Man O Manischewitz Â we are swimming in baseball news today most of it negative of course but still with temps looking at the high 50â€™s in NYC today and players Â breaking down the gates to get into St Lonesome to work out spring is defintetly in the air.
Tomorrow night at 9PM we will have another edition of Pro Baseball Central and our guest will be Craig from the Florida Marlins blog FISH STRIPES. We will talk NL East, the lowdown on the new stadium and get an overview on the Marlins, plus we will have Mets news from the opening of camp and Iâ€™m sure Joe McDonald and I will touch on Alex Rodriguez and the effect his being outted has on the Highlanders, so join us at Pro Baseball Central tomorrow night at 9PM EST and as always you can join the debate by calling in at (646) 595-4462
Glad to see someone in the main stream call out Captain Craptastic to step up and show some leadership. Seriously Highlander fans, how bad is it when D-Wright shows more support for Alex Rodriguez than your field leader?Â This story doesnâ€™t go away until Jeter steps up and sticks by his teammate no matter how much it hurts him. Itâ€™s not always about you Diva errrrrrr I mean Derek,
Another reason I have a little â€œspringâ€ in my step today is while reading the NY Daily News with my Special K this morning, I saw the first Mets Notebook of the year by Adam Rubin. Â Ah when the ink stain wretches fly down to Florida that means spring is in the air.
They shoot horse donâ€™t they? Well maybe someone needs to put Titan Tom Glavine out of his misery. So much for wanting to be around wifey and the kids. Phony bastard!
LHP Joe Beimel is crying that no team will pay him big dough to pitch. Maybe itâ€™s because youâ€™re not worth a multi-million dollar salary to be a LOOGY. Â There are guys out there that can do as good if not better job for half the price. Iâ€™d love to get on board the collusion conspiracy train but the truth is ML front offices have smarten up and have stop over paying guys who are league average or below.
We pause now for this public safety announcement: Brady Anderson please report to the free clinic for testing!
Every spring there are a plethora of baseball books that are released but this one by Darryl Strawberry looks to be a winner.Â Just read this clip from PAGE SIX of the NY Post and you will know why some people are sad that Shea Stadium is being torn down:
Â Â Â Â Although he doesn’t name names, Strawberry relates how team members picked out girls from the stands for quickies. He once watched a pitcher march a frisky fan to a private room for oral sex: “I was jealous. When I saw her heading back to her seat, I gave her a sign. She smiled, turned right back around, and met me in that same little room . . . I had to be quick and run back out on the field.”
Another time, “I was in the clubhouse, having one last quickie with this cute little Florida girl. Charlie Samuels, the equipment manager, came in and caught us. He just stood there shaking his head while I finished up.”
Nik Kolidas of Kiners Korner is my hero. Not a good posting but a GREAT posting here.
