TuesdoLinks: Say Cheese!

A great night for Wisconsonites

It was a good night in Wisconsin. Two of their favorite teams both scored big wins. After what happened for Boston on Sunday, the Dodgers need to wonder why they can’t get a night game for the Rams going tonight?

For Milwaukee, pitching was key on their way to a 4-0 victory and a 2-1 series lead. The Brewers staff held the Dodgers to 5 hits, no runs scored, and it was all led by our very own Jhoulys Chacin. And doesn’t Chacin just keep grinding the grits...

Angels wrap up first round of conversations with managerial candidates

We’re tracking all of the managerial hiring situations around the league with team-specific posts, and it’s time to introduce one for the Angels. Mike Scioscia just wrapped up a 19-year tenure with the organization that included a whopping ten-year, $50M contract — a managerial pact that’s still without compare. As of late last week, the Halos were wrapping up their first round of chats with potential candidates, as Jeff Fletcher of the Southern California News Group reported. At...

Angels reportedly giving extensive test to managerial candidates

The Los Angeles Angels have an unconventional way of testing potential managerial candidates as part of their interview process. According to Jon Morosi of MLB.com, the Angels are putting their potential managers through a two-hour written test featuring questions that cover all aspects of the job. This is the Angels’ first managerial search since the end of the 1999 season, as the now-departed Mike Scioscia left after this season. They’re obviously being thorough about it and putting a...

MondoLinks: All Knotted Up

Both LCS are now Best-Of-Five, and things get tense.

We had some big time baseball over the weekend. Catch up on the main points (well, prior to last night) here in this 60 second review...........

Last night, though, was the Astros at the Red Sox in the American League Cocky Series. And they had the full MLB stage to itself. Except in Boston. Boston fans were torn, because they had a decent NFL game going on at the same time. (In the end, the Red Sox almost won by the larger differential.)...

WeekEnd HaloLinks: Pennant Pushing

We kick off the LCS in each league, with a pennant on the line.

Aight! Let’s get back to this playoff baseball business! Wouldn’t it be nice for MLB to be clever enough to figure out how to not press the pause button in their playoff scheduling, so that we don’t forget where we left off or wander away to other things?

We have four games before I meet up with you again. One tonight, two Saturday, and one Sunday. But both are 7-game series so there shall be no urgency or panic before...

Report: Yankees expected to target Patrick Corbin in free agency

The New York Yankees are expected to target pitcher Patrick Corbin in free agency this offseason, according to a report. Fancred Sports’ Jon Heyman says the Yankees will make a play for Corbin. He also says the Yankees may consider bringing back lefties J.A. Happ and CC Sabathia. Sabathia, 38, will be a free agent, while Happ, who was acquired in a trade with Toronto, will also be a free agent. The Diamondbacks are expected to give Corbin a qualifying offer, which would attach draft pick...

Pipeline names Angels' Prospects of the Year

The Angels' rebuilt farm system is finally starting to bear fruit, as evidenced by the ascendance of third baseman Taylor Ward and right-hander Griffin Canning, who have been recognized by MLB Pipeline as the club's Hitting and Pitching Prospects of the Year, respectively.

Thor’slinks: Off Day for Playoffs

Open days in the post-season calendar keep me busy

You and I just got to this break in baseball. the MLB people in New York are apoplectic, I’m sure, since this respite while we wait a couple of days to restart the playoffs is bad for continuity. Viewers drift off, the writers get bored (and boring), and the narratives expire.

But imagine how the Brewers and their fans must feel? They last played on the 7th. It means they go a full 5 days between games. And they were blistering hot....

This was the Angels' top postseason moment

To kick off the first week of postseason play, this week we take a look at the greatest postseason moments of the division era. Even if your team isn't a postseason team, you can remember your great October moments … and if it is, you can dream of maybe having another one this month that's even better.

Cubs fans want to party like it’s 2002 - in reverse

Is Mike Scioscia the cure for the Cubbie Blues?

Every once in a while you see some fun stuff on other SBN sites. Case in point from “Bleed Cubbie Blue”:

The Cubs should hire Mike Scioscia as bench coach

This move would certainly allow them to party live it’s 2002 - in reverse - when Joe Maddon was Bench Coach and Mike Scioscia was manager.

Mike Scioscia as bench coach? It could work. He does like to sit on the bench. Amirite??

Even better might be this poll. The fans over at BCB seem...

HumpLinks: The ‘Four’ Season

Now it’s just the pair of LCS, with just four teams left standing.

Whoosh go the Yankees. Hey, Yankee fans, what happened to that “We want Boston!” chant??

Earlier yesterday, when I learned that CC Sabathia would be pitching and the disaster that is Angel Hernandez would be moving to behind the plate after his Monday debacle, it occurred to me that BBR splits would let me see how Sabathia fares with Hernandez calling balls and strikes. And I could do this for Sabathia’s entire...
