I rarely post anything that isn’t Mets related, but I hope people had a chance to watch yesterday’s game between the Yankees and Red Sox in Fenway Park. Another chapter was written into one of the most storied rivalries in sports. In the second inning, Alex Rodriguez walked to the plate engulfed in a tidal wave of boos to face Ryan Dempster. Fans started chanting “You’re-a, chea-ter.” Dempster set the tone by throwing the first […]
While everybody in the sports world is focused on Alex Rodriguez today, the Mets universe just imploded with news that not one but TWO New York Mets will be suspended by MLB for 50 games. Look, we all knew that Cesar Puello was involved. It was just a matter of time, and I still contend to this day that since the Mets knew that he was involved they didn’t feel rushed to promote Puello. With […]
Jon Heyman provided his opinion and interpretation on the latest happenings with Biogenesis, and Mets outfield prospect, Cesar Puello, is included. Obviously, this article is mostly focused on Alex Rodriguez because he’s likely going to get the biggest suspension, but here’s what Heyman said in his latest article: The nine or so Biogenesis-linked players who may take deals in the next day or two: Mariners catcher Jesus Montero; Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta; Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz; Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli; Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera; minor leaguers Jordan Norberto, Fernando Martinez, Fautino de los Santos and […]
Major League Baseball has reportedly informed the union of which players they intend to suspend in the Biogenesis case according to the Associated Press. Alex Rodriguez highlights the list of those expected to be punished, however a number of other prominent players could face bans that could significantly impact the playoff hunt, forcing several potentially affected teams into a last-minute frenzy for insurance now a mere hours before the 4pm trade deadline. One of those […]
Kudos to Milwaukee owner Mark Attanasio for his immediate gesture to Brewers fans in the wake of the 65-game suspension of Ryan Braun. But, will it end there? Could the Brewers want to clean up their mess by trading Braun? And if so, could the Mets be a fit? Yes, Braun got off on a technicality the first time and Major League Baseball has had it in for him since. It was only a matter […]
Alex Rodriguez has remained intent on fighting whatever suspension Major League Baseball decides for the disgraced Yankee third baseman, and should he choose to do so, Bud Selig is prepared to use one of his most extreme powers as commissioner; the right to “take action to preserve the integrity of the game” reports the Daily News. By invoking that rarely used power — embodied in Article XI, Section A1b of the game’s collective bargaining agreement […]
According to ESPN’s Jim Bowden, Major League Baseball has just approved the trade of Alfonso Soriano from the Cubs to Yankees. Bowden said that Soriano officially waived his no-trade rights and the trade is now official. The Cubs will pay roughly $17.7 million of the approximately $24.5 million left on Soriano‘s contract, and that they are considering several low-level minor league pitching prospects in return. Soriano returns to the Yankees, with whom he made his major league […]
With the potential for suspensions to be brought down on superstars like Alex Rodriguez, and Ryan Braun as well as several other prominent players, I am reminded of the double standard that exists in today’s world when it comes to sports. The steroid era changed everything. When it all began to unravel, the media lead the public down a path of deciding that these crimes against the sport should leave fans outraged and make us […]
T.J. Quinn and Mike Fish of ESPN are reporting that the MLB is set to suspend a number of players connected to the BioGenesis clinic, headlined by Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun. The suspensions are set to take place post-AS Break. Braun has become vilified in the media because of his attitude towards this whole investigation, and the article highlights the fact that he refused to answer any questions that MLB asked him. Granted, I’m fairly […]
