    The All-Star Game–and Other Randomness…

    I like the Homer Run Derby; its something different than we are used to seeing; You never know what is going to happen (28 (!!) homers in Round 1 for Josh Hamilton, in 2008m and yet he lost to Justin Morneau in the finals–HELLO…) and with the exception of that complete tool Chris Berman and […]

    Book Review: Color Blind:
    The Forgotten Team That Broke Baseball’s
    Color Line, by Tom Dunkel

    Everyone knows the story of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier when he played 1st base for the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947.

    Uh, What the FRACK just happened here?

    I reallyREALLY hate Left Coast Games. On the weekends, I’ll admit, I don’t mind them as much, because I can stay up later, and actually watch more of the game, because all of the normal day to day stuff in my life is pretty much wrapped up by 9 nor 10… But during the week–they […]

    John Lackey…Ace???

    Holy…Buckets! My dislike for John Lackey has been deep and long standing–but it wasn’t always that way. I remember when he was a 24-year old rookie, winning game 7 of the 2002 World Series when he played with the Angels–and I always liked him when he was with that ballclub. I even liked him his […]
