Donald Fehr to Step Down

Monday, June 22, 2009

After 25 years as MLBPA executive director, Donald Fehr is stepping down from his position. Fehr will most be remembered as Bud Selig's right hand man during the whole steroid scandal. Both him and Selig are responsible for baseball's drug problem as they knew it was happening but they decided to both turn the other way. MLBPA general counsel Mike Weiner wll replace him. (I'll be a little immature for a sec, but with his last name, steroids and urine test jokes are sure to ensue)


  • Pete Abe from the LoHud blog has a few suggestions on how the Yankees can improve without making a trade.

  • Joe Girardi is protesting yesterdays game on the lineup snafu the Marlins made. Girardi showed that the Marlins had two players put into the leadoff spot because of the double-switch. Girardi wanted Nunez, the pitcher, to be taken out, but it was Coughlan, the leftfielder who was removed. If the protest is upheld, they will play the game from that point, which was the top of the 8th, 6-3 Marlins, and Derek Jeter up at the plate.

  • The book "Moneyball" was going to be made into a movie but production has been benched and it does not look liek the movie will be made. It was going to star Brad Pitt and directed by Steven Soderbergh.
  • St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa earned his 2,500th career win as a manager. He is only the third manager in baseball history to accomplish this feat.
  • The Boston Red Sox have placed Daisuke Matsuzaka on the disabled list. It is his second stint on the DL this season.
  • Manny Ramirez is two weeks away from returning to the Dodgers after his 50-game suspension for using a banned substance. It is reported that he is finding his rhythm in is latest batting practice workouts.
