    Matt Borcas

    Michael Baumann

    Nelson Cruz hit two home runs last night, and while I'm not ordinarily a huge Cruz fan, I can't deny that he's having an incredible season: Those two homers were his league-leading 18th and 19th, and he's slugging an AL-best .66...

    Jonah Keri

    Not too long ago, David Ortiz looked like he might be cooked. Boston's hulking DH had posted huge numbers through the first three and a half months of the 2012 season, hitting .316/.414/.609 with 23 homers and 25 doubles in just 89 games...

  8. As Coco Crisp's Homers Go, So Go the Oakland A's

    Jonah Keri

    In 2011 and 2012, Coco Crisp did something very odd: Despite turning 32 and 33 in those years (his birthday is in November), he stole more bases in those two seasons than during any other two-year stretch of his career. Crisp would be the first to te...

    Michael Baumann

    Sunday afternoon, the Phillies came back from down 2-0 to beat the Reds. That's not particularly newsworthy on its own — the Phillies aren't a bad team, and in a game as unpredictable as baseball, comebacks like that are commonplace. But di...
