Ok. My memory is admittedly bad and perhaps colored by rooting for my team.
I can't recall the Hamels situation exactly, but purpose pitches are part of the game. Generally these involve owning the plate and strike zone. Chin pitches high and tight are fine. Guys will get hit and that is, or was, part of the game. But throwing behind batters has always been off limits and I'd be surprised if I was encouraging that in any game situation.

Amusing, what a scumbag....

According to a report by CBS' 60 Minutes, Alex Rodriguez's representatives leaked the names of Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun and one of Rodriguez's own teammates -- Yankee catcher Francisco Cervelli -- to the media as the Biogenesis doping scandal unfolded last winter and spring.

Tell Rose to make room, he will soon have company.

I took my shoes off and tried to figure this one out How can they count Ichiro Suzuki's total career hits when in 2000 he was Rookie of the Year ?

This is my official Yankees RIP post.

Here's the yankee killer, a .250 hitter



It's actually been a surprisingly entertaining 2nd half of the season, but both the Yanks and Mets will finish off near (edit: rather moving *towards*) their pre-season predicted place!

I had the Mets at a dismal 56 wins, and the Yanks around 80. Both are beating those numbers, but not by too much

If the Yankees didn't get swept home and away by the Mets they would still be in contention. As soon as that happened I knew they were done for the year.

My new team are the Pittsburgh Pirates!

But another team setting new lows:

Astros Break Another Record: A 0.0 TV Rating

By JULIE TAKAHASHI, SportsRadio 610


(Photo Credit: Thomas B. Shea/Getty Images)

Houston (CBS Houston)- The Houston Astros keep breaking records for the wrong reasons.
This past Sunday according to Nielson ratings, the Astros and Indians game drew a rating of 0.0 in the greater Houston area.
ZERO-POINT-ZERO
The Houston Chronicle explains that it doesn?t necessarily mean that there wasn?t one person who tuned in, it just means that not a single, solitary Nielsen household tuned in to watch the Astros.
?There are a couple of asterisks involved here, of course,? the Houston Chronicle explained. ?For one thing, Nielsen persists with the statistically supportable but still head-shaking concept that it can measure what millions of television viewers are watching by monitoring the behavior of hundreds.?
So what was it?
  • The Houston Texans were playing at the same time.
  • The Houston Astros were handed their ninth consecutive loss and their 105th defeat of the year.
  • The games are only seen on CSN Houston.
The Astros pulled a 0.04 rating during the weekend of Alabama vs. Texas A&M and the Texans first home game.
Whatever the reason might be you can?t say today that the Astros aren?t being talked-about nationally.

Respect comes in the form of rooting for your Division team once you are beat.

Charlie Batch and the Steelers beat the Ravens last year, Ravens barely won the game in the Steel City.

Twice now this year Tampa Bay has shown serious disrespect after opposing player has been injured during play on field.

GO RED SOX!!!!!

As a Mets fan I went with the Pirates. I could never be an American League baseball fan. The (well, he can always) DH.
