My favorite Manny moment.

Can you believe Youtube doesn’t have a video of Manny cutting off Johnny Damon’s throw from the OF?  This picture doesn’t really do it justice.  Sorry just had to throw another Manny tidbit in there so I can tag him again.  Now onto the NON-disgraced baseball players….

Injury News :

Cardinals OF Matt Holliday is supposed to start on Sunday. 

For the MASH unit leading the AL East, the Orioles…JJ Hardy and Brian Roberts both returned on Saturday.  Roberts went 0-4 in Game 1 of the doubleheader.  Hardy left the second game with a strained oblique.  Expect a DL stint.  Starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie was hoping to return and start on Sunday, but that outing has been pushed back to Tuesday.  Corporal Klinger is still in drag.

Marlins OF Mike Stanton returned to the starting lineup Saturday, but SS Hanley Ramirez missed the game.  No word on his return.  Keep in mind the Marlins have an off day Monday, so he may sit tomorrow to get a full 3 days of rest in.  Stanton meanwhile went 1-3 with an RBI 2B, 2 runs, a walk and 2 Ks.

For any of you who own Pirates starting pitchers, hopefully there aren’t that many of you….Ross Ohlendorf was placed on the 15 day DL today.

I would have him in a Rays jersey, but it only lasted 5 games

The big news on Friday was that 12 time All Star Manny Ramirez retired.  Word is that he failed a drug test in Spring Training.  Since that was his second offense he was looking at a 100 game suspension.  Manny played for the Indians, Red Sox, Dodgers, and Rays and was a .312 career hitter with 555 HRs and 1831 RBIs.  He started off this season for the Rays in a 1-17 slump before being benched.

So Dunn, you were under Oveur and over Unger?

Dunn is over Unger? Anyway….Adam Dunn had an appendectomy and is going to miss at least 5 games. Strange that Matt Holliday had the same injury last week. I wonder if they had the steak or the fish? Oh I remember he had the lasagna!

If I could be serious for a minute, here’s some more injury news and a quick listing of who’s hot/who’s not :


Hey it is 4/4 today. Paying homage to The Man...just don't let him near the Queen!!

So I’ve been telling you all along not to panic…it’s only the first week of the season. Hitters are very streaky. What about pitchers you ask? I wouldn’t overreact over pitching debuts either. But what you can do is target the owners that do.  Look for someone in your league with a trigger finger like Raylan Givens and make your move.  Here’s some guys to target…
