Cardinals on the wrong end of an early statement series

It was quiet in the St. Louis Cardinals' clubhouse Wednesday night, with players getting dressed for a short flight to Atlanta either silently or while conversing in whispers.

You would expect nothing less -- or more -- after a three-game sweep to a division rival. Teams that laugh and dance after losses have become too accustomed to it. The Cardinals are a long way from that point, if they ever get there.

What's wrong with the Yankees? Quite a bit

The New York Yankees have stumbled to an 8-16 start, their worst through 24 games since 1991, and they sit in last place in the AL East.

What has gone wrong? A lot. They're failing to score, haven't hit in the clutch, and the elite bullpen hasn't mattered, because the starting pitching can't get them the ball.

MLB-worst Braves fire manager Fredi Gonzalez

Off to one of the worst starts in their history, the Atlanta Braves fired manager Fredi Gonzalez on Tuesday.

The Braves dropped to an MLB-worst 9-28 after an 8-5 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night. They haven't won consecutive games over a 5-19 span during which they've averaged 2.7 runs and hit eight home runs, a quarter of which came Monday. Four MLB players have more homers this season than the Braves, who have 11 total.

Phil's Last Homestand

How has Phil Coyne survived 80 years as an usher for the Pittsburgh Pirates? For the 98-year-old lifelong Bucs fan, it all comes down to luck -- and Oreo cookies.

Why didn't the Orioles use Zach Britton in wild-card loss to Blue Jays?

Zach Britton, his shoulders slumped, standing in the center of the Baltimore Orioles clubhouse Tuesday night, tried to come up with the right words, but like everyone else, had no answers.
