Live Report From Last Night’s WWE RAW Broadcast

Don’t know if I missed a match, but first match I saw was Rybaxel vs. Los Matadores. OK match, crowd chanted “Goldberg” to start but other than that, crowd wasn’t too into it. The crowd...

Seventh-inning rally lifts Clippers over Bulls 3-2

COLUMBUS - Thanks to a few lucky breaks in the bottom of the seventh inning, the Columbus Clippers nudged the Durham Bulls 3-2 Friday. Down 2-1, the Clippers filled the bases and came through with a duo of runs to catapult themselves into the lead. Durham catcher Jesus Flores never touched home plate on what could have been a force out for the tying run of the inning as shortstop...

Making Moves: Peter Moylan & Jesus Flores Sign Minor Deals, 3 More Dominicans Inked

The Dodgers have signed former Braves righty reliever Peter Moylan and former Nationals backstop Jesus Flores to minor-league deals with invitations to Spring Training. Flores has shown enough flashes that he could feasibly challenge for the backup job should Tim Federowicz falter, though he’s almost certainly going to spend the majority of the season in Albuquerque. Moylan figures...

Here's Davey Johnson with Bryce Harper at Davey's celebrity golf tournament

Looks like Davey borrowed Bam Bam's red contact lenses? Photo by @JustineWack on Twitter. Missing from the photo, of course, is Adam LaRoche, who Davey invited to the first annual Davey Johnson Celebrity Invitational golf tournament in Orlando this weekend seemingly with the sole purpose of forcing LaRoche and Mike Rizzo (also in attendance) to be in the same room to expedite...

Nats Massacre Cubs With Six Home Runs, 83rd Win

I’ve seen many bizarre nights at Nationals Park, but Tuesday night’s matchup between the Washington Nationals and the Chicago Cubs had to be among the weirdest. A ballpark that was full throughout the summer saw just 17,648 official attendees, but there were far fewer actually in the stands. Those that attended got quite the treat and a fun, weird game.

Suzuki traded from Athletics to Nationals so former Washington prospect can start in Oakland

    Sometimes its funny that some irony pops itself into the grand scheme of things. The Nationals were happy with their catching situation and depth when they traded Derrick Norris with three young pitchers to the Athletics in the Gio Gonzalez trade. The Nats had their catcher of the future with Wilson Ramos, but Ramos suffered a season ending knee injury. Back up catcher...

Video: Kurt Suzuki and Gio Gonzalez and a dunk tank

The above video, an Oakland A's ad featuring Gio Gonzalez heckling Kurt Suzuki ("Hey, I guess your lucky pooka shells ain't working today!"), and a dunk tank, is pretty great. (H/T @recordsANDradio for unearthing the video) And so, Jesus Flores may not be thrilled with Suzuki's arrival, but Gio and Kurt sure seem to be: Befriend Nats Enquirer on Facebook...
