FIRST! Mike Jacobs Tests Positive For HGH


"A few weeks ago, in an attempt to overcome knee and back problems, I made the terrible decision to take H.G.H.," Jacobs said in the statement. "I immediately stopped a couple of days later after being tested. Taking it was one of the worst decisions I could have ever made, one for which I take full responsibility."

Complaining About WCIU


It appears from now on you all will be spared my incessant whining that I cannot see any games that are broadcast on WCIU. My friend clued me in that in the Urbana-Champaign area (starting this season I believe) WCIU games are broadcast on WCFN, which is channel 3 on cable. For those in Rockford, it looks like games would be on WTVO, which is also a member of something called MyNetworkTV, but I have not been able to verify it.

A Blow For Bonds?


Law professor Peter Keane on Judge Illston's ruling that players linked to BALCO will have their testimony allowed. "I think that hurts Bonds a lot, and I think it’s something the jury is going to find fairly important in determining that Bonds used steroids and other drugs," Keane said. "It targets in on Bonds in a way that shows the jury that he was using drugs and he knew he was using them. It’s another brick in the wall of the prosecution’s case."

Baseball In Ireland


Craig Calcaterra with a little info and a couple of links related to Irish baseball. Also, there is a documentary called "The Emerald Diamond" which is available from Netflix.

1960 World Series Game 7 Broadcast


Considered by some the greatest game ever, it will be broadcast for the first time in 50 years on Wednesday, December 15th at 7 PM central time on the MLB Network. Let me be the first to request a game thread.

Marvin Miller Misses Hall by One Vote


A Web site, ThanksMarvin.com, is filled with testimonials to Miller. The site, which was created about six months ago by Bob Locker, the former Chicago White Sox relief pitcher, also pushed Miller’s candidacy, although its original intent was to show gratitude to the labor leader. "All of professional sports was changed by what he did," Locker said in an interview Monday. "He ought to have a statue in front of the Baseball Hall of Fame — and every other sports hall of fame."

'Best Game Ever' Broadcast Found In Bing Crosby's Wine Cellar


He spotted two reels lying horizontally in gray canisters labeled "1960 World Series." They were stacked close to the ceiling with home movies and sports instructional films. An hour or so later, he found three others on other shelves. Intrigued, he screened the 16-millimeter film on a projector. It was Game 7, called by the Yankees’ Mel Allen and the Pirates’ Bob Prince — the complete NBC broadcast. The film had not degraded and has been transferred to DVD. Bader’s call to M.L.B. officials last spring initiated months of talks that have led to an agreement allowing the MLB Network to televise the game in December, and to wrap interviews and other programming around it, with Bob Costas as the host. M.L.B. also plans to sell DVDs of the game.

OT: Unwired: Mr. Barksdale Tells His Side of the Story


"If The Wire was the epitome of art imitating life, Unwired is life coming back on art with somewhat of a chip on its shoulder." (This quote is from the writer of the story, not Barksdale) also, there is a trailer for the dvd here.

Mark Teahen Has Won The Hutch Award


"The award is given annually to the Major League player who best exemplifies the honor, courage and dedication of the late pitcher and manager Fred Hutchinson on and off the field." Good for him.

Chip Caray: He Gone!


"Line drive. Base hit. Caught out there. The runner tags. Throw to the plate. On target. And in time! A double play!" Don't worry buddy, you won't be missed.

Chip Caray Is Terrible At What He Does


And Richard Sandomir doesn't mind pointing it out. And this is not the first time Mr. Sandomir's attention has been turned upon the old Chiperoo. This article, from 1 day shy of 2 years ago, is also wonderful. "No announcer is perfect. A mistake now and then is expected. The best ones realize that they’ve made errors and often do their best to fix them quickly......Then there is Chip Caray...." haha

Do You Think Hawk Was Suspended?

cito gaston confirms everyone's feelings about roger clemens


Though Gaston said he didn’t know of anything specific Clemens did to get him fired, he said Clemens did flaunt his influence with the club’s upper management, even asking Gaston if he wanted to keep his job as manager or lose it. He also challenged Gaston’s authority in front of the team, once questioning the manager’s refusal to pull Pat Hentgen from a game. Gaston says Clemens never brought those criticisms to his face, and he regrets not confronting him over it. "He wouldn’t (confront me). One of us would have had an ass whuppin’ that day," Gaston said. "It might have been me, but he still would have known I was there."
