David Ortiz Glad 'WWE' Era Between Red Sox, Yankees Has Passed

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Boston and New York have been adversaries since the original Hamilton walked Broadway in the late 18th century.

Is Max Scherzer Ready to Become MLB's Next Elite Postseason Ace?

The term "ace" gets tossed around too liberally. There's more to it than simply being the best pitcher on your team.

The Washington Nationals' Max Scherzer, however, checks most of the ace boxes.

Dee Gordon, Marlins' Tearful Salute to Jose Fernandez Is Transcendent MLB Moment

Baseball, perhaps more than any other sport, is a game of moments. On Monday night in Miami, Dee Gordon and the Marlins gave us all an incredible one.

From a Fractured Skull to Baseball's Best Closer: 'It's a Real Miracle'

Watching on television, through the eye of the center field camera, the pitch looks unhittable.

Standing at home plate, with a bat in your hands, it looks just about the same.

Jose Fernandez's Joy, Passion Create Lasting Memories on Tragic Day

If 2016 Is Last Ride of Blue Jays Core, Toronto Still Has Firepower for Deep Run

It was easy to like the Toronto Blue Jays last September. They made the deals of the summer. For the final two months of the regular season, all they did was win.

They had David Price, they had a lineup that didn’t stop, they had a boost from Marcus Stroman’s return and they had whatever momentum you get from going 21-6 in August and 18-9 in September.

Is Arrieta, Lester or Hendricks Cubs' Most Deserving 2016 Postseason Ace?

There's a saying in baseball: "A team never wants to lead the league in meetings."

The implication being that when a club holds a meeting, it's almost universally to discuss what is going wrong and how to repair it. But teams rarely find themselves where the Chicago Cubs stand, having already clinched the NL Central and preparing for the playoffs.

MLB Team of the Week: Gary Sanchez, Hanley Ramirez and Trea Turner Star

The marathon MLB season has been reduced to a sprint. For the clubs still in the hunt, every game matters—a lot.

For Bleacher Report's MLB Team of the Week, on the other hand, all that matters is the recent past.
