Addison Reed: Shutdown Numbers, Meltdown Stuff

In 2011, White Sox reliever Addison Reed faced 293 minor league hitters and struck out 111 while walking only 14 of them. It was a good year for Reed. He went from A-Ball, to High-A, to Double-A, to Triple-A in 3 months and 15 days. In 2012, Reed has faced 229 major league hitters and struck out 52 while walking 18. He has also allowed two more home runs than in his time in the minors...

Braves' Guillen not worried if he's on hotseat

The Marlins went into Friday 18 games under .500 but manager Ozzie Guillen didn't sound like a man worried about losing his job. "Can I say something about those (rumors)? Ha, ha, ha," Guillen said. "I laugh at that (expletive). I don't worry about what people say about that. I don't." Guillen said owner Jeffrey Loria has not spoken to him about...

Mendoza helps Royals beat Indians

Series Preview: Indians at Royals 9/21-23

Just like the series against the Twins, this upcoming series will be almost completely meaningless. While the Indians do have some player evaluations to do for next year, there is little to be learned in series against teams in the same situation as the Indians. Both the Twins and Royals are also evaluating young talent, making these games more like the AAA games that most of these...

Bring Back Lastings Milledge?

It is perhaps a sad commentary on the current state of the Mets and their almost non-existent production from the outfield, but I want to assure you that this post is NOT written tongue-in-cheek. I’m sure most Mets fans remember when Milledge was the highly-touted first-round Mets’ draft pick who made a big splash in the major leagues after an impressive climb through the minors...

Royals have White Sox's number

The Kansas City Royals will not win the American League Central this year. They won't even come close. However, Kansas City will have a major say on whether the Detroit Tigers or Chicago White Sox win the division. The Royals wrap up a three-game series Wednesday against the White Sox. They have seven games left with the Tigers, including the final three games of the season...
