The tater trots from April 28: Stanton's big weekend.

It's going to be a quick one today, so let's get right to the trots!

The tater trots for April 26. Big Papi hits another slow one, Carlos Beltran headlines a night of multi-home run games.

Pretty nice night for baseball last night. Not only did two players notch their first career home runs Friday night, four other players rounded the bases twice. And all of this while Anibal Sanchez was busy striking out 17 Braves batters!

The tater trots from April 25: a great Luis Valbuena quote, a bomb from Goldschmidt, Big Papi goes back to his old ways and Francisco Cervelli keeps his torrid pace up.

Nothing pleases me more than checking the box scores and seeing that David Ortiz has hit a home run. It's a glorious thing to have him back in our life, hitting dingers and trotting the bases.

Before it was a big league city, people were worried that Denver might be too snowy for Major League Baseball.

The Rockies this season have already had three games postponed due to snowy weather. They've played a split doubleheader where the game time temperature was 23 degrees—for the afternoon game! More than once already, the club has had their employees—including mascot Dinger!—out on the field for hours, trying to shovel all the snow away so that a game could be played without digging out any cross-country skies.

It's been exactly the kind of winter that Denver mayor Federico Pena was always afraid of.

The tater trots for April 24. Jordany Valdespin goes out in grand fashion.

I have to admit, it still feels a little strange every time I realize that the Astros are in the American League team now. I see them playing against the Mariners and I think to myself, "They're playing interleague again?" And then it hits me.

The tater trots for April 23: the Upton brothers have a night, Chris Heisey keeps sprinting.

I'm really enjoying this new experiment by Major League Baseball to start the season in January and hope that nobody notices. I don't know if the Rockies' employees who have had to shuffle snow off the field twice in the last week are enjoying it as much, but it's still interesting in a performance art kind of way.

A 1980 controversy reminds us how touchy the relationship between baseball and beer could be, even in the home of the Brewers.

The Milwaukee Brewers media guide gives only the briefest of mentions for how the club got its name:

1970: The team is renamed the 'Milwaukee Brewers' as a tribute to the city's long association with the brewing industry.

The tater trots for April 22: big time celebrations from Robinson Cano and Luis Valbuena, remarkable consistency from Ryan Roberts.

The tater trots for April 20, capped off by Daniel Nava's emotional home run at Fenway Park.

It was an emotional day in Boston that was capped in a near-storybook fashion. Let's get right to the trots.

A look at some of baseball's best moments found at MLB.com.

In an attempt to bring some positivity to your computer screens this week, I present to you a run-down of some of baseball's best moments, as found at MLB.com.

The tater trots for April 18: Todd Frazier does good, Yovani Gallardo goes yard, Francisco Cervelli speeds home.

Home Run of the Day: Todd Frazier, Cincinnati Reds - 22.18 seconds [video]
A home run in the later innings of an 11-1 rout are rarely worth talking about as the Home Run of the Day. In Cincinnati on Thursday, however, Todd Frazier's blast is very much worth celebrating. As C. Trent Rosecrans wrote for cincinnati.com, this home run was hit by special request for Reds batboy Teddy Kremer.

The tater trots for April 17: Jason Giambi's first Cleveland home run, Everth Cabrera says "me-ow!"
