Philadelphia-phillies
Let the Cubs fans go back to hating the Cardinals. Let the White Sox fans go back to hating the Twins. Let’s end this manufactured charade that the media spins into a so-called “rivalry.” In 2008, I attended a Chicago Cubs home game on a first date with a young woman who revealed during early in the game that she was “good friends” with Alfonso Soriano. I thought maybe she was just playing the “oh, look at what famous athletes are interested in me, doesn’t that really impress you?” card. For some odd reason, extremely insecure and very vapid women love to run this trick play against me; as if it would actually work? Sadly, this group of women actually includes some female “journalists” I know.

Cubs rumors: Alfonso Soriano more open to trade

With the Cubs not going anywhere, shouldn’t...

White Sox Adam Dunn is rather bad at his job

Adam Dunn, who plays the position of Designated Hitter is hitting .159 for the Chicago White Sox this season. Kind of Orwellian doublespeak, a “DH” hitting .159. To his credit, he is on pace to hit about 40 home runs, and drive in about 90 runs. But is that worth $15,000,000 a season? Especially when you consider that he doesn’t draw walks anymore. This is what Adam Dunn is...
