When I was a kid, I’d range all over Tiger Stadium after a game collecting discarded All-Star ballots and make my family wait for me as I punched out Tiger names in dozens of the things before handing them to a kindly usher or dropping them into the big box at the top of the […]
MLBAM is launching its own online, opinion-based “tabloid” in May: MLB Advanced Media will formally announce today that in May it will debut what’s meant to be a online baseball newspaper featuring columnists, including NBC/MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann . . . . . . Bowman says the as-yet unnamed site will try to offer “a newspaper […]
And you think I’m kidding. UPDATE: title changed in an effort to cater to you spelling, grammar and clarity fascists.
One of the things about doing ATH each day is that, with the exception of Sunday games when I have a lot more time to read game stories and watch highlights, I have to pretty much talk about what’s in the box score. Which is fine, because I think the box score gets you an […]
I don’t know that collecting weird, trivial things is any more defensible when the Hall of Fame does it than when my neighbor does, but they’re doing it all the same. Balls, shoes, dirt in coffee cups, the whole deal.
Those of you who have been dying to put a nasally voice together with my bald, doughy visage and my obtuse written opinions are in for a treat. I’m going to be on BlogTalkRadio this afternoon at 1:35ish. It should be on the “GetSports” show which can be found at that link. If there’s a […]
I didn’t sleep so well last night, so I’m not quite as proud as a peacock today. Maybe proud as a bright cardinal. A pheasant at most: Miguel Cabrera isn’t going anywhere, but it might be fun to imagine he is. The Giants and the Diamondbacks are doing a good job marketing to ethnic minorities. […]
My second major in college was English and I’m usually able to pull themes and subtext out of most anything (even if the piece in question doesn’t have any), but this thing has me stumped. If anyone can tell me what the hell it’s about, I’d be most appreciative.
Look, when I die, there’s just one kind of favor I’ll ask of you: you can see that my grave is kept clean. Other people require more complicated things: Two years ago, when Dennis Mascari went to visit his father at a cemetery, he came up with an idea: Build an area for deceased Cubs […]
Indians 8, Royals 7: Sidney Ponson does pretty much what you’d expect him to, and that’s get blown up (3.1 IP, 8 H, 6 ER, 4 BB). And you can tell his attitude is just as good as ever. I watched this game, and as soon as he gave up the homer to Sizemore, he […]
