  1. Mike Schmidt is wrong: 20 years is not enough for Pete Rose

    Aug 24, 2009, 10:57 AM EDT

    The best third baseman of all time is given an Associated Press column to make his case for Charlie Hustle.  The upshot (apart from merely making Rose’s case on its own merits): Bart Giamatti was a wise and compassionate man who would have eventually given Rose the benefit of the doubt:  An interesting question was posed…

  2. Bud puts the brakes on the Pete Rose reinstatement talk

    Jul 29, 2009, 10:43 AM EDT

    All of that fun we had the other day with Pete Rose seems to have petered out, as Bud Selig is now telling people that he’s not going to pardon the hit king. The Dayton Daily News’ Hal McCoy thinks that someone got played: I can sniff exactly what happened. It has happened to me.…

  3. Is Pete Rose going to get a pardon?

    Jul 27, 2009, 10:09 AM EDT

    This would be interesting: Thanks to the behind-the-scenes lobbying from some of the most influential Hall of Famers, commissioner Bud Selig is said to be seriously considering lifting Pete Rose’s lifetime suspension from baseball. The tip-off that Selig may now be inclined to pardon baseball’s all-time hit king was Hank Aaron’s seemingly impromptu interview session…

  4. A Rose By Any Other Name

    Jan 9, 2014, 10:30 AM EDT

    Pete Rose

    There are many people in and around baseball who believe that Pete Rose should never be reinstated and should never be allowed in the Hall of Fame. They have a very strong case. 1. Pete Rose as manager of the Cincinnati Reds gambled on baseball games when he knew — fully and completely understood —…

  5. Cardinals trade David Freese to Angels for Peter Bourjos

    Nov 22, 2013, 2:28 PM EDT

    bourjos getty

    UPDATE: Well, that progressed from rumor to trade in a hurry. Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Angels have traded center fielder Peter Bourjos and outfield prospect Randal Grichuk to the Cardinals for third baseman David Freese and reliever Fernando Salas. Obviously the Angels are betting that Freese will bounce back following a down…

  6. Cardinals will keep Trevor Rosenthal in the bullpen

    Nov 4, 2013, 6:28 PM EDT

    Trevor Rosenthal

    Carlos Martinez will get a chance to compete for a spot in the Cardinals’ rotation next spring, but fellow hard-throwing young right-hander Trevor Rosenthal will remain in the bullpen. Mike Matheny announced that Rosenthal will enter 2014 as the Cardinals’ closer after thriving in that role down the stretch and into the playoff this year.…

  7. The overturning of the Pete Kozma play last night was a preview of the upcoming challenge replay system

    Oct 24, 2013, 7:41 AM EDT

    World Series Cardinals Red Sox Baseball

    Watching the umpires overturn Dana DeMuth’s awful call on the would-be double play ball dropped by Pete Kozma last night made me wonder about the upcoming expanded instant replay system. Hearing Joe Torre talk about it with Ken Rosenthal a couple of innings later made me wonder even more. My biggest takeaways from it are…

  8. Your overwrought anti-A-Rod prose of the day

    Oct 22, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Getty

    This from Peter Botte of the New York Daily News: As Cashman gave a lukewarm welcome back to his tarnished star, Rodriguez was in sunny Miami for some undeserved R & R. Clad in black shades and a black baseball cap that did little to hide his crushed ego, vanity and pride, A-Rod came to…

  9. Now Ken Rosenthal is piling on the Red Sox

    Aug 17, 2012, 1:35 PM EDT

    Ken Rosenthal

    Apparently FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal wanted a piggy-back ride. Rosenthal is the best breaking-news MLB reporter around right now, but he has absolutely nothing new to offer in his column Friday firing off one-liners at the Red Sox… Spoiled, overpaid, underperforming children who should be seen and not heard. Pedroia was Francona’s pet (for good reason)…

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

    Apr 9, 2012, 9:31 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 27, 2012, 2:49 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 19, 2011, 8:12 AM EDT

    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.…

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

    Dec 11, 2011, 10:00 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 10, 2011, 3:45 PM EDT

    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…

  15. Prosecutors are worried about Roger Clemens’ lawyer

    Jan 27, 2011, 5:31 PM EDT

    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,…

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

    Nov 15, 2010, 3:18 PM EDT

    rick-peterson-brewers

    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…

  17. The McGwire-Rose comparisons make no sense

    Jan 26, 2010, 2:20 PM EDT

    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…

  18. Rosenthal: BBWAA membership is too bloated

    Jan 8, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 28, 2009, 9:25 AM EDT

    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…

  21. A trip to Crosley Field. Which isn’t there anymore.

    Crosley Field

    Crosley Field was the home of the Cincinnati Reds for 58 years. I went there this morning. Here is what I mostly didn’t see.

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

    Jan 28, 2015, 10:15 AM EDT

    New York Yankees' Suzuki runs and watches the ball after he hit a walk-off home run to beat the Texas Rangers in their MLB American League game in New York

    At age 41 he’ll be joining the Marlins in a backup role, playing behind starting outfielders Giancarlo Stanton, Marcell Ozuna, and Christian Yelich.

    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.
