    Cincinnati Reds v Chicago Cubs

    The Diamondbacks traded Trevor Bauer to the Indians and received shortstop Didi Gregorius back from the Reds in the three-team deal.

    Jan 11, 2014, 2:53 PM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v New York Yankees

    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,…

  3. The Long Sad History of Injured Pitchers

    Matt Harvey

    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…

    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…

    Japanese pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada tries on an Orioles cap after signing with the Orioles in Baltimore

    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:…

    Boras sulking

    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…

  10. Hey, crazy trade talk has started early this year!

    Oct 14, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    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…

    May 12, 2010, 2:46 PM EDT

    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.

    Roger Clemens

    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. McCready confirmed the affair, though she was always vague about how…
