Brandon McCarthy Tells Columnist Not To Call Him A "Grinder," Columnist…

The Arizona Diamondbacks spent the offseason transforming into baseball's most complete collection of gritty players who really know how to get out there and scrap and grind and chop it up.

Laz Diaz Blows An Obvious Call, Ejects Bob Melvin In More Time Than It…

Another Reason Baseball Players Shouldn't MySpace

This is CJ Wilson, a reliever for the Texas Rangers, an up-and-comer, a LOOGY, if you will. He also has a MySpace page and is pals with teammate Brandon McCarthy, who also has a MySpace page.
