1-800-STEROIDS: MLB Has Roids Hotline

George Mitchell would be quite proud. Taking a step to enact many of the suggestions put forth in the Mitchell Report, MLB has begun employing an anonymous hotline where tipsters can out players they believe are juicing. The tips go directly to MLB’s new Department of Investigation, also a suggestion from the Mitchell Report. And…Read More

Ian Kennedy ‘Jerked Off’ Before Start

Yes, it’s true. At least according to YES Network broadcaster, David Cone: I have heard of relievers banging chicks from the stands in the clubhouse while the game was going on, and I’ve heard of relievers jerking themselves off while games were going on (also in the clubhouse), but I’ve never heard of a pitcher…Read More

Did MLB Agents Set Players Up With Steroids Doctor?

You know, this whole concept wouldn’t surprise me. Just think about the sheer basics here: agents make money off their clients, clients get more money if they produce more on the field, steroids increase production, agent refers player to steroids place, all parties are happy. Couple that cycle with the fact that many agencies are…Read More

Dioner Navarro Injured by a Net. Seriously

We already knew that baseball players sustained some odd injuries. Aaron Rowand got hurt playing tag, Raul Ibanez injured himself while sleeping, and some chick even got attacked by a bird while touring Fenway Pahk. No surprise then to hear how Rays catcher Dioner Navarro landed on the 15-day DL. Navarro was coming off the…Read More

Erik Bedard Afraid of Big, Bad, Baltimore

I remember last year when the same thing happened with Jason Schmidt. Schmitty was signed by the Dodgers’ to be their ace, but he was slated as the team’s No. 3 to begin the year in order to to avoid facing San Francisco in the opening week. This time around, it’s a different pitcher, different…Read More

How Long Before Dusty Baker Ruins Johnny Cueto?

In case you missed it Thursday, Reds rookie Johnny Cueto was rather impressive making his major league debut. The 22-year-old was perfect through his first five innings before giving up a solo HR to Justin Upton in the 6th, the only base-runner he allowed all game. Cueto went seven innings of one-run, one-hit ball, striking…Read More

Bobby Cox Displays Creative Genius

I love it when managers think outside the box. Too much of baseball is “by the book.” Guys playing percentages, playing Juan Pierre every day while benching Kemps and Ethiers. You just wish there was more creativity. Mike Scioscia is one of these guys, but even he took it too far when he put on…Read More

The Chinese Fascinated by Matt Kemp

Back in January, I told you about the Padres and Dodgers venturing to China for an exhibition series. Well, they’ve long since returned to the States, playing two regular season games apiece. Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp may not have worked his way onto Joe Torre’s list of favorites just yet, but seems like he was…Read More
