Adam Dunn Robbed Of Home Run After Ball Hits Top Of Wall Twice (Video)

Chicago White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn has hit 454 home runs over the course of his 14-year career, and has probably hit the ball to the warning track many times, as well. The power-hitting lefty has never had this happen to him before, though. Dunn drove the ball to deep left field on Saturday at Minute Maid Park, and Houston Astros outfielder L.J. Hoes leaped at the wall...

Keuchel goes the distance as Astros blank Rangers

They’ll call him King Keuchel, master of the ground ball and purveyor of the double play. Or they’ll simply say he’s a budding talent who qualifies as the best pitcher the Astros have at the moment, with no offense to Jarred Cosart’s 95-mph fastball, or Scott Feldman’s track record. Astros fans can tuck Tuesday’s 8-0 win over the Rangers under their pillow and keep...

The Worst MLB Teams in the Past 10 Years

In sports, we often celebrate the best of the best while trying to ignore the pathetic teams. These teams never get much mention, which is a mistake. By ignoring these horrendous teams, we lose out on the opportunity to marvel at the hilarity of how bad they really are. They can make us feel better about our favorite more mediocre franchises, especially if the playoffs are out of...

The Astros were a hit Friday night at Minute Maid Park. They put up a run-scoring double a home run and a triple to center field before L.J.

Rangers roll past Astros

While my life has been rolling along, so has the Rangers’ winning streak.  I was delighted to check scores during my busy weekend and see my boys swept their in-state rivals, the Astros.  Oh, and they picked up another outfielder too.

Boston Red Sox start the road trip off with a bang. Stephen Drew's walkoff propels them to a series win.

  Early in the week I previewed the Red Sox series with the Astros where they embarked on a ten game road trip.
