Talk about change in baseball.
In light of concussions becoming a focal point across sports, Major League Baseball will convene today at the Winter Meetings in Florida to discuss the future of home plate collisions.
Tim Lincecum is staying put with the San Francisco Giants just as he hoped, reaching agreement Tuesday on a $35 million, two-year contract through the 2015 season.
Ryan Braun finally said it: He took performance-enhancing drugs.
Tuesday, when the two teams met to begin a three-game series at Nationals Park in what one San Francisco writer termed a "Disappointment-fest," neither team had a record above .500, and they were a combined 29 1/2 games out of first place.
Seven new All-Stars and still no Yasiel Puig.
Lincecum has won two Cy Young Awards and two World Series rings. Now he has something really remarkable — a no-hitter in which he threw a whopping career-high 148 pitches.
Tim Lincecum walked into the San Francisco Giants' clubhouse late Sunday morning and, yes, his right arm was still attached to his body.
The last time the Pittsburgh Pirates had five All-Stars, there was no designated hitter, baseballs were made of horsehide and the major leagues had 24 teams.
Bruce Bochy wasn't willing to go with the small sampling size and make Yasiel Puig an All-Star, though he might have been tempted to change his mind after watching the rookie sensation do a little bit of everything in helping the Dodgers to a win Sunday in San Francisco.
Lost in all the commotion about Yasiel Puig are the trickiest predicaments when it comes to the All-Star game.
Bailey became the third Reds pitcher with more than one no-hitter, joining Jim Maloney and Johnny Vander Meer — still the only big leaguer to toss two in a row. Bailey beat the Pirates 1-0 in Pittsburgh last Sept. 28 and got another 17 starts later.
Yasiel Puig probably won't finish the season hitting .436, though by now there's a growing number of people in Los Angeles who surely believe he can.
The San Francisco Giants put third baseman Pablo Sandoval on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday because of a strained left foot.
One by one, for three weeks already, players accompanied by their lawyers have been summoned to interviews as part of baseball's latest investigation into performance-enhancing drugs _ and the process is a long way from finished.
"I just want to try to eliminate any injuries, severe injuries," San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Wednesday. "Whether it's a concussion or broken ankle, whatever."
"Great news with the need that we have for pitching here and to get Tim, who was one of the highly sought pitchers out there. I couldn't be more thrilled," manager Bruce Bochy said. "It certainly helps fill a very important need for us as we try to get back on track here. ... For him to choose us, we're honored and I look very forward to working with him."
