A-Rod
Alex Rodriguez could lose $63,312,219 if his suspension is upheld

The largest number of suspensions for players using performance-enhancing substances has now occurred as Major League Baseball announced that 13 players have been suspended for 50 games, with Alex Rodriguez being suspended for the remainder of the 2013 regular and postseason, as well as all of the 2014 season. Those players that accepted 50 game suspensions without pay are:

  • Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Antonio Bastardo;
  • San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera;
  • New York Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli;
  • Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz;
  • Padres pitcher Fautino De Los Santos, who is currently on the roster of the Double-A San Antonio Missions of the Texas League;
  • Houston Astros pitcher Sergio Escalona, who is currently of the roster of the Double-A Corpus Christi Hooks of the Texas League;
  • Yankees outfielder Fernando Martinez, who is currently on the roster of the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders of the International League;
  • Seattle Mariners catcher Jesus Montero, who is currently on the roster of the Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers of the Pacific Coast League;
  • Free agent pitcher Jordan Norberto;
  • Detroit Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta;
  • New York Mets outfielder Cesar Puello, who is currently on the roster of the Double-A Binghamton Mets of the Eastern League; and
  • Mets infielder/outfielder Jordany Valdespin, who is currently on the roster of the Triple-A Las Vegas 51s of the Pacific Coast League.

Norberto’s suspension will be effective immediately once he signs with another Major League organization.  All other suspensions are effective immediately.  None of the players will appeal their discipline.

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera, Oakland Athletics pitcher Bartolo Colon and Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal, all of whom already have served 50-game suspensions as a result of their violations of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program stemming from their connections to Biogenesis, will not receive additional discipline.

Major League Baseball’s investigation found no violations of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program by either Washington Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez or Baltimore Orioles infielder Danny Valencia.

In terms of Rodriguez, according to the league his discipline under the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program is based on his use and possession of numerous forms of prohibited performance-enhancing substances, including Testosterone and human Growth Hormone, over the course of multiple years.  Rodriguez's discipline under the Basic Agreement is for attempting to cover-up his violations of the Program by engaging in a course of conduct intended to obstruct and frustrate the Office of the Commissioner's investigation.  The suspension, which will become effective on Thursday, August 8th, will cover 211 Championship Season games and any 2013 Postseason games in which Rodriguez otherwise would have been eligible to play.

Under the terms of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program, Rodriguez’s suspension will be stayed until the completion of his appeal if Rodriguez files a grievance challenging his discipline.

The grievance could be heard by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz in approx. 45 days, but it is unclear the exact date due to scheduling. With all players except Rodriguez accepting the suspensions without grievance, it will make it smoother with just the Rodriguez case to contend with, but it’s still unclear how long that might be. Rodriguez is scheduled to be in the Yankees line-up tonight against the White Sox.

Commissioner Selig released the following statement:

“Major League Baseball has worked diligently with the Players Association for more than a decade to make our Joint Drug Program the best in all of professional sports.  I am proud of the comprehensive nature of our efforts – not only with regard to random testing, groundbreaking blood testing for human Growth Hormone and one of the most significant longitudinal profiling programs in the world, but also our investigative capabilities, which proved vital to the Biogenesis case.  Upon learning that players were linked to the use of performance-enhancing drugs, we vigorously pursued evidence that linked those individuals to violations of our Program.  We conducted a thorough, aggressive investigation guided by facts so that we could justly enforce our rules.

“Despite the challenges this situation has created during a great season on the field, we pursued this matter because it was not only the right thing to do, but the only thing to do.  For weeks, I have noted the many players throughout the game who have strongly voiced their support on this issue, and I thank them for it.  I appreciate the unwavering support of our owners and club personnel, who share my ardent desire to address this situation appropriately. I am also grateful to the Professional Baseball Athletic Trainers Society and our club physicians, who were instrumental in the banning of amphetamines and whose expertise remains invaluable to me.  As an institution, we have made unprecedented strides together.

“It is important to point out that 16,000 total urine and blood tests were conducted on players worldwide under MLB Drug Programs in 2012.  With the important additions of the hGH testing and longitudinal profiling this season, we are more confident than ever in the effectiveness of the testing program.  Those players who have violated the Program have created scrutiny for the vast majority of our players, who play the game the right way.

“This case resoundingly illustrates that the strength of our Program is not limited only to testing.  We continue to attack this issue on every front – from science and research, to education and awareness, to fact-finding and investigative skills.  Major League Baseball is proud of the enormous progress we have made, and we look forward to working with the players to make the penalties for violations of the Drug Program even more stringent and a stronger deterrent.

“As a social institution with enormous social responsibilities, Baseball must do everything it can to maintain integrity, fairness and a level playing field.  We are committed to working together with players to reiterate that performance-enhancing drugs will not be tolerated in our game.”

Major League Baseball Players Association Executive Director Michael Weiner issued the following statement regarding the Biogenesis suspensions, which show that there were deep concerns about how information was leaked to the media in the case, as well as the due process afforded Rodriguez

“The accepted suspensions announced today are consistent with the punishments set forth in the Joint Drug Agreement, and were arrived at only after hours of intense negotiations between the bargaining parties, the players and their representatives.

For the player appealing, Alex Rodriguez, we agree with his decision to fight his suspension. We believe that the Commissioner has not acted appropriately under the Basic Agreement. . Mr. Rodriguez knows that the Union, consistent with its history, will defend his rights vigorously.

The Union’s members have made it clear that they want a clean game. They support efforts to discipline players, and harshly, to help ensure an even playing field for all.  The players support the Union’s efforts to uphold the JDA while at the same time guaranteeing that players receive the due process rights and confidentiality protections granted under the agreement.

Lastly, l want to close by stating our profound disappointment in the way individuals granted access to private and privileged information felt compelled to share that information publicly.  The manner in which confidential information was so freely exchanged is not only a threat to the success and credibility of our jointly administered program; it calls into question the level of trust required to administer such a program.   It is our view that when the bargaining parties hold their annual review of the program, we must revisit the JDA’s confidentiality provisions and consider implementing stricter rules for any breach by any individual involved in the process.”

All told, the following from The Associated Press shows what players will lose in salary (and clubs retain) as part of the suspensions. None of the money that is held by the clubs in salary count against the Luxury Tax.

MLB, Twins Unveil 2014 All-Star Game Logo PDF Print E-mail

2014 MLB All-Star Game logo

Major League Baseball, the Minnesota Twins and local officials from the Twin Cities and the state of Minnesota today unveiled the official logo of the 2014 All-Star Game, which will be played at Target Field in Minneapolis on today.

Those in attendance for today’s unveiling at the Twins’ home ballpark before the Club’s evening game against the Kansas City Royals included MLB Executive Vice President for Business Tim Brosnan; Twins Owner and CEO Jim Pohlad; Twins President Dave St. Peter; Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak; St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman; Twins 2013 American League All-Stars Joe Mauer and Glen Perkins; Twins four-time All-Star Justin Morneau; former Twins All-Stars Tom Brunansky, Ron Coomer, Tony Oliva and Tim Laudner; Chair of the Hennepin County Board of Commissioners Mike Opat; and Vice Chair of the Minnesota Ballpark Authority Martin Sabo.

The official logo of the 2014 All-Star Game focuses on the iconic Ballpark structure enveloped in downtown Minneapolis. The Twins' core colors of navy and red are supplemented by tanand sky blue. Tan signifies the locally quarried limestone used throughout the Ballpark, and the sky blue symbolic of the clear Upper Midwest sky. The retaining keystone shape is inspired by the Twins' historic and beloved Minnie and Paul logo.

Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig said: “Major League Baseball joins the Twins franchise in anticipating a first-class week of events for the fans of Minnesota and their communities as a part of the 85th All-Star Game. We look forward to delivering a memorable experience and applauding our game’s very best at Target Field next July 15th.”

Twins Owner and CEO Jim Pohlad said: “The Twins are honored to host the 2014 All-Star Game Events. Even before opening Target Field in 2010, we dreamed of hosting this incredible event. With this logo unveiling, we’re one step closer to making this dream a reality.”

Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak said: “We’re excited for this incredible opportunity to showcase our great city. The City of Minneapolis is committed to making the 2014 All-Star Game a great experience for the many visitors to our region.”

Chair of the Hennepin County Board of Commissioners Mike Opat said: “Hosting the 2014 All-Star Game Events is exciting for the Twin Cities community. Not only will we collectively reap the incredible economic benefits of hosting this jewel event, the associated charitable contributions will also greatly benefit our community as a whole.”

St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman said: “The All-Star Game events will be great for the City of St. Paul. We look forward to welcoming the many visitors to our great city and showing them our brand of Midwest hospitality.”

The 2014 All-Star Game will be the third Midsummer Classic hosted by the Twins. Metropolitan Stadium was the venue of the 1965 event on July 13th, a 6-5 National League victory in which the National League squandered an early 5-0 lead before breaking a 5-5 tie with a seventh inning, go-ahead single by Ron Santo, scoring Mays. Home runs were hit by Twins icon Harmon Killebrew, Willie Mays, current MLB Executive Vice President for Baseball Operations Joe Torre, Willie Stargell and Dick McAuliffe. N.L. starter Juan Marichal earned Most Valuable Player honors with three scoreless innings, and Sandy Koufax was credited with the win. Overall, 18 Hall of Famers appeared in the 1965 Midsummer Classic, including such additional legends as Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks, Roberto Clemente, Don Drysdale, Bob Gibson, Al Kaline, Al Lopez, Mickey Mantle, Brooks Robinson, current MLB Executive Vice President for Baseball Development Frank Robinson, Billy Williams and Carl Yastrzemski.

The 1985 All-Star Game marked another National League win – its 25th in a span of 29 Midsummer Classics – with a 6-1 score at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. The Senior Circuit’s first two pitchers, starter and MVP LaMarr Hoyt and Nolan Ryan, covered six innings without yielding an earned run, and Dick Williams’ lineup scored in three of the first five innings to take a 4-1 lead. The ’85 Midsummer Classic featured 14 Hall of Famers: Bert Blyleven, Wade Boggs, George Brett, Gary Carter, Carlton Fisk, Rich Gossage, Tony Gwynn, Rickey Henderson, Paul Molitor, Eddie Murray, Jim Rice, Ryan, Ryne Sandberg and Ozzie Smith. The 1985 All-Star Game marked the debut of the Home Run Derby, with Dave Parker of the Cincinnati Reds winning the inaugural contest.

MLB Players Union Issues Strong Statement on Leaks in Biogenesis Case PDF Print E-mail
User Rating: / 74

Thursday, 11 July 2013 16:21
Michael Weiner

With suspensions being announced in the Biogenesis case expected shortly in Major League Baseball, the matter of how and when those occur have been under the microscope. With the drug agreement between the league and the MLB Players Association as part of the labor agreement in baseball, walking the line on the technical aspects around confidentiality has been touchy.

Yesterday it was reported that because Biogenesis and the players implicated in the PED scandal has already surfaced in the media, a provision in the drug agreement will allow MLB to announce the suspensions, even though appeals through the grievance process have not been completed.

Today the MLBPA went on the offensive around reports regarding how long suspensions might be for Ryan Braun and Alex Rodriguez (reports have said the league could look to get 100 games for each of them based upon lying to the league about prior PED use). Major League Baseball Players Association Executive Director Michael Weiner issued the following statement regarding the leaking of Biogenesis-related information to the media.  

“The leaking of confidential information to members of the media interferes with the thoroughness and credibility of the Biogenesis investigation.  These repeated leaks threaten to harm the integrity of the Joint Drug Agreement and call into question the required level of confidentiality needed to operate a successful prevention program.  The Players want a clean game and they demand a testing program that is not only the toughest in professional sports, but one that guarantees each player due process rights accompanied by strict confidentiality provisions.  As I stated last month, the Players Association remains in contact with the Commissioner’s Office regarding the investigation, and they continue to assure us that no decisions regarding discipline will be made until the investigation is complete.  It would be unfortunate if anyone prejudged the results of the investigation based on unsubstantiated leaks that are a clear violation of the JDA.”

Shortly after the statement was released, the union for the players quickly added clarification in which they said they had “no information about the source of the leaks” and that they “have no information that indicates MLB is the source.”

The statement by Michael Weiner was to “lament the fact that the leaks had occurred and to encourage the media and the public not to rush to judgment about any Player before MLB's investigation is completed and all of the Players' due process rights under the JDA are satisfied.”

In other words, indications are that the league will still move forward and announce the suspensions, but the duration of them will not occur until the due process through the appeals to arbitrator Fredric Horowitz is completed. With that it is possible that it could be months before players actually serving the suspensions, if they are upheld.

Provision in MLB Drug Agreement Will Allow Suspensions in Biogenesis Case to Happen Before Grievance Heard PDF Print E-mail

PEDs in baseballMajor League Baseball will announce the suspension of players allegedly involved in the Biogenesis PED scandal before the players have had their grievances heard on the matter based on a provision in the current joint drug agreement between the MLB Players Associiation and MLB. The story was first reported via T.J. Quinn of ESPN late Tues evening via Twitter, and confirmed today. While the suspensions for the likes of Alex Rodriguez, Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz and others that could total as many as 20 players could happen at any time, all indications are that it will happen shortly after the All-Star Game which takes place on this coming Tuesday, July 16th. From Weds. to Thurs. of next week there are no games played and it is possible that the league could use the break in play to make the announcement then. While suspensions will be announced, no suspension will be served until the grievance process is completed.

While confidentiality around suspensions is a key section of the latest joint drug agreement (see it here), the league is given the ability to announce the suspensions under the Appeals provision, Section 8 , D. Appeals of Discipline Issued Pursuant to Section 7.G.2. (see pg 31):

The Commissioner’s Office may publicly announce the discipline of a Player if the allegations relating to a Player’s violation of the Program previously had been made public through a source other than the Commissioner’s Office or a Club (or their representative employees or agents).

The Miami New Times first reported the Biogenesis PED story and since the New York Times and ESPN have done investigative reporting stories regarding Biogenesis, and the players allegedly named within it. The league has spoken with Tony Bosch, the head of Biogenesis, and is in the midst of interviewing the players allegedly involved. Ryan Braun has already been interviewed, and Rodriguez is slated to meet with the league on Friday.

The league can publicly identify the players involved but the suspensions would be held for those declared first-time offenders of the drug policy. It has been reported that the league may look to impose 100-game suspensions for Braun and Rodriguez based on prior incidents. Braun had his 50-game suspension for elevated levels of testosterone overturned based on chain of custody being broken under the prior drug agreement. The latest drug agreement would not have allowed the suspension to be overturned. In that, Braun never contested the positive test, rather the handling of his test sample. Rodriguez admitted in 2009 to using PEDs for a 3-year period beginning in 2001, but was never suspended for it as the drug policy was not yet in place. While neither player has been suspended prior, the league could look to suspend the two 100-games claiming the details out of the Biogenesis case constitutes a second offense and that lying as part of prior interviews with the league constitutes the first offense. In that, the former NL MVP and baseball’s highest-paid player could be named in the suspensions, as could Melky Cabrera, Bartolo Colon, and Yasmani Grandal as they have been suspended prior for positive PED tests.

The MLB Players Association is aware of the pending announcement but sees the league’s actions as potentially not meeting the intent and spirit of the provision within the drug agreement.

LIST OF PLAYERS INPLICATED IN THE BIOGENESIS SCANDAL

Ryan Braun (Brewers), Everth Cabrera (Padres), Melky Cabrera (Blue Jays), Francisco Cervelli (Yankees), Bartolo Colon (Athletics), Nelson Cruz (Rangers), Fautino de los Santos (Free agent), Yasmani Grandal (Padres), Fernando Martinez (Astros), Jesus Montero (Mariners), Jordan Norberto (Free agent), Jhonny Peralta (Tigers), Cesar Puello (Mets), Alex Rodriguez (Yankees)

NOTE: While Gio Gonzalez of the Nationals was listed as a client of Biogenesis it was found that he did not obtain banned substances.

DETAILS ON THE 2013 MLB ALL-STAR GAME STARTERS

Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, the 2013 leading vote-getter in Major League Baseball, and St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina, who led the National League in voting, will be among the starters in the 84th All-Star Game, to be played on Tuesday, July 16th at Citi Field in New York.  The 2013 American League and National League All-Star Teams were unveiled earlier this evening on FOX during the 2013 All-Star Game Selection Show Presented by Taco Bell.

Davis, who leads the Majors with 32 home runs and a .717 slugging percentage, totaled 8,272,243 votes as he surpassed the A.L.’s starting third baseman, Miguel Cabrera (8,013,874) of the Detroit Tigers, in the final week to finish as the leading vote-getter in all of baseball.  The Texas native is the second first-time All-Star to lead the Majors in voting, joining Ichiro Suzuki, who achieved the feat in his rookie season in 2001.  Davis also becomes the second Oriole to lead MLB in All-Star balloting, joining Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, Jr., who paced the Majors in 1992 and 1995.  Davis, now an All-Star for the first time in his career, has 83 RBI on the season, two shy of his career-high and team-leading total of 85 set in 2012.  He is just the third Orioles first baseman to earn a starting assignment, joining Boog Powell (1970-71) and Hall of Famer Eddie Murray (1985).

Cabrera, who leads the Majors with a .361 batting average, 120 hits, 86 RBI and a .451 on-base percentage, has secured his first career fan-elected start and his eighth Midsummer Classic selection overall.  The 2012 A.L. MVP and Triple Crown winner, who is also tied for the Major League lead with 65 runs scored, is just the fifth Tigers infielder in history to win a fan election, joining Lou Whitaker (1984-86), Alan Trammell (1988), Placido Polanco (2007) and teammate Prince Fielder (2012).

Molina, who will be making his third fan-elected start in five seasons (also 2009-10), received 6,883,258 votes to lead the N.L. ahead of his Cardinals teammate Carlos Beltran, who garnered 6,786,919 votes.  Molina, now a five-time All-Star overall, held on in a tightly contested race with San Francisco Giants backstop Buster Posey, who tallied the third-highest total in the N.L. with 6,474,088 votes.  Molina, who leads the N.L. with a .346 batting average and 26 doubles, becomes the fifth player in Cardinals history to earn at least three fan-elected starting assignments, joining Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith (12), Albert Pujols (5), Mark McGwire (3) and Scott Rolen (3).  The two-time World Series Champion also joins Hall of Famers Johnny Bench (10) and Gary Carter (8), as well as Mike Piazza (11) and fellow Puerto Rico native Benito Santiago (4) as the only N.L. catchers to receive at least three fan elections.

Beltran, who topped all N.L. outfielders in voting, claimed his second consecutive fan-elected start, his sixth career fan election and his eighth All-Star selection overall.  The Cardinals, with Beltran and Molina winning fan elections, have now had at least one player receive a fan election in each of the last five seasons, marking the longest active streak in the N.L.  In addition, St. Louis has now had an outfielder earn a starting nod in each of the last three seasons following Beltran’s selection a year ago and Lance Berkman’s election in 2011.  Beltran, a native of Puerto Rico, ranks fifth in the N.L. with 19 home runs and sixth with a .537 slugging percentage.

Joining Beltran in the N.L. outfield will be Carlos Gonzalez of the Colorado Rockies and Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals.  Gonzalez, an N.L. All-Star in 2012, finished second among N.L. outfielders with 4,214,904 votes.  The 27-year-old leads the N.L. with 23 home runs, 65 runs scored, 199 total bases and 50 extra-base hits, and he is tied for the league lead with nine outfield assists.  The Venezuelan native becomes just the third Rockies outfielder to earn a fan election, joining Dante Bichette (1996) and Larry Walker (1997-99).  Harper, who finished with 4,097,009 votes, came from behind in the final week of voting in a tight race for the final starting outfield spot.  The 2012 N.L. Rookie of the Year, who was the youngest All-Star position player in history and the third-youngest Major League All-Star ever in 2012, becomes just the second fan-elected starter in Nationals history, joining Alfonso Soriano (2006).  Harper, who finished just ahead of Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutchen (3,855,928) and Atlanta’s Justin Upton (3,678,190), will become the third-youngest player to start a Midsummer Classic.  According to Elias, the only players younger than Harper (20 years, 270 days on July 16th) to start a Midsummer Classic were Hall of Famer Al Kaline in 1955 (20 years, 205 days) and Ken Griffey, Jr. in 1990 (20 years, 231 days).

In the A.L. outfield, Adam Jones of the Orioles finished ahead of Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in a back-and-forth battle for the top outfield spot.  They are joined by 2011 leading vote-getter Jose Bautista of the Toronto Blue Jays.  Jones received 6,793,577 votes en route to his first fan-elected starting nod and his third All-Star selection overall.  The 27-year-old joins Hall of Famer Frank Robinson (1970-71), Ken Singleton (1981) and Brady Anderson (1997) as the only outfielders in Orioles history to be voted an All-Star by the fans.  Jones, a native of San Diego, ranks among A.L. leaders with 57 runs scored (T-4th), 104 hits (T-6th), 59 RBI (7th) and 22 doubles (T-9th).  Trout, who was the seventh-youngest A.L. position player in All-Star history last year, garnered 6,771,745 votes to earn his first fan-elected start.  The 21-year-old joins Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson (1982-84), Fred Lynn (1982-83) and Vladimir Guerrero (2004-07) as the only outfielders in Angels history to earn a fan-elected starting nod.  The New Jersey native is the only player in the A.L. to hit at least 10 home runs and steal at least 20 bases thus far in the 2013 season.  In addition, the reigning A.L. Rookie of the Year is tied for first in the Majors with 34 multi-hit games and he ranks third in the A.L. with 185 total bases and fourth with 108 hits and 45 extra-base hits.  Bautista collected 3,999,631 votes to hold off Nick Markakis of the Orioles (3,783,189) for the final A.L. outfield spot.  Bautista, a four-time All-Star, has now claimed a fan-elected starting assignment in each of the last three seasons becoming the first Blue Jays outfielder, and the second Blue Jays player ever, to receive three fan-elected starting assignments, joining Hall of Famer Roberto Alomar, who earned four consecutive fan-elected starts at second base from 1991-94.  The Dominican Republic native, who leads the Majors with 144 home runs since the start of the 2010 season, ranks third in the A.L. with 59 runs, is tied for third with 47 walks and tied for seventh with 20 home runs.

Joining Davis and Cabrera in the A.L. infield is New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano and Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy.  Cano, who is now an All-Star for the fifth time in his career, totaled 5,369,141 votes to become the first A.L. second baseman to receive four consecutive fan elections since Alomar earned five straight from 1996-2000.  The Dominican Republic native is also just the fourth Yankees infielder to secure four fan elections, joining Hall of Famer Wade Boggs (4), Derek Jeter (8) and Alex Rodriguez (6).  Cano, who will serve as the A.L. captain at the 2013 Chevrolet Home Run Derby, leads Major League second basemen with 20 home runs.  Hardy, who leads A.L. shortstops with 15 home runs and 46 RBI, claimed 5,283,144 votes en route to his second All-Star selection and first fan-elected starting nod.  The 2007 N.L. All-Star joins Ripken (1984-87, 89-96) and Miguel Tejada (2005) as the only Orioles shortstops to earn fan-elected starts.   Baltimore’s trio of starters – Davis, Jones and Hardy – tie a franchise record for fan-elected starters in a Midsummer Classic, joining Boog Powell and Hall of Famers Brooks Robinson and Frank Robinson in 1971, and Brady Anderson, Ripken and Alomar in 1997.

Cincinnati Reds teammates Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips man the right side of the N.L. infield, becoming the fifth pair of N.L. teammates (sixth time) to earn fan-elected starts at first and second base.  The others include Steve Garvey and Davey Lopes of the Los Angeles Dodgers (1979 and 1980), Pete Rose and Manny Trillo of the Philadelphia Phillies (1982), Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio of the Houston Astros (1997) and Prince Fielder and Rickie Weeks of the Milwaukee Brewers (2011).  Votto, who received 5,128,515 votes, claims his second consecutive fan-elected starting assignment and his fourth All-Star nod overall.  The 2010 N.L. MVP, who leads the N.L. with 60 walks and a .433 on-base percentage, is the first Reds player to earn consecutive fan-elected starts since Hall of Famer Barry Larkin (1999-2000).  Votto, a native of Canada, has reached base safely in 79 of his 86 games played this season, including his current season-high streak of 20 consecutive games.  Phillips, now a three-time All-Star, tallied 4,799,417 votes, holding off Matt Carpenter of the Cardinals (4,337,408) and 2012 NLCS MVP Marco Scutaro of the Giants (4,117,815), en route to his first career Midsummer Classic starting assignment.  Phillips, who leads the Majors with 24 go-ahead RBI and 13 game-winning RBI, is the first Reds second baseman to earn a fan election since Hall of Famer Joe Morgan received seven straight fan elections from 1972-78.

Rounding out the N.L. starters on the left side of the infield is third baseman David Wright of the hometown New York Mets, who received the fourth-largest total in the N.L. with 6,411,381 votes, and shortstop Troy Tulowitzki of the Colorado Rockies, who posted 5,404,860 votes.  Wright, who claims his seventh All-Star selection overall, becomes just the second N.L. third baseman to receive at least five fan-elected starts, joining Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt (9).  The 2013 Chevrolet Home Run Derby N.L. captain ranks among N.L. leaders with a .396 on-base percentage (4th), 43 walks (5th), five triples (T-6th), a .524 slugging percentage (7th), 37 extra-base hits (T-8th) and 14 stolen bases (9th).  Since June 5th, he is batting .363 (41-for-113) with 18 runs scored, 12 doubles, six home runs, 13 RBI and a .438 on-base percentage over 27 games.  Tulowitzki, who is currently on the disabled list with a broken rib, claims his third All-Star nod and his first career fan-elected starting assignment.  The 28-year-old, who joins first baseman Todd Helton (2001-03) as the only Rockies infielders to win a fan election, becomes the fourth consecutive different N.L. shortstop to earn the starting nod, joining Rafael Furcal (2012), Jose Reyes (2011) and Hanley Ramirez (2010).  In addition, Tulowitzki and Gonzalez become the first pair of Rockies teammates to earn starting bids together.

Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer and Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz round out the starters for the A.L. squad.  Mauer, who drew 5,443,856 votes, obtains his sixth career All-Star selection and his fourth fan-elected starting assignment behind the plate, joining Ivan Rodriguez (12) and Hall of Famer Carlton Fisk (7) as the only A.L. catchers to earn four fan-elected starts.  The 2009 A.L. MVP also becomes one of just three players in Twins history to accomplish the feat, joining Hall of Famers Rod Carew (9) and Kirby Puckett (6).  Mauer, the 2010 Major League leading vote-getter, leads Major League catchers with 49 runs scored and a .395 on-base percentage, and ranks second with 25 doubles and a .314 batting average.  Ortiz, now an All-Star for the ninth time in his career and a fan-elected starter for the seventh time, totaled 6,226,301, which was good for fifth overall in the A.L.  The Dominican Republic native becomes the 10th player in A.L. history to receive at least seven fan-elected starts with one team, joining Ripken (17), Hall of Famer George Brett (11), Ken Griffey, Jr. (10), Carew (9), Ivan Rodriguez (9), Ichiro Suzuki (9), Jeter (8), Hall of Famer Dave Winfield (7) and former teammate Manny Ramirez (7).  Since his season debut on April 20th, the 37-year-old ranks third in the Majors with 61 RBI, and with his 500th career double earlier this week, he became the 20th player in Major League history to reach both the 400-homer and 500-double milestones.

City of San Jose to File Antitrust Lawsuit Over Prevention of A's Relocating PDF Print E-mail

Oakland A'sWith MLB languishing on a decision, and the Giants saying they will not allow encroachment on their league territory, the City of San Jose is about ready to try and push the door open to the Oakland Athletics relocating there.

According to Raj Mathai , the weeknight news anchor and Sports Director Emeritus for NBC Bay Area (via Twitter), the City of San Jose will file an anti-trust lawsuit against the MLB in an effort to allow the club to relocate. Mathai reports that San Jose has hired a private law firm to represent them in the case. The city will reportedly file the suit on noon Pacific Time.

Based on Major League Baseball’s constitution and by-laws, there are defined physical territories for all 30 of the clubs. The Giants currently control Santa Clara Co. where the A’s are seeking to relocate. At one point the A’s controlled the county but Walter Haas relinquished it in the 1990s when then Giants owner Bob Lurie sought to relocate that team to San Jose. Two referendums for stadium funding failed, and only a last minute effort for a new ballpark in San Francisco saved the Giants from relocation out of the region. Even though the Giants never relocated to San Jose, the rights to Santa Clara Co. were reaffirmed, and they have stayed in the Giants control to this day.

In 2009, Bud Selig put together a blue-ribbon panel to try and reach some kind of solution on the relocation of the A’s to San Jose. To date, that panel has not been able to reach any solution that will satisfy the Giants.

The move by San Jose would be to challenge the league’s territorial alignments. The city will likely see an uphill battle. A case in 2009 by which former Blackberry CEO Jim Balsillie looked purchase the bankrupt Phoenix Coyotes of the NHL and relocate them against the will of the league to Hamilton, Ontario, Canada was shot down by the court. In that case, the judge sided that sports leagues have the right to assign club territories for business reasons. Currently the Giants and A's share the two-team Bay Area market in terms of television, radio, sponsors and potential fans.

There is no word on how the A’s fit into the lawsuit. It is highly unlikely that club will be a partner in the suit against Major League Baseball and instead will sit on the sidelines.

2013 MLB All-Star Game

National League All-Star manager Bruce Bochy of the San Francisco Giants and American League All-Star manager Jim Leyland of the Detroit Tigers today announced the managers who will serve as their coaches at the 84th All-Star Game, to be played on Tuesday, July 16th at Citi Field, the home of the New York Mets.

Bochy has named Mets manager Terry Collins and Washington Nationals skipper Davey Johnson, who guided the Mets to the 1986 World Series Championship, as his N.L. coaches. Collins will be an N.L. All-Star coach for the second straight season, having also been asked by N.L. manager Tony La Russa last season, and for the third time overall (his other appearance was at the 1995 All-Star Game in Texas). Johnson, the 2012 N.L. Manager of the Year, managed the NL in the 1987 All-Star Game in Oakland, and he served as a coach for Whitey Herzog at the 1986 All-Star Game in Houston. Johnson managed the Mets from 1984-1990, and his 595-417 (.588) mark represents the most wins and the best winning percentage in club history. Bochy’s Giants staff – third base coach Tim Flannery, bullpen coach Mark Gardner, first base coach Roberto Kelly, hitting coach Joe Lefebvre, hitting coach Hensley Meulens, pitching coach Dave Righetti and bench coach Ron Wotus – will assist with batting practice and other field duties. Head trainer Ray Ramirez of the Mets and head athletic trainer Lee Kuntz of the Nationals will tend to the N.L. All-Stars.

Leyland has invited Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura and Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons to represent the American League. Ventura, in his second year as the manager of the White Sox, was a two-time All-Star third baseman, including for the Mets in 1999, his first of three years with the club. He was a part of the Club’s National League pennant-winning 2000 season. Gibbons will serve as an A.L. coach for the second time, having worked for A.L. manager Ozzie Guillen at the 2006 Midsummer Classic in Pittsburgh. Gibbons was a catcher who played 18 games for the Mets in 1984 and 1986 before working as an instructor, coach and Minor League manager in the Mets system from 1991-2001. Leyland’s Tigers coaches – Rafael Belliard (first base), Tom Brookens (third base), Toby Harrah (assistant hitting), Jeff Jones (pitching), Gene Lamont (bench), Lloyd McClendon (hitting) and Mike Rojas (bullpen) – will work with the American League All-Stars. Head athletic trainers Ron Porterfield of the Tampa Bay Rays and Rick Jameyson of the Boston Red Sox will round out the A.L. All-Star staff.

The 2013 Midsummer Classic will be played at Citi Field on Tuesday, July 16th.
