Best Christmas Gift I Ever Got: Autograph Book Loaded With Hall Of Famers

  “Holy ****, look what I found.” That’s probably what was going through my head, I just can’t remember exactly because the years are starting to pass by and I was pretty young when I was going through a box at my great-grandmother’s place and happened upon a book that said “Autographs” on the cover. At the time, I was busting up the baseball card market, trying to...

Saluting The Veterans On Their Day

Jay Hanna Dean was born January 16th 1910 in Lucas, Arkansas. Before the Cardinals retired his number 17 from use. Before he was inducted into the baseball hall of fame. Before he won 30 games (!) in 1934 and led a staff immortalized as the ‘Gashouse Gang’, young Dean was just a kid that wanted to join the Army. Yes, kid. Dean was only 16, but he convinced Army recruiters that...

Sorry NOT SORRY, Tito and the Front Office, Serial, and a new Tradition: While We’re Waiting…

Not only have I never written a “While We’re Waiting…” before, but I haven’t much read them either.  This is likely (a) something I shouldn’t be admitting because (b) I have no reasonable excuse.  In the olden days, when WWW was just a collection of links, I felt fairly justified in my parsimonious clicking.  After all, by the time it came out each morning I’d...

Yes, the Giants are a dynasty

Out of the numerous somewhat undermining narratives that a World Series will produce, perhaps the biggest one from this particular Fall Classic is whether or not the San Francisco Giants are now a dynasty having won three titles in the last five seasons. The answer is yes. I almost want to end the article right there, but just to support that hard-to-come-up with theory, here...

Out of the numerous somewhat undermining narratives that a World Series will produce, perhaps the biggest one from this particular Fall Classic is whether or not the San Francisco Giants are now a dynasty having won three titles in the last five seasons. The answer is yes. Here’s a look at the teams who have done what the Giants have done: Philadelphia Athletics: 1910-1913 Boston...

Giants on verge of a somewhat dynasty

After 52 years without a title in San Francisco, the Giants are a win away from their third world championship in five years, which raises the question of whether or not this is a dynasty. The last National League team that win three titles in five years was the St. Louis Cardinals, 1942, 1944 and 1946, teams that were led by Stan Musial. For comparison’s sake, 1942 was Musial’s...

FOR SALE: This Creepy Mr. Peanut Costume

It’s no secret, you can find just about anything on eBay.

Consider these gems…Cy Young’s coffee pot (and pocket knife), a very freaky Mr. Met costume, Stan Musial’s wallet, Mickey Mantle’s music and Mike Trout’s Little...

Cardinals Fan Says Sexual Burger Commercial Made Grandma Cry

The world’s most pissed off Cardinals fan penned a letter (this should alert you that said fan is a little old school) to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch to rant about how the new and as always, deliciously raunchy Hardees/Carl’s Jr. ad was porn and scarred him/her and his family, including his 86-year-old mother… Seriously… Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and pornography.

Numbers Never Lie: Tony Gwynn’s career numbers will blow your mind

On Monday, the sports world mourned the loss of MLB great, Tony “Mr. Padre” Gwynn.  He died of cancer at the young age of 54.   Over the past 24 hours, much has been written and reported on Gwynn’s Hall of Fame career.  If you’re like me, and are familiar with Gwynn as a player, but limited in regard to what he contributed to the game from a statistical and historical...

Post Number 3,500

Here I go again showing my psychological bias about round numbers. Three-thousand and five-hundred posts is not much different than 3,501 or 3,499. But we are who we are. And I suppose it is a milestone of sorts. I have been at this since 2003, which is ancient for baseball blog sites. I rarely write short posts. Heck, even my Game Picks posts average between 750 to 850 words each...
