Baseball

Way to Aim High, Omar Minaya

I understand the Mets had an absurd and unfortunate amount of injuries last season — to their key stars no less — and that rendered them uncompetitive in the division. But are you really telling me that Mets baseball has been reduced to the low expectations set forth by their own GM? In a comment…Read More

He Should Have Gone with the 4/26 Club

In one of the most laughable lawsuits I’ve come across, rapper Jay-Z is suing Red Sox DH David Ortiz for opening up a club in the Dominican Republic using the same name as Jay-Z’s chain nightclub, 40/40 Club.

Wrigley Field Ruined by ‘Upgrades’

As we all know, the Chicago Cubs have brand new owners this year — the Ricketts family. And boy, do they have big ideas for the Cubs and historic Wrigley Field. When I say big, I mean eight 19′ x 14′ photos of current players and manager Lou Piniella hanging outside of the ballpark right…Read More

Bud Selig: MLB Is Considering Adding Playoff Teams, Additional Wild Cards

Commissioner Bud Selig was on hand for the opening of Target Field in Minnesota Monday where the Twins hosted the Red Sox. He spent some time in ESPN’s broadcast booth to talk about many of the issues facing the game. Selig discussed the League’s drug testing policy, MLB’s efforts to get more African-Americans playing the…Read More
