  1. Ken Rosenthal thinks Ozzie Guillen should be suspended for 30 days

    Apr 9, 2012, 9:31 AM EST

    St Louis Cardinals v Miami Marlins

    Ken Rosenthal tackles the Ozzie Guillen/Fidel Castro dustup and, early on, says this: I normally cringe at politically correct overreactions, particularly in response to mindless, preposterous remarks from people who are just spouting off. But … So you can guess where that’s going: a politically correct overreaction. Rosenthal calls Guillen’s Castro comments “about as extreme and…

  2. Peter Bourjos will likely need hip surgery after the season

    Feb 27, 2012, 2:49 PM EST

    Tampa Bay Rays v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Peter Bourjos made certain to say that he’s currently feeling “good, normal, 100 percent” but the Angels center fielder also said today that he’ll likely need hip surgery after the season. Bourjos told Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times that he would’ve had the operation to repair labrum fraying during the offseason, except he…

  3. Meanwhile, in an alternate universe where the Barry Bonds prosecution was “a triumph” for the prosecution

    Dec 19, 2011, 8:12 AM EST

    lawsuit gavel

    ESPN’s legal expert Lester Munson has been in love with the Barry Bonds prosecution for several years now. Specifically, the Barry Bonds prosecutors as well as the feds behind the BALCO investigation. And it has led to some pretty wacky analysis of that case on his part. He was wildly incorrect about earlier evidentiary rulings.…

  4. Angels won’t be willing to move Peter Bourjos

    Dec 11, 2011, 10:00 PM EST

    Peter Bourjos

    The Angels have seven players for the three outfield spots and DH in the wake of the Albert Pujols signing, but they’re not going to consider trading Peter Bourjos, GM Jerry DiPoto said. “Peter Bourjos is a guy we’re going to hold,” Dipoto told FOXSports.com. “He’s one of the better defenders in the league, a 0-to-3 (in years…

  5. UPDATE: Orlando Cabrera to compete for the Indians’ second base job

    Feb 10, 2011, 3:45 PM EST

    Orlando Cabrera, Jayson Werth

    UPDATE: Rosenthal tweets that Cabrera will compete for the second base job. Asdrubal Cabrera will stay at short. The idea is to make Orlando Cabrera learn second. Much better that way I think seeing as though the Indians’ second base options — Luis Valbuena and Jason Donald — don’t have Asdrubal Cabrera’s upside.  And worse case scenario for…

  6. Prosecutors are worried about Roger Clemens’ lawyer

    Jan 27, 2011, 5:31 PM EST

    Rusty Hardin

    The Roger Clemens prosecutors are asking the judge to grill Clemens to make sure he’s aware that his attorney — Rusty Hardin — may have a conflict of interest in that Hardin briefly represented Andy Pettitte back when the Mitchell Report came out.  My assumption is that the prosecutors are trying to make sure that,…

  7. Rick Peterson fired by Brewers after interviewing for own job

    Rick Peterson has one year left on his contract as Milwaukee’s pitching coach, but last week the Brewers made him re-interview for his own job after hiring Ron Roenicke as their new manager and now Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that they’ve decided to fire him. Rosenthal notes that the Yankees, Mets, and Pirates still…

  8. The McGwire-Rose comparisons make no sense

    Jan 26, 2010, 2:20 PM EST

    ESPN’s Gene Wojciechowski can’t see why, if Mark McGwire is allowed to take a job in the game, Pete Rose is not.  Indeed, he spends a couple dozen paragraphs making that equivalency, culminating in this: Yes, Rose betrayed the game by gambling on baseball. There’s no way around that elephant in the middle of the…

  9. Rosenthal: BBWAA membership is too bloated

    Jan 8, 2010, 11:30 AM EST

    Ken Rosenthal doesn’t mince any words when it comes to the Hall of Fame electorate: Our membership is too bloated, too riddled with voters who do not take the process seriously enough to educate themselves properly . . . Virtually every voter I know is honored to participate in the process. Virtually every voter I…

  10. The Brewers may hire Rick Peterson as their next pitching coach

    Sep 28, 2009, 9:25 AM EST

    That’s according to Ken Rosenthal anyway. Peterson is one of those famous, name brand pitching coaches. He became a name brand by landing a job with the A’s just before Zito, Hudson and Mulder came up, and talent like that has a funny way of making a pitching coach look good.  He’s famous for allegedly saying that…

  11. Ichiro Suzuki’s deal with the Marlins is worth $2 million

    Jan 28, 2015, 10:15 AM EST

    Prediction: There are 16 players on this year’s Baseball Hall of Fame ballot who will not receive 5% of the vote and, as such, will be bumped off the ballot.

  13. Going all the way back to 1977

    Baseball, I’ve written before, will never stop being the game it was when you were 10 years old. That’s the charm. That’s the nostalgia. That’s the trap. I was 10 years old in 1977. The Kansas City Royals had the best record in baseball that year. The Baltimore Orioles were baseball’s paragon.

  14. Tom Seaver got in shape with Reader’s Digest Condensed books

    Oct 8, 2014, 1:30 PM EST

    Tom Seaver

    “Look at Shakespeare over here. Hey, professor, where are your glasses?” — Pete Rose to Tom Seaver in 1970, probably.

  18. Four theories about the Hall of Fame voting changes

    Jul 27, 2014, 12:20 PM EST

    hall of fame logo large

    So I have three – no, wait, just thought of another one, so four – theories about the Baseball Hall of Fame’s decision to reduce the time a player can spend on the ballot from 15 years to 10. I am not opposed to this rule, by the way. I have long thought 15 years was too long for a player to be on the ballot. And I am absolutely for some changes in the Hall of Fame process …

    Adam Wainwright chose to follow baseball’s unwritten rules and salute one of the all-time greats in his final All-Star Game. Somehow, he became the bad guy.

    Nelson Cruz could be elected to the All-Star Game. Melky Cabrera and Ryan Braun, too. Shouldn’t the public be more upset about this?
