Edgar Martinez Didn’t See Steroids Rampant in Mariners’ Clubhouse

It’s been quite some time since I’ve mentioned Edgar Martinez’s name in any context. I’ve always liked the man; he was a fantastic hitter, and really made you believe there was a science to it.

Last we heard of Almonte, he was 19 and married to a 30-year-old hairdresser in NYC. He never got drafted…Read More

President Bush Rips on Himself, Red Sox

If approval ratings were based on how the President relates to athletic teams, the country would be demanding a third term for Dubya.
