MLB

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, [...]

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 [...]

Burning Cole Hamels

by on May 7, 2012 · 8 comments

So Cole Hamels admitted to throwing at Bryce Harper (MLB Baby Jebus) and was suspended today by MLB for 5 games.  The range of complaints starts with Nationals’ GM Rizzo who called Hamels “fake tough” to everybody and their alien half-brother calling for a much longer suspension.  Naturally, some people out there will suggest that [...]

Ryan Braun just beat MLB’s system for preventing the use of performance enhancing drugs, and he does not lack for help in building his soapbox.  From that soapbox, Braun’s supporters are launching public relations attacks directed at everyone who is not #TeamBraun.  You either stand with them, or you obviously hate due process, apple pie, [...]

Let’s call a spade a spade for just once and admit that Bud Selig is after the Dodgers.  Sure, he’s going after the team under the guise that an ownership transfer is in the best interest of baseball.  That one is right up there with oceanfront property in Arizona and a bridge I’d like to [...]

The Sixth Man

by on January 26, 2011 · 2 comments

At several points during the 2010 season, the Cardinals either had a 6th starting pitcher on the roster, or they had an injured starting pitcher out for the year (or both).  It’s safe to say that they are a bit too familiar with the concept of replacing a starting pitcher or two during the season, [...]

I’ve got an idea, and you’ve got a stadium.  MLB has a Stand Up To Cancer campaign.  I’ve always wanted to get into the Guinness Book of World Records.  Do you see where this is going? I haven’t worked out all the details.  I’m an idea man – a big picture kind of guy, so [...]

Scratch.  Moolah.  Dough.  Coin.  Benjamins.  Paper.  Opulence.  Rich teams has it.  Poor teams want it.  In baseball, it’s all about revenue or revenue gap to be precise.  Revenue gap often translates to talent gap, or it at least translates to differing margins of error.  There are exceptions, and it’s technically possible to field a competitive team with [...]

Three series down, three wins. That should be a good thing, right? So why does it feel like the Cardinals took a step back by letting a third opportunity for a sweep fall by the wayside… To be honest with all three of our readers, I took a nap after watching the first two innings [...]

With the home team hosting the All-Star Game this season, I expected to experience a Renaissance of sorts. You see, the All-Star Game and its surrounding Festivities have not really captivated me for years. Sure, I saw the Ted Williams tribute a few years ago. I watched them close old Yankee Stadium down last season. [...]
