Managers win measure of credit for World Series showdown (Reuters)

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 15:15:23 PDT

A lot of the credit for being a miracle maker in the Cubs' climb to a long-awaited World Series has been heaped on team architect Theo Epstein, but Chicago's team president praised manager Joe Maddon. "Unbelievable job by Joe ever since he got here.

By Larry Fine Oct 23 (Reuters) - A lot of the credit for being a miracle maker in the Cubs' climb to a long-awaited World Series has been heaped on team architect Theo Epstein, but Chicago's team president praised manager Joe Maddon. "Unbelievable job by Joe ever since he got here.

Game Over: The 2016 Boston Red Sox (Big League Stew)

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 13:46:25 PDT

Sorry, Boston Red Sox, your World Series trophy is in another castle, one that’s furnished with David Ortiz’s retirement gifts.

Joe Blanton tried to make history repeat itself, but it didn't work (Big League Stew)

Sat, 15 Oct 2016 23:14:57 PDT

Joe Blanton took his spot against a net-covered wall in the bowels of Wrigley Field that’s normally used for visiting players hitting off a tee. The pitcher’s eyes went wide, adjusted themselves and then Blanton went about owning the awkward situation. This was the sober side of the Saturday night party in Wrigleyville that started about a half-hour earlier when Miguel Montero took the third slider he was offered by Blanton and blasted it into the right-field bleachers for a grand slam that broke the tie game wide open.

Game Over: The 2016 Texas Rangers (Big League Stew)

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 16:36:28 PDT

Sorry, Texas Rangers, your World Series trophy is in another castle, one that doesn’t care one iota about run differential.

Game Over: The 2016 Seattle Mariners (Big League Stew)

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 16:57:37 PDT

Sorry, Seattle Mariners, your World Series trophy is in another castle. And if Bowser is in that castle, it would be the most on-brand one of these we’ve done.

Should the Giants have stuck with Matt Moore in the ninth inning? (Big League Stew)

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 00:02:17 PDT

When it ended, with the Chicago Cubs celebrating on the field at AT&T Park and with the San Francisco Giants learning what it felt like to lose a postseason series for the first time this decade, it didn’t take too long for the second-guessing to begin. This is the Giants we’re talking about. When it ended, it seemed obvious that if it were going to end for the 2016 Giants, it were going to end like this: A great start from Matt Moore followed by a horrific showing from the bullpen.

Cubs rally for 4 runs in 9th, beat Giants 6-5 to win NLDS (The Associated Press)

Tue, 11 Oct 2016 23:15:14 PDT

Kris Bryant tossed his glove high in the air, Jake Arrieta jumped over the dugout railing and the rest of the Chicago Cubs rushed to join the celebration. World Series favorites since opening day, the Cubs took another step in their championship chase Tuesday night by rallying for four runs in the ninth inning of Game 4 to beat San Francisco 6-5 and win their NL Division Series. Javier Baez's tiebreaking single capped the comeback against a beleaguered bullpen that sabotaged the Giants one last time.

Game Over: The 2016 Houston Astros (Big League Stew)

Tue, 11 Oct 2016 19:25:42 PDT

Sorry, Houston Astros, your World Series trophy is in another castle. Well, that, or maybe Colby Rasmus got there first and is off somewhere throwing an epic celebration party without you.

Cubs' Lackey knows all about KOing Giants (The Associated Press)

Tue, 11 Oct 2016 12:48:32 PDT

The last active pitcher to beat the San Francisco Giants in a postseason elimination game will seek to do it a second time Tuesday night when Chicago Cubs right-hander John Lackey takes the ball for Game 4 of the National League Division Series. The Giants staved off elimination with a 6-5, 13-inning victory Monday night, the 10th consecutive time San Francisco recorded a postseason win when a loss would have meant the end of the season. San Francisco won World Series titles in 2010, '12 and '14 but failed to capture the 2002 championship when Lackey, then a rookie, started for the Anaheim Angels on their way to a 4-1 win over the Giants in Game 7.

Game Over: The 2016 Kansas City Royals (Big League Stew)

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 18:03:00 PDT

Sorry, Kansas City Royals, your World Series trophy is in another castle. Probably the same one you left it in last year before losing the key.

Game Over: The 2016 New York Yankees (Big League Stew)

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 09:56:10 PDT

Sorry, New York Yankees, your World Series trophy is in another castle. A castle likely owned by Derek Jeter.

Game Over: The 2016 Baltimore Orioles (Big League Stew)

Sat, 08 Oct 2016 16:30:00 PDT

Sorry, Baltimore Orioles, your World Series trophy is in another castle. Maybe call the bullpen to see if your lonely closer has seen it.

Fri, 07 Oct 2016 15:02:51 PDT

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- The Tampa Bay Rays have outrighted left-handed pitcher Dana Eveland and three other players to Triple-A Durham.

Game Over: The 2016 New York Mets (Big League Stew)

Thu, 06 Oct 2016 19:57:07 PDT

Sorry, New York Mets, your World Series trophy is in another castle. In fact, rumor has it that it’s receiving treatment in the trainer’s room.

O for October: Boston's Price looking for 1st playoff win (The Associated Press)

Thu, 06 Oct 2016 16:54:20 PDT

David Price wants to make his next postseason start unlike all his others. Boston's left-hander is 0-7 in the postseason as a starter going into Game 2 of the AL Division Series, where he faces the Indians and right-hander Corey Kluber on Friday.

Wed, 05 Oct 2016 23:21:28 PDT

Entering 5th year, wild-card games have favored visitors (The Associated Press)

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 00:24:51 PDT

Fervent fans and last at-bats haven't done the home teams much good in the first eight wild-card games.

Old rookies Bush, Barnette took unique paths to AL playoffs (The Associated Press)

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 15:30:37 PDT

Matt Bush and Tony Barnette took drastically different and quite unconventional paths to becoming 30-something rookie relievers and locker mates with the AL West champion Texas Rangers. When the Rangers were in the playoffs last October, former No. 1 overall pick Bush was in the final month of a 3 +-year stint in prison for a drunken driving accident that nearly killed a man. The 32-year-old Barnette was finishing a record-setting season as a closer who helped the Tokyo Yakult Swallows reach the Japan Series.

MLB managers on the hot seat: Walt Weiss and Chip Hale fired, who's next? (Big League Stew)

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 15:18:32 PDT

The regular season might be over, but the real fun is just beginning for any club that didn’t make the postseason. When things don’t go your way in baseball, people get fired. The first to go was Colorado Rockies skipper Walt Weiss, who resigned his post after three seasons. The Arizona Diamondbacks then canned Chip Hale after two years, along with GM Dave Stewart.

Rays feel they're better than last-place finish in AL East (The Associated Press)

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 14:15:55 PDT

The Tampa Bay Rays insist they aren't as bad as their worst finish in nearly a decade might suggest. You have to go all the way back to 2007, when the franchise was still known as the dreadful Devil Rays, for an inferior record to this year's 68-94 mark that matched the second-worst in the majors and kept Tampa Bay in the basement of a division that sent three teams to the playoffs. ''We're not far off,'' manager Kevin Cash said.

Rangers wait for ALDS opponent after 6-4 loss to Tampa Bay (The Associated Press)

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 17:52:54 PDT

Now the Texas Rangers wait to find out their playoff opponent. After wrapping up a 95-win regular season on Sunday with a 6-4 loss in 10 innings to Tampa Bay, the AL West champion Rangers will open the AL Division Series at home on Thursday against the wild card winner - Baltimore or Toronto. When asked if it mattered if the Rangers (95-67) get another shot against the Blue Jays, shortstop Elvis Andrus responded, ''Not really, because our final prize is not beating one team.

Sat, 01 Oct 2016 23:55:43 PDT

Mets 5, Phillies 3 New York's James Loney got all of a 3-1 pitch in the sixth inning and sent a tiebreaking two-run homer over the fence in right field. The Mets never relinquished the advantage and clinched a 2016 National League wild-card berth with a 5-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday. New York hosts the San Francisco Giants or St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday.

A look at what's happening around the majors today:

Rays' Whitley completes comeback Sunday (The Associated Press)

Sat, 01 Oct 2016 21:50:23 PDT

Tampa Bay right-hander Chase Whitley could maybe follow the mold of Texas left-hander Martin Perez. Perez (10-11) is proof that you can make it all the way back from Tommy John surgery, which is what Whitley (0-0) is trying to do. Whitley makes his first big-league start since May 14, 2015, when he was a member of the New York Yankees.

Lewis loses 5th straight in playoff tuneup, Rays top Rangers (The Associated Press)

Sat, 01 Oct 2016 20:52:25 PDT

Colby Lewis feels ready for the playoffs, even though the Texas right-hander is taking a five-game losing streak into the postseason. Making his fourth start since missing more than two months with a muscle injury in his right arm and shoulder, Lewis allowed Corey Dickerson's three-run homer in the Tampa Bay Rays' 4-1 victory over the Rangers on Saturday night.

Giants to play a 163rd game; opponent TBD (The Associated Press)

Sat, 01 Oct 2016 18:04:43 PDT

The San Francisco Giants are assured of a 163rd game this season. The Giants can claim the second wild-card spot in the National League and a one-game showdown with the New York Mets in the Big Apple on Wednesday with either a win Sunday against the Los Angeles Dodgers or a St. Louis Cardinals loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Cardinals can still force a one-game wild-card tiebreaker against the Giants on Monday in St. Louis with a win Sunday and a San Francisco loss.
