Today is Bill Veeck Day. It is the day that Paul Dickson’s biography of Bill Veeck is officially released, the day “Sport Shirt Bill” is back with us once again. Like a bad penny, he has returned. It is something he himself said often, as he bounced between Wrigley Field and Comiskey, forever part of […]

On 11-11-11 the Miami Marlins will be introduced to the baseball world…. Along with their new logo, uniforms, & stadium.     The above logo was leaked recently, and while it’s been refuted as anything but likely I still want to visit the ”what if.” Logan Morrison has publicly compared it to the monopoly logo, and […]

July 18, 2011 by · 7 Comments 

I can’t say for certain what it was, but sometime in early September, 2009, something seemed to click for Jose Bautista that hadn’t before. Prior to that time Bautista was at best an average utility man who was rapidly approaching 30 years of age. Drafted in the 20th round of the 2000 draft, he also […]

New Years, Hak-Ju Lee, & Resolutions

January 7, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

I like to kick off each season with a “Bucket List.” This list gets posted in my home office for the entirety of the season – sometimes I’ll even add to it as the season goes and as I find new adventures to fulfill. With the new year just beginning and watching everyone try to adhere to […]

December 4, 2010 by · 2 Comments 

It’s been hours now since the news of our beloved Chicago icon has hit the airwaves, and we’ve all dealt with the passing in various ways. When I first got the news, my initial thought was “I have to be at Wrigley. I have to be home.” I’ve spent the majority of today in thought […]

October 24, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

With the Yankees’ quest for a repeat championship crushed by a hungry and talented Rangers team, the Bronx Bombers face a long offseason of uncertainty. It’s amazing how many leaks can spring up in what was supposed to be a $213 million juggernaut. Unable to fend off the low-budget Rays for the division title, the […]

Tigers Brass Show Their Class

How could I not go? I told myself back in September when I attended the Ernie Harwell farewell/tribute game that this was going to be my formal goodbye to my childhood radio friend. It was a tearful and joyous day and I was at peace with myself and the fact that the voice of my […]

Remembering Steve Howe

March 26, 2010 by · 5 Comments 

The accident scene was so eerily similar to his reckless existence. Steven Roy Howe lay dead on a California highway with his late-model vehicle resting on top of him; a witness told cops that Howe’s truck simply drifted off the roadway. When I first read of the death of this once-promising athlete from Michigan, I […]

However, they miss a story here and there, so we’re glad to supplement their coverage with the following random thoughts. Michelle Damon has reportedly contacted Commissioner Selig and requested that Detroit be allowed to move its franchise to New Jersey. […]
