Chen Out-Duels Beckett, Wins Series for Orioles

Pitchers who lack a decent fastball rarely survive in the MLB, but there’s such a thing as too much of a good thing. Josh Beckett learned that the hard way Wednesday, losing a 2-1 pitchers’ duel to Baltimore starter Wei-Yin Chen at Fenway Park despite a pinpoint-accurate fastball. With the loss, the Red Sox fell […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 8

May is just about up, but the story lines haven’t let up. Matt Kemp should be back on the DL again. The Red Sox have injuries galore but are suddenly good. The Angels and White Sox have picked up their game, while the Orioles and Rays are faltering. Where does that leave everyone? Let’s look […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 7

May’s almost over, and interleague play’s first series is over and done. The Orioles are still contending for the AL crown. The Indians are starting to build some room in their division.

Sox Rebound in Rubber Match after 4-1 Loss to O’s

Finally back at .500, the Boston Red Sox squandered their first opportunity at a winning record this season, falling 4-1 Tuesday night to the Baltimore Orioles.

Red Sox Bats Overcome Buchholz’s Struggles in Win Over Orioles

The Red Sox are no longer in the basement of the American League East. Well, at least they’re not in the basement alone.

If The Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 6

Interleague play is almost upon us, and that will mix up the races for sure. In fact, there’s a three-way tie for the top AL spot. The NL race isn’t too far away from that either. However, injuries are continuing to hit key names, which should shake things up even more. Where do things stand […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 5

After another week, there’s been some shifting. The Mets and Braves are opening a bit of space for themselves in the Wildcard race, while the Blue Jays are still trying to maintain their final spot.

Red Sox Lose in 17 Innings to Orioles

The Red Sox attempted to avoid being swept by the Baltimore Orioles as they sent Clay Buchholz on the mound on Sunday. Unfortunately the game turned into a ridiculous 17-inning affair ending in a brutally painful 9-6 Sox loss. Darnell McDonald earned the loss after the Sox depleted their available bullpen options and were forced to […]

Aaron Cook Injured, Battered by Orioles in Red Sox Loss

Aaron Cook was hoping for a better first start in Boston. A much anticipated debut for the Red Sox on Saturday was shattered early, as a second inning collision with Chris Davis left a large gash in his leg. He amazingly stayed in the game, but probably would have been better off hitting the showers, […]

Video: Aaron Cook Spiked During Red Sox-Orioles Game

Red Sox starter Aaron Cook wasn’t very good in his first start with the team. He went 2.2 innings, allowing seven runs (six earned) on eight hits. But, most of the damage came after one ugly incident. In the second inning, Jarrod Saltalamacchia was charged with a passed ball. He then tried to throw it […]

Red Sox Fall to Orioles in 13 Innings

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 4

A month into the season, and many teams are holding steady. But there’s still some changes going on. Some lower ranked teams are making some runs to get back into things, while others continue to sputter and be streaky. The DL continues to hoard some big names, which always mixes things up, so let’s look […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 3

Three weeks into the season, and there’s starting to be some real separation in the NL divisions, but the AL is still largely close.

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 2

Another week into the season and the injury bug is starting to bite into teams. The Yankees are without Brett Gardner and the Cardinals are without Lance Berkman, among others.

Manny Ramirez’s Return: Orioles or A’s… Why Bother?

Do you ever get the feeling like there’s no one on earth who loves you? That feeling that you’re completely alone in the world, completely abandoned by people who once cared so much for you? I bet that Oakland Athletics and Baltimore Orioles fans feel that way all the time. These two franchises had so much to look forward […]
