  1. Lenny Dykstra claims he has been tortured, abused and otherwise done wrong

    May 10, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    *Nov 24 - 00:05*

    The New York Post, abdicating most of whatever residual claim it had to being a news outlet as opposed to an entertainment outlet, decided to give recently-indicted sad sack Lenny Dykstra a column today.  You will not be at all surprised to learn that it contains all of the usual cliches one hears from recently-indicted…

  2. J.J. Hardy due back from the disabled list tonight

    May 10, 2011, 10:47 AM EDT

    J.J. Hardy

    J.J. Hardy has been out since April 10 with a strained oblique muscle, but Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Orioles’ shortstop is expected to come off the disabled list and rejoin the lineup for tonight’s game. Hardy went 2-for-9 with three walks in three games rehabbing at Triple-A and the Orioles…

    Adam Lind remained out of the Blue Jays’ lineup Monday and underwent an MRI exam on his lower back injury. For now the Blue Jays are awaiting the MRI results, but Mike Rutsey of the Toronto Sun reports that a stint on the disabled list is likely and manager John Farrell described Lind’s back spasms…

  4. Tony La Russa won’t manage the Cardinals tonight

    May 10, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Arizona Diamondbacks

    As Matthew mentioned, Tony La Russa went to have doctors check out the condition that has left his right eye swollen and painful and has left him fatigued.  The verdict: shingles, which are proving to be antibiotic resistant and which are making La Russa miserable. As a result of it, La Russa is taking tonight’s game…

  5. Frank McCourt could file for bankruptcy

    Because the Dodgers situation isn’t complicated enough, it’s probably time to throw bankruptcy into the mix: Major League Baseball is preparing for the possibility that Frank McCourt might take the Dodgers into bankruptcy court before the league could strip him of the team … The league is “looking hard” at that option, said a personal familiar with the matter…

  6. Katie bar the door: It’s Roy Halladay vs. Josh Johnson tonight

    May 10, 2011, 9:12 AM EDT

    Johnson Halladay

    I know that at 9:00 in the morning most of you are still looking back at last night’s action instead of ahead to tonight’s, but sorry, I can’t wait.  I’m rather excited about Roy Halladay and the Phillies facing Josh Johnson and the Marlins. It was a little less than a year ago when these…

  7. Some more details on the Steinbrenner stuff

    May 10, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    George Steinbrenner AP

    Yesterday there were two reports spinning out of FOIA requests related to George Steinbrenner. One dealing with his criminal conviction for campaign finance law violations and one related to his pardon request, which was supported by multiple instances of Steinbrenner assisting the FBI. Today the New York Times has more details about those things, including…

  8. A stadium plan in Las Vegas?

    May 10, 2011, 8:23 AM EDT

    Welcome to Las Vegas sign

    I’ve long been skeptical of the idea of Major League Baseball moving to Las Vegas. Mostly because I don’t see the economics working out. The economy is in the toilet. Those who do have jobs and homes that aren’t in foreclosure work a disproportionate number of nights. While there are a lot of moneyed tourists…

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

    May 10, 2011, 5:46 AM EDT

    Betancourt double play.bmp

    Brewers 4, Padres 3: Holy moley, this Yuniesky Betancourt-to-Rickie Weeks double play is the defensive play of the year so far. It’s enough to make you contemplate the nature of Yuniesky Betancourt. How someone can just do that without thinking — because he had no time to think — yet is unable to make basic plays a…

  10. Vernon Wells exits Angels game with groin strain

    May 10, 2011, 12:10 AM EDT

    Vernon Wells

    .183-hitting Vernon Wells came out of Monday night’s game against the White Sox after injuring his groin and was replaced by Howie Kendrick, with Alexi Amarista moving from second base to left field. Wells was injured while running out a grounder. It would hardly seem to be the worst thing for the Angels if Wells…

  11. Red Sox take it in 11 with Carl Crawford’s game-winning hit

    May 9, 2011, 11:22 PM EDT

    Carl Crawford, Kevin Youkilis

    Carl Crawford delivered his second game-ending hit of the month Monday as the Red Sox edged the Twins 2-1 in 11 innings. Crawford, who had been 0-for-4 in the game, doubled off the Green Monster to score pinch-runner Jose Iglesias from first base.  Iglesias was off with the 3-2 pitch with one out in the…

  12. Don Mattingly, Juan Uribe tossed from Dodgers game

    May 9, 2011, 9:49 PM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Don Mattingly was ejected for the first time as Dodgers manager after arguing that Jose Tabata trapped Juan Uribe‘s liner to left that turned into a double play in the eighth inning of the game against the Pirates. Replays confirmed that Tabata did indeed trap the ball. The score was tied 1-1 when Tabata doubled…

  13. Jake Peavy to return from disabled list for Wednesday start

    May 9, 2011, 9:30 PM EDT

    Chicago's Peavy throws against the Washington Nationals in Washington

    White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen confirmed to Mark Gonzalez of the Chicago Tribune earlier this evening that Jake Peavy will indeed return from the disabled list to start Wednesday’s game against the Angels. Peavy threw 100 pitches while giving up five runs over seven innings last Thursday in his final minor league rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte…

  14. Jenrry Mejia to undergo Tommy John surgery

    May 9, 2011, 8:20 PM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v New York Mets

    In a veritable double-whammy, the Mets also announced this evening that prospect right-hander Jenrry Mejia will undergo Tommy John surgery. According to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News, the decision was made after Mejia met with Dr. James Andrews earlier today. Team doctor David Altchek recommended surgery last week after Mejia was diagnosed with…

  15. Chris Young diagnosed with torn anterior capsule in shoulder

    May 9, 2011, 7:43 PM EDT

    chris young mets

    Sad to say it, but we all had a feeling this news was coming. Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports that Chris Young was diagnosed with an anterior capsule tear in his throwing shoulder. It’s the same injury that limited him to four starts last season — which he rehabbed — but he hasn’t decided whether…

  16. Milton Bradley is making $12 million this year

    May 9, 2011, 7:17 PM EDT

    Eric Wedge, Milton Bradley, Mike Muchlinski

    Let that sink in for a minute. Milton Bradley, a 33-year-old corner outfielder with 125 career homers and 481 RBI, is making $12 million this year. Credit Cubs GM Jim Hendry, who gave Bradley a three-year, $30 million contract after the biggest season of his career. Even though Bradley was viewed by most as a head-case with…

  17. Chris Carpenter, John Danks among winless starters

    May 9, 2011, 6:40 PM EDT

    Chris Carpenter

    11 pitchers had made at least five starts this year and are still looking for their first victories.  Here’s the list: Jeff Francis (Royals) – 0-4, 5.09 ERA in eight starts Tim Stauffer (Padres) – 0-1, 2.61 ERA in seven starts John Danks (White Sox) – 0-5, 3.83 ERA in seven starts Chris Carpenter (Cardinals)…

  18. Josh Willingham suspended one game for run-in with ump

    May 9, 2011, 6:22 PM EDT

    Josh Willingham, Bill Miller

    Athletics left fielder Josh Willingham was handed down a one-game suspension on Monday for some “inappropriate conduct” in Saturday’s game against the Royals. Willingham made contact with umpire Bill Miller while arguing a called third strike in the eighth inning of the game.  Willingham, who said Miller initiated the contact, appealed the suspension and is…

  19. Carlos Peguero, Michael Wilson won’t make difference for Mariners

    May 9, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    Conor Jackson, Carlos Peguero

    Change is good in this case, but the Mariners’ on-field product isn’t likely to be improved by the decision Monday to cut Milton Bradley and Ryan Langerhans and add Carlos Peguero and Michael Wilson. The 24-year-old Peguero is big, strong and surprisingly fast, but he also struck out more than 170 times in high-A ball…

  20. Earl Weaver is auctioning off a ton of memorabilia

    May 9, 2011, 5:35 PM EDT

    Earl Weaver, Juan Samuel

    Whenever I hear about a baseball figure auctioning off stuff I worry that they’re broke or something, but in this day and age it’s more likely that they’re merely trying to simplify their estate plan.  That seems to be the case with longtime Orioles’ manager Earl Weaver, who is auctioning off all kinds of things:…
