Dusty Baker’s Hiring a Race Issue for Reds Fans?

Word came out over the weekend that the Reds had hired Dusty Baker as their new manager. Apparently the news was not well-received by fans in Cincinnati. Tom Fornelli over at MLB FanHouse quotes someone from the Dayton Daily News who’s suggesting the negative fan reaction is the result of Baker’s race. Well, Cincinnati Reds…Read More

Roger Clemens: Terrible Investment

When the Yankees paid through the roof to sign Roger Clemens, I argued that the Red Sox should have out-bid them. My reasoning was simple: there weren’t many pitchers available to improve a struggling Yankees team, and locking up Roger Clemens could have been the nail in the coffin. I still stand by my reasoning,…Read More

Eric Wedge Is Mismanaging the ALDS

I asked the question at FanHouse today, should Eric Wedge go with C.C. Sabathia instead of Paul Byrd tonight in Game 4 of the ALDS, considering Joe Torre is bumping up his ace, Chien-Ming Wang? I really can’t find a reason why Wedge shouldn’t bring C.C. back early. Sure, if C.C.’s gassed and ineffective, then…Read More

Did Angels Skip Batting Practice?

Matt Watson tipped me off to Curt Schilling’s blog today, and frankly, I’m pretty peeved at what I’m reading. Schilling, who shutdown the Angels over seven scoreless innings in Game 3 Sunday, blogged that the Angels didn’t even take batting practice before what wound up being their last game of the season. I guarantee someone…Read More

Die, Danny Vinik, Die

I loathe you, Danny Vinik.  You are the anti-Steve Bartman, the next Jeffrey Maier. Danny Vinik ended the game for the Angels, making the play of the night for the Red Sox — outside of the Manny Ramirez walk off that’s headed to Canada — snagging that foul pop up from Jeff Mathis. At…Read More

What the **** Was Lou Thinking?

Let me go on record here: before the home run ball was served up, I was vehemently questioning why Lou Piniella, in the middle of a complete pitcher’s duel, screwed with the rhythm of the game and yanked his starter. I just couldn’t believe what he’d done. It was completely beyond me. There is no…Read More

Holliday Was Out; Baseball Needs Instant Replay

Though the Rockies season has been incredible, their celebration magnificent, and the momentum in their favor, they never actually won Monday night’s playoff game. Matt Holliday never touched home plate on his dive. In fact, Barrett successfully blocked the plate and tagged him out, producing what should have been an amazing double play. Not to…Read More

Delmon Young: Punk With an Attitude

Giving Edwin Encarnacion a run for his money, Delmon Young was yanked from the D-Rays game Saturday for lack of hustling. Manager Joe Maddon said Delmon was disrespecting the game. Delmon as you could imagine, did not take to the benching too happily: Young said he was treated unfairly because others have been doing the…Read More
