Hall of Famer and former Indians designated hitter Eddie Murray was charged with insider training by the SEC, “The Securities and Exchange Commission, however, doesn’t look as favorably at people who can play both sides of something.  The Baltimore Orioles legend learned that the hard way, being charged with insider trading on Friday as part of a probe that involved his old teammate Doug DeCinces.” [Big League Stew]

Over at Eleven Warriors, Camp Meyer is underway and there are several valuable pieces of infromation here, including, “The great mystery of Adam Bellamy was solved, and it sounds like a sad situation. He has left the team due to personal reasons involving his family. When and if he returns, defensive line coach Mike Vrabel said he’d be welcomed with open arms. Another piece of bad news learned today: sports information director Jerry Emig said freshman offensive lineman Joey O’Connor will redshirt this season because of a knee injury. He underwent surgery earlier this week.” [Eleven Warriors]

Over at the AFC North Blog, Jamison Hensley organized a poll for the top cornerback in the division. Cleveland’s Joe Haden took the crown, “What separates Haden and Webb is their ability to make plays. All of these cornerbacks are talented and are a big reason why their defenses rank so high against the pass. But cornerbacks need to be playmakers. Haden intercepted six passes as a rookie and broke up 19 throws last season. Webb made eight interceptions last season, including three in the playoffs. ” [ESPN AFC North Blog]

Ninety-two years ago yesterday, the Indians were struck by tragedy with the loss of Ray Chapman. It’s Pronounced Lajaway recounts the sad occasion, “It was on this day in 1920 that Cleveland Indians shortstop (and occasional second baseman) Ray Chapman “Chappie” passed away.  The day before, Chapman was hit in the head by New York Yankees pitcher Carl Mays in the top of the 5th inning in a game at the Polo Grounds.  In 1920, Major League Baseball players didn’t wear batting helmets; the pitched ball actually fractured Chapman’s skull.  The 29-year-old Chapman lived through the night and died the next day in New York’s St. Lawrence Hospital.” [It's Prononced Lajaway]
