Part of Ringolsby's anti-A-Rod screed gets axed

You know that “A-Rod represents everything that is wrong with baseball” column written by Tracy Ringolsby from this morning?  Yeah, a whole bunch of it has been removed or changed by FOX, some of it for being wrong, some of it, apparently, for rubbing people the wrong way.

Lisa Swan at SubwaySquawkers has the details.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers signed outfielder Jason Heyward to a minor league deal and invited him to spring training.

The 33-year-old was released by the Chicago Cubs earlier this offseason.

Heyward, who was injured at times last season, put up the worst offensive numbers of his career, batting .204 and with 10 RBIs and one home run in 137 plate appearances. However, he’s a valuable defender in the outfield.

The deal reunites Heyward with first baseman Freddie Freeman. They came up through the Atlanta Braves system and have remained friends ever since.

Heyward was a leader in the Cubs’ clubhouse, helping them win the 2016 World Series.
