Mid-Game Update From Philly: It's Wild

Not much going on here in Philly, except: *The Rockies lead, 5-3, in the bottom of the seventh. *The Phillies have used two of their (theoretical) starting pitchers in relief, and one of them, lefty J.A. Happ, had to leave the game after being hit in the leg by a...

The Phillies' Game 3 Starter, In Cholly-Speak

There's still a lot of mystery surrounding the identity of the Philadelphia Phillies' starting pitcher for Saturday night's Game 3 in Denver. Phillies Manager Charlie ("ol' Cholly") Manuel was grilled on the topic today prior to Game 2 and he talked circles around it, as only ol' Cholly can. After...

Day 1 of Postseason: Aces Wild

Six teams took the field Wednesday, the opening day of baseball's postseason, and four of them had their ace on the mound in Game 1. The two teams that didn't? The Dodgers, because they don't really have one (although Clayton Kershaw, who pitches tonight in Game 2, is on the...

Through Six In Philly, It's 5-0 Phils

That strong wind blowing out to right (estimated at 26 mph at gametime)? Hasn't made much of a difference so far in Game 1 of the National League Division Series between the Phillies and Rockies. Through six, the story has been Cliff Lee's dominance -- precisely what the Phillies were...

Postseason Picks... And Greetings From Philly

Gorgeous afternoon here in Philadelphia, with the wind blowing hard out to right field. (Hello, Ryan Howard!) The first pitch of the postseason is about two hours, 45 minutes away. Hope you all saw that Twins/Tigers game last night, which was merely one of the greatest games I've ever seen....

Rank Detroit's Collapse

Where do the Tigers rank in terms of all-time choke jobs? First? Second? A distant fourth? Does the fact they made it to Game No. 163 -- a one-game playoff for the divisional crown -- make their story more or less heartbreaking? More or less defensible? What do you think?

Tigers Strike First

The Tigers are out in the lead in the one-game, winner-take-all bid for a playoff spot thanks to a walk from Twins starter Scott Baker and hits from Magglio Ordonez and a towering homer by Miguel Cabrera, he of significant controversy entering this afternoon's game.
