  2. When Owners Attack

    Rob Neyer

    Once "Child Hell Flight" gets canceled, maybe there will be room for my favorite idea for a reality show: "When Owners Attack" ... The CEO of the Texas Rangers called New York Yankees fans "violent," "apathetic" and "an embarrassment" for their ...

  3. Giants find easiest way to win: Play better

    Rob Neyer

    Did Bruce Bochy out-manage Ron Washington in Game 1? Not really. Cliff Lee gave up seven runs, and there wasn't any obvious point at which Washington should have removed Lee before most of the damage was done. With any other pitcher, maybe? But Le...

  4. Rangers had 'em all the way

    Rob Neyer

    I will probably go to my grave believing that the New York Yankees were better than the Texas Rangers in 2010. I believe, right now, that the difference between them probably wasn't as large as most of us thought, a few weeks ago. The Yankees o...

  5. The untold story about the Rangers

    Rob Neyer

    As Neil Paine writes, these Texas Rangers are radically different from the Rangers, not so long ago, who had the game's highest-paid player and their division's worst record. According to Paine, the transformation has been all about priorities: Larg...

  6. Should Cliff Lee have started Game 4?

    Rob Neyer

    As I write this early in Game 4 of the Rays-Rangers series, Tampa Bay's got a 1-0 lead against Texas and starting pitcher Tommy Hunter. I've got no way of knowing how this one turns out. Before the game, though, Jeff Passan was highly critical of the...

  7. Aybar can't save Rays, but Shields might

    Rob Neyer

    OK, so the Tampa Bay Rays definitely win the award for Biggest Roster Problems After Just One Game: The Tampa Bay Rays removed designated hitter/outfielder Rocco Baldelli from their American League Division Series roster Thursday and added Willy...

  8. Rangers' Cliff Lee never really went away

    Rob Neyer

    The Texas Rangers' 5-1 victory against the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 1 of the ALDS suggests one thing you might not have known (or might have forgotten), and one thing Joe Maddon and his bosses might not have known. What you might not have known is t...

  9. M's still facing questions about prospect

    Rob Neyer

    Mariners prospect Josh Lueke has some crazy strikeout numbers in the minors. He's also got some crazy baggage, and a lot of people are still trying to figure out what the Mariners knew before they traded for him, and when they knew it. Geoff Baker (w...

  10. With Lee, Rangers go from good to great

    Rob Neyer

    Here's BBTIA on the trade that's sending Cliff Lee to Texas, and Justin Smoak, prospect Blake Beavan, and two other minor leaguers to Seattle. The guts: Some people turning up here probably want to read my snapshot reaction. Losing Smoak hurts (an...

  11. Rangers on a roll, but for real?

    Rob Neyer

    It's not the biggest story and probably shouldn't be, but I'm not sure enough people have heard about the Texas Rangers winning 10 straight games. Last night they ran their record 43-28 and now they -- and not the Red Sox or the Rays or any other agg...

  12. Jays waiting for big 'WOW'

    Rob Neyer

    Did you hear that sound, just now? When the Phillies and Indians agreed on a deal that will bring Cliff Lee to Philadelphia? That was the sound of the Blue Jays' leverage in Roy Halladay discussions. And apparently the Jays still aren't clos...
