WATCH: Aaron Hicks guns down runner at plate with 105.5 mph throw

One of the Yankees’ strengths this season was supposed to be their defense, but it’s been anything but that in the early going. That doesn’t mean there hasn’t been any bright spots, though, and one of the most impressive plays of the season came from the right arm of Aaron Hicks on Wednesday night. The Yankees were having a disaster of an inning in the fourth, with the previously...

Oakland A's and 1B Yonder Alonso agree on $2.65 million deal

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) First baseman Yonder Alonso and the Oakland Athletics have agreed on a $2.65 million, one-year contract, avoiding salary arbitration.

San Diego Padres: Alonso’s stalled season

Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso has long been somewhat of a punching bag for the fan Yonder Alonso base ever since he was acquired as part of the Mat Latos trade in 2011. Most of the scorn had to do with then-general manager giving up on top prospect Anthony Rizzo after only a handful of at-bats. Byrnes flipped Rizzo to the Chicago Cubs for right-hander Andrew Cashner, and it’s...

Cubs fan catches foul ball in beer, chugs it

During the Cubs’ 7-6, 11 inning win on Saturday, a fan at Wrigley Field caught a Yonder Alonso ninth inning foul ball in her cup of beer…and then proceeded to chug the beer. Hey, good on her for managing to make a beer that long after last call. She must have been double fisting to begin with, which makes her chugging make a lot more sense. The post Cubs fan catches foul ball...

San Diego Padres: position battle: first base

Yonder Alonso What a disaster this position’s been the last few years for the San Diego Padres. Since then-General Manager Jed Hoyer traded Adrian Gonzalez after the 2010 season, a collection of players ranging from dreadful (Brad Hawpe) to underdeveloped (Anthony Rizzo) to painfully average (Yonder Alonso) have manned first base in San Diego. This year looks like more of the...

What Jim Murray Never Wrote about Yonder Alonso

Yonder Alonso may not look or hit like a big-league first baseman, but that’s what the cigar-shaped kid from Havana is. Most nights, despite possessing the power of a hotel hair dryer, the man who runs with a Steinway on his back can be found in the heart of Bud Black’s lineup. And oh, what a piano! One year, he knocked 150 hits and scored 47 runs. That’s not a record, but...

Yonder Alonso’s 35 grade speed and my own shortcomings

I don’t look at the 40-Man Roster nearly enough. There are all sorts of weird, interesting, and completely useless pieces of information we can glean from each one of those guys we call Padres. Without giving the 40-Man Roster a thorough examination we would never know that 30% of the fellas call either California (Brad Boxberger, Robbie Erlin, Ian Kennedy, Tyson Ross, Dale Thayer...
