    Twins Pitcher With Another Candidate For ‘Worst Pitch Ever’

    Samuel Deduno of the Twins was all set to start the fourth inning when he decided he wasn’t ready. So instead of throwing a pitch, he decided to play a little game of catch…with himself. It’s like he was back in his backyard throwing flyballs to himself all over again… […]

    Tigers Hit Ben Zobrist In Retaliation For Not Hitting Miguel Cabrera

    On Saturday night, Fernando Rodney threw a pitch up-and-in to Miguel Cabrera. Cabrera wasn’t happy. After the game Jim Leyland said “there’s a price to pay for that.” And sure enough, in his first at bat, Ben Zobrist was hit by a pitch thrown by Rick Porcello. So, just so we are all on the same […]

    [UPDATE] Good news. Rays are reporting that Longoria just aggravated the plantar fasciitis condition in his foot. [EARLIER] Evan Longoria was removed from the game after the second inning with what appeared to be another leg muscle injury. Longoria was running out a groundout when he slowed down near first […]

    More Painful Evidence That Jose Molina Is Really Slow

    Jose Molina has five stolen bases over the last two seasons and is a very smart baserunner. But that doesn’t change the fact that he might be the slowest player in baseball. How slow? Robinson Cano stopped and took a nap in the middle of this double-play and the throw […]

    You have to give Jose Molina credit. He is as slow as a dead turtle, but he is a smart baserunner. Today he stole his second base of the season. And since joining the Rays last season he is 5-6 in the steal department. OK, the pitch got away from […]

    This was the first trip of the season to Yankee Stadium so we also got our first chance to see the YES Network’s “YES VIEW” put to use on the Rays. It is basically a Matrix-style compilation of many different cameras to give us a not-quite-360-degree view of Yunel Escobar’s […]

    Back in 2011 we ran a post comparing David Price’s windup from that season to his windup from the 2008 season when he was first promoted to the majors. Here is that side-by-side… What stood out to me at the time was that the movements in Price’s windup had been […]

    This is how Joe Maddon described Jose Molina scoring from second on Wednesday night… “I was almost sucked out of the dugout by the vortex J-Mo created when he rounded 3rd on Zo’s single. It’s like getting caught in jet wash.” Earlier this year we learned that when Molina runs […]

    Brian Anderson mentioned during the broadcast last night that Wil Myers looked like Evan Longoria standing at the plate, specifically pointing out that both had an open stance. Well, here is a look at the swing of both players and the similarities are pretty scary… Here are a couple of […]
