A wee article on the walk up songs now so common across the bigs.

Bill James discusses Dwight Evans HoF-ability, gives me a sad


I liked Dwight Evans. I think it's okay to include him in the discussion for HoF. That said, thisThat is a terribly developed and terribly written article. Some nits: If a premise of your argument is "Cesar Cedeno is included in the discussion for Hall of Fame candidacy", then you are set on establishing quite a low bar to begin with. Worse, if you need to fricking include Al Cowens as a standard for comparison because he had one nice year where four people thought he was worthy of MVP… Discussing "fine" players (Burroughs, Cedeno, [I don’t think Cowens, in the argument for HoF, qualifies as even a "fine" player]) as benchmarks for "better than them, so maybe hall of fame good" (Dwight Evans) is a fallacy. I don’t have the list handy, but I’d tell you which. It’s not a valid argument to say "he is better than this good guy, ergo hall of fame!" Why only seem to find the players born in 1951 as a seemingly important metric? Odd. Here’s the pissy part: Spend half the article talking about how good walks and OBP are (which I do agree), but only occasionally giving the stat out. Why not include those numbers in your frequent stat-graphs? Dwight Evans was a very good baseball player. But being very good isn’t good enough. Were he on Kansas City, we wouldn’t even be having this discussion. Also, if Winfield had been kept out of the Hall of Fame, I wouldn’t find it an injustice. Good player. I’d take him, but his numbers don’t scream HoF. Too many .260 type seasons, in my view, to make him a lock. He is in, and that's cool. I kinda think Parker feels more "HoF"-y, but he has the cocaine history. Even then, were he in, I'd say cool. But he's not, and I also say cool. I don't think it's an injustice. I think Dwight Evans being in wouldn't feel right. I do get why it's discussed. Anyway... thoughts?

Power Rankings, nearly as ubiquitous as Cincy Jungle Mock Drafts!


Unlike Peter King, this guy seems to actually look at the stuff before he types it. Lists Bengals as #10. Three AFC North in top 10. II don't know that I think the Giants should be #1, but I guess there is a bonus for actually being the champion of the prior season. (my argument being that the #1 should be the best team, which doesn't necessarily mean the champion)

A look back at what may be the most infamous bad snap in NFL history, and at long-snapper Trey Junkin's life since


To blame a collapse on one person... At least _HE_ acknowledges his part in his teams failure... (I'm looking at you, Kirkendaaaaaaaaaahhhhnnnnn!!!) ;)


CJ Survey of sorts: Favorite "never a bengal" football player

Listening to a podcast and the announcers are talking about Major Harris and Randall Cunningham. One of the announcers stated that Cunningham was his favorite NFL player who was never a Bengal. ...

Simpson flip-score, better than before


It's 100 times sweeter in super slo mo!

The fan who was body slammed by Harrison has been revisited


And it's tragic. He is sober and living in Cleveland. Terrible, terrible ending.

Report: Polamalu will play despite more "concussion-like" symptoms


I haven't yet seen the play, forgot to watch for video and can't see video at work, but I'm led to understand he "clearly" was knocked out for a moment on the field. This is a bad situation Pittsburgh has been doing. Mocking Roethlisberger for his concussion and pretending that Ward, (some DB last year), Polamalu (twice) don't have concussed symptoms and putting them right back out genuinely concerns me. It seems to be an organizational issue, given the repeated instances of pooh poohing the severity of it. I hope it doesn't bite the players in the backside and lead to permanent and long term damage. TroyP is one of my favorite players in the NFL, even though he bugs the shit out of me because he's so effing good. I can't express enough how tragic it would be if he ended up debilitated because of pressure to play. This would be his fourth, or fifth, concussion if all were reported honestly. Even if the Steelers weren't our opponent this week, I would still say this.

Baseball version of "The Conqueror"


The Conqueror was a kitschy John Wayne movie shot, apparently, too near a nuclear testing site. 90+ of the 220 people involved with the shooting died of cancer. The 1980 World Series between the KC Royals and the Phillies appears to have a similar weirdness: 5 of the players involved died not just "of cancer", but of brain cancers: Tug McGraw, Ken Brett, Dan Quisenberry, Johnny Oates, and John Vukovich. twilight zone

SweetSpot: Five trades that need to be made


SweetSpot blog over at ESPN says to trade Ryan Hanigan to the Rays for Kelly Shoppach and Alex Cobb. What say you?

Harmon Killebrew calling it quits


In a sad turn, Harmon Killebrew is conceding his fight with esophogeal cancer and moving into hospice. I wish him peace as he lives out the last of his days. 74 isn't a bad age to reach.

Nothing wrong with Five. Can I /ravenriley'd my own submission?
