  3. Tigers' Scherzer just another figure filbert

    Rob Neyer

    Hey, Brian Bannister and Zack Greinke aren't the only pitchers who look at non-traditional statistics on their laptops in the clubhouse. Max Scherzer might have an ugly ERA, but at least he's paying attention. Steve Kornacki: What fans might not rea...

  4. On being wrong (about the Giants)

    Rob Neyer

    As I'm on a train speeding toward McCovey Cove, this seems a good time -- no, rather it's the perfect time -- to wonder if I was wrong about the San Francisco Giants. See, I thought they were going to finish in fourth place. I had them behind the ...

  6. Thanks to Twins, attendance steady

    Rob Neyer

    Tom Van Riper on some early returns: Good thing the powers that be in Major League Baseball reconsidered their idea to contract the Minnesota Twins in the 1990s. They may just end up saving the 2010 season. Before Game 2 of the 2009 World Series...

  8. Francona wonders who wrote 'book'

    Rob Neyer

    When is a controversy not a controversy? How about Wednesday night when Gerald Laird tried to break up a no-hitter by laying down a bunt in the sixth inning? Laird's bunt went foul, Beckett finally gave up a hit in the seventh and then he plunked...

    Rob Neyer

    Pinto on the amazing fading Diamondbacks: The Arizona Diamondbacks are in one of the worst team slumps I can remember. Felipe Lopez, a most unlikely hero, is hitting like an MVP but the rest of the regulars are not producing. Three players with at l...
