    Jean Segura leaves Brewers after death of 9-month-old son

  • Horrible news out of Milwaukee: Brewers shortstop Jean Segura has left the team and is traveling to the Dominican Republic, where his 9-month-old son, Janniel, died Friday.We extend our deepest condolences to Jean Segura and his family on the loss of his young son.— Milwaukee Brewers (@Brewers) July 12, 2014Segura has been placed on the bereavement list. The news was first reported by Adam McCalvy of .com on his Twitter feed. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke met with the media Saturday morning. He told reporters that Segura found out after the Brewers' Friday home game against the Cardinals.From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: "He was sick," Roenicke said of Segura's son. "(Segura) was on the phone yesterday before the game, and they thought he was OK and getting better. I don't really know much more than that. "I don't know if it's been (going on) a while. Saying that, it may have been a couple days. I don't really know."The paper notes there are no plans for when Segura will return to the team. That's not the concern right now."He's emotional, he's young (24)," Roenicke told reporters. "That's why when I tell you I don't know what's going to happen with him, I worry about him."Having his mom here certainly helps, and his uncle. His uncle was in town last time when he had the thin夜网论坛g with getting hit and he went through that with him."He's young. These things aren't easy when we're our age. They're tough things."The Brewers observed a moment of silence for Janniel Segu[......]

    Baseball Hall of Fame 2015: Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez head stacked ballot

  • Six former players were elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame by the Baseball Writers Association of America this year, the first time that's happened since 1999.  The wait for the next time likely won't be as long. Next year's ballot includes two first-time candidates and one holdover who are strong candidates to be inducted into Cooperstown during the 2015 ceremonies. Top first-time candidatesRandy Johnson: With 303 wins, five Cy Youngs and 4,875 strikeouts, the Big Unit is a lock for immortality. He won't be unanimous (nobody ever is), but look for him to join Tom Seaver, Nolan Ryan and Greg Maddux among pitchers getting 97 percent or more of the vote.Pedro Martinez: Martinez didn't rack up the big career win numbers of some Hall of Famers (he had 219), but he was so dominant at his peak it's hard to see voters passing him over. He won three Cy Youngs, led his league in ERA five times and strikeouts three times and helped lead the Red Sox to their first World Series title in 86 years. His 2000 season was one of the greatest in history. John Smoltz: Smoltz has a strong resume and he will be elected to the Hall eventually, joining longtime teammates Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine. But with Johnson and Martinez topping the ballot, Smoltz likely will come up short in 2015.Gary Sheffield: Sheffield has the kind of numbers that ordinarily would mean an easy pass into the Hall. But he was linked to PEDs in the Mitchell Report, so he has no chance.Other first-time candidat[......]
