Found June 07, 2013 on Baseball Hot Corner:
Manny Ramirez dialled long distance for the 7th time this season for the EDA Rhinos of the Chinese Professional Baseball League. The announcer who called the shot compared the blast to an ex-girlfriend stating “This ball is gone just like an ex-girlfriend who will never return.” A reference even Vin Scully would be proud of, television magic in “Manny-Land”.

Josh Donaldson Bringing The Swing Back To The Swinging A`s

There is a third baseman in the American league right now that is playing superb baseball. His glove is gold material, his bat is hot, and he plays the game like he is still in the sandlot. No, I am not talking about Miguel Cabrera, I’m talking about the Athletics sophomore Josh Donaldson. It`s unfortunate that this young man won`t be going to the all-star game this year. It is...

Jose Canseco cleared in sexual assault case, still remains a d-bag

Former juiced up MLB outfielder has been cleared of any criminal charges stemming from a sexual assault claim by a Las Vegas woman last month, but was sad to learn that his exoneration did absolutely nothing for his public image. The still d-bag said the woman “alleged I drugged her and raped her,” Canseco said in a telephone interview, via USA Today Sports. “It was an outright...

Canseco cleared in sexual assault case

Police in Las Vegas have cleared former baseball slugger Jose Canseco after an investigation of a woman's rape claim. Officer Jose Hernandez said Friday that detectives closed the sexual assault case with a decision not to seek criminal charges. The 48-year-old Canseco was never arrested in the case. He went public about the investigation May 22 with postings on the social...

Underrated Athletics

A majority of the fantasy coverage on the main sites (ESPN, Baseball Prospectus, FanGraphs) centers around players that are relevant in mixed leagues. When an injury occurs, a players replacement is deemed mixed league worthy, or not. However, guys who get around 350 plate appearances each year, platoon players, are tremendously valuable fantasy assets in only-leagues, even if they...

Donaldson deserves All-Star spot

courtesy of NBC Bay Area The current All-Star voting snub of Josh Donaldson goes to show stats nerds and WAR geeks do not select the mid-summer classic’s roster. Donaldson, who ranks in the top 10 of every major offensive statistical category for third baseman in MLB, has not even cracked the top five in the All-Star voting. We all know there is an element of popularity that plays...

Cusp Dwellers: River Cats Awaiting Promotion to Oakland

Photo Credit: em.crowell on Flickr Grant Green, 2B – Green has been tabbed in prospect rankings and subsequently monitored in the dynasty universe since being drafted 13th overall back in 2009. We’re still waiting. A prodigious collegiate career at USC, two ‘Futures’ invites (MVP in 2011) and consistent MiLB production still has not resulted in a single major league plate...

Athletics 5, White Sox 4(10)

Adam Rosales hit a two-out homer in the top of the 10th inning, and the Oakland Athletics had a season high four home runs in a 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night. Rosales' fourth homer of the season came off White Sox reliever Matt Thornton (0-2), a 1-1 pitch that was just fair to left field. Yoenis Cespedes hit two home runs for the second time in three...

For the second time in a week, Jarrod Parker and the A’s beat Chris Sale and the White Sox, taking the second game of the four-game series by a score of 4-3. In typical A’s fashion, it was a hard-fought, nail-biting win – for a few reasons. Parker gave up runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings – on a solo homer from Tyler Flowers and sacrifice flies from Dayan Viciedo...

The A’s second-year star slugger connected again for a pair of solo-homers against the Chicago White Sox Thursday in the A’s 5-4 extra-inning win.
