Cleveland Indians pitcher Fausto Carmen gets caught using a false identity. His real name is Roberto Hernandez Heredia and had been using this false name for several years. The case came to light when the Fausto Carmona's family discovered he had signed a new contract for an additional $7million dollars and want their cut. When the pitcher balked, the mother went on a highly rated radio program in the Dominican Republic and outed him and that he is actually three years older than he originally claimed. Cleveland now has to determine if they can void his contract.

Outfielder Manny Ramirez, according to ESPN, says he has signed a one year deal with Oakland. Sources say the contract is $500,000 which wouldn't cost the A's much should they decide release him. Man Ram, as one sportscaster, has called him, would still have to serve a 50 game suspension for testing postive for a banned substance, a suspension he was trying to weasel out of by retiring last year.

Baseball has expanded the playoff starting this year. There will now be 10 teams from each league in the playoffs. The first round will be a one game series with the same format in each succeeding round. Those connected with game obviously see this as a positve. The downside is with this year's schedule set, the postseason had to be compressed to fit in the extra games, fewer off days for travel. The biggest thing this accomplishes is that it drags the seson into November.
