An Improbable Win

It’s not often that Tim Lincecum gets knocked out in the 5th inning, or gives up 6 ER. The last time he gave up 6 ER or more was September 23, 2008, when he went 4 1/3 innings. That game, just ...

Rogearvin’s Day in Pictures

You can call him Roger, Bernie, or as I prefer, Rogearvin. Whatever it is, he had one heck of a day yesterday. For a guy who isn’t supposed to hit with power, this may go down as the most succe...

Why Yesterday’s Win Was Important

Every win is important, that’s why. They total them up at the end, and the team with the most wins usually ends up going to the playoffs. Other than that, however, it was important for the bull...

The Best Record in the Majors

What pitcher has the best record in the majors? You probably figure, since I’m asking, that it’s a Nats’ pitcher. And it is, Tyler Clippard is sitting at 6-0, which beats the starte...
