Mashup: MLB looks into leak of financials

Major League Baseball is investigating how detailed financial information on teams was leaked to the media. The data shows that the Pirates are still profitable despite 18 losing seasons, and it details how much lower-echelon teams receive in profit-sharing. Also in the news, Sammy Sosa emerged from seclusion in Miami and talked about how the Cubs painted him to be "a monster" during their fallout in 2005. Read more about those stories, plus check out video of another incredible, wall-climbing catch in Japanese baseball, at Tuesday's Morning Mashup.

Judge: No more radio shows for Clemens

According to the New York Post, Washington D.C. federal Judge Reggie Walton mandated that Roger Clemens, his lawyers, and any witnesses involved in the perjury case against the former pitcher to keep quiet and avoid any public comments about the matter. According to the report, Walton said he "will not tolerate such behavior from anyone" involved.

 

The instructions from Walton comes after Clemens appeared on WEEI's 'The Big Show' Friday afternoon during the WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Telethon, during which he talked about the chance to "have our day" and how he no longer speaks with Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte. For a complete transcript of what Clemens had to say to Glenn Ordway and Lou...

Okajima tagged in rehab outing

Red Sox left-hander Hideki Okajima gave up four runs and four hits while retiring just one batter while pitching for Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday. Okajima, in his second rehab outing while working his way back from a hamstring strain, allowed three singles and a homer. He threw 13 of his 16 pitches against Buffalo for strikes.

 

Okajima is 4-3 with a 5.85 ERA in 40 appearances this year for the Red Sox. He landed on the 15-day disabled list on Aug. 6, and is now eligible to come off of it. But the Sox will hold off on deciding on his next step until they examine him when he is back in Boston on Tuesday.

Damon: Gut is saying stay in Detroit

Johnny Damon told reporters in Detroit following his team's 12-3 victory over the Royals that he is still leaning towards exercising his right to veto a deal that would send him to the Red Sox.

 

"My gut and everything else tells me Detroit's the place for me," Damon told reporters, though he did allow that he might rethink that stance if he was told by the Tigers that they wanted to play younger players.

 

The Sox were awarded a waiver claim on the 37-year-old on Monday. The Tigers, Red Sox and Damon have two days to decide whether a) Detroit will let Damon go to the Sox, either simply letting the Sox take him on waivers or by working out a deal and b) Damon will accept a deal that would send him...

Seattle dew: Sox beat M's at soggy Fenway

Marco Scutaro matched a career-high by driving in four runs in support of starter John Lackey, who fanned a season-high 10 batters as the Red Sox beat the Mariners, 6-3, on Monday in the three-game series opener at Fenway Park.

 

Lackey, whose previous high strikeout total this season was seven, allowed scattered six hits over eight innings, allowing three runs — two earned — while walking two. 

 

Scutaro's second two-run single of the night in the seventh inning snapped a 3-3 tie and propelled the Sox to their third straight win. 

 

Remarkably, the grounds crew had the field ready to go on time, despite heavy, driving rain in the hours leading up to first pitch. The Red Sox improved to 5-2 on their nine-game homestand.
