Girardi Out, Fredi Gonzalez In with Marlins PDF Print E-mail
MLB News
Written by Maury Brown   
Sunday, 01 October 2006 11:29

Girardi It appears Joe Girardi's time with the Marlins is done after only one season. Sources inform me that Girardi is out in Florida and that Fredi Gonzalez, the third base coach for the Atlanta Braves, will take Girardi's place.

Gonzalez was the Marlins' third base coach from 1999 through 2001. Before joining the Marlins major league club, he managed in the minor leagues for nine years, earning league manager of the year honors from Baseball America three times: in 1993 when High Desert finished 82-52 in the regular season and won the Class-A California League championship; in 1994, when Brevard County went 78-61 in the Class-A Florida State League; and in 1997, when he guided Portland (ME) to a 79-63 record and first place in the AA Eastern League.

There are a number of clubs where Girardi might land. Girardi has been talked of as the NL Manager of the Year due to his ability to take a roster that was almost exclusively made up of rookies into a club that finished ahead of expectations. As little as two weeks ago, the Marlins were in the hunt for the NL Wild Card before slowing down at the end of the season, finishing 78-84 (.481). Girardi has been mentioned for the manager's position with the Cubs and Nationals, to name two.

 
Grimsley implicates Clemens, Pettitte, Tejada , others PDF Print E-mail

ClemensRoger Clemens, Andy Pettitte, Miguel Tejada, Brian Roberts and Jay Gibbons were the names of players implicated by Jason Grimsley as using performance enhancing drugs, and were blacked out in a redacted version of an affidavit filed in federal court. The names of the players had been removed from the search warrant affidavit filed in Phoenix on May 31 during the investigation into Grimsley. Grimsley, who is now retired, was questioned after an illegal shipment of HGH was shipped to his Scottsdale home and tracked there by federal agents.

The identity of the 5 player names has long been a source of speculation. As the LA Times reports:

A source with authorized access to an unredacted affidavit allowed The Times to see it briefly and read aloud some of what had been blacked out of the public copies. A second source and confidant of Grimsley had previously disclosed player identities and provided additional details about the affidavit. The sources cooperated only on condition of anonymity.

According to the affidavit, Grimsley told investigators that Clemens "used athletic performance-enhancing drugs." He also allegedly said Tejada used anabolic steroids.

The affidavit also alleges that Grimsley told federal agents that former Orioles teammates Tejada, Brian Roberts and Jay Gibbons "took anabolic steroids." Roberts was the American League's all-star second baseman in 2005 when Grimsley was an Oriole.

There was no comment by any of the players alleged in the affidavit. MLB spokesman Rich Levin said of the affidavit, that MLB officials had "no information [about] how it was obtained or its accuracy."

It's Official: Robinson Not Returning in '07 PDF Print E-mail

Frank RobinsonFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Saturday, September 30, 2006

NATIONALS MANAGER FRANK ROBINSON WILL NOT RETURN IN 2007

The Washington Nationals today announced that manager Frank Robinson will not return for the 2007 season. Robinson’s final game as Nationals manager will come in Sunday’s season finale vs. New York (NL). Nationals Vice President and General Manager Jim Bowden made the announcement.

Robinson’s tenure as Nationals/Expos manager ends after five seasons, during which he compiled a 385-423 record. His stay as franchise manager included a pair of winning seasons (2002 and 2003) and the memorable 2005 campaign, during which the Nationals finished 81-81 (.500) and remained in the pennant race until the season’s final 10 days in their inaugural season in the nation’s capital. With two games remaining, the 2006 Nationals are 71-89 and reside in fifth place in the NL East in Robinson’s final season as manager.

Robinson, who became baseball’s first African-American manager on October 4, 1974 when he assumed Cleveland ’s helm, is 1065–1174 (.476) in 16 seasons as a big league manager. He currently ranks 46th on the all-time win list for managers. With a 10-4 win at Philadelphia on April 20, 2006, Robinson became the 53rd manager in big league history to reach the 1000-win plateau.

In addition to Washington (2005-06), Montreal (2002-04) and Cleveland (1975-77), Robinson also managed in San Francisco (1981-84) and Baltimore (1988-91). He was named American League Manager of the Year in 1989 after leading the Orioles to a 32.5-game improvement compared to the previous season.

Robinson was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982 after batting .294 with 586 home runs and 1812 RBI during a 21-year playing career with Cincinnati , Baltimore , Los Angeles (NL), California and Cleveland . One of 37 first-ballot Hall-of-Famers, Robinson currently ranks sixth on baseball’s all-time home runs list.

During his playing career, Robinson claimed two World Championship Rings (1966 and 1970), appeared in five World Series (1961 with Cincinnati and 1966, ‘69-71 with Baltimore ), and played in three other championship series. His jersey No. 20 has been officially retired by both Baltimore (1972) and Cincinnati (1998).

He remains the only player in baseball annals to win the Most Valuable Player Award in both leagues (NL MVP playing for Cincinnati in 1961, AL MVP playing for Baltimore in 1966). He earned his final MVP citation in 1966 after hitting .316 with 49 home runs and 122 RBI and claiming the prestigious Triple Crown. His 1961 MVP campaign (.323, 37 home runs, 124 RBI) resulted in Cincinnati ’s first NL flag in 21 years. Robinson burst on the scene with the Reds and claimed the NL Rookie of the Year by hitting .290 with 38 home runs and 83 RBI in 1956, his initial big league campaign. On August 20, 1970, he hit grand slams in consecutive at-bats at RFK Stadium off Washington’s Joe Coleman and Joe Grzenda.

Robinson was a 12-time All-Star (six with each league) who played in 11 Mid-Summer Classics. He was named MVP of the 1971 All-Star Game in Detroit thanks to a game-winning three-run homer in the third inning off Dock Ellis.

In more than 50 seasons in the game, Robinson has served baseball in nearly every conceivable position: player, player/manager, manager, coach, Team USA manager, front-office executive and administrator. In ‘02, Robinson was the recipient of Baseball America’s inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award, in recognition of his career as a player, manager and executive.

Lasorda in 2006 Post-Season ad campaign2006 MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL POSTSEASON AD CAMPAIGN TO STAR TOMMY LASORDA

One of Baseball’s Most Beloved Personalities is the Ambassador for October Baseball Lasorda Leads Fans Nationwide“To The TV!”

Tommy Lasorda, a legendary manager and one of baseball’s most charismatic personalities, will be the star of the 2006 Major League Baseball postseason advertising campaign that aims to ignite fans’ passion for the playoffs. The wry new campaign, which features three different television commercials, reminds fans that they can’t miss a moment of October baseball. The television spots, which debut on Friday, September 29, will run throughout the duration of the postseason and will be supplemented by print, radio, internet and mobile messaging.

Lasorda, who has given up his traditional cleats and cap for a more sophisticated October look, appears dapper throughout the campaign dressed in black tie. The three television spots each open with Lasorda stepping into extreme fan situations that
capture the “wanting to run and hide” feeling that every fan has experienced at one point or another. With perfectly delivered dry wit, Lasorda shares a “tough love” message with fans; like one who has climbed into a tree to hide once his team was eliminated from postseason play. In another spot he declares: “Real fans don’t hide in October. They celebrate it!”

Frank RobinsonFrank Robinson of the Washington Nationals met yesterday with Stan Kasten and Jim Bowden in separate meetings about his future as manager of the Nats. When he addressed the media afterwards, there were tears in his eyes and all but said that his run as manager with the organization was at an end. "Let me say this: I had my say," Robinson said. "We sat down, each one, and I had my discussions with them. And I'm very comfortable with what ... I wanted to say about the situation here and my situation. Other than that, I just don't want to go into depth on anything said behind closed doors at this time."

Neither Kasten or Bowden would comment about the meeting. As reported, A reporter told Robinson he looked sad.

"'Cause it's time to go," Robinson said. "Just got a bad call from the umpires, and they didn't want to reverse it. No, only kidding."

No annoluncement has been made as to whether Robinson will be offered a front office position.

Testing for Greenies Alters Player's Lifestyles PDF Print E-mail

AmphetaminesTesting for amphetamines keeps players from going out late after a game or has them drinking more coffee. That was the comment made by Mets pitcher Tom Glavine about how the new drug testing policy has impacted player activities. "I think it's changed guys' behavior, no question about it," Glavine said. "Guys are trying to find other ways to compensate for that, whether it's getting more sleep or drinking more coffee." More time on the pillows means less time in bars and clubs.

Unlike a positive test for performance enhancing drugs (PEDs), MLB does not announce to the public when a player has tested positive for amphetamines for the first time. However, since the new testing policy has been in place, no player has tested positive twice, which would result in a 25 game suspension. On a related topic, no MLB player has yet to test positive for PEDs this season.
