Someone Please Remind Why the World Baseball Classic Exists

You already got a taste of what a fraud I think the World Baseball Classic is based on my criticism of ESPN for continuing to use A-Rod to promote the WBC in commercials. In that vain, I’m still wondering what the point of this entire event is. Surely I understand that the U.S. doesn’t send…Read More

Lack of Contract Had Manny Ramirez Freaking Out

David Ortiz, Ozzie Guillen Are on the Right Track with One-Year Bans

I used to be one of the biggest baseball fans around. This year, things will change. I’m tired of the steroids issue tainting the game and obscuring my enjoyment of it. I’ve had enough of seeing guys like J.C. Romero, Rafael Betancourt, and Guillermo Mota get busted and come back like nothing happened. I’d like…Read More
