Adam Jones first since 2005 with five RBI, two steals in a game

It’s a very rare combination and one that was very profitable for those fortunate enough to own him in fantasy leagues; Adam Jones knocked in five runs and stole two bases Saturday in Baltimore’s 8-4 win over Oakland. Jones had a three-run homer off Jason Hammel in the first inning and then a two-run single in the fourth. Both times, he drove in Nick Markakis and Steve Pearce...

Washington scored theirs a bit later...

One Man’s Trash: Don’t Tell Mom I Pearced My Roster

When I saw what Steve Pearce had done over the past two weeks, questions arose. The main question being, "Who the hell is Steve Pearce?" He's the most added player on ESPN (+43%) and now has ten homers and 30 runs batted in with just 189 plate appearances. He's even thrown in four steals! He does everything! This feels very hot schmotatoish if you ask me, but who...

Fantasy Baseball Gold or Pyrite?

For all of you fantasy baseball fans, I'm sure I don't need to tell you what pyrite is.  Oh, you're not all geologists?  Well then, pyrite or iron pyrite, better known as "fool's gold," is a shiny, metallic mineral that bears a striking resemblance to the king of all metals, gold.  It's name comes from the Greek word for "in fire."  Right...

By Anthony Weber If you haven’t heard the name Steve Pearce, then for the last 9 seasons you haven’t been following the minor leagues and have not paid much interest to the late season call up player or last man on the bench.  Steve Pearce 31 years old, was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2005 and is now just securing himself a roster spot in the major leagues for the long...

Steve Pearce gets 4 hits as Orioles beat the Rangers, 5-2, to complete 4-game sweep

Life has been so charmed for the Orioles in the past few days that on Thursday, they chased one of baseball’s best pitchers with a weather report.

Orioles beat Cleveland Indians, 4-2, on Sunday to split four-game series

The Orioles aren’t going to make a big deal of winning one game in late May against a non-division opponent, but the club’s 4-2 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday afternoon had the feel of one they just didn’t want — or couldn’t afford — to lose. A defeat would have sunk the Orioles (25-23) back to .500 and marked their 10th loss in 14 games. It also would...
