Five MLB teams in running for services of Cuban Alexander Guerrero

(By OCAL, courtesy Clker.com)

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.

Tino Martinez resigns as Miami Marlins hitting coach amid verbal abuse reports

Former Major League Baseball player Tino Martinez was known to be one who thrived on pressure.

During his career with Seattle, the Yankees twice, St. Louis and Tampa Bay, who would always come up with clutch hits.

His career stats showed he had a nice career hitting .271 with 339 homers and 1,271 RBI’s.

Martinez was named the hitting coach for the Miami Marlins for the 2013 season, replacing Eduardo Perez.

Apparently as the hitting coach of the Marlins, Martinez could not handle the pressure of working with and helping young players on a losing team.

Martinez resigned his position just hours after complaints by players about him verbally abusing them became public.

The allegations included him physically abusing Derek Dietrich several months before the resignation. Martinez’s behavior in the clubhouse was reported to also include verbal attacks towards other Marlins’ players, Justin Ruggiano and Chris Valaika and minor leaguer Matt Downs.

Martinez was in his first season as an MLB coach.

Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis has his name in the Major League Baseball record books.

The 27-year-old Texan belted his MLB-leading 37th home run on Sunday as Baltimore cruised by the Toronto Blue Jays 7-4.

The 37th homer tied an American League record at the All-Star break.

With his recent power surge of homering in his fourth straight games, Davis equaled Reggie Jackson’s 1969 American League record for home runs before the All-Star break. The MLB overall record is 39 by Barry Bonds in 2001.

Davis has 93 RBI’s at the break, which is second-most in MLB behind Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera. He and Cabrera are the only players in major league history to have 30 home runs and 90 RBI’s at the All-Star break.

The left-handed hitting Davis has reached career highs in both homers and RBI’s and still has 66 games left to add to his totals.

The Philadelphia Phillies are one Major League Baseball team that needs a spark in their starting pitching rotation.

With Roy Hallday being out after surgery for bone spurs and fraying of his labrum, and rotator cuff and Cole Hamels struggling, the Phillies picked up a veteran hurler.

The team has signed three-time All-Star pitcher Carlos Zambrano to a minor-league contract. He’ll report to Clearwater, Florida immediately to get into game shape.

Zambrano can be very volatile towards teammates, managers and umpires but one thing that sticks out about him, he is a winner with 132 victories and a no-hitter in 12 MLB seasons.

Commissioner Goodell says NFL playoffs won’t expand in 2013

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said on Monday that the league will not be adding any teams to the playoffs for the 2013 season.

There had been talk and speculation that the NFL would expand past the current 12-team format.

The other topic at the owners meetings in Phoenix yesterday was that there is a scheduling conflict with the Baltimore Ravens opening at home due to the Baltimore Orioles game on the same date.

The Ravens play at M&T Bank Stadium and the Orioles at Camden Yards, just across the streek and the two stadiums share the same parking lots.

Traditionally, the NFL season opens with the Super Bowl winners playing host on the Thursday night after Labor Day.

The Ravens will not have that opportunity unless the Orioles move their night game on September 5 to the afternoon.

The NFL will not have the option of using September 4 because it is the first night of the Jewish holiday, Rosh Hashanah.

Goodell says he has twice talked to MLB commissioner Bud Selig to help get a resolution with the Orioles, but has not heard anything back.

The NFL has moved opening nights before. Last year, the opener was moved to Wednesday avoiding a conflict with President Barack Obama’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention.
