Iwakuma dazzles M's to 5-2 victory over the Phillies

was a little worried writing about Hisashi Iwakuma today. I'd been planning to praise Jack Zduriencik for the signing and subsequent extension of Iwakuma for a few weeks, but hadn't found the right time to write about it.

Hisashi Iwakuma and an Unexpected Record

Somewhere along the line in their development, pitchers are instructed to try to control the running game. At younger ages, pitchers are more able to stop runners than catchers are, since the catchers aren’t very good and the runners aren’t very good.

Robinson Cano Brings Success To Seattle

SEATTLE, Wash. — As his first full season in Seattle winds down, no free agent player seems to have had as much of an impact as Robinson Cano on the Seattle Mariners.

After a 7-2 victory over...
