The High Cost of Steroids in Major League Baseball

Mon, 31 Aug 2009 16:56:11 -0700

With new revelations about steroid use in baseball, the subject of the Hall of Fame inductions is once again being debated. Did David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez lose any hope of one day being inducted into Cooperstown? Did the fact that they tested positive for steroids in 2004 change the way the public and sportswriter's view them?

The innocence and beauty of America's pastoral game took another dark turn, when it was leaked that one of the game's best players, Alex Rodriguez, tested positive for performance enhancing drugs.

FemmeFan Weekly: Series Fans' Schizophrenia

Fri, 31 Oct 2008 12:21:14 -0700

Never, ever, has the World Series been stopped due to inclement weather. Never, ever, has the game been resumed three days later. Forget the game for now, forget the end of the Phillies drought, forget the end of the Rays' Cinderella season, forget the big bats and fielding. Forget the fact that the game was called only after the Rays tied the game in the sixth inning.

MLB Roundup: Payroll Stupidity is Ruining the Game

Wed, 16 Jul 2008 19:27:40 -0700

Richie Sexson of the woeful Seattle Mariners is simply the latest example of the silliness of Major League Baseball's love affair with high-priced superstars whose production is pathetic

Thinking Out Loud: Going To Hell In a Handbasket

Mon, 2 Jun 2008 13:38:31 -0700

Almost a month ago I penned a piece about the entertainment at Tropicana Field - (Rays Missing a Beat on In-house Fun) - and how the departure of John Franzone, aka John the Maestro, has left a huge void inside the stadium.
Having been inside the House of the Tilted Roof this entire homestand, there has been something else that has been gnawing at me but I just couldn't put my finger on it until Sunday's homestand finale with the White Sox.

The 2008 Major League Baseball season is officially underway, and it is ironic that an obscure statistician from Kansas is making the news, one who was ridiculed for many years. Today he is a chief decision-maker for the world champion Boston Red Sox, having gaining notoriety throughout professional sports - and acceptance to his metrics continues to grow

Hurdles Aside, How Will Rays' Stadium Plan Really Affect St. Petersburg

Mon, 3 Dec 2007 23:11:10 -0700

There are logistical problems. Parking problems. Ecological problems. IRL problems. Government problems. Voter problems. Problem problems.
Other than that, the Rays new stadium idea is fabulous.
Or is it?
Part of the $1 billion project depends not only the sale of the stadium and land where Tropicana Field currently rests to pay off roughly $100 million in bonds, but who will develop it and how.
Much is being made about what I call "Bays Ball Stadium" and how much it would mean by adding it to the downtown landscape. It is a beautiful if not breathtaking plan, worthy of waterfront placement - in say, North or South Carolina.

Could It Be Back to the Future in Rays Quest For New Downtown Stadium?

Sat, 17 Nov 2007 20:44:43 -0700

It was an accident. Really.
I just had a chunk of my house painted recently and as I was trying to reconstruct the displays I had from the early days of the Devil Rays, I had something in a pile I wanted to frame but never got around to it.
When I came to St. Petersburg a month before the Expansion Draft in November 1997, I wanted to learn as much as I could about how my marvelous new city finally got their hands on a major league baseball club.

The Heckler: Jim Hendry Interview - 2007

Tue, 9 Oct 2007 05:43:41 -0700

With the Cubs on the brink of the playoffs, Jim Hendry wears the hero crown again. But the last two years, with the team a big disappointment, he wore the goat horns, asking why he didn't do more to improve the club. In this interview, he addresses the issue if his hands were tied by Andy MacPhail, just what Alfonso Soriano was promised when the Cubs signed him, his thoughts on Lou Piniella, and what player surprised him this year.

A Fan Speaks Out: Inflated Numbers and an Inflated Head

Tue, 7 Aug 2007 01:45:11 -0700

This is my response to Jesse Jackson writing into the Chicago Tribune and saying that Barry Bonds’ achievements should not be minimized
In last weeks Other Views column, the Rev. Jesse Jackson conveniently failed to examine all of the facts before asking the readers to pay homage to the feat Barry Bonds is about to accomplish. He constantly referred to the pre-1947 era, but Bonds is about to pass Hank Aaron’s record, not Babe Ruth...
