    On the first day of spring training, man. Talking about getting off on the wrong foot.

  2. Hiroki Kuroda says his years in the majors were “tougher than they were enjoyable”

    This describes any given seven-year stretch in most of our lives, though, right?

  3. Miguel Cabrera has been cleared for “limited baseball activity”

    Miguel Cabrera

    It’s still possible that the Tigers’ slugger will be ready for Opening Day.

  4. A scorching-hot A-Rod take reveals Mike Lupica’s ridiculousness, ignorance and simple cruelty

    Feb 18, 2015, 2:56 PM EST


    I’d never expect a reasoned or measured response from Mike Lupica. But you’d think he’d at least aspire to basic human decency.

  5. Remembering the team owner who moved his team to get away from black people

    Calvin Griffith

    There are pieces of work. Then there was Calvin Griffith.

  6. Tim Lincecum is the Giants’ fifth starter

    Feb 18, 2015, 1:07 PM EST

    Tim Lincecum

    It was thought he’d compete for the fifth slot. Today Bruce Bochy made it sound like the job is his.

  7. Andy Pettitte: “I don’t really believe I tried to enhance my performance”

    This defense seems to work for Andy Pettitte when it does not work for any other PED guy.

  8. Wanna buy Gene Tenace’s six World Series rings?

    And a lot of his other stuff too?

    That’s not about cheating in baseball. Not by damn sight.

    Many have already reported. Here are the deadlines for pitchers and catchers for all 30 teams.

  11. The Orioles are close to signing Everth Cabrera

    He’s no one you want for millions a year, but on a cheap deal on the eve of spring training? Not too shabby a pickup.

  12. Let’s pump the brakes on the Pablo Sandoval waistline watch, OK?

    Feb 18, 2015, 8:28 AM EST

    Pablo Sandoval

    Is it possible Pablo Sandoval is out of shape? Sure. But maybe we should wait for the Red Sox to say so before slamming the guy.

  13. A-Rod derangement watch: handwriting analysis edition

    Alex Rodriguez Reuters

    A newspaper which has won 34 Pulitzer Prizes turns to wholly discredited pseudoscience.

  14. Minor leaguers suing baseball over unfair labor practices get a small victory

    If you’re suing your employer, it’s better to be in California than Florida. Minor leaguers suing baseball get to sue their employer in California.

  15. Please allow me to tell you what to think about Alex Rodriguez’s apology

    Note: I did not hire a handwriting expert nor attempt to gauge another person’s sincerity in the composition of this post.

  16. Alex Rodriguez issues an apology to fans

    Feb 17, 2015, 1:18 PM EST

    Alex Rodriguez

    There. Now that’s all done and we can move on.

  17. A.J. Ellis is in The Best Shape of His Life

    Feb 17, 2015, 12:57 PM EST


    Not really, but we’re glad to see he’s on Team BSOHL

  18. The Bob Feller Museum is closing due to lack of interest

    Feb 17, 2015, 10:09 AM EST

    Bob Feller

    It was one of only three player-specific museums left.

  19. Let’s play “Baseball Mortality”

    Feb 17, 2015, 7:50 AM EST

    Chicago Cubs v Colorado Rockies

    Who was the first big leaguer younger than you? Who was — or will be — the last one older than you?

  20. Joel Hanrahan still has soreness in his arm

    Feb 16, 2015, 5:30 PM EST

    Joel Hanrahan

    It’s been over two years since Hanrahan was healthy and effective.

  21. A-Rod reached out to Chase Headley

    Feb 16, 2015, 5:00 PM EST

    alex rodriguez head

    To hit him with a crow bar or something, I’m sure! Because he’s A-Rod and he’s evil and . . . oh well, you know how this goes by now.

  22. Chuck Knoblauch is apparently irked at Andy Pettitte getting his number retired

    Feb 16, 2015, 3:48 PM EST


    He does not, however, exactly occupy the moral high ground.

  23. The snow in Fenway Park is pretty incredible

    If you haven’t heard from your friend in Boston lately, it’s because he or she is buried in snow. Just like Fenway Park.
