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…

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,…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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.

“Look at Shakespeare over here. Hey, professor, where are your glasses?” — Pete Rose to Tom Seaver in 1970, probably.
Clayton Kershaw-for-MVP tidbit: Plenty of voters didn’t pick Bob Gibson and his 1.12 ERA for MVP in 1968
Sep 25, 2014, 3:49 PM EDT
Not everyone thought 305 innings of a 1.12 ERA equaled MVP.

After tying Honus Wagner for sixth on MLB’s all-time hits list last night, Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter moved into sole possession this afternoon with an infield single against Indians right-hander Corey Kluber in the bottom of the sixth inning.

It’s been a trying year for Bryce Harper, but the Washington Nationals are in first place despite the struggling star.

With three hits against the Rangers this evening, Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has passed Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski for seventh-place on baseball’s all-time hit list.

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.

Mike Morin and Hank Conger did a reenactment of sorts of the famous Pete Rose/Bob Boone play from the 1980 World Series.

Johnny Damon may be going a little crazy. The 40-year-old veteran says that he can “outhit at least half the league”.

The game is always changing. Even if people tell you otherwise.

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?

And with that, we probably have the only thing he and Pete Rose really have in common.

Unknown to many, baseball’s hard bases have been the culprit of many injuries to star players in recent years. Is it time for Major League Baseball to take additional safety measures and go to a softer base?

Joe Posnanski ranks all 30 MLB managers by how good they were during their playing days.

You can’t hate the Pete Rose Truth Squad. You can only tip your ugly hat to them for their dogged persistence.

Baseball has survived “threats” like Carlos Gomez before. And has even thrived because of them. Should guys like him respect the game? How sad that’d be.
Apr 21, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT
That’s patently ridiculous, of course. But that’s the kind of nonsense you get when you start attacking guys for their alleged lack of hustle.
