Real or Not? Bad blood brewing after Wednesday's bevy of brawls

I blame the cold weather.

And testosterone.

And the time-honored baseball tradition that goes back to the days of Old Hoss Radbourn and King Kelly: an eye for an eye, blood will have blood.

Arizona Diamondbacks' Deven Marrero loses home run after passing baserunner

Alex Avila tried falling on the sword, but first-base coach Dave McKay wouldn’t let him. The Diamondbacks had won a game in blowout fashion, beating the Dodgers for the fifth time in as many games this season, but a major topic in the postgame clubhouse was the home run that wasn’t.

Angels could be on cusp of a great rivalry with Astros

A rival evaluator who has seen the Los Angeles Angels recently raved about them in conversation here this weekend. "They've got the best defense in baseball," he said, and that was just the appetizer of what was a seven-course assessment.

Losing Corey Seager leaves Dodgers' season on the brink

With one of the richest, deepest, most efficient organizations in baseball, the Los Angeles Dodgers appeared to be impervious to the yin and yang of baseball cycles. Yet in the wake of Corey Seager’s season-ending arm injury, this team has all the earmarks of a club that might go off the rails.

Perfect story for the modern era. Yoenis Cespedes breaks him diamond necklace sliding into second. Tragic on so many levels.

Gives new meaning to The Diamond.

And I thought the Dodgers were having troubles, geesh.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Not surprised. I predicted weeks ago the the main break was a harbinger of the season to come.

They will need to move Seager to another position. I'd put him at first and Bellinger in center. Bellinger would be a gold glove center fielder.

Mariners' Ichiro Suzuki to enter front-office role for rest of '18 season

Roughly three hours before first pitch Thursday night, Ichiro Suzuki jogged to join the Seattle Mariners in the outfield, fully in uniform, black mitt in hand, prepping for another pregame routine of catching fly balls and hitting in the cage.
