    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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  8. Four theories about the Hall of Fame voting changes

    Jul 27, 2014, 12:20 PM EDT

    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.

  11. Play of the Day: Mike Morin catches a deflected pop-up for the out

    Jul 6, 2014, 9:45 PM EDT

    Mike Morin

    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.

  14. Nelson Cruz, Melky Cabrera and the silent majority

    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?

  15. Derek Jeter is signing a pretty cool ball today

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

  16. Should MLB opt for safer bases to reduce sliding-related injuries?

    May 9, 2014, 11:15 PM EDT

    Jacoby Ellsbury

    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?

  17. Which major-league managers were the best players?

  18. Tweet of the Day: Exactly how I figured the Donald Sterling ban would spill over into baseball

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

  19. “Respect the Game?” Phooey.

    carlos gomez getty

    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.

  20. Boswell: “Harper may be the Nats’ seventh-best player”

    Bryce Harper Getty

    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.

  21. Don’t diminish Hank Aaron’s greatness by calling him The Home Run King

    Apr 8, 2014, 5:25 PM EDT

    Hank Aaron AP

    Henry Aaron is NOT The Home Run King. That sounds like I’m going to follow with some rant about Barry Bonds breaking his record and how terrible that was … but I’m not. My thought here has nothing to do with that. Henry Aaron is not the Home Run King because that silly title would do nothing but diminish his greatness.

  22. One PED-fueled, record-breaking felon is good. The other PED-fueled, record-breaking felon is bad

    pete rose getty

    My favorite thing about PED hysterics is how they totally freak out when one compares PED cheats to spitballers, bat-corkers and amphetamine poppers, claiming it to be apples and oranges and an illegitimate exercise in moral equivalency. Yet they themselves  love to compare gambling on baseball to PED use. And do so in an effort…

  23. Is Barry Bonds really getting a “fair hearing?”

    Mar 11, 2014, 8:25 AM EDT

    Barry Bonds

    In the wake of yesterday’s Barry Bonds press conference, Ken Rosenthal talks about Bonds’ Hall of Fame case. Rosenthal opposes Bonds’ induction. He says this about those who do not: I hate when some in favor of Bonds’ and Clemens’ candidacies disdainfully describe voters like myself as “gatekeepers of morality.” Guilty as charged, I guess, but…

  24. Derek Jeter has marks to shoot for in final season

    Feb 12, 2014, 2:55 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter Getty

    Not that he ever seemed particularly motivated by personal milestones, but any dream of 4,000 hits and a run at Pete Rose died for Derek Jeter when he suffered a fractured ankle in the 2012 postseason. Never healthy in 2013, he played in just 17 games due to a quad injury and continued soreness in…
