    Our old buddy Carl Pavano said to be victim of extortion plot by male former classmate claiming they were sexually intimate:

    Right-hander Carl Pavano has been targeted by an extortion plot involving a former high school classmate, his family told the Record-Journal of Meriden. Pavano's family told police that Christian Bedard, 36, of Southington, Conn., tried to extort money and a luxury SUV from Pavano by threatening to publicly reveal a three-year "emotional and physical relationship" the two had while attending Southington High School.
    Southington police seized a laptop and journal from Bedard's home last week but have not charged him. Pavano's sister told the newspaper that Bedard's claims are false.

    And from the soon to collect Social Security benefits department:
    http://video.msnbc.msn.com/nightly-n...0678/#46910504
    NBC news has learned the Colorado Rockies are expected to announce today that 49-year-old Jamie Moyer will be named to the team's starting roster. The left-hander will then take a shot at history, pitching in the first weekend of the baseball season at 49, if he wins, he'll be the oldest pitcher ever to win a major league game. He made his debut in 1986, when many of his teammates were not born.

    Votto is close to a $200m extension with the Reds.

    Good to see a smaller market team pay their superstar for once. Also, he wont be going to the Blue Jays.

    In other Reds news...wtf?

    http://rotoworld.com/player/mlb/5757/aroldis-chapman

    Reds manager Dusty Baker announced Monday that Aroldis Chapman will pitch out of the bullpen this year.

    Chapman did all he could this spring to convince the Reds that he's ready to be a starter, posting a 2.12 ERA and 18/2 K/BB ratio in 17 Cactus League innings. But Baker told reporters Monday that he wants to have a reliable left-hander in the bullpen, and Bill Bray hasn't been cutting it.
    https://twitter.com/#!/johnfayman/st...57322159681537

    Baker: "He's a starter, a very good starter. But Billy Bray isn't ready to be late-inning lefty right now."

    Another mind numbingly stupid decision by Dusty Baker. Chapman was looking great this spring, so let's stick him in the bullpen because we need a LOOGY.

    Soriano is still the most expensive setup reliever this season. Reds mgmt must be thrilled that their $32, million investment is an 8th inning guy.

    I didn't see what happened leading up to the pitch, but Tulo was the one who initially reacted like he wanted to brawl (not blaming him, getting plunked sucks), and Ubaldo followed suit.

    There had been a back and forth between the two in the papers following Jimenez getting dealt from Colorado, so there was bad blood leading up to the game.

    How do Acta and Tracy not know of this before the game? and even if one of them did why was the umpire not warned?

    I keep reading/hearing that there was a lot of chirping going on in the press between Jimenez and Tulo but I haven't seen an actual quote other than Jimenez saying something to the effect that he's much happier in Cleveland. That doesn't exactly strike me as fighting words. Anyone know what exactly was said leading up to this incident?

    This one gives new meaning to the term “hurler.”

    Colorado Rockies pitcher Josh Outman - acquired from the Oakland A’s this offseason - was expected to start the year pitching out of the team’s bullpen.

    Instead, he will begin it on the disabled list. The left-hander vomitted so violently after a bout with food poisoning, he strained his oblique.
    So let's see, David Price injured his neck toweling off; now Outman injures himself vomiting, what's next?
    (No trampoline jokes please.)
