    The Phillies missed a great opportunity to break the playoff drought. The Philadelphia Phillies were 27-25 following a win on September 19. The team ended up finishing the season with a record of 28-32. The franchise has not made the postseason since 2011 and 2020 seemed to provide the perfect opportunity with the expanded playoff format. The Phillies even had life with a losing record heading into Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays. The result was a 5-0 defeat and another year below .500. Fans have to be wondering if all the spending is worth it for a roster that can’t seem to even get above the .500 mark. There is no doubt the Phillies were the biggest disappointment...

    One Seattle police offer was struck in the head with a metal baseball bat, as others dodged explosives and made 13 arrests during demonstrations that broke out in the city, as well as in other areas across the country, following a grand jury decision in Louisville, Ky. related to Breonna Taylor’s case.

    Yankees’ Domingo German speaks out on his future in baseball By: Alexander Wilson ShareTweetFlipRedditThe starting rotation for the New York Yankees in 2021 will be far different than the one they featured this season. For starters, James Paxton will undoubtedly depart from the Bronx, and the jury is still out on Masahiro Tanaka and JA Happ. Both have looked solid during this abbreviated season due to COVID-19, but a small sample size can often-times be deceiving. The Yankees have to find a way to factor in multiple pitchers who will be ready next year. Luis Severino will be returning from Tommy John surgery, and Domingo German will also have served his suspension due...

    Under normal circumstances, a San Francisco Giants club that’s currently clinging to the eighth and final playoff spot in the National League postseason standings would control its own destiny. It’s been a long time since baseball, or life, has played out under normal circumstances. After a coronavirus scare required immediate postponements of games against the Padres on Friday and Saturday in San Diego, the Giants flew to Seattle and will return to San Francisco without playing a game at T-Mobile Park. Smoky conditions in the Pacific Northwest led to “very unhealthy” Air Quality Index readings that led to the postponement of Tuesday’s series opener and compelled MLB to relocate the two-game set between the Giants and Mariners...

    Brewers RHP Devin Williams leaving hitters dumbfounded with his changeup The pitch invites the batter to hit it. It comes at them looking like a strike, triggering the mechanism that makes the batter begin his swing. But they only find air, shaking their head as the pitch that looked so tantalizing when it left the pitcher’s hand is safely in the catcher’s mitt. That is what Devin Williams, the budding superstar relief pitcher for the Milwaukee Brewers, does to opposing batters with his changeup. Ian Happ and Anthony Rizzo of the Chicago Cubs were his latest victims during the eighth inning on Friday at Miller Park. Happ went down swinging on two changeups. Rizzo swung feebly on a 2-1 changeup...

The club hasn’t officially announced a corresponding roster move, but they signed veteran switch-hitter Justin Smoak to a minor league deal Wednesday and are likely targeting him to replace Sandoval. In 82 at-bats this season, Sandoval hit .220 with a .546 OPS as the switch-hitter struggled to make consistent contact. Sandoval also lost his grip on a roster...

    Sixteen of baseball’s teams are going to celebrate a postseason berth at the end of this month. One storied franchise, though, chose to celebrate a different “accomplishment” for its 2020 season, and in doing so showed a huge problem baseball needs to deal with. This tweet, from the Boston Red Sox, went out around noon ET. The “pressing reset” is a reference to resetting the Competitive Balance Tax (aka luxury tax), a months-long prioritization by the front office to shed payroll — current and future — while willingly decreasing its chances of fielding a competitive team for 2020 and beyond.

Hide Released in 2008, Twilight often contains wooden acting and cringe-worthy dialogue, and its sequels aren’t much better in that department; all five of the Twilight movies are below 50% on Rotten Tomatoes.
