  2. Rangers have too many edges over Giants

    Rob Neyer

    The ink is barely dry on Saturday night's box score, so what you're about to read (I hope) is hardly the last word on the Rangers and the Giants. We've got three full days to analyze the stuffing out of the 2010 World Series. Still, a few quick t...

  4. Phillies same team that scored plenty all season

    Rob Neyer

    Following the Giants' blanking of the Phillies in Game 3, you might be wondering something along the lines of, "What's wrong with these Phillies? They're supposed to have this great lineup, and they can't score any runs? If it wasn't for Roy Halladay...

  5. Dawson's leadership scores extra

    Rob Neyer

    Well, we know one guy who voted for Andre Dawson: There could not be a more deserving representative for the Hall and for Montreal than Dawson. I worked with the man as a rookie and then for the first 11 years of his career and it should say all tha...

  6. When the sac bunt is really really stupid

    Rob Neyer

    It happened last Saturday in Philadelphia. Best pitching duel this season. For the Phillies, Roy Halladay. For the Reds, rookie Travis Wood. After seven innings, no score ... and no baserunners for the Phillies. Wood, in just his third major league s...

    Rob Neyer

    Today's links are sleepy. Today's links will see you in the morning. * You know I love my graphics, and it's hard to love them more than I love Kevin Dame's score trackers. I don't know if they add anything, but they sure are pretty to look at. ...

  10. Rookie awards and soph slumps

    Rob Neyer

    I like Beyond the Box Score's Tommy Bennett's take on the Rookie of the Year Award and the sophomore slump. His big finish: Because rookies are often unknown to the voters, they will select whichever one had the best performance in that one year. T...

  12. Rays score in Kazmir deal

    Rob Neyer

    Usually the PTBNL seems almost an afterthought. Not this time, though. A few days ago the Rays traded Scott Kazmir to the Angels and picked up a couple of middling prospects plus the proverbial "player to be named later." Today he was named...
