Over at ShysterBall (one of the most engaging, intelligent baseball-related blogs I have come across), Craig Calcaterra had what I think is a wonderful idea. And because it’s not stealing if you give credit, I am going to use it here. Here’s what Craig had to say: Thinking about which Giants jersey I’d get got… Read More »
Hallelujah. That’s all.
As a Dodger fan from the 80s, this is the greatest thing I have ever seen: I can’t believe they let Tom Niedenfuer be in the video. Weren’t they worried that he’d give up a homer to a 128-pound cameraman? (Thanks to my brother, Chris, for emailing me this link.)
This video is pretty awesome. I would love to do this someday.
So Shelley Duncan doesn’t think the Rays should be upset about his slide into second, which ignited a bench-clearing brawl. I could almost believe that, except that he actually refers to his slide as “play[ing] the game the right way.” Let’s see… Guess what, Shelley?

Ryan Howard, 2006 NL MVP. Chase Utley, future NL MVP. Jimmy Rollins, 2007 NL MVP. Pedro Feliz. That’s the Phillies’ infield as of this afternoon.

The Yankees and A-Rod just finalized their deal. I have a very bad feeling that the timing is not a complete coincidence; I wonder if A-Rod was motivated to get it done before the Mitchell Report comes out in 44 minutes. I really hope his name isn’t in there… UPDATE: A quick search of the… Read More »
Well, I slept on it. I fired off my “I don’t like this!” post around midnight last night, immediately after I heard of the Andruw Jones signing. It’s been 12 hours or so, and I’ve had time to think about it. Guess what? I still don’t like it. But I think I’ve decided my dislike… Read More »
What don’t I like? This. So the Dodgers signed Andruw Jones. Let’s list some pros and cons about this: PRO: It gets Juan Pierre and his range of a 300-pound legless sloth out of center field. CON: Unless the Dodgers can get some stupid team to take him, it puts Juan Pierre somewhere else in… Read More »
