There were a couple of things I picked up on this past summer regarding this great game of baseball that need to be addressed. I was at a minor league game this past July 3 at Dutchess Stadium (which is like 15 minutes from my house). It was fireworks night, so I decided to take my kids to their first baseball game. I figured I would be able to sit and enjoy a game without […]
I thought you might find this interesting. According to CBS 58, suspended Milwaukee Brewers Outfielder Ryan Braun is calling Brewers season ticket holders to apologize. “Hey there’s a guy on the phone claiming to be Ryan Braun, it’s probably one of your buddies messing with you.” That’s exactly what Kelly’s Bleachers owner Pat Guenther thought Thursday afternoon. He picked up the phone thinking it’d be a joke. “Hey Pat this is Ryan Braun,” Guenther recalls. […]
Here is the official statement by Bud Selig on this afternoon’s announcement from MLB regarding the conclusion of their Biogenesis investigation. “Major League Baseball has worked diligently with the Players Association for more than a decade to make our Joint Drug Program the best in all of professional sports. I am proud of the comprehensive nature of our efforts – not only with regard to random testing, groundbreaking blood testing for human Growth Hormone and […]
Alex Rodriguez has remained intent on fighting whatever suspension Major League Baseball decides for the disgraced Yankee third baseman, and should he choose to do so, Bud Selig is prepared to use one of his most extreme powers as commissioner; the right to “take action to preserve the integrity of the game” reports the Daily News. By invoking that rarely used power — embodied in Article XI, Section A1b of the game’s collective bargaining agreement […]
Michael G. Baron of SNY posted this info-graphic on Twitter after the game last night. Seeing his numbers jump out like that next to Justin Upton is mind boggling to say the least… Upton is owed $9.75M for 2013 by the Braves, and will earn an additional $14.25M next season and $14.5M in 2015. Meanwhile, Byrd is being paid $700K for this season by the Mets. Coming off that 50 game suspension after testing positive for performance enhancing […]
With the recent developments of the Miami-based Biogenesis clinic that is at the core of a performance-enhancing drug scandal, the baseball world is abuzz over the possibility that some of the game’s most productive players potentially receiving severe penalties including 100-game suspensions. Clinic-founder Tony Bosch is reportedly in Major League Baseball’s corner now, and the league is hoping to have the evidence they will need to take a stand against those who allegedly purchased and used […]
ADD DESTROYING CRIMINAL EVIDENCE TO A-ROD’S RAP LIST? On Friday afternoon, Michael Schmidt of the New York Times broke the story and identified Alex Rodriguez as the player who allegedly purchased documents from a former employee of Biogenesis of America in an attempt to destroy evidence linking him to the anti-aging clinic’s distribution of performance-enhancing drugs. When the Miami New Times broke the story in January, I remember saying “this is the White Whale. This is the […]
Major League Baseball has Ryan Braun in their cross-hairs and are going to great lengths to nab him says Bob Nightengale of USA Today. They have contacted his friends and family, those he has done business with; anyone he is connected to. However according to this report, that is just the tip of the iceberg. There are names of over 90 baseball players who were found in the records of the Biogenesis Clinic, and MLB could use any […]
I once heard an interview where a player gave his estimation of how many players were on some sort of performance enhancing drug when he played in the early 2000s. He said it was ninety percent of the players—in other words, nine out of ten guys. Let that marinate for a second. I don’t remember who the player was, but I certainly believe that stat to be fairly accurate. It always made me wonder why […]
