Was Lee Mazzilli heard muttering as he left the Orioles complex after being fired, something like "I KNEW I shouldn’t have put that Stanozolol in the spaghetti sauce!" Probably not, but it would have been funny. That’s the substance Raf Palmeiro was busted for, according to a MLB leak.
Will Andruw Jones start getting some MVP talk? Is Pujols a gimme in a Barry-Free year?
How does Atlanta have such a stream of great young talent? Will nothing ever stop their run of division titles?
I think players ought to put 10% of their money into a pool, and let fans give out local awards. That would reward the little hustling guy, the guy who does the things that don’t show up in the boxscore.
And I think home field advantage in the playoffs ought to be rewarded to the best attendance. Give the fans something in return, and spur big ticket sales in pennant races.
How come these rich guys never buy us fans anything? A guy that makes $10 million a year makes over $61,000 a game. Have a freaking "Gary Sheffield Hot Dog Day". Sheffield buys the first 5000 hot dogs, give out coupons at the gate. I’m sick of athletes calling the newspapers because they gave out 20 turkeys to orphans on Thanksgiving. No bad on Gary Sheffield– he was just a random name I chose– but in general, you hear about Latino players supporting baseball in their countries a lot more than the American athletes giving back to our communities.
Is it me, or does the Atlanta Braves announcer Skip Carey sound like he is about to lapse into a Kermit the Frog voice?
Should we just rename the Cy Young award the Roger Clemens award? How much of a legend can one person become?
Why does anyone bother asking Barry Bonds when he will be back? Can’t you tell he’s playing with you?
Will Nomar come back and finish a great career, or will he go Don Mattingly on us?
Will Cincinnati and Colorado find their version of Roger Craig? The old vet taught EVERY pitcher on his staffs his split-finger fastball– which, along with a sinker, might actually allow some starter to break the 4.00 ERA barrier in these softball parks.
Are Marcus Giles Bobbleheads life-size?
Do Lou Pinella Bobbleheads turn red, and have the head pop off?
Does Ichiro like Styx’s old song "Mr. Roboto"? And would he karoake it in a team video?
And Lastly– Shouldn’t Ryan Church always start on Sundays?
