More smoke around Pujols time at Maple Woods

1

The rumor in KC has always been that Pujols juiced up at Maple Woods community college. More smoke around this now. This trainer was the baseball coach at MW in the 90's.

So Hillman definitely called for this one from the dugout...right?

Great spoof of announcers. Not sure how many of you guys have seen this, but it has become a viral hit. "I'm walkin here, I'm walkin here!"

Iowa State physicist writes a better formula to predict baseball success

He claims consistently scoring teams have a better record as compared with sporadically scoring teams. (with both sharing the same runs per game.) Could a next movement be to study a players std dev of a stat over time period of weeks or months? Would teams pay for consistency over streaky players?

Does anyone else remember these gems from the early 90's. I've been looking for these for years.

Taking Sides

So guys, I've been noticing that certain people seem to argue a lot. No matter what the subject there seems to be, a line in the sand is drawn and people seem to agree with the same group. I don't...

Ok....Help me watch the royals

We've all bitched and moaned about poor royals coverage in the past (especially in Iowa) but I want to resolve this issue (i want to watch games). Here is the cliffnotes version of past notes. 1...

"that's a bad omen." -me I was getting up out of my desk in my apartment today, when something happened which can only be thought of as a bad omen. I got out of the chair (i have a desk chair that sinks slightly when I sit, and rises as soon as I get up) and the arm was underneath the desk. Since the weight was no longer in the chair, the chair shut up shook my desk, and a bunch of things fell off the top. The only thing that broke was my Royals shot glass. It was a double shot too. :(

Recent mood seems to have shifted. Men, even smart men, who once had grand predictions have said they felt the 2009 team would be worse than the 2008 version. I vote for a recount, a January 2009, RCI. And this is in no way related to anything going on in DC.

Pretty ridiculous topic, I know, but who are your all-grit players. The picks can be arbitrarily based, and without logic, but I think it would be fun to see everyone's picks. Local 54, for those...

This shouldn't have to be repeated or even said, but yes natalie portman is hot. Cute, hot, pretty whatever your fetish attractive word is she fits. You would kill yourself if she was your pretty friend because that means you are just on the friends ladder and can't get off.

Royal Reduction and MLB.tv blackouts

As it has been stated, probably more than needed, the royals used to be popular, and now aren't so much. Well most of this has to do with the fact that they are not winning like they used to. But...

I'm not sure if any have seen this, but it is quite humorous.

Before this year I cannot remember a time when the Royals wore blue on the road. But they are this year and they are doing so a lot, especially of late. Has the team adopted a favorite jersey, are the starting pitchers continually choosing the blue

Before this year I cannot remember a time when the Royals wore blue on the road. But they are this year and they are doing so a lot, especially of late. Has the team adopted a favorite jersey, are the starting pitchers continually choosing the blue, or are they sticking to always wearing the alternate on game day? I'm not sure at all, but thought it was interesting to see the blue in all 4 games in NY. (I believe it was all four anyways)
