In light of today’s ruling by the arbitrator, suspending him for 162 games, commentators will once again rush to the nearest television camera or take to their laptops and websites to tell us how Alex Rodriguez‘s legacy is now “forever tarnished” or words to that effect. When they do so, however, they will have to forget,…

There seems to be an impression out there that pitchers get hurt today more than they ever did before. It seems that every time a high profile pitcher gets hurt — the latest of these being Mets phenom Matt Harvey — that we get a rash of stories like this one from my friend Terry…

In light of today’s forthcoming suspension many will, once again, rush in front of television cameras to tell us how Alex Rodriguez‘s legacy is now tarnished. Or “now forever tarnished.” Or “his legacy, once sterling, is now as tarnished as … hmm … what is something that is tarnished …? Bob, get that intern to…

The Jays are making moves today. First signing Maicer Izturis and now acquiring righty Jeremy Jeffress from the Royals, reports Jon Heyman. Jeffress has played parts of three seasons in the bigs, two with Kansas City and one wit Milwaukee. In that time he has shown that he can throw hard, but that he walks…

Matt Garza is one of the Cubs’ best summer trade chips, but he might suddenly be damaged goods. According to beat writer Carrie Muskat of MLB.com, the right-hander was removed from Saturday’s game against the Cardinals after just three innings due to cramping in his right triceps. He fell down while trying to cover the first…

The Orioles signed Tsuyoshi Wada to a a two-year, $8.15 million contract over the winter. Then he couldn’t make it out of spring training due to elbow soreness, and since then has pitched a grand total of one inning of minor league ball. But now his year — and most of next, I’d wager — is over:…

Today the Yankees announced that Pedro Feliciano has a “torn shoulder capsule” and the left-hander told Marc Carig of the Newark Star Ledger that he’s “leaning toward” undergoing season-ending surgery.

The New York Times is reporting that Scott Boras, possibly in violation of MLBPA rules, made loans to Dominican prospects “raising questions” about whether his company “exploited the prospects.” A spokesman for Major League Baseball said that “this is a serious issue that raises concerns about the business practices of agents who have played a…

One of the things I love about the early hot stove season is the crazy trade talk. Once things get going hot and heavy in December people get realistic, but in the few days after a team is eliminated you get all kinds of insane speculation. An excellent example of it comes in Jeff Schultz’s…

Released by the Royals last week, Juan Cruz won’t be finding a new home this season because he’s undergoing surgery today to remove a cyst from his shoulder.

Country singer Mindy McCready killed herself yesterday. Roger Clemens, who first met McCready when she was fifteen years-old, has long denied any improper relationship with her, but a detailed report of an affair between the two of them ran in the Daily News back in 2008.
