Tommy John surgery is becoming as common as the tonsillectomy.

I used to think this bit was just funny. Now..?

Cabrera suffers season-ending injury, Tigers lose to Twins

The Detroit Tigers lost much more than a game on Tuesday night.

Miguel Cabrera ruptured his left biceps tendon in the third inning of a 6-4 loss to the Minnesota Twins and will have season-ending surgery later this week.

"This is obviously a very sad day for Miggy and for the entire ballclub," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "It is obviously a huge blow to the team, both on and off the field, but we will have to find a way to overcome it."

I was at the game, and it was not pretty. Just about the last thing this team needed this season.

If you've ever had anything to do with Little League Baseball, this will get a chuckle....

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Giants closer Strickland mad at a bad performance and being pulled out of the game takes on a wall in the clubhouse, wall wins, broken hand, out 6-8 weeks.

Just my opinion, but I don't think cases like this should be a full pay, preferably zero, but 50% would be reasonable.

Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna suspended 75 games

Toronto Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna was suspended without pay for 75 games on Friday for violating Major League Baseball's domestic violence policy, the league announced.

Osuna, 23, has agreed not to appeal the suspension, which is retroactive to May 8 and extends through Aug. 4. He will wind up missing 89 days, which would cost him about $2.54 million of his $5.3 million salary.

Osuna was arrested by Toronto police and charged with assaulting a woman on May 8 and then placed on administrative leave. The league has been investigating the charges since.
