Announcing Phillies Generations: Share your story

In my eight years writing about the Phillies, one thing I’ve seen clearly is that Phillies fans are arguably the best baseball fans on the planet. In lean years we watch, complain, celebrate and congregate. And in great years, well, it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen. To this day, the most incredible live sports moment of my life was Game 2 of the 2008 National League Division...

The Angels are free to negotiate with any or all of them (and 100+ others) in the meantime, but it seems...

Victorino's mad dash left impression on Angels' wall - literally

Nobody can accuse Los Angeles Angels outfielder Shane Victorino of taking it easy on defense - not when his efforts to reign in line drives resulted in a partial dislodging of the Coliseum wall a week ago AND sprinting headfirst into the Angel Stadium outfield wall on Friday night.  While one might have an argument regarding Victorino's awareness of the walls he's careening...

Boxscore Breakdown #131: Total collapse – Athletics 11, Angels 5

The collapse of the Angels in August is now complete. That isn’t to say that the collapse is only now official, rather it means that August is done. The Angels are now free to continue collapsing into September and there is little reason to think that they won’t. In fact, their collapse has now reached a point where it has become contagious. Last night Shane Victorino tumbled...

David Ortiz pushed the Red Sox to sign Nelson Cruz

The Boston Red Sox season is all but lost as the club sits 13 games under .500 at 52-65, placing them dead last in the American League East. One of the teams biggest offseason moves was signing left fielder Hanley Ramirez to a monster four-year $88 million contract, a deal which has so far provided mixed results. As John Tomase of WEEI reported, Boston first baseman David Ortiz...

Cole Hamels and Johnny Cueto are off the table, and the Reds are apparently demanding way too much for the likes of Mike Leake. So, don't be surprised if the Boston brass start outlining the case for doing...

I was excited to see Alex Rodriguez homer on his 40th birthday last night (his sixth on his B-Day, which sets an MLB record), but I went to bed early. So I missed the Mark Teixeira shenanigans. After he was thrown out at home plate by Leonys Martin, who robbed him of a homer earlier in the game, Teix threw the mother of all hissy fits, tossing around a trash can in the dugout. Turns...

They’re unlikely to get to .500 this season. Even climbing out of the cellar of the AL East seems like an impossible feat. As the trade deadline approaches, the Red Sox have obvious areas...
