MOISES ALOU RUMORS & GOSSIP

Today in 1857, The Only Nolan Was Born

Baseball has always had its share of eccentrics. Mark Fidrych talked to the ball. Moises Alou urinated on his hands to get a better grip on his bat. Then there was Turk Wendell, about whom the Chicago Tribune wrote: Consider this a partial list: He doesn’t wear socks on the field. He waves at the center-fielder before each inning. He brushes his teeth between innings. He makes...

Iconic Boston Bullpen Cop Celebrates Red Sox World Series Win (Gif)

Yesterday Was the Ten Year Anniversary of Steve Bartman

It’s known as the “Bartman Game.” Ten years ago, on Oct. 14, 2003, the Chicago Cubs had their best opportunity to reach the World Series for the first time since 1945. Leading the Florida Marlins three games to two in the National League Championship Series and owning a 3-0 lead in the eighth inning of Game 6, it all came apart. Starter Mark Prior was cruising until that fateful...

It's Déjà Vu for Moises Alou

It's been close to ten years since Steve Bartman reached out and fouled up (get it) Chicago Cubs outfielder Moises Alou's chances at making potentially a game saving grab. And Monday night, it was déjà vu all over again. Now serving as the general manager for the Domican Republic's team during the World Baseball Classic, Alou was on hand to watch current...

Moises Sierra’s great catch evokes memories of Bartman for Moises Alou (vid)

During Monday’s tilt between the Dominican Republic and the Netherlands in a World Baseball Classic match-up at AT&T Park, Dominican left fielder Moises Sierra made an incredible catch of a foul ball off the bat of Andruw Jones in the top of the first inning, diving into the stands to snag a fly ball…right out of the waiting mitt of a fan eagerly awaiting for his prized souvenir...

Mets Baseball Card of the Day: Moises Alou (Topps 2007)

The big offseason acquisition for the Mets in 2007 was Moises Alou. Topps put their Alou card out early, before he even played a game as a Met. How’d they do it? Photoshop. This was one of the few Topps Photoshop jobs that viewers could eventually tell that the jersey was a digital fake. We’ll look at another one later. Want to see your card featured? Click here.

This Date in Pirates History: August 8

Today we have five former Pittsburgh Pirates players born on this date, including two pitchers for the 1987 team, as well another two pitchers who hold dubious team records. There are also two transactions of note, one involving a Hall of Fame pitcher. In his Jolly Roger Rewind, John Fredland covers a game from the 1995 season, in which the Pirates batters tie two team records for...

Magglio Ordonez and Moises Alou

Magglio Ordonez officially retired on Sunday and the Detroit Tigers threw a little party for him before the game. The celebration was later credited by Jim Leyland as part of Justin Verlander's problems against the Yankees in the game that was played after the ceremonies were over. Those two facts were probably fitting as they tied the career of Ordonez in a bow. Magglio Ordonez...

On this date in Giants history — Dec. 27

2004: After the Cubs decline Moises Alou (.293, 39 HR, 106 RBI) a contract option, the Giants sign the free agent outfielder to a one-year deal with an option for a second year.
