It usually takes someone more than a week on the job to become a homer, you know.

The most home runs ever before May 1, per : Albert Pujols and Alex Rodriguez with 14. Christian Yelich has 13. It's April 20. He's not Mike Trout. But calling Yelich the second-best player in baseball at this point is not a stretch.

During the benches-clearing incident, White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson called Royals pitcher Brad Keller a "weak-ass f---ing n-word," sources tell ESPN. Anderson, who was hit by a Keller pitch one at-bat after he hit a home run and flipped his bat, was suspended for one game.

A clarification: White Sox players were not asked specifically about Tim Anderson's use of the word that led to his ejection, per source, but umpires said that it was uttered within earshot of both teams.

With Domingo Germán and CC Sabathia fortifying the Yankees' rotation, there is increasing sense Gio Gonzalez plans on opting out of his deal tomorrow, sources tell ESPN. The Yankees would have 48 hours to add him to their roster, and if they don't, he'll become a free agent.

In his final at-bat, James Paxton threw six fastballs to Mookie Betts: 97, 97, 97, 99, 98, 97. This is the Paxton for whom the Yankees traded this winter. He looked like a guy who could start Game 1 of a playoff series. Eight shutout innings, 12 strikeouts, suffocated Boston.

If not for a hit by Evan Longoria, German Marquez would have a no-hitter* through eight innings for the Rockies. As it stands, his shutout against the Giants is still intact, and at only 88 pitches, he's in excellent shape. *Jinxes don't exist

If not for a hit-by-pitch, German Marquez would be perfect through seven innings for the Rockies. As it stands, his no-hitter against the Giants is still intact, and at only 76 pitches, he's in excellent shape.

I mean, I literally said big agencies do it, too. Not trying to be defensive here. What I wrote is just undeniably factual, and anyone who wants to argue otherwise is the one pushing the bullshit narrative.

I’m thrilled for him. He’s a good guy who was struggling and broke out. Think your criticism is just a tad misguided.
