Peavy May Not Be Traded After All

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

ESPN's Buster Olney - you know, the guy we've called a moron several times - is now reporting that the San Diego Padres are prepared to keep 2007 Cy Young Award winner Jake Peavy if they can't get equal value in return for the right-hander. Um, duh. Kinda funny how we ...

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 ...

Screw Roger Clemens’ Feelings

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008

Roger Clemens spent last Sunday watching the Yankees' last game at their eponymous stadium from his home in Texas. He still didn't have power because of Hurricane Gustav and watched the game on a battery-powered television with his wife and mother. Then he displayed the understanding and caring we've come ...

MLB, NBA Rumor Time

Thursday, September 11th, 2008

Since we here at Rumors and Rants took the red pill, so to speak, we have yet to add anything to our nifty new "Rumors" tab. We decided it was time to change that, and give you the latest chatter going on in baseball and NBA as one season winds ...

Hideki Irabu is an Angry Drunk

Thursday, August 21st, 2008

Strong Men Also Cry

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

The greatest highlight of the hilariously lopsided Kyle Farnsworth for Pudge Rodriguez deal (think Pau Gasol for Kwame Brown) is that the man's man, Farnsworth, broke down in tears upon learning that he had been dealt to the Tigers. Unfortunately, I can't find video footage of this online, so I just ...

Joba-Watch 2: The Royals Have Seen Better

Monday, June 9th, 2008

So Joba Chamberlain made his second start of the season for the Yankees with similar mixed results to his first start. The last-ditch "savior" of the Yankees' mismanaged pitching staff threw 78 pitches in 4 2/3 innings and left with his team down 3-2. For his efforts, the home New ...

Joba’s First Start: That Went Well

Wednesday, June 4th, 2008

I can already hear the overreaction in New York. Seriously, if I listen close right now I can hear a bunch of crazed Yankees fans letting out collective OH MY GOD's. It's all very humorous to this laid back Midwestern guy.But hey, Joba Chamberlain's much-awaited first start in Yankee pinstripes ...
