With major league baseball season soon to start, let's hear some gossip about the players, past and present.

Derek Jeter looks hot on the cover of GQ this month.

One story that sticks with me is Joey Votto being gay. No proof of course, but the speculation has been there for a few years now. He needed to take time off a few years back. The story is that he had a sort of breakdown over the death of his father. But there has also been rumbling that he had to also deal with his sexuality. %0D %0D It's a fun story to believe because he's a great player and seems like a cool guy, but there really doesn't seem to be anything to support it.

Watching "Celebrity Apprentice" with Jose Conseco made me think, didn't he name players when asked about who used steroids in the major league? If so, who did he rat out?

by Anonymousreply 1003/22/2011

In his book, Canseco said that in his experience 85% of major league players were using. The better-known players that he specifically named in the book are Rafael Palmeiro, Joan Gonzalez, Ivan Rodriquez, Jason Giambi, and Mark McGwire. %0D %0D Even though McGwire has finally come out on the issue, I believe he still denies Canseco's stories of those two sneaking into restroom stalls together to shoot each other up.

Chipper Jones from the Braves had an affair w/ a Hooters skank and had a baby. First marriage ended because of it.

by Anonymousreply 3804/02/2011

R30 here. R35 is correct about the chronology but nope, I actually don't like the extreme body builder type, like what Jason Giambi and Barry Bonds looked like on roids. I just felt that the players happened to be better looking on average a few years ago. Remember Tim Hudson, Mark Mulder, and Barry Zito all on the Oakland A's? There were other hot players on that same early 00s A's team as well.

by Anonymousreply 3904/02/2011

R12, I don't know anything about Jim Palmer but add me to the list of people interested in dirt on him. All I've heard about him is that he has a huge ego and isn't especially kind.

Speaking of former Orioles though, DL favorite Brady Anderson is definitely bisexual, not that that hasn't been confirmed before. There were rumors about him and Scott Erickson back in the day, also a former Oriole. (Erickson got around a lot with women too.)

Frankly, there doesn't seem to be much gay gossip about MLB players. I always keep my eye out for it but all people usually have to offer is some story usually involving Jeter and Arod or Posada and none of it sounds especially credible. There have to be gay players and I wish more people would leak info.

Comments on 2 previous posts%0D %0D R40 I was always a Brady Anderson fan and hoped that someday he would either come out or be exposed (credibly) as gay or bi. Still no such luck. But I wonder about his dick and nutsack. I suppose it's arguable, but most people believe that he was one of the steroid pumpers. So while he was a physical specimen in shorts, I'd like to know what the roids did to the package inside his shorts.%0D %0D R30 I agree that there are only a handful of current baseball players that strike me as great looking. But when you look at the line-ups of the college teams, it's one hot stud after another. It seem like not enough of those players are good enough to make it onto major league teams. It's a shame for those of us who enjoy the game, but also like a little eye candy.

We have season tickets and I know what his car looks like. I plan to say to him: "If you weren't so damned handsome, sir, I wouldn't be gay".%0D Another cute Giant star, Cody Ross, pings my 'dar.

by Anonymousreply 5004/02/2011

R46, re: Brady Anderson, as of a couple of years ago, he was still hoping to be seen by the public as straight. A couple of years ago, TMZ put up a video on its site documenting how Brady was trying to hook up with a TMZ's staffer's (female) friend. I have to assume that this was all PR on Brady's part, since there's no reason for TMZ to care about Brady Anderson. Maybe he thought he was going to make a run for it in movies/TV a few years ago (pure speculation on my part).

I know this has been mentioned on DL many-a-time before, but it was essentially an open secret in Baltimore that he was living with a little-known player for some of the late 90s named Rene Gonzales. He slept with women during this time as well though. He's one of the few men around I'd guess is truly bisexual.

I don't think there's anyone around who believes Brady didn't use steroids. Even Jim Palmer nonchalantly mentioned Brady having used a few years ago. I don't think Palmer would say that if he didn't have very good reason to believe (i.e. inside knowledge) that Brady used. Brady sure was hot though. A few of the Orioles in the mid/late 90s were attractive: Scott Erickson, Brady, Mike Bordick, Mike Mussina, and even Jimmy Key.

R48, Eric Chavez definitely does deserve to be included on the list of hot A's from the early 2000s. He's on the Yankees now. He supposedly got around a LOT (with women, unfortunately) -- not sure if that's still the case. Bobby Crosby from that team was cute too.

If anyone has some gay gossip, please spill. The only thing I can think of is that pitcher Rich Harden has had rumors about him swirling for years but I've never heard anything specific or anything that struck me as especially credible. Anyone else heard the same?

Brady seems like he is all over the place with men AND women. He had them both coming and going out of his apartment in Baltimore for years. He was supposed to have dated a model named Ingrid, who went on to marry Jeff Gordon, the race car driver also rumored to be into guys. (professional beard?)

He also was supposed to be dating tennis player Amanda Coetzler - I remember reading that she wouldn't talk about their relationship for some reason.

Brady is rumored to have had a few boyfriends. I don't know if he has had a *real* girlfriend outside of female sex partners.

During the time of the TMZ video, Brady was thinking about auditioning for the Bachelor and appeared on Spike TV's pro vs. Joes. That TMZ video was such a practically had Brady jumping on a couch and screaming "I'm straight!"

Personally, it sounds like he doesn't know what he likes. He hasn't had any serious relationships and he's in his mid forties now. Fear of relationships?

As for steroids, it was a common joke around MLB that he bulked up on the stuff. Derek Jeter made a comment about how much he admired Brady for his 50 home run season (both being lead-off hitters). In reality, Jeter was really goofing on Brady and his "accomplishments." The Baltimore newspaper removed the sarcasm.

I met someone who said he dated Brady and he complained that Brady slept around on both sides of the bed (men and women).He also stated Brady took steroids. Personally, I don't mind the steroids as much as I hated the self-important denials and preaching about his work-ethic. He really smelled of false modesty.

Finally, Brady has a child with some singer of a rock band in LA. He probably "dated" her, but broke up with her soon after the birth of their daughter. The woman was a big groupie who claimed she dated rock stars like the guy from Guns n Rose (Slash) and someone from another group I can't remember. That particular rock star appeared on Howard Stern and denied that he was dating or even engaged to her. When the guy mentioned that he woman was dating some baseball player and having his kid, Artie screamed out, "Who? Mr. Steroids" Howard had to bleep Artie who according to Howard had named the guy as also being gay (obviously Brady).

The woman seemed like such a star fucker who hit the gold mine when she got pregnant. As a future psychologist, I would love to analyze him.

by Anonymousreply 5604/03/2011

I think Brady would probably fuck anything that he thought was as hot as he is. Male or female. Guys who are so into their bodies and grooming usually are.

Was it Roberto Alomar's ex who sued him for infecting her with HIV? And I always heard that the incident where he spit on the umpire happened after the umpire called him a faggot. Alomar always seemed like a joyless prick, but if the story is true, being a self-loathing gay player in MLB makes a lot of sense, and was the one thing that made me feel compassion for him.

R56/BiPolarBear....GREAT gossip. Thank you! DL needs more posts like that. I would have laughed so hard had Brady gone on The Bachelor.

Do you have any gossip on any of the other late-90's Orioles? I loved that team. So disappointing they never made the World Series. I had a thing for Scott Erickson and Mussina, but looking back, even Cal Ripken Jr was pretty hot.

Here's another TMZ video/PR stunt of him going into an LA club. One of the commenters (you have to scroll down) says that his boyfriend is the guy in the video with him. Of course this video is from a few years ago, so who knows if they're still together, but I can see the guy behind him being Brady's type.

Toward the end of his time with the Cubs, when Sosa went home claiming injury or sickness or something, his teammates took a bat to his boom box he used to play Latin music really loud in the clubhouse. He also made a huge deal out of it when a media person classified him as black (he's Dominican but had super dark skin) and after an appearance after he retired there's been rumors he dyes his skin lighter.%0D %0D Sexy 1st baseman Mark Grace was a total male whore. He invented the term slumpbuster. %0D %0D In the heartbreaking 2003 season (the one that had the "Bartman game" for the chance to go to the World Series), groupies have come forward to claim that certain players went out drinking with them until late in the morning the night before Game 7 in that series.

- he's very intense at the ballpark pre-game. not nasty, but very focus.

- he eats PB&J pre-game

Jim Thome is supposed to be one of the nicest when it comes to fans and helping out rookie players etc. He is Twins player now. Add him to the roster of Mauer, Morneau, Cuddeyer, Span etc., and you have a good team to follow and decent players to root for, but not a lot in juicy gossip. The local sports media has commented numerous times how boring this team is to cover in regards to off-field antics. They said part of it is the awareness of phone-cameras, twitpics etc, so they are even reluctant to have a few beers in public.

by Anonymousreply 6904/04/2011

Steve Carlton had issues. I believe his father was an alcoholic and some reporter in Phila reported on it and he stopped talking to the press.

Which was great, as you just knew him as a great pitcher. Years after retirement, he started talking and wished he never did.

Yes, he had copper tubing installed in his house, believe Hilary Clinton and the Jews were behind some conspiracy. AIDS was to get rid of gays and blacks.

I think he's backpedaled in recent years.

Being a Phillies fan, can we talk about Lenny Dykstra? Even before he left the Phils, he had a slew of troubles, most of them self-caused -- car accidents mostly due to drunk driving, sexual harassment law suits, using derogatory words about gays, blacks and women in business meetings. And just a few years ago, he was bankrupt and forced out of his houses. When the authorities went into one, it was described as pig sty, with walls being practically destroyed or with graffiti on them and rooms with piles of dog shit in them.

During his time in Philly, Lenny was also known to get stinking drunk at bars and clubs, sometimes causing fights but often picking up as many girls as he could and it wasn't unusual for him to leave with two or more. He could also be seen vomiting on the sidewalks on occasion. Like most players, I think it was just a guy having too much money and too much recognition at a young age and no one wanted to rein him in.

I was in a bar with Steve Carlton his first year with the Phils and didn't even recognize him - he had just started with the team and I only knew him by name and he was a great pitcher. Anyway, he was with Tim McCarver who was the Phillies cathcher then and they were drunk out of their minds (Carlton tried to stand on his head) and they were with these two bimbo girls around 22 or 23 who introduced themselves to us as their 'wives', LOL! The bartender told us who they were but we didn't bother saying anything to them.

Everyone in Cincinnati knows that Johnny Bench is gay, and as Red-necked as the city is (pun intended) everyone loves him so much that they ignore the obvious.

Interestingly, his Wiki entry doesn't mention any marriage. In fact, He was married for 13 months to Vicki Chesser, a model and beauty pageant winner. It did not work out. At all.

She said she should have known something was up when he spent the wedding night getting drunk and playing ping pong with Joe Morgan.

Great Johnny Bench story: Reds manager Sparky Anderson told him that he was thinking of trading for knuckleballer Phil Niekro. Bench replied that Anderson had better trade for Niekro's catcher, too. (Wiki)

Sandy Koufax worked for the Dodgers when Tommy Lasorda was the manager. He hated Tommy Lasorda and the feeling was mutual. Lasorda is a vicious homophobe whose son died of AIDS.

The New York Post outed Koufax saying that was the issue.

Lenny Dykstra was hot back in the day, but it was all over when he showed up in Mets' spring training camp in '87 or '88 looking like the Pillsbury Dough Boy. Even though he hit lead-off, the siren call of steroid-induced home runs was too much, I guess.

Is there anything else known about the wife swapping trade? According to Wikipedia, the trade worked out well for Fritz Peterson.

by Anonymousreply 21207/01/2011

Kekich was traded to Cleveland shortly after the news about the swap broke in 1973--Peterson was viewed as the better player of the two. However, neither had a memorable career, though Peterson had a couple of good years with bad Yankee teams in 1969 and 1970. He was gone, though, before the Yankees started winning again in 1976.

I remember when the news of the swap broke in 1973, and it was considered quite shocking. Baseball is the most conservative of sports, and the Yankees are historically the most conservative of teams, so the shit really hit the fan. Kekich and Peterson were seen as doing something only hippies and "free love" advocates did (little did anyone know). There was much tut-tutting about the deterioration of the national moral fiber, what rotten role models these two players were, and yadda yadda. Once Kekich was traded, that was the end of the blather.

R228 - I was listening to that game on the radio and even I could tell that the ump had blown the call.

There has to be some kind of penalty for umps not just for making a bad call that makes a mockery of a six-hour game, but for making consistently bad calls throughout a game, which is what that umpire did. Nobody playing the game could tell what his strike zone would be from one pitch to the next. The fact that he ended the game with a bad call (clearly he just wanted to go to bed) was just the sour icing on a rotten cake.

MLB needs instant replay for disputed calls when the entire outcome of the game is at stake.

Good riddance to one of the worst human beings in the game. Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano has long been a hothead with no control of his own temper, but has also been a great hurler for several years. He lost it again tonight pitching against the Braves and possibly made it his last MLB effort.

Dan Uggla hit 2 home runs off him and Chipper Jones hit 1. So Zambrano threw at both hitters the next time they were each up to bat. Uggla took one on or just above his plump ass (little chance of doing too much damage). Z threw 2 consecutive way inside pitches at Chipper's groin area, but Jones was able to dodge them (and can probably still father children thanks to his quick reflexes). Immediately after the second throw at Jones, Zambrano was thrown out of the game. When the game was over and the players returned to the locker room, Big Z had cleaned out his locker and announced his immediate retirement.

What a fucking asshole this guy has always been - and I'd say that whether I liked the Cubbies or not. He screws his own team over with purposely getting ejected in the third inning (speculation is that he threw at Chipper twice because he wanted to get yanked) and then fucks them worse by quitting the team altogether. Apparently it's an anger management issue, or some such bullshit. Whatever.

I'm hoping he's serious about his quitting the game, but I suppose we'll see tomorrow if he settles down. The Cubs and MLB are really better off without him.

It will be one of the biggest upsets in baseball history if the Phillies don't win the World Series. They are a superstar team this year.

I also think they happen to have the hottest team I can think of!

Chase Utley Cliff Lee Cole Hamels Ryan Madsen Michael Stutes Shane Victorino Hunter Pence etc

who do you think is gonna be in there "It Gets Better" video? maybe Utley, Howard, Hamels, Rollins, Victorino?

Do you think Cole Hamels is gay? I know he's married to that Survivor woman, but she doesn't seem to have any sex appeal (despite her nude photos).

I completely randomly stumbled across this doing an image search. It's Mickey Mantle naked in the locker room. NSFW! He looks ... hot.

Lenny Dykstra is at it again. Whipping out his schwantz for chicks he met on Craigslist. Nothing unusual about that normally, but these chicks thought they were interviewing for a legit job.

Chase Utley didn't travel to Milwaukee with the rest of the Phillies after getting beaned in the head in last night's game. Early reports said he had concussion-like symptoms (supposedly, he asked the home plate umpire "where did I get hit?") and he's to have medical testing on Saturday.

by Anonymousreply 24909/08/2011

Not a BoSox fan here, but I came across this pic and thought some might appreciate it. It's their rookie Jose Iglesias wearing some kind of bedroom wear that I'm not even all that familiar with, but I know it gets a lot of guys excited.

by Anonymousreply 25109/26/2011

It seems like this was the week for the MLB clubs to haze the rookies. There was a report that the Phillies did the same thing in making them dress in costumes.

Here's a picture of Anthony Recker from the A's rookie hazing night in drag as Minnie Mouse. Click pic to enlarge.

by Anonymousreply 25309/29/2011

You posted the exact picture and message in the other baseball thread.

Recker has huge arms with no definition. He's going to turn to lard when he retires.

by Anonymousreply 25409/29/2011

R254, I think Recker needs to worry more about his ass than his arms.

The D-back's Ryan Roberts is such a handsome guy, but I'm one of those that can't stand the abundance of tats he has. I tried to find a shirtless pic of him to see just how inked he really is, but just like with most hot ballplayers, shirtless pics have been hard to come up with.

He'll be getting a little more attention now that Arizona is in the playoffs.

by Anonymousreply 25609/29/2011

I'm not one of those "down with tattoo" trolls, but he looks fucking retarded with that gigantic neck tattoo, R256. Couldn't he find another hobby?

by Anonymousreply 25709/29/2011

Watch for upcoming secrets coming out about the Chicago Cubs locker room antics.

by Anonymousreply 25810/06/2011

YahooSports has a story (attached) about Ryan Roberts and it gives me what I've been hoping for - shirtless pics taken from a feature in a tattoo magazine. It looks like he also has a star 'carved' into his torso below his left pec. There is no ink, so it just looks like scar tissue. Is that what it looks like when someone has a tattoo removed or is that something else?

The TBS cameras seem to love Roberts, or rather they did love him while the D-backs were still in the postseason. Will be sad to not seem him again until March.

Okay, the 2011 season is over but some interesting news regarding the (rumored) biggest cock in MLB.

Jim Thome, Phillies agree to one-year deal

by Anonymousreply 26011/04/2011

Allegedly biggest cock and nicest guy in the league, R260. Interesting that he's going to an NL team. They must plan on using him exclusively as a pinch hitter which means we won't see him too often. But it gives him a chance to go out with a ring because the Phillies, as they were this year, are once again expected to end the season with a pennant if not a World Series victory.

by Anonymousreply 26111/04/2011

Any chance that Thome likes to visut gay bars on occasion?

by Anonymousreply 26211/04/2011

Doubtful R262, but please report any sightings you might have of him next season.

Also of note for fans of Grady Sizemore, the Indians didn't pick up his contract for next season and he's now a free agent. So he might bringing his hot body (as we've all seen thanks to sexting) to a town near you next year. Too bad he's apparently made of straw and breaks down very easily.

I don't think I've ever heard gayvoice as blatant from a "supposed" straight man as I have from Brady Anderson. Dude is definitely gay. He and Cal were thisclose when they were Orioles. I wonder if they ever fucked.

by Anonymousreply 28006/28/2014

Brady used to rollerblade shirtless in Baltimore's Inner Harbor back in the day, his glistening, rippling body on display for the masses to admire and adore.

by Anonymousreply 28106/28/2014

When Brady Anderson was inducted into the Baltimore Orioles Hall of Fame Cal Ripken, Jr. introduced him and called him "the greatest leadoff hitter in Orioles baseball, and the best athlete I have ever played with."

During Ripken's induction ceremony to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2007, he described Anderson as "simply my best friend."

by Anonymousreply 28206/28/2014

Ripken has also used those words to describe O's legend Eddie Murray. How fun, imagining big, strapping Eddie breaking in Cal's virgin bubble butt at the start of his career and Cal doing the same thing to Brady in later years.
