“The Orioles are like every other team in the division–they’re flawed. Not fatally, because of the division they’re in, but they need an ace [pitcher] badly.”
Sometimes a team’s best players don’t make the All-Star team. Here are the American League’s mid-season team MVPs.
The Red Sox take a 3-2 lead back to Boston. Here are five things you missed from game 5.
I don’t necessarily think the Orioles needed to make a statement this weekend, but they certainly continue to do just that.
Jon Lester got into a major league spring training game for the first time this year, and his pitching line looked a bit better than he felt.
The St Louis Cardinals and Atlanta Braves are tied for the wild card in the National league, while the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays are tied for the wild card in the AL.
