We’re all so interested in the names being linked from the 2003 tests, but no one (besides me and a few other lawyer types) seems all that interested in who’s leaking the names. I wanna know, both as a lawyer — and for as much as complain about the legal system, I still hold my […]
David Ortiz hit a three run homer to put the Sox up on the A’s a few minutes ago. I’m assuming the crowd cheered.
Recently I saw a physician for a personal health issue. He gave me a medication, not a steroid, which he thought was okay to give me. Unfortunately, the medication was banned under our drug policy. Under the policy that mistake is now my responsibility. I have been advised not to say anything more for now. […]
So sayeth the Times: Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz, the sluggers who propelled the Boston Red Sox to end an 86-year World Series championship drought and to capture another title three years later, were among the roughly 100 Major League Baseball players to test positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003, according to lawyers with knowledge […]

No good can come of it, there’s a lot of consonants involved, and in the end, everyone’s reduced to a sort of mindless gibbering.
Cleveland Frowns does not like the Cliff Lee trade, but it’s for bigger picture reasons, not necessarily because of the return realized by Mark Shapiro: But it becomes harder and harder to care about how these trades pan out as it becomes easier and easier to be sure that any real star developed by the […]
As anyone who reads “And That Happened” on a regular basis knows, I’m a box score fetishist, and because of it, I’ve often thought of Henry Chadwick — the man credited as inventing the box score — as the feature’s patron saint. Except it’s not quite that clear that he did invent the box score. […]
Yankees 6, Rays 2: Via Facebook, I leaned that Jason from IIATMS and I made the almost simultaneous observation about Joba last night: that he clearly watched Mark Buehrle pitch last week and decided that he was going to be a fast worker too. He was pretty clunky looking at such a pace, but you […]
