Posted on May 31, 2018, by Travis Pulver For a time, it looked like we might get some new blood in the NBA Finals this year. The Cleveland Cavaliers were not exactly playing well. To be fair, LeBron James has been playing well; the rest of the team—not so much. The Boston Celtics had a shot, […]

Posted on May 30, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Wednesday began with a great deal of optimism for the St. Louis Cardinals. The team’s top prospect Alex Reyes made his long-awaited return from Tommy John surgery. Reyes started off well, tossing four scoreless innings against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Posted on May 27, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine For the second time this season, the Chicago Cubs have placed Yu Darvish on the 10-day DL.

Posted on May 26, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine It’s not exactly trade season, but that usually doesn’t stop Seattle Mariners GM Jerry Dipoto from wheeling and dealing. Friday night, Dipoto and the Mariners acquired reliever Alex Colome and outfielder Denard Span from the Tampa Bay Rays. In exchange, the Rays have received pitching prospects Tommy […]

Posted on May 25, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine In a rather surprising move, the Boston Red Sox have parted ways with veteran slugger Hanley Ramirez. As expected, the Red Sox activated Dustin Pedroia from the DL on Friday. To make room for Pedroia on the active roster, the Red Sox designated Ramirez for assignment. The […]

Posted on May 24, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The Boston Red Sox have done all right for themselves these first 50 games of the season. Nearly one-third into the season, the Red Sox have the most wins in baseball. They also hold a lead, albeit a slim one, atop the AL East. On top of […]

Posted on May 24, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Major League Baseball has suspended Chicago White Sox catcher Welington Castillo for 80 games after he tested positive for a banned substance.
