WBC Injuries Not Worth It

Team USA already has four casualties from the Classic.

  • Chipper Jones – strained oblique
  • Dustin Pedroia – abdominal strain
  • Ryan Braun – lower rib cage
  • Matt Lindstrom – sore throwing shoulder

This is silly business, and why on earth are clubs agreeing to let its players participate???


Hot Dogg!

Some sweet sounding chin music from Bob  Howry

Some sweet sounding chin music from Bob Howry

There’s a place in sports for a little showboating now and then.

A fancy strut after a game-winning HR, some celebratory fist pumps after closing out a tough ninth inning…I’ve got no problem with that.

The catch is, knowing the appropriate time for such behavior.

One thing I appreciate about baseball is its unobstructed path to player retaliations.
