Watch: Angel Pagan makes ridiculous home run-saving catch

Saturday, September 12th, 2015

It's rough being a fan of the San Diego Padres these days. In fact, it's a pain being a Padres fan at any time, and Friday night was no different. The San Francisco Giants ripped the Friars 9-1, but despite all the offense, the play of the game was a ...

Washington Nationals need to fire Matt Williams

No-no latest example of Jake Arrieta’s Cubs breakthrough

Monday, August 31st, 2015

No-hitters are random by nature (and not cause they hate ya). Hacky hurlers like Edwin Jackson, Bud Smith, Philip Humber and Bobo Holloman(!) have channeled that magic for a night while Hall of Famers like Greg Maddux and Pedro Martinez have not. The Cubs, long associated with ineptitude, managed to ...
