    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…

    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…

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

    Mar 15, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    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…

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…
