They call him Bruce too. Reds OF Jay Bruce has 9 homers in his last 14 games.

In the Reds 4-3 win over the Brewers, OF Jay Bruce went 1-4 with his NL-leading 17th homer and his NL-leading 45th & 46th RBI. 1B Joey Votto contributed a 3-4 night with a homer & 3 RBI. Could it be back-to-back NL MVPs for the Reds?


Cubs OF Alfonso Soriano was placed on the DL with a quad injury.

Marlins SS Hanley Ramirez is still out with lower back/upper leg pain.  Florida will make a decision on Friday whether to DL him or not if his condition doesn’t improve.

Padres OF Cameron Maybin was placed on the DL.

Cardinals SP Kyle McClellan went on the DL with an injured hip.

Cardinals OF Matt Holliday will go on the DL Thursday with a quad injury.

Angels SP Dan Haren tweaked his back on Wednesday while throwing a bullpen session.  His next start is in jeopardy.  And Al Yankovic lost on Jeopardy, baby.

Mets SS Jose Reyes will return from the bereavement list on Thursday.

Phillies OF Shane “The Flyin Hawaiian” Victorino will come off the DL on Friday.

Rockies rookie SP Juan Nicasio will start Friday vs the Giants.

Rangers SP Matt Harrison will have his Thursday start skipped due to a blister.

Hey! Where'd my hamburger go?

Yankees SP Bartolo Colon threw his first shutout since 2006 today in beating the A’s 5-0. He logged a CG, allowing just 4 hits, 0 walks & 6 Ks. Opposing SP Trevor Cahill gave up 4 runs on 4 hits with 5 walks & 2 Ks in 6 2/3 innings.


Orioles OF Adam “Digdug” Jones missed Monday’s game with the shoulder injury that occurred Sunday.

Yankees C Russell Martin missed Monday’s game with a sore toe.

Cubs OF Alfonso Soriano suffered a strained quad Monday and could be looking at a DL stint.

Red Sox SS Jed Lowrie was out Monday with a stiff left shoulder.

Twins SP Franciso Liriano was placed on the DL with a shoulder injury.

Marlins SS Hanley Ramirez missed Monday’s game due to back pain.  HRAM was quoted to be in the most pain he’s ever felt and he can’t even tie his shoes.  He stood on the entire flight.  Look for him to miss a couple of games at the very least.

Indians OF Grady Sizemore missed Monday’s game, could be just for rest as no injury was reported.  Update : He will return on Tuesday, just clearing his head as he is 0 for his last 12 since coming off the DL.

Giants OF Aaron Rowand left Monday’s game with a hip contusion.

Mets SS Jose Reyes was placed on the bereavement list.

10/20/96..what is this Turn Back the Clock Week at FB2K?

Yankees OF Andruw Jones went 3-3 with 2 homers and 4 RBI in the Yankees 7-3 win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday afternoon. We won’t get into the fact that he was pinch hit for by manager Joe Girardi. Seeing that reminds us of his rookie year, 1996. Game 1 of the World Series at Yankee Stadium he became the youngest player ever to hit 2 home runs in a World Series game, at 19 years 180 days. He broke the record of Yankee legend Mickey Mantle, and to make matters worse the Braves won the game. The Yankees came back to win the epic Series of course. Ironically, Andruw’s last 2 homer game came on 5/1/10 as a member of the Chicago White Sox AT Yankee Stadium. Interesting. Also today, Yankees closer Mariano Rivera became the first player ever to pitch 1000 games for one team. Very historic day in the Blue Jays SP Jo-Jo Reyes remained winless in his last 28 starts. His last win was 6/13/08 vs the Angels. Back when they were just the Anaheim Angels…or maybe the California Angels? Anyway…Reyes gave up 5 runs and 5 hits in 3 innings.


Tigers SP Phil Coke went on the DL with a bone bruise on his ankle.

Red Sox 3B Kevin Youkilis missed Wednesday’s game with a sore left hand.  Don’t think they needed him today.  See after the jump.

Yeah it’s that kind of day/night.
