The Blue Jays have released B.J. Ryan. He probably has about $14-15 million left on that $47 million deal they gave him. That’s on top of the $99 million or so they owe Vernon Wells through 2014, the $61 million or so they owe Alex Rios through 2014, and the combined $26.5 million or so […]
No, not me. I mean, sure, he’s on my Scoresheet team because I’m the worst fantasy baseball player in the history of history, but I can’t really defend the guy. Jorge Costales takes a stab at it, however. His Brian Roberts comparison is interesting: Even my late night cursory look at other 2B revealed that […]
It’s like a family secret around here, the embarrassing aunt who wets her pants in public that nobody will talk about. – Longtime commenter and A’s fan, APBA Guy, on the curious silence of the Bay Area sporting press regarding Jason Giambi’s slide into .195/.331/.371 oblivion.

Things to read when you realize just how rough it is out there in the big, big world: New Yorkers fail to bring the hate. He said-he said re: the Jeter tag. Kenny Williams is miffed that White Sox fans wouldn’t overpay to watch the Dodgers when they were in town. Stan Conte will have […]
Not that he knew what was happening or anything, but check out the kid on the far right of this picture laughing at Ryan Dempster breaking a bone.
A look at the control a hitter has over his own line drive rate.
Dodgers 8, Mets 0: Somewhere on Long Island there’s a guy who went to last night’s game for the express purpose of booing Manny and holding up a sign with a syringe on it or something. And, yes, Manny was booed and was even ejected from the game for arguing balls and strikes! Dude from […]
Ian Stewart has some early signs he might become the next Mark Reynolds and with second base eligibility perhaps a cheap Chase Utley for 2010.
