    Gwynn

    If you’re looking for an unkind word about Tony Gwynn among those who knew him, played against him, played under him, covered him or merely watched him play, well, you’re going to be looking for a long, long time.

Just to put things into perspective, he was born in August of 1996, less than two months after Tommy Lasorda managed his final game in Dodger Blue. Feeling old yet? Urias, a native of Mexico,…

    Nov 30, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Eric Stults

    With an abundance of arms at the back end of the starting rotation, the Padres could make a deal to acquire a left-handed hitter and/or a left-handed reliever, suggests Bill Center of U-T San Diego.

    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…

  23. Yonder Alonso played second base last night

    Apr 11, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    yonder alonso second base

    Cincinnati traded Yonder Alonso in part because they had Joey Votto at first base and didn’t think he could hack it defensively at third base or left field.
