Dodgers activate closer Kenley Jansen from disabled list

All-Star closer Kenley Jansen was activated off the disabled list for the Dodgers earlier than expected after being cleared by a cardiologist. Manager Dave Roberts said Jansen was available for Monday night’s series opener against St. Louis. Jansen hasn’t pitched since Aug. 7 and was on the 10-day DL after being hospitalized for an irregular heartbeat Aug. 9 when the team was in Denver to play the Rockies. Jansen initially was expected to miss about a month. He previously was treated for an irregular heartbeat in 2011 and 2012. He has...

Daily Red Sox Links: Was Manny Ramirez better with Boston or Cleveland?

Daily Red Sox Links: Was Manny Ramirez better with Boston or Cleveland?

With the Red Sox taking on Cleveland, it got me thinking about Manny Ramirez. Plus David Price is an ace again, catching up with Jessica Mendoza and Terry Francona’s thoughts on the 2018 Red Sox. Manny Ramirez played for eight years with the Boston Red Sox. He helped them win two World Series, hit some epic home runs, made some interesting fielding choices and birthed the “Manny Being Manny” meme before the internet was bursting at the seems with such things. But before he was a Boston legend, he was one with the Cleveland Indians. For eight years before he signed with the Red Sox...

56-71 - Rangers do their part to shake up AL West race, lose 9-0

Operation Screw Houston is in full effect No one wants to see the Astros win the AL West. They’re old news. They’ve lived long enough to become the villain. Everyone wants to see the Astros get hilariously blasted out of the playoffs. Sure, it’s not like we’re friends with any other AL West team but it would be supremely funny if the 2018 Oakland Athletics won the division and made Houston have to play a Wild Card game with their fingers crossed. The Rangers were just doin’ their duty to make Houston sweat tonight. You’re welcome, everyone. Player of the Game: I mean, Bartolo...
