MIAMI -- Until the final days of a busy offseason the Marlins remain active in their search for additional depth. The latest pickup is Jeff Baker, who offers flexibility at a number of positions. From the Fish Pond... "Baker's two-year, $3.7 million deal will be announced at the completion of his physical examination. Adding Baker creates even more competition for roster spots when Spring Training gets underway on Feb. 16 at the Roger Dean Stadium complex in Jupiter, Fla. All the moves over the past few months will give the team a new look, as well as give manager Mike Redmond, his staff and the front office plenty to thinking about in Spring Training. The Marlins are expected to carry 13 position players and 12 pitchers. Here is a look at how the competition for position players is shaping up: Catcher: Jarrod Saltalamacchia, the club's top offseason pickup, will be the starting catcher. The veteran, who won a World Series title with the Red Sox, is a switch-hitter who will bat somewhere in the middle of ...
MLB Network did a Prime 9 of the most lopsided trades involving current players. The Braves were involved of 3 of those 9 trades- coming out on the losing end of 2 of those trades. One of John Schuerholz's better trades and 2 of his worst ever. Braves got Tim Hudson from A's for Juan Cruz, Dan Meyer and Charles Thomas. Braves traded away Adam Wainwright, Jason Marquis, and Ray King for 1 season of JD Drew and Eli Marrero. Braves traded away Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Elvis Andrus, Neftali Feliz, Matt Harrison, and Beau Jones for 1 year of Mark Teixeira and 2 months of Ron Mahay.
Things are just so hard for me right now, and I honestly don't know what to do about it. I keep thinking that things will get easier, but they never do and every day my decisions seem to be harder than the last. Because, I mean... do I order a Miami Marlins jersey so I can support Jarrod Saltalamacchia in the upcoming season? Is that a betrayal to my beloved Boston Red Sox? Or can I just continue to wear my Saltalamacchia Red Sox jerseys and cover both bases? Will Saltalamacchia think that I've abandoned him by living in the past if I don't get his Marlin's jersey? Will the Red Sox think I'm betraying them if I get one and wear it? Will wearing a Marlin's jersey cause a rip in space-time that makes it so that the Red Sox won't win the 2014 World Series? And what about those Marlin colors? Orange? I don't look good in orange! Do Pittsburgh Pirates fans feel the same way about Garrett Jones going to Miami than I do about Saltalamacchia going to Miami? Not that Jones is any kind of mind-blowing as a player.. ...

The Texas Rangers are negotiating with free-agent catcher J.P. Arencibia on a deal that would make him the team's backup catcher, a source confirmed late Thursday night. Arencibia, who turns 28 in January, was nontendered by the Toronto Blue Jays earlier this week, becoming a free agent. The Rangers had expressed interest in Arencibia even before he was nontendered, liking his power. In 2013, Arencibia hit just .194 and posted a .227 on-base percentage, which would have been the lowest in the majors had he qualified. Despite the low average, Arencibia still managed 21 homers (second among all catchers) and 55 RBIs. Perhaps going to Rangers Ballpark in Arlington could help the right-handed hitter's power numbers even more. Arencibia struck out 148 times and walked just 18 times. But the power has been fairly consistent. He's averaged 20 homers in his three full big-league seasons after showing power in the minors, as well. The Rangers signed Geovany Soto earlier this offseason and named him the primary cat ...

Dear Salty, On Sunday July 21, 2013 we went and saw a Red Sox vs Yankees game at Fenway. Before the game, you were warming up outside the bullpen, where our seats were. Lauren took me down to see you warm up. When I got close enough, I yelled SALTY I LOVE YOU! And to my surprise, you turned around and waved to me!!! I immediately started laughing and crying at the same time. That one little wave made you become my favorite player on the Red Sox!! But now ur not with Boston anymore. Your with Florida now, and I cried like a baby when I found out. You will always be my favorite catcher and Boston will miss you and Ellsbury so much. Stay Boston Strong. I love you Jarrod Saltalamacchia! Love, Jenn

It's too bad J.P. Arencibia struggled trying to find his place with the Jays and maybe Anflopoulos should have gone after a more seasoned catchers as in AJ Pierzynski, or Jarrod Saltalamacchia. That's the thing with Anflopoulos, its always like he's the last to know. Good luck to JP Arencibia, I hope he makes his mark with another MLB team.
I can't believe Jarrod Saltalamacchia signed a three year deal with Marlins. Who in the heck would want to play for the Marlins after the stuff they have pulled in recent years?
For a minute, forget about the fact that Jarrod Saltalamacchia is gone. It's done! What do you think about A.J. Pierzynski and the terms of his 1-year, $8.25 M deal with the Red Sox?
This pretty much sums up my feeling of this years Mariners' offseason: "The Mariners have taken their sweet time this offseason, and they're starting to get burned. The past 24 hours has seen an insane amount of action, with the A's making several trades bagging Luke Gregerson, Jim Johnson, and Craig Gentry, Doug Fister being shipped to the Nationals, Dexter Fowler being dealt to the Astros, Heath Bell and Ryan Hanigan moving to the Rays in a three-way deal, Justin Morneau closing in with the Rockies, and Carlos Beltran entertaining a three-year offer that now appears like it might be from the Royals. The Tigers signed Joe Nathan, the Dodgers are close with Brian Wilson, Jarrod Saltalamacchia is joining the Marlins, A.J. Pierzynski finalized a deal with the Red Sox The Mariners...signed Willie Bloomquist." And this doesn't even mention Ellsbury going to the Yankees...
A Palm Beach County native, Jarrod Saltalamacchia is one of the top catchers available in free agency. According to an industry source, the Marlins have made an offer to the offensive-minded switch-hitting backstop.
Alex Speier at reports that, according to one industry source, the Red Sox and Jarrod Saltalamacchia talked about structuring a two-year deal that featured incentives that would allow it to top out around $18 million. Such a deal could have offered the 28-year-old a higher average annual value than the three-year, $21 million deal to which he ended up agreeing with the Marlins. Yet Saltalamacchia chose a three-year deal instead. He could have been a free agent again in just two years and received another contract that likely would have paid him more than the $7 million average annual salary he'll get from Miami. Seems like a foolish decision. At the least, it was a strange decision. Now Salty has to play for the lowly Marlins instead of the Red Sox.

Okay really we win the World Series, and then we let Jacoby Ellsbury go, and then we let Jarrod Saltalamacchia go down to Miami??? I'de like to know why we are just letting all of our talent go.Red Sox nation needs some answers
I happen to think that loosen Jacoby Ellsbury to that pin strip team isn't such a bad thing. Happen to like that deal a lot! I am ALSO very happy that Jarrod Saltalamacchia is no longer a Redsox! :)
Hey Red Sox, I see that in addition to losing Jacoby Ellsbury, you are also willing to pass on Jarrod Saltalamacchia (who I really like) so that you can sign AJ Pierzynski (who I can't stand). I personally think the Red Sox deserve AJ Pierzynski so good luck with that.
Reports indicate that Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who inked a 3 year $21 million deal with the Marlins yesterday, had an offer from the Sox that topped out at 2 years and $18 million. Best wishes in Miami, Salty.
From this day forward Ruin Tomorrow is my new name for the Phillies GM because all Ruben Amaro has done this off season to improve his 16 games under 500 team is sign 36 year old Marlon Byrd and 34 year old Carlos Ruiz as free agents along with trading Eric Kratz to Toronto for a right handed pitcher Brad Lincoln with a four year career ERA of 4.66. Meanwhile the Nats traded for Doug Fister, the Rangers traded for Prince Fielder, and the Angels got David Freese from the Cardinals. Free agent signings have Jacoby Ellsbury and Brian McCann going to the Yankees, Jarrod Saltalamacchia to the Marlins, while A J Pierzynski just signed with Boston and Carlos Beltran rumored to be joining him shortly. Yeah Ruin keep fine tuning that under 500 team. You have been a batboy, player, and now GM for the Phillies and after next year I predict you'll be in the Phillie Phanatics costume.
The Miami Marlins have agreed to terms with C Jarrod Saltalamacchia on 3 year deal, worth 21 million dollars.
Via Ken Rosenthal: Why are the Orioles the only team dumping salary? The industry is flush with cash, and the Athletics are not the only low-payroll team showing surprising aggressiveness. The Marlins signed free-agent catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia for $21 million. The Royals could spend more than twice that on free agent Carlos Beltran. The Astros landed Dexter Fowler and earlier bid on free-agent starting pitchers such as Phil Hughes and right-hander Josh Johnson. Want more? The Padres’ payroll will be in the mid-$80 million range, according to one rival club’s estimate. The Twins spent a combined $73 million on Hughes and Ricky Nolasco. And yet, the Orioles dumped Johnson because they did not want to pay him $10 million-plus in arbitration. GM Dan Duquette told reporters that the trade was “really about the allocation of resources.” Fair enough; the wisdom of paying Johnson such a large sum remains to be seen. But the Orioles, while facing payroll issues that I outlined in an earlier column, ca ...
The Yankees signed OF Jacoby Ellsbury and 2B Kelly Johnson; the Rockies signed Justin Morneau; the Red Sox signed C A.J. Pierzynski; the Phillies traded for RHP Brad Lincoln and signed C Wil Nieves; the Marlins signed Jarrod Saltalamacchia; the Tigers signed closer Joe Nathan; the Rays acquired C Ryan Hanigan from the Reds and Heath Bell from Arizona; the A’s sent OF Seth Smith to the Padres for reliever Luke Gregerson; and the Rockies traded outfielder Dexter Fowler to the Astros WOW!!!
So Jacoby Ellsbury leaves the Redsox to sign a 7 year contract with the Yankees worth 153 million dollars..greedy much ...just remember Ellsbury .Boston made you!!! And Jarrod Saltalamacchia signs a 23 million dollar deal with the Seattle Mariners.. *** !
News : Green Bay Packers aren't ruling out QB Aaron Rodgers for Sunday's game (He is out with a collarbone injury), Detroit Red Wings player Henrik Zetterberg will be out at least 2 weeks with back injury, Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia signed a 3 year contract worth $21M with the Miami Marlins and Jacoby Ellsbury has signed a 7 year contract worth $153M with the NY Yankees
Also, Red Sox fans, Jarrod Saltalamacchia is now a Marlin. AJ Pierzynski is now in platoon with David Ross.
Johnny Damon. Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Jacoby Ellbury. Seems like all the Boston defections begin with the letter J. Makes all started with Judas.
Dear Red Sox fans: I know. Jacoby Ellsbury signed with the hated Yankees. Your center fielder will now be playing for your chief rival. I get it - that kinda pisses you off - but please, stop with the "money talks" nonsense. It's not as though every player that puts on a Boston uniform is a volunteer who donates his time to the cause. Anyway, Jarrod Saltalamacchia signed with the Marlins because they offered him more money than Boston. Is Salty on the "dead to me" list, or is consistency too much to ask?
I wonder if Jeffrey Loria will dip into the pockets to put Jarrod Saltalamacchia's full name on the back of his jersey?
Rapid fire news: Marlins add Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Astros traded Brandon Barnes (OF) and Jordan Lyles (RP) to the Rockies for Dexter Fowler (OF), A's traded Seth Smith (OF) to the Padres for Luke Gregorson (RP) and acquired Jim Johnson (Co-leader in ML in saves. Oh, and they also signed Scott Kazmir) from Baltimore for Jemile Weeks (IF) and a future player, Nats acquired Doug Fister in a trade with Detroit for Steve Lombardozzi (IF, and Detroit picked up Joe Nathan) Ian Krol (LHP) and a minor leaguer, Michael Choice (OAK, look out for him!) is headed to Texas in a trade which included Craig Gentry in a 4 player deal, Rays get Ryan Hanigan and Heath Bell in a 3 team deal involving the Reds and Padres, Brian Wilson is returning to the Dodgers, AJ Pierzynski is now a Boston Red Sox.
Between bizarre (smart and stupid) trades and some big money and names being moved, this MLB offseason has been eventful. Brian McCann and Jacoby Ellsbury to the Yanks, Tim Hudson to the Giants, the blockbuster Prince Fielder and Ian Kinsler trade, Doug Fister to the Nats, Dexter Fowler to the Astros, Jim Johnson to the A's (thanks for the few good years), Joe Nathan to the Tigers, AJ Pierzynski to the Red Sox, Dan Haren to the Dodgers (huge steal for them), Jarrod Saltalamacchia to the Marlins, Scott Kazmir to the Indians, Johnny Peralta (Mr. Steroids) goes to Cardinals for a lot of money, Ricky Nolasco and Phil Hughes to the Twins, and many more. And I'm just sitting here, as an Orioles fan, waiting on Dan Duquette to make some moves other than to get rid of Johnson which we knew would happen -_-

According to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the Marlins recently made an offer to free agent catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, though the specifics aren’t known. CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reported last week that the Red Sox offered a two-year deal to Saltalamacchia, but it’s apparently not good enough. Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe has heard from two sources that it’s “unlikely” he’ll be back with Boston next season. The Twins are said to be interested in Saltalamacchia and may be more aggressive in their bidding than Miami. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald hears that a decision could come as soon as the early part of this week.
BOSTON -- As the best free-agent catcher available, Jarrod Saltalamacchia can pretty much write his own ticket, right? Not exactly. Even as the list of available backstops dwindles, the Red Sox are...
Brian McCann off market, what now for Jarrod Saltalamacchia? via Lavarnway gets no respect at all
With Brian McCann off the market, what now for Jarrod Saltalamacchia?
The Yankees have a five-year, $85 million deal in place with catcher Brian McCann. The deal includes a vesting option for a sixth season worth $15 million and a full no-trade clause. The Rangers and Rockies were players for McCann until the Yankees wrapped him up. For the Yankees, McCann will be a significant upgrade over Chris Stewart and Austin Romine. McCann, who turns 30 in February, hit .256 with a .796 OPS last season. The Red Sox were involved with the negotiations for McCann but did not approach that level of commitment according to major league sources. With Carlos Ruiz and McCann off the market, the Sox still have plentiful options for a catcher. They remain engaged with Jarrod Saltalamacchia, their primary catcher last season and now a free agent. Saltalamacchia is seeking a three-year contract but the Red Sox would prefer two. A.J. Pierzynski and Dioner Navarro also are free agents. Or they could pursue a trade, something general manager Ben Cherington has hinted at. That McCann had a deal wit ...
Free agent outfielder Carlos Beltran is being courted by many teams this off-season, several of which seem to be residents of the same division. According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, the New York Yankees, Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox are all engaged in talks with Beltran's camp. Which team has the edge? It may the Red Sox, whose negotiations the Boston Herald's Scott Glauber has described as " serious dialogue." Beltran is believed to be seeking a three-year deal, and the first team willing to give that "extra year" to him may end up with a signed contract. Of course, there's always a chance that the Red Sox are only talking to Beltran in order to drive up his price. After all, Boston still hasn't given up on the possibility of bringing back any or all of their free agents: Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli, Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Stephen Drew. The more money a team like the Yankees has to spend on Beltran leaves them less likely to outbid the Red Sox for their "own players" and, as Glauber ...

The Minnesota Twins made the announcement that All-Star catcher Joe Mauer will move to first base next season on Monday, and while it’s a good move for Mauer’s long-term health signing a veteran catcher will now go on the team’s offseason checklist. Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN-Twin Cities first reported the team to have interest in Jarrod Saltalamacchia, but could a familiar face return to the Twins in 2014? Wolfson also reported that the Twins have expressed interest in A.J. Pierzynski, who was drafted by Minnesota in 1994 and spent his first six seasons with the team. Is the soon-to-be 37-year old veteran catcher a good fit?

Jarrod Saltalamacchia free agency: No qualifying offer a mistake
domain names
MLB-With the 2013 World Series title under their collective belts, the real off-season work begins for the Boston Red Sox. They picked up staff ace Jon Lester's $13M option for next year and made qualifying offers to first baseman Mike Napoli, centerfielder Jacoby Ellsbury and shortstop Stephen Drew. They did not make a qualifying offer to catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, meaning he will go to free agency.
Red Sox fans converge on city for World Series victory parade. Horns blared, confetti flew through the air, and hundreds of thousands of jubilant and grateful Red Sox fans screamed and waved along the route today as the team’s World Series parade rolled through the streets. The Olde Towne Team, whose improbable championship run lifted the spirits of a region rattled by the Boston Marathon bombings, boarded a herd of amphibious duck boats for a 3.8-mile ride through city streets that was to conclude with a splash — with the boats taking a victory lap in the Charles River. The “rolling rally” of 25 duck boats began at storied Fenway Park and was expected to pass such landmarks as Boston Common and City Hall. It also passed a more somber site — the place near the Marathon finish line where twin bombs went off on April 15, killing three people and injuring more than 260. The duck boats stopped at the site and players Jonny Gomes and Jarrod Saltalamacchia placed the World Series trophy on the finish ...
As of the World Series ending, SS Stephen Drew, OF Jacoby Ellsbury, RHP Joel Hanrahan, 1B Mike Napoli, and C Jarrod Saltalamacchia became free agents. The Red Sox retain their rights until Nov. 5, at which point they can sign with any team. The Red Sox hold 2014 contract options on two players: LHP Jon Lester for $13 million (or a $250,000 buyout) and LHP Matt Thornton for $6 million (or a $1 million buyout). Those decisions are expected by 11:59 p.m. on Saturday. The Red Sox also have decisions to make on arbitration-eligible players. That group includes RHP Andrew Bailey, LHP Andrew Miller, LHP Franklin Morales and 1B-OF Mike Carp.

ST. LOUIS -- Any description of what David Ortiz has accomplished in the World Series would understate matters. What Koji Uehara has been to hitters, that's what Ortiz has become to pitchers in carrying the Red Sox within a win of a World Series title. "There are no really words for it," Jarrod Saltalamacchia said. "It's amazing." When Ortiz strides into the batter's box these days, it's a sight to behold. "It's like, 'Hang on for the ride because something special is going to happen,'" bench coach Torey Lovullo said. "He's locked in. He's seeing the ball. No matter what type of pitch it is, he's making a really good, aggressive pass. It's what every hitter works hard to get to. He's locked in at the right time." "At this point, it's pretty tough not to sit in the on-deck circle and be a spectator," Jonny Gomes said. "This guy, he's making this game seem pretty easy." "What planet is that guy from?" David Ross said. Coming into Game Five, the word was that St. Louis had spent too much trying to throw fast ...
"Tigers need to look at 'jettisoning Alex Avila in favor of free agents Brian McCann or Jarrod Saltalamacchia.'" OH REALLY.
I know this probably isn't the time for reason, but I'm here to keep it REAL Red Sox fans. 1) St. Louis' pitcher tonight is ehhh...average. We will win tonight's game, so there's still a 50% chance we could win this series. 2) Stephen Drew, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Matt Thornton.3 wastes of space, will be ancient history next year. I know NO ONE wants to hear this right now, but simply playing Middlebrooks, Bogaerts & Lavarnway all year makes this team 25% better. It's important to remember...this team has way overachieved. 3) St Louis has shown Ben Cherington what he needs: A flame thrower for the pen, a flame throwing starter and a bopper that can hit for average too
IF ONLY THIS WORKED IN POLITICS! Obstruction call gives Cards win in WS Game 3 Posted Sunday, October 27, 2013 --- 2:54 a.m. ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Third baseman Will Middlebrooks tripped Allen Craig for a game-ending obstruction call on Jon Jay's ninth-inning grounder, giving the St. Louis Cardinals a bizarre 5-4 win over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night and a 2-1 World Series lead. Boston had tied the score with two runs in the eighth, and Yadier Molina singled with one out in the ninth off loser Brandon Workman. Allen Craig pinch hit and lined Koji Uehara's first pitch down the left-field line for a double that put runners on second and third. With the infield in, Jon Jay hit a grounder to diving second baseman Dustin Pedroia. He threw home to catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who tagged out the sliding Molina. Saltamacchia threw offline past third, and Middlebrooks, with his stomach on the field, raised both legs and tripped Craig. Third base umpire Jim Joyce immediately signaled obstruction, and even tho ...
After six innings, it's all tied 2-2 at Busch. The Cards struck early when Matt Holliday and Yadier Molina hit a pair of RBI singles to take a 2-0 lead. Daniel Nava tied it up in the sixth with an RBI single off of Seth Maness. Joe Kelly finished his outing going 5.1 innings while allowing two runs on two hits while striking out six. The Red Sox will send up Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Stephen Drew and the pitcher's spot to start the seventh.
Perfectly Logical Reasons to Hate Everyone on the Red Sox by John Lackey - Overpaid jerk who divorced his wife when she had breast cancer. Dustin Pedroia - There isn’t a more punchable human being on the planet than Dustin Pedroia. David Ortiz - Roider. Clay Buchholz - Meth head. Jarrod Saltalamacchia - Stupid name. Xander Bogaerts - Even stupider name. Stephen Drew - His brother was universally loathed. There’s little reason to think he’s any better. Jonny Gomes - Just look at him. Jacoby Ellsbury - In seven MLB seasons, he has one season in which he hit 32 Home Runs, and then not another one in which he hit more than 9. NOT SUSPICIOUS AT ALL. Ryan Dempster – He threw at A-Rod earlier this year because he thinks he’s the Baseball Police. He’ll likely sign his next contract with the Cardinals or Braves. Jake Peavy - Wasn’t good enough to make the White Sox contenders so he accepted a trade to the Red Sox. DISLOYAL BANDWAGONER. Mike Napoli - Of all the stupid beards — LOL! ...
Cardinal Nation: Rosenthal ditched his power breaking-ball assortment to throw 11 straight heaters. You want efficient? How's this for efficient? He came in with fastballs of 96, 97, 97 and 98 mph to get Jonny Gomes looking. He threw heaters of 97, 98 and 98 to set down Jarrod Saltalamacchia swinging. And then he pumped fastballs of 95, 97, 98 and 99 to whiff Daniel Nava and earn a congratulatory handshake from catcher Yadier Molina. Do we like heat? steve
berita hari ini : Victorino's grand slam sends Red Sox to Series - Chicago Tribune BOSTON — A celebration of beer and fried chicken was in order Saturday night at Fenway Park when the Red Sox pulled off another late-inning comeback in Game 6 of the American League Championship Series. Shane Victorino's seventh-inning grand slam off Tigers reliever Jose Veras erased a one-run deficit and led the Red Sox to a 5-2 victory, launching Boston into its third World Series since 2004. Boston Strong? Absolutely. "When you get attacked on your home turf like that, it's a feeling of pride here," catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia said, referring to the terrorist bombing at the Boston Marathon. "Everything that 'Boston Strong' says represents exactly what this city is about." After two near-miss Home Runs fell inches short, by Dustin Pedroia in the third and Jonny Gomes in the seventh, Victorino launched an 0-2 pitch from Veras into the Green Monster seats, turning the ballpark upside-down. The Red Sox will meet the Card ...
Red Sox are going to the World Series with Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Mike Napoli leading the way. Two guys Jon Daniels didn't think were worth keeping around. Now with Ryan out of the picture Daniels can ruin any hopes of Ranger success.

In my opinion Jarrod Saltalamacchia deserves to win MVP. Dude put in work this season.
I learned something new tonight, Cathey Blackburn Shields pointed out Jarrod Saltalamacchia yellow nail polish and we were curious about it. She googled it and found out a Yankee catcher started wearing polish a few years ago because it helps the pitcher read the signals. It caught on. The Yankees are good for something. And yes, I am slow to catch on.

For my Rangers friends... Here's the latest out of Arlington... The Rangers expect Joe Nathan to void their $9.5MM club option on his services for 2014 and the club will consider other internal closing options,'s T.R. Sullivan reports. While Daniels didn't fully close the door on re-signing Nathan, his recent comments about not committing major dollars to the bullpen seems to hint that Texas could move on from the veteran closer. MLBTR's Tim Dierkes recently profiled Nathan's free agency case and predicted Nathan would fetch a deal in the two-year, $26MM range this offseason. Also from Sullivan, he opines that former Rangers Mike Napoli and Jarrod Saltalamacchia could be targeted for returns to the club. Texas is looking for a right-handed bat and for a new catcher this offseason.

That's 7pm OUR TIME! (Fox TV) Red Sox @ Tigers Series knotted at 2 -2. Liquor Cabinet - Bay St. Louis Going into Game 4 of the American League Championship Series, it looked like the tight, intense matchup between the Red Sox and Tigers would continue to be all about pitching. Then again, it's October in southern Michigan and New England. The leaves are changing, the autumn winds are shifting, and with every inning of these games, the script is being ad-libbed by wily managers and played out in real time by actors with bats and gloves in their hands. Wednesday at Comerica Park brought what has been an ALCS outlier: a five-run second-inning outburst by the Tigers, a 7-3 win, and a clean series slate: we're at 2-2 now, with a guarantee of a trip back to Fenway Park for at least a Game 6, and who knows what else to expect in a series that's still impossible to predict. Thursday night's Game 5, which will be broadcast on FOX at 8 p.m. ET, will offer an anticipated rematch between Game 1's brilliant starters, ...

Baseball people--this has been on my mind for a bit. In Game 2 of the ALDS between the Boston Red Sox and the Detroit Tigers, in the 9th inning after Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli reached third, why on Earth didn't Tigers Manager Jim Leyland intentionally walk Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Stephen Drew to set up the force play at any base with number nine hitter Will Middlebrooks coming up? I have been thinking about this all day and cannot understand why at least Saltalamacchia wasn't given a free pass. Statistically, it makes zero sense. Anyone able to shed more light/insight? I MUST KNOW.
OK - this is for Red Sox fans. Can someone explain to my why Jarrod Saltalamacchia has Richard Simmons' hair in mullet form?

Hyun-Jin Ryu went 7.0 innings for the Dodgers, giving up just 3 hits with no runs, a walk and 4 strikeouts. Hanley Ramirez, playing with a broken rib, went 2-4 with an RBI, in a real "heroic" performance. Yadier Puig and Adrian Gonzales had the other 2 RBI's for the Dodgers. Adam Wainwright couldn't exactly repeat the game-winning performance in his division series outing, going 7 innings, giving up 2 runs on 6 hits, and 5 strikeouts. Game 4 is tonight at 8:07. *Magic In Boston: Max Scherzer was pitching a no-hitter through 5 and 2/3 innings, when Shane Victorino got the first hit for the Sox. He would eventually score a run to cut the lead to 5-1. The Tigers had a huge 5th inning with Home Runs from Cabrera and Avila putting up all of their runs then. The score was stagnant, until the 8th i ...
Already a classic, ALCS heads west to Detroit Lackey squares off with Verlander with series knotted at 1-1 By Doug Miller / | 10/14/2013 6:49 PM ET Comments (192) video thumbnail ALCS Gm3: Lackey, Verlander lock horns in ALCS Game 3 DETROIT -- Game 1 was crazy and Game 2 was even crazier, so if the American League Championship Series keeps this up, there's no telling what kind of full-on insanity might take place on Tuesday afternoon in Game 3 at Comerica Park. A perfect game, maybe? A team coming back from a 12-run deficit? A position player hitting a go-ahead Home Run in the 24th inning and then pitching the 25th for the save? Hey, don't roll your eyes. There's simply no telling the direction in which this thing is headed other than about 700 miles west of Boston to Detroit, where this knotted-up insta-classic will resume at 4 p.m. ET on FOX, with Detroit's Justin Verlander going against Boston's John Lackey. Monday's Game 2 in Fenway Park looked like a foregone conclusion after seven innings. M ...

BOSTON 6, DETROIT 5
The Sox slept in their own beds after last night's 6-5 victory. The team flew here late this morning. This city, like Boston, is abuzz about Game 2. "Slammed" said the headline on the front of the Detroit Free Press. David Ortiz is the talk of baseball today thanks to his grand slam in the eighth inning. But have you stopped to consider the run that actually won the game? Talk about a series of unusual events: • Jonny Gomes broke his bat on a Rick Porcello fastball and reached on an infield single. • Jose Iglesias, a defensive wizard, made an ill-advised throw to first base that handcuffed Prince Fielder and got by him for an error. The ball went out of play and Gomes was awarded second base. Fielder clearly should have stopped the ball. The entire scope of the inning changes with Gomes on second. (As a side note, Gomes is so well-regarded for his base running that the Sox did not run Quintin Berry for him.) • Jarrod Saltalamacchia nearly fouled out to Fielder along the first base stands, but Fielde ...

Image of the Day Papi Grande Over the last ten year, nobody has had more big hits in the postseason than Boston Red Sox Designated Hitter. On Sunday Night he may have delivered one of the biggest an eighth inning Grand Slam that tied the game as the Red Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 6-5 to even the ALCS at a game apiece. Up to that point the Sox were being handcuffed by Tigers, pitching first nearly being no hit in Game 1, and then trailing 5-0 with no hits until the sixth inning of Game 2. The Red Sox got a break, when Max Scherzer left the game after dominating for seven innings, allowing one run on two hits, while striking out 13. The Red Sox loaded the bases with two outs in the eighth as Closer Joaquin Benoit as Ortiz hit his first pitch into the bullpen. The Sox would win in the ninth inning on a single by Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
As a trained observer of the issues of the day, I feel compelled to point out that with each passing game, Red Sox Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia is starting to look more and more like Larry from the Three Stooges!
