  1. Jarrod Saltalamacchia hospitalized for lower leg infection

    Aug 19, 2010, 5:18 PM EDT

    Jarrod Saltalamacchia may have conquered his throwing problems at Triple-A, but it took him only a week with the Red Sox to get hit with the same injury bug that has tried to wreck Boston’s season. Saltalamacchia, who was acquired from the Rangers on July 31 and called up from Triple-A last week, has been…

  2. Did Jose Canseco flip on Roger Clemens?

    Aug 19, 2010, 5:03 PM EDT

    You may remember that one of the big points of contention in Roger Clemens’ hearing before Congress was whether or not he was at a party at Jose Canseco’s house back in 1998 during which steroids were discussed. McNamee said Clemens was there. Clemens said he was not. Jose Canseco has long backed Clemens, saying…

  3. Royals owner denies rumors that he's trying to sell team

    Aug 19, 2010, 4:49 PM EDT

    Royals owner David Glass denied rumors that he’s attempting to sell the team, telling Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star: I have never ever talked to anyone about selling the club. Period. I have never had a discussion with anyone about it and I have no interest in doing so. Dutton chalks up the…

  4. Document shows that Jamie McCourt does too own the Dodgers

    Aug 19, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Recently there has been some noise about Jamie and Frank McCourt settling their divorce case and Frank buying Jamie out. A lot of this is likely borne of a desire to avoid a nasty trail that would likely have a lot of stuff about people sleeping with people who weren’t their spouse at the time…

  5. Lou Gehrig finished "a triple short of the cycle" 42 times

    Aug 19, 2010, 4:16 PM EDT

    This morning I suggested that hitters finishing “a triple short of the cycle” isn’t nearly as noteworthy as baseball writers like me seem to think, as it’s happened 172 times already this season. I figured that alone was stretching the limits of reader interest, but apparently not. A few of you actually asked about the…

  6. Why DNA evidence doesn't sink Clemens

    Aug 19, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    In response to my post regarding the problems the prosecution may have convicting Clemens, reader Anthony E. emailed me and basically asked why does anyone care about McNamee’s credibility if the feds have DNA evidence related to Clemens and PEDs (which they do). Good question! And, as I noted over a year ago, it actually…

  7. Rich Harden impresses in first start of latest rehab assignment

    Aug 19, 2010, 3:48 PM EDT

    Placed on the disabled list last week with shoulder tendinitis, Rich Harden made his first rehab start yesterday at Triple-A and racked up 10 strikeouts in six innings. He allowed just an unearned run on three hits and three walks. For now Derek Holland has taken his spot in the Rangers’ rotation, but both are…

  8. Blogger? Writer? What exactly do I do all day?

    Aug 19, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    A bit of meta navel gazing to cleanse the palate after a couple hours worth of Roger Clemens stuff.

  9. Tony Gwynn Jr. likely to miss rest of season with broken hand

    Aug 19, 2010, 3:17 PM EDT

    Tony Gwynn Jr. has started 70 of 119 games in center field for the Padres, but they’ll likely be without him for the rest of the season thanks to a broken hamate bone in his right wrist. Gwynn has been one of the worst hitters in the league, batting just .212/.313/.299 in 327 plate appearances,…

  10. What does the indictment do for Clemens' Hall of Fame case?

    Aug 19, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    I only pose this question because someone will ask it, and I’ll be damned if I don’t have to have all the answers.  Short version: this shouldn’t matter a lick. As we recently discussed when A-Rod hit his 600th home run, there are some Hall of Fame voters who will never, ever vote for a…

  11. Concussion from Johnny Cueto kick sends Jason LaRue to 60-day disabled list

    Aug 19, 2010, 2:45 PM EDT

    Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto received a seven-game suspension for kicking Chris Carpenter and Jason LaRue in the head during a benches-clearing incident with the Cardinals last week, meaning he missed just one start. His kicks, however, will have a much more lasting impact on LaRue, who hasn’t played since then because of a concussion and…

  12. So, will Clemens get convicted?

    Aug 19, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

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

  13. Roger Clemens brought this on himself

    Aug 19, 2010, 1:47 PM EDT

    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.

  14. Cardinals get Pedro Feliz from Astros for minor leaguer

    Aug 19, 2010, 1:43 PM EDT

    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…

  15. Roger Clemens indicted on federal charges

    Aug 19, 2010, 12:53 PM EDT

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

  16. Andy Pettitte unlikely to return before mid-September

    Aug 19, 2010, 12:49 PM EDT

    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…

  17. Vin Scully meets the mullet

    Aug 19, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

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

  18. Brad Hawpe looking for job with contender following release

    Aug 19, 2010, 12:18 PM EDT

    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…

  19. HBT Daily: Derrek Lee, the Reds and my favorite Earl Weaver quote

    Aug 19, 2010, 11:59 AM EDT

    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

  20. Lance Berkman placed on disabled list with ankle injury

    Aug 19, 2010, 11:49 AM EDT

    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…
