Jarrod Saltalamacchia’s Two-Run Homer Comes Too Late for Red Sox in Loss to Rockies (Video)

The Red Sox’ bats were cooled in Denver on Tuesday night, with the team managing just three runs against one of worst pitching staffs in Major League Baseball. Jarrod Saltalamacchia accounted for two of those runs with one swing, as his home run cut Boston’s deficit to 8-3 in the top of the ninth. That’s as close as the Sox would get, however. Josh Outman and Manny Corpas combined...

So has the news of yesterday’s Hall of Fame vote sunk in yet? I guess it should come as no surprise really that no one got in as the voters need more time to decide who should get in. This is the first class that was directly affected by the presence of PEDs in professional sports. Half the ballot was filled with players who have been known or suspected of using the juice. The...

With a win in the opener at Wrigley Field, the Cincinnati Reds' magic number to clinch the NL Central is down to four. The Chicago Cubs have a far less glamorous magic number, one that will keep them from finishing with 100 losses.

Benches clear twice as Nationals rout Cubs

Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson doesn't believe in the notion that a team with a big lead should ease off the gas pedal. The Chicago Cubs beg to differ. Therein lies the reason for two near brawls Thursday night in the Nationals' 9-2 rout of the Cubs, which completed a four-game sweep. First, Cubs bench coach Jamie Quirk began yelling at Nationals third base...

Wind Clocked at 20; I-Cubs Clock a Trio

Waiting for the game to begin tonight I noticed that the pitchers would be throwing into a stiff breeze. A couple young scouts, I thought, sat down a couple rows in front of me to chart the game, one of them armed with a jugs gun. I sauntered down to ask them how the scoreboard speedometer compared to their readings since the last time I checked it was thought to generally register...
