Taking a Look at the Pirates’ Bullpen Depth

Jason Grilli left tonight’s game with right forearm discomfort. He will be re-evaluated tomorrow, at which point we will hopefully learn more about his situation and whether he will miss any time. Forearm discomfort and a pitcher walking off the mound and leaving the game after throwing a pitch usually don’t result in just a few days off. It’s very possible the Pirates will need a replacement on the roster for Grilli...

Ryan Braun Suspended For the Rest of the Season

Milwaukee Brewers hitter Ryan Braun has been suspended for the rest of the season due to his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal. There won’t be any appeal process, since this appears to be a settlement between Braun and MLB.

Hey, Bud Selig: Time to Let MLB Players in the Olympics

Every sports commissioner wants to grow his game beyond the United States, and Major League Baseball’s Bud Selig is no different. “That’s my great goal is to take the game international,” Selig said Tuesday in New York. Of course. Those in charge of America’s pastime see opportunities outside the North America and Caribbean countries where the sport is already widely played. Each league wants to market to...
