Harper-Papelbon tussle result of high emotions — It's true that Bryce Harper does not always run full speed to first base. This is not a big deal. Trust me on this one. Context is critical. Sure, this habit occasionally annoys Harper's teammates. But most of them understand what Jonathan Papelbon apparently doesn't.

Astros not stressed by tight pennant race — He spoke these words in a happy clubhouse, moments after a over the Rangers on Sunday afternoon at Minute Maid Park. This is that time of the year when a season could be riding on every pitch. Every defeat feels catastrophic. And it's absolutely wonderful. "Bring this stress to me every year," Astros manager A.J.

Stress? What stress? The Astros might remember this as the most fun they ever have in baseball. via @mlb

Jeff Banister calmly guides Texas Rangers — HOUSTON -- In late July, Rangers manager Jeff Banister gathered his players in the visiting clubhouse in Anaheim. At the time, the Rangers had a losing record (45-49) and were 7 1/2 games out of first place in the American League West.

Angels believe they can grab Wild Card spot — HOUSTON -- The starting pitcher didn't get through the fifth inning, and then the lead disappeared in the seventh. Nothing has come easy for the Angels in this strange season. What has changed is the bottom line. The Angels are grinding through, are winning and are very much in contention.

Yogi Berra remembered for kindness and wisdom — This is the kind of story you will hear again and again as baseball mourns the passing of one of its greatest players and finest gentlemen. * Yogi Berra passes away; HOF legend was 90 In the beginning, Yankee fans loved Yogi because he was one of the greatest players ever.

Angels-Astros provide early taste of playoffs — HOUSTON -- It was a beauty of a baseball game, one team punching, the other punching back during the Angels' 4-3 win against the Astros on Tuesday night. It had a parade of relievers and pinch-hitters, close calls here, near misses there. So you say the postseason hasn't begun yet?

Milo Hamilton was a broadcasting legend — Milo Hamilton knew almost from the moment he sat behind a microphone that first time seven decades ago: he was going to be one of those lucky people who got to spend his life doing something he loved. He was blessed in that way. He knew it, too.

Prince Fielder giving Rangers a crucial boost — Fielder spent most of last summer recovering from surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck, and for a guy who had played an average of 160 games in his first eight big league seasons, it was a frightening and frustrating experience. "Any time you have surgery on the spine, that's pretty scary," Fielder said.

Prince Fielder is really good at baseball, and you can't get sharp analysis like this just anywhere.

First-place Rangers have much more work to do — ARLINGTON -- The Texas Rangers saw it as a beginning, not an ending. Even after a wild celebration. Even after acknowledging a milestone. They've won nothing. Not yet anyway. That was the message in every corner of the home clubhouse after a 6-5 victory over the Astros on Tuesday night at Globe Life Park.

The Texas Rangers see it as a beginning. Now the real work starts. And also the fun.…

Rangers cut Astros lead to start series — The Astros (77-67) have spent 138 days atop the West, but their margin is down to almost nothing. The Rangers (76-67), once 9 1/2 games out, are close enough to see and feel and taste the postseason. With the Yankees (79-64), Twins (75-68), Angels (72-71) and others still fighting for the two AL Wild Card berths, nothing is guaranteed.

Please stop informing me the governor of Texas (@GovAbbott ) jinxed @Astros and is an idiot. We have traditions to uphold, and he's one.

Did @BlueJays really use David Price in mop up duty and burn him for Game 5? That's not how John Gibbons saw it.
