Derek Jeter Steps Away from Trash Marlins ... to Hang with Baby

5/23/2018 6:47 AM PDT
Breaking News

Here's a picture that's as adorable as the Miami Marlins are terrible ... both courtesy of Derek Jeter.

The MLB legend took some time away from his atrocious baseball team to hang with his wife, Hannah Jeter, and their baby, Bella Raine, in New York City. 

Props to Jeter for stepping away from his job as the CEO of the Marlins for a little while to squeeze in some quality family time ... but ya gotta wonder when he's gonna start freaking out about how bad his team is playing. 

The Marlins are 11.5 games out of 1st place in the NL East with no hope in sight (Fun Fact: the Marlins have scored the least amount of runs in all of MLB baseball). 

But, at least his kid's cute! 

Carlos Beltran Mets Don't Suck that Bad! ... Here's Why!!

5/23/2018 12:10 AM PDT

Good news Mets fans ... you don't completely suck this year -- so says Carlos Beltran, who says his former squad has a real shot to make a run this season. 

Of course, the Mets were absolute trash last year -- racking up a pitiful 70-92 record ... 27 games behind first place in their division. 

So, when we saw Beltran -- a 9-time All Star -- leaving Capitale in NYC, we asked if there's any real hope for success in MetLand. 

"I think that the Mets are going to be okay," Beltran tells TMZ Sports ... "I think that the season is early, I think that they have a lot of talent so there's no doubt that they have the talent to bounce back."

"The pitching staff looks great, the most important thing right there is to try to keep this guy healthy, and I think they have a good manager who was able to manage the starting pitcher in Cleveland and I think he's going to do a pretty good job for them." 

So, overall ... positivity from Beltran -- though he admits he hasn't been to a single Mets game yet this season. 

David Wells 'Disappointed' Over Robinson Cano

5/18/2018 6:42 AM PDT

Yankees legend David Wells ain't exactly thrilled with the whole Robinson Cano scandal ... telling TMZ Sports he's disappointed over Cano's 80-game suspension. 

Cano was popped for taking a banned substance -- though he INSISTS it was a prescribed medication and NOT a performance enhancing drug. 

But, not everyone is buying Cano's excuse ... considering the substance he took can be used as a masking agent for PEDs.

So, when we saw Wells in NYC, we asked if he was disappointed.

"Of course," he said ... noting, "I'm glad I'm not playing anymore."

We asked to explain his comment ... "Because 5 innings is a quality start."

He's definitely throwing shade at the new generation of MLB players -- essentially calling them soft.

We also asked about the Yanks vs. Red Sox rivalry ... Wells says it's good, but not like it used to be.

"Now they hug when they have a fight!"

BTW, props to Wells who hosted the Perfect 33 charity event Thursday night raising funds to support underprivileged kids and military families.

MLB's Adam Jones Buys Cal Ripken's $12.5 Mil Estate

Breaking News

From one Oriole to another ... MLB star Adam Jones just bought Cal Ripken Jr.'s insane $12.5 million Maryland estate!!

As we previously reported ... Ripken's been trying to part ways with the 24-acre estate since 2016 -- initially asking for $12.5 mil before knocking it down to $9.75 milli back in April 2017.

The Hall of Famer found a buyer in the current Baltimore slugger ... and according to Seth Rosenthal of The Athletic, Jones -- a real estate enthusiast -- couldn't pass up the sweet deal.

Jones' new crib comes with 6 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, a home theater, 10-person spa, private hiking trails, pool, baseball field, indoor basketball court, full gym and a private fishing pond!!

While the final selling price has not been made available, the 32-year-old has made nearly $100 million during his long career ... so yeah, just a drop in the bucket for Jones.

Ex-MLB'er Matt Mantei Convicted In Dom. Violence Case ... Avoids Jail Time

5/15/2018 8:35 AM PDT

Ex-MLB pitcher Matt Mantei was convicted of domestic violence after roughing up his wife, but he ain't gonna spend a minute behind bars ... TMZ Sports has learned.

We broke the story ... Mantei -- who was known for his 100 MPH heater during his 10-year career in the big leagues -- was arrested April 17 in Michigan after his wife told cops Mantei got physical with her while arguing over a cell phone.

She claimed the closer grabbed her, threw her to the floor, and held her down ... before letting her up and shoving her -- causing minor injuries.

Mantei appeared before a judge in Berrien County last Friday ... and pled no contest to 1 count of misdemeanor domestic violence. But, we're told the judge reviewed the evidence and found that Mantei committed the offense of domestic violence, according to prosecutor Michael Sepic.

With the conviction, comes punishment ... but no jail and no probation. 

Instead, we're told the former Marlin, D'Back and Red Sox flamethrower was merely ordered to pay $635 in court fees and fines ... which we're told he already paid -- so it's essentially, case closed.

To the victor go the shears!

Cleveland Indians star shortstop Francisco Lindor had made a bet with his old high school baseball team ... you guys go undefeated, I'll shave my entire head! 

Well, guess what ... the Montverde Academy squad in Florida went 25-0 -- and Lindor let the guys 86 his locks!!

The 24-year-old surprised the Eagles at a school assembly and let the players take turn shaving off his blonde curls. 

Hope it works out for the players in baseball, because they're TERRIBLE barbers. 

Props to Lindor for keeping his promise. And more props to Montverde for BEASTING OUT this season! 

Jennifer Lopez Ready, Aim, Selfie! ... At Yankees Game

Breaking News

You think Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez can go 9 innings without a selfie? Hell no! 

The power couple (along with J Lo's mom) hit up Yankees Stadium on Thursday night to watch NY take on the Boston Red Sox .... and you know they had to post the proof on social media. 

Of course, A-Rod used to play for the Yankees ... but last night, he was bad luck -- the Yankees lost to the Sox 5-4, snapping the 8-game winning streak. 

The good news ... Jenny's mom, Guadalupe, seemed to be having a blast at the game ... until the end.

Better luck next time ... 

J Lo & A-Rod Bailing on Balmain Met Gala Outfits But for a Good Cause

5/10/2018 9:22 AM PDT

J Lo and A-Rod's one-of-a-kind matching Met Gala outfits are going from the red (and white) carpet to an auction to raise money for (RED)'s fight to end AIDS.

The couple slayed Monday night in custom-designed Balmain looks from the creative director ,Olivier Rousteing. The theme was "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination," hence the cross on J Lo's chest.

Her dress took over a month to make ... the jewels on the feathers were sewn on by hand, which explains the $5k starting bid. A-Rod's tux starts at $1,500. 

The auction is a cool concept ... if you can rationalize spending that much on clothes, and also considering there's zero chance they would re-wear this stuff. Rousteing's other designs from the night for 'Daily Show' host Trevor Noah, Juliette Binoche and more are also up for auction. 

Bidding ends May 21 on

He's 3 years older than the AARP minimum age, but 53-year-old Rafael Palmeiro is still playing pro baseball -- signing a new deal with an independent league team in Texas! 

The 4-time MLB All-Star has agreed to play for the Cleburne Railroaders of the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball. 

What's really cool ... he'll be teammates with his 28-year-old son, Patrick

Palmeiro REALLY wanted to get a shot with an MLB team, but since that didn't happen ... he signed with the Railroaders. 

"Nobody gave me a chance to go to spring training," Palmiero said in a text message to the Dallas Morning News ... "so I will just take this path."

The season kicks off on May 18. Good luck! 

Yanks Manager Aaron Boone Red Sox Rivalry Is Back!

5/8/2018 1:34 PM PDT

How awesome is this?!

We just got Yankees manager Aaron Boone rushing to Yankees Stadium for Tuesday night's big game against the Boston Red Sox -- and he was cool enough to talk to our guy!!!

The big talk -- the rivalry ... which has gotten more intense this season for two reasons -- the Yanks and Sox have the best records in baseball PLUS the teams got into a brawl the last time they faced off in April. 

So, with pride and 1st place on the line ... how does Boone feel about the situation? 

"It's always big when these two teams get together," Boone said. 

"They're a great team. We think we have a good team ... so it's fun to be a part of."

As for concerns that tonight could get violent? 

"Nah, all good ... hopefully we'll just see a lot of good baseball."

By the way, Boone knows a thing or two about this rivalry -- he hit a walk-off homerun against the Sox in 2003 to send the Yanks to the World Series.

Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Roberto Osuna was arrested for assaulting a woman Tuesday morning ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports

Our sources say cops got an emergency call during the alleged attack and raced to the scene. 

Once they got there, Osuna was arrested for assault -- we're told the alleged victim is in a relationship with the MLB star. 

Osuna has since been released from custody -- he's due back in court on June 18. 

The 23-year-old was an All-Star in 2017 and was a prodigy as a child. 

He signed with the Blue Jays when he was only 16 years old and became the youngest pitcher in team history to appear in an MLB game. 

He recorded his 100th save on April 10. 

Yadier Molina Avoid Sex for 6 Weeks ... Say 'Botched' Docs

5/8/2018 6:40 AM PDT

After undergoing surgery to save his testicles, St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina should avoid stimulation to that area for at least 6 weeks ... so says the doctors from "Botched."

Dr. Terry Dubrow and Dr. Paul Nassif were both shocked to learn about the injury Molina suffered when he took a 102 mph fastball to the groin during a game on Saturday.

The team officially described the injury as a "pelvic injury with traumatic hematoma" -- but his brother noted that doctors were able to save both of his testicles during a 45-minute emergency surgery. 

So, when we saw the "Botched" docs in NYC ... we asked if they had any advice for Molina's recovery.

"The 'in general' for an injury is R.I.C.E. -- rest, ice, compression, elevation," Dubrow said.

"In this situation, I would recommend ice, not so much compression and stay away from any elevation down there ... if you know what I mean."

Don't worry, the guys say Molina should be cleared for boning in about 6 weeks.
