A Little Advice for A-Rod

Alex Rodriguez Plans To Appeal Arbitrator’s Decision A-Rod, I have a little bit of unsolicited advice. Just say, “My bad.” You see, the American public is very forgiving.

Racists Allowed In Baseball’s Hall of Fame, But Not Players Suspected of PED Use

After the latest baseball Hall of Fame voting, I have to say that I find it funny and outright unacceptable that the voters allow racists into the Hall of Fame, yet want to pull the integrity card out when it comes to the steroid era. Cap Anson is a hall of famer and considered the game’s first superstar. Here […]

Cafardo: One-Year ‘Pillow Contract’ Could Be Best For Nelson Cruz

Several general managers believe that a one-year deal may be best for free agent outfielder Nelson Cruz as the general feeling among teams is that the 33-year old “needs to reestablish his value” says Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.
