The Orioles, who can officially avoid the 100-loss plateau with one win in Monday's doubleheader against the Red Sox, haven’t made a big splash in free agency in recent years -- unless you count overpaying for Zombie Vladimir Guerrero or inking...
The Pittsburgh Pirates didn’t need their All-Star on Sunday. The closer is superfluous when it’s an eight-run game. Instead, a pair of maybe-could-have-beens again made the case that, perhaps, these Pirates are deserving of more attention...
The Nationals showed real improvement. It wasn’t nearly enough. Despite having baserunners in every inning but the eighth, and getting seven hits and seven walks, the Washington Nationals were held harmless by the Florida Marlins in a 5-2 loss...

How much is one of the best players in baseball history worth? We may soon find out if Albert Pujols follows through on his threat to test the free-agent market this winter. The Cardinals slugger probably won't be the only big-name player available....
Pitching in the big leagues for the second time since undergoing shoulder surgery in 2009, Chien-Ming Wang lasted longer and allowed fewer earned runs than in his season debut with the Washington Nationals. The result was the same, though, and thus the...
Jonny Gomes ended his home run drought by picking on a familiar pitcher. Gomes hit his first homer for Washington, Jayson Werth delivered a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning and the Nationals beat the Colorado Rockies 3-2 Sunday. Gomes had gone 25...
