The 2014 season could be easily labeled a "disappointment" by most fans of the Phillies. Even with that phrasing, the team hasn't necessarily had a disappointing loss the last couple of weeks. Last night's contest filled that void. After jumping out to an early 6-2 lead behind Cliff Lee, the...
Before we nominate Cashman for a Nobel Prize, consider that:1. The Tigers' Austin Jackson, a former Yankee farmhand, homered off Nuno.2. In that game, Joba Chamberlain recorded his 20th hold.3. Brendan McCarthy soon will probably go back to being Brendan McCarthy.

"It will be good for him, give him time to recover physically and mentally," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said.

PHOENIX -- Vidal Nuno could not have been much better his first Arizona start.
Nuno mixed five pitches, touched every gradation on the radar gun from 92 mph to 74 mph, and generally had the Miami Marlins at his disposal through seven shutout innings Tuesday at Chase Field.

Ozuna hit Reed's 2-2 pitch off the batter's eye far above the 407-foot sign in straightaway center. It was the fifth blown save in 25 tries for Reed ...

Vidal Nuno has appeared in 14 games and started 11 for the New York Yankees this season, and I think we’ve seen enough.
Nuno, 26, is 1-3 in those games with an abysmal 5.90 ERA. For pitchers who have thrown at least 60 innings, that’s the worst ERA in the American League.
He’s given up 12 home-runs in 61 innings, and opponents are hitting a staggering .293 against him.
