Worth clicking on for nothing more than the video of a thoroughly endearing clubhouse interview with Cristian Colon and basestealing hero Jarrod Dyson:
What a game.
KANSAS CITY, Mo.—Adam Dunn trekked 14 seasons and 2,001 games just to get to the postseason. But when his one and only playoff chance arrived Tuesday, he never got off the bench, and afterward he said he will retire.
The Oakland Athletics designated hitter, 34, told ESPN’s Pedro Gomez that he has played his final game.
“I guess the computer got me,” Dunn said, referring to the A’s “Moneyball” tactics.
Jeter’s got a brand new bag.
Ventura in the 6th surprised everybody.
I predict the Red Sox will not win the World Series this year.
Milwaukee Journal, October 1, 1914:
Closer to home, the “three strikes” policy in California attracted a wave of support by appealing to Americans’ sporting ideals and love of baseball. The measure, which mandated that repeat criminal offenders be imprisoned for life, drained state coffers while cramming jails with shoplifters and petty thieves. “Confronted with a hard question like how to deal with the complexities and challenges of prison policy,” Pollack told me over the phone, “most of us would prefer to swap in ...Read More...

John Davidson just keeps following Jesse around.
An explanation of how the A’s, Royals, and Orioles used outstanding bullpens and fielders to make the playoffs despite lacking stars in their lineups and starting rotations.
Philadelphia Evening Ledger, September 30, 1914:
HERE WE GO!
Oakland Athletics (Lester) at Kansas City Royals (James Shields), 8 PM Eastern, TBS.
Small sample sizes alert!
But interesting. The A’s acquisitions (Samardzija, Lester, Fuld, Hammel, Gomes) added 4.3 WAR so even if you deduct the full 1.3 WAR that Cespedes gave Boston, that’s a 3 win improvement. The M’s acquisitions (Denorfia, Morales, Jackson) put up -1.1 WAR. I wonder if they’d ...Read More...

The 1955 Dodgers were my father’s team. There aren’t many of them left.
RBI Baseball NES mod for the 2014 playoff teams.
Gardenhire joined the organization in 1987 and was added to Kelly’s staff in 1991. His record as Twins manager was 1,068-1,039. He won the AL Manager of the Year award in 2010, the last time the Twins not only made the playoffs but had a winning record.
Pittsburgh Press, September 29, 1914:
“Governor Tener. Stop. You’re a big stinky poopy head. Stop. Your mother wears army boots. Stop.”

It was more than a year ago that Harvey emerged from an MRI tube in Manhattan, setting the Mets on their current path. Testing that day revealed a partially torn ligament in Harvey’s right elbow. He underwent surgery. The Mets lost their best pitcher and—though they shied away from admitting it at the time—their greatest chance at a quick return to playoff glory.
They fought anyway. They propped themselves up by signing Curtis Granderson and Bartolo Colon at the Winter Meetings, ...Read More...
Have the Nats peaked too soon???
the brewers owner had some frank things to say over the weekend
BOSTON — Even before Derek Jeter plays his final game for the Yankees, which is scheduled to take place here Sunday, the focus has turned from Jeter to Alex Rodriguez — from a cherished star to a tarnished one….
With Rodriguez, there never seems to be a question of whether he is working hard. Cashman said Rodriguez had been working out diligently on his own in Miami and at U.C.L.A. and was eager to return. He said Rodriguez did not express an interest in playing winter ball, although ...Read More...
