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.

Much-traveled pitching ace Zack Greinke has joined a very select group of pitchers who have struck out at least 200 batters for two or more teams in one season.

The right-handed ace joined Randy Johnson, Earl Wilson, Gaylord Perry, Bert Blyleven, Rick Sutcliffe, David Cone, Mark Langston and Frank Viola from many years ago.

Blyleven did it two times in 1976 with the Twins and Rangers totaling 219 K’s and in 1985 with the Indians and Twins totaling 206.

Most recent pitchers prior to 2012 joining the select group includes C.C. Sabathia in 2008 with 251 strikeouts with the Indians and Brewers, 2010 Dan Haren with Arizona and the Angels, 216 K’s.

In becoming the 11th pitcher to join the group, Greinke struckout 200 batters for the Brewers and Angels.

AL DIVISION SERIES: Target Field or not, Twins simply can’t beat New York

When the American League playoff series field was finally set, everybody said the Twins would use their new home, Target Field to its advantage against the Yankees.

Two games in and two losses and the Twins may not get back to Target Field for Game 5.

Andy Pettitte and the Bronx Bombers stumbled through September and made the playoffs as the AL wild card champion. Most observers said they’re old and would go out the first round.

Right now, the Yankees are sitting in the drivers seat with a 2-0 lead over Minnesota.

New York has brushed aside the Twins home-field advantage as Pettitte turned in a brilliant postseason performance on the mound with seven innings and Lance Berkman had two big hits in the 5-2 win.

A former Houston Astros star, Berkman belted the go-ahead homer in the fifth and the tie-breaking double in the seventh against Carl Pavano, sending Minnesota to its 11th straight postseason loss. Eight of those losses are to the Yankees, whom the Twins have been ahead of in every game.

Minnesota Twins 9 Cleveland Indians 3; Gomez has trouble getting third out

Jeanmar Gomez has pitched quite well for Cleveland in his few stints to the mound this year. But there have been times when he can’t get the third out of an inning.

It came back to haunt him Monday night at Target Field in Minneapolis.

The Twins beat the Indians 9-3 to reduce their magic number to three to clinch the American League Central Division title.

All of the Twins runs came with two out and eight were off Gomez.

Gomez could not get the big out. It started in the first inning and continued until Manny Acta took him out of the game.

The Indians did cut the lead down to 4-3 in the sixth inning, but could not get the big hit against winning pitcher Brian Duensing (10-2).

Cleveland needed Gomez to get the Twins out in the sixth, instead, he allowed four runs with two outs.
