Hold Your Horses, Curt

Wednesday, March 25th, 2009

The thing I love about Curt Schilling is that he has lived up to his name better than any ballplayer since Home Run Baker. (I can't speak to how well Zip Zabel lived up to his name). If there's one thing Curt can do even better than pitching, it's shilling. And ...

The Rays’ Success Is Bad For Baseball

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

To put it into ultra-simplistic terms, our economy is screwed because people have been spending far too much money. People were given home loans they could not possibly pay back, thus killing several lending giants. A few years ago was the first time in a hell of a long time ...

Goodbye to Our Least Favorite Blowhard

Thursday, August 21st, 2008

Sorry we missed this, but something must be said to the apparently imminent loss of someone whose mouth will likely never stop running. News out of Boston a couple days ago is Curt Schilling may have thrown his last pitch in Major League Baseball. What a goddamn shame. This is a ...

Manny Knows How to Hit Baseballs Like Few Others

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

I'll keep this short because it's old news and everyone already knows Manny Ramirez hit his 500th home run Saturday night in Baltimore. As a matter of fact, he hit is 501st Sunday afternoon. Neat.But allow me to try and put a little perspective on this, if I may. Sure, ...

Jon Lester Proves Once Again the Sports World Revolves Around New England

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

It makes people around the Midwest sick, but it's pretty hard to complain about an East Coast bias when all the good stuff happens over there.New York Giants. Boston Celtics. New England Patriots. Boston Red Sox. Hockey (they only play that on the East Coast, right?). Clay Buchholz.And now ...

Mo Vaughn: A Stance and a Man Remembered

Monday, April 21st, 2008

Remember as a kid when you were out in the back yard and you did your best to impersonate your favorite baseball player at bat? Mark Grace was my man. But in some of my tee ball photos I clearly had a thing for Julio Franco's stance. Don't ask, I ...

Sawx and Yanks Duke It Out for Divine Favor

Monday, April 21st, 2008

It must have been a strange Sunday of conflicting emotions and tested convictions if you are both a Catholic and a Yankee fan.On the one hand, none other than the freakin' Pope himself held Mass from second base before a crowd of nearly 60,000 people at Yankee Stadium. That in ...

Joe Torre Is, Apparently, No Ron Gardenhire

Friday, March 28th, 2008

I just love it when the Wall Street Journal contributes something meaningful to the sports journalism world. It makes me feel warm, fuzzy and conservative. Which in turn makes me feel uncomfortable.Thanks to Baseball Musings, as good a baseball blog as there is, I found this interesting baseball manager grading ...
