Manny Ramirez

  1. The Red Sox are still steamed that a PED guy played against them in the playoffs last year

    For all of the logic people try to apply to their position on PEDs, one’s visceral response — and the color of one’s jersey — still tends to rule their views on the matter.

  2. Manny Ramirez: the drug suspensions were “the best thing happened to me”

    Mar 13, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    BASEBALL-TPE-US-RAMIREZ

    Ken Rosenthal has an exclusive interview with Manny Ramirez. As we saw last week, Manny wants back in baseball. That may be a pipe dream, but it’s not anything new. What is new is Manny speaking openly about his two PED suspensions: He received a 50-game suspension in ’09 and was on the verge of…

  3. “Super Manny” Ramirez still thinks he can play

    BASEBALL-TPE-US-RAMIREZ

    A friend of mine once said that this profession is filled to the brim with unrealistic mother[expletives]. Mother[expletives] who thought their [expletive] would age like wine. If you mean it turns to vinegar, it does. If you mean it gets better with age, it don’t. Exhibit A, Manny Ramirez, who said this to Enrique Rojas of…

  4. Manny Ramirez hires a new agent for some reason

    Feb 18, 2014, 9:47 AM EDT

    BASEBALL-TPE-US-RAMIREZ

    This is absolutely adorable: Manny Ramirez will now be represented by Alex Esteban of Miami Sports Management, according to a baseball source. #MLB — Zach Links (@ZachLinks) February 17, 2014   I know Ramirez gets quoted as saying he wants to play every now and again, but I figured that was just talk. Besides, if…

  5. Derek Jeter’s greatest feat? Staying irrepressibly likeable as a Yankee (and baseball) icon

    Has any player since Cal Ripken or Hank Aaron or Joe DiMaggio been so respected simply for being himself?

  6. 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…

  7. Rockies will retire Todd Helton’s number 17

    Feb 9, 2014, 7:10 PM EDT

    For the first time since 1997, the Rockies will have a full-time first baseman not named Todd Helton. Helton announced his retirement in September, ending a 17-year Major League career. His Hall of Fame case will be debated in earnest the closer we get to 2018. For now, as Troy Renck of the Denver Post…

  8. Indians to unveil statue of Jim Thome on August 2

    Jan 25, 2014, 8:20 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Minnesota Twins

    Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports that the Indians will unveil a statue of Jim Thome on August 2. Thome, who still has not officially retired, has hit 612 home runs over a 22-year Major League career. 337 of them came in 13 seasons with the Indians between 1991-2002 and a second stint in…

  9. Alex Rodriguez, Anthony Bosch, and disliking everyone in the “60 Minutes” report

    Jan 13, 2014, 12:01 PM EDT

    Yankees' Rodriguez strikes out against the Orioles during Game 4 of their MLB ALDS baseball playoff series in New York

    The trouble with liars, as the old line goes, is that they don’t have the decency to lie all the time. Somewhere in his parade of nonsense, paranoia and self-aggrandizement, it seems evident that Anthony Bosch told some truths about Alex Rodriguez and performance enhancing drugs. It just doesn’t seem practical for him to have…

  10. Tony Bosch: Alex Rodriguez wanted to start an 800-homer club

    Jan 12, 2014, 9:15 PM EDT

    Interviewed by 60 Minutes for Sunday’s show, former drug dealer Tony Bosch says he first met with Alex Rodriguez in 2010 and subsequently gave him numerous performance enhancers and supplements over the following two years, including the banned substances testosterone, hGH and insulin growth factor. Bosch said upon meeting Rodriguez the former MVP asked him…

  11. Alex Rodriguez could still participate in spring training

    Jan 11, 2014, 3:15 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Reuters

    OK, so maybe the Yankees will have some A-Rod-induced headaches in 2014 after all. While Rodriguez was banned for the entirety of the 2014 season by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz today, his spokesperson Ron Berkowitz told Jon Morosi of FOX Sports that it is “100 percent certain” that the suspended slugger plans to participate in spring…

  12. The PED Eight: players who continue to take hits from Hall of Fame voters whether they deserve it or not

    Jan 8, 2014, 4:24 PM EDT

    Barry Bonds

    This is not new. Ever since Mark McGwire appeared on the Hall of Fame ballot for the first time in 2007, a great many Hall of Fame voters have made it their mission to deny entrance to any player who was associated with performance enhancing drugs during his playing career. Or, even if the player…

  13. Manny Ramirez Jr. is a college baseball player

    Nov 22, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    manny ramirez jr

    Manny Ramirez still hasn’t given up on returning to the big leagues, but that’s never going to happen and in the meantime his son, Manny Ramirez Jr., is ready to start playing Division I college baseball. Casey Pratt of CSNBayArea.com reports that the 18-year-old Ramirez Jr., a 6-foot-4 first baseman, is headed to the University…

  14. Prince Fielder, Ian Kinsler, and mouthwatering moves

    Nov 21, 2013, 1:18 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    Opening monologue: How many players in baseball history have a name as incompatible as “Prince Fielder?” Crazy, right? It would be like Bud Harrelson being named “Crown Batter” or Randy Johnson being named “Elfin Junkballer,” or Alex Rodriguez being named “Innocent victim.” Am I right? And what’s the deal with all the questions they ask…

  15. Rico Brogna for hitting coach? Really?

    Nov 12, 2013, 5:33 PM EDT

    question mark

    And now your weird rumor of the day: Heard that former Mets first baseman Rico Brogna is close to joining Angels staff, possibly as assistant hitting coach. — Mike Puma (@NYPost_Mets) November 12, 2013   This is not weird simply because Brogna was a pretty bad hitter with a pretty bad approach to hitting for…

  16. Red Sox redefine what it means to be dynasty

    Oct 31, 2013, 12:41 PM EDT

    131031-david-ortiz-dynasty-

    These Boston Red Sox are a new kind of dynasty. I suppose there’s a question if they really ARE a dynasty, if that word “Dynasty” even means anything in today’s game, with 30 teams and the game’s structure pushing toward parity. But Boston did win its third World Series in a 10-year-span. Only eight teams…

  17. Forget the ‘one great player’ structure for this World Series

    Oct 23, 2013, 11:59 AM EDT

    2013WSLogo

    BOSTON — There seems to be quite a bit of talk about continuity going into this year’s World Series. Well, hey, it’s the Cardinals and the Red Sox again. Fourth time. That was the matchup in ’46, with Stan Musial and Ted Williams, Enos Slaughter and Johnny Pesky, Red Schoendienst and Bobby Doerr and that…

  18. David Ortiz adds to postseason legend

    Oct 14, 2013, 1:01 AM EDT

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    With a laser beam of a grand slam in the eighth inning on Sunday night, David Ortiz essentially saved the Red Sox’s World Series hopes and further his cause as the greatest clutch hitter of his generation. But no matter how you feel about “clutch,” there’s no denying the numbers. The homer was Ortiz’s 15th…

  19. Jason Giambi walks off for Indians after Chris Perez blows lead

    Sep 24, 2013, 10:25 PM EDT

    Jason Giambi

    There’s a little magic left in Jason Giambi‘s bat after all. The 42-year-old former MVP, who entered with a .177 average in 181 at-bats this season, hit a walkoff homer off Addison Reed in the bottom of the ninth, giving the Indians a 5-4 win over the White Sox on Tuesday. It was the Indians’…

  20. On Derek Jeter and other greats who had to keep playing

    Sep 13, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    Derek Jeter Getty

    There is really no doubt at all that Derek Jeter will return and play baseball in 2014. People talk about retirement and legacies and Willie Mays falling down in the outfield — and I’m sure there will be more of that talk all offseason — but I’m willing to wager you won’t hear Derek Jeter…

  21. Bench Yasiel Puig? Really?

    Aug 19, 2013, 5:34 PM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Los Angeles Dodgers

    When things are going as well for you as they are for the Dodgers, I suppose it’s understandable when people start looking for nits to pick. Today Jon Paul Morosi of Fox has decided that it’s time for the Dodgers to bench Yasiel Puig because of his mental lapses. After acknowledging how good Puig is…

  22. Manny Ramirez hit another homer last night in Triple-A

    Jul 13, 2013, 4:29 PM EDT

    Manny Ramirez

    Manny Ramirez had another good game for Triple-A Round Rock last night, as he went 3-for-5 and delivered a go-ahead solo home run in the ninth inning. Check out the video of the home run below. Ramirez, who turned 41 in May, joined the Rangers earlier this month on a minor league deal. He’s hitting…

  23. Manny Ramirez has already been drug tested at Triple-A

    Jul 11, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    BASEBALL-TPE-US-RAMIREZ

    Manny Ramirez has been with the Rangers’ Triple-A team for less than a week, but Jeff Wilson of the Forth Worth Star Telegram reports that he’s already undergone a random drug test. According to Wilson all players on the Triple-A team who weren’t on the 40-man roster underwent testing, including Ramirez. Wilson hints that the…

  24. Oh my stars and garters, what if an All-Star tests positive for drugs!

    Jul 9, 2013, 8:58 AM EDT

    Melky Cabrera

    That’s the short version of Bob Nightengale’s latest column in which he reminds us how the Republic ended last year when Melky Cabrera won the All-Star Game MVP award before his drug suspension. And how, thanks to Biogenesis looming over everything, it could happen again. Nightengale’s concern here is at about a 20 on a…

  25. Manny Ramirez singles and walks in his first Triple-A game

    Jul 8, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    BASEBALL-TPE-US-RAMIREZ

    Woke up this morning vaguely thinking that the whole Manny Ramirez thing was merely a dream. Was sad until I saw this story in the Dallas Morning News which reminded me that, nope, it’s not a dream: Manny Ramirez singled in three at-bats and walked once in his return to organized baseball with Triple-A Round…
