Who knew that Jason Grimsley would be the star for an entire week of news cycles? We get a few perspectives on his situation, plus a look at managing and the effects of struggling.

"I am deeply saddened whenever there is an allegation that a Major League Baseball player is involved in the use of performance-enhancing substances. Because this is an ongoing criminal investigation, I will not make any comment about this specific case. As a general matter, however, I urge everyone associated with Major League Baseball--from the players to the union to the owners--to cooperate with the ongoing investigations by the Federal government and by former Senator George Mitchell."
--MLB Commissioner Bud Selig, responding to the Grimsley situation (MLB.com)

Quick hits from around the last week in baseball, including a Jim Leyland on-field tirade, a few ex-Royals saying nice things about their past employer, a tip of the cap to Nomar Garciaparra, and just two (count 'em: two) lines about steroids.

The Royals were my team. That was the team I rooted for growing up. I continue to root for them. I want to see them pull out of this. … It's sad, but they just kind of want to sit there now and collect revenue sharing."

Bonds gets closer to passing Ruth, Cole Hamels gets called up (no pressure, kid), and a few teams sort out their injury trouble.

"He was just trying to make a catch. Sometimes your glove sticks in the ground, and your wrist is moving in one direction and your glove is moving in the other. It's only preventable if you go out there and don't try to make a play. Matsui's not that type of player."
--Yankees center fielder Johnny Damon, on the injury to Hideki Matsui (New York Times)
