  1. What to do if you own Josh Hamilton

    Eric Karabell

    Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia certainly raised eyebrows this past weekend when he said outfielder Josh Hamilton, now in his second season with the club, is not the same player he was previously with the Texas Rangers. Perhaps it's a motiva...

  2. Mike Fiers and the sneaky K club

    Eric Karabell

  3. Who's on pace for 20/20 seasons?

    Eric Karabell

    It's not easy as it used to be to finish a baseball season with more than 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases. Nine players achieved the feat last season, 10 the year before and 12 in 2011. Basically, the trend of five-category fantasy options continues...

  4. Results differ as Hamilton, Trout return

    Eric Karabell

  5. Peralta among most unlucky hitters so far

    Eric Karabell

  7. Bits: Closer situations surprisingly stable

    Eric Karabell

    The closing situation for the Los Angeles Angels might seem up for reasonable debate, but rest assured that right-hander Ernesto Frieri is the preferred choice for manager Mike Scioscia. Yes, setup man Dane De La Rosa saved Tuesday's victory, but onl...

  9. Yadier Molina's injury, potential fill-ins

    Eric Karabell

    Things were looking so good for the St. Louis Cardinals last week, but now the losses are piling up. For one, the team has lost six consecutive games, including Tuesday's doubleheader sweep by the legitimate Pittsburgh Pirates. A bigger loss, however...
