] your bat at the ball. Cincinnati Reds third baseman Todd Frazier took that to heart on Sunday while facing the soft-tossing, 49-year-old lefty Jamie Moyer. With the bases empty and one out in the bottom of the fourth inning, Frazier waited back on a 72 mph […]

Check out this amazing catch by Lower Columbia College’s Derrick Salberg

I’m not one to get caught up in all the internet hyperbole that’s thrown around, calling everything that’s great ‘THE BEST EVAHHH!!!’ without a second of thought, but this grab by Lower Columbia College’s Derrick Salberg has to be up there as one of the best catches ever made — certainly one of the best I’ve ever […]

Adam Jones, O’s on verge of long-term extension

Rosenthal believes that they will be “well north” of the free agent deal Miguel Tejada (6 years, $72 million) and Nick Markakis (6 years, $66.1 million) signed.  Jones is earning $6.15 million this year and has another year of arbitration available before becoming a free agent in 2013. Jones is in the midst of a […]
