Matt Garza turns into googly-eyed madman after giving up home run (GIF)

Matt Garza had otherwise pitched a great game heading into the sixth inning in the Milwaukee Brewers’ game against the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday. He had only surrendered one run on a solo shot by Jhonny Peralta in the second inning. But things unraveled a bit in the sixth when Jon Jay cleared the […] The post Matt Garza turns into googly-eyed madman after giving up home run...

Sox Led Battle For New Post-Season PED Rules

You might call it the Jhonny Peralta Rule. Major League Baseball's new Joint Drug Agreement (perhaps the poorest choice of words possible for a drug policy) now bans offenders from participating in the post-season of the year they violated the rules. Seems simple. But last year, 2013 season offender Peralta was allowed to play in October and hit .286 against Boston in the ALCS...

Jhonny Peralta: Fantasy Baseball Draft Sleeper

Who is Jhonny Peralta? After signing a controversial four year $53 million contract in the offseason, it seems counterintuitive that Cardinal shortstop Jhonny Peralta should fit in the 2014 fantasy sleeper category, but based on his rank and average pick in fantasy drafts, Peralta is potentially the most undervalued Cardinal. It is unclear where Peralta will hit [...]

MLB, MLBPA announce new PED penalties

A lot of people weren’t happy when Jhonny Peralta was allowed to return from his 50-game Biogenesis suspension to play in the postseason. Peralta served his time, then proceeded to hit .333/.353/.545 in the postseason and cash in on the free agent market with a four-year contract. Under new penalties announced by MLB and the MLBPA today, that will no longer be possible. Call it...

Peralta puts on a show against his former club

LAKELAND, Fla. -- Judging from the nice ovation Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta received before his first at-bat against his old team Monday afternoon, Tigers fans are going to miss him. Based on what he did after the applause, they're going to miss him even more. On the first pitch he saw, Peralta smacked a no-doubt-about-it home run over the left-field fence. Second at-bat...

Peralta homers twice against Tigers

LAKELAND, Fla. -- With two swings of the bat, St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta hit more home runs than his former team, the Detroit Tigers, have had in seven Grapefruit League games. It was quite a Joker Marchant homecoming for Peralta. The Tigers won, 8-5, on Monday but he stole the show by hitting his first two homers of the spring off the team he'd twice made the...

Jhonny Peralta faces a lot of pressure as St. Louis Cardinals starting shortstop

The St. Louis Cardinals solidified their largest trouble spot from the 2013 season Nov. 24 when they signed veteran free-agent shortstop Jhonny Peralta to a four-year, $53-million contract.  Peralta will also probably face pressure unlike any he has experienced in his 11-year career. By giving Peralta the largest contract of their offseason, the Cardinals in effect told Peralta...

Detroit Tigers move into the post Jhonny era

As everyone already knew would be the case, Detroit Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta has been suspended by MLB for 50 games for PED violations. Initially, Peralta said reports of his involvement were not true and that anyone saying otherwise was “lying”. Well, as usual, the joke was on us. GM Dave Dombrowski saw the writing on the wall and acquired slick fielding shortstop Jose...
