  1. Jonathan Papelbon doesn't think Yankees-Red Sox games are too long. He's wrong.

    Mar 26, 2010, 10:48 AM EDT

    The Red Sox and Yankees average game times are the two longest in baseball, and when the two of them get together, forget it. Major League Baseball has asked the teams to try and move things along, but Jonathan Papelbon — asked about the issue by WEEI’s Rob Bradford — doesn’t understand why anyone thinks…

  2. Pujols in Royal blue, Mets pinstripes

    Mar 26, 2010, 10:35 AM EDT

    This morning I talked about how much fun it would be to see Pujols photoshopped into Royals and Mets jerseys. Ask, and ye shall receive, courtesy of my friends at Tauntr. I like the Royals one. With the crooked hat it’s like Pujols went all thug after signing with K.C. He’s from there so maybe,…

  3. It's official: Jason Heyward will break camp with the Braves

    Mar 26, 2010, 10:20 AM EDT

    Great news for Braves fans and even better news for Jason Heyward: Bobby Cox told Heyward this morning that he has made the team.  He’ll presumably be the everyday right fielder. Matt Diaz, Melky Cabrera and Nate McLouth can figure out center and left among themselves. Heyward was already the number one prospect in baseball…

  4. Braves minor leaguer caught in prostitution sting

    Mar 26, 2010, 9:59 AM EDT

    When I saw the headline all I could do was to think “Please don’t be Jason Heyward! Please don’t be Jason Heyward!”  Then I remembered that it’s all but certain that Heyward will officially break camp with the big club, thus isn’t really a minor leaguer and everything was alright again.  Well, not for this…

  5. Jeter wants to be an owner

    Mar 26, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    The whole Jeter-as-owner thing is no longer the exclusive province of the New York tabloid writers. The Captain is totally into it. Except he does not simply want a chunk of non-controlling stock or something. He wants to do it Michael Jordan-style. Says Jeter: “The only interest I have in ownership is to be able…

  6. Springtime Storylines: Can anyone on the White Sox hit the ball over the fence?

    Mar 26, 2010, 8:55 AM EDT

    Between now and Opening Day, HBT will take a look at each of the 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2010 season.  Next up: The Ozzie Guillen Show The big question: Can anyone hit the ball over the fence? This is a pretty punchless…

  7. Pujols-Cardinals talks tabled until winter

    Mar 26, 2010, 8:29 AM EDT

    Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that “the possibility of extension for Pujols before ’10 season has evaporated,” with talks being tabled until after this season. This is not really Earth-shattering news. Talks hadn’t really even gotten going yet, and everyone was well-aware that Pujols had no desire to negotiate during the season.…

  8. Good morning!

    Mar 26, 2010, 7:57 AM EDT

    Someone needs to sign this dude, stat.  They should probably sign the guy in the red jacket too.

  9. Angels GM: Locker to play baseball this summer

    Mar 26, 2010, 1:03 AM EDT

    Since the Los Angeles Angels drafted University of Washington quarterback Jake Locker in the 10th round of the draft last summer, the assumption has been that the Angels were merely taking a gamble on the talented athlete in case a career in the NFL didn’t pan out. Locker was seen as a potential first round…

  10. Report: Giants ink closer Wilson to extension

    Mar 26, 2010, 12:32 AM EDT

    According to a report on, the Giants have inked right-handed closer Brian Wilson to a contract extension. The report gives few details, but former beat writer Mychael Urban heads the network’s online baseball coverage and he’s among the best in the business.  It’s probably safe to call this one legit.  Wilson, 28, had…

  11. A's Sheets roughed up by minor leaguers

    Mar 25, 2010, 11:49 PM EDT

    The Associated Press reported that Ben Sheets got his world rocked again on Thursday, this time by some minor leaguers in a game in Phoenix. Oakland’s prized free-agent signee, who has struggled mightily this spring, allowed three runs and nine hits in six-plus innings. His changeup was poor, and he allowed several hard-hit balls, including…

  12. Lee injured when chair folds like a Cub

    Mar 25, 2010, 11:03 PM EDT

    It’s not quite worthy of being added to this list of wacky baseball injuries, but Chicago Cubs first baseman Derrek Lee hurt his back in a freak accident on Wednesday, courtesy of some faulty furniture, according to the Chicago Tribune. “He was eating before the game and the chair just collapsed on him,” manager Lou…

  13. Burriss undergoes foot surgery, out 10 weeks

    Mar 25, 2010, 9:54 PM EDT

    According to Andrew Baggarly of San Jose Mercury News, Giants infielder Emmanuel Burriss had a screw inserted into his left foot last weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina and is expected to sit idly for the next 10 weeks. “We determined this was the best route for Manny,” Giants trainer Dave Groeschner said Thursday. “Not just…

  14. Quote of the Day: Mike Krzyzewski

    Mar 25, 2010, 9:28 PM EDT

    Duke men’s basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski, speaking with the Chicago Tribune on the pressure of living up to his past success in the NCAA tournament: “For a while when I dated my wife, I had trouble living up to the expectations of her former boyfriend. Just judge people for who they are right now. We’re…

  15. Martin catches four innings of minor league game

    Mar 25, 2010, 8:03 PM EDT

    Russell Martin, slowed early in camp by a pulled groin, caught four innings of a minor league game on Thursday and reported no pain or discomfort, according to the Los Angeles Times’ Dylan Hernandez. The outing went so well, in fact, that he’s already slated to catch six innings of a Triple-A exhibition game on…

  16. Mets, Dodgers are thinking about Chad Gaudin

    Mar 25, 2010, 6:45 PM EDT

    The same day the Yankees released him, word is that both the Mets and the Dodgers are “talking about” Chad Gaudin. The Diamondbacks, who probably need a pitcher worse than either of those two teams, are not in.  Gaudin’s former team — Oakland — isn’t interested either. No word if those are real discussions or…

  17. Brett Myers hurts his groin

    Mar 25, 2010, 6:15 PM EDT

    Brett Myers faced his phormer Philly teammates today, the phirst time he did so since signing with the Astros. Unfortunately for him he had to leave the game with a strained groin. He’s going to be reevaluated Friday. He doesn’t think it’s serious. As a professional sportswriter I am obligated to say that he “tweaked”…

  18. Why everyone hates the Yankees

    Mar 25, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

    This article actually examines why everyone hates Duke, but the theories — and there are many of them — are broad and philosophical as opposed to dealing with specific players and personalities, and just about all of the reasons apply equally to the Yankees. I think I like this one: I think the reward is…

  19. Milton Bradley: "If I was a musician, I'd be Kanye West"

    Mar 25, 2010, 5:15 PM EDT

    Milton Bradley: “If I was a musician, I’d be Kanye West. If I was in the NBA, I’d be Ron Artest. In baseball, they’ve got Milton Bradley. I’m that guy. You need people like me, so you can point your finger and go, ‘There goes the bad guy.’” I’m going to go out on a limb…

  20. Alex Gordon to begin season on disabled list

    Mar 25, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

    Alex Gordon broke his right thumb on March 6 and manager Trey Hillman admitted yesterday that the Royals’ third baseman will begin the season on the disabled list. Gordon initially received a recovery timetable of 3-4 weeks, which gave him some chance to be ready for Opening Day, but Hillman explained that “it’s not going…
