  • 'Ridiculous' transfer rule a clear drop by MLB

    It used to be that the "transfer rule" applied to collegiate athletes being forced to sit out for one year by the NCAA when they left one school for another. However, the "transfer rule" has become the talk of baseball in the early stages of the season....
  • Angels' Hamilton out; Pujols leads win over Mariners

  • A's overcome shabby start to earn win

    OAKLAND, Calif. It was a weird, wet and wobbly first homestand for the A's, and early on Sunday, it looked as if it would wrap up pretty shabbily. Sonny Gray had command issues and was over 50 pitches before he got an out in the third inning. First...
  • Mariners top Angelson Hart's home runs

    SEATTLE It should have been a full-on celebration. With a sold-out crowd of 45, 661 jammed into Safeco Field on a less-than-frigid Tuesday night, the Mariners made their home opener an enjoyable victory for fans, rolling to a 5-3 triumph, thanks to a pair...
