Vin

Thursday, March 24th, 2005

There’s an absolutely wonderful piece over at Baseball Analysts by Eric Neel on Vin Scully. It captures the man and his work so perfectly.
I get an chance to listen to Vin here in LA on my way home from work sometimes (they simulcast his TV anouncing on the radio for the first […]

How can you lose an Orange Hummer?

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2005

So, apparently, someone stole Rodger Clemens’ Hummer. (Yes, there’s a joke or five in there somewhere, but I’ll leave that to Sloth or Dolan)
My favorite passage from the article -

At least he didn’t break it punching an electric fan in the clubhouse.
And I really hope […]

The two outfielders are some of the players using a device that is designed to improve a hitter’s ability to track the […]

Gammons on the Cubs

Saturday, March 19th, 2005

In his latest post, Gammons spends time looking at the makeup of the Cubs. The one thing I definitely agree with is this statement about Wood -
The worst thing that ever happened to him was the 20-strikeout game, because it made him into Dr. K
That game turned Wood into a superstar before he […]

Zambrano

Saturday, March 19th, 2005

Man, I love watching him pitch. He is so on today. Granted, it’s against the Brewers, but he is locating his pitches perfectly.
I would not be surprised if he were to have 20 wins and a no-hitter this season.
