    Despite owning the second-best record in the National League (53-36) heading into last night’s contest against the Oakland Athletics, the Pittsburgh Pirates still somehow ranked just 26th out of 30 MLB teams in runs scored.  So, what gives?  How can a team be so successful with such an inept offense? The Answer to that question […]

    Question:  How does an MLB player improve his bating average by 14 points (from .267 to .281) in just one game in July? Answer: By recording six hits in each of his six at bats on the evening. That is exactly what Alex Rios of the Chicago White Sox did during last night’s match-up against […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 7/7/2013 — Andy Murray

    There was simply no stopping Andy Murray on Sunday during the Wimbledon men’s final at the All England Club.  The world’s second-ranked player defeated top ranked Novak Djokovic in a rather impressive fashion, breaking the Serbian on seven of his 16 service games, while winning a total of 41% of Djokovic’s first service points, en […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 7/2/2013 — Homer Bailey

    On September 28 of last season, Homer Bailey completely shut down the Pittsburgh Pirates’ offense, en route to recording the first no-hitter of his career.  And last night, at the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, Ohio, Bailey proved to everyone that last year’s no-hitter was no fluke, as he tossed another one—this time against the […]

    The Miami Marlins are currently in the midst of a tumultuous season that has them sitting in last place in the entire MLB with a 30-51 record to go along with baseball’s worst offense.  However, it hasn’t all been bad for the Marlins in 2013, as they’ve given a few of their top pitching prospects […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 6/30/2013 — Justin Masterson

    At the halfway mark of the 2013 MLB season, you probably never would have imagined that Cleveland Indians pitcher Justin Masterson would be leading the entire league in complete-game shutouts, but he is thanks to yesterday’s lights-out performance against the Chicago White Sox. Masterson was masterful, allowing just six hits and one walk while striking […]

    After losing six in a row earlier this month, the Texas Rangers found themselves on a roll heading into yesterday’s game at Yankee Stadium, having won six of their last seven.  And their winning ways continued, thanks in large part to the pitching of Derek Holland. The Rangers’ lefty was at his best on Thursday, […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 6/26/2013 — A.J. Griffin

    The Oakland A’s headed into last night’s contest against the Cincinnati Reds having lost in each of A.J. Griffin‘s last five starts.  But thanks to a near-flawless performance from Griffin, that losing streak wouldn’t reach six straight. Giffin got off to a shaky start as he walked a couple of batters in the opening inning, […]

    The Milwaukee Brewers have been a major disappointment this season, as they found themselves in a tie for last place in the NL Central with a 31-43 record heading into last night game against the Chicago Cubs, who just so happened to be the other last-place team in the NL Central.  But after the final […]

    Pitchers have had a tough time quieting the Toronto Blue Jays’ bats throughout the course of their 11-game win streak, as they have averaged 6.36 runs per game over that stretch.  However, there was one man who was up to the challenge of shutting down the Jays’ hot bats, as Jeremy Hellickson of the Tampa […]

    The New York Mets are currently in the midst of another disappointing year, but they have still managed to produce a few bright spots during what has certainly been a season to forget thus far.  One of those bright spots is 24-year-old pitcher Matt Harvey, who improved his record to 7-1 while lowering his ERA […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 6/20/2013 — LeBron James

    He did it.  When LeBron James joined the Miami Heat during the summer of 2010, he promised to bring multiple championships to South Beach.  Last night, be brought them their second in as many years after leading the Heat to a 95-88 victory over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 7 of the NBA Finals.

    Is there anyone who can slow down the Baltimore Orioles’ Chris Davis?  At the moment, the answer to that question appears to be an emphatic “NO!” While everyone has been talking about how Miguel Cabrera seems to be destined to win his second consecutive AL Triple Crown, they might not want to count out Davis just […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 6/18/2013 — LeBron James

    LeBron James certainly didn’t have his best game of the playoffs last night, as a couple of crucial mistakes by the reigning NBA MVP down the stretch nearly handed the game and the NBA Championship to the San Antonio Spurs.  But when it was all said and done, the Miami Heat were able to earn […]

    Should the Boston Bruins go on to win the Stanley Cup, Gary Bettman and company could have a hard time deciding who to hand the Conn Smythe Trophy to as the playoff MVP.  The entire line of David Krejci, Nathan Horton and Milan Lucic could garner plenty of consideration, as they currently sit in first, […]
