  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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,…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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.…

  12. Who's the next manager of the Blue Jays?

    Sep 20, 2010, 5:05 PM EDT

    This is not exactly the most pressing question in the baseball blabosphere these days. While we obsess about La Russa and Torre and Mattingly and Ryne Sandberg, while we wonder who the next Mets’ boss will be (“I’m standing right here!” Jerry Manuel says, “I haven’t been fired yet!”) and while Bobby Valentine is shuttled…

  13. Bobby Abreu has more 20-20 seasons than anyone outside of the Bonds family

    Sep 20, 2010, 4:48 PM EDT

    Last night Bobby Abreu reached 20 homers and 20 steals for the ninth time, which is one short of the all-time record shared by Barry Bonds and … Bobby Bonds. That a father and son are the only two players ever with double-digit 20-20 seasons strikes me as one of the more underrated amazing facts…

  14. The Astros trade Round Rock for Oklahoma City

    Sep 20, 2010, 4:32 PM EDT

    In 2010 the Astros AAA club was located in Round Rock and the Rangers club was located in Oklahoma City.  Last week the Rangers announced they’re taking over Round Rock and, a few minutes ago, the Astros announced they’re getting Oklahoma City. They’ve basically traded. I’ve never been to Oklahoma City, but Round Rock is…

  15. Scott Boras is already doing his Scott Boras thing for Jayson Werth

    Sep 20, 2010, 4:02 PM EDT

    Ken Rosenthal spoke with Scott Boras about his newest client, Jayson Werth. Say, Scott, how are going to position your free agent to-be? “He can play center field . . . He has the closing speed to play center . . . It makes your team so different. Normally you get that production out of…

  16. On second thought, Cardinals not shutting down Jaime Garcia

    Sep 20, 2010, 3:49 PM EDT

    Last week the Cardinals announced that they were shutting down Jaime Garcia in an effort to limit the 23-year-old rookie’s workload after he threw just 38 innings last season while coming back from Tommy John surgery, but now they’re apparently rethinking those plans. Garcia will be skipped in the rotation Thursday for the second straight…

  17. Jair Jurrjens scratched: Brandon Beachy to start against Philly

    Sep 20, 2010, 3:32 PM EDT

    This would seem to be a bad thing for the Braves. If so, why are Philly fans the ones worrying?

  18. "Derek Jeter lived here" may not actually help sell apartment

    Sep 20, 2010, 3:19 PM EDT

    There’s an interesting article by James Barron in the New York Times about whether or not an apartment is more likely to sell for $20 million because it was owned and lived in by Derek Jeter. Barron also talked to Tucker Anderson, who owns the apartment Joe DiMaggio lived in during his 56-game hitting streak…

  19. Justin Upton not close to returning from shoulder injury

    Sep 20, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    Justin Upton missed two weeks with a sore shoulder, rejoined the lineup for three games, and is now sidelined again by the same injury. He’s missed five straight starts and interim manager Kirk Gibson indicated that Upton is not close to returning: We’re not going to play him at this point. We’re going to make…

  20. There is no fixing the Mets until the team is sold

    Sep 20, 2010, 3:01 PM EDT

    That’s the only conclusion that can be drawn from Joe Sherman’s latest, in which he cast about big league front offices to get (anonymous) comment on the Mets’ COO. The pithy summary: Wilpon is  a “short-tempered, tone deaf credit seeker,” he’s an “accountability deflector,” a “micro-manager” and a “second-guesser.”  Oh, and he’s a bull-headed idiot…
