Rays 4, Astros 6: Pitching and defense can’t hold an early lead

Offense can’t get anything going after the first inning. The Rays jumped on the Astros for four runs in the first inning. It was a big inning that was extremely close to not happening at all. Corey Dickerson started off by swinging awkwardly at an 0-2 curve in the dirt. The pitch actually bounced hard off home plate and kicked away from catcher Brian McCann. Dickerson made it to first easily for the strikeout/wild pitch. In the next at bat, Logan Morrison lifted reached a changeup on the outside and hit it hard to straightaway center field, but The Trop held it. Also Jake Marisnick held...

Game #11: A's Defeated By Their Own Defense

Norichika Aoki, with an assist from Brian McCann and his late insurance runs, single-handedly provided all the offense the Astros would need against the A's anemic offense tonight. The A's couldn't mount any kind of a threat; solo home runs from Khris Davis and Trevor Plouffe made for a rather uneventful evening, unless you enjoyed the Little League display of throwing the ball around the field put on by their defense. And looming over the bad night was Kendall Graveman's early exit. As the music dies, something in your eyesCalls to mind the silver screenAnd all its sad...

Know your enemy: New York Yankees

The New York Yankees showed a strong second half in 2016, but is it for real? The New York Yankees are going to surprise some people this year—it’s probably best we get this right out in the open.
