Joe Girardi is searching for his own personal Scott Proctor, and let's hope it's not Dellin Betances

Back in the day, they called it "the Bridge to Mariano," that police lineup of bullpen pugs that was constantly being trotted out by Joe Torre to throw the 7th and 8th innings - a tortuous eternity that connected Yankee starters to their closer. We could be ahead by five runs, but you dreaded what was coming.For about five years, Torre tried everyone but Rudy Giuliani in that desperate...

Gut Reaction: Mets 3 Orioles 2 (5/5/15)

Bartolo Colon put the “sink” in Cinco de Mayo. And the Orioles were sunk. Colon pitched masterfully, leaving the game with two outs in the eighth, having struck out nine men and walked none. The offense came alive — for them, anyway — with a three-run uprising in the fourth to give the Mets just the type of win they need right now: neat, tidy and with only the barest hint...

Steve Pearce Is Playing Second Base

Understand that no one’s Plan A would be putting Steve Pearce into the lineup at second base. It would be nobody’s Plan B, either.

Addressing the protests that shut down Baltimore last week wasn’t an easy topic for Saturday Night Live to approach for this past weekend’s show.

Similar to a skit SNL created in...

Devon Travis has been everything the Blue Jays had hoped for through the first month of the season. The AL East through one month is about what we expected. Tight and competitive.

Manny Machado Could be Permanent Solution as Orioles’ Leadoff Hitter

In a stroke of pure Buck Showalter genius, Manny Machado batted out of the leadoff spot in the Baltimore Orioles’ lineup last night in their 4-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. Machado went 0-for-3, but did score a run after a walk. Showalter has made a habit of using players in his leadoff slot who do not possess the typical top-of-the-order speed like Nick Markakis for most of...
