Robert also had 2 stolen bases, 2nd then 3rd.

His BA has dropped 30 pts since I praised him.

The Desert Dogs lost to the Rafters 4-3, dropping their record to 11-18.

For some reason, a .178 hitting Basabe was batting leadoff and went 0-4 with 3 K's, but did manage a walk.

Robert hit cleanup and went 1-4 with a K.  He did score a run.  His BA is .324.

Laz Rivera hit ninth and went 0-4 with 2 K's.  His BA is .215

Tanner Banks started the game and pitched 5 strong innings, giving up 1 earned run on six singles, two walks, and 1 K.  His overall ERA improved to 4.43.

    On November 14 in Baseball History...


    1946 - After finishing second to Yankees Joe DiMaggio (1941) and Joe Gordon (1942), Ted Williams (.342, 38, 123) wins the American League Most Valuable Player award. The Red Sox outfielder missed the last three seasons due to serving in the military during World War II.

    1956 - The Pirates threaten to move the franchise from Pittsburgh unless a new municipal stadium is built to replace Forbes Field. The second division club drew 949,878 fans, the fifth best total of the eight National League teams.

    1957 - The AP names Henry Aaron as the 1957 National League Most Valuable Player with 239 votes. Stan Musial is a close second with 230, and Red Schoendienst is third with 221.

    1961 - John Fetzer becomes the lone owner of the Tigers when he buys out the estate of Fred Knorr.

    1973 - Reggie Jackson wins the American League Most Valuable Player Award unanimously. The Oakland star led the league in runs (99), home runs (32), RBI (117), and slugging (.531). Jim Palmer is named the American League Cy Young winner.

    1979 - California's Don Baylor, who led the American League in runs and RBI, is named the league's Most Valuable Player.

    1979 - David Goltz, the first player to be selected by the maximum thirteen teams in the first round of the free agent draft, signs a six-year, three-million dollar contract with the Dodgers. The former Twins' pitcher (14-13, 4.16) will post a 9-19 record during his 2+ seasons with the club.

    1985 - The Brewers release 39-year-old pitcher Rollie Fingers, at the time the all-time major-league saves leader with 341.

    1986 - The Doubleday Publishing Company agrees to sell the World Champion Mets to Nelson Doubleday and Fred Wilpon for $80.75 million. The company had purchased the Mets for a then-record $21.1 million in 1980.

    1988 - The Angels name Doug Rader as manager of the team. Rader had compiled a 155-200 (.437) record piloting the Rangers from 1982 to 1985.

    1989 - Padres reliever Mark Davis wins the National League Cy Young Award. He saved 44 games with a 1.85 ERA.

    1990 - Doug Drabek (22-6) wins the National League Cy Young Award, collecting 23 of a possible 24 first-place votes.

    1996 - Juan Gonzalez of Texas edges Seattle's Alex Rodriguez by three votes to win the American League Most Valuable Player. It is the tightest race for the award in the American League since 1960. Gonzalez batted .314 with 47 home runs and 144 RBI despite missing 28 games with an injury.


    2000 - Winning his second straight award and third of his career, the 'Big Unit' Randy Johnson (19-7, 2.64) of the Arizona Diamondbacks overwhelming wins the NL Cy Young Award.

    2001 - For the second time in his career, Seattle skipper Lou Piniella is named the American League Manager of the Year. 'Sweet Lou', the only person to appear on every ballot, guided the Mariners to an historical 116 victories which tied 1906 Cubs as the winningest team in major league history.

    2001 - Larry Bowa (86-76, .531) becomes the first Phillies manager to be named by the BBWAA as the National League Manager of the Year. In his first year at the helm, Philadelphia improves by 21 games finishing the season two games behind the first-place Atlanta.

    2006 - Brandon Webb (16-8, 3.10) garners 15 of the possible 32 BBWAA's first-place votes to win the NL Cy Young Award. The Diamondback right-hander, who had the fewest victories of any starter to ever win the prestigious pitching prize, beats out Padres closer Trevor Hoffman and Cardinals starter Chris Carpenter with Reds hurler Aaron Harang, who led the league in victories and strikeouts, not receiving one vote from the writers.

    2007 - Bob Melvin is named National League Manager of the Year by the Baseball Writers' Association of America. The Diamondbacks skipper, who led the club to a league-best 90 victories, also was selected by his fellow managers for the same honor in The Sporting News poll.

    2007 - Eric Wedge becomes the first Indians skipper to be selected by the Baseball Writers' Association of America as the American League Manager of the Year. The 39-year-old skipper led the Tribe to the AL Central title compiling a 96-66 record in the regular season.

    2007 - Major League Baseball announces the World champion Red Sox will take on the A's in the 2008 season opener at the Tokyo Dome scheduled for March 25. The Opening Day game will mark the third time the regular major league season has started in Japan.

    2007 - Only a few hours after Alex Rodriguez confirms on his website he has spoken directly with the Steinbrenner family reports start to surface that the Yankees and their third baseman are close to a multi-year deal that would be worth as much as $290 million. The move is seen, in part, as an attempt to soften the harsh criticism incurred when A-Rod, through his agent Scott Boras, announced his decision to opt out of his contract with the team during Game 4 of the World Series.

    2010 - A Santa Barbara father-son sports collectors team pays $575,912 for the bat that Kirk Gibson used to hit his dramatic World Series Game 1 home run in 1988. The winning bid was the second-highest sale price ever for a baseball bat, topped only by the $1.265 million paid in 2004 for a Babe Ruth signed bat, which was used by the 'Bambino' to hit the first home run at Yankee Stadium.

    2011 - Craig Kimbrel unanimously wins the National League Rookie of the Year award. The Braves' right-handed closer, who struck out 127 batters in 77 innings, set a major league record for saves by a rookie with 46.

    2011 - Former Red Sox reliever Jonathan Papelbon agrees to a four-year, $50 million free-agent deal to finish games for the Phillies. The contract is the richest ever signed by a closer, surpassing B.J. Ryan's five-year, $47 million pact with the Blue Jays.

    2011 - Mike Matheny is named to succeed Tony La Russa, who retired as the manager of the Cardinals a few days after leading the Redbirds to a world championship. The 41-year old former minor league instructor, who served as a special assistant to general manager John Mozeliak, has no previous managerial experience.

    2012 - In one of the closest races to determine the American League Cy Young Award winner, Rays' southpaw David Price (20-5, 2.56) outpoints last year's recipient Tigers ace Justin Verlander (17-8, 2.64) by the slim margin of four points. The difference proves to be the one first-place vote given to the Tampa Bay left-hander's teammate, closer Fernando Rodney.

    2013 - For the second consecutive season, Miguel Cabrera (.344, 44, 137) is named the AL Most Valuable Player. The Detroit third baseman, who received 23 of 30 first place votes to finish ahead of Mike Trout and Chris Davis, joins Hal Newhouse (1944-45) and Hank Greenberg (1935, 1940) as the only players to win the prestigious award twice while playing for the Tigers.

    2013 - After leading the Pirates to their first postseason appearance since 1992, Andrew McCutchen (.317, 21, 84) is named the National League's Most Valuable Player. The Pittsburgh outfielder garners 28 of the writers' 30 first-place votes, easily outdistancing runners-up Diamondback first baseman Paul Goldschmidt and Cardinal catcher Yadier Molina for the MVP honor.

    2013 - The National College Baseball Hall of Fame announces that its new facility to be built in Lubbock, Texas will be named after George H.W. Bush, who was a first baseman and captain for Yale. The 41st president of the United States participated in the College World Series with the Bulldogs in 1947 and '48, the inaugural years of the collegiate national championship. 

    2014 - The Tigers come to terms on a $68 million, four-year deal with 35 year-old Victor Martinez, the team's designated hitter who finished second behind Mike Trout in the AL MVP balloting this year. The Detroit DH helped the team to capture its fourth straight AL Central title, hitting .335 with 32 home runs while driving 103 runs.

    On November 13 in Baseball History...


    1899 - The National League announces starting next season there will be two umpires working each game.

    1931 - Yankee owner Jacob Ruppert buys the International League's Newark franchise. The Bears will be very successful and will send many players to the Bronx.

    1934 - Bucky Harris, who managed the 1924 and 1925 American League champion Senators, is hired back by Washington to replace youthful Joe Cronin, who has been sold to Boston.

    1951 - Lefty O'Doul's All-Stars, including Joe DiMaggio, Ferris Fain, and Billy Martin, lose 3-1 to a Pacific League All-Star team. This is only the second time since 1922 that an American professional team has lost to Japan, and the first time to professional players.

    1958 - Mayor Robert Wagner of New York announces preliminary plans for a third major league. Chairman William Shea, of what will become the Continental League, says it is apparent that the National League is going to ignore New York City. He implies that the new league will be free to raid major-league rosters.

    1965 - At the beginning of his induction speech at the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame, Branch Rickey mumbles to the audience before collapsing over the podium, "I don't believe I'm going to be able to speak any longer." The 83-year old baseball executive, who suffered a massive heart attack on stage, will remain unconscious while in intensive care at Boone County Memorial Hospital in Columbia, Missouri before dying three weeks later.

    1967 - Following a meeting of National League owners, president Warren Giles says the league will not stand in the way of American League expansion to Seattle and Kansas City.

    1968 - Bob Gibson (22-9, 268 strikeouts, 1.12 ERA) edges Pete Rose (.335, 42 doubles) to win the National League Most Valuable Player award.

    1974 - Dodgers first baseman Steve Garvey wins the National League Most Valuable Player Award with a .312 BA, 21 home runs, and 111 RBI.

    1978 - The Yankees sign pitcher Luis Tiant as a free agent to a two-year $875,000 contract.

    1979 - For the first time in history, two players share the Most Valuable Player Award. The National League co-winners are Willie Stargell, the spiritual leader of the Pirates, who batted .281 with 32 home runs, and Cardinals first baseman Keith Hernandez, who led the National League in runs (116), doubles (48), and batting (.344).

    1984 - Ryne Sandberg wins the National League Most Valuable Player Award, becoming the first Cub to do so since Ernie Banks in 1959. Sandberg hit .314 with 19 home runs and 32 stolen bases and led the National League in runs (114) and triples (19).

    1987 - Former team manager and broadcaster Jim Frey is named the Cubs' Director of Baseball Operations. The skipper of the 1984 Chicago squad that won the NL East title, Frey's first major move will be to name Don Zimmer, a longtime friend, as field boss.

    1995 - Reds' shortstop Barry Larkin wins the National League's Most Valuable Player award, with Colorado outfielder Dante Bichette and Atlanta right-hander Greg Maddux as the runners-up in a close election. The Cincinnati infielder, the first shortstop since Maury Wills in 1962 to cop the prestigous prize, provided excellent defense and batted .319 to help his team to capture the NL West Division.

    1996 - Padres third baseman Ken Caminiti is the fourth unanimous winner of the National League Most Valuable Player. The slick-fielding Caminiti set team records for home runs (40), RBI (130), and slugging percentage (.621), while leading the Padres to the National League West title for the first time since 1984.

    1997 - Colorado outfielder Larry Walker is named National League Most Valuable Player, becoming the first Canadian in either league to win the honor. Walker, who hit .366 with 49 homers and 130 RBI, caps off a big week for Canada. Earlier in the week, Roger Clemens of Toronto and Pedro Martinez of Montreal each won the Cy Young Award.

    1998 - The ball thrown by Red Sox hurler hurler Howard Ehmke and hit by Babe Ruth for the first home run hit in Yankee Stadium is sold at an auction for $126,500 ($110,000 bid + 15% commission). Mark Scala found the 1923 historic ball in the attic of his grandmother's home several years ago.

    2000 - Becoming the first pitcher to win the American League Cy Young award unanimously in consecutive years, Red Sox hurler Pedro Martinez (18-6,1.74) has copped the 'top pitcher' honor three of the last four seasons.

    2002 - The Giants select former Expo veteran skipper Felipe Alou to replace Dusty Baker as their new manager.

    2003 - Eric Gagne, who saved 55 consecutive games for the Dodgers, becomes the ninth reliever to win a Cy Young Award. The runner up is Jason Schmidt of the Giants, the pitcher with the NL’s best won-lost percentage (17-4, 77%) and who also had an ERA of 2.34 to lead the circuit.

    2003 - MLB announces that the drug screens taken during the past baseball season tested positive in 5-to-7 percent of the 1,438 samples provided by the players. The results will set into motion a mandatory testing program for performance-enhancing drugs with punitive consequences for failure for the first time in baseball history.

    2006 - Three of the top four National League vote-getters for Rookie of the Year Honors finishers are Marlins teammates. Florida shortstop Hanley Ramirez, in an extremely tight race, edges Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman and teammates second baseman Dan Uggla and hurler Josh Johnson.

    2006 - The Mets stage a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the construction of the 45,000-seat ballpark which will replace Shea Stadium in 2009.

    2006 - Tigers right-hander Jason Verlander (17-9, 3.63) cops the AL Rookie of the Year award receiving 26 of a possible 28 first place votes cast by the BBWAA. The 23-year old hard-throwing hurler becomes the first starting pitcher to win the freshman award since Yankee newcomer Dave Righetti accomplished the feat in 1981.

    2007 - Given their postseason match-ups of the CYA candidates, many baseball observers are surprised C.C. Sabathia (19-7, 3.21) is selected over Red Sox ace Josh Beckett (20-7, 3.27) for the American League Cy Young Award by members of the Baseball Writers Association of America. In the ALCS, the 27-year old Indian southpaw faced Beckett twice and lost each time, but voting is done at the end of the regular season.

    2008 - Cliff Lee (22-3, 2.54) receives 24 of 28 first-place votes from the BBWAA to win the American League Cy Young award. Joining Gaylord Perry (1972) and C. C. Sabathia (2007), the 30 year-old southpaw becomes the third Indian hurler to cop the honor.

    2008 - In a five-player trade with the White Sox, the Yankees obtained Nick Swisher and Triple A right-hander Kaneoka Texeira in exchange for pitching prospects Jeff Marquez and Jhonny Nunez, as well as infielder Wilson Betemit. The Bronx Bombers plan to use the flexible 27-year old switch hitter to replace departing first baseman Jason Giambi, but could be moved to the outfield if the team acquires a big name free agent to play first.


    2008 - With a year left on his contract, Ron Gardenhire agrees to a two-year extension to remain as the Twins skipper through 2001. The 51-year-old manager, who replaced Tom Kelly in 2002, has compiled a 622-512 record during his seven-year tenure in Minnesota winning four division titles with the small market team.

    2010 - During an auction at the Louisville Slugger Museum, the winning bid for the ball Yankee slugger Babe Ruth hit for his 702nd career home run is $264,500, three times the estimated price. The historic horsehide, hit at Chicago's Comiskey Park in 1934 off Ted Lyons, had been passed down by three generations of a Minnesota family before being made available to the public.


    2010 - The Marlins send outfielder Cameron Maybin to the Padres for Edward Mujica and Ryan Webb, who are both right-handed relievers. The 23-year-old outfielder, the 10th overall pick in 2005, was traded by Detroit two years later in a major multiplayer Winter Meeting deal that included Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis.

    2012 - Bob Melvin, for the second time in his career, is selected as the Manager of the Year when the Baseball Writers' Association of America name him first on 16 of 28 ballots to narrowly outpoint Buck Showalter of the Orioles, 116-108. The Oakland skipper, the National League's BBWAA managerial award recipient in 2007 with the Diamondbacks, guided the A's to the American League West title before losing Game 5 in the ALCS to Detroit.

    2012 - Davey Johnson, who led the Nationals to the most victories in the major leagues with a record of 98-64, is selected as the National League Manager of the Year, easily outdistancing runners-ups Dusty Baker of the Reds and Bruce Bouchy of the Giants, when he receives 23 of the 32 first-place votes cast by the writers. The 69-year old field, honored by the BBWAA in 1997 for his managerial efforts with the Orioles, joins Bobby Cox (Blue Jays, Braves), Tony La Russa (White Sox and A's, Cardinals), Lou Piniella (Mariners, Cubs), and Jim Leyland (Pirates,Tigers) as the fifth skipper to have won the award in both leagues.

    2013 - The Phillies announce the team has reached a two-year, $16 million deal with Marlon Byrd, who helped the Pirates reach the postseason for the first since 1992 by hitting .318 for after being traded by the Mets to the Bucs at the end of August. Last offseason, the 36 year-old outfielder signed a minor league contract with New York, emerging as one of the team’s few offensive assets before being dealt to Pittsburgh along with John Buck for two minor league prospects.

    2013 - Max Scherzer is selected by the BBWAA as the American League's Cy Young Award winner, receiving 28 of 30 writers’ first place votes to finish ahead of Ranger ace Yu Darvish and Mariner starter Hisashi Iwakuma. The 29 year-old Tigers right-hander, who posted a 21-3 record with a 2.90 ERA in 32 starts for the pennant-winning club, joins Justin Verlander (2011), Denny McLain (1968-69) and Willie Hernandez (1984) as the fourth hurler to cop the prestigious pitching prize hurling for Detroit.

    2014 - Angels outfielder Mike Trout is the unanimous selection of the BBWAA for the American League's Most Valuable Player Award, after finishing as the writers' second choice during the previous two seasons to the Tigers' Miguel Cabrera. The 23-year-old South Jersey native becomes the youngest unanimous MVP selection in baseball history.

    On November 12 in Baseball History...


    1920 - Owners unanimously elect Kenesaw Mountain Landis chairman for seven years. Landis accepts, but only as sole commissioner with final authority over the players and owners, while remaining a federal judge (with his $7,500 federal salary deducted from the baseball salary of $50,000). The selection of the tough-minded jurist is seen as a move by the owners to restore the public's faith in the national pastime after being tarnished by the 1919 World Series scandal, a transgression that involved eight White Sox players who were paid off by professional g@mblers to throw the Fall Classic against Cincinnati.


    1923 - Giant manager John McGraw trades outfielders Casey Stengel and Bill Cunningham along with shortstop Dave Bancroft to the Braves for pitchers Joe Oeschger and Bill Southworth.

    1936 - Following the death of Phil Ball, wealthy owner of the St. Louis Browns, his estate sells the team to a syndicate headed by Donald L. Barnes and William O. DeWitt. As the new owners of Sportsman's Park, they announce their intention to install lights and bring night baseball to the American League.

    1940 - Unwilling to yield to the players' demands during the season, Alva Bradley finally fires Indian manager Oscar Vitt and replaces him with Roger Peckinpaugh. It is Peckinpaugh's second time as Cleveland's field boss.

    1952 - Philadelphia A's hurler Bobby Shantz (24-7, 2.48) is named as American League MVP by the baseball writers. The 27-year old southpaw, who is named first on 16 of the 20 writers' ballots, easily outdistances the runners-up Allie Reynolds and Mickey Mantle.

    1955 - Fred Hutchinson replaces Harry Walker as the Cardinal manager. With the departure of 'the Hat', the National League for the first time in its history will not have a player-manager in the circuit.

    1958 - Yankees right-hander Bob Turley, the World Series Most Valuable Player, wins the Cy Young Award edging out runner-up Warren Spahn of Milwaukee by one vote. 'Bullet Bob' posted a 2.97 ERA while compiling a 21-7 record and won another two games for New York in the Fall Classic.

    1959 - White Sox second baseman Nellie Fox wins the American League's Most Valuable Player award. Teammates Luis Aparicio and Early Wynn finish second and third in the voting.


    1969 - Minnesota's Harmon Killebrew, who led the league with 49 home runs, 140 RBI, and a .430 on-base percentage, is voted American League Most Valuable Player.

    1975 - Tom Seaver of the Mets wins his third Cy Young Award. He led the National League with 22 wins, notched 243 strikeouts, and had a 2.38 ERA.

    1980 - Baltimore's Steve Stone, who led the American League in wins with a 25-7 record, edges Oakland's Mike Norris for the American League Cy Young Award.

    1986 - Red Sox right-hander Roger Clemens (24-4, 2.48) becomes only the second American League pitcher to unanimously win the Cy Young Award. Denny McLain was the first to accomplish the feat in 1968.

    1996 - Toronto's Pat Hentgen edges Andy Pettitte of the Yankees for the Cy Young Award in the closest American League voting since 1972 when Gaylord Perry topped Wilbur Wood by six points. Hentgen (20-10), the major league leader in complete games, outpoints Pettitte (21-8) by the narrow margin of 110-104. Yankees reliever Mariano Rivera finishes third in the voting and receives one first-place vote.

    1997 - Ken Griffey, Jr. becomes the ninth unanimous pick for American League Most Valuable Player. Griffey hit .304 for Seattle, led the American League with 56 homers, and finished first in the majors with 147 RBI. He receives all 28 first-place votes and 392 points in balloting to become the first unanimous American League pick since Frank Thomas in 1993, and the 13th unanimous selection overall.

    2001 - One year after playing Class-A ball, Albert Pujols (.329, 37, 130) is named the National League Rookie of the Year by the BBWAA. The Cardinal freshman set NL rookie marks RBIs for (130), total bases (360) and extra-base hits (88) and falls one home run shy of tying the National League rookie record of 38 established by Frank Robinson in 1956 as a member of the Reds.

    2001 - Although disappointed in not winning the award unanimously, Mariners outfielder Ichiro, who led the circuit in hitting, is named the American League Rookie of the Year by the Baseball Writers Association of America. Chris Assenheimer of the Elyria (Ohio) Chronicle-Telegram voted for C.C. Sabathia (17-4) as his top choice citing the nine years of professional experience in Japan made Ichiro less of a rookie than 21-year old Indian hurler.

    2002 - Miguel Tejada, who receives 356 points from the Baseball Writers' Association, including 21 first-place votes of the 28 cast, is selected as the American League's Most Valuable Player. The A's shortstop joins countrymen Sammy Sosa and George Bell as Dominican Republic natives to win the award.

    2007 - In the closest election since the current method was initiated in 1980 - 5 points for 1st; 3 points for second; 1 point for third, the Baseball Writers' Association of America selects Ryan Braun as the National League Rookie of the Year. By a margin of just two points, the Brewers' third baseman edges Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who was listed first on more than half of the BBWAA ballots.

    2007 - Dustin Pedroia (.317, 8, 50) becomes the sixth Red Sox player and the first to win the American League Rookie of the Year since Nomar Garciaparra was selected in 1997. The 5'9" second baseman, who is listed first on 24 of the 28 BBWAA ballots, easily outdistances Rays outfielder Delmon Young (.288, 13, 93).

    2008 - Receiving 27 of the 28 first-place votes cast by the Baseball Writers' Association of America, Joe Maddon easily wins the American League Manager of the Year award. The Rays skipper, who succeeded Lou Piniella in 2006, this year's NL's choice for the honor, led Tampa Bay to a pennant after the team posted the worst record (66-96) in baseball last season.

    2008 - Lou Piniella wins the National League Manager of the Year award after leading the Cubs to the postseason for the second consecutive season. The fiery skipper also won the AL honor in 1995 and 2001 while managing in Seattle.

    2008 - The A's acquire Matt Holliday (.321, 25, 88) from the Rockies in exchange for former Rookie-of-the Year reliever Huston Street, southpaw starter Greg Smith and highly touted outfield prospect Carlos Gonzalez. The 28 year-old All-Star left fielder, who can become a free agent at the end of the season, was unable to come to terms with Colorado on a long term contract.

    2011 - In recognition of his contributions to the Boys & Girl Clubs in both Philadelphia and his native Hawaii, Shane Victorino, the recipient of the 2011 Branch Rickey Award, is inducted as the 20th member of the Baseball Humanitarians Hall of Fame. The Phillies' center fielder, through his foundation, has pledged more than $900,000 to renovate the 105-year-old Nicetown Boys & Girls Club, located in an impoverished section of Philadelphia, into the centerpiece of the organization's twelve facilities in the city.

    2012 - Mike Trout (.326, 30, 83), the BBWAA's unanimous selection as the Rookie of the Year, surpasses Lou Whitaker (1978 Tigers) by three months and five days to become the youngest American League player to be honored with the award. The 21-year-old Angel center fielder joins Evan Longoria (2008 Rays), Nomar Garciaparra (1997 Red Sox), Derek Jeter (1996 Yankees), Tim Salmon (1993 Angels), Sandy Alomar Jr. (1990 Indians), Mark McGwire (1987 A's) and Carlton Fisk (1972 Red Sox) as the only other unanimous AL winners.

    2012 - Bryce Harper becomes the second youngest player to be selected as the National League Rookie of the Year, being 24 days older than Doc Gooden when the Mets right-hander won the award in 1984. The 20 year-old center fielder is first Nationals player to win a BBWAA postseason award since the franchise moved from Montreal to Washington in 2005.

    2013 - Clint Hurdle becomes the second Buc skipper, joining Jim Leyland (1990, ’92) to be selected as the National League Manager of the Year by the BBWAA, after guiding the 94-68 Pirates to the Wild Card and their first winning season since 1992. The Pittsburgh pilot was named first on 25 of 30 writers' ballots, easily out-distancing runner-ups Don Mattingly of the Dodgers and the Braves' Fredi Gonzalez for the award.

    2013 - Terry Francona, who never received a first-place vote for the award after guiding Boston to two World Championships in his eight seasons with the club, is named the American League’s Manager of the Year by the BBWAA. The Indian skipper, who helped the much-improved Wild Card Tribe reach the playoffs for the first time in six years, receives 15 of the 30 writers’ first-place votes, with John Farrell of the Red Sox finishing second, having his name on the top of a dozen ballots.

   2015 - The Atlanta Braves signed A.J. Pierzynski as a free agent.

    2015 - The Atlanta Braves traded Andrelton Simmons and Jose Briceno to the Anaheim Angels in exchange for Erick Aybar, Sean Newcomb, Chris Ellis and cash.

Good tweet:

#WhiteSox Luis Robert has collected a 14-game hit streak in Arizona.

As one scout told me, “If you ever want to feel completely inadequate as a human being, go stand next to Luis.”
