Rocco Baldelli, Chase Headley Commit Double-Sombrero

It’s not so much that LB’s been too busy to keep up with Sombrero watch, it’s more that Golden Sombrero’s are a rare occurrence. And that my friends, is why we must recognize each one. There was a special Sombrero in Boston on Monday night. Rocco Baldelli whiffed four times, leaving four men on base,…Read More

A Chicago-less World Series Now?

I don’t remember the World Series hopes of teams taking bigger hits than what both Chicago squads went through this week. Sure, the Rays losing Carl Crawford and Evan Longoria in a span of a few days was bad, but those guys at least were on schedule to return before the playoffs began (Longoria more…Read More

Andre Ethier: Hitting in Front of Manny Definitely Helps

One of the raging debates in LA until he went on the shelf with knee surgery, was whether or not hitting in front of Manny Ramirez led to an offensive surge for Jeff Kent. Kent was adamant that it made no difference, even going so far as to insult Vin Scully in the process. Anyway,…Read More

Jered Weaver Cuts Hand on Bench, Will Miss Start

Keeping up the tradition of the weirdest injuries in sports, Angels pitcher Jered Weaver will miss his next scheduled start because of cuts on his fingers. Did he cut his hand on a fence, or some netting, or maybe on a small knife? Nope, nope, and nope. Jered Weaver hurt himself getting up from a…Read More

Manny Ramirez Serves as Angel Berroa’s Translator in Post Game Interview

Angel Berroa homered on Wednesday night, his first since ’06. Even though he’s mostly a Spanish speaker, he was interviewed on FSN after the Dodgers’ win. One caveat however: he had Manny Ramirez — the two instantly became friends when Manny arrived in LA — translate the interview for him. As you could imagine, pure…Read More

Ozzie Guillen: Dustin Pedroia Is a Jockey, Just Came Off Big Brown

There’s a reason Ozzie Guillen’s a two-time Hall of Famer here at LBS, and comments like this one are helping his case for a bronze statue as well. Keep in mind that Ozzie Guillen was complimenting Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia who had gone 8-for-8 against his team at the time of his comment:…Read More

Brian Cashman Takes the Blame for Failure, Preparing for a New Job?

Nobody ever accused Yankees GM Brian Cashman of deflecting blame; he’s always been a stand up guy. There was the time in Buster Olney’s book where it’s said Cashman wanted to sign Vlad but Steinbrenner insisted upon Sheffield, but aside from that, Cashman takes responsibility for everything. So much so, that he straight up took…Read More

Scott Kazmir Calls Out Rays Fans

I was watching Jim Rome Is Burning Thursday and noticed a familiar guest on the program — Rays pitcher Scott Kazmir — a guy who has been on Jim’s show the last few years. Thing is, every time in the past that Kazmir’s been on, it was early in the year before the Rays were…Read More
