Fan Jukes Four Security Guards

When a Philadelphia Phillies security guard Tasered a fan for running onto the field at Citizens Bank Park a couple of weeks ago, it apparently did little to strike fear into the hearts of prospective field-rushers.  Actually, a fan tried it again at the same ballpark the following night and was not Tasered, so maybe…Read More

Cashman Should Have Left Vazquez in the National League

Every general manager makes mistakes.  To Brian Cashman‘s credit, he has made very few over the years.  When he has, he hasn’t been shy about defending his manager and taking the blame for the New York Yankees’ struggles.  Fortunately for Cashman, Phil Hughes is currently the best starter in the American League with a 1.38…Read More

Lou Piniella Is Right: Cubs Need to Live Up to Their Salaries

Still, we’ve had some good nicknames including The Big Ticket,…Read More

Vin Scully Extra Saucy on Telecast

Dodgers announcer Vin Scully may be getting older and his time might be ticking, but he sure hasn’t lost his edge. Sure, we’ve seen him express disgust by scolding the media and giving them a history lesson, but I don’t remember Vinny getting off as good of a one-liner like the one he got off…Read More

Ken Griffey Jr.: Sleeping on the Job

One of the fun parts about sports is that you never know what they’re going to have in store for you. One day you can read about the Mariners firing their hitting coach and later that night they’re scoring eight runs to win the game. Another day you read about their Hall of Fame DH…Read More
