  1. Brian Wilson was very Brian Wilson on “The George Lopez Show” last night

    San Francisco Giants Victory Parade

    Brian Wilson was on “The George Lopez Show” last night.  Check it out for yourself.  I think the less I say about it the better.  Just know that the fact that he’s dressed up in sea captain’s gear and has dyed his beard gray is the most normal part of it all. And if you…

  2. In which I try to talk intelligently about the 2011 Orioles

    Adam Jones, Cesar Izturis, Mike Gonzalez

    For reasons that are still not entirely clear to me, I do more guest radio spots on Balitmore’s two sports stations than I do anywhere else in the country.  Until told otherwise, I’ll chalk it up to 1570 WNST and 105.7 The Fan’s wonderful taste. But whatever the reason, my Baltimore guest spots have led…

  3. Adam Kennedy talks about his DUI

    Jan 28, 2011, 8:36 AM EDT

    Adam Kennedy, Chris Denorfia

    Usually when a public figure gets into legal trouble he makes for the bunker and doesn’t give any comments.  Adam Kennedy, however, decided that talking about his DUI arrest Wednesday night was the best policy: In a phone interview with The Associated Press on Thursday afternoon, Kennedy said he was leaving dinner with some friends…

  4. Hal Steinbrenner: the Brian Cashman stuff is “a bunch of drummed-up drama”

    Jan 28, 2011, 6:24 AM EDT

    Hal Steinbrenner

    Joel Sherman of the New York Post has an exclusive interview with Hal Steinbrenner this morning. The unequivocal upshot: there is no rift between Brian Cashman and the Yankees’ top brass: “[Cashman] and I have a great working relationship.  There is no problem, right now. I think we have had a bunch of drummed-up drama.”…

  5. The Athletics are trying to trade for Chone Figgins

    Jan 28, 2011, 6:03 AM EDT

    Chone Figgins

    The A’s have been making all kinds of upgrades this offseason. They’ve improved the offense and have made their bullpen into one of the best in the game.  They may not be done either. From the Contra Costa Times: A source with knowledge of the situation said the A’s are trying to trade for Seattle…

    2011 is going to be one big victory lap for Bert Blyleven. The Twins announced Thursday night at their annual Diamond Awards that they plan to retire his No. 28 during “Bert Blyleven Day” on July 16, prior to a game against the Texas Rangers. Blyleven will be inducted to the Hall of Fame alongside…

    Omar Minaya

    Mets owner Fred Wilpon told Ian Begley of ESPN New York earlier today that he would like former general manager Omar Minaya to remain with the organization in an advisory role. “I think Omar is a very good man and a very good person also,” Wilpon said at the Police Athletic League’s 18th annual Sportsnite…

  8. Darryl Strawberry to run to the top of Empire State Building to support cancer research

    Darryl Strawberry mets

    Two Darryl Strawberry stories in one week? Either I’m nostalgic or we need spring training to get here real soon. In all seriousness, I’m mentioning Strawberry for a very good reason this time, as he plans to run to the top of the Empire State Building to raise money for cancer research. It’s all part…

  10. The White Sox are interested in re-signing Freddy Garcia

    Jan 27, 2011, 6:33 PM EDT

    Freddy Garcia

    The White Sox have considered a few in-house options to fill the void in their starting rotation until Jake Peavy is ready to return from shoulder surgery. Now we can add another familiar face to the list. Jon Heyman of SI.com reported earlier this afternoon that the club is considering re-signing free agent right-hander Freddy…

  11. Prosecutors are worried about Roger Clemens’ lawyer

    Jan 27, 2011, 5:31 PM EDT

    Rusty Hardin

    The Roger Clemens prosecutors are asking the judge to grill Clemens to make sure he’s aware that his attorney — Rusty Hardin — may have a conflict of interest in that Hardin briefly represented Andy Pettitte back when the Mitchell Report came out.  My assumption is that the prosecutors are trying to make sure that,…

  12. Carlos Santana will be ready to go for spring training

    Jan 27, 2011, 5:02 PM EDT

    Carlos Santana

    Indians general manager Chris Antonetti told Jim Bowden that Carlos Santana will be ready for the start of spring training games. Before his ugly knee injury he hit .260/.401/.467 with six home runs, 22 RBI and an 868 OPS over his first 192 major league plate appearances.  Based on what he did in the minors,…

  13. Check out the A’s new “alternate home jerseys”

    Jan 27, 2011, 4:40 PM EDT

    a's new jerseys

    Today the A’s unveiled their new “alternate home jerseys” and Jane Lee of MLB.com snapped a picture. I might be in the minority as someone who likes the A’s usual white, green, and yellow ensemble, but these new ones are pretty hideous at first glance. Of course, we won’t realize the full scope of the…

  14. The Indians may be interested in Casey Kotchman

    Jan 27, 2011, 4:02 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Jon Paul Morosi: Indians have interest in Casey Kotchman on minor-league deal, source says. LH bat, could compete with LaPorta. Can someone please explain to me why the Indians would want Casey Kotchman to take playing time away from Matt LaPorta?  They have no money. They have the strongest imperative imaginable to get the most…

  15. No, the Nats did not inquire about Grady Sizemore and Fausto Carmona

    Jan 27, 2011, 3:33 PM EDT

    Grady Sizemore

    The other day there was a report from Phil Wood of MASN that the Nationals have had conversations with the Indians about Grady Sizemore and Fausto Carmona.  Today Buster Olney says no, that did not occur. The Nats didn’t even call the Indians, Olney says. And with that, I think we have officially reached the bottom of…

    Adam Kennedy, Chris Denorfia

    For the second time in the past two weeks a Mariners player has been arrested. First it was Milton Bradley being charged with a felony for allegedly threatening a woman and now TMZ reports that Adam Kennedy was arrested last night in California and charged with a DUI. According to the report Kennedy, who signed…

  18. Wait people do actually think Cashman is trying to get himself fired?

    Jan 27, 2011, 2:30 PM EDT

    Brian Cashman

    My “Brian Cashman is trying to get himself fired” comment from yesterday was meant as a joke. Not a good one — a bit too dry; I think I told it better on Twitter before repurposing it for the post — but I don’t honestly think that the man is trying to get canned. My…

  19. John Baker hoping to win roster spot even if he can’t catch

    Jan 27, 2011, 2:14 PM EDT

    John Baker marlins

    John Baker has just recently started soft-tossing from 45 feet following September elbow surgery and likely won’t be cleared to catch again until at least May even if he avoids setbacks, but he’s still hoping to win a spot on the Marlins’ roster coming out of spring training. He’ll be able to swing at full…

    Marlins ballpark

    Back in September we told you about the scheduling conflict between U2 and the Florida Marlins-Seattle Mariners series, which necessitated moving the series from Pro Player Robbie Whatever Stadium.  The options at the time were to play it in Puerto Rico or perhaps to move it to Vancouver or Seattle.  Well, the decision has been…
