Eric Chavez: A Diamond Off The Bench

With Alex Rodriguez on the DL, Eric Chavez has filled the void by outshining the former star in front of him. When a key position player player goes down with an injury, it usually sends managers scrambling to fill the void immediately, so they seek help from their bench, farm system, or possible trades. Replacing a high caliber player isn’t always the easiest task and the same...

Michael Kay won't have any of you blaming him for jinxing Hiroki Kuroda's no-hitter

Last night in New York, Yankees pitcher Hiroki Kuroda took a no-hitter into the 7th inning against the Rangers.  The no-hitter was broken up, but Kuroda pitched a complete game shutout in a 3-0 victory. So who's to blame for having Kuroda's chance at history being spoiled?   Why naturally, Yankees announcer Michael Kay. We've chronicled some of Kay&...

Yankees sign Lowe for bullpen

The Yankees signed Derek Lowe to a major league contract on Monday and said they planned to use the right-hander in the bullpen. Lowe, a 39-year-old sinkerballer, has spent time as a reliever, but mostly has pitched in the rotation for various teams, most recently the Indians.

MLB ready for next "can't miss" rookie?

You might be thinking to yourself that the name "Jurickson Profar" rings a bell. It should. Last month, during the lead up to the MLB trade deadline, the Texas Rangers were looking at a number of candidates to strengthen their team for another World Series push. But Texas held up from making any blockbuster deals because the player ever team wanted in return from the...

Is Josh Hamilton’s Plate Discipline Improving?

After brutal June and July performances, Josh Hamilton has performed well in the first few weeks of August, hitting .320/.382/.580 in 55 trips to the plate. According to both Hamilton and his coaches, the improvement is the direct result of his willingness to finally make adjustments in terms of which pitches to swing at. After months of hacking away at pitches well out of the...

Two Hamilton home runs aren’t enough

For the second night in a row, Rangers pitchers did their job while the offense floundered.  It’s so frustrating to watch this team.  I know they’re leading the AL West and have the second best record in the AL.  They still look good enough to make October, but if they keep playing like this, they won’t make it through October. Rangers fans were pretty stoked this afternoon...

Manic Monday for Dempster, Rangers

I missed the entire Detroit series (which the Rangers ended up winning) and returned to viewing tonight.  I would like to exchange this game for yesterday’s.  Or maybe Saturday’s.  Yeah, definitely Saturday’s.  I want to see Mike Olt’s walk-off single.  But no.  I didn’t get to see any of that.  Instead, I got bad Ryan Dempster and a mostly flat Rangers offense....
