    Jul 1, 2010, 2:16 PM EDT

    What would happen if A-Rod said and did the things Pedroia does?

    Jul 1, 2010, 1:46 PM EDT

    Traded from the Yankees to the Braves this offseason in the Javier Vazquez-for-Melky Cabrera swap, 19-year-old pitching prospect Arodys Vizcaino has been placed on the Single-A disabled list after being diagnosed with a partially torn elbow ligament. He’s expected to miss six weeks, which is a tough break given how well Vizcaino was pitching with…

  4. Chase Utley had surgery this morning; could miss 5-6 weeks

    Jul 1, 2010, 1:17 PM EDT

    UPDATE: Now it’s being widely reported that Utley actually already had his surgery this morning. 12:14 P.M.: I’ve only seen this from one source so far — Peter Gammons — but if he’s right, the news is very, very bad for the Phillies: Gammons says that Chase Utley is going to require surgery on his…

  5. Ted Lilly: Zambrano wants to help the Cubs

    Jul 1, 2010, 1:12 PM EDT

    Ted Lilly must have a great cell phone plan. Unlimited minutes to call anywhere, including Greater Crazyville, where he apparently reached Carlos Zambrano: Ted Lilly became the first Cubs player to get through to Carlos Zambrano, saying the controversial pitcher wants to return to help the team in the second half of the season. “I…

    Jul 1, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    Mike Sielski of the Wall Street Journal notes that starting exactly one year from today the Mets will begin paying Bobby Bonilla an annual salary of $1.2 million … for the next 25 years. Bonilla is 47 years old, has been retired since 2001, and hasn’t played for the Mets since 1999, but when they…

  7. Count the Phillies in on Dan Haren too

    Jul 1, 2010, 12:12 PM EDT

    You can add the Phillies to the list of suitors interested in Dan Haren, joining the Nationals and the Cardinals. Indeed, Jerry Crasnick tweets that the Diamondbacks are scouting Phillies’ prospects to see what they might get in return. Haren doesn’t appear to be having his best year ever — he’s 7-6 with a 4.56…

  8. The downside of hustle: Luke Scott injured on home run trot

    Jul 1, 2010, 11:43 AM EDT

    Luke Scott may be headed to the disabled list after injuring his hamstring last night during his home run trot. Scott took Cedrick Bowers deep to left-center field in the seventh inning, but ran hard out of the box before knowing it was gone and pulled up lame after rounding first base. MLB.com has the…

  9. Comment of the Day: LeBron to the Yankees!

    Jul 1, 2010, 11:12 AM EDT

    I never thought I’d see the day when someone out-crazied baseball’s hot stove season, but King James has done that.

  10. The Nationals asked the Dbacks about Dan Haren, Edwin Jackson

    Jul 1, 2010, 10:47 AM EDT

    MLB.com’s Bill Ladson reports that the Nats, despite the fact that they’re sinking like a stone in the NL East, have inquired about the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Dan Haren and Edwin Jackson. A lot of time in the article is spent wondering if this means the Nats are buyers or sellers (in light of the Adam…

  11. The Missouri Deparment of Transportation has no love for Dan Quisenberry

    Jul 1, 2010, 10:20 AM EDT

    This is sad: in 1999, the Kansas City Royals planted a memorial tree and laid a plaque for the late, great Dan Quisenberry who died of brain cancer the year before. Yeah, about that: The tree and plaque are now gone. This after workers began work on building ramp off Interstate 70 to improve access…

  12. HBT Extra: Dysfunction Junction with Upton, Zambrano and Kemp

    Jul 1, 2010, 9:51 AM EDT

    We taped this before Matt Kemp went and pulled that 3 for 4 with a homer and three RBI game out of his butt yesterday, but at least 2/3 of the video hasn’t been overtaken by events, so enjoy!

  13. Vlad Guerrero abuses his former team

    Jul 1, 2010, 9:28 AM EDT

    If baseball teams could date, Vlad would be that girl the Angels idiotically dumped last year.

  14. The Molina trade makes sense for everyone

    Jul 1, 2010, 9:06 AM EDT

    My first thought when I saw that the Giants were unloading Bengie Molina on the Rangers last night: Wow, if the Mets had only gone multiple years and, like, ten million bucks, he could have been theirs! My next thought:  this works for everyone involved. The Giants needed to find a permanent home for Buster…

  15. The frustrated bidders have been invited to the Rangers mediation

    Jul 1, 2010, 8:44 AM EDT

    This tweet from Daniel Kaplan of SportsBusiness Journal is interesting: Breaking News: Spurned Texas Rangers bidders invited to federal mediation. Kaplan promises more details later, but my first thought is that this cuts a couple of different ways, one in which is good for team Greenberg and one that isn’t. On the one hand it…

  16. Bobby Valentine rips the Marlins on ESPN

    Jul 1, 2010, 8:22 AM EDT

    Bobby Valentine on ESPN’s “Baseball Tonight” yesterday, talking about the Marlins’ hiring process: “If this is a major-league process, I hope I’m never in the process again. It’s very disturbing, confusing and it was insulting at times, but it’s over.” The linked articles goes a bit more into the details of why he and the…

  17. And That Happened: Wednesday's Scores and Highlights

    Jul 1, 2010, 5:47 AM EDT

    There’s a Roger Miller reference in here someplace, but I link to Asleep at the Wheel’s version, because the video quality was higher.

  18. Cool simulation shows how Mariano Rivera is great

    Jul 1, 2010, 12:21 AM EDT

    We all know that Mariano Rivera is great, even at age 40. I mean, look at his line this season, it’s insane. We also know why he’s great. It’s that infernal cutter of his, which saws up more lumber than Weyerhaeuser. But I don’t think we’ve ever seen his greatness displayed in such a cool…

  19. Tony La Russa in favor of Arizona immigration law

    Jun 30, 2010, 11:50 PM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa says he is in favor of Arizona’s tough new immigration law, which would allow require police officers to stop anyone on the street and demand to see proof of citizenship if the officer has a reasonable doubt that the person is in the country illegally. Here’s what he…

    Jun 30, 2010, 10:08 PM EDT
