If Philip Seymour Hoffman were still alive would play the role of Clint Hurdle in Money Ball 2, Pirate Boogaloo?

The timely hitting also takes some pressure off the pitching staff.

I know many pitchers come back even better after this surgery but that silver lining is hard to see in this black cloud right now.

The 2006 Final Four was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw the title of the entry.  Not only should George Mason be given a break, it should be pointed out that their game was at least competitive for most of the first half.  The other two games were DOA.

Last year we dropped two out of three to the Cubs to start the season so we are already off to a better start.

The biggest shock is there are no Redskins on the list.

The 80s was my decade and I had lots of great times, but you can't go back.

Its amazing how long a series can live off of a couple of outstanding seasons.  Of the series that I have liked that lasted more than five seasons I don't think I stayed with any of them until the end.  Whenever I see a random episode from season after I bailed it will always reinforce why I stopped watching.

You use the term "professional"  I don't think it means what you think it means.  It is not professional to keep pushing on the issue when he actually address it in his response the first time he's asked but then says he would prefer to focus on the victory and what it meant to him and the team.

I almost skipped clicking on the link but went ahead anyway.  I was expecting way worse.  Athletes have been getting this type of crap from drunk fans since the advent of sports.  Howard Stern was saying close to the same thing when he was on terrestrial radio (he prayed on air for a guy to get cancer and he talked about wanting to fist one of his competitors).  That doesn't excuse it, but when you make it sound like homicide and it turns outs to be assault and battery it actually diminishes people's perception of the seriousness of the lesser crime.

Here is a title that could be used on a regular basis:  "Video is posted on the net and the superlatives describing it are nowhere near accurate"

I hate Barry Bonds because he acted like an asshole while he was a Pirate.  If you do that you better come up in the playoffs and he didn’t.  Andy told him to move closer so he could make the throw home and he flipped him off.  If I was in the stands I’d flip him the bird and tell him Andy says, “Hi”.  The Pirates and you are bigger men than I and I applaud you for it.

What is being conveniently ignored is almost all these personalities are liberal and their politics will seep into their writings and their like minded hirings. Especially if they move off straight sports stories. That ignores 50% of the potential market.

Thankfully most fans are white so I won't be called a racist when say that they look like baboons at the zoo when they bang on the glass.

He is using hyperbole to make a point.  As UncleJoeLandis said, its people being bothered because they feel they are supposed to be bothered.  Will ESPN apologize if one of their talking heads says that a player, making millions, is being treated like a slave?

Love the purist pick of NFL Championship Sunday over the Super Bowl.  It is sad to see the decline of New Year's Day college football.

I don't know what's scarier, signing Pedro or not signing Pedro.


I thank my Yankee fan friends early and often for Russell.

At least there are scenarios in the pitching area.  First base looks to be a weakness again.  Still a little about Pedro Alvarez and whether he will hit 30+ HR this year.
