Visualized: Mark McGwire and the 500 Club

Today I came across a mind boggling statistic; Mark McGwire is the only member of the 26 person 500 club with less than 2,000 hits. McGwire’s 1,626 hits are 460 less than the next closest player Harmon Killebrew. McGwire only played 16 seasons which is the lowest of the retired members of the 500 club. However, Albert Pujols just wrapped up his 14th season with 2,519 hits. McGwire’s...

Mark McGwire-Jose Canseco Beef is Very Much Alive, Heated and Not Ending Anytime Soon

Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco will not be vacationing in Cabo together anytime soon, or probably ever. The much-publicized non-relationship between the two former Oakland Athletics teammates is not repairing itself despite repeated attempts at reconciliation by Canseco. Unless you’re living under a rock, McGwire is still fussy after Canseco released his tell-all book in 2005,...

Mark McGwire Done With Jose Canseco, Drives Canseco To Twitter Meltdown

There once was a time when Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco were close friends. In fact, they were like brothers — or “Bash Brothers” as they were called in their days with the Oakland Athletics. Canseco then infamously accused McGwire of being a steroid user in Canseco’s 2005 book, allegations that helped bring  McGwire’s baseball world crashing down. McGwire eventually...

Jose Canseco Apologizes To Mark McGwire On Twitter, Spells His Name Wrong

Mark McGwire won’t forgive his former Oakland Athletic teammate Jose Canseco for writing that McGwire used performance-enhancing drugs in his book ‘Juiced’. “It’s too late.

Mark McGwire wants nothing to do with Jose Canseco

Former Oakland Athletics slugger Jose Canseco attempted to make good with his old team this past weekend. Canseco was on hand for the 25th anniversary of the A’s 1989 World Series team at O.co in Oakland on Saturday.  Mark McGwire, who couldn’t make it to the event because he is currently a coach with the Los Angeles Dodgers, isn’t having any of it.

A brief look at the Dodgers’ Erisbel Arruebarrena in the cage

Erisbel Arruebarrena’s might be able to hit, someday. (By: Dustin Nosler) Of course, everyone looks good in a batting cage, but I saw Erisbel Arruebarrena Sunday morning with Dodgers’ hitting coach Mark McGwire instructing him. It was a small sample size (two rounds of McGwire tossing him pitches underhand), but I liked what I saw. At first glance, Arruebarrena, soon-to-be-24...

A Tip Of The Hat To The Former A’s On The 2014 Hall Of Fame Ballot

Frank Thomas, Mark McGwire and Mike Piazza all passed through Oakland at some point in their illustrious careers. Can we all agree that a Hall of Fame selection process is a hot mess right now? There are a ton of worthy candidates but a dearth of available ballot slots. There’s an abundance of questionable voters and an utter lack of guidance on how they should handle players...
