  1. Chicago woman sues over backwards White Sox tattoo

    Oct 8, 2010, 1:49 PM EDT

    Three months ago Eugenia Bebis went into Mystic Tattoo Art and Body Piercing in Chicago looking to get the White Sox’s logo tattooed on her outer thigh. Yesterday she filed a lawsuit against the tattoo parlor and artist Micah St. John because … well, he put the logo on backwards. In the suit the 20-year-old…

  2. HBT Daily: Do the Reds, Braves, Rays and Twins have a chance?

    Oct 8, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Tiffany and I thought about tackling the blown call in the Braves-Giants game, but I ran out of Prozac.

  3. Astros exercise 2012 option on manager Brad Mills, add 2013 option to contract

    Oct 8, 2010, 1:18 PM EDT

    Brad Mills went 76-86 in his first season as Houston’s manager, including 40-33 in the second half for the NL’s fourth-best record after the All-Star break, and today the Astros picked up his 2012 option while adding a 2013 option to his contract. Houston looked like the worst team in baseball through about one-third of…

  4. Scouts from 21 teams watched Brandon Webb pitch in an instructional league game yesterday

    Oct 8, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    Brandon Webb had a rough outing in an instructional league game yesterday, allowing two runs in two innings, and John Tomase of the Boston Herald reports that scouts from 21 teams were on hand to watch the rehabbing right-hander. As an impending free agent it may have been Webb’s final outing in a Diamondbacks uniform…

  5. Sure, the Mets' new GM will have full autonomy

    Oct 8, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    CBS Sports.com’s Danny Knobler reports something fun: despite saying that the Mets’ new general manager will have full autonomy, the team has told current scouts that they’ll know about their future next week. Which, as Knobler notes, is before a new GM will be in place. I guess it’s possible that there’s a musical chairs…

  6. Charlie Manuel's barber saw both Don Larsen's perfecto and Halladay's no-hitter

    Oct 8, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    You guys are familiar with my Charlie Manuel-as-throwback fixation. I truly believe that he was sent here from, say, the late 40s, by some benevolent scientists in order to save us from ourselves. Sort of a reverse “Quantum Leap.” I’m certain he has vast stashes of fresh beer made by breweries that haven’t existed in…

  7. Padres CEO says long-term deal for Adrian Gonzalez "doesn't appear to be practical from a financial standpoint"

    Oct 8, 2010, 11:46 AM EDT

    Padres chief executive officer Jeff Moorad told Tim Sullivan of the San Diego Union Tribune that next season’s payroll will likely be in the $40 million range again. And when asked about Adrian Gonzalez’s short-term status he replied: “At this point, I expect him to be on our roster next season.” However, the CEO wasn’t…

  8. Frank McCourt is back in charge of the Dodgers' baseball operations

    Oct 8, 2010, 11:29 AM EDT

    Let us chronicle the recent history of the position of President of the Los Angeles Dodgers: First Jamie McCourt was the President. She occupied herself, apparently, with questionable charitable endeavors, spending money on stuff that is plain loopy and hatching even loopier schemes to elevate herself to the office of President of the United States.…

  9. Report: Terry Ryan "has no interest" in being Mets' GM

    Oct 8, 2010, 11:18 AM EDT

    Bob Nightengale of USA Today, who’s typically pretty tapped into the Twins, reports that former Minnesota general manager Terry Ryan “has no interest in going to New York as the Mets’ general manager.” However, he adds that Ryan “will take a look” if a GM job for a “Midwest” team opens up. Ryan stepped down…

  10. Jeff Moorad kinda sorta throws Jed Hoyer under the bus

    Oct 8, 2010, 10:59 AM EDT

    Jeff Moorad was really polite about it, but don’t these comments about the Padres passing on Pat Burrell hang Padres’ GM Jed Hoyer out to dry? “In retrospect, I wish I’d done more than relay Pat Burrell’s interest in coming here.” Moorad said Thursday afternoon. “I’m not going to tell Jed what to do and…

  11. Rod Carew picked a convenient time to "boycott the Hall of Fame" on Bert Blyleven's behalf

    Oct 8, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    Rod Carew, who was inducted into Cooperstown in 1991, said earlier this week that he’ll “boycott the Hall of Fame” if Bert Blyleven “doesn’t get in this year” during his 14th appearance on the ballot. That’s a very nice gesture by a former teammate, but also one that would have been far more meaningful a…

  12. The Astros are installing a gigantic new video board

    Oct 8, 2010, 9:46 AM EDT

    Coming soon to Minute Maid Park: kiss cams in even larger, higher-definition! The new primary video board will be located in right field and will measure 54 feet high and 124 feet wide, making it the second-largest board of its kind in the Major Leagues. The Astros current video board is 26 feet high and…

  13. We know Hunter Wendelstedt was bad last night, but how bad was he?

    Oct 8, 2010, 9:21 AM EDT

    Pretty darn bad!  Jeff Passan — citing Brooks Baseball’s chart of last night’s game — notes that Wendelstedt missed 31 ball-strike calls on Thursday. In the two other games, the umps missed 21 calls combined. Passan nails it: This is not normal. It is not close. In the Atlanta-San Francisco game Thursday, Dana DeMuth missed…

  14. Deep Thoughts: Lance Berkman is a Yankee

    Oct 8, 2010, 8:58 AM EDT

    Lance Berkman went 2 for 4 with a double, a homer and two RBI in a playoff game last night.  Quick: can someone get Jeff “some players aren’t meant for New York and Lance Berkman is one of them” Perleman or Joel “going from the Astros to the Yankees is like going from the Ivy…

  15. You're not alone: the players are fed up with the umps too

    Oct 8, 2010, 8:25 AM EDT

    The players, the league and the umps having some sort of sit-down is a great idea! So I fully expect it to go nowhere.

  16. And That Happened: Division Series Edition

    Oct 8, 2010, 6:07 AM EDT

    A picture is worth 1000 words. So, between that pic to the left and my rantings in this post, you’ve got 1,599 words to get through.

  17. Lincecum fans 14 batters, Giants coast to Game 1 victory

    Oct 7, 2010, 11:59 PM EDT

    It wasn’t a no-hitter, but Tim Lincecum was about as dominant as it gets on Thursday night in San Francisco as the Giants captured Game 1 of the NLDS against the Braves. Racking up a postseason franchise record 14 strikeouts over nine innings of work, the 26-year-old from Bellevue, Washington…

  18. Giants get on the board in the fourth, lead Braves

    Oct 7, 2010, 11:01 PM EDT

    Hey, someone scored a run in San Francisco! Giants catcher Buster Posey led off the bottom of the fourth inning with a single off Braves starter Derek Lowe. Pat Burrell struck out swinging in the next at-bat, to nobody’s surprise, but Posey…

  19. Giants and Braves all square in NLDS Game 1

    Oct 7, 2010, 10:27 PM EDT

    This one is moving along as planned. A run-down here, a walk or two there, but mostly just good pitching. Giants starter Tim Lincecum has six strikeouts through four innings and has allowed just one hit and one walk in Thursday’s…
