This news has also been confirmed by the Tacoma News Tribune, also by Jeff Passan via Twitter. Most sources seem agree he is in ICU and it was a head injury. Apparently he was hit by a boat while swimming in the ocean. Best wishes to Mr. Sanchez and his family.

Joel Sherman makes a list.
The rewind: Giants center fielder Gregor Blanco misplayed Gordon’s base hit and the ball rolled to the wall at Kauffman Stadium, where left fielder Juan Perez complicated matters by mishandling it. Gordon kept running, not always at full go, until given the stop sign by Royals third-base coach Mike Jirschele.
What if Gordon had kept motoring and tried to score from third?
The answer remains forever unknown. But the wondering will never cease.
In that spirit, the Rockhurst University ...Read More...

Sean, you need to get on this.
Orioles questions that need answering.
This is some good stuff from Fangraph’s Kiley McDaniel. Although it’s nice reading about prospects, it’s even better to get a glimpse of them.
I liked the Semien comment. A lot of people don’t think Semien has the chops to handle shortstop on a regular basis. When you look at it from this perspective, though, it doesn’t seem to be a stretch to have him stay there.
Delmonico, 22, is still under a 50-game suspension for testing positive for an amphetamine late last July. Baseball America reported he has been signed by the Chicago White Sox.
Delmonico was acquired from Baltimore in exchange for reliever Francisco Rodriguez in late July 2013 and immediately was listed among the Brewers’ top prospects. The organization had a void at that position and it was hoped he would rise through the system and fulfill his potential.

I’ve always been fascinated and awed by Branch Rickey. His selection as the number one general manager is well deserved.
Maybe the Phillies should let Pat Gillick do whatever he wants.
This is a few weeks old but I don’t believe it was posted. Kiley McDaniel makes some very good points about prospect rankings.
Some touching stuff on baseball’s first female beat writer. Good quotes from Lloyd Moseby, and you get a hint of what she went through in the early 80s. RIP
It was in the late 1970s that female sportswriters began to push back against their long held prohibition from men’s locker rooms. After Sports Illustrated reporter Melissa Ludtke was barred from the New York Yankees’ clubhouse during the 1977 World Series, she filed a discrimination lawsuit against Major League Baseball. She won the ...Read More...
Pittsburgh Press, February 13, 1915:
Sisler was in the big leagues for good as a 1B/RF/P by June 1915.
Obviously he was a terrific hitter, but (as I’ve mentioned ...Read More...

My first reaction was, “The balls on these guys.” Then I read the article which says they have a “20-year contract that granted rooftop owners the right to sell tickets to games.”
Well, that’s out of the blue.
