Fitocracy challenge - OT

Well, the very successful Spring Training Fitocracy Free for All Challenge has come and gone. I'm sure all of the contestants who competed were in the best shape of their lives. I thought I'd...


Ranger Drafts by GM

  I previously looked at the 31 top Ranger Draft picks, but, when looking at it, I also got interested in how productive the average drafts were, and how productive the Various Ranger GMs were.  ...


Ranger Runs Above Average - Positional players

I thought I'd take a small break from the all of the good fun tarring and feathering MY to put up a post.  I know we talk a lot about WAR here, but sometimes, it is good to see where the Ranger...


Top 31 Flavors of Ranger Draft Picks

Adam's recent tweets got me interested in the history of Rangers draft picks.   I was a little curious to see all the top picks over the history of the franchise.  Here are the 31 best Ranger Draft...


So who is left in Free agency?

Fairly slim Pickins.    None of the pitchers do all that much for me.  I'm intrigued by Ordonez mostly because of his ability vs. lefties. I also wouldn't mind Lee.  It wouldn't surprise me if we...


Jeter and Yanks to agree

3 years, up to 51 million with an unspecified option year. The Yankees and Derek Jeter will finalize a three-year deal today after hammering out the final details on a contract that will...


OT: Wade Phillips is fired

The ticket announced that Babe Lauffenberg and channel 11 are reporting that Wade has been fired and Jason Garrett is interim head coach.   h...



BELIEVE....this isn't supposed to be easy. Nothing this year has been. Whether on the field or off, every time things looked about set, unexpected problems arose. But in the end, the conclusion...


OT: BYU quits the Mountain West

http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/news?slug=ap-byu-independent   That's another blow to the Mountain West which really seems to be a stranger and stranger conference.  They are really spread...

Big 12 reneging on pledge to A&M?


So, as I figured, the dollars being thrown around in the Big 12 settlement issue sound like they were pulled out of Beebe's ass. I still don't know why A&M just doesn't go to the SEC.

I don't think this conference will last long because there is too much disparity between all the...


I don't think this conference will last long because there is too much disparity between all the teams, In the SEC, for instance, Vanderbilt makes as much money in the television contract as Florida. Everybody is good with it. Everybody is on the same page. Everyone gets the same votes. That doesn't happen here in the Big 12. We have some teams that get a little bit more money and have a little bit more stroke than some of the other teams. And when that happens, you're gonna have teams looking for better avenues to leave and reasons to leave.

DRays have decision on Blalock


Sounds like Hankles may want to try to shop around as a FA again.


Nelson Cruz to the DL

Per the Ticket's Bob Sturm   He Referenced TR Sullivan   The Rangers have placed outfielder Nelson Cruz on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring. They have recalled outfielder Graig...


OT: Why the Cowboys are in Arlington

Laura Miller runs off the Cowboys. Dallas has never been particularly friendly to sports franchises.  I think Ron Kirk helped the Mavs, but before and after him, the city weren't interested in...


Rank the Baseball Commissioners

With Richard Justice crowning Bud Selig the best commissioner ever, I figured it would be a good time to poll the LSB faithful to see if they agree.  Feel free to throw in any comments on any of...

OT: Someone needs to apologize to Dr. Atkins


Here are the major findings of the meta-analysis: -total fat intake is not associated with coronary heart disease -higher trans fatty acid intake is linked to higher heart deaths and events -saturated fatty acid consumption is not linked to heart deaths or events -data on heart disease and polyunsaturated fatty acids are "inconsistent and unreliable" -monunsaturated fatty acid intake was not associated with heart disease -higher omega-3 fatty acid consumption (from fish oils or actual fish) is linked to lower risk of heart disease, although the data are not quite as strong as the authors would prefer


Kinsler to start his 2 day rehab start.

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=4392571   I really want to know why they have already decided its a 2 day assignment.  That seems fairly ridiculous to me in light of Hamilton's early...

Jon Stewart on Lenny Dykstra


I love listening to Dykstra talk, and thinking that folks actually gave him money.

Bionic Monkeys!


Wait til these guys start flinging poop at AJM


47-36 Ranger Win Postgame thread

Huge win for the Rangers.  The Rangers give Nellie and Ian and Salty the night off, and still crush the Angels with the help of a white Hot Andruw Jones (Ranger OPS leader and person who would be...


Milton Bradley Drama

Milton apparently threw his helmet after he flied out in his AB in the 6th, and broke a water cooler.  Pinella benched him, and there were words.  They interviewed Pinella and he still seemed a...


The Three True Outcomes of Chris Davis.

After watching Chris Davis put together some great three true outcomes games (games in which the hitter keeps the ball out of play all night long), lately, I was wondering how far advanced he was...


OT: Newspapers die a little more - Part 2

The NHL, are you shitting me?
