Five MLB teams in running for services of Cuban Alexander Guerrero

(By OCAL, courtesy

There are reports on the radio and in other media reports that Cuban infielder Alexander Guerrero has interest in him from five Major League Baseball teams.

The teams are the Dodgers, Twins, Red Sox and Braves.

The fifth team could be the Cincinnati Reds due to the fact that they signed closer Aroldis Chapman, another Cuban defector. Guerrero is likely to sign where he is comfortable.

The 26-year-old is said to be after a five-to-seven-year deal for his services.

Guerrero defected earlier this year and currently is working out in the Dominican Republic.

In order for him to gain entrance to the United States, Guerrero will have to be unblocked by the Office of Foreign Assests Control and then he can sign with any MLB team.

COLUMBUS CITY LEAGUE FOOTBALL: Whetstone demolishes Africentric, 84-26



The Africentric Nubians are known for their exploits on the basketball court during the winter months.

But the football team, even with some of the basketball players a part of it, is not as good.

The Nubians were 2-8 last year and they’re 0-2 so far in 2012 after suffering an embarrassing 84-26 home loss on Friday.

Whetstone was the team that handled Africentric.

The Braves led 20-14 at the end of the first quarter and 50-26 at halftime.

Ramroth Finnegan passed for five touchdowns and 423 yards for the Braves.

Africentric’s Trevon Saunders, who is listed by head coach Eugene Barrett as an Athlete, caught six balls for 185 yards and three touchdowns.

Saunders’ teammate, sophomore quarterback Trevon Potts passed for 274 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions.


As expected, Indians release veteran Derek Lowe


Ten days ago, the Cleveland Indians designated veteran right-hander Derek Lowe for assignment. That meant the team had ten days to trade, or release him.  Today, Friday August 10 was the deadline.

The verdict is Cleveland has released Lowe.

There are reports on Twitter that Lowe will start or relieve and would like to go back to the National League.

The 39-year-old Lowe,  posted a 5.52 ERA with 3.1 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9 in 119 innings with Cleveland this year. He has a 15 million dollar salary, but the Braves and Indians are responsible for all but the pro-rated MLB minimum at this point. So any team can sign him and only have to pay the minimum salary.

Mesoraco’s grand slam gives Reds 4-game sweep of Braves, 6-3; win streak at 6


Devin Mesoraco in the foreground, is progressing nicely as a rookie catcher (

Before their game with Atlanta on Thursday night, the Cincinnati Reds honored Braves third baseman Chipper Jones, presenting him with one of the bases as a memento of his last trip ever into Cincinnati. Jones is planning on retiring after the 2012 season. He received a standing ovation from the crowd of 23,312 after highlights of his career were show on the Great American Ball Park scoreboard.

Up until the bottom of the sixth inning, it looked as if the injury-riddled Braves would limped out of town with at least one win in the four-game set. They were leading 2-1 and Randall Delgado (2-5) was holding the Reds offense at bay.

The tide then changed as Delgado had control problems and the Reds loaded the bases with one out. Enter the game for the Braves is reliever Kris Medlen to face rookie Devin Mesoraco.

Mesoraco, the Reds #2 catcher hit his first career grand slam leading the new National League Central Division leaders to a 6-3 win and a four-game sweep of Atlanta.

It was the first home run for Mesoraco since April 27. He pulled a 2-0 Medlen pitch towering to left-field that stayed inside the foul pole for his fourth major league round-tripper and the Reds’ third grand slam homer of the year.

Cincinnati completed their first four-game sweep of the Braves in Cincinnati since 1980 at old Riverfront Stadium.

The Reds had not hit a very many homers before the series, but the teams both reached the seats with regularity. The Braves and Reds combined for 16 homers, 13 solo shots which accounted for 21 of the 24 runs in the series.

Braves losing pitcher Delgado, gave up, four runs, seven hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings. He has not won a game since April 17, going 0-5 with two no-decisions.

The Braves are mired in their second four-game losing streak of the season. The Braves had to play the series without their best two hitters in Jones, who made one pinch-hit appearance due to a bruised left calf muscle. Catcher Brian McCann could not play the final three games due to an illness.

Homer Bailey (3-3) was the winning pitcher for the Reds, allowing four hits and two runs and has won back-to-back games for the first time this season beating the Yankees and now the Braves.

Logan Ondrusek picked up his second save of the season.
