Gold Gloves Improving, Still Flawed

Still the best, Omar Vizquel got robbed It was nice to see that MLB voters finally awarded Gold Gloves to first-time winners rather than just lazily passing the honor onto incumbents as is the annual trend. What bugs me most about the Gold Glove is that it often goes to a player who is well-known…Read More

Aha! Jose Guillen Was Roid-Raging!

As long time readers of the site well know, Jose Guillen is only second to Barry Bonds when it comes to baseball players I dislike. Matter of fact, I’m not even sure that he is second, and if so, he’s not far behind. Especially given light of this news from Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams…Read More

Yesterday I posted the news at FanHouse that Mike Cameron had been suspended 25 games for testing positive for a banned stimulant. In an interview with Double X Sports Radio in San Diego, Cameron insisted he wasn’t taking steroids.

Red Sox Are the Team of the Decade

In addition to river dancing in his spare time, Jonathan Papelbon also doubles as a proctologist. Hadn’t you heard? As for the Red Sox, though the Yankees have been more of a consistent winner in the decade, it is Boston, not the Yanks who have won the coveted World Series trophy. Two titles in four…Read More

Royals Sticking it to Their Fan(s)

I guess when you only finish 24 games below .500 in a season, it’s cause for celebration. And what better way to say thanks to your faithful stadium-goers than by sticking it to them. That must be the mentality around Kansas City, where the Royals have decided to reward their fans by jacking up ticket…Read More

Angel Fans Everywhere, Raise a Pint!

There’s already a mini-discussion brewing between the Angels triumvirate of myself, Gilbert, and Ben over at Obscure Sports Quarterly on this topic, in case you want some mixed reaction. It is with great pleasure that I pass along the news that Bill Stoneman will be stepping down from his perch as Angels GM, and into…Read More
