    Lance Berkman was playing through a finger injury yesterday when he tweaked his left calf muscle legging out a rare triple, leaving the game two innings later. He’s also absent from the Cardinals’ lineup this afternoon, sitting out against right-hander Johnny Cueto and the Reds. Berkman described his calf as “tender” following the game and…

  2. Check out the hose on Ian Desmond

    Washington Nationals Ian Desmond leaps to throw out New York Mets Dillon Gee in MLB game New York

    Sorry, I just like saying that. Not sure if you can all an infielder’s arm a “hose” — I’ve only heard it in connection with outfielders — but if it’s even borderline, I’m gonna use “hose” regardless. Because I’m 12 years-old. Anyway, he made an amazing throw from the hole — with his hose —…

    Carl Crawford‘s ongoing comeback from wrist surgery became a bit more complicated yesterday when the left fielder traveled to Boston to have his sore left elbow examined by doctors. Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports that Crawford had been close to playing in extended spring training games before the elbow problems arrived, but adds…

  4. Yoenis Cespedes is one smart dude

    Yoenis Cespedes

    Many people thought that the Yoenis Cespedes would sign with the Marlins. He’s Cuban! It’s Miami! It fits so perfectly!  And then it didn’t happen, of course. In light of all of the Ozzie Guillen stuff, it seems pretty smart, no?  Because who would want any part of that minefield? Not Cespedes, that’s for sure. John…

    Bad news in San Diego: Padres starter Dustin Moseley, who is on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain, has more than a right shoulder strain, and it looks like his season is over as a result. Bud Black said an MRI on Dustin Moseley’s right shoulder revealed “extensive damage,” and that “he’s going to be…

  6. There’s a chance Victor Martinez might be back this year

    Detroit Tigers' Martinez runs bases after hitting a solo home run against the Texas Rangers in Game 3 in their MLB American League Championship Series baseball playoffs in Detroit

    Don’t get too crazy yet — for now I’d file this under “so you’re saying there’s a chance” — but Tom Gage just tweeted something that could be a big deal for the Tigers: New hope from #Tigers for Victor Martinez to return late this season – didn’t need ACL reconstruction – won’t know until…

  7. There was a brawl in the stands at the Blue Jays home Opener

    Fisticuffsmanship! Via Deadspin comes some pretty unfortunate video: a fan fight at the Jays-Red Sox game on Monday. This was the scene at Rogers Centre at the Blue Jays’ home opener: Deadspin says that the Jays had tried to curb Opening Day drinking. No word on how that went as such, but it looks like…

  8. NBC SportsTalk: Should the Marlins have fired Ozzie Guillen?

    Steak and Craigs

    I was on the tee-vee last night, debating with a man named Steak — really — about whether the Marlins should have fired Ozzie Guillen.  File that under “things I never would have guessed I’d be doing this time last week.” Anyway, one thought occurred to me after we taped this thing. If the Marlins…

  9. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 11, 2012, 6:02 AM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Houston Astros

    Braves 6, Astros 4: Chipper Jones came off the disabled list, singled in his first at bat and hit a home run in his second. Dude is on death’s door and he hasn’t had functional knees since Bush’s first term yet he’s still the best hitter on this team.  Tyler Pastornicky hit his first MLB…
