  • Initial take on Josh Hamilton to the Angels (and an Orioles wrinkle?)

    Initial take on Josh Hamilton to the Angels (and an Orioles wrinkle?)
    The news broke this afternoon that the Los Angeles Angels have agreed to a five-year, $125 million deal, pending a physical, with talented but troubled slugger Josh Hamilton. As a baseball writer, my first reaction was this: Maybe commissioner Bud Selig...
  • Our Laguna: Rooting for the home team

    Our Laguna: Rooting for the home team
    I don't care what the calendar says, if teams are playing baseball in Arizona, spring has sprung. In fact it was more like summer last week when my sister-in-law, Patsy Hadlich, and I made our annual trip to the Cactus League games, with her son, Jeff,...
  • Chris Nelson hits two homers to lead Angels to 8-4 win over Yankees

    NEW YORK — Chris Nelson hit a solo home run to right-center field in the fourth inning and broke the game open with a grand slam to left field in the eighth Thursday, as the Angels avoided a four-game sweep at the hands of the New York Yankees...
  • Yankees have O's, rest of baseball asking: who are these guys?

    Yankees have O's, rest of baseball asking: who are these guys?
    The Orioles waste no time jumping into the thick of the American League East race, that’s for sure. After the three-game series with the Tampa Bay Rays that starts with today’s season opener, they’ll open a six game road trip against the...
  • 99 problems, Cubs-style

    99 problems, Cubs-style
    The pieces aren't in place yet for the Cubs, but the plan is and so is the braintrust. Whether Tom Ricketts, Theo Epstein and Dale Sveum will succeed remains a mystery, and the fact is there's more to be done. A lot more. So on the cusp of Wrigley...
  • Los Angelinos siguen atormentados por la maldición de Pujols y de Miami

    Los Angelinos siguen atormentados por la maldición de Pujols y de Miami
    Previo al arranque de la temporada de 2012 lancé una maldición a los Angelinos de Los Angeles —y en particular a Albert Pujols— que aún sigue atormentando a los serafines y al slugger dominicano. Entonces, un sábado 24 de diciembre de 2011...
  • Yankees defeat the Orioles 6-4 in the 10th, Johnson blows third straight save opportunity

    Yankees defeat the Orioles 6-4 in the 10th, Johnson blows third straight save opportunity
    Orioles closer Jim Johnson can be depended on to always be at his locker to answer questions anytime he becomes a focal point of a game following a blown save. Those times have been rare, until recently, as Johnson has blown three consecutive ninth-...
  • Pedro Strop's strong stretch comes to an end

    Pedro Strop's strong stretch comes to an end
    Orioles reliever Pedro Strop had allowed just one earned run in his last 13 appearances for a 0.79 ERA in his last 11 1/3 innings heading into Monday night. That’s a dramatic improvement over his early season struggles when he allowed seven earned...
  • Nate McLouth's walk-off homer against Yankees snaps Orioles' skid

    Nate McLouth's walk-off homer against Yankees snaps Orioles' skid
    You could pick a number of storylines from a sticky, summer-like Tuesday evening at Camden Yards and really not go wrong. There was the obvious, made-for-TV clip of Nate McLouth lifting a game-ending homer over the right-field wall in the bottom of...
  • Angels unlikely to make Jason Vargas a qualifying offer; to pursue pitching via trade

    Angels unlikely to make Jason Vargas a qualifying offer; to pursue pitching via trade
    The Angels have only one free agent, pitcher Jason Vargas, and they have until 2 p.m. Monday to decide whether to extend a one-year, $14.1-million qualifying offer to the left-hander who went 9-8 with a 4.02 earned-run average in 24 starts during an...
  • Orioles bash Yankees, 11-3, as rivals' role reversal continues

    Orioles bash Yankees, 11-3, as rivals' role reversal continues
    To suggest that there has been a reversal of fortune — that after an 11-3 bludgeoning of the New York Yankees on Saturday night at Camden Yards the Orioles and Bronx Bombers have swapped places — would be premature. The Yankees, after all,...
