Dave Concepcion, Steve Garvey, Tommy John, Billy Martin and Ted Simmons also are held over from the 2010 expansion era committee ballot, while Dave Parker and Dan Quisenberry have been added. Vida Blue, Ron Guidry, Al Oliver and Rusty Staub have been dropped.
Reggie Jackson insists in his new autobiography that he never disparaged Thurman Munson in an attention-grabbing Sport magazine report 36 years ago, a claim the author immediately denied.
Daily threats. Blaring headlines. Charges and countercharges.
They're proud, accomplished men. They worked together to build a World Series contender. It isn't working this year. Have they reached some kind of untenable spot in their relationship?
George Brett remembers sitting next to Frank White and Vida Blue in the dugout at Yankee Stadium, his ninth-inning home run having just given the Kansas City Royals the lead.
When D.C. Lottery operator Emmanuel S. Bailey heard that he had been besmirched in connection with convicted felon and former D.C. Council member Michael A. Brown, he knew who to call.
Lawyers for a former Marine convicted of shooting at the Pentagon and other military targets want a judge to review a plea deal calling for a 25-year prison sentence now that their client has been diagnosed as schizophrenic.
Lee MacPhail, the longtime baseball executive who ruled in the celebrated Pine Tar case and later became part of the only father-son Hall of Fame pairing, has died. He was 95.

The House prolonged its three-year ethics investigation of one California Democrat while officially voting to reprimand and fine another.
A contingent of 68 House Democrats is demanding more answers from the Ethics Committee about its decisions to move forward with the 2-year-old case against Rep. Maxine Waters and to dismiss the California Democrat's argument that her due process rights were violated.
An outside counsel hired by the House Ethics Committee to resolve allegations of prosecutorial misconduct in a 2-year-old conflict of interest case against Rep. Maxine Waters has concluded that the California Democrat's due process rights have not been violated and the case against her will proceed.
Helmet tossing and bat banging have become all the rage, it seems. Yet suspended Toronto infielder Brett Lawrie and injured Washington teen phenom Bryce Harper still have a long way to go before hitting our list of baseball's wildest rants and raves.
Three men seemingly out of pop culture time, they come to us clean-cut and edge-free, dripping with sincerity, owing more to Christopher Reeve's straight-arrow Man of Steel than to Christian Bale's brooding Dark Knight. Fashionable as George Will and as ironic as Ward Cleaver, they're the kind of characters former New York Yankees manager Billy Martin derided as "milkshake drinkers."
By the end of the week, Martin had uttered the famous line about Jackson and Steinbrenner, "one's a born liar, the other's convicted," and the first of his five terms as Yankees manager ended the next day.
