Joel Zumaya Could Be Done for Good

I’ve had my share of fun with Joel Zumaya in the past. It was hard not to when he injured his arm playing too much Guitar Hero and then showed us how hard he was rehabbing by doing keg stands. But now is not the time for fun. Really, after seeing Zumaya go down on…Read More

Minor Leagues Are Asset, Not Demotion

Player development is a tricky proposition for Major League Baseball organizations. It’s hard to know when the right time is to bring someone up to the majors and it’s hard to know what to do with them if they begin struggling. Sometimes players just don’t cut it when they’re initially brought up, or sometimes they…Read More

Evan Longoria and B.J. Upton Get Into it

It’s always a shame anytime we post an item about teammates getting into a dust-up. Much like Hanley Ramirez who had to be reprimanded for being lazy going after a ball, Rays third baseman Evan Longoria confronted center fielder B.J. Upton who coasted for a ball hit in the left-center gap on Sunday. Rusty Ryal…Read More

Guillen’s Dinner Date With Zambrano Could be Good for the Cubs

The incident landed Zambrano an…Read More

Edwin Jackson Gets No-Hitter, Pitch Counts Be Damned

This baseball season has been entirely about pitching dominance. We’ve had two perfect games (and a third taken away by a bad call) and now two no-hitters. Ubaldo Jimenez no-hit the Braves, Roy Halladay tossed a perfect game against the Marlins, Dallas Braden threw a perfect game against the Rays, and now Edwin Jackson has…Read More

Carlos Zambrano Blows Another Gasket

Looks like our annual Carlos Zambrano meltdown has taken place, only a little later in the season than usual. Three years ago Zambrano got into a fight in the dugout with catcher Michael Barrett. Last year, Big Z was ejected for bumping an umpire and beating up a gatorade cooler. This year, Zambrano went ape…Read More

Rob Dibble’s Ichiro Ass Tattoo

On Thursday’s PM edition of Hot Clicks at SI, Jimmy Traina linked to a story about Nationals broadcasters Rob Dibble and Ray Knight getting into a disagreement on air. I thought the disagreement (regarding Stephen Strasburg’s two-strike pitches on Wednesday) was rather petty and exacerbated by Dibs. While that story was only semi-entertaining, it reminded…Read More
