  5. “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…

  6. Buster Olney doesn’t think Vizquel, Tejada, Nomar were shortstops

    Feb 24, 2014, 6:00 PM EST

    Buster Olney

    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…

    After securing Brad Penny as a non-roster invitee yesterday, the Royals added another familiar name today by signing reliever Guillermo Mota to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. Mota hasn’t pitched professionally since 2012 as a member of the Giants when he posted a 5.23 ERA over 26 appearances. He served…

    Miguel Tejada AP

    Shortstop Miguel Tejada is once again in the news for all the wrong reasons. MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez is reporting that Tejada has been suspended for the rest of the Dominican Winter League season after he admitted to purchasing shares in the rival Gigantes del Cibao while actively playing for Aguilas Cibaenas. From a translated version of Dionisio…

  9. MLB says Miguel Tejada did not warrant any Biogenesis discipline

    Aug 21, 2013, 3:30 PM EST

    Miguel Tejada AP

    An odd press release from Major League Baseball just now: “The Office of the Commissioner investigated all allegations regarding players associated with Anthony Bosch and Biogenesis. The investigation found no violation by Miguel Tejada of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.” This coming on the heels of reports earlier this week that Tejada was…

    Miguel Tejada AP

    Royals infielder Miguel Tejada was handed a 105-game suspension from MLB over the weekend following multiple positive tests for amphetamine use, but Pedro Gomez of ESPN.com reports that the former American League MVP was also implicated in the recent Biogenesis investigation. In fact, it appears MLB leveraged his link to Biogenesis to get him to…

  11. So, Jeff Pearlman: how do you really feel about Alex Rodriguez?

    Jeff Pearlman writes today that Ryan Dempster is a hero for throwing a baseball at Alex Rodriguez. But I’m not quite sure how strongly he feels about it. Please judge for yourself: F**k you for cheating. F**k you for stealing paychecks. F**k you for influencing the outcomes of games. F**k you for lying. F**k you for dragging us all…

    Aug 17, 2013, 7:20 PM EST

    San Francisco Giants v Washington Nationals

    Miguel Tejada received a 105-game suspension from Major League baseball after testing positive for amphetamines for a second and third time this year. The suspension would run through the first 65 games of the 2014 season, which may simply push the 39-year-old Tejada into retirement instead. On the heels of that news, Twins starter Mike…

  13. Miguel Tejada suspended 105 games for amphetamines

    Aug 17, 2013, 2:10 PM EST

    Miguel Tejada AP

He will begin serving the suspension immediately. Tejada, 39, had already tested positive for amphetamines in the past, but he tested positive twice again recently.…

  14. Royals acquire Emilio Bonifacio from Blue Jays

    Aug 14, 2013, 1:16 PM EST

    Emilio Bonifacio

    Sunday afternoon the Royals acquired Jamey Carroll from the Twins and today they added another veteran utility man, trading a player to be named later or cash to the Blue Jays for Emilio Bonifacio. Not so long ago Bonifacio looked like a potential everyday player, but the speedy switch-hitter has been terrible this season while…

  15. The Royals finally use the disabled list again

    Aug 1, 2013, 12:12 PM EST

    Chris Getz, Adam Dunn

    But, don’t worry, it’s just for Chris Getz. The major criticism with the Royals’ decision to buy and not sell at the trade deadline was that they did nothing to address the black hole in their lineup at second base. Now they’ll be forced to try something a little different after Getz suffered a sprained…

  16. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 13, 2013, 7:19 AM EST

    Detroit Tigers v Kansas City Royals

    Royals 3, Tigers 2: Jose Valverde was handed a 2-0 lead in the ninth with a runner on and promptly coughed it up by surrendering a homer to Lorenzo Cain. Phil Coke added his own brand of kerosene to the fire on the 10th as Eric Hosmer singled in the winning run. After the game…

  17. The Kansas City Royals Power Hour

    May 29, 2013, 12:01 PM EST

    St. Louis Cardinals v Kansas City Royals

    The Kansas City Royals did not hit a home run again on Tuesday — heck, they only managed two hits against the Cardinals, a hard double and soft single by Billy Butler — (update: they failed again on Wednesday) and so that means they have two home runs since May 15, both by 439-year-old Miguel…

  18. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Clayton Kershaw

    Dodgers 3, Brewers 1: After the last scene of Don Mattingly’s managerial life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that at many times along the path of his time in Los Angeles, especially at the very lowest and saddest times, there was only one set of footprints. Clayton Kershaw then whispered, “My precious…

    Mar 11, 2013, 3:45 PM EST

    Adrian Beltre Getty

    Adrian Beltre is healthy now after sitting out Round 1 of the World Baseball Classic with a strained calf muscle, leading to some speculation that he’d join the Dominican Republic for Round 2 later this week.

  23. Dominican Republic crushes Phillies 15-2 in exhibition

    Mar 5, 2013, 4:08 PM EST

    Jose Reyes

    The Phillies meant to give the Dominican Republic a proper tuneup on Tuesday, going so far as to start likely ace Cole Hamels. This one was quickly a rout, though, as the Dominican club collected a whopping 28 hits and steamrolled the Phillies 15-2. Jose Reyes, Robinson Cano and Hanley Ramirez all homered for the…

Speaking to reporters, Jones joked that he was going after Cal Ripken Jr’s all-time record of 2,632 consecutive games played. “I’m going to break Cal [Ripken, Jr.’s] record,” Jones joked. “I’m going after…
