    Stat Line Of The Night – 8/18/11 – Ricky Romero

    You may not have noticed, but Ricky Romero is making a very good case to be inserted into the Cy Young discussions. While Justin Verlander is the clear leader right now, Romero is quietly putting together an amazing August that should have him in serious contention if he keeps it up. Last night against the […]

    Despite being 10 games above .500, the Rays entered Wednesday’s game with the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park trailing the Red Sox and Yankees for the East title and Wild Card spot by 9.5 games. Most baseball pundits would say that the Rays are dead in the water, with no shot at either playoff […]

    Yesterday, it was Jim Thome gracing ‘The Stat Line Of The Night.’ Today, it’s one of his favorite pitchers, Justin Verlander (Thome has seven home runs off of Verlander in his career, the third most he’s hit off of any pitcher). Verlander bolstered his Cy Young resume last night against Thome’s squad by throwing 7.2 […]

    When Alex Rodriguez was approaching the 600th home run of his career, a feat he reached on August 4, 2010, everyone in America took notice.  Media outlets across the country followed the story and it seemed as though every American sports fan was following A-Rod’s pursuit of the historic milestone.  The Minnesota Twins’ Jim Thome […]

    With the Arizona Diamondbacks currently in the midst of a six-game winning streak, the San Francisco Giants have suddenly found themselves on the outside of the playoff picture looking in.  They needed a win in Florida yesterday afternoon if they wanted to remain only two games out of top spot in the NL West, and […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 8/11/11 — Robinson Cano

    Sometimes all you really need is one great at bat to earn yourself a spot on our “Stat Line of the Night.”  Robinson Cano proved just that last night, as his New York Yankees played host to the Los Angeles Angels. Cano did manage to record three hits during his four at bats last night, […]

    After going 5-for-11 during his first series in the Major Leagues, Canadian Brett Lawrie failed to record a hit in three at bats during his much anticipated home debut on Tuesday.  However, he would make up for that lack of production last night during his second game in front of the fans at the Rogers […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 8/9/11 — Cliff Lee

    It may be tough for Cliff Lee to replicate the incredible month he had in June (5-0, 0.21 ERA), but he appears to be on his way towards doing just that in August.  After pitching a complete-game shutout during his first start of the month, Lee was dominant once again last night when he took […]

    Heading into yesterday afternoon’s game against the Minnesota Twins, Chicago White Sox starter Jake Peavy hadn’t earned a victory since June 25th.  After going 0-4 in his last six starts since then, he was looking to put an end to his losing streak and begin a winning streak of his own, and he did just […]

    It was a disappointing month of July for Cliff Lee, which saw the Phillies pitcher go 1-2 with a 4.91 ERA in five starts.  As he entered the month of August, he was looking to put July’s struggles behind him and regain the form that saw him go 5-0 with a 0.21 ERA in his […]

    Casey McGehee entered yesterday afternoon’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals with only five home runs on the season.  He nearly doubled that total with a monstrous day at the plate, as he joined an elite list of players who have hit three home runs in a single game this season. The Brewers’ third baseman […]

    Last night’s game between the Chicago White Sox and the New York Yankees was called after seven innings of play, but those seven innings were all Mark Teixeira needed to do his damage.  The Yankees’ first baseman entered the game with 29 home runs on the season, good enough for second in the Majors.  He […]

    After starting the season on a tear, it has been “back to reality” for the Cleveland Indians over the course of the past couple of months, as they found themselves only one game above .500 heading into last night’s game against the Boston Red Sox.  However, they were still only 2.5 games out of top […]

    Two of the American League’s hottest pitchers squared off yesterday afternoon at Comerica Park, as Jered Weaver and the Los Angeles Angels visited Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers.  Both pitchers would remain hot, albeit, in very different ways.  Weaver was hot under the collar following the post-home run antics of Magglio Ordonez and Carlos […]

    Wins have become increasingly important for the Los Angeles Angels, as their strong play as of late has helped them climb to within two games of the Texas Rangers for first place in the AL West.  With the Rangers earning a win in Minnesota, the Angels needed to do the same in Detroit if they […]
