Soup's Sports Grill a hit for ex-MLB pitcher Suppan

If you park behind Soup's Sports Grill on Ventura Boulevard and walk through the back entrance, one of the first things you'll see on the left wall is a collection of Jeff Suppan's baseball team photos from his West Hills Little League career. That's by design. The 39-year-old Suppan, the 2006 NLCS MVP who helped the St. Louis Cardinals win the World Series that same...

Sox 99 – September Surge

Boston’s late-August surge continued into September, as they swept three from the struggling Kansas City Royals and split a four-gamer with Seattle.

They broke open a 2-1 contest with 4 in the fifth on 3 hits and 2 errors, with Butch...

This Date In Royals History: May 19, 2000

St. Louis Cardinals have potential for 2014 to be 100-win season

Jeff Suppan Retires (Anyone Else Remember That Time He Outpitched Adam Wainwright?)

(Image: AP) When former Brewers pitcher Jeff Suppan announced his retirement today, the news probably did not prompt an outpouring of affection from Milwaukee fans.   Suppan is more likely to be remembered in the same company as Randy Wolf and Bill Hall – notable misfires in the otherwise agreeable tenure of general manager Doug Melvin.  When then-manager Ken Macha took...

5 Unheralded Brewers Complete Games of the Last Ten Years

(Image: Reuters) I had the pleasure of being at Kyle Lohse’s complete game against the Reds on Friday.  Since the Ron Roenicke has a reputation for not putting much emphasis on pitching CGs, it is noteworthy the Brewers will finish their disappointing 2013 season with at least three. Although it was a novel experience for those of us in attendance, Lohse’s CG will likely...

'Big Game' performs up to hype despite loss

This was something completely different, in a good way. Between 2000-2012, the Kansas City Royals used nine different Opening Day starters. Six times, that aforementioned starter worked fewer than six innings before getting the heave-ho. Five times, that aforementioned starter surrendered four runs or more. Between 2000-2012, the Royals Opening Day "aces" averaged just...

In response a fast-acting remedy has been administered,  which includes signing veteran free agent pitcher Kyle Lohse...

Milwaukee Brewers Sign Kyle Lohse … Or Should I Say Jeff Suppan 2.0?

“Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” ~George Santayana With the signing of Kyle Lohse to a $33 million contract, the Milwaukee Brewers have proven that they have not learned from the past. Now they may be doomed to repeat it. It’s a move that reeks of desperation as the young starters have underperformed this spring. But it reeks more because of the...

In a surprising turn of events, former Brewers pitcher Jeff Suppan is still trying to pitch in the major leagues. When the Brewers released Jeff Suppan in 2010 (Keyboard Cat, never forget) many wondered if that was the end of his baseball playing career, but he ended up pitching for the Cardinals that season. After that most of us assumed that he would retire to his California restaurant...

Daily Friar 12.10.12

It is known that the Padres are looking for starting pitching depth. Preferably they are looking for someone that can come cheap, or someone that they can get via trade that won’t take a lot to get. I understand the Padres philosophy of waiting for the right piece, but if they wait any longer there won’t be a right piece left. I for one am tired of minor league signings in hopes...

I’ve always been fond of autumn. Mother Nature is packing it in, so there’s no more mowing the lawn or weeding the garden.

When the Rangers were rolling into town I knew it wasn't going to be easy grabbing a win. Although the first game of the series we almost did give them a loss.
