The Feds’ convict 90% of the people they indict, but I think Clemens has a decent chance of beating this thing.

We can argue about whether Congress should have been involved in the steroids mess to begin with, but the fact is that they were, and Roger Clemens deserves a lot of the blame for that.

St. Louis’ efforts to land a replacement for the injured David Freese at third base must not have gone very well, because they just sent pitching prospect David Carpenter to the Astros for Pedro Feliz. Once an excellent defender with good power that combined to make up for terrible on-base skills, Feliz has been one…

Roger Clemens is going to be indicted by a federal grand jury for lying to Congress. Possibly as early as today.

Andy Pettitte suffered a setback in his recovery from a strained groin while throwing a bullpen session Tuesday and an MRI exam taken afterward showed that the injury hasn’t healed as quickly as hoped. Wallace Matthews of ESPNNewYork.com reports that he “will not be ready to return to the mound until the first week of…

A mullet is business in the front, party in the rear. Vin Scully, on the other hand, is all business.

Brad Hawpe was informed before yesterday’s game that it would be his last with the Rockies and the veteran outfielder delivered a pinch-hit single in a 3-2 win before being released just hours later. Hawpe cleared waivers earlier this week, but the Rockies were apparently unable to find a trade partner and decided to simply…

Like I said yesterday: I ain’t thrilled with the Derrek Lee trade. But he sure beats trotting the corpse of Troy Glaus out there each day

This morning Lance Berkman told reporters that he felt good enough to play through the ankle injury that knocked him out of Sunday’s game and has kept him out of the lineup since, but the Yankees have decided to place him on the disabled list anyway. Joe Girardi said Berkman’s injury “hadn’t progressed quite as…

Hurt? Out of synch? Pining for the fjords? Maybe he just misses his old catcher.

Joe Mauer remained red hot last night, going 4-for-5 with a homer and a double as the Twins extended their AL Central lead to five games, and afterward various reports about the game noted how the reigning MVP finished “a triple short of the cycle.” That phrase appears constantly in game stories throughout every season…

Can someone as sensitive about his privacy as Jayson Werth seems to be survive in the Big Apple?
Carlos Gonzalez hung onto the ball and escaped with merely a bruised knee after full-speed wall collision

Last night the Rockies beat the Dodgers in extra innings thanks in large part to Carlos Gonzalez’s exceptional catch in the sixth frame. With a runner on first base Casey Blake sent a Jason Hammel pitch deep into the gap in right-center field, but Gonzalez sprinted after it and made the grab inches from the…

J.P. Arencibia had one of the best debuts in baseball history on August 7, going 4-for-5 with two homers after being called up from Triple-A to replace the injured John Buck. Arencibia is one of the best catching prospects in baseball and the 24-year-old former first-round pick is definitely Toronto’s catcher of the future, but…

It takes a lot to get David Wright out of the linuep, so it’s pretty safe to say that whatever it was that caused him to check out of last night’s game in Houston was serious: “Something came on about the fourth or fifth inning,” Wright said. “I felt real nauseous and just throwing up…

It was promised and expected and last night it happened: the Players’ Association filed a grievance against the Mets over him being placed on the disqualified list and for deeming his contract non-guaranteed. You’ve heard me go on and on about this so I won’t bore you with that again. But how telling is it…

There goes all of that crazy Wes Helms speculation I was looking forward to at this year’s Winter Meetings: The Florida Marlins have signed third baseman Wes Helms to a $1 million, one-year contract extension through the 2011 season. The Marlins generally don’t sign players to extensions during the season, but have been talking to…

I missed this when I was doing the recaps, but the ending of the Dodgers-Rockies game was pretty nifty. Well, if you were a Rockies fan or if you like to rag on third base coaches and stuff. Bottom of the 10th, two down, Dodgers down by a run. Reed Johnson was on first base…

Ozzie Guillen didn’t want a DH this season. His DH from last season killed the Sox on Tuesday night. Let’s see how Ozzie responds to questions about that!
