You have to hand it to Josh Hamilton. While he's constantly on guard against his personal demons, he somehow still seems to be exactly what we want all athletes to be -- a big kid playing a child's game. "Hands down, he's the best player in the...
Last week's ranking in parentheses. 1. Cardinals (1): Only the Rockies can match their lineup. Nobody can match their balance, with Adam Wainwright right back where he was in 2009-10 as a Cy Young candidate. 2. Braves (4): Julio Teheran and Kris...
Can a backup catcher be an All-Star? Absolutely, if Evan Gattis is the backup catcher in question. The Braves rookie lost his spot in the lineup when Brian McCann was activated from the disabled list, but he just keeps bashing the ball, most recently as...
Major League Baseball finds itself with a real dilemma in the Biogenesis scandal. It's not whether to suspend the 20-plus players who are implicated; it's when to drop the hammer and take the artificially enhanced players off the field. An extended...
Seeing Roger Clemens on the verge of becoming a 50-year-old big league starter makes me feel bad for Jamie Moyer. While not blessed with Clemens' powerful build or pitching repertoire, Moyer got the absolute most out of his career — and he didn't...
SURPRISE, Ariz. — It takes one to know one. A.J. Pierzynski has found a good match in new boss Nolan Ryan. The Hall of Famer who is president and part-owner of the Rangers loves that his new catcher is an instigator who doesn't mind aggravating...

At the risk of messing with the sabermetric lobby, Mike Trout wasn't the biggest difference-maker in baseball this season. No, this is not just another plug for Miguel Cabrera and calculations you can do in your head. It's actually an endorsement for...
ARLINGTON, Texas — On the other side of the globe, a nation will turn to video screens big and small at about 7:10 Monday night — or, 14 time zones away, 9:10 a.m. Tuesday in Tokyo. Yu Darvish, almost certainly the best pitcher ever in Japan,...
