  1. Dodgers closing in on Reed Johnson

    Jan 31, 2010, 3:49 PM EDT

    On Friday, Craig wondered why the Dodgers were going after Garret Anderson. Well, it looks like they’ve come to their senses, because according to Ken Rosenthal of, the Dodgers are making a “hard run” at free agent outfielder Reed Johnson. He adds that a deal “may be close or already done.” Johnson, 33, played…

  2. Howard Bryant: Mark McGwire is "too toxic" to return

    Jan 27, 2010, 4:25 PM EDT

    Today’s let’s-run-Mark McGwire-out-of-town-on-a-rail tirade comes courtesy of ESPN’s Howard Bryant, who cites the overwhelming outcry from people “around the game” against Mac’s hiring as hitting coach as a reason for him to be fired or shot or tied backwards on a horse while wearing a mardi gras mask and cast out into the desert or…

  3. The dump-McGwire campaign intensifies

    Jan 26, 2010, 7:57 AM EDT

    Yesterday Ken Rosenthal gave Mark McGwire an ultimatum: repent or resign.  I had missed the fact that, earlier in the day, Peter Gammons had thrown a log on that same fire, calling McGwire a “distraction,” questioning whether his presence on the Cardinals is sustainable and, as a grand finale, saying “McGwire, La Russa, Mozeliak, DeWitt…

  4. UPDATE: Tony La Russa doesn't give a s— what you think

    Jan 14, 2010, 10:01 AM EDT

    UPDATE:  Readers who heard the un-bleeped version of the broadcast mentioned below are telling me that the expletive in question was “s—” and not “f—.”  I went with the latter earlier because that’s what the linked transcript said, but in hindsight and based on what the readers are telling me, I’m switching.  Whether that changes…

  5. Jim Bowden thinks the Yankees are still in on Matt Holliday

    Dec 18, 2009, 1:38 PM EDT

    Jim Bowden left his last baseball job under a cloud of incompetence and corruption, and the last time we heard from him he was wearing bright-seamed designer jeans and taking the Nationals to task for signings he himself made.  But hey, a rumor is a rumor, right! Take it away Jim: Despite denials…Yanks are in…

  6. Reliever Saito gets $3.2 million from Braves

    Dec 3, 2009, 6:01 PM EDT

    Takashi Saito’s deal with the Braves is worth $3.2 million and includes $2.3 million in incentives, most of them based on games finished, according to’s Ken Rosenthal. That sounds about right to me. Saito’s stuff has shown signs of decline as a result of his elbow problems, but he still managed a 2.43 ERA…

  7. Joba and Hughes to be "programmed to start" and other Gammons notes

    Nov 24, 2009, 12:29 PM EDT

    Peter Gammons who, lest we forget, was working the news and rumors beat when Rosenthal and Heyman were watching “Superfriends” in their mammas’ rumpus rooms, has a number of nuggets this early afternoon: – The Yankees are content to enter spring training with Joba Chamberlain and Phil Hughes ready to work as starting pitchers, slotting…

  8. The Blue Jays add scouts. How very Moneyball of them.

    Nov 23, 2009, 10:25 AM EDT

    When J.P. Ricciardi, armed with the scout-averse teachings of Billy Beane that would later be revealed Moneyball took over the Blue Jays back in 2001, there was something of a scouting purge in Toronto.  New Jays’ GM Alex Anthopolous is remedying that, increasing the team’s number of domestic scouts from 28 to 54 in an attempt to better compete…

  9. Link-O-Rama: Lincecum, Strasburg, Podsednik, Matsui, Mulder

    Nov 6, 2009, 4:25 PM EDT

    * Prosecutors in Clark County, Washington have dropped misdemeanor marijuana possession charges in exchange for Tim Lincecum paying $377 in fines, which is apparently standard procedure for first-time offenders who cooperate with police. * So much for watching him pitch in the Arizona Fall League on MLB Network tomorrow. Stephen Strasburg has been scratched from…

    Sep 22, 2009, 5:00 PM EDT

    This is part four in a series of columns looking at this winter’s free agent class. I’m listing each player along with his age, as of next April 1, and his place in the previous edition of these rankings from May. Nos. 111-91 Nos. 90-71 Nos. 70-51 50. Noel Arguelles (20) – Prev. NR –…

  11. And That Happened: Wednesday's scores and highlights

    Jul 30, 2009, 5:43 AM EDT

    Yankees 6, Rays 2: Via Facebook, I leaned that Jason from IIATMS and I made the almost simultaneous observation about Joba last night: that he clearly watched Mark Buehrle pitch last week and decided that he was going to be a fast worker too. He was pretty clunky looking at such a pace, but you…

  12. And That Happened: Monday's scores and recaps

    Jun 2, 2009, 5:41 AM EDT

    Yankees 5, Indians 2: In going so deep into the game, Joba Chamberlain finally becomes the eighth inning pitcher everyone seems to want him to be. If he wants to keep the critics happy after Mariano finally retires, he is going to have to go to complete games. And this one makes eighteen straight games…
