Red Sox 8, Angels 3: Mike Napoli is back

That bat flip says it all. Mike Napoli made it official Saturday night: he's back, and back in a big way. Driving in three runs on two homers, the first baseman gave the Red Sox exactly what they needed at the plate to snap their three-game losing streak with a 8-3 win over the Angels. The way Steven Wright's night started, it hardly seemed like four runs would be enough. The Angels put up a pair on the knuckleballer in about the most foreboding two-run first inning possible. It wasn't just the run-scoring doubles from Albert Pujols and Kole Calhoun that were hard hit, but the outs from...

Albert Pujols not in Angels' lineup, glad that hand injury wasn't worse

A retrospective of Jaime Garcia's career with the St. Louis Cardinals (thus far)

It is a relationship that started 10 years ago with the last pick in the 22nd round (680th overall) of the 2005 MLB Draft. One year prior, the St. Louis Cardinals produced one of their best regular seasons in franchise history (105-57), but fell short of the ultimate goal as the Boston Red Sox bullied their way to a World Series sweep. While the pitching staff consisted of some relatively big names at the time (i.e. Matt Morris, Chris Carpenter, and Jason Isringhausen), it is clear that the MV3 (Albert Pujols, Scott Rolen, and Jim Edmonds) stole the show, especially in a league dominated...

Thor'sLinks: Trout is 3/4's of the Halo offense. Sounds about right.

Now you face the Mightiest Avenger of all! As frustrating as things have been this season, you have to admit we have had bits and pieces of good fortune. Albert Pujols gets whacked in the wrist with a pitch by Drew Hutchison, and is forced to exit the game. So Marc Krauss is inserted as his substitute and ends up chopping a soft liner to the left field gap for a double, driving in the tying and winning runs. That would increase Krauss' hit total for the entire season to.....two.............(And then, for more luck, we learn that X-rays on Pujols' wrist came back negative. He is listed as...

Final: Subbing for Albert Pujols, Marc Krauss has big hit for Angels

Final: Subbing for Albert Pujols, Marc Krauss has big hit for Angels

TORONTO – Maybe the Angels should have had Marc Krauss protecting Mike Trout instead of Albert Pujols all along. After Pujols left Wednesday’s game with a left hand contusion, Krauss took his spot in the lineup. Krauss came through with a...
