DraftKings – I’m No Boxer But I’m About to Wei-Yin

I never got into boxing. I think the last time it was huge was during the Rocky heydays and maybe during Mike Tyson's reign of terror on the industry before he was a mere caricature in that one funny movie. Though I do appreciate he brought me Mike Tyson's Punch Out. Now THAT'S a classic. Loved beating King Hippo. Screw Mr. Sandman, though. Don't think I ever...

Lifeless Red Sox Fall Again To Orioles, 6-0

(AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)Well, maybe Wei-Yin Chen is immortal after all. The Orioles lefty dominated the punch-less Red Sox—allowng just four hits over seven shutout innings in a 6-0 game. Of course, this is the 2014 Carmine Hose we're talking about—who are poised to be the first team in MLB history to go from worst to first to worst in a three-year span. Last night was...

Red Sox Return Home To Fenway Park In Rough Shape After Ugly Road Trip

The Boston Red Sox left Fenway Park on June 1 riding high. A lot has changed. The Red Sox, who won seven straight before embarking on a nine-game road trip, capped their excursion away from Fenway with a 6-0 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday at Camden Yards. Boston went 2-7 on the trip and looked eerily similar to the struggling club that dropped 10 in a row before its Memorial...

Zach Britton, Buck Showalter and Wei-Yin Chen on Orioles' 2-1 victory at Kansas City

The Orioles ended their four-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory Thursday night in Kansas City. Perhaps more important, they held on to a one-run lead in the ninth (really, from the fifth to the ninth) for the win. And when the need for a save arose in the ninth inning, left-hander Zach Britton got the call to try and close out a game for the first time in his professional career...

Orioles edge Astros, 4-3, for 4th straight victory

It didn't happen immediately, but Orioles left-hander Wei-Yin Chen slowly is emerging as the pitcher who excelled for the club in its surprising 2012 playoff run. That could be a huge development for a team that sits alone, at least for now, atop the American League East standings.

After Chen's strong start, Orioles score in bottom of 10th to beat Royals, 3-2

The Orioles don’t necessarily need an explosive offensive effort every night if they can get the kind of solid starting pitching performance they received Saturday evening from Wei-Yin Chen. They just need to make sure they get some offense – especially at home. And especially now that they are going to have to get through the next few weeks without their most powerful hitter...

Red Sox’s Offense Showing Encouraging Signs Despite Boston’s Slow Start

BOSTON — If the Red Sox’s offense stared itself in the mirror right now, it wouldn’t see the same unit that produced an MLB-best 853 runs (5.3 runs per game) last season. But it also shouldn’t be mortified by its appearance. The 9-11 Red Sox have endured struggles this season, and their inability to produce with runners on base has been a big reason why.

Wei-Yin Chen starts strong, offense wakes up in Orioles' 7-1 win over Rays

In the eyes of Orioles manager Buck Showalter, left-hander Wei-Yin Chen battled some tough luck in his first two starts of the season. He pitched well enough to win, his skipper said, but was victimized by seeing-eye hits that led to some early exits. After allowing nearly two hits an inning in those starts, Chen set the tone early against the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night at Camden...
