Before you look, guess which year it was. I am somewhat embarrassed to have been a couple of years off.
Major League Baseball issues a statement about the A-Rod therapeutic use exemptions. But questions remain.
Jul 2, 2014, 3:48 PM EST
“Everything has been great since 2008,” the statement basically says. But what about when A-Rod got the therapeutic use exemption for testosterone in 2007?
A-Rod received therapeutic use exemptions for testosterone for several seasons before Biogenesis hit

Baseball brought the hammer down on A-Rod for taking testosterone and other PEDs. But baseball allowed A-Rod to use testosterone and other PEDs for several seasons before he turned to Tony Bosch.

And the Daily News decides to start a pissing match with me.

Derek Jeter is very, very sure he doesn’t want to become a manager.

Baseball is on pace for more shutouts this year than any season in the history of the game. But the problem isn’t the lack of scoring. It’s the lack of action.

The Biogenesis nightmare is a magnificent thought puzzle featuring slimy people from all walks of life. If you have a notebook handy, I’ll get you started and you can play along.

Florida investigators warned MLB not to purchase the stolen Biogenesis documents. MLB did it anyway.

I’m starting come around to this “history’s greatest monster” stuff.

Buster Olney pulls out his McCarthy mask and shakes his finger at Melky Cabrera

MLB insisted all along that its investigators acted properly. Now it has fired the leadership of its investigative unit.

Albert Pujols hit a three-run shot to left field off Nationals starter Taylor Jordan in the top of the first inning and then crushed a two-run bomb to deep left-center off Jordan in the top of the fifth for the 499th and 500th home runs of his 14-year major league career on Tuesday night in Washington, D.C.

You probably know this, but the Kansas City Royals single season home run record is 36, and Steve Balboni set it almost 30 years ago.

Watch as Angels first baseman Albert Pujols moved to within two home runs of the big 500-homer milestone on Saturday afternoon against Tigers closer Joe Nathan …

Hey, cut me some slack. There has been no Puig news since yesterday and I’ve already taunted Phillies fans twice today. I gotta feed at least one of my obsessions every few hours.

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.

God, A-Rod, you can’t buy of subjects of drug investigations and purchase stolen documents! That’s bad! Oh, wait. That’s what Major League Baseball did.

Mark Teixeira suffered yet another injury.

Seattle may have found a long-term building block in Brad Miller.

We may not have Alex Rodriguez to kick around anymore, but we can settle for his nephew.
Mar 28, 2014, 4:44 PM EST
In the wake of the Biogenesis scandal and Alex Rodriguez‘s subsequent 162-game suspension, Major League Baseball and many of its players have called for tougher drug testing and harsher suspensions for violations of baseball’s drug policy. They just got it. Major League Baseball and the MLBPA have announced that they have reached agreement on changes…

UPDATE: CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that the deal includes two vesting options valued at $30 million each. If Cabrera maxes out the deal, he could make as much as $352 million over 12 years. 6:56 p.m. ET: The new money in the deal works out to eight years and $248 million, per FOX Sports’…

Yesterday I explained how misguided the New York Daily News was in painting A-Rod as a “deadbeat” for still having an outstanding balance on his legal bills. I explained how legal billing works and how unusual it is for anyone — person or corporation — to have settled a multi-million dollar legal bill scarcely a…
Mar 20, 2014, 6:22 AM EST
The New York Daily News has a story up today in which they try to paint Alex Rodriguez as a deadbeat for unpaid legal fees. Specifically, they have a source telling them that “A-Rod hasn’t paid millions of dollars in legal bills he owes.” Even more specifically “Rodriguez has paid some of the bills, the…

Let the record show that I gave fair warning: I thought Buster Olney might adjust his lists from Monday’s ESPN Insider column after being presented with the glaring omissions. Alas, I was ignored. The bulk of Olney’s column today was designed to point out how totally not overrated Derek Jeter is. He dives into the…
