Attorneys for Ryan Zimmerman, Ryan Howard send letters to Al Jazeera America demanding retraction - The Washington Post
I didn’t watch the full video. Is this report based entirely on the guy/intern who retracted his claims?

Nobody wants him at his price. At least right now.
[bq]The object of considerable attention among the authors of this site, it’s probably not inaccurate to suggest that infielder/outfielder Mookie Betts is riddled with virtue. Or perhaps, afflicted by virtue. In either case, what he’s done is to parlay wide-ranging competence into a star-level profile. He’s projected to produce nearly a 20-20 season while also recording a strikeout rate of about 12%. He certainly doesn’t possess the skill set typical of a right fielder, but he’s ...Read More...

Minor League pay is not just an ownership problem. It’s also a player problem. The players should be pushing to increase the owners to increase the Minor League players’ share of MLB revenue. Doubling or tripling their pay would be a small piece of the overall pie.

These kids, Kevin Pillar and Kyle Schwarber, I would instead put in the Union Army. Granted, Schwarber’s look suggests “Union soldier” less than “often drunk frat boy.” However, his round, well-fed face fits the better-supplied Northern ranks, and that tuft carries a hint of Pennsylvania Dutch farmer with it. JDavis1He needs to be careful, though. Grow it out too low, and he’ll end up resembling Confederate President Jefferson Davis.
Luckily the Yankees have some big contracts coming off the books.
Geoff Baker wants the Mariners to break open the piggy bank.

Noah is happy to have Big Sexy back.
Michael Silverman’s ballot.
