What You Need to Know: The Grudge
by
Stacey Gotsulias

<< Previous Column Entries No More Column Entries

A slugfest at Wrigley Field, Patrick Corbin on fire, Wild Card wildness, and Adam Engel goes very, very far.

The Thursday Takeaway

Read the full article...

Edwin Diaz was off, Aaron Judge was on, Mike Matheny got mad, and Yasiel Puig kept the Dodgers winning.

The Wednesday Takeaway

Read the full article...

Rookies look good for the Mets, Aroldis Chapman looks bad for the Yankees, Giancarlo Stanton hits no. 44, and Miguel Sano does his Brooks Robinson impression.

The Tuesday Takeaway

Read the full article...

Chad Bettis returns from cancer treatment with seven shutout innings, Rafael Devers keeps doing remarkable things, and Giancarlo Stanton breaks a Marlins record.

The Monday Takeaway

“Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball is pretty good, too.” - Yogi Berra

Read the full article...

Chris Rowley makes his historic MLB debut, Bryce Harper takes a scary tumble, and Giancarlo Stanton rakes his 42nd home run of the year.

The Weekend Takeaway

Try as they might, the Blue Jays just can’t retain a healthy pitching staff. Bo Schultz underwent season-ending Tommy John surgery in March, Aaron Sanchez was felled by a blister on his pitching hand, Cesar Valdez suffered a bout of right shoulder inflammation, and a comebacker spoiled Taylor Cole’s major-league debut with a right toe fracture.

Read the full article...

Mike Trout is MIKE TROUT, Yoan Moncada is becoming YOAN MONCADA very quickly, and the Dodgers secure .500.

The Thursday Takeaway

Read the full article...

Age is merely a construct, Kyle Seager is Corey's brother, and Big Sexy is a helluva athlete.

The Wednesday Takeaway

Here’s a fun little game. Rank these five pitchers by age, from youngest to oldest: Chris Archer, Martin Perez, Kevin Gausman, Jimmy Nelson, Marcus Stroman. Here, I’ll give you a second to mentally throw together a quick list.

Read the full article...

Mike Trout does Mike Trout things on his birthday, Bryce Harper keeps pace, Javier Baez does it the hard way, and Andrew McCutchen lays out.

The Monday Takeaway

Read the full article...

The Dodgers give the 1912 Giants a run for their money, Jacob deGrom swipes a base, Bartolo Colon tosses a complete game, and Rob Refsnyder uses evasive maneuvers to take down the Astros.

The Weekend Takeaway

The Dodgers are sitting on the cusp of their 80th win following a masterful sweep of the Mets this weekend, and you’d need a working time machine to find a team with a better 50-game stretch behind them.

Read the full article...

Hansel Robles' very bad day, bobsledding bullpens, Klubot Ks, and three for Paul Goldschmidt.

The Thursday Takeaway

Read the full article...

Somehow the Braves have the Dodgers' number, Jeremy Hellickson had a great Orioles debut, Dellin Betances was immaculate, and Joey Gallo did what he does best.

The Wednesday Takeaway

Read the full article...

Gio Gonzalez took a no-hitter into the ninth inning, Doug Fister got the job done, Jake Marisnick went deep twice, and Yoan Moncada had a scary collision.

The Monday Takeaway

There’s an old baseball quote that offers sage advice to pitchers who struggle to grasp their fleeting success. To paraphrase: Five starts a year, you have your best stuff. Five starts a year, you have your worst stuff. What matters most is how you pitch in the 20 starts in between.
