Jamie Moyer is less than a year away from being as old as the number on the back of his uniform, 50. Yet the crafty left-hander is back on the mound, trying to make a comeback after having Tommy John surgery. Moyer is competing for a spot in Colorado's rotation and was solid in his second spring training outing. He allowed a run in three innings and a Rockies split squad beat the Chicago White 5-2 Sox on Sunday. ''I feel pretty healthy,'' Moyer said. ''It's mind over matter. I want to play. I believe I can play.'' John Danks, who is expected to be Chicago's opening day starter, struggled with his command, walking four and allowing three runs - one earned - in three innings. Jason Giambi went 2 for 2 with a double and a walk for the Rockies. Moyer tried out a cutter Sunday, throwing it twice. One cutter resulted in a ball. The other resulted in a base hit. He said he needs to build his endurance, and arm strength will help him throw t...

Ozzie Guillen was right when he said he was one of the best things to happen to Chicago. I know, I know, he’s no longer with Chicago, but his presence is still a great thing for baseball. Ozzie was ejected in the sixth inning of the Marlins-Red Sox spring training game Monday for arguing a call. He had to walk across the field to exit through the Boston dugout. Opposing manager...

Ozzie Guillen to Bobby Valentine: go f*** yourself

In today's practice game, Ozzie made sure the umps knew that the ball never reached the bag and also that just because he's sippin' on pina coladas and mojitos in south beach, doesn’t mean he’s going to be taking no crap this season. As Ozzie stomped towards the locker-room Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine gave him a little wave, which unfortunately he did not see...
