Found August 22, 2012 on The Outside Corner:
Your browser does not support iframes. The triple play is a rare feat in baseball, but it's not one of those extremely rare moments like the perfect game (well, before the last three years...) or the four homer game. Tuesday night in Oakland, Trevor Plouffe grounded to third baseman Josh Donaldson, who stepped on the bag and fired to second baseman Adam Rosales, who in turn gunned it over to first baseman Chris Carter. Bam, a triple play, and the elusive around-the-horn one to boot. Well done, A's...well done. Maybe it just is their year... [follow]

Pitcher's wife sends hubby PED zinger

The wife of A's pitcher Brandon McCarthy sent her husband a zinger that tied in PEDs and made a joke about him on a personal level.

Amanda McCarthy wants her husband to use ExtenZe

Oakland A’s starting pitcher, Brandon McCarthy, has an awesome wife. Amanada McCarthy gives us the best Tweet we have seen in awhile, when she asked @MLB if a natural male enhancement supplement is on the approved list with the league. Hey @mlb, extenze is offering a two week free trial that I want to get [...]

Bartolo Colon's Suspension Makes It Hard to Believe Performance-Enhancing Drugs Are Out of Baseball

News flash: A 39-year-old pitcher who is leading a division contender with his best ERA in nine years has been caught using performance-enhancing drugs. Not surprised? Not surprised, either, that this man has also been at the center of rumors that he may actually be two years older than he says, and that the great season he posted last year after shoulder surgery may have been aided...

Bartolo Colon Yet Another Player Suspended for Testosterone

The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that Oakland Athletics pitcher Bartolo Colon has received a 50-game suspension without pay after testing positive for Testosterone, a performance-enhancing substance in violation of Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. The suspension of Colon is effective immediately. Colon did not try...

Bartolo Colon Fails Drug Test

According to multiple reports Oakland Athletics veteran starting pitcher, Bartolo Colon, has been suspended 50 games by Major League Baseball for a failed drug test. Colon’s failed test results indicated that an abnormal amount of testosterone was in his system.  This is the second player ban by Major League Baseball this month for PED use. Colon will miss the remainder of 2012...

If it looks like a duck, and it quacks like a duck, sometimes it means Bartolo Colon used steroids.

Something fishy about the success of a chubby thirty-nine year old Bartolo Colon? A week ago I wrote a post suggesting that we probably should have seen Melky Cabrera’s steroid suspension coming.  There was a clear spike in his numbers at the beginning of last season.  Yesterday Bartolo Colon received the same 50 game suspension from MLB for illegal testosterone use.  But...

Brett Anderson Looks Like Brett Anderson at Just the Right Time

Let’s just go ahead and get this out of the way now: there’s no such thing as a good time to lose a starting pitcher like Bartolo Colon. Over 24 starts with the A’s, Colon posted a 3.43 ERA and peripherals that make him look only a little less good, and Colon has been a big part of Oakland’s attempted playoff push. Now he’s done, having been found out for cheating, and...

A's Lose Colon To Drug Ban

The Oakland A's chances at a post-season run took a hit on Wednesday when it was announced that veteran starter Bartolo Colon will be suspended for 50 games following a violation of the MLB drug prevention program. The 50-game suspension will through the rest of the regular season.

Bartolo Colon suspended 50 games for positive test

The Indians have old and new history with Bartolo Colon. The one-time Tribe ace most recently beat the Tribe at the age of 39 as a member of the Athletics on August 18th. No fake websites for Colon. He’s taken full responsibility for the incident. ”I apologize to the fans, to my teammates and to the Oakland A’s,” Colon said in a statement released by the players’ association...

A 'Spark' For A's Minor League Hitters

WEST SACRAMENTO, CA - The Oakland A's haven't had a winning season since 2006. It’s no coincidence during those five down years, Oakland has struggled to develop hitters who have succeeded at the major league level. That has changed this season, as the team has received sizable contributions from promoted players such as Brandon Moss, Chris Carter, Derek Norris and most...

Bartolo Colon to be suspended 50 games

Athletics 5, Twins 1

Coco Crisp homered, hit an RBI double and scored three runs, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Minnesota Twins 5-1 on Wednesday for their second straight winning series. Yoenis Cespedes hit a go-ahead two-run single in the third inning that held up for Tommy Milone, and Crisp also singled and stole his 28th base to give the A's a much-needed boost only a couple of hours after...

Athletics-Rays Preview

Bartolo Colon was scheduled to pitch the opener of Oakland's key three-game series at Tampa Bay. Instead, the Athletics must move forward without the veteran right-hander. The A's will directly feel the effect of Colon's 50-game suspension for a positive testosterone test Thursday night against the Rays in a matchup of postseason contenders. Pushing for its first playoff...
