  2. It’s time to play “Let’s Jerk Alex Gordon Around!”

    Apr 27, 2011, 7:50 PM EDT

    Alex Gordon

    So, you’re the Royals, longtime laughing stock of the AL. Your 2011 season starts with some definite promise, but a losing streak inevitably follows. Everyone in baseball knows you’re not going anywhere anyway. The goal for this season all along should have been to figure out what pieces were worth keeping around as baseball’s best…

    Apr 27, 2011, 7:05 PM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Colorado Rockies

    So much for the Marlins’ supposed interest in Mark DeRosa. The versatile veteran is headed back to the disabled list due to continued problems with his left wrist. Infield Emmanuel Burriss will replace him on the Giants roster. DeRosa is dealing with inflammation around the area on which he had surgery last summer. The 36-year-old…

    Ranger prospect Engel Beltre is in some trouble. According to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the 21-year-old outfielder has been suspended indefinitely by the Double-A Texas League for throwing a trash can at a group of fans on Tuesday night in San Antonio.

    Carlos Carrasco had hoped to avoid the disabled list after leaving Saturday’s start against the Twins with elbow soreness, but the Indians have decided to put him on the shelf when he wasn’t able to throw a scheduled bullpen session today.

    Apr 27, 2011, 4:56 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves Photo Day

    So, the major league coach who celebrity attorney Gloria Allred was going to accuse of making homophobic slurs at a fan?  It’s Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell. From TMZ: The coach in question is Atlanta Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell — who allegedly targeted a group of male fans at San Francisco’s AT&T park last weekend … asking them,…

    Apr 27, 2011, 4:40 PM EDT

    World Series Giants Rangers Baseball

    UPDATE: Texas has officially placed O’Day on the 60-day disabled list, so his season is likely in jeopardy and the Rangers’ bullpen is suddenly even shakier. ========== Darren O’Day just posted the following on Facebook: Headed to the DL for a torn labrum in my left hip. Beyond that, I don’t know much. Hopefully recovery…

  10. The Braves have a rally song that is older than most of the Braves

    Apr 27, 2011, 4:30 PM EDT

    Eddie Money.bmp

    Look, it’s not always easy being a Braves fan. Part of it is because the hard core among us have to constantly answer for the largely indifferent Atlanta fan base, their playoff-no-shows and the Tomahawk Chop.  Part of it is that whole Buffalo Bills-esque five-pennants-but-only-one-title thing (though I’d take that over what anyone besides the…

  11. Chris Coghlan leaves game with right shoulder soreness

    chris-coghlan-marlins

    Chris Coghlan left this afternoon’s game against the Dodgers with a shoulder injury, but said afterward that he expects to be back in the Marlins’ lineup following tomorrow’s off day. Joe Frisaro of MLB.com notes that Coghlan “has dealt with tendinitis in his right shoulder since spring training” and apparently the soreness simply got progressively…

  12. Livan Hernandez is the target of a money laundering probe

    Apr 27, 2011, 3:59 PM EDT

    Washington Nationals starter Livan Hernandez pitches against the Atlanta Braves during the third inning of their National League baseball game in Washington

    This is … unexpected. According to this Spanish language report — with English summary here — Livan Hernandez is the target of a federal probe related to money laundering on behalf of convicted Puerto Rican drug trafficker Angel Ayala Vázquez, known to his criminal friends as “El Buster.”  (El Buster?). Even if you don’t speak…

  13. Vicente Padilla: Dodgers’ closer

    Apr 27, 2011, 3:34 PM EDT

    Padilla_Vicente

    Ned Colletti said it was closer-by-committee. Johnathon Broxton told the media that Don Mattingly said that he was his number one guy.  We didn’t get a test of that yesterday because the Dodgers lost, but we got it today and the answer is that the committee — or maybe just Vicente Padilla — is the…

  14. Yankees sticking with Rafael Soriano in eighth inning setup role despite 7.84 ERA

    Apr 27, 2011, 3:17 PM EDT

    rafael-soriano-yankees

    Rafael Soriano had another ugly outing last night, blowing an eighth-inning lead and taking a loss while allowing two runs against the White Sox. He now has a 7.84 ERA on the season, allowing nine runs in 10.1 innings, and has already walked eight batters after issuing a grand total of just 14 free passes…

  15. UPDATE: Roy Oswalt has left the Phillies due to tornadoes near his home in Mississippi. Again.

    Apr 27, 2011, 3:03 PM EDT

    Oswalt_Roy

    3:03 PM:  The Phillies have just announced that Oswalt left the team due to concern regarding his family back home due to tornadoes in the area over the past several days.  There was some confusion on this earlier because it was almost exactly a year ago that Oswalt had to leave the Astros following the…

  17. Marlins “keeping an eye on” Giants infielder Mark DeRosa

    Apr 27, 2011, 2:44 PM EDT

    mark-derosa-giants-spring

    Mark DeRosa has just 20 plate appearances through 22 games for the Giants after missing most of last season following wrist surgery, so it makes sense that he could be on the trading block and Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that the Marlins are “keeping an eye on” him. Florida is…

  18. Andre Ethier extends his hitting streak to 24 games

    Apr 27, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Dodgers v Colorado Rockies

    Maybe we should wait until 28 — halfway to DiMaggio — before giving daily updates about Andre Ethier‘s hitting streak, but I’m in a good mood today so let’s start early: Andre Ethier hit in his 24th straight game a few minutes ago with a single back up the middle in the fourth inning of…

  19. Talking about Don Mattingly’s goatee is no longer any fun

    Apr 27, 2011, 12:50 PM EDT

    don-mattingly-dodgers

    Don Mattingly’s goatee was amusing for a brief moment earlier this week, but now the topic is just kind of sad. Mattingly said initially that he planned to keep the goatee until the Dodgers stopped winning most of their games and later reiterated that plan, saying he’d keep it against his wife’s wishes. And then…

  20. Birtherism and baseball: a classic combination

    Apr 27, 2011, 12:31 PM EDT

    Gwynn-Jr._Tony

    As you may have seen, today President Obama released his long form birth certificate in an effort to shut up the loony fringe who decided to use the citizenship issue to attack him as Some Horrible Other, seeing as though open racism and xenophobia is off the table in polite society these days.  There are…
