    He had the golden sombrero in his last game before doubling in his 5th AB. He's going to play CF from here on out. He'll be back June 1.

    Miggy out a couple weeks...

    Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera suffered a small fracture in the bone under his right eye after getting hit by a hard grounder in a spring training game Monday.

    Cabrera, who received eight stitches to close the bloody wound, told ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney Tuesday that the team would re-evaluate him in a week, but he likely will be out at least a couple of weeks. Cabrera's vision is fine, according to the team.

    "I was lucky," he told Olney.

    Cabrera left the game, a 4-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies, after taking the wicked one-hopper off the bat of Hunter Pence.

    Cabrera's head snapped back as the ball shot up. He stayed on his feet, but seemed dazed as he wiped blood from his face.

    "It swelled up," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. "Basically he looked like a fighter that needed a cut man and wasn't doing any good in the fight."

    Cabrera is making the transition back to third base this spring because Detroit signed first baseman Prince Fielder. Even a Gold Glove third baseman likely would have been hit by Pence's shot.

    "He'd be in the same place as Cabrera, getting stitches," Leyland said when asked whether anyone else would have had a chance to make the play.

    Thanks for the update. Nice to see some central Texas teams in the 5A top 10. I see Westwood is continuing it's winning tradition sitting pretty at 2-10. Hard to believe Bratcher still coaches there.

    Anyone here get the MLB.tv package? I’m seriously considering getting the premium package this year that allows you to stream all the games from your xbox or ps3. But I have concerns over their blackout policy. From what I’ve read it seems pretty strict and looks like I wouldn’t get any Astros or Rangers games. I’m also not sure if it’s worth the $125 a year.

    Does anyone know if there would be any problems with streaming at two different locations from the same account, if I wanted to split it with a friend?

    When I had it, you could get it wherever, but I believe that has changed. I think that now you can only get it on one system, be it your computer, PS3 or whatever. Blackouts suck. You will NOT get the rangers or astros live. You will get them the next day. On the next day note, get the premium package (or whatever they call it). This has the condensed games that are ready usually by the next morning. These have the pitches of every hit/run/out/steal/etc without anything else. These are great to watch for the Oakland/Seattle/F the Angels series when the games start at ten and end at one. Spent many a morning with my office door shut watching a couple of important games. These condensed games usually last about 10 minutes and are a great way to catch up.

    If you find out that I'm wrong about the one system thing, please post back, because I'll be getting this myself if I can watch at home and at work. Hope this helped.

    ^^^^^

    Thanks for the input. I went ahead and pulled the trigger and am pretty happy with the purchase. Just watched bits of 5 spring training games from earlier today. I’ve also been without cable for the past 6 years and my MLB knowledge has dropped to embarrassing levels. Baseball Tonight used to rock me to bed every night, so hopefully this will get me back up to speed.

    As far as accessing games on only one system, I’m not sure that is correct. I was able to watch games on my work laptop, my home laptop, and my PS3. I’m hoping that is how it will be for all live games and not just the archived games, but so far so good.

    Huge HS game in Rockwall tonight with Rockwall vs Rockwall Heath

    The following recruits were playing:

    Heath: Bret Boswell - Texas (2013), Jake Thompson - TCU, Jovan Hernandez - Undecided (former Tech commit)

    Rockwall: Steve Bean - Texas, Spencer Edwards - Texas

    Heath won 9-0....surprising outcome.

    Jake Thompson is very impressive, was throwing in the low 90's into the 7th inning, expect him to be difference maker from Day 1 at TCU....pitched a gem, K'd 16, gave up 1 hit, walked 1 (did hit 3)

    Bret Boswell was 1 for 5, nice plate presence for his age.

    Steve Bean has a CANNON....he was 0-3 at the plate.

    Spencer Edwards 0-2 (2 K's, HBP)

    Spencer Edwards can really run, he's going to be a base stealer at Texas, great footwork defensively.

    LOL @ Joba Chamberlain...

    http://mlb.sbnation.com/2012/3/23/28...w-york-yankees

    Joba Chamberlain dislocated right ankle yesterday and had surgery last night. Cashman called it a significant injury.

    Cashman said Joba injured himself while playing with his son. They were jumping around on a "trampoline" of sorts.

    Cashman said Joba's injury was an "open dislocation." He is in hospital and will be there for several days. Girardi visited him this morning

    I take back my LOL...yikes!

    http://deadspin.com/5895990/

    A gruesome and scary update to the story of Joba Chamberlain, who yesterday suffered an open dislocation while playing with his son at a Florida indoor trampoline arena. Via Hardball Talk,

    Joba Chamberlain lost so much blood Thursday when he hurt his ankle while playing with his son that there initially was concern for his life, a Yankees' source said.

    An open dislocation is not a regular old dislocation that can be popped back into place. It's when the bone shoots through the skin. Don't google it.

    Chamberlain's son, Karter, who is five years old, was unhurt, Cashman said. When Chamberlain was hurt, bone was sticking out of his ankle and he was bleeding profusely, a team source said. Paramedics were called and Chamberlain was taken by ambulance to the hospital.

    That's it for Joba's season, and, potentially, his career.

    The Reds kinda $#@!ed up here...

    Before Ryan Madson got to pitch in a game for the Reds, the season is already over for the club's new closer.

    Following an examination in Cincinnati on Saturday morning, the club said that Madson's elbow ligament had torn off the bone. Madson will need season-ending Tommy John surgery. A date for the surgery has not been set.

    "He obviously feels terrible about it," Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said. "He felt fine all spring until lately. Even after he sat out a little bit, he felt real good. After his last session the other day, it got real tight. Even before he left yesterday, he said he felt fine. Obviously, he wasn't."

    Madson had not pitched in any Cactus League games, because of what was originally diagnosed as right elbow irritation in late February. The injury, which he said was something he had dealt with in past springs with the Phillies, was not considered serious by team medical director Dr. Tim Kremchek. It was Kremchek who also made Saturday's diagnosis.

    In recent weeks, the news had been positive about Madson's progress. He pitched in a few side bullpen sessions with gradually increased pitch counts. On Tuesday, he threw 20 pitches in a simulated game.

    "Dr. Kremchek said from the way he was bleeding and stuff, it was a recent tear," Jocketty said.

    Considered one of the club's prized offseason acquisitions in its efforts to reach the playoffs in 2012, Madson came to the Reds at a relative bargain with a one-year, $8.5 million contract. He was to be paid $6 million this season, and he had an $11 million mutual option for '13 that carried a $2.5 million buyout. A physical was successfully completed before the contract was finalized.

    The Reds did not take out insurance on the contract, because it is club policy not to to have insurance on one-year contracts.

    #1 overall pick of the '04 draft...

    Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Matt Bush is being held on more than $1 million bail on charges that he left the scene of an accident that seriously injured a motorcyclist.

    Bush made his first court appearance Saturday. Charlotte County Circuit Court records show that Bush remained in custody on multiple DUI-related charges and counts of leaving the scene of an injury accident and driving with a suspended license.

    The Florida Highway Patrol said Bush kept driving after hitting a motorcycle Thursday. The motorcyclist remains hospitalized.

    Bush's attorney, Russell Kirshy, said the baseball player likely would enter a rehab program once he gets released.

    Kirshy said, "We hope and pray the victim is OK, and we hope and pray we can get Matt back on track."

    Bush looked like he was going to have a ML career as a relief pitcher.

    I don't know if the article mentions it, but he had a .18 BAC and actually ran over the cyclist's head. If the guy hadn't been wearing a helmet, Bush would be facing involuntary manslaughter at the least.

I didn't get a close look, but it didn't look good. Their score keeper said there was a hole in his upper lip... He had a bad day. He'd hit a should-be triple off our starter in his previous at-bat and strained/pulled his quad. Then he limped up to the plate against me...

    Well, the Casey Blake experiment didn't last long...

    The Rockies unconditionally released third baseman Casey Blake on Tuesday, which most likely means the club will go young at the position to start the season.

    Blake, 38, signed a $2 million, non-guaranteed contract with the club during the offseason, after his 2011 season with the Dodgers was shortened because of neck surgery. According to the contract, the Rockies owed Blake $491,000.

    An 0-for-14 start to the spring and a neck injury that cost him a week put him behind. In the last several days, Blake had a two-hit game and a two-run homer. Blake finished the spring hitting .150 (3-for-20).

    "Once we made the decision that Casey was not going to make our club, we wanted to do what was best for him," Rockies general manager Dan O'Dowd said in the club's press release. "It was an absolute pleasure to have Casey wear a Rockies uniform. His professionalism and work ethic were tremendous additions to our camp and we wish him the best of luck."

    Blake has batted .264 with 264 doubles, 18 triples, 167 home runs and 616 RBIs in 1,265 career games with the Blue Jays, Twins, Indians and Dodgers. His reaction was gracious.

    "I understand the decision," Blake said. "I appreciated the opportunity and wish them success."

    Chris Nelson, 26, the Rockies' No. 1 Draft pick in 2004, has received ample opportunity at third base in camp and entered Tuesday with a .267 batting average, one home run and three RBIs.

    The club also has been taking a longer look at Jordan Pacheco, 26, at third base. Pacheco, whose best defensive position has been catcher, entered his start at third on Tuesday with a .436 batting average, one home run and seven RBIs.

    "We have younger alternatives that we like, that we will continue to evaluate," O'Dowd said.

    It's not clear if the release of Blake will help the chances of utility man Jonathan Herrera, 27, to make the Opening Day roster. Herrera entered Tuesday hitting .385 this spring and has played multiple positions defensively. The only issue is Herrera has a Minor League option, which means he can be sent down without being exposed to other clubs via waivers.

    Nelson and infielder-outfielder Eric Young Jr., 26, who entered Tuesday hitting .278 with six stolen bases and is battling for an Opening Day spot, have exhausted their Minor League options.

    The departure of Blake could allow catching prospect Wilin Rosario, 23, to make the Opening Day roster. Having Rosario would allow Pacheco to be freed from from backup catching duties, and on days he doesn't start manager Jim Tracy could use him in offensive situations. Veteran non-roster candidate Wil Nieves, 34, is another backup catching possibility.

    Agreed, two games that count followed by another handful of meaningless exhibition games is pretty $#@!ing stupid.

    They want to give the teams a chance to readjust after the travel before playing more regular season games.

    I like having a couple games overseas but I sure wouldn't want my team in them. Too worried a random loss in unusual conditions would come back to hurt in September, also might throw them off the first week or so in April. In this case the A's and Mariners aren't doing anything this year anyway.

    Good for him...

    Omar Vizquel was added to the Toronto Blue Jays' roster Wednesday a month before his 45th birthday, making the backup infielder the oldest active position player in the major leagues.

    The 11-time Gold Glove winner had signed a minor league contract on Jan. 23. He spent the previous two years with the Chicago White Sox as a utilityman and mentor to younger players.

    Vizquel turns 45 on April 24. The three-time All-Star shortstop from Venezuela is batting .433 in 15 spring games. He had a bunt single and scored a run in Toronto's 9-3 victory Wednesday over Baltimore.

    The Blue Jays optioned Mike McCoy, Vizquel's primary competition, to Triple-A Las Vegas after the game.

    Does anyone follow the Dodgers organization closely? If so, any thoughts on Shawn Tolleson? I keep reading articles saying he is the future closer for the Dodgers and one of the most highly regarded prospects. I know he got the invite to spring training, does he have a shot to be with big league club at some point this year?

    Wow...

    At 49, Jamie Moyer is still defying the baseball logic of both age and velocity.

    Rockies manager Jim Tracy announced Friday that Moyer will be in the club's starting rotation when the season begins next week -- as the No. 2 starter, no less.

    On April 7 in Houston, the veteran left-hander will make his first start with Colorado -- a club that wasn't in existence when he made his debut on June 16, 1986 against Steve Carlton. Should he pick up the win, Moyer would be the oldest pitcher to ever record a Major League victory.

    Seattle ain't mad about this...

    An MRI of Michael Pineda's sore right shoulder showed no structural damage, just tendinitis, a development Yankees manager Joe Girardi termed "great news."

    Still, the 23-year-old right-hander, acquired from Seattle in January in the trade for Jesus Montero, will begin his first Yankees season on the disabled list, and the date of his first start remains undetermined.


    Pineda underwent treatment, including icing, at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa after an MRI exam on Saturday. The right-hander doesn't know when he'll resume playing catch.

    "I'm feeling a little better," Pineda said. "A little sore. I'm a little sad. I'll be OK."

    Pineda had experienced soreness in the back of his right shoulder on Friday night.

    "I'm pitching this year," Pineda said. "I'm coming back strong."

    Girardi, asked if he considered the MRI results good news, called them "great news.''

    "We'll be conservative with him,'' Girardi said Saturday. "He'll get treatment and we'll see how long it is.''

    The Yankees feared the worst Friday night when Pineda got knocked around by the Philadelphia Phillies. He gave up six runs in 2 2/3 innings, and afterward informed the club that his shoulder was "a little sore."

    Once again, Pineda had been unable to generate the kind of velocity on his fastball that he had shown regularly in Seattle, where he averaged 95 mph his rookie season. His fastball Friday was between 89-91 mph, with one reading as high as 94 mph, according to the YES Network radar gun.

    But a scout who spoke with ESPNNewYork.com's Andrew Marchand said he clocked Pineda between 88-92 mph.

    The concern about Pineda's velocity caused the Yankees to ask him several times the past few weeks if his arm felt OK, and according to Girardi and general manager Brian Cashman, Pineda always told them it did.

    But Cashman said Friday night that Pineda's relatively low gun readings were "a red flag," a sentiment Girardi repeated before Saturday's game against the Houston Astros.

    "There was always that curiosity, you know, why isn't it going up higher, and as you're looking for answers we're looking, too, trying to figure out why isn't the velocity where it was last year,'' Girardi said. "Is it the innings, is he just not ready to turn it loose, you know, what is it? None of us are ever really going to know but right now, he's shut down and we'll get him back as soon as we can.''

    Pineda also had problems with his mechanics and his control Friday night, and after the game told reporters he was consciously trying to throw his fastball harder. Asked if he thought that might have contributed to Pineda's injury, Girardi said, "I can't tell you exactly what it is.''

    Now, the Yankees starting rotation is as follows: CC Sabathia pitches the opener on Friday against the Rays in St. Petersburg, followed by Hiroki Kuroda on Saturday and Phil Hughes on Sunday. Ivan Nova opens the series against the Orioles on Monday and Freddy Garcia goes Tuesday.

    Pineda's injury in his first season after pitching 171 innings in his rookie season recalled what happened last season to Hughes, who followed his 18-win, 176 1/3 inning 2010 season with an injury-riddled and fastball-deprived 2011.

    Hughes, too, was diagnosed with shoulder tendinitis and wound up missing three months of the season, finishing 5-5 with a 5.79 ERA.

    "They both got tendinitis, but I wouldn't necessarily say they're similar (injuries)," Girardi said. "There's a lot of parts to that shoulder. It's unfortunate that (Pineda) isn't feeling 100 percent but I think we'll get him back here, I really believe that."

    That's a lot of cash, but Cain is terrific and it would have pained me to see him pitch someplace else. The price for Lince$#@! in a couple of years is going to be astronomical.
