News and Notes

Thursday, June 18, 2009

  • After the report of Sammy Sosa testing positive for steroids in 2003, Congress is investigating about possible perjury charges.
  • Speaking of steroids, Manny Ramirez will play in some minor league games next week, before he is eligible to return to the Majors on July 3rd. Personally, I think that if you are suspended for 50 games for using steroids, there is no reason you should get the luxury of getting to come back and play in the minors a week before so that you could get ready. He should have to wait until July 3rd to go to the minors and get ready.
  • Roy Halladay was placed on the 15-day DL with a groin strain. That is a huge blow to the Blue Jays rotation, as Halladay is the American League leader in wins with 10 while racking up 88 strikeouts and posting a 2.53 ERA.
  • Pedro Martinez thinks that he will pitching in the Majors soon. According to Martinez, the Cubs and Rays are interested.
  • Raul Ibanez is being placed on the 15-day DL with a strained groin. Ibanez is tied for second in home runs and fourth in RBIs, so he'll be missed in the Phillies lineup.
  • Since it has been pouring here for the past couple of hours, I would be surprised if there is a game today. If there is, we'll be back with the lineups and in-game updates tonight.
