George A. King III of the New York Post heard last month that the Yankees might look to deal a catcher before they head back north for Opening Day. That catcher could be Francisco Cervelli. According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, the 28-year-old Cervelli is drawing “lots of trade interest” from front offices around…

The Yankees didn’t wait long to turn the page on Robinson Cano. As Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News points out, his old No. 24 has a new owner: Scott Sizemore was assigned No. 24, previously worn by Robinson Cano. — Mark Feinsand (@FeinsandNYDN) February 14, 2014 Sizemore, a non-roster invitee after missing…

Alex Rodriguez‘s P.R. guy, Michael Sitrick, was allegedly served with a subpoena by Major League Baseball. They wanted him to testify in the arbitration as to whether he or his underlings leaked Biogenesis documents implicating Ryan Braun and Francisco Cervelli to the press. MLB believes that he did, and by doing so A-Rod — through his…
Oct 9, 2013, 9:15 AM EST
I imagine we won’t hear from other suspended-but- largely-anonymous Biogenesis players like Sergio Escalona and Fautino De Los Santos, but Francisco Cervelli plays for the Yankees, so he’s got a somewhat higher media profile. Cervelli spoke with Newsday yesterday and talked about his PED use and his involvement with the infamous Miami clinic. The upshot: he had…

Russell Martin may have hit a mere .226 for the Pirates this season, but there’s little doubt he was a difference maker. On Tuesday, he showed the Yankees what they were missing my hitting two homers and catching another gem from Francisco Liriano as the Pirates advanced to the ALDS. After a successful first year…

When denying a report that his camp had leaked the names of Ryan Braun and Francisco Cervelli to the press, Alex Rodriguez cryptically said yesterday that “for the next seven weeks, it’s going to be a very, very bumpy road.” He wasn’t kidding. Rodriguez’s bombastic new lawyer, Joseph Tacopina, has made some pretty bold claims…

Alex Rodriguez is at Fenway Park and he has spoken to the assembled media about this morning’s 60 Minutes report that he leaked Ryan Braun and Francisco Cervelli‘s names to Yahoo! back in February. ARod denies “60 Minutes” report that he leaked information about Cervelli and Braun’s involvement w/ Biogenesis. — Sean McAdam (@Sean_McAdam) August…
60 Minutes reporting that A-Rod’s camp leaked Ryan Braun and other Biogenesis players’ names to Yahoo!
Aug 16, 2013, 8:15 AM EST
Alex Rodriguez has, like, 47 people on the planet in his corner. It’s me, a few other like-minded PED apologists, his kids, some friends, his lawyer and a handful of ballplayers, I figure. If this report from 60 Minutes is accurate, he’s doing a great job now of alienating even those left in his corner:…

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was one of 13 Major League Baseball players who were suspended on Monday for receiving performance-enhancing drugs from a shuttered Miami wellness clinic, the league announced. Rodriguez received a 211-game punishment from the league, which would be effective on Thursday and last through the end of the 2014…

Two years ago, one could have looked at the group of the 14 suspensed Biogenesis players — Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta, Everth Cabrera, Jesus Montero, Francisco Cervelli, Antonio Bastardo, Jordany Valdespin, Sergio Escalona, Fernando Martinez, Cesar Puello, Fautino De Los Santos and Jordan Norberto — and concluded that, besides Braun, Montero…

Lots of Biogenesis news has come out in the past few minutes. We have news of three new names in the Biogenesis scandal, a couple being cleared as well as more news of players agreeing not to appeal and to serve their suspensions. The new names: The Mets’ Jordany Valdespin, the Phillies’ Antonio Bastardo and the…

It seems like all baseball news has been overshadowed by the looming Biogenesis suspensions and the circus that is Alex Rodriguez‘s, Major League Baseball’s and the New York Yankees’ public feud. Indeed, as this week began it appeared as though today’s trade deadline would be a mere afterthought. Or, if not an afterthought, that it…
