  1. It's Not Quite a Miracle, But the Angels Have Achieved AL We...

    Michael Baumann

    Baseball is unlike real life in that it features levels of stupidity that cannot be overcome by sheer force of economic might. Last year, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim paid $61.1 million total to Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton, Jered Weaver, and C....

    Jonah Keri

    There's no denying the incredible seasons Clayton Kershaw and Felix Hernandez are having. Kershaw's 2014 achievements have been remarkable: He threw a 15-strikeout, no-walk no-hitter that ranks among the best pitching performan...

  3. MLB Midseason Report

    Jonah Keri

    Welcome to the MLB All-Star break, a necessary pause during the grueling baseball campaign, and also the most boring time of the season for many fans. Since I've already said my piece on the yawnfest, let's turn our attention to something w...

    One Easter Sunday during college, I pulled on my wrinkled khakis and last clean dress shirt and walked a couple of blocks to the closest Methodist church. This church had its roots in the antebellum South, but despite being within sight of t...

  6. Bryce Harper’s Bad Break and Avoiding the Danger of the Mis...

    Michael Baumann

    The only bad thing about Mike Trout is that his greatness prevents us from truly appreciating Bryce Harper, who's one of the most talented baseball players in the world. Rare left-handed power is Harper's party piece, but he combines it wit...

  7. Harper Being Harper, and More Snap Judgments From Opening Day(s)

    Michael Baumann

    The 2014 MLB season is only a day and change old. To borrow a phrase from James Earl Jones's greatest career role as Admiral James Greer: "The data support no conclusions as yet." Still, some teams have played some games, which means ...

  8. The Year in Prodigies

    Andrew Sharp

    Somewhere in my parents' house, there is a giant box of magazines that's a gold mine of late-’90s, early-’00s sports. Maybe they've been thrown out by now, but the box weighs enough so there's a good chance those 250 or 300 old magazines ...

    Michael Baumann

    Hockey gets a lot of things right, but I'm particularly fond of its awards. While the NHL has the usual offerings — MVP, rookie of the year, coach of the year — the league separates itself with some really creative honors. Plus, all the a...

    Michael Baumann

    If baseball's MVP voters allowed objective criteria to guide them, we wouldn't have much of a debate about which two players deserve to win the award. But without debate, why bother caring about sports? Often, the empirics are so overwhelmingly in fa...

  12. The MLB Weekend Top 10: Into the Wild-Card Wilderness

    Shane Ryan

    It's the last weekend of the regular season, which means it's also the last MLB Weekend Top 10. That would be sad, in its way, if I weren't just drowning in Coca-Cola right now. I don't have any emotions except alert, and so I can't write a proper eu...

    Rany Jazayerli

    Even if the Angels outfielder doesn't win the MVP this season, no other hitter has been this great at such a young age.

  16. Mike Trout's Ridiculous Encore Performance

    Jonah Keri

    Last year, Mike Trout was the best player in baseball (even if voters and players disagreed). His was one of the best rookie seasons of all time, ranking with Dwight Gooden's off-the-charts '85 campaign as one of the best efforts ever for a player in...
