Ken Griffey Jr. Quite the Penny Pincher

Baseball pranks certainly provide tremendous entertainment and help lighten the mood especially when your team’s struggling. One of my favorites was when Jarrod Washburn brought an ostrich into the Angels’ clubhouse and scared the daylights out of Ramon Ortiz. That was tremendous. But what Ken Griffey Jr. did was also fantastic. Apparently he enjoys creating…Read More

Your 2008 Orioles: Where Magic Happens

You have to figure that pretty much anything is fair game when Kevin Millar’s on your team. Mr. Cowboy Up was no doubt a part of this music video the Orioles filmed to promote the team for the upcoming season. An excellent find that Jimmy at SI passes along. Check out those boys sing: The…Read More

When your team is the worst in baseball — yes, the Padres are the worst team right now — what do you do to cope with the disappointment? You start a blog, of course. The man many of you affectionately know as the former Dodgers GM and Moneyball assistant to Billy Beane, Paul DePodesta, has…Read More

Hanley Ramirez Getting Paid by Marlins

It’s quite ironic. I was just having a baseball conversation with my Dad and he said that there aren’t many better bargains out there than what Albert Pujols is making from St. Louis. I countered quickly by asking, “what about Hanley Ramirez?” That was a quick conversation stopper. Unfortunately that will only answer the question…Read More
