    May 12, 2011, 12:16 PM EDT

    New York Mets v Colorado Rockies

    Ike Davis was hopeful that he could return to the lineup after missing just a few days with his calf injury, but the Mets have placed him on the disabled list … and are now calling it a left ankle sprain and bone bruise. Calf, ankle. Same difference. To replace Davis on the roster Fernando…

    Barry Bonds Convicted Of One Count Of Obstruction Of Justice

    I know a lot of you are sick of this, but there are a bunch of lawyers who hang around here too, and this is for them. It’s an article over at The National Law Review, considering the curious nature of the Barry Bonds conviction for obstruction of justice on a question that he ultimately answered.…

    Gonzalez_Gio

    Gio Gonzalez got hit hard yesterday for the first time this season, as the Rangers knocked him out of the game with a seven-run third inning, but then it started raining in Texas and the game was called. In addition to the Rangers having a nearly guaranteed win taken off the books, all individual stats…

  4. Should the Royals lock up Eric Hosmer now?

    May 12, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Kansas City Royals v Texas Rangers

    Eric Hosmer has played exactly five games in the major leagues and has made exactly 22 plate appearances. And Sam Mellinger of the KC Star says the Royals should lock him up right now: Five games into his big-league career and he’s already batting third and drawing comparisons to Joey Votto and Adrian Gonzalez. That’s…

    May 12, 2011, 11:19 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays coach Foley separates Upton from home plate umpire Fairchild in St. Petersburg

    B.J. Upton will start serving his two-game suspension this afternoon in Cleveland and he’ll also miss tomorrow night’s game in Tampa Bay as punishment for throwing his bat and helmet following a called third strike on May 4. Upton, who will also pay a $1,500 fine, had a big series against the Orioles and a…

  6. Good news: Cano is day-to-day following his beaning (with bonus video)

    May 12, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    As Drew noted last night, Robinson Cano was hit in the head by a Nate Adcock pitch in the fifth inning of the Yankees-Royals game.  Good news this morning: Cano’s CT scan came back negative and, while he’ll probably sit out today’s series finale against the Royals, he is day-to-day and could very well be…

  7. Logan Morrison set to return from DL, so “hide ur wives & (hot) daughters”

    May 12, 2011, 10:47 AM EDT

    Logan Morrison

    Everyone’s favorite tweeting left fielder, Logan Morrison, is expected to come off the disabled list in time for tomorrow’s game, according to Marlins manager Edwin Rodriguez. Out since April 20 with a sprained foot, Morrison has made great use of his downtime by furthering his Twitter dominance over other players. For instance, here’s how he…

  8. Terry Francona fined, avoids a suspension, for his dustup with Joe West

    May 12, 2011, 10:30 AM EDT

    Terry Francona, Joe West, Angel Hernandez

    Terry Francona was tossed from last Friday’s game after arguing an Angel Hernandez balk call (Really? Angel Hernandez called a controversial balk? Shocking.)  In the course of that fracas, Francona and Joe West went at it a bit and bumped into each other several times, mostly at Joe West’s instigation, it seemed. The disciplinary verdict…

  9. Adam Lind hoping to avoid DL and rejoin lineup Friday

    May 12, 2011, 10:15 AM EDT

    lind_adam

    Adam Lind played catch prior to yesterday’s game and after receiving acupuncture and anti-inflammatory medication for his injured back the Blue Jays first baseman is hoping to rejoin the lineup Friday. That would mean avoiding the disabled list, which Lind seemed to think was unlikely as recently as Tuesday, but Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports…

    As has been suggested ever since it became clear that, yes, Jake Peavy was actually coming back, starting tomorrow, the White Sox are going to go with a six-man rotation. Today Brett Ballantini of CSN Chicago has the complete breakdown of the schedule and the White Sox’ starters’ splits on four, five and six days’…

  11. Paul Konerko: speed and defense

    May 12, 2011, 9:33 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Paul Konerko had a ridiculous night for the White Sox last night.  Check out the behind-the-back toss to get the last out of the game. Check out the leaping stab he made just before that. Dude also had an infield single and stole a base. Between the leather and the speed, it’s everything we’ve come to…

  12. Bryce Harper is simply toying with the Sally League

    May 12, 2011, 9:12 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Bryce Harper is 18-years-old. Most guys his age will just be getting drafted next month or heading to college in the fall. As such, he is painfully young to be playing full-season A-ball right now, but there he is in the Sally League. And he’s making a mockery of it. Yesterday he went 4-for-5 with a…

  13. John Lackey is not in a good place

    May 12, 2011, 8:45 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Boston Red Sox

    Before we get into this, I gotta say that the Boston Globe dropped the ball with their “Lackey shellacked” headline this morning.  Wouldn’t “shelLackeyed” have been way better?  What? Don’t look at me like that. Anyway, John Lackey was simply terrible last night, going down to his third straight defeat after allowing nine runs on nine…

  15. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Red Sox pitcher Lackey leaves the game in Toronto

    Blue Jays 9, Red Sox 3: Who is hated more in Boston right now: John Lackey or Lebron James? Probably Lackey. Dude even hates himself. His quote after the game — and I am not making this up — “Everything in my life sucks right now, to be honest with you.”  Man, way to take…

  16. Are Phillies fans — gasp! — going soft?

    May 12, 2011, 2:54 AM EDT

    Philadelphia sports fans probably get more attention and take more heat for their behavior than any group of their kind in U.S. sports. Whether it’s selling sex for World Series tickets, booing Santa Claus (and robots!) or various other acts of tomfoolery, Philly fans have built a reputation as being, well, a little bit tough.…

    Batting third in just his fifth major league game, Eric Hosmer played the hero for the Royals on Wednesday, hitting his first major league homer and delivering a sac fly in the top of the 11th as part of a 4-3 win over the Yankees. Hosmer’s fourth-inning homer gave the Royals their only run in…
