    16 Votes…

    Well, Jim Ed got much closer–unfortunately, it was not close enough. Placing 2nd in the balloting by adding 46 votes and increasing 8.7%, Jim Rice finished at 392 votes and 72.2%–which is basically 16 votes shy of the 75% needed to get into the hall. The good news is that he still has another year […]

    WHAT a Cluster…

    Again I will say, Holy Buckets! Is this getting CRAZY or what? Roger got VERY cranky during his press conference yesterday, bitching out the press and anyone else within earshot.

    Still, very little…

    This is getting ridiculous… Since he no longer manages the Skanks, it took Joe Torre a bit longer to weigh in on the whole Mitchell Report/Roger Clemens brouhaha: “”You’re not going to get me in that jackpot…I’d rather just stay away from making any in-depth comment about the whole steroid-HGH thing. I’m very close to […]

    The 2nd Day of the 2008 Season…

    …and 43 days until Pitchers and Catchers report–and not fricken soon enough… Hopefully, now that baseball’s holiday hiatus is over, there will be more to talk about, cause there has been little or no news/info of any note in a LONG time… The big story (relatively speaking) right now–and very appropriate for this time of […]
