Yankee fans around the world will wake up early Wednesday, toddle down to the living room in their Doctor Dentons, and see what the Surgery Fairy left under the dead tree. Who knows? Maybe it'll be an Evan Longoria! Then again, it might be a lump of coal, or a Celerino Sanchez.This year, Arod turns 37. He has 647 home runs - 115 below Barry BigHead's career all-time record. Can he do it? Can he out-pariah the pariah?Obviously, this is all projection - and the further we go, it's like traveling beyond the solar system. But hey, strap yourself in, and let's go for a ride.This year (37): We assume the operation is a success, and they don't leave a bottle cap inside him. He returns in July - homers in his first game. (He always does.) He hits a few, then goes cold. He's streaky. Let's project 10 to 15 home runs - let's call it 13.He is now at 660 - tied with Willie Mays for fourth. (This is an issue, because landmark HRs cause delays.)2014 (38): This is h...

Barry Bonds For The Hall Of Fame, Part 3

Our final installment about Barry Bonds, and why he should, eventually, get into the Hall of Fame. I think it’s a little ridiculous that no one got voted in this year.  It was one of the most amazing ballots in years, steroids or not, and no one got in.  But this may be just the shock the Hall of Fame needs to do something about this and change things, or give a clearer direction...

Bobby V rips Hall of Fame voters

Former Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine lit into the baseball writers for failing to elect any players into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

No Sosa, no Bonds, no Clemens, no one inducted into baseball Hall of Fame

For only the eighth time in their annual elections and the first time since 1996, baseball writers have elected no player to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The 2013 ballot marked the first year of eligibility for several greats like Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa and Roger Clemens. Voters rejected the [...]

Mick Foley's wrestling road stories: losing an ear, meeting Barry Bonds and going to the Red Light District

Mick Foley is funny. If you're a wrestling fan, you know this. If you're not, read his New York Times best-selling autobiographies. The man has a gift for storytelling. The hardcore legend and soon-to-be WWE Hall of Famer didn't disappoint during four nights at Stanford and Sons Comedy Club -- right here, in Kansas City, Kansas (read my preview interview here). I attended...

Thoughts On The 2013 Hall of Fame Election

Like many baseball fans, I had been eagerly anticipating the results from this year’s National Baseball Hall of Fame election. This year’s ballot was polarizing, to say the least, as players such as Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens were eligible for induction for the first time. Clemens and Bonds were two of the greatest players the sport has ever seen, but they have strong ties...

How Bay Area sportswriters voted for the Baseball Hall of Fame

By now you’ve likely heard that no player was voted for induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame off the writers’ ballot for the first time in 17 years. The prime players snubbed were Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, both of whom were making their first appearances on the ballot. 569 ballots were cast in Wednesday’s nonsensical empty vote, which only makes the result that much...

Disappointed In Hall Balloting; Biggio Snubbed

I am not surprised at the voting numbers for Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa, but I am stunned at there being a total shutout and disappointed at the reasoning of some writers. For just the second time in four decades none of the candidates were elected, and that is wrong. Craig Biggio, who was on my ballot, had 3,000 hits, which had been an automatic ticket – save PED...

The Hall Will Be A Bit Emptier This Year

After days of speculating, today we found out that no player was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame for 2013. This has easily been the most controversial vote by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America (BWAA) since they were a part of the election process. Today shows us that trauma of the steroid era has clearly not healed.   The first page in baseball’s history...
