From The Accomplishment DepartmentBen

Tue, 26 Sep 2006 20:35:38 +0000

Joe Morgan graced ESPN’s SportsNation with his most idiotic chat of the season today. I’ll have more later, but enjoy this nugget. It’s quite an accomplishment. Cody (Minneapolis): Its possible that the Twins could have the AL Cy Young winner, the AL batting champ and the AL MVP. Has that ever happened before? SportsNation Joe […](image)

Is Clemens to blame for Astros’ struggles?Ben

Mon, 25 Sep 2006 21:25:28 +0000

The season is just going to end too soon for the Houston Astros. Down 7.5 games heading into a pivotal weekend series against the Cardinals, the Astros, powered by Roger Clemens’ potentially final home start in Houston, swept St. Louis to leave Deadspin’s Will Leitch cowering in the corner and Houston fans hoping and praying […](image)

New report praises, slams MLB for diversityBen

Sat, 22 Apr 2006 18:21:02 +0000

Attaining diversity in sports requires a tough balancing act, and writing about gender and race issues can be just as tough. But with today’s release of The 2005 Racial and Gender Report Card: Major League Baseball from the DeVos Sports Business Management Program at the University of Central Florida, I want to take this opportunity […](image)

Texas playing for more than just a divisionBen

Mon, 17 Apr 2006 05:22:02 +0000

Now that the Astros have reached the World Series, the Texas Rangers have inherited the title of Least Successful Expansion Era team. But that could change this year. If this team can stay competitive in the American League West through June, a 43-year-old savior could swoop in and deliver them elusive October success. In 1961, […](image)

Aaron’s 755 looks safe for nowBen

Tue, 11 Apr 2006 05:26:04 +0000

Henry Aaron has been largely silent as Barry Bonds zeroes in on his home run record. While he praised Selig for doing the right thing in appointing an investigation into steroids in baseball, he guardedly said he would congratulate Bonds if Barry were reach 756. “I wouldn’t say anything, just ‘God Bless You,'” Aaron said […](image)

Yankees’ poor start a case of bad luckBen

Mon, 10 Apr 2006 04:48:19 +0000

If someone told me a week ago that the Yankees, in their first six games, would score 35 runs, I would be ecstatic. Nearly six runs a game! That’s fantastic. If that same person told the Yankees, in those first six games, would only surrender 23 runs and just 17 earned runs for an ERA […](image)

Stadium deal a “win-win” for the Yanks and no one elseBen

Fri, 07 Apr 2006 05:24:59 +0000

The Yankees’ season may have started with a West Coast whimper, but back home, George Steinbrenner finally secured the elusive stadium deal he has always wanted. On Wednesday, the New York City Council overwhelming approved the Yankees’ construction plans for a new stadium just north of the current Yankee Stadium. With this vote, old historic […](image)

One week later, Selig rushing to Mitchell’s defenseBen

Thu, 06 Apr 2006 04:28:59 +0000

The Steroid Investigation/Mitchell Commission is less than one week old, but already, Bud Selig is rushing to the defense of his chosen investigator George Mitchell. Since naming Mitchell the lead on what many view as an important but symbolic attempt to clean up the sport, Selig has come under fire for appointing an insider to […](image)
