  1. Want a job with the Mets?

    Sep 17, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    I didn’t totally nail it down because I had to do some other stuff, but my limited research indicates that this Mets recruiting video is 100% legitimate.

  2. Erick Aybar to undergo MRI exam for possible sports hernia

    Sep 17, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    Erick Aybar was scratched from last night’s lineup with a “left leg strain,” but told Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register that the Angels’ training staff fears he may have a sports hernia. Aybar initially suffered the injury last week and has remained in the lineup since, but aggravated the injury while attempting to…

  3. Mark Buehrle admits he threw at a guy

    Sep 17, 2010, 9:47 AM EDT

    Paul Konerko got beaned in the face by Carl Pavano in the first inning of last night’s Twins-White Sox game. In the second inning, Mark Buehrle plunked Michael Cuddyer in the shoulder, no doubt because of the Konerko thing. No brawls, no ugliness, end of story and life went on. But Buehrle’s quote, when asked…

  4. Joe Posnanski, Derek Jeter and the search for meaning when there really is none

    Sep 17, 2010, 9:20 AM EDT

    When even the best sportswriter in the business whiffs on the Derek Jeter story, something significant must be going on.

  5. Ike Davis will play tonight

    Sep 17, 2010, 8:47 AM EDT

    We usually hear about Yom Kippur and baseball when the holiday impacts a Jewish player during the playoffs. This year Yom Kippur does not occur during the playoffs — it begins at sundown tonight and lasts until sunset tomorrow — and Ike Davis certainly does not have any playoff plans this year. But his team…

  6. Peter O'Malley slams the McCourts

    Sep 17, 2010, 8:22 AM EDT

    The O’Malley family owned the Dodgers for 47 years. While there are some old coots in Brooklyn who still hate them, they’re pretty much Dodgers royalty. Since selling the team the O’Malleys haven’t been terribly outspoken about the Dodgers, serving more as sources for historians, documentary filmmakers and authors and stuff than critics of the…

  7. And That Happened: Thursday's Scores and Highlights

    Sep 17, 2010, 6:00 AM EDT

    The Twins sweep the Sox. There isn’t a hotter team going.

  8. Cardinals GM: Rasmus will not be traded this offseason

    Sep 16, 2010, 10:23 PM EDT

    Cardinals GM John Mozeliak sent a message to Cardinals fans Thursday at Busch Stadium’s “Social Media Night.” That message? Colby Rasmus will not be traded this offseason. Rasmus asked for a trade earlier this season because a seemingly soured relationship with…

  9. Edinson Volquez likely a member of Reds' playoff rotation

    Sep 16, 2010, 9:11 PM EDT

    When pundits turn in their predictions in the coming weeks for this year’s version of the MLB postseason, our guess is the Reds aren’t going to be crowned as champions by many scribes. Maybe part of that has to do with…

  10. Mejia says shoulder is fine, plans to play winter ball

    Sep 16, 2010, 7:48 PM EDT

    Mets right-hander Jenrry Mejia left his Wednesday start against the Pirates in the third inning after feeling some pain in the area of his shoulder, and it was announced this morning that he will be shut down for the rest of the 2010 season. But it’s not…

  11. Lester, Kershaw and Sanchez on pace to join exclusive club

    Sep 16, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    In the 50 years since the expansion era began in 1961, just 17 different left-handers have struck out over a batter an inning while qualifying for the ERA title. This year, three of them are on pace to do it for a second year in a row. If things hold up, Clayton Kershaw, Jon Lester…

  12. Yankees to unveil Steinbrenner memorial Monday

    Sep 16, 2010, 6:10 PM EDT

    Prior to Monday’s game against the Rays, the Yankees will unveil a seventh permanent monument in Monument Park to honor George Steinbrenner, who passed away in July at age 80. Steinbrenner’s memorial will join those honoring Miller Huggins, Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio and one that commemorates the events of Sept. 11,…

  13. Andre Ethier walks back the Boston talk

    Sep 16, 2010, 5:27 PM EDT

    Speaking of the Dodgers offseason options, Andre Ethier takes issue with the talk from yesterday about how he wants to go to the Red Sox: “It’s obviously hearsay,” said Ethier. “Especially at this point, it doesn’t even make sense to comment on something like this.” I’m no lawyer, but I always heard that admissions against…

  14. Poll: Who should the Dodgers trade this offseason?

    Sep 16, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

    After reading Jon Weisman’s article breaking down the Dodgers’ payroll situation it seems pretty clear that trading Matt Kemp and/or Jonathan Broxton will be a priority in Los Angeles this offseason. Setting aside what you think the Dodgers will do, my question is what they should do … Who should the cash-strapped Dodgers trade this…

  15. More retirement gifts for Bobby Cox

    Sep 16, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    It just occurred to me that no one is getting Jerry Manuel, Ken Macha and all those guys parting gifts. Sad, really.

  16. Dodgers have tons of holes to fill and little money to fill them

    Sep 16, 2010, 4:16 PM EDT

    Jon Weisman of Dodger Thoughts put together an interesting piece breaking down the Dodgers’ projected payroll for next season, concluding that they will have spent about $90 million “before they make a single offseason move.” Obviously the Dodgers have plenty of holes to fill and because of the ugly ownership situation it’s unclear if they’ll…

  17. A majority of major league managers want expanded replay

    Sep 16, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Every time a controversial play goes down that could have been made right by instant replay, Bud Selig says they’ll study the matter, and then a few days later he says that everyone likes the status quo just fine. Not everyone. ESPN’s Jayson Stark polled 24 of the 30 major league managers and found that…

  18. Wallace Matthews: Derek Jeter; desperate cheater

    Sep 16, 2010, 3:33 PM EDT

    This morning I wondered whether one of the New York columnists or talk radio guys would use the phantom hit-by-pitch thing as a pretext for changing the Derek Jeter narrative from “Captain Perfect” to “Desperate, flawed tragedy” or something like that. It took most of the day for us to get there, but ESPN New…

  19. Must-click link: David Brown interviews the great Vin Scully

    Sep 16, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    When one of my favorite interviewers, David Brown of Yahoo! Sports, chats with the greatest announcer of all time, Dodgers legend Vin Scully, that is pretty much the definition of a must-click link: Answer Man: Vin Scully talks candy, Dodgers and Bewitched Even better, if you want to actually hear their chat and listen to…

  20. Are the Mets really going to pick a manager based on ticket sales?

    Sep 16, 2010, 3:01 PM EDT

    Heyman’s latest goes over the possible replacements for Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel.  This line stuck out at me: People within the Mets organization see ticket sales as a key issue and some opine that Valentine could be the man to re-energize the organization in that regard. It’s fun to mock the Mets from time…
