Chronicle held in contempt in Bonds case PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Staff   
Friday, 20 October 2006 00:52

Game of ShadowsThe San Francisco Chronicle has agreed to be held in contempt of court, setting the stage for the publication to possibly pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines for refusing to assist a federal grand jury investigating who leaked information in the secret testimony of Barry Bonds and other athletes to reporters Lance Williams and Mark Fainaru-Wada, according to a court filing.

As reported:

Under the proposed deal between the newspaper and federal prosecutors, which must be approved by U.S. District Judge Jeffrey White, the Chronicle agreed to pay a fine of at least $1,000 per day, for up to 18 months. Both sides reserve the right to argue the amount of the fine.

The agreement is largely procedural, allowing the case to move before the appeals court.

According to the leaked testimony, Bonds told the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative grand jury that he did not knowingly use steroids and said he thought his trainer Greg Anderson supplied him with flaxseed oil and arthritic balm.

Williams and Fainaru-Wada also published the book Game of Shadows based in large part on the testimony from the source or sources.

Mariners name John McLaren as new bench coach PDF Print E-mail
Written by Press Release   
Thursday, 19 October 2006 17:46

John McLarenPEORIA, AZ -- Seattle Mariners Manager Mike Hargrove announced today from the club’s organizational meetings that the Mariners have named John McLaren as the Major League bench coach.

With the addition of McLaren, Hargrove’s 2007 staff is complete. McLaren will join pitching coach Rafael Chaves, third base coach Carlos Garcia, first base coach Mike Goff, hitting coach Jeff Pentland and bullpen coach Jim Slaton, all of whom return from last year’s staff.

“I am very pleased to be able to add John to my coaching staff,” Hargrove said. “We had a very good interview here in Arizona, and I think he will work well with me, and with the rest of the staff. John is a knowledgeable, talented baseball guy. His substantial experience as a bench coach and his abilities as a catching instructor make him a great fit for us.

“He’s also been a great part of the Mariners, having spent a decade in Seattle in a variety of coaching roles. I think he’s a great addition to our coaching staff.”

McLaren, 55, will be in his 37th season in professional baseball, his 21st as a Major League coach and his 11th with Seattle in 2007. He previously served as  bullpen (1993-94), bench (1995, 1998-2002) and third base (1996-97) coach with Seattle.

“I consider Seattle my second home,” McLaren said. “The best times of my professional life were there and I always knew if I had a chance to get back to the Mariners and the great Seattle fans I couldn’t pass it up. I’m already excited for the start of spring training and for being a small part in helping Seattle get back on top in the AL West.”

Frito LayMAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL EXTENDS PEPSI PARTNERSHIP AND WELCOMES FRITO-LAY AS “OFFICIAL SNACK CHIP”

Agreements with Major League Baseball Properties and MLB Advanced Media Through 2010

Major League Baseball Properties (MLBP), Major League Baseball Advanced Media (MLBAM) and Pepsi have reached a five-year sponsorship renewal that secures the beverage company as the “Official Soft Drink of Major League Baseball” through 2010. In addition, MLB and Pepsi sister company Frito-Lay have reached an agreement to make Frito-Lay the “Official Snack Chip of Major League Baseball.” This new deal signifies Major League Baseball’s return into this valuable sponsor category, which also covers Frito-Lay pretzels, popcorn, peanuts, sunflower seeds, salsas, dips, and perennial baseball favorite Cracker Jack®. Frito-Lay was an official sponsor of Major League Baseball in 2002 and 2003. Pepsi and Frito-Lay are divisions of PepsiCo.

“Today’s announcement in large part reflects the great success and the tremendous potential of the relationship between PepsiCo and MLB,” said Tim Brosnan, Executive Vice President, Business, Major League Baseball. “We are very excited about welcoming back Frito-Lay into the MLB family, and believe the strong connection between snacks and entertainment enjoyment will give us a wide marketing landscape to explore together.”

“Our relationship with the MLB is a true collaboration that has been a big hit with our consumers and customers,” said Dawn Hudson, President and CEO of Pepsi-Cola North America and CEO of PepsiCo Foodservice. “We’ll use the depth of our portfolio and resources to offer baseball fans even more fun and exciting programs.”

“Frito-Lay is thrilled to take the field with Major League Baseball for the upcoming season and beyond,” said Al Carey, President and CEO, Frito-Lay North America. “Combining America’s favorite snacks with ‘America’s favorite pastime’ is a winning lineup for the League and our valued partners. It’s also a great chance for us to bring exciting MLB marketing programs to our customers.”

As part of the overall agreement, Pepsi will continue to make significant media commitments to national MLB television rightsholders and will extend its presenting sponsorship of “This Week In Baseball” (TWIB), which is produced by MLB Productions, the Emmy® Award-winning in-house television and video production division of Major League Baseball. The show airs on FOX preceding each Major League Baseball FOX Saturday Game of the Week. Since 2000, Pepsi has been the presenting sponsor of TWIB, the longest running sports anthology series currently in production.

Pepsi and Frito-Lay will share exclusive rights to the MLB All-Star Game retail balloting program in the U.S. and Canada. As a participating sponsor for MLB All-Star FanFest, Pepsi will also remain the title sponsor for one of the event’s major attractions, The Diamond.

Pepsi will extend its five-year title sponsorship of the “Pepsi Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run” national youth skills competition, which reached more than 575,000 boys and girls, ages 7 to 14, in 2006. The program includes more than 3,900 skills competitions nationwide and helps extend MLB’s commitment to reaching out to youth and engaging them with the sport.

AP-AOL Sports poll shows 32% baseball fans PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Staff   
Thursday, 19 October 2006 02:57

Major League BaseballAn AP-AOL Sports poll released Thursday shows that 32 percent -- or roughly 1/3 of Americans -- consider themselves to be fans of baseball. The AP-AOL Sports poll of 2,002 adults, including 774 baseball fans, was conducted by telephone Oct. 10-12 and Oct. 16-18 by Ipsos.

Results from the poll also found that among all Americans, 28 percent said salaries were the top problem in baseball, 21 percent said it was the high cost of attending games and 19 percent said it was players using steroids and performance-enhancing drugs. 27 percent of Americans in the same poll conducted in April of last year found that steroids were their top concern.

Other findings:

  • 48 percent of fans want the San Francisco star to fall short of Aaron's mark; 33 percent would like Bonds to break it and another 16 percent said they didn't care.
  • 58 percent of fans said they cared "a lot" whether players were using steroids and performance-enhancing drugs.
  • The Yankees are the most rooted for team at 14 percent, followed by the Braves (10%), and Red Sox (9%).
  • The Yankees were also the team that were rooted against the most at 40 percent, with the Red Sox a distant 2nd at 9%
  • 79 percent of fans felt the quality of umpiring was good or excellent. Only 19 percent rated it fair or poor.
  • 5 percent of fans said postseason games start at the right time, 19 percent said they were on too late. And while most fans, 73 percent, said they would stay up late to watch the World Series, only 38 percent of those with school-aged children said they'd let their children stay awake past their bedtimes.

Nats' List of Managerial Candidates Appears to Be Growing PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Staff   
Wednesday, 18 October 2006 18:48

NationalsWhile Joe Girardi continues to be a strong candidate for the managerial vacancy with the Washington Nationals, the club seems to be casting its net wider, not smaller.

The issue for the Nationals seems to be that they are targeting candidates that are still actively involved in the postseason.

As reported:

Girardi, according to sources, remains a strong candidate. But the list of potential managers on the three teams remaining in the playoffs -- Detroit, St. Louis and the New York Mets -- includes Mets coaches Manny Acta and Jerry Manuel as well as Cardinals third base coach Jose Oquendo.

Commissioner Bud Selig annually asks clubs not to generate news during the World Series, which begins Saturday, because he wants the attention of fans to be focused strictly on the games. The Nationals, though, could quietly interview candidates during the Series, continuing a process that began the day after the season ended on Oct. 1, when Frank Robinson managed the last game of his five-year tenure.

Speculation throughout baseball has been that Girardi has an offer in hand but is weighing whether to wait for a chance to manage the New York Yankees in 2008 -- after current manager Joe Torre's contract expires -- but sources with knowledge of the situation insist Girardi doesn't yet have an offer from Washington. One source said even if the Yankees' job were open, Girardi might consider himself a better fit with a rebuilding club such as Washington.

Written by Press Release   
Wednesday, 18 October 2006 16:40
RoyalsKANSAS CITY -- Kansas City Royals Senior Vice President-Baseball Operations/General Manager Dayton Moore announced today that the entire Major League coaching staff will have their contracts renewed for the 2007 season.

Manager Buddy Bell, who is under contract through next season, also announced that third base coach Luis Silverio and first base coach Brian Poldberg will switch positions next season, allowing Silverio to spend more time with the outfielders.

"I feel comfortable with Brian or Luis coaching third," Bell said. "But this will give Luis a little more freedom to work with the outfielders. This staff did an incredible job of working with our players," Bell said. "Considering what we went through in our first couple of months, they worked hard to help these players continue to develop and take their games to the next level. This is a good situation for the organization and the players."

The rest of Bell's staff includes bench coach Billy Doran, hitting coach Mike Barnett, pitching coach Bob McClure and bullpen coach Fred Kendall.

Selig not worried about Braves sale's delay PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Staff   
Tuesday, 17 October 2006 18:44

Atlanta BravesThe protracted process of finalizing Time Warner's sale of the Atlanta Braves to Colorado-based Liberty Media isn't worrying Commissioner Selig, saying that there is "steady progress" in completing the sale.

Asked at Game Five of the NLCS of the matter, Selig replied. "These deals often take a long time," Selig said. "This one appears to be making steady progress. And it really isn't causing any problem. The Braves are being very well run by [team president] Terry McGuirk, [general manager] John Schuerholz
and [manager] Bobby Cox.

"The fact that Time Warner does want to sell the club and we seem to be moving toward a resolution — of all the things I have to worry about today, that isn't one of them."

Selig: St. Louis has good chance to host '09 All-Star game PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Staff   
Tuesday, 17 October 2006 16:36

New BuschCommissioner Selig has said that St. Louis has a very good chance of hosting the 2009 All-Star game. Selig made the comments at Game Five of the NLCS at New Busch Stadium, which opened this year.

As reported:

"I'd say very, very good," Selig said. "I like their chances a lot."

The new Busch Stadium opened in April, across the street from the old Busch, which hosted the All-Star game in 1966.

The 2007 game is scheduled for July 10 in San Francisco and the 2008 event is likely to be played at New York's Yankee Stadium, which is slated to be in its final season.
