    Barry Bonds

    A writer who once ripped Barry Bonds for 400 pages or so talked with Bonds’ son about the nature of celebrity and celebrity villains.

  2. Video: Jose Iglesias made a ridiculous play last night

    Jose Iglesias

    Off-balance, running the other way, across his body, deep in the hole and he STILL got the speedy Brett Gardner.

    The F-bombs were hilarious, but the substance of Price’s rant was far more telling.

    It was a foul night for Ohio baseball.

    Dodgertown

    It’s been a facility in flux since the Dodgers left in 2008, but it has a new life under new management.

  6. Braves pitcher Andrew McKirahan releases as statement regarding his PED suspension

    Apr 20, 2015, 1:15 PM EDT

    Andrew McKirahan

    And he actually owns up to taking stuff. None of that “I have no idea how that got in my system” rebop from him.

  7. I discussed the “minor league city downgrades” list on NPR over the weekend

    Apr 20, 2015, 12:30 PM EDT

    El Paso

    People from El Paso are still mad about that. Oh well.

  8. You don’t have to trust Alex Rodriguez. Nothing requires you to do that at all.

    Apr 20, 2015, 11:02 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    The greatest trick baseball columnists ever pulled was convincing the world that the way they frame a topic is the only way to approach the topic.

  9. Joe Buck has a truly awful suggestion about how to improve MLB broadcasts

    Apr 20, 2015, 9:52 AM EDT

    Joe Buck

    If you hate in-game interviews of managers, just wait for in-game interviews of players.

  10. Braves lefty Andrew McKirahan suspended 80 games for PEDs

    Apr 20, 2015, 8:57 AM EDT

    Andrew McKirahan

    Interesting: this was reported via a confidential source. Not released in a statement by the league.

  11. Video: Jon Lester tosses his entire glove to first base for an out

    Or, as I call it, “pulling a Mulholland.”

  12. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 20, 2015, 6:44 AM EDT

    Nelson Cruz

    Nelson Cruz has eight homers on the young season. And a line that looks like something Barry Bonds put up over the course of four seasons.

  13. Josh Hamilton’s teammates say he’s in great shape and ready to play

    Apr 18, 2015, 7:17 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    There are, increasingly, two Angels camps when it comes to the Josh Hamilton matter: Arte Moreno and everybody else.

  14. Josh Hamilton’s California house is for sale

    Apr 18, 2015, 6:49 AM EDT

    Screen Shot 2015-04-18 at 6.46.17 AM

    When Angels owner Arte Moreno was asked if Josh Hamilton would ever play for the Angels again, he said “I will not say that.” With this listing, perhaps Hamilton is saying so himself.

  15. Mike Scioscia is concerned that Josh Hamilton is not “getting the help he needs”

    Apr 17, 2015, 5:28 PM EDT

    Well, he’s certainly not getting the support of the Los Angeles Angels.

  16. Bryan Stow threw out the first pitch for the San Jose Giants home opener

    Apr 17, 2015, 11:37 AM EDT

    Screen Shot 2015-04-17 at 11.36.24 AM

    Stow used to work as an EMT at San Jose games. Good to see him back. 

  17. The Dodgers love that Yasiel Puig flips his bat

    Apr 17, 2015, 11:06 AM EDT

    Puig Bat Flip

    At least one part of the organization does.

  18. A list of the craft beers available at every ballpark. With an initial digression on snobbery and elitism.

  19. Not all teams turn their backs on players with drug problems

    Jeremy Jeffress

    A reminder that the Angels are singular in their treatment of Josh Hamilton

  20. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    John Lackey

    Dollar for dollar, this starter gives his team more value than just about anyone.
