  1. Mark DeRosa joins MLB Network as a studio analyst

    Nov 13, 2013, 9:50 AM EDT

    Mark DeRosa

    When news of Mark DeRosa‘s retirement came down yesterday my first thought, and the thought of many others, was that DeRosa was going to be a TV or radio analyst pretty darn quick. And it was quick. Less than 24 hours, in fact: MLB Network today announced that after a 16-year career, Mark DeRosa has joined its…

    Shi Davidi of Sportsnet says that Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos is saying that Mark DeRosa is retiring. DeRosa lasted longer than a lot of people thought he might. Sixteen seasons, to be exact, with time spent in Atlanta, Texas, Chicago, San Francisco, Washington, Cleveland St. Louis and Toronto. A utility guy for the most…

    Facing a decision on whether to tender him a 2014 contract via arbitration, the Indians have decided to simply release closer Chris Perez.

    David Price was lit up for seven earned runs in seven-plus innings Saturday as the Rays allowed the Red Sox to take a 2-0 ALDS lead.

    Sep 25, 2013, 6:51 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Indians 5, White Sox 4: Unbelievable. Chris Perez blows a save in the top of the ninth and the ancient Jason Giambi picks him and the Indians up in the bottom, smacking a two-run walkoff homer. Still life in that old bat. Still life in the Indians, who remain in wild card position. Rangers 3,…

    Arizona Diamondbacks v New York Mets

    Mets 5, Diamondbacks 4: Arizona took two leads in this game: a 3-0 lead they held for most of it and then, after the Mets tied it in the ninth, a 4-3 lead in the 13th. The ultimate rally was capped with Andrew Brown’s two-run single. The best part of that, though: Kirk Gibson ordered…

  11. Mark Teixeira’s contract another expensive miscue for Yankees

    Jun 26, 2013, 9:25 PM EDT

    Mark Teixeira

    When it was signed following the 2008 season, Mark Teixeira‘s eight-year, $180 million deal with the Yankees was the third biggest in MLB history and largest to go to someone not named Alex Rodriguez. Now it rivals Rodriguez’s as one of the worst in baseball. With the news Wednesday that Teixeira would undergo wrist surgery,…

    Andrelton Simmons

    Braves 7, Reds 4: The Braves weren’t going to be able to maintain any sort of momentum if the offense was all Justin Upton — who can’t do it alone — and Evan Gattis — who is, after all, a rookie. Last night they had help from Andrelton Simmons who hit two bombs and drove…

    Allen Craig

    Cardinals 10, Brewers 1: The four-game sweep of the Brewers. Four RBI for Allen Craig. That’s six straight wins for the Cards, who are in their customary first place position in rather quiet fashion. The six first place teams right now: Boston, Detroit, Texas, Atlanta, St. Louis, San Francisco. Not many surprises there. I guess…

    My prayers have been answered: Delmon Young has agreed to a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Phillies. — Todd Zolecki (@ToddZolecki) January 22, 2013 I think this was a masterful move by Ruben Amaro.

    Mark DeRosa was injured last season when he high-fived Bryce Harper. But when you’re a loaded team going for it all, you need a rah-rah guy too, so: Davey had wanted him back.

    Remember how Davey Johnson said he doesn’t “give a rat’s ass” if people get upset at him for resting players once the Nationals had the division title all locked up? Well, he wasn’t kidding. Tonight against the Phillies he’s starting Mark DeRosa at shortstop, which is noteworthy because DeRosa is 35 years old and last…

That changed today: The Nats have acquired Cesar Izturis from the Brewers, a source says. Mark DeRosa fighting a groin injury. Nats needed middle infield help. — Adam Kilgore (@AdamKilgoreWP) August…

    Washington has activated Mark DeRosa from the disabled list after the oft-injured veteran missed the past two months with a strained oblique muscle. DeRosa went 1-for-11 with four walks during a brief minor-league rehab assignment at Single-A and really struggled before the DL stint, so he’s unlikely to see much action unless Ryan Zimmerman‘s shoulder…
