You win nine games in a row and suddenly ESPN starts writing about how good your baseball team is.

James Paxton claims that the Astros were stealing signs. James then decided to pop off on the matter last night and it is worth your time.

Josh James is striving to shake off the early-season woes.

Brad Peacock will be joining the rotation shortly.

A.J. Hinch is very proud of fellow Stanford alum Tiger Woods after winning the Masters.

If you stick the Texas Rangers, the last place team in the AL West at 7-7, into the AL East, they would be 2nd in the division trailing only the Rays.
