  4. Indians rise to AL stealth contender status

  5. Peavy a key to Giants' stretch-run potential

    Christina Kahrl

    It almost looked like Peavy had a no-hitter in him Saturday night. He pitched into the eighth against the Brewers without allowing a base hit, and just enough things seemed to be breaking his way to make you think he'd wind up with his first career n...

  7. Pirates must rely on big reinforcements

    Christina Kahrl

  8. Athletics need to be worried for stretch run

    Christina Kahrl

    The A's have been on top for months, with the best record in baseball to brag about, and they're supposed to be the runaway winners in the AL West. But in case you've missed it, they're not running away any more, and not just because the Angels have ...

  10. Nationals starting to live up to expectations

    Christina Kahrl

    Do the Nationals have the NL East won? It's worth asking now, because with a six-game lead over the Braves after their latest victory over the Mets on Thursday night, we might end up with the Nats walking away. That would no doubt be especially sweet...

  12. Tigers' injuries narrow AL Central race

    Christina Kahrl

    If you went by star power and expectations alone, the Detroit Tigers were supposed to have long since sewed up the AL Central. But much as they had trouble fending off the Cleveland Indians last year, this year it looks as if events will conspire to ...

    Christina Kahrl

    Maybe it's a matter of sympathy for a team that lost much of its rotation to the surgeon before a pitch had been thrown. Maybe it's because we all love prospects, and indulge them their shortcomings while anticipating their glorious futures. But with...

  14. Angels add Richards to big O for 'best' bid

    Christina Kahrl

    One ballgame does not a four-game, home-and-home, crosstown series make -- not when the Angels are in what figures to be a two-month race yet to run against the other AL West candidate for best team in baseball, the Oakland A's. But on Monday, the An...

    Christina Kahrl
