Rougned Odor spent the Rangers’ game against the Mariners tonight messing with Dae-ho Lee, hitting the ball over the field, and futzing around on the basepath. He capped it off with a walk-off home run, and because he’s Rougned odor, he capped that off with a stare down and a little tiny baby bat flip (more of a bat…
The Baltimore Orioles are in the hunt for the AL East title and hold a 1.5 game lead over Detroit for the second wild card spot precisely because their offense does one thing better than any other baseball club: They mash so many dingers.
Oh yeah baby, oh yeah! Someone give me a high-five!
On Sunday, the Little League team from Maine-Endwell, N.Y. beat the team from Seoul, South Korea, 2-1, in the championship game. More importantly, South Korea’s catcher Jungseo Cho set a new gold standard in commitment to pitch framing.
Jaime García gave up two two-out home runs and the Cardinals lost 7-4 to the A’s on Sunday to finish interleague play a dismal 8-12.
Maybe this is weird to say, but I don’t think any player in baseball is as visually captivating as Bryce Harper. The home runs and helmet-ditching sprints from home to second—all produced by that loopy, torquing swing of his—are an easy sell, but there’s also just something about the way Harper looks.
Seung-hwan Oh let two inherited runners score in the eighth inning, as the A’s came back to beat the Cardinals 3-2 last night.
Bartolo Colon nearly doubled his season hit total last night. When you consider that such a feat only required going from three hits to five, this is not as impressive as it sounds. When you consider that it involved Bartolo Colon getting not just one hit, but two, it might actually be more impressive than it sounds.
Chris Sale was peak Chris Sale last night.
Alejandro De Aza homered and drove in five runs Thursday as the Mets beat the Cardinals 10-6.
Dozens of Major League Baseball players have been suspended for testing positive for performance enhancing drugs, but relatively few stars have been caught. Could it be that there should be one more star on this list, but he instead paid his less heralded teammate millions of dollars to take the fall for him?
The Braves are 34 games under .500. Pretty much their only good player is Freddie Freeman. This is more or less by design—Atlanta dumped a bunch of talent so they would be at their worst right before moving into their boondoggle of a new suburban stadium, but they kept Freeman around as a lifeline to their remaining…
Matt Moore, who was traded to the Giants earlier this month from the Tampa Bay Rays, took a no-hit bid as close as he possibly could before it got dashed at the last second. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Corey Seager sent a flare into right field on Moore’s 133rd pitch. It landed squarely between Gorkys…
As eventually doomed runs of Idiots On The Field go, these dudes’ miracle jaunt all the way across the outfield, through stadium security, and into the bleachers was pretty damn spectacular.
Nobody has ever robbed a home run at the Marlins’ stadium, until this evening, when Royals center fielder Jarrod Dyson got all the way up to snatch one away from Christian Yelich.
Are you seated? Are you prepared to hear the rawest, truest sabermetrics take of all time from Blue Jays scout Steve Springer?
In a baffling move, the Los Angeles Dodgers traded away Clayton Kershaw’s personal catcher, A.J. Ellis (as well as a pitching prospect and player to be named later), in exchange for Carlos Ruiz of the Philadelphia Phillies.
Hey, what are you looking at, man?
Strong-as-hell swimming champion Katie Ledecky is from Washington D.C., and the Nationals invited her to come throw the first pitch tonight before their game against the Orioles. She arrived, as well she should, decked out in all five of her recently-acquired Olympic medals. Thankfully, Bryce Harper was kind enough to…
Yu Darvish hit his first career dinger tonight, sending a Tim Adelman pitch over the center field wall in the fifth inning. At the time of the homer, he had more stroked dongs than hits allowed, although the Reds put one on him shortly after.
