    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
    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
    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
    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
    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
    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,...

    Orioles lose Travis Ishikawa to Yankees on waivers
    First baseman Travis Ishikawa, who was designated for assignment on June 29, was claimed by the New York Yankees on waivers Sunday afternoon. Ishikawa, 29, had two hits in 17 at-bats in his brief time with the Orioles. He had batted .316 with a .413 on-...
  • Twins' Aaron Hicks seems to have chosen the right course

    Had things gone the way Joe Hicks planned, he would have spent Monday flying home from Scotland after watching his son, who a decade ago was a child golfing prodigy, play in the British Open. Instead, Hicks left his job as a longshoreman and made the...
  • Angels' Jerry Dipoto is limited in attempt to improve team

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — For a general manager heading into what could be his walk-the-plank year, Jerry Dipoto appears calm and assured. His contract guarantees him nothing beyond next season, and the playoffs have gone on without the Angels...

    Why it's good business for the Angels to sign Mike Trout. Now.
    Never mind the crocuses in bloom or the red red robin bobbin' along. In our house, the first harbingers of spring are the Angels ticket offers filling our email boxes. That time has come and with it the most important question of the coming season:...
