Jonathan Papelbon: Straight Cash Homey

There’s no secret that I think very highly of Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon. But there’s one thing about him I don’t understand. Check out this head scratcher from Jonathan Papelbon: I’m here to get my fair share of money,” he said. “My main priority is to stay healthy and be able to make money,…Read More

College Boosters Have Nothing on Dice K’s Seibu Lions

Man, just when I thought our collegiate athletics system of hundred dollar handshakes was pretty jacked up, this story comes across my desk. Apparently in Japan, they recruit and reward their baseball players much younger than you could imagine…much younger. From the Boston Herald via my man Ben Maller: Daisuke Matsuzaka’s alma mater is one…Read More

Crash Was Josh Hancock’s Second Car Accident Last Week

End the speculation. It was definitely blood on the sock. No question about it. And I will dissect every aspect of it: First, the surgeon explains it all himself (but of course the skeptics would say he’s part of Schilling’s click). Second, an interview on Cold Pizza with a spokesman for the Hall of Fame,…Read More

Yankees Are In LAST Place

(Everyone quick, point your fingers and laugh at the Yankees) And yes, when you have the highest payroll in the game, by FAR, that is totally newsworthy.
