Game 128, Mariners at White Sox

Roenis Elias vs. Carlos Rodon, 5:10pm Welcome back, Roenis. The Cuban lefty evidently wasn’t terribly happy about being in Tacoma and stunk up the PCL for a while before his recent recall. He’s obviously been much better in the big leagues, although exactly why is an interesting question for someone to research. Unlike many (most?) This post came from: U.S.S.

Analysis: Reexamining the Tigers' decision to trade David Price, Yoenis Cespedes

The Tigers decided to be sellers at last months non-waiver trade deadline, and -- as a result -- they decided to trade away three of their top players. Its too late to go back now. DETROIT -- Ian Kinsler believes there's no sense in dwelling on the past. What's done is done, he said. The Detroit Tigers decided to be sellers at last month's non-waiver trade deadline, and -- as a result -- they decided to trade away three of the team's top players. It's too late to go back now. "We just don't think about it," Kinsler said after the Tigers' 2-0 loss Thursday. But...

Twinsights: Byron Buxton has a rough night (four strikeouts)

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The last time Byron Buxton struck out four times in a game, back on June 24 against Chris Sale and friends, he landed on the disabled list with a sprained left thumb the next day. Thursday night was different. This time Buxton was healthy, Twins manager Paul Molitor said, as he fanned in all four plate appearances against left-hander Drew Smyly and righty Alex Colome. Buxton saw a total of 17 pitches in those four trips, so Chris Herrmann (.172 average) was sent up to hit for Buxton with the Twins down to their last out […] The post Twinsights: Byron Buxton has a...

Rays 5 - Twins 4: Rays avoid sweep, Bullpen leads way to comeback win

The Rays needed to win this game to avoid getting swept at the hands of the Minnesota Twins and, thanks to the bullpen, they did just that. After dropping the first two games in the series at home, the Rays looked to avoid the sweep at the hands of the Minnesota Twins, one of the teams they're chasing for the final wild card spot. Looking to help in that effort, Drew Smyly took the hill as he tried to build on the scoreless outing he posted his last start in Oakland. Smyly worked a strong first inning, as he struck out two Minnesota hitters around a double by the always-on Joe Mauer....

White Sox 4, Mariners 2: Dressed for success

The jerseys were untucked, but the play was comported in series-opening victory over Seattle The White Sox didn't look particularly good tonight, but at least it was limited to the uniforms. While their throwback jerseys from the late 1970s struggled to accommodate 2015 jersey manufacturing, there wasn't anything wrong with their performance, really. The White Sox offense and Carlos Rodon gradually built a 4-0 lead through six innings, and once Rodon's release point left him, four relievers made it hold up without bringing the tying run to the plate in the ninth.
