Kyle Schwarber is a big dude who smacks big home runs, and tonight, he painted his masterpiece. Johnny Cueto sailed in a 90 MPH pitch and Schwarber got every bit of it, sending it 470 feet to right field. According to Statcast, it’s the longest cuadrangular of Schwarber’s career.

Johnny Cueto’s postseason form has oscillated between extremes.

A playoff series is always improved when one team is willing to talk some mess between games, so we thank the Royals for dusting off the old “The Blue Jays steal signs!” conspiracy theory.
The Royals have the second-best record in baseball, the fourth-best run differential, and lead their division by six-and-a-half games. Barring an incredible disaster, they’re going to the playoffs. But they still didn’t feel like the team was well-positioned, and on Sunday traded Brandon Finnegan, John Lamb, and Cody…

Uh oh, we got ourselves a scandal, or something. Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker and former St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa have never been especially fond of each other. Their relationship got even testier over the weekend when La Russa, who was in charge of making final selections for the National…

According to my calculations, the last pitcher to strike out 10 in his Major League debut was Daisuke Matsuzaka, last season. The last one to throw five perfect innings in his debut was the immortal Ken Cloude, in 1997 (do you know the team?). And the last Cincinnati Red to do either was ... well, no one. So here's…
