Admit it, you stopped watching around the 6th inning. Sure, you kept your phone on just to check in from time to time, but surely there was something better on TV than watching the Angles mail another one in. Still questions remained. Would they get totally blown out? would there be any sort of comeback thwarted by a poorly timed double play?
Then all of sudden the phone starting...
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Josh Hamilton hit a two-run homer in the 11th inning, after the Angels rallied to tie it with four runs in the ninth, and Los Angeles beat the Boston Red Sox 9-7 on Saturday night to snap the AL East-leaders' five-game winning streak.
Brad Hawpe, who came in to play first base in the 10th, singled with one out in the 11th against Craig Breslow (2-2)....
The Angels completed their season sweep of the Tigers with a 3- 1 win that went 10 innings. With Trumbo and Bourjos on the bench, the Halos found just enough offense from Trout, Pujols, and even Brad Hawpe to win the game.
Weaver once again pitched in the mid 80s mph range, but it was enough as he bounced back from his rocky start against the Pirates to go 7 solid innings....

They are back! After not facing them since the 2007 World Series, the Colorado Rockies are returning to Fenway Park for a quick two-game series.
Looking back on that series, both teams were very different. Matt Holliday, Mike Lowell, Ubaldo Jimenez, Julio Lugo, Brad Hawpe, and Manny Ramirez are just a few. Jon Lester was a great storyline...

This past weekend, I decided to attend a couple AAA games for the Angels, mostly due to the convenience of only having to travel two hours to see them play in Sacramento, but also to get a better idea as to what they have to offer in terms of pitching and hitting. I can’t say I was terribly surprised by the results, but they were considerably less optimistic than even I could...
I don’t want to make it sound like I was worried that Brad Hawpe was going to make the team. Still, this front office is pretty unpredictable, and with rumors of Gaby Sanchez being shopped it was a thought that made my bowels weak. When he was signed I hated it. I figured he would take…
Brad Hawpe has been released.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have granted Brad Hawpe his unconditional release today, cutting camp down to 36 active players. Hawpe didn’t really have a shot at making the team, and it seems that he didn’t want to go to Triple-A. He wouldn’t have had much of an opportunity there, since the Triple-A outfield is starting to look crowded.

Miguel Gonzalez allowed four runs in two innings to a split squad of Pittsburgh Pirates in the Baltimore Orioles' 5-2 loss on Sunday.
Gonzalez, the Orioles' second-leading winner in 2012, started for the second time this spring and allowed a four-run second that was made worse by left fielder Nate McLouth's error.
With one out in the second, Brad Hawpe hit a ball to...

Jose Molina also had two of the Rays' 12 hits.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have added a lot of 1B/OF options for their major league squad in the last year. They traded for Travis Snider and Gaby Sanchez at the trade deadline. They acquired Clint Robinson in a minor trade with Kansas City. Starling Marte made the jump to the majors...

In what is a pretty clear trend the Pirates have brought on yet another Clint Hurdle guy, this time it’s Brad Hawpe. You’ll remember before the 2011 season they signed Garrett Atkins and invited him to Spring Training as well. This is basically the exact same signing, and will likely have the exact same result.

The Pittsburgh Pirates announced the signing of minor league free agent outfielder/1B Brad Hawpe and
minor league catcher Lucas May, with both players receiving an invitation to Major League spring training.
Per a team press release, the Pittsburgh Pirates have signed outfielder/first baseman Brad Hawpe, and have made the Lucas May signing official. Both players will be invited to Spring Training as non-roster invitees. In the same release the Pirates announced that Gerrit Cole and Jameson Taillon would both receive an invite to major league Spring Training.

The Rockies are finishing up their worst season ever.The Colorado Rockies have now lost as many games as they did in 1993 and 2005.With Friday night's loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Rockies now have 95 losses with five games left to play. What that means for the team is that they still have a chance to record their first-ever 100 loss season. Regardless, this team, even...
Rockies hitters have always had a hard time producing above-average seasons once context is applied. As a team, the club has never compiled a season with a 100 wRC+. Outsized park factors continuously knock their stats down a few pegs, as do the adjustments hitters have to make to differing altitudes when the team hits the road. Even with that as a backdrop though, Dante Bichette’s...
And SHAZAM! Now’s there’s parity in the MLB!
The MLB is a funny organization. One would think that in a sport producing most of the world’s largest guaranteed contracts, the production being paid for on the free agent market would guarantee on-field success. But that is not the case. Large payrolls have been large busts, such is life.
We know that a larger payroll leads to...
The Texas Rangers have released Brad Hawpe from Double-A Frisco at Hawpe's request, Danny Knobler of CBS Sports reports. Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram adds that Hawpe informed the team that he was not close to being able to help the big league club.
Hawpe signed a minor league deal with the Rangers back in January that would have paid him $1mm if he had made...
