MLB Bullets reaches a verdict

The Yankees come back and Aaron Judge is a star again. The Dodgers are good. A radical realignment proposal. Baseball chips in to help a kid who lost everything in a fire. I’m sure everyone is in a terrific mood today. By the way, I think I’m running out of “Judge” puns. The Yankees have won the last two games of the American League Championship Series and outfielder Aaron Judge has homered in both of them. Ian O’Connor writes that Judge has officially entered the pantheon of Yankees October gods. Tom Verducci marvels at Judge and compares him to Derek Jeter, thinking that Judge...

Yu Darvish has a tricky but possible fit with the Mariners

If the Mariners want to add an ace this offseason, the best choice is clear. Is that wise? There are a number of ways to go about improving the Mariners pitching staff next rhis offseason, and signing an ace is not essential. Alex Cobb would be a major step forward. Lance Lynn would help edge Seattle 3/5ths of the way to Kate’s dream of a 100% former Cardinals starting rotation. Tyler Chatwood is... debatable. If Seattle wants a surefire frontline ace to accompany James Paxton, however, there’s only one avenue they can pursue with significant control. Yu Darvish would improve the...

Maddon: 'Keep believing' in Cubs' comeback

The Cubs are two games away from being stopped short in defense of their World Series championship, and their right-handed-hitting second baseman, Javier Baez, is hitless in 19 at-bats in the postseason. They have three other options at the position, all of whom would hit left-handed against Dodgers right-hander Yu Darvish on Tuesday.

Washington Nationals’ Stephen Strasburg meets 2017 goals; throws devastating changeup; erases doubts in NLDS Game 4...

Even if he didn’t answer the bell in Game 4 of the NLDS and dominate the Cubs to keep the Nationals’ season alive, Stephen Strasburg put together a dominant 2017 campaign. Coming off a 2016 campaign that ended prematurely when he suffered a torn pronator tendon in his right arm, Stephen Strasburg, who missed out on an opportunity to pitch in the postseason for the second time in Washington’s three appearances, had one goal in mind. “I called Mad Dog in the morning and said, ‘Just give me the ball.’ That's what he did.” - Stephen Strasburg on answering the bell in Game 5 of...

Monday Morning Mets Mind Boggler: 90-run seasons

Can you name every Met to score at least 90 runs in a season? This year, for the fourth time in his career, Jose Reyes led the Mets in runs scored.

For this week’s Mind Boggler, we’re asking you to name every player in Mets history to score at least 90 runs in a season. Every player in Mets history with at least 90 runs in a season Mets players have accomplished the feat 42 times. However, because...
