Major League Baseball

As long as games exist so too will cheaters that target those games.  Taking a legislative approach to prevent cheating accomplishes a lot, but it comes with some inherent limitations. Primary among those limitations is that the system is necessarily a reactive mechanism much like the criminal court system in America.  MLB can educate, inform, [...]

Curious to see feedback on this, because the risk/reward calculation, practical considerations, and moral/legal implications must certainly be weighed differently by different people. Follow gr33nazn on Twitter for more about weighing thoughts…

MLB absolutely despises, detests, and hates Cardinal Nation.  Even that might not explain the completely irrational decision to schedule game 3 of the NLDS between the Cardinals and Nationals at 1:07 pm (ET) on Wednesday.  On MLB Network.  Maybe they are concerned about all the millions of baseball fans in the Czech Republic and Oman [...]

Requiem For A Puma

by on September 12, 2012 · 3 comments

If Lance Berkman‘s knee surgery indeed turns out to be the straw that broke the Big Puma’s back, then so be it.  Berkman can look back at 14 seasons of Major League Baseball with a lot of pride and likely few (if any) regrets.  Rather than soulfully mourn his career with some overly dramatic soliloquy, [...]

Take a close look at the above image.  It’s Josh Harrison of the Pirates propelling his body into catcher Yadier Molina.  Some will call it a clean baseball play.  Some may even call it a “scrappy”, “hard-nosed”, or “gritty” play.  Call it what you like.  I call it a gutless, bush league move made by [...]

Unless you live under a really nice rock and “watch” baseball games via some sports app that uses “in play” and “runs scored” to keep you updated, you have probably been subjected to MLB’s attempt to shove the Fan Cave down your throat.  If indeed you have been so fortunate as to avoid the forced [...]

With MLB nearing the end of the midsummer night’s bad dream, some members of Cardinal Nation have turned their respective attentions to ways to improve an already solid team enough to push it past the Reds and Pirates in the NL Central.  Some seem ready to consider just about anything, some want a big time [...]

Shyam Wow

by on May 16, 2012 · 0 comments

Major League Baseball has fired arbitrator Shyam Das after 13 years on the job.  His firing comes quickly on the heels of a vote that overturned the 100-game suspension of the Rockies’ AAA catcher, Eliezer Alfonzo.  Too bad the sack job comes several months too late to save baseball from 2 separate black eyes.  Alfonzo’s [...]
