Posted Monday December 30, 2013, About: Report: Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos on thin ice
For 50yearfan, I hope that the ice doesn't get any thicker. I live in Toronto, and I've seen more than enough ice to last a couple of years.
Posted Monday June 24, 2013, About: Verlander ineligible to pitch in ASG
50yearfan, the fans don't get the chance to vote for ASG pitchers. But who is on the roster in terms of pitchers and in terms of those not voted onto the rosters, are not determined solely by the ASG manager. They are chosen with the advice of the rest of the managers in the league, and with input from of the commissioner's office. Favoritism doesn't play nearly a big a part as you want to believe. Verlander is having a sub-par year, for him, and there are other pitchers in the AL who will be more than suitable for the task, and who will not have started on Sunday.
Posted Sunday June 09, 2013, About: Brandon McCarthy suffered seizure tied to head injury
williewilliejuan, there are many, many people who deal with this on a daily basis. For most of them, and this will likely include McCarthy, meds can and do keep the seizures from recurring. McCarthy will be dealing with the for the rest of his life, but it shouldn't make a difference in any part of his life. In fact, as long as his med(s) work so that this condition is stable, he will have no limitations, including no limits on driving.

Why would anyone in their right mind want to try to manage a group of men who, in back-to-back seasons, has turned on their manager. Trying to manage such a group is career suicide.
Posted Saturday October 06, 2012, About: What John Farrell would cost Boston
for TRUTH3.0. It's too bad, then that the precedent has been set, allowing a manager to be traded for a player. How do you think Piniella and Randy Winn were traded for one another after the 2002 season.

Nothing, absolutely nothing less than Pedroia, Buchholz and at least one top-flight minor league pitching prospect.
Posted Sunday September 23, 2012, About: 'Out of sorts' Josh Hamilton to miss Seattle series
DALEJR88FAN, after he signed with the Rays organization, Josh Hamilton was involved in a car accident, and hurt his back. He was in a great deal of pain, and was prescribed pain meds for it. What he and his doctors may not have known at that time is that he has what is referred to as an "addictive" personality, meaning that his personality type is such that he is subject to addiction to any substance that can change mood, pain, etc. That lack of knowledge lead to his addiction. He has fought long and hard to overcome it, and despite his two relatively recent lapses, he's staying clean. So, it wasn't about starting to mess with drugs and alcohol. But he did end up, and not necessarily by any fault of his own, being addicted to pain meds.

This is a phenomenon that is observed, from time to time. This is not something that a doctor sets ot to do to anyone, but it happens nonetheless.
Posted Saturday September 25, 2010, About: Molina done for season in St. Louis
Why should a fan not be critical when it's necessary to do so? If "your team" is playing badly, what's wrong with saying so? Like it or not, calling someone out IS a part of rooting for that team. It simply says that you want your team to be better.

What's wrong with wanting your team to be better?
