    Last week there was some stuff about CC Sabathia‘s weight. It was reported that he lost 30 pounds.

    bartolo colon released-thumb-240x157-1926

    Sure, once there are three teams, we can call it a sweepstakes. As we mentioned a couple of weeks ago, the Indians were thinking about bringing back Bartolo Colon.  Now, thanks to MLBTR’s Nick Collias who translated this Spanish language article, we learn that the Yankees and the Rangers have expressed interest too.  Well, at…

    Nov 10, 2010, 5:34 PM EST

    Glenn Burke was the first and, as far as we know, the only gay player to be out of the closet to his teammates and team ownership during his major league career.  Burke and many believed that he was run out of the league because of it.  It’s also possible that he was pushed out…

    Apr 12, 2010, 5:47 AM EST

    Brewers 8, Cardinals 7: I’m in the tri-state area today meeting NBC folks, planning for the future, talking about the State of the Blog, but mostly just convincing them that they’re entrusting their baseball coverage to a real person and not an android or one kid standing on another kid’s shoulders wearing a long overcoat…

  9. Scenes from Spring Training: Phun with the Phillie Phanatics Part 3

    Mar 15, 2010, 10:00 AM EST

    After the clubhouse I made it out to the field and scoped the scene: The Phillies take a much more casual approach to stretching than the circle-em-up Pirates do. At the risk of best-shape-of-his-life cliches, I really can’t impress upon you just how good Ryan Howard looks. He has absolutely transformed himself over the past couple…

  10. So I'm going to Spring Training

    Mar 5, 2010, 7:57 AM EST

    I’ll be blogging as usual today, but first thing tomorrow I’m leaving on a jet plane and heading to Florida to check out some Spring Training wonderfulness.  It should be great: I’m in the best shape of my life. I’m working on a new grip for my changeup. The voice of the turtle is heard…

    Jan 8, 2010, 12:30 PM EST

  12. Sheffield in Tampa Bay? Why not?

    Dec 21, 2009, 10:58 AM EST

    Gary Sheffield has been out peddling his I’m-in-the-best-shape-of-my-life and I-want-to-reach-3000-hits stuff for a while. The latest target? Tampa Bay, where a random note in the St. Petersburg Times has him saying that he wants to play two more years and finish his career with the Rays. I was going to make a joke about how…
