  • Stat Line Of The Night – 8/22/11 – Cliff Lee

    Stat Line Of The Night – 8/22/11 – Cliff Lee

    Cliff Lee is quietly putting together a season better than the one he had in 2008 when he won the Cy Young Award. The only reason it’s relatively quiet is because he’s pitching on a staff full of Cy Young candidates, who are arguably having better seasons than Lee. Yes, the Philadelphia Phillies’ staff is […]

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

    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 […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night – 8/17/11 – David Price

    Stat Line Of The Night – 8/17/11 – David Price

    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 […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 8/16/11 – Justin Verlander

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 8/16/11 – Justin Verlander

    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 […]

  • The Brewers Turned A Triple Play Last Night (Video)

    The Brewers Turned A Triple Play Last Night (Video)

    Things have certainly been going the Milwaukee Brewers’ way as of late.  If their four-game winning streak or their 17 wins in their last 19 games didn’t already make that obvious, their triple play during last night’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers did. With James Looney at the plate, and runners on first and […]

  • The 13 Single-Season ‘Hit By Pitch’ Leaders

    The 13 Single-Season ‘Hit By Pitch’ Leaders

    Has it seemed to you that MLB batters are getting hit by pitches a lot more often these days? Well, there’s good news: you’re not crazy. I did a little digging and discovered that Major League Baseball is currently experiencing a true beanball renaissance. In the 1890s, the average players HBP per game was .419. […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Did The Jays Steal These Signs Too?

    Picture Of The Day: Did The Jays Steal These Signs Too?

    Amidst the ludicrous claims made by the Chicago White Sox bullpen that the Blue Jays batters may be using a white-shirted man in the stands to steal pitching signs, the Toronto fans took to the Rogers Center last night in order to flash a few more signs at the Jays batters during their game against […]

  • Infield Party At Fenway! (Video)

    Infield Party At Fenway! (Video)

    The wall along third base at Fenway Park had everything you needed to start a party on Friday.  There was ice.  There was beer.  The only thing that was missing were the people.  Unfortunately, those people were on the other side of the wall, unwilling to take advantage of the beer vendor’s spillage and risk […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 8/1/11 — Asdrubal Cabrera

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 8/1/11 — Asdrubal Cabrera

    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 […]

  • Is Bunting To Break Up A No-Hitter Bush League?  (Video)

    Is Bunting To Break Up A No-Hitter Bush League? (Video)

    During yesterday afternoon’s game between the Los Angeles Angels and the Detroit Tigers, Justin Verlander took to the mound in the eighth inning in search of his second no-hitter of the season with his Tigers leading 3-0.  Shortstop Eric Aybar was the first batter for the Angels that inning and he was also looking to […]

  • Woman Barrels Over Man For A Foul Ball (Video)

    Woman Barrels Over Man For A Foul Ball (Video)

    America’s crazy obsession for meaningless foul balls at Major League Baseball games continues! The latest development in this ongoing saga took place a few days ago during a game between the Texas Rangers and the Minnesota Twins, as a woman barreled over her male counterpart while the two of them battled for a foul ball […]

  • This Day In Sports History (July 28th) – Dennis Martinez

    This Day In Sports History (July 28th) – Dennis Martinez

    It was on this day in 1991 that Dennis Martinez of the Montreal Expos threw the 13th perfect game in Major League history.  Martinez accomplished the feat on the road against the Los Angeles Dodgers, as the Expos won the game 2-0. Dennis Martinez became the first Latin American pitcher to ever throw a perfect […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/27/11 — Ervin Santana

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/27/11 — Ervin Santana

    When the Minnesota Twins’ Francisco Liriano and the Detroit Tigers’ Justin Verlander recorded no-hitters four days apart in early May, it appeared as though we were headed for a season full of no-hit games.  However, heading into yesterday’s action we hadn’t seen a single pitcher accomplish that feat since Verlander no-hit the Jays on May […]
