Tony La Russa
Major League Baseball appears set for a vast expansion of video review by umpires in 2014 and is examining whether all calls other than balls or strikes should be subject to instant replay.
Girardi took the unusual step Wednesday to help protect his left-handed heavy lineup against a Rockies bullpen filled with left-handed relievers.
If Shelby Miller reaches his potential, he’ll be just another superstar to come up through the Cardinals’ ranks.
Even dugouts and bullpens might not need that old landline soon. Can you hear me now?
By the time the yelling and screaming subsides sometime around the Friday’s regular season restart, you’ll think letting Matt Cain pitch the first three innings was something akin to Tony La Russa punching R.A. Dickey in the throat.
Owner of the best record in baseball, R.A. Dickey was hoping to become the first knuckleballer to start an All-Star game since Dutch Leonard in 1943. A 12-1 record wasn’t good enough.
In the year of Linsanity and Tebow-mania, Dickey has been one of the best stories in New York sports — not to mention MLB. But he won’t get the ball to start the All-Star game.
In a season with two extra playoff teams and a great deal of parity, virtually every franchise has hope heading into the season’s second half. That’s why you should care about Tuesday’s Midsummer Classic.
Tony La Russa has dropped the ball by not starting fan-favorite knuckleballer R.A. Dickey at the 2012 MLB All-Star Game.
Nerdy. Eccentric. Quirky. One thing’s for certain: At 37, years after most players’ careers have peaked, R.A. Dickey is finally reaching his pinnacle.
Dickey’s shaky outing Thursday night may give manager Tony La Russa, already worried about who will catch the Mets’ knuckleballer, reason to pass him over.
Despite his otherworldly statistics through the first half of the Major League season, Mets starting pitcher R.A. Dickey may not start for the National League in the All-Star Game.
When you are the best pitcher in baseball, deductive reasoning says you are also the best pitcher in the National League. When you are the best pitcher in the National League, you should start the All-Star Game.
Managers Terry Collins of the Mets and Ron Roenicke of the Brewers will serve as NL coaches for the All-Star game and managers Ned Yost of the Royals and Bob Melvin of the A’s will coach on the AL side.
One of the most recent St. Louis hurlers to make a name for himself is Jaime Garcia, who will be counted on to carry a big load in his third Major League season.
