Stephen Strasburg is hurt again

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015

On Tuesday night, Washington Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg left his start after just three innings thanks to a shoulder injury.

KYLE FARNSWORTH IS PLAYING FOOTBALL

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015

  Some of us take a bit longer than others to find our true calling in life. Perhaps Kyle Farnsworth fits that bill. Farnsworth, who spent 16 years in the Major Leagues pitching for 11 teams -- 10 if you count his two separate stints with the Braves as one team, but ...

Friday, April 17th, 2015

Much-ballyhooed prospect Kris Bryant is receiving his big-league call-up from the Cubs on Friday. Bryant is so ballyhooed, in fact, that he is making people remember that ballyhooed is a word.

Detroit Tigers off to historically torrid start

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

Even when someone finds themselves impossibly excited about the Chicago Cubs, it doesn't take very long for some damn fool thing to happen that reminds you that you're dealing with the Cubs. Regardless of their record this upcoming season -- it may well be a few games under .500 or a ...
