    Tim Hudson

    Tim Hudson continues to make good progress in his recovery from November back surgery, throwing live batting practice yesterday for the first time. Hudson told Mark Bowman of MLB.com that he “felt really good” and “felt like my stuff was pretty good for the first day out there.” He’s slated to throw another round of…

    This was pretty inevitable, but the Phillies have shipped Domonic Brown to minor league camp. As Matt Gelb notes, injuries had a lot to do with it. He hurt his hand, his thumb and his neck at various times.  Though his less-than-spectacular, albeit short, stints in the bigs didn’t help either.  To his credit, Brown…

    Terry Francona was in Ft. Myers to cover a Red Sox game for ESPN.  And yes, the topic of his unceremonious departure from Boston and the subsequent crap anonymous Red Sox front office people shoveled on to him came up. Francona tells the Boston Herald that, as far as all that goes, he is moving…

    The other day Lance Berkman said that Bud Selig “extorted” Jim Crane into moving the Astros to the American League. It was kind of surprising to hear Berkman using such charged language. He seems more like a “gosh, that’d be swell” kind of guy, not the sort of guy who ruffles feathers like that. Well,…

  5. This Jamie Moyer thing is gonna happen, huh?

    Jamie Moyer

    As D.J. mentioned the other day, with Jamie Moyer, every outing matters. Well, his latest outing was outstanding: four perfect innings, striking out four. The Giants had a lot of starters in the lineup. While he had that one really bad start in a minor league game, in nine innings of major league action Moyer has…

  6. Bobby Valentine is irked at Joe Girardi

    Bobby Valentine

    Just so you know, I have created a “Bobby Valentine is irked at ____” template for the year. Figure it will save time.  Anyway, here is what he’s irked at now: What could possibly be controversial about a 4-4 tie in spring training? Boston Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine found something, objecting to New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi’s…
