WATCH: Eric Byrnes goes all out imitating Chase Utley's slide

Former Major Leaguer Eric Byrnes is now an analyst for MLB Network, and regular viewers know him for his energetic and enthusiastic analysis. On Saturday night, he was at it again. Byrnes was tackling the subject of the Dodgers’ Chase Utley’s controversial slide that broke Ruben Tejada’s fibula. As usual, his demonstration on the studio’s...Read More

MLB Network doesn’t get much Game 162 chaos, but makes the most of the season’s final day

Game 162 was almost a bust. On Saturday afternoon, the Angels and Rangers were battling in Arlington. If Texas won the game, they would clinch the AL West, and the Angels would be eliminated from the playoff race if the Astros were able to beat the Diamondbacks on Saturday night (which they did). This would be a nightmare scenario for MLB Network. On Sunday, the network planned on being...

Who needs umps? Computer calls balls, strikes in minors

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. ''St-riike! ... And we're talking outside of outside corners.'' ''Ball!'' ''St-riiike! ... Inside of inside corners.''

CA independent teams to have computer call balls and strikes

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) No blaming or booing the umpire for a questionable called third strike this week in a Northern California independent league. The human element that many in baseball appreciate will be absent during an experiment for a pair of games. A computer will call balls and strikes as the home plate umpire handles all of his other regular duties. ''It's going to be...

A's Burns talks speed, path to MLB, Rickey and more on 'MLB Central'

The Oakland Athletics have seen great things out of Billy Burns so far this season. He's collected more than 80 base hits and been a catalyst atop the lineup - in addition to making ridiculous defensive plays on a regular basis.  With the A's in New York to face the Yankees this week, Burns paid a visit to MLB Network's 'MLB Central' to chat with Matt Vasgersian, Eric Byrnes and...

Stop Messing With My Mind: Boston Red Sox Crawling Towards .500

A while ago, David Ortiz hit an “oppo taco” (good Lord, why is an Eric Byrnes euphemism in my head?!? I have problems) to cap off a four-run bottom of the third inning for the Boston Red Sox. It was fifty shades of a Big Papi who has rapidly begun to resemble more of a Grand Papi this season. It was nice to see the Large Father contribute some fireworks that helped the team...

Introducing Josh Byrnes, leading candidate to be Dodgers’ GM

I was going to write a detailed post analyzing more than a dozen potential GM candidates, but that basically got shuttered by a report that Josh Byrnes was likely to land the GM spot for the Dodgers. Byrnes is the former GM of divisional opponents Diamondbacks and Padres, and prior to that had worked with the Indians and then as an assistant GM with the Rockies and Red Sox. His most...

D-backs found themselves a born leader in Chip Hale

PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks prized leadership above all other qualities in their search for new manager, and in Chip Hale, those traits have been evident for quite some time.  An incident in his senior year at the University of Arizona stands out. Hale was playing third base during a typically heated game against Arizona State in 1987, and the Sun Devils were building a rally. ASU...
