    One would think that name-naming is the entire purpose of Major League Baseball’s PED enforcement.

    The second Red Sox-Yankees game in a row with replay drama. And this one got a manager ejected.

    The other owners will have to ratify the move at their next meeting, but as of yesterday it’s all but official: the Braves now own the Nationals.

  10. Francisco Cervelli drawing “lots of trade interest”

    Mar 10, 2014, 10:41 PM EDT

    francisco cervelli getty

    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…

  11. The Yankees gave Robinson Cano’s old number to Scott Sizemore

    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…

  12. MLB still trying to get evidence that A-Rod obstructed the Biogenesis investigation

    Dec 12, 2013, 8:51 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Reuters

    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…

  13. Francisco Cervelli talks about his PED use and Biogenesis

    Oct 9, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    Francisco Cervelli

    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…

  14. Cast off by Yankees, Russell Martin is early postseason hero for Pirates

    Oct 2, 2013, 12:50 AM EDT

    Russell Martin

    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…

  15. Alex Rodriguez’s lawyer accuses the Yankees of being misleading about his client’s injury

    Aug 17, 2013, 5:25 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Reuters

    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…

  16. A-Rod denies that he leaked the Biogenesis information to Yahoo!

    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.

    Aug 16, 2013, 8:15 AM EDT

    alex rodriguez getty

    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:…

  18. A-Rod handed 211-game ban; eligible pending appeal

    Aug 5, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    alex rodriguez getty

    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…

  19. Jesus Montero’s future in doubt with 50-game ban

    Aug 5, 2013, 2:27 PM EDT

    Jesus Montero

    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…

    Aug 5, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    Jordany Valdespin

    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…

  21. Is Biogenesis casting a shadow over the trade deadline?

    Jul 31, 2013, 10:49 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Reuters

    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…

  22. Report: Biogenesis players ready to accept their bans

    Jul 30, 2013, 7:59 PM EDT

    Nelson Cruz, Gary Pettis

    Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan reports that, Alex Rodriguez excepted, the rest of the players involved in the Biogenesis scandal are ready to accept suspensions or 50 games or more. Sources told Passan that the suspensions will come down within 72 hours. The AP is reporting that Friday could be the day. Among those expected to…

  23. Francisco Cervelli shut down for two weeks with stress reaction in elbow

    Francisco Cervelli AP

    The Yankees were hoping to get catcher Francisco Cervelli back from a fractured right hand shortly after the All-Star break, but that won’t happen now. According to the Associated Press, Cervelli will be shut down for the next two weeks after an MRI exam revealed a stress reaction in his right elbow. A stress reaction…

  24. Who is Alex Rodriguez following on Twitter?

    Screen Shot 2013-06-26 at 9.41.35 AM

    Sure, the big news about Alex Rodriguez joining Twitter this week is that he almost immediately managed to piss off Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, but as a Twitter addict I’m more interested in who A-Rod has chosen to follow. So far he’s followed 41 accounts, including lots of Yankees-related stuff like the Yankees’ official…
