Astros will not place Jason Castro on disabled list

MINNEAPOLIS – A month ago, Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow would probably not have hesitated to place catcher Jason Castro on the disabled list with the right quad strain he suffered Friday against the Twins. The calendar will help keep Castro off the DL as the team waits to add a catcher when rosters expand […]

Miguel Cabrera now qualifies for AL batting race, is favorite to win fourth batting title

Miguel Cabrera now qualifies for AL batting race, is favorite to win fourth batting title

A player has to average 3.1 plate appearances per game played by his team to qualify for the batting title. Cabrera now has 400 plate appearances in 129 games played by his team for an average of 3.1008 plate appearances. Miguel Cabrera went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts Saturday. Still, that performance helped him take the American League batting lead. The four plate appearances Cabrera had Saturday gave him enough to qualify among the league leaders for the first time since he was on the disabled list with a Grade 3 calf strain. Cabrera is batting .361 (121...

16 days until 49ers kickoff: Who wore it best? Tough call!

The San Francisco 49ers season starts in 16 days. We take a look at jersey No. 16, worn by a quarterback who was kind of OK. The San Francisco 49ers kick off the 2015 NFL regular season on Monday Night Football, on September 14. That game. means San Francisco is now a mere 17 days away from kicking off its 2015 regular season. In the spirit of that approaching date, I thought I would steal this idea from our Oakland Raiders site. Who wore it best: Seriously? What else is there to say (and sorry, that's the only picture I could find showing Montana and No. 16)? Joe Montana was the fourth...

Blue Jays 15, Tigers 1: :(

Blue Jays 15, Tigers 1: :(

The Tigers played a sloppy, poorly pitched game and Edwin Encarnacion had himself a day. The world requires witnesses and today I was witness to Detroit's grim baseball affair. While many people travelled, spent time with loved ones, watched other sports, shopped, exercised, drank beer, went fishing, took a boat ride and took part in any of the endless activities we have created to erase boredom and fill our lives with meaning, I bore witness to the Tigers playing baseball. Though it was difficult, I did not avert my eyes; I fixed my gaze on the abyss. The following is what I saw: It was...
