    Sep 21, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    According to the Chicago Tribune the FBI has arrested Sami Samir Hassoun and charged the 22-year-old Lebanese man with “plotting to bomb a strip of crowded Wrigleyville night spots around the time people were leaving a Dave Matthews concert at the ballpark over the weekend.” Hassoun “was arrested as he placed a backpack containing what…

  2. Which teams will fire their managers this offseason?

    Sep 21, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    How many skipper openings will their be this year? Five? Ten? I’ll go with eight.

  3. Finally! Chris Carter gets first hit after starting career 0-for-33

    Sep 21, 2010, 11:49 AM EDT

    It still isn’t very pretty, but .029 sure looks a lot better than .000 for Chris Carter. After beginning his career in a brutal 0-for-33 slump that included 13 strikeouts, Carter finally delivered his first hit last night with a sharp single to left field off White Sox reliever Scott Linebrink. And then the A’s…

  4. Quote of the Day: Matt Diaz on The Red Man

    Sep 21, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Hey look: the Braves actually hit something last night!

  5. Erick Aybar shut down for season with possible sports hernia

    Sep 21, 2010, 11:17 AM EDT

    Erick Aybar will be examined by a specialist today to determine if he has a sports hernia, but regardless of the news the Angels have shut down the shortstop for the remainder of the season. Aybar injured his groin two weeks ago, but played through the pain until last Wednesday when he aggravated things while…

  6. The Nats should have known that Carlos Alvarez wasn't who he said he was

    Sep 21, 2010, 11:04 AM EDT

    Remember that big stink in early 2009 in which the Nats gave a big signing bonus to a guy who was found out to be four years older than they thought he was?  And that he was, you know, a totally different person than they thought he was.  Boy, was that embarrassing! But it gets…

  7. Josh Hamilton visited specialist in Los Angeles for rib injury

    Sep 21, 2010, 10:47 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton hasn’t played since bruising his ribs crashing into the outfield wall on September 4 and Richard Durrett of ESPNDallas.com reports that the MVP candidate visited a specialist in Los Angeles yesterday to get another opinion on the injury. Hamilton has been completely shut down since experiencing pain while trying to take some swings…

  8. Questions swirl about the Rockies' humidor

    Sep 21, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    And by “questions swirl” I mean “lots of people are wanting to make an accusation about the Rockies messing with the humidor, but don’t have enough evidence to do so, so they phrase their accusations in the form of questions so as to make it seem like they’re not accusing anyone of anything”: The humidor…

  9. Joe Mauer to undergo MRI exam on sore left knee

    Sep 21, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    Still sore after tweaking his left knee over the weekend, Joe Mauer is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam today. Ron Gardenhire made it clear that the MRI is merely precautionary, saying team doctors “don’t expect anything” serious to be discovered, but because Mauer missed most of his rookie season in 2004 following surgery on…

  10. Andrew Bailey is shut down indefinitely

    Sep 21, 2010, 9:45 AM EDT

    And even worse than that for the A’s closer, he’s off to Alabama: Bailey, the A’s two-time All-Star closer, has been shut down for several days with elbow soreness and will see Dr. James Andrews in Alabama this week. Bailey believes the issue is the same one he had in the spring: tennis elbow. The…

  11. Gavin Floyd's season is over unless he's "200 percent"

    Sep 21, 2010, 9:19 AM EDT

    Gavin Floyd pitched really well until his last couple of starts, with those missteps being the result of some shoulder tightness. Now that the Sox are all but officially eliminated his season is over.  Well, there’s a slight chance that he could pitch again. Ozzie Guillen says that he can go on Sunday if he’s…

  12. Curtis Granderson goes crazy as the Yankees extend their lead

    Sep 21, 2010, 8:49 AM EDT

    I gave the Yankees-Rays game short shrift in the recaps this morning because (a) I was preoccupied with the Steinbrenner monument; and (b) it wasn’t exactly a drama-filled game. But one guy definitely deserves more props, and that’s Curtis Granderson. He hit two homers, walked twice, drove in five and stole a base. Granderson has…

  13. Bud Selig: George Steinbrenner is a Hall of Famer

    Sep 21, 2010, 8:24 AM EDT

    And he’s right. After all, the Hall of Fame ain’t just for people we like.

  14. And That Happened: Monday's Scores and Highlights

    Sep 21, 2010, 5:45 AM EDT

    The Phillies extend their lead to four behind another great start from Cole Hamels. But really Phils fans: there are limits to how much you can taunt after beating Brandon Beachy.

  15. Diaz helps Phillies security take down 'red man'

    Sep 21, 2010, 3:06 AM EDT

    There was more than just baseball fun in the Philadelphia Phillies’ victory over the Atlanta Braves Monday night. We also saw the debut of “red man,” a red-suited fan who ran onto the field, only to have his show end abruptly by a well-timed hip check/trip from Braves outfielder Matt Diaz. The fan, who I…

  16. Yankees unveil monument for George Steinbrenner

    Sep 20, 2010, 9:05 PM EDT

    And honestly, is anybody surprised that it’s the biggest darn plaque you’ve ever seen? The large tribute to the “The Boss” was uncovered beyond the center field fence in Monument Park by his widow Joan just a short while ago. Commissioner Bud Selig and a host of Yankees icons — including Yogi Berra, Reggie Jackson,…

  17. Joe Torre and Brian Cashman make amends

    Sep 20, 2010, 8:01 PM EDT

    Many of you just witnessed the unveiling of the George Steinbrenner monument in Monument Park. I promise I will get to that in a little bit, but we would be remiss to ignore some of the events that preceded the ceremony. Namely, that Joe Torre and Don Mattingly were in attendance and took part in…

  18. Report: White out as Diamondbacks narrow GM search

    Sep 20, 2010, 6:26 PM EDT

    According to AOL Fanhouse’s Ed Price, the Diamondbacks have ruled out Dodgers assistant GM Logan White in their hunt for a new general manager, leaving former Padres GM Kevin Towers and current interim GM Jerry DiPoto as the candidates for the job. White is very well regarded in large part for his work heading the…

  19. Dodgers fans: you do NOT want Jamie McCourt owning your team

    Sep 20, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    I’ve gotten a ton of digs in at Frank McCourt recently — and they’re legitimate digs, I think.  But while I think that McCourt mismanaged the purchase of the Dodgers and has taken a approach to his asset that is not conducive to building a strong baseball team, at least there’s a sense of competence…

  20. Comment of the Day: Scott Boras always seems to find 'em

    Sep 20, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    Reader Gobias Industries is not impressed with Scott Boras’ claim about how special Jayson Werth is: It’s amazing (albeit a bit mathematically impossible) how many once-in-a-generation talents Boras has represented this generation. I take a bit of an objection here. Boras is way too sharp to call all of his big free agents “once-in-a-generation” players.…
