Gregg Zaun = Mackey Sasser

After last night’s rain out I was watching highlights of other games and saw a flashback of something I haven’t seen since the late 80s/early 90s. In the game between the Brewers and Pirates Milwaukee catcher Gregg Zaun appeared to do his best Mackey Sasser impression by mis-throwing when he tried to return the ball […]



McGwire’s Admission Changes Nothing

Mark McGwire’s admission to steroid use yesterday did nothing but confirm the feelings I’ve had toward him for several years now. I always liked McGwire as a player despite the widely held beliefs that he was juicing. I was rooting for him in 1998 when he broke Roger Maris’ single season home run record. My […]



My Take on Baseball’s PED Issue

I was talking with a friend of mine over the weekend and the subject of David Ortiz and PEDs came up. This friend is a Yankee fan and he tried to spin the story as a situation that taints the Red Sox World Series win that broke the curse of the bambino. (Though I say […]



Andy Sonnanstine At The Bat

An interesting thing happened at yesterdays Tampa Bay Rays game against the Cleveland Indians. A lineup card error resulted in both Ben Zobrist and Evan Longoria being listed as third basemen. When the team took the field in the top of the first inning Zobrist was at third. Longoria was meant to be the DH. […]



Manny Suspended for PEDs

According to the L.A. Times Dodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez has been suspended for 50 games for use of performance enhancing drugs. Scott Boras, Ramirez’s agent, told ESPN’s Peter Gammons that Ramirez was taking a prescribed drug for a medical condition as opposed to steroids. There is no word as to what substance Ramirez was taking. […]



Lastings Milledge: All Star? Let’s Make It Happen!

Someone in the Sons of Sam Horn forum called Wade Boggs Hair had an interesting idea: As good citizens of NatsTown, I think we need to get as many Natinals on the All-Star team as possible. Specifically, Lastings Milledge is on the NL All-Star ballot. He needs to make the team. Nothing would be more […]



Umpire Knocked Out

Every so often someone may kid about wanting to knock out an umpire. I don’t think this is what they had in mind. Kerwin Danley, the umpire in this video, should be alright. But this is scary, nonetheless.

First Injury of 2009 Preseason

The Mets suffered their first injury of the spring today when pitcher Sean Green, acquired as part of the J.J. Putz trade, left during the first inning of today’s exhibition opener after suffering a cut fingernail on his throwing hand.



ARod or ARoid?

The big baseball news over the weekend was the story about Alex Rodriguez having failed a steroids test in 2003. This story, though certainly big, is being blown out of proportion by the media. There has been speculation for several years about Rodriguez and whether his numbers were more ARod or ARoid. I don’t think […]
