“People think that just because you’re married to a baseball
player, that you’re dumb, that you’re a gold digger, that you’re an
ex-stripper. That’s not the way it is. I still haven’t met that one
girl.”

— Laura Posada, law school graduate, author and wife of Jorge and star of tonight’s “E: True Hollywood Story: Baseball Wives”, on breaking the stereotypes.

I agree that’s ridiculous, and that “one girl” doesn’t exist. To the
contrary, there are hundreds of baseball wives. Many of the
ex-strippers are very smart, many of the dumb ones are in it for love,
not money, and many of the gold diggers are very prim and proper. To
paint them with such a broad brush is simply unfair.

Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports that Colby Rasmus has agreed to a minor league deal with the Baltimore Orioles.

Rasmus, 31, played only 37 games with the Rays last year. The reason: the previous offseason he underwent surgery to repair his left hip labrum and his core muscle, and the hip continued to bother him throughout spring training. He began the season on the disabled list and made his debut on May 2, hitting .281/.318/.579 in 129 plate appearances before going back on the DL June 23. He’d never return, “stepping away” from the game in the words of the club, which placed him on the restricted list for the remainder of the season.
