Rockies held to one hit in 3-0 loss to Giants

Madison Bumgarner throws dominant one-hitter, Giants win

Madison Bumgarner was a warlock. Justin Morneau was an Eric Chavez. That was as dominant as Madison Bumgarner can possibly be. Before lamenting what could have been, before digging into the factlets and minutia, recognize what that was. That was an excellent pitcher at his absolute best. He might have better seasons in the future. He might morph into a perennial All-Star over the next 15 years. He might blow a snot rocket in front of horrified onlookers during a speech at Cooperstown. But the odds are great that he'll never pitch better than that. It wasn't just the lack of baserunners....

Tuesday Twins: Japan, rain delays, beer, and other important things

Tuesday Twins: Japan, rain delays, beer, and other important things

Good morning folks! Here are today's links: Glen Perkins is on the tentative roster to play for the US against Japan's national team in a five-game series in November. Brian Dozier and Phil Hughes could join him. Hey, guess who has the highest batting average in the NL? Justin Morneau (.317). Second highest? Ben Revere (.311). Remember when Duluth Pack made those purses and bags out of the old Metrodome roof? Now they've upped the ante with purses and bags made out of the old Metrodome baggie in right field. The Twins extended their affiliation with the AAA Rochester Red Wings...

Phillies Notes: Hot-hitting Ben Revere is a walkless wonder

One of the more remarkable aspects of Ben Revere's rise to the top of the National League's batting leaders - he tied Colorado's Justin Morneau at .314 on Sunday - was how he mounted hits without any walks. Then he watched five Justin Masterson pitches to draw a walk in the first inning of a 7-1 win over St. Louis, and another productive day commenced.

Corey Dickerson, Justin Morneau may swing batting title

Corey Dickerson, Justin Morneau may swing batting title

Their lockers in the Rockies' clubhouse are close enough to connect with two bats, even if Justin Morneau has an 11-year jump-start and more than 1,300 hits on Corey Dickerson. Colorado's two best hitters are more closely linked in head-to-head competition.

Mariners rumors: Drew Stubbs, in all sincerity

The Mariners made a formal offer for Drew Stubbs, but would he really help or are his stats a Coors Field mirage? The Mariners are more than a little interested in Drew Stubbs. The former 8th overall pick saw his career in flux after two disappointing seasons in Cleveland, but then headed west where hitting careers are revitalized. Stubbs is having a resurgent year, much like other hitters have after heading to Colorado over the years, including teammate Justin Morneau. Last week, the Mariners went further than expressing interest and submitted a formal offer. Summary: Stubbs is still the...
