I don’t really play fantasy baseball any longer, but when I did, at various times over the last decade, I’d inevitably end up with Mark DeRosa on my team. Remember him? DeRosa was never a star, and he was rarely even a starter, getting more than 500 plate appearances in a season just four times in a career that spanned from 1998-2013. Those four years were 2006-2009, and that’s...
Despite his excellence on the field over the last decade and a half, one wouldn’t exactly call Tom Brady the most athletic quarterback.
But with the help of his trainer, Alex Guerrero, the New England Patriots quarterback has been able to extend his career after suffering a devastating ACL injury in 2008 through hard training regimens that have made him faster and a...
What happened in 2014: Tore up Triple-A pitching around being assaulted by a teammate. Yes, really.
“Welcome to America, kid. You’ll need to acclimate to a brand new country, unlike anything you knew in Cuba. You’ll need to get back up to baseball speed after missing all of 2013...
Two weeks ago, I wrote a post titled “Alex Guerrero Is Right Where He Should Be,” intended to refute those who insisted that Guerrero should have been added to the team rather than Darwin Barney in the wake of Hanley Ramirez‘ injury, simply because he had a great Triple-A stat line. When Juan Uribe hurt himself shortly after, the calls only intensified.
My case against it,...
So you might be wondering, who is Alex Guerrero? Well he is Tom Brady's body coach, and he also runs the TB12 Sports Therapy Center in Patriots Place. He has helped Brady and Amendola overcome leg injuries, and even Sydney Crosby overcome a neck injury. Now Amendola has been working with him in the offseason and he hopes to stay healthy the entire year according to the Providence...
While we’re easily frustrated by the Dodgers’ inconsistent offense, they actually can score some runs, even while missing Yasiel Puig and Hanley Ramirez.
The Dodgers are 10th in the majors in runs scored — no small feat. They also have the sixth-best walk rate in the league (9.5 percent). While there needs to be more consistency, they don’t need a big boost on offense.
It’s all fun and games until a teammate goes all Mike Tyson on another teammate.
Los Angeles Dodgers prospect Alex Guerrero was involved in a dugout altercation with Triple-A teammate Miguel Olivo during their game Tuesday with the Albuquerque Isotopes that escalated rapidly and resulted in Guerrero losing part of his ear.
The two teammates exchanged blows during the eighth inning...
Dodgers prospect Alex Guerrero has been on fire lately with the bat, but it sounds like that’s not the only thing that’s been on fire for him. According to FOX MLB reporter Jon Paul Morosi, Guerrero’s agent Scott Boras said Guerrero needed plastic surgery on his ear after having part of it “displaced” from a […]
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Alex Guerrero isn't just learning a new position. He's learning a new culture.
Both will take time, especially for someone making a transition that requires patience and repetition. But Guerrero, the Dodgers' presumed second baseman, is clearly in a rush.
He hasn't been in the U.S. for more than two months, yet he's already pronouncing himself ready to make a position...
