  1. Kurkjian: Marlins will offer Valentine a four-year deal

    Jun 24, 2010, 7:22 PM EDT

    If Peter Gammons’ word isn’t enough to convince the HBT readership that Bobby Valentine is days away from being named the Marlins’ next manager, this might do the trick: According to’s Tim Kurkjian, the Fish will offer Bobby V. a lucrative four-year contract after he is interviewed on Friday night in south Florida.  Valentine…

  2. Gallardo, Brewers take down the Twins

    Jun 24, 2010, 5:40 PM EDT

    Yovani Gallardo and the Brew Crew stifle the stumbling Twins

  3. The Marlins sign . . . Armando Benitez?!

    Jun 24, 2010, 5:13 PM EDT

    That was . . . unexpected.

  4. Gammons: expect to see Bobby V. join the Marlins

    Jun 24, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Peter Gammons’ tweets are sometimes hard to read. Are the bits of newsy info or just his gut feeling?  He’s Gammons, though, so he gets some benefit of the doubt.  His latest: “I wouldn’t be surprised if Bobby Valentine were in the Marlins dugout by the end of the weekend.” That’s not the farthest anyone…

  5. OK, maybe Charlie wasn't trying to escape the heat

    Jun 24, 2010, 4:10 PM EDT

    Maybe he was trying to escape the Hellacious storm that just blew threw Citizens Bank Park. Seriously, check out that pic and be thankful that you’re not there. Unless you are there and are reading this on your phone, in which case what the hell, dude? The Phillies are up 12-3 in the eighth, so…

  6. Rangers win 10 in a row, so GM agrees to dye his hair

    Jun 24, 2010, 3:48 PM EDT

    A couple weeks ago Rangers general manager Jon Daniels was poking a little fun at Elvis Andrus’ bleached-blond hair, so the 21-year-old shortstop asked how many games in a row the team would have to win for the GM to dye his hair. Daniels told him 10, because he “figured the odds of that were…

  7. Three Indians' prospects, including Brad Mills' son, charged with felonious assault

    Jun 24, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    Three Cleveland Indians’ minor leaguers — Beau Mills, Jerad Head, and Josh Tomlin — were charged with felonious assault on Tuesday following an investigation into “an altercation” that took place at an Akron apartment on June 3. The victim reportedly suffered serious injuries due to the assault. Mills is not only a prospect — he…

  8. Rangers' bankruptcy hearing postponed, but that may not be a big deal

    Jun 24, 2010, 3:10 PM EDT

    The next act in the Rangers’ bankruptcy drama was set for July 9th, but Daniel Kaplan of Sports Business Journal just reported that the hearing set for that date has been postponed until July 22nd.  The most important date for baseball purposes, however, is July 31st, which is the trade deadline. Does this delay put…

  9. Red Sox placing Mike Lowell on disabled list to make room for Daisuke Matsuzaka's return

    Jun 24, 2010, 2:47 PM EDT

    Daisuke Matsuzaka is returning from the disabled list for tonight’s start against the Rockies and Rob Bradford of reports that the Red Sox will make room for him on roster by placing Mike Lowell on the DL. Perhaps his surgically repaired hip has been problematic of late or perhaps Lowell has just fallen so…

  10. My managerial ejection conspiracy theory

    A mid-day’s daydream about why Charlie Manuel just got ejected from the Phillies-Indians game,

  11. Cliff Lee throws complete game as Mets and Twins reportedly emerge as trade talk 'frontrunners'

    Jun 24, 2010, 1:46 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee was brilliant again last night as rumors continue to swirl about his time in Seattle winding down, holding the Cubs to one run in a complete-game victory that lowered his ERA to a league-best 2.39. Lee missed most of April, yet leads the league with four complete games (including two shutouts) and has…

  12. Carl Crawford leaves Rays-Padres game early

    Jun 24, 2010, 1:24 PM EDT

    UPDATE: Of course, two minutes after I hit “post” on this bad boy word comes down: Crawford has a sore shoulder. Not sure why it’s sore. I won’t even speculate, because the minute I do someone will say it was for some other reason. Upshot: Crawford is out of the Rays-Padres game. Adjust your wagers…

  13. No, Joe Torre is not the greatest manager in New York history

    Jun 24, 2010, 1:12 PM EDT

    Joe Torre is a great manager. He’s not the greatest in New York history, however, and that’s true even if the Daily News says otherwise.

  14. Pitch to face breaks Pirates prospect and 2009 fourth overall pick Tony Sanchez's jaw

    Jun 24, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    Pirates catching prospect Tony Sanchez was hit in the face by a pitch Tuesday while playing at Single-A and has been diagnosed with a fractured jaw, so the fourth overall pick in last year’s draft will need surgery that could end his season. Sanchez was scheduled to represent the Pirates in the Futures Game during…

  15. The Dodgers may be talking to Pedro Martinez

    Jun 24, 2010, 12:16 PM EDT

    The Dodgers could use some pitching help, and some have speculated that they could be in on the Cliff Lee frenzy. For now, though, general manager Ned Colletti is setting his sights a bit lower: free agent pitchers such a Pedro Martinez, Braden Looper and Jarrod Washburn. He’s not said that he talked to any…

  16. Jerry Seinfeld visits the Mets broadcast booth and Jose Reyes stays hot

    Jun 24, 2010, 11:43 AM EDT

    Jerry Seinfeld picked a pretty good night to spend half the game in the SNY broadcast booth with Keith “I’m Keith Hernandez” Hernandez and Gary Cohen. Jose Reyes finished a double short of the cycle, R.A. Dickey continued his amazing run by improving to 6-0 with eight shutout innings, and the Mets won 2-0. They’re…

  17. Evan Longoria is slumping

    Jun 24, 2010, 11:17 AM EDT

    One of the reasons the Rays have had such a hard go of it lately has been that their best hitter — Evan Longoria — is really fighting it.  He went 0 for 5 in last night’s loss to the Padres and he’s 4 for his last 31 in his last eight games. As Tony…

  18. The Pirates designate Dana Eveland for assignment

    Jun 24, 2010, 11:01 AM EDT

    I have no idea why I care at all about Dana Eveland, but this is at least my third post about him this year. I don’t think I’ve posted as much about Jeter or Pujols.  It’s gotta be the name. It’s just so darn dramatic sounding! But he’s just a name, it seems, because he’s…
