Not long ago the Mariners benched Brendan Ryan for Robert Andino.
As of last year Alex Rodriguez had his house in Miami on the market for an asking price of $38 million and Darren Rovell of ESPN.com reports that he finally sold the place for $30 million.
He’s still employed by the Dodgers. And Davey Johnson is still employed by the Nats. But the latter situation is only going to last for this year and the former could end at any time.
How long is a pitcher sidelined after he punches a locker with his pitching hand and breaks it (the hand, not the locker)? Well, in Ryan Mattheus‘ case 4-6 weeks.
I was a big fan of Drew Sheppard’s Gif of Yu Darvish throwing five different pitches. As were some folks in Japan, who inexplicably made that post the most-read thing in the history of HardballTalk.
