Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Front Office, MLB, Rumors,

But the situation developing with former Washington Nationals manager Jim Riggleman walking out on his team after they won a game on Thursday night has continued to pique interests nationwide. Riggleman cites a lack of respect as baseball’s lowest-paid manager as one reason why he chose to relieve himself as the skipper and leave.

Derek Lowe gets Opening Day call for third-straight season

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Derek LoweThe Atlanta Braves announced that for the third consecutive season, they’ll give the ball to Derek Lowe on Opening Day. The Braves will travel from sunny Florida up to Washington to take on the Nationals in one of this year’s untraditional March 31 kickoff games. Even at the ripe age of 37, Lowe still has enough gas left in his tank for a 15th season as a major league pitcher. At least that’s what the Braves organization is hoping for.

Dotel leaves Dodgers like so many before him

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB, Trades,

Octavio DotelFirst Manny, now Octavio. The Dodgers released another of their older roster players on Saturday when the Rockies claimed Octavio Dotel off waivers for a player to be named later. The Dodgers aren’t mathematically eliminated from the postseason yet, but it will take a heck of a lot of stumbling around for them to make a playoff push. By this time next week, the Dodgers will be playing rookies and resting veterans; if they have any left, that is.

Scott PodsednikScott Podsednik is moving west… again. The 34-year-old outfielder was traded by the Kansas City Royals to the Los Angeles Dodgers. This will be Podsednik’s sixth major league team that he has played for, including two stints with the White Sox. The Dodgers picked up the veteran while giving back two prospects – catcher Lucas May and right-hander Elisaul Pimentel – to the Royals. Podsednik made his Dodgers debut on Thursday night, going 0-for-3 with a walk, strikeout, stolen base and error.

Ubaldo Jimenez keeps on rolling and wins his 12th game

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, MLB, News,

Ubaldo Jimenez

The Colorado Rockies’ Ubaldo Jimenez keeps on rolling.  He won his 12th game of the season against only one loss and still sports a spectacular 1.16 ERA.  The reason for “still” in the previous sentence is because coming into the game, Jimenez had a ridiculous 0.93 ERA.  However, Jimenez gave up three runs and an uncharacteristic five walks in six innings versus the visiting Toronto Blue Jays.  The three earned runs were the most Jimenez has given up in a game in 13 games.  Amazingly, Jimenez has received a decision in every contest he’s been in .  His only loss was a 2-0 defeat by the division rival, Los Angeles Dodgers on May 9, in which Jimenez only gave up one run in seven innings or work.  Regardless, Jimenez is the hottest pitcher going right now.

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Nomar GarciaparraNomar Garciaparra ended his MLB career where it began; with the Boston Red Sox. As one of the most beloved Sox in recent history, his desire to return to Boston to finish his career was granted earlier today when he signed a one-day minor league contract with the Red Sox and then announced his retirement from baseball as a member of the team he has always missed. He will transition to the broadcast booth as a member of the EPSN “Baseball Tonight” crew as well as an occasional game analyst.

Manny sticking around for years to come

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Editorial, MLB,

Manny RamirezManny Ramirez has come out and said that this will be his last year in a Dodger uniform. He’ll play as much as he’s asked to play, but once his contract expires, he’ll either look for a DH role with an American League team or even consider retirement. After teams failed to show significant interest prior to 2009, Manny signed a deal with Los Angeles that could have seen him test free agency again for this year, but he opted to stay in California, which was probably in his best interests.

Roy Halladay sweepstakes getting thicker

Roy HalladayThe Roy Halladay Sweepstakes Part Two have just became more interesting.  With rumors swirling that the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees have both shown interest, joined by reports from the Los Angeles Dodgers earlier this week, it seems like the Toronto Blue Jays – controller of the most sought after non-free agent – may have a tough decision ahead of them this winter. Reports say that the rumors now include the Chicago Cubs. The sad part is that this is not news. Any team with any interest in winning in 2010 is going to be looking at Halladay. The only question to be asked is who can afford him?
