    Spring training: Seattle 10, Angels 6
    Seattle 10, Angels 6 AT THE PLATE: Matt Long is a longshot to make the team, but he's making a good impression. The outfielder followed a four-hit game Monday with a three-hit, two runs-batted-in game and is batting .542 (13 for 24) this spring. Mike...

    Samardzija gives Cubs something, but what?

    Reader's Q&A: Paul Sullivan's Cubs mailbag
    Baseball has stats for everything. Has anybody figured out the Cubs' team ERA in the eighth inning? It's gotta be in the teens. Ken, Portland, Ore.   Not quite. The Cubs had a 5.42 ERA in eighth innings as of July 10, with an .818 OPS. Not good. But ERA-...

    Never underestimate Mike Ilitch's appetite for a championship. While the Tigers loved what they got from Anibal Sanchez a year ago, they didn't have $80 million budgeted to keep him off the free-agent market. But that's what Dave Dombrowski persuaded...
  • Cubs tradition: Throwing out ceremonial first discussion of fans' patience

    Cubs tradition: Throwing out ceremonial first discussion of fans' patience
    If you believe the 2013 Cubs were built to stink -- spoiler alert: they were -- then you had to like Edwin Jackson’s miserable start in Monday’s home opener and Starlin Castro’s aggravating last out that was a wind shift from turning...
  • Forget playing better, Cubs need to trade better

    Forget playing better, Cubs need to trade better
    Cubs manager Dale Sveum and team president Theo Epstein believe the Cubs will take a big step forward this season, and I’m thinking, I guess losing only 90 games would be a big step. Another 100 losses, however, is easily attainable, don’t...
  • Peter Bourjos runs Angels into comeback win over Twins

     
    Peter Bourjos led off the ninth inning with a triple and scored on Maicer Izturis' line-drive single, capping a furious comeback that lifted the Angels to a 6-5 victory over the Twins at Target Field. Bourjos, who also made three......
  • Howie Kendrick not in Angels' lineup ... again

     
    Howie Kendrick has been the Angels' most consistent hitter for average this season, batting .299 with eight home runs, 25 doubles and a team-leading 55 runs, but the second baseman was not in the lineup Wednesday night for the game......
  • Tigers Win Back and Forth Game With Twins 9-7

    Tigers Win Back and Forth Game With Twins 9-7
    Brandon Inge's run-scoring triple in the top of the ninth inning proved to be the difference, as the Tigers outlasted the Minnesota Twins, 9-7, to sweep a brief two-game set at Target Field. Tied at 7-7, Detroit pushed two across in the top of the ninth...
