Shelby Foote: A Great American Storyteller

It has been 23 years since Ken Burns released his Magnus Opus documentary on the Civil War, but it left a lasting impression on how Americans view that war. No single individual in the series made more of an impact on those who watched it than the great Civil War historian, Shelby Foote. Jun 23, 2013 11:30 AM PT

Sloppy A's Beat Weaver-less Angels with Long Ball

In Tuesday night’s match-up between the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the Oakland Athletics, both teams seemed to be playing to lose, as Oakland eventually pulled out a 9-5 victory. Both starting pitchers, Jarrod Parker for the A’s and C.J. Wilson for the Angels, who is now the de facto leader of the staff after Jared Weaver’s injury, looked shaky in the first inning.

Angel Ace Out 4-6 weeks

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim may have to club their way to victory in the next month as their ace and perennial Cy Young contender, Jared Weaver, has hit the 15-day DL with a non-throwing arm elbow fracture. Weaver, whose velocity had already been down to start the season, fell awkwardly on his left arm in a 7-3 loss to the Texas Rangers on Sunday. Although initial X-rays were negative, it now appears that there is a break in Weaver's left elbow and it is estimated that he will require about a month to recuperate. Apr 9, 2013 3:35 PM PT

AL West: Division Champ Oakland Even Stronger in Title Defense

Few division champions can remain under the radar, but the 2013 Oakland Athletics currently sit in the shadow of their division rivals, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and Texas Rangers. Although the national media might be entranced by the possibilities of a lineup that includes Josh Hamilton, Albert Pujols and Mike Trout, the A’s have more depth and a whole lot more pitching top to bottom. And the Rangers, as talented as they are, may struggle to recover from the collapse in the last ten days of 2012. Apr 1, 2013 11:24 PM PT

AL West: Texas Rangers Must Move On from Late Season Collapse

The Rangers will have to find a new way to win this year as the team is lacking a few of its offensive stalwarts, including its big star, Josh Hamilton, who signed a massive contract to play for the division rival Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and slugging catcher Mike Napoli, who signed with the Boston Red Sox. This year’s team must, surprisingly, win with its strong pitching. Mar 31, 2013 9:46 AM PT

Seattle Mariners: Team in Transition Will Challenge Division Leaders

The Mariners went out and added bats, mostly power bats, in the offseason. But will this boost the team’s chances to compete against the big dogs in the division? Although a slight bump in the offensive production can’t hurt, the defense, especially the outfield defense, may suffer terribly. And Felix Hernandez , who just signed a seven year, $175 million deal to anchor the rotation, can’t be relied upon to carry the team into the playoffs. Mar 31, 2013 9:40 AM PT

AL West Preview: Houston Astros Will Remain in Cellar in New Division

In 2013 the Houston Astros will find themselves in a new division, a new league, with a new manager—former Nationals third base coach Bo Porter—and will don new uniforms. The changes and spiffy new uniforms will have little effect on the Astros winning percentage, however, and they are likely to finish last in the tough AL West, en route to their third 100 loss season in a row.
