Joey Gallo's Boom-or-Bust Power May Help Decide Rangers' Playoff Fate

The struggles moved from one level to the next without a stumble.

Has Nathan Eovaldi Surpassed Masahiro Tanaka as Yankees' True Ace?

If the New York Yankees' starting rotation were an '80s sitcom, it'd be titled Who's the Ace? And while Masahiro Tanaka might seem like the obvious answer—the Tony Danza character, if you willNathan Eovaldi is making his case.

MLB Team of the Week: Jake Arrieta, Didi Gregorius and Carlos Gonzalez Star

We've turned the calendar on September and sailed through another week of MLB action, which means it's time for a fresh installment of Bleacher Report's Team of the Week.

In case you're new to the party, these are the players (one per position, including a starting pitcher and designated hitter) who have busted box scores over the past seven days. Forget their overall stats. We're judging them solely on what they accomplished between August 28 and September 3.

Does Tim Lincecum's Hip Surgery Spell the End of 'The Freak' in Giants Orange?

Tim Lincecum was never supposed to last this long. But he was never supposed to go away so soon.

He was too small and too funky, and he was never going to endure. Then he was a two-time Cy Young winner and a World Series champion, and he was going to be a San Francisco Giant forever.

MLB Playoff Picture: Why Joey Gallo Could Make a Difference

September is here, and with it comes pennant-chase baseball and prospect call-ups. Not many prospects are gifted with the opportunity to immediately step in and take on a prominent role with a team competing for the postseason, so we’ve highlighted one player with the best opportunity to do that: Joey Gallo of the Texas Rangers.

Cubs' Hopes Rest on Former Linebacker, Cancer Survivor and 'Out of Shape' SS

There are but two seasons across most of these United States, many folks swear: summer and road construction.

Nowhere is this more true than at the corner of Clark and Addison in Chicago, where the sun always shines over Wrigley Field and construction to build a winner has been ongoing since before the days of Bill Veeck and Harry Caray.

Giants' Season on Life Support After Dodgers Sweep, but Not over Yet

There aren't many miles between San Francisco and Los Angeles, but right now the defending champion Giants must feel like they traveled a long way just to get punched in the gut.

The only good news, really, is that the Giants are only reeling from a staggering blow. Not a killing blow.

MLB Stars Under the Most Pressure This 2015 Postseason

If you look around Major League Baseball, there are a number of superstars with incredible regular-season resumes who are plagued by paltry postseason performances.

There are also some big names under big contracts who are expected to deliver World Series rings now.

When Cal Ripken Jr. Became a God, Broke the Unbreakable Record

Lou Gehrig's record stood for a half-century, and it felt like it had been there forever.

Cal Ripken Jr.'s record has stood for 20 years, and it feels like...wait, has it really been 20 years since that fabulous night when he passed Gehrig by playing in his 2,131st consecutive game?

"It seems like yesterday in one way," Ripken said. "And then there's the realization that it's been 20 years."

Where Would the Houston Astros Be Today If They Never Left the NL?

There will be a great many stories to tell about the 2015 MLB season, including the one of how the Houston Astros at last settled into their new home.

It was in 2013 when the Astros jumped from the National League Central to the American League West, thus bringing about an overdue balance between the two leagues. But beyond that, there really wasn't much to say about the move.
