So for those who saw the final game of the series against the Giants, you clearly saw Mike Pelfrey looking uncomfortable on the mound. And I literately mean on the mound. The current record for most balks in the game is 5, set by Bobby Shaw in 1963. Mike Pelfrey gave up 3 in his start. This not only ties a Mets record for most balks in a game, but also is tied for the second […]
Stephen Strasburg continues his phenomenal season seemingly outdoing himself every time he takes the mound. The latest feather in his cap? How about a no-hitter with 17 strikeouts! While facing a pretty solid Air Force lineup, Strasburg hurled first no-hitter of his career on Friday night as the Aztecs won 5-0 in front of a packed stadium. Strasburg allowed just two baserunners all night, both via walks. He struck out 17 batters and needed only 116 pitches to do it. […]
The Associated Press is reporting that Dom DiMaggio has passed away. DiMaggio, a seven-time All Star who still holds the record for the longest consecutive game hitting streak in Boston Red Sox history, has died at his Massachusetts home. He was 92. DiMaggio, the brother of New York Yankees Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio, died at about about 1 a.m. on Friday, according to his wife, Emily. Dom was the youngest of three brothers who […]
The LA Times is reporting that Manny Ramirez has tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs and will be suspended 50 games starting today. Apparently, the test result and suspension is expected to be announced later today. The suspension will cost Ramirez $7.7 million, or roughly 31% of his $25-million salary. Players in violation of baseball’s drug policy are not paid during suspensions. Ramirez is expected to attribute the test results to medication received from a doctor […]
The Dodgers became the first National League team since 1900 to win their first 11 home games, overcoming an Arizona triple play to beat the Diamondbacks with a homer and three RBIs from Manny Ramirez. The defending NL West champions broke the previous league record for longest home winning streak to start a season, set by the 1918 New York Giants and equaled by the 1970 Chicago Cubs and 1983 Atlanta Braves — who were […]
The Associated Press is reporting that the mother of New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain is jailed in Nebraska and facing a felony charge after being arrested on suspicion of selling methamphetamine to an undercover police officer in February. Lincoln Police Capt. David Beggs said Monday that 44-year-old Jacqueline Standley was arrested at her apartment Saturday night. Beggs said she allegedly sold 1 gram of a substance believed to be meth to an undercover officer […]
As the Mets venture South to Philly this weekend following a less-than-stellar beginning to their season, I thought it might brighten some peoples’ day by pointing out what occurred last night in Chicago. The Cubs and Marlins were locked in a 2-2 tie going into the 10th. In walks Aaron Heilman. Heilman did not record an out, and gave up three hits, two walks and six runs. Flashbacks anyone? Up until last night, Heilman was […]
Former Met reliever Darren O’Day was picked up on waivers by the Texas Rangers, dressed in Kason Gabbard’s jersey, and gave up a game-winning hit to Kevin Millar. O’Day reported to Rogers Centre for a game against the Toronto Blue Jays before there was a chance to stitch up a jersey with his name, so he was forced to wear Texas minor-leaguer Kason Gabbard’s jersey. O’Day was thrown into the game in the 11th, with […]
Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels left Thursday’s series finale against the Milwaukee Brewers after being struck in the shoulder by a line drive. One pitch after giving up a two-run homer to Ryan Braun in the fourth inning, Prince Fielder laced an infield single that hit Hamels in the front of his left shoulder. Trainers immediately tended to Hamels, who left the game with what the team called a left shoulder contusion. He was replaced by […]
