Jose Abreu, the Rookie of the Year in waiting

The Angels come into today on an 8-game winning streak as each win brings them one step closer to a playoff birth. The remarkable thing is the distance they are putting between them and their opponents in both the games and the season. In the eight games, the Angels have won by a combined 41 points. […]

Aroldis Chapman is on his own level

Aroldis Chapman

A few weeks back I went on about Aroldis Chapman‘s consecutive appearances with a strikeout. He would finish with 49 straight games with a strikeout, 10 more than the previous record held by Hall of Famer Bruce Sutter. That streak has ended but the dominance of Chapman’s fastball remains.

Chris Tillman leading Orioles rotation into October

Chris Tillman

With a 9.5 game lead over the Yankees going into today, the Orioles are all but in as the AL East Champion. Without any true ace on the staff, the O’s will be looking to the hot-handed Chris Tillman to presume the role as the number one going into the ALDS. Tillman, 26, finds himself […]

Rangers Out of AL West

Last night Derek Holland took to the mound to become the 60th player to play for the Rangers this season, pushing the Rangers passed the 2002 Indians, the 2002 Padres, and the 2008 Padres to hold the major league record for most players to play in a single season. That would be the first of […]
