The Hot Corner, 5/8 edition

Michael O'Keefe of the New York Daily News points out that several Scott Boras clients have tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs, such as A-Rod, Manny, Bonds, Sheffield, etc.

Yankees reliever Brian Bruney has resumed throwing making 30 throws from 60 feet (flat ground) Thursday.

The Tigers will start pitcher Dontrelle Willis on Wednesday against the Twins.

The Red Sox activated outfielder Rocco Baldelli, who went 1-for-4 in last night's 13-3 win over the Indians. "He moved well defensively," [manager Terry] Francona said. "He had some real good at-bats."

The start of the Manny Ramirez 50-day suspension period ended the Dodgers' record-setting home winning streak by losing to the Nationals 11-9.

According to reliever Octavio Dotel, via the Chicago Sun-Times, use of a language barrior as an excuse is ''stupid, that's what I think,'' Dotel said. ''From a guy coming from my area, my country, you have to know what is going on in the major-league rules and how hard they are going with this. And they're still getting caught. So I think that's stupid by our [Latin American] players.''

Dom DiMaggio has passed away at the age of 92. His 34-game hitting streak is still a record for the Red Sox.

White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle gave up only one hit against the Detroit Tigers in a 6-0 win.

The Dodgers "Mannywood" package that included two tickets and two Manny t-shirts will allow fans to receive a Dodgers t-shirt instead of a Manny t-shirt. And the team will offer refunds to those who purchased their tickets in hopes of seeing Manny.

Mets 3B David Wright is finally in a groove and is hitting .450 (9-for-20) in his last six games with two homeruns and seven RBIs in that span.

Yankees catcher Jose Molina, who suffered a strained quad, is likely to join Yankees catcher Jorge Posada on the DL.
