  3. Jose Reyes says Jeff Loria is lying

    Mar 1, 2013, 7:36 AM EST

    Toronto Blue Jays Jose Reyes hits a single against the Houston Astros in Dunedin

    You would think that the whole “Jeff Loria told Jose Reyes to buy a house in Miami” thing would have died by now, but nope, it isn’t.  After Reyes said Loria gave him such advice despite knowing he’d be traded, and after Loria denied that he did it, Reyes tells the New York Post that…

  4. Jeff Loria speaks unscripted, doesn’t do too much better

    Feb 26, 2013, 8:23 AM EST

    Jeffrey Loria

    For the first time in months, Jeff Loria met the press. He did so at last night’s Marlins game. Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post has a detailed rundown of the interview. This was a the highlight for me. Loria was asked if he realizes fans hate him: I have a sense of it.…

    Brutal news this afternoon out of Yankees camp. According to Jack Curry of the YES Network, outfielder Curtis Granderson has been diagnosed with a fractured right forearm and will need 10 weeks of rest and rehab. Which means he probably won’t be ready for action until late April or early May. Granderson suffered the injury…

    Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson was hit on his right arm by a J.A. Happ pitch in the second inning of Sunday’s Grapefruit League game vs. the Blue Jays.

    According to Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post, Jeff Mathis suffered a broken collarbone when he was hit by a foul tip during the fourth inning of today’s Grapefruit League opener against the Cardinals. The injury will sideline him for around six weeks, which means he’ll likely begin the season on the disabled list.…

  8. R.A. Dickey and his knuckleball will have a personal catcher

    Feb 21, 2013, 10:47 AM EST

    r.a. dickey getty

    J.P. Arencibia is Toronto’s starting catcher, but it sounds like he won’t be behind the plate when R.A. Dickey pitches because the Blue Jays want to give the knuckleballer a personal catcher. Last season Josh Thole caught 27 of Dickey’s starts for the Mets and he’s the leading candidate to fill the personal catcher role…

  9. Video: Giancarlo Stanton was beaned during batting practice today

    Feb 20, 2013, 2:31 PM EST

    Giancarlo Stanton

    The Marlins have one legit superstar left. And this is what happened to him in BP today: The pitcher was Jose Fernandez. And unless Jeff Loria paid Fernandez to do this as revenge for Stanton’s critical comments following the big Jose Reyes trade, it was an accident. Stanton says he’s OK. He said he didn’t…

  10. The Blue Jays tell Adam Lind to stop badmouthing the old boss

    Feb 19, 2013, 9:40 AM EST

    Adam Lind

    We’ve had a number of instances of players saying bad things about old managers or teammates lately. The last one was the Blue Jays’ Adam Lind, who over the weekend blamed ex-Jays manager John Farrell for sending him mixed signals about hitting last year: “You guys (the media) were around last year,” Lind said Saturday…

  11. “Cooperation” with an investigation does not mean talking to the media

    Buster Olney is usually pretty sensible about PED stories. He’s not an apologist or anything, but nor is he usually an alarmist. He’s a realist, mostly. He doesn’t condone PED use, obviously, but he also sees it as part of the landscape of baseball and a problem to be dealt with as opposed to some…

  12. Blue Jays second base job “up for grabs” between Maicer Izturis and Emilio Bonifacio

    Feb 18, 2013, 11:51 AM EST

    San Diego Padres v Miami Marlins

    When the Blue Jays signed Maicer Izturis to a three-year deal, $9 million deal in November the assumption was that he’d be their starting second baseman, but then two weeks later Toronto pulled off the blockbuster trade with Miami that brought in another option for the position in Emilio Bonifacio. Yesterday manager John Gibbons told…

  14. Giancarlo Stanton ready to “push forward” with Marlins following tumultuous offseason

    Feb 15, 2013, 10:36 PM EST

    Giancarlo Stanton AP

    Giancarlo Stanton was understandably peeved after the Marlins unloaded Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle and Emilio Bonifacio in a trade with the Blue Jays in December. However, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com notes that Stanton took the high road at Marlins’ camp today in his first public comments of the spring. “You’re not going to…

  15. Melky Cabrera issues his final statement on his PED suspension

    Feb 15, 2013, 9:40 AM EST

    San Francisco Giants v Atlanta Braves

    Melky Cabrera issued a statement this morning about his PED suspension, which he says will be the final thing he says about it. It’s below. I’m not sure what else can be said about it by him, but I’m sure someone will say that he hasn’t been forthcoming or leaves more questions than he does…

  16. Jeff Loria: disingenuous or impulsive?

    Jeffrey Loria

    This is rich: Jose Reyes says 2 days before he got traded had dinner with Jeffrey Loria & Loria told him to get a nice house in Miami. 2 days later: gone — Jayson Stark (@jaysonst) February 15, 2013   So, did Loria know that he was going to trade Reyes two days later? If…

  17. Ricky Romero says his elbow feels “100 times better”

    Feb 14, 2013, 6:34 PM EST

    Ricky Romero AP

    After finishing sixth in the AL with a 2.92 ERA in 2011, Ricky Romero endured a nightmare campaign last year in which he struggled to the tune of a 5.77 ERA and 124/105 K/BB ratio over 181 innings. While the drop-off was alarming, it was somewhat explained when the southpaw had an elbow cleanup in…

    After missing all of last season with a foot injury followed by shoulder surgery Dustin McGowan was supposed to be healthy this spring, but because “healthy” and “Dustin McGowan” aren’t allowed to go together he’s already been shut down with more shoulder problems. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons told reporters that McGowan’s “shoulder was barking”…

  20. Bobby Parnell will close for Mets if Frank Francisco is out

    Feb 13, 2013, 10:15 AM EST

    Bobby Parnell

    Frank Francisco‘s odds of being ready for Opening Day seem slim after the Mets reliever told reporters yesterday that his inflamed elbow is “at zero” percent and manager Terry Collins wasted no time lining up a replacement closer. Marc Carig of New York Newsday reports that Collins called Bobby Parnell last night to tell him…

    General manager Sandy Alderson and manager Terry Collins had slightly different public stances on Frank Francisco‘s job security as the Mets’ closer recently, but now all of that might not even matter. Francisco told reporters today that his inflamed elbow is still an issue, causing him to be shut down, and when asked to put…
