Darryl Strawberry says he had sex in the clubhouse during games


Tonight is the premiere of ESPN’s 30-for-30 documentary “Doc and Darryl.” It’s, of course, about infamous Mets greats Dwight Gooden and Darryl Strawberry. It’s on at 9 p.m. ET. Based on the stuff Strawberry is saying while making the media rounds to promote it, you’re probably gonna want to see it.

Among the things he’s saying is stuff we all have long known: he drank, he used drugs, he was a wild man in ways that he’d never be able to get away with if he played in the teens instead of the 80s. But there are still some new ones.

Like the thing he said today on Evan Cohen and Mike Babchik’ “Morning Men” radio show on Sirius/XM about how he had sex at a baseball stadium. Like, in the middle of games. Games in which he was playing. He’d just see someone in the stands and have the clubhouse kid go get her and bring her to the clubhouse.

And you thought that business with Rickey Henderson and Bobby Bonilla playing cards in the clubhouse during the 1999 playoffs was bad.


Orioles option LHP Bruce Zimmermann to minors

Brent Skeen-USA TODAY Sports

SARASOTA, Fla. – The Baltimore Orioles have optioned left-handers Bruce Zimmermann and Nick Vespi and reassigned infielder Lewin Díaz, left-hander Darwinzon Hernandez and catcher Mark Kolozsvary to minor league camp.

The Orioles announced the moves Monday.

Baltimore’s spring training roster now has 46 players.

Zimmermann made 13 starts last season. He went 2-5 with a 5.99 ERA.

The competition for rotation spots with the Orioles has been a significant story during spring training, but after the team acquired Cole Irvin and Kyle Gibson in the offseason – and with top prospect Grayson Rodriguez in the mix as well – there were a lot of pitchers Zimmermann needed to beat out.
