Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

I like my jokes like my women: easy. (Just kidding! About half of that statement.) There's nothing easier than a good fat joke, as generations of comedians dating back to Henry VIII have proven to us. So when Bartolo Colon was handed a 50-game suspension by Major League Baseball on Wednesday, ...

My Current Baseball Pet Peeves

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

If you ask me, it's been a terribly annoying week in baseball. And I'm not just saying that to sound like Andy Rooney. (I am, however, grooming my eyebrows in an effort to look like Andy Rooney). Something has happened every day so far this week that has raised my ire. ...
