    Jul 27, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban will decide today if he’s in or out. Is it so bad if he’s actually in?

  2. Aramis Ramirez plans to exercise $14.6 million option for 2011

    Jul 27, 2010, 11:46 AM EDT

    Asked yesterday whether he plans to remain with the Cubs next season by exercising his $14.6 million player option, Aramis Ramirez said: I want to stay here, but I’ve still got two months. I haven’t talked to my agent about it. But everybody knows I want to stay here. I guess I’m staying here. Ramirez…

  3. Voting changes could put Steinbrenner in Cooperstown in 2011

    Jul 27, 2010, 11:29 AM EDT

    The Hall of Fame Veteran’s Committee used to consider managers, umpires, executives and long-retired players every couple of years in one big lump.  Yesterday they decided to break their consideration up by era, and stagger the voting year-by-year.  The categories: Pre-Integration Era (1871-1946), the Golden Era (1947-1972) and the Expansion Era (starting in 1973). I’ll…

  4. Royals will "push" David DeJesus to play again this season

    Jul 27, 2010, 11:18 AM EDT

    David DeJesus is expected to miss 10 weeks following yesterday’s thumb surgery, but Royals manager Ned Yost said “we’re going to push him” to play again this season. According to Yost it would provide “peace of mind that he’s going to be able to be full strength next year.” Not rushing him back for some…

  5. Rhode Island Gubernatorial candidate questions Schilling's bloody sock

    Jul 27, 2010, 11:02 AM EDT

    Remember kids, you can’t spell “gubernatorial” without “guber!” Former U.S. Sen. Lincoln Chafee is questioning whether Boston Red Sox great Curt Schilling faked his bloody sock in Game 6 of the 2004 AL championship series . . . Chafee said he doesn’t know if he trusts Schilling, and incorrectly said Schilling’s own teammates questioned whether…

  6. Kerry Wood will resume closing for the Indians once healthy

    Jul 27, 2010, 10:46 AM EDT

    Indians manager Manny Acta made it clear yesterday that Kerry Wood will immediately reclaim ninth-inning when he returns from the disabled list, saying: “Whenever Kerry’s ready, he’ll close.” Wood has been sidelined since July 12 with a blister on his right index finger and wasn’t any good before landing on the shelf, going 1-4 with…

  7. On tap tonight: Strasburg vs. Heyward

    Jul 27, 2010, 10:22 AM EDT

    There are a ton of high-profile rookies this year — and actually, Jaime Garcia may be the most deserving of the NL Rookie of the Year award right now — but certainly the two most hyped rookies this season are Stephen Strasburg and Jason Heyward.  They face off tonight in Washington. It’s their first meeting,…

  8. Yankees reportedly trying to "unload" Chan Ho Park

    Jul 27, 2010, 10:14 AM EDT

    Things haven’t gone very well for Chan Ho Park this season. First he turned down a one-year, $3.25 million offer to re-sign with the Phillies only to end up with a one-year, $1.2 million deal from the Yankees. Then he posted a 5.57 ERA in 32.1 innings and spent a month on the disabled list…

  9. The Rangers were trying to get Oswalt even after they landed Lee

    Jul 27, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Nolan Ryan has a crush on Roy Oswalt, and crushes die hard.

  10. Jim Leyland is as mad as hell and he's not going to take it anymore

    Jul 27, 2010, 9:40 AM EDT

    An ump accused Leyland of spitting. My theory: there was a second spitter behind the bushes on the gravelly road.

  11. Did Joba Chamberlain just lose his job?

    Jul 27, 2010, 9:16 AM EDT

    Joe Girardi has never been a Tony La Russa kind of guy, putting relievers in and yanking them out, playing the matchups and all that jazz. Mariano Rivera is his closer. Joba Chamberlain is his setup guy. Everyone else comes in as needed. So it seems like a notable thing that Joba Chamberlain didn’t get…

  12. Chris Coghlan pulls a Kendry Morales: may miss 8 weeks for a celebration injury

    Jul 27, 2010, 8:50 AM EDT

    The Marlins announced that Chris Coghlan may miss 6-8 weeks with a torn meniscus. The funny part: he did it while attempting to smash a shaving-cream pie in the face of Wes Helms following Helms’ walkoff single on Sunday. This is a monumentally stupid way to get injured of course — even dumber than Kendry…

  13. Dan Haren smacked in the arm by a comebacker in his Angels debut

    Jul 27, 2010, 8:25 AM EDT

    Not the way Dan Haren wanted to get things started in Anaheim. The Angels’ new starter had to leave in the fifth inning after a Kevin Youkilis line drive hit him in his pitching arm.  Haren tried to catch it, he couldn’t, it smacked his arm and he went down to his knees in pain.…

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

    Jul 27, 2010, 6:08 AM EDT

    A no-no for Matt Garza and an oh no! for Dan Haren.

  15. Rickie Weeks hits 21st homer, scores run in 10th straight game

    Jul 27, 2010, 2:19 AM EDT

    Quietly having a superb season, Rickie Weeks on Monday hit his 21st homer to help the Brewers beat the Reds 3-2. The two-run shot in the bottom of the third also gave Weeks a 10th straight game with a run scored. It’s the fourth longest any player has had this season. 1. Rafael Furcal –…

  16. Seven RBI enough for Joe Mauer as Twins win 19-1

    Jul 27, 2010, 2:05 AM EDT

    Joe Mauer turned in his fourth career five-hit game and drove in a personal-best seven runs as the Twins steamrolled the Royals 19-1 on Monday night. The reigning AL MVP was 5-for-5 with a three-run homer and a double before being removed for a pinch-hitter with a runner on in the eighth. Manager Ron Gardenhire…

  17. Time for Garza to realize potential

    Jul 27, 2010, 1:33 AM EDT

    Matt Garza – to paraphrase Kevin Costner’s Crash Davis – has a gift. When he was a baby, the gods reached down and turned his right arm into a thunderbolt. On Monday, the Tampa Bay right-hander unleashed that gift on the Detroit Tigers, dazzling them with an array of high, hard fastballs and tight-spinning breaking…

  18. Matt Garza throws first no-hitter in Rays' history, fifth of 2010 season

    Jul 26, 2010, 9:49 PM EDT

    UPDATE: He did it! Matt Garza just completed the first no-hitter in Rays’ history and the fifth no-hitter of the season. He needed 120 pitches to do it, striking out six and walking just one. Because of a double-play ball in the second inning, he faced the minimum. Now that the Rays have a no-hitter,…

  19. Roy Oswalt says he is open to pitching on the East Coast

    Jul 26, 2010, 9:01 PM EDT

    What, you thought we were done with trade rumors for today? No way. Roy Oswalt told Bernando Fallas of the Houston Chronicle on Monday that he wouldn’t be opposed to pitching on the East Coast. “That’s not an issue,” Oswalt told the Chronicle on Monday. “Like I’ve said from the beginning, it’s going to have…

  20. Carlos Zambrano apologizes, just not to his teammates

    Jul 26, 2010, 8:04 PM EDT

    During an interview with ESPN’s Pedro Gomez on Monday, Carlos Zambrano apologized to Cubs fans for the June 29 tantrum that landed him on the restricted list. “It was a moment of frustration,” Zambrano said Monday in an interview with ESPN. “I was trying to fire up the team. Lee told me to shut up,…
