At midnight tonight, the spending spree known as baseball’s free agency period commences. It is an annual rite of fall, when all major league teams re-assess their current rosters, consider their financial conditions, and determine if any of the available players on this year’s meat marke… Read full post »
“With a heavy heart, she sells Obama letter to pay the bills”, read the headline over a story from yesterday’s newspaper. Originally reported by the Detroit Free Press, the article chronicled the tale of Jennifer Cline, 27, of Monroe, Michigan. Ms. Cline had written to the President/… Read full post »
“Adios Pelota” – with the score tied at zero in the seventh inning of last night’s World Series Game 5, Edgar Renteria strode to the plate with a chance to win the championship for his team. Again. And with one swing of his bat, the Barranquilla, Colombia native blasted a home/… Read full post »
Tonight, if the Giants beat the Rangers in World Series Game 1, it will provide an unusual symmetry between baseball and football, because such a triumph would be the second victory by a team called the "Giants" over a team from the Dallas-Arlington, Texas are… Read full post »
The evening looked quite hectic for the Wolfenson clan that day,The youngest one had art class, and there were two soccer games to play.

The pivotal moment in last night’s ALCS game, the moment that ensured the Yankees an early ticket home to the Bronx for the off-season, was when manger Joe Girardi strode to the moment in the wake of Vlad/… Read full post »
It's the seventh-inning stretch of the Yankees-Rangers game. A woman is singing "God Bless America", her voice resonating through the Ballpark at Arlington, and the presumption is that there are at least two more innings of baseball to play tonight.
But why even bother? The game is over. Indisputably… Read full post »
That will be further magnified when either AJ Burnett or Javier Vasquez trots out to start a game, which will be tantamount to the Bronx Bombers waving the white flag in surrender.
Apparently Roy Halladay isn’t perfect. He, and his juggernaut of a team, can seemingly be beaten. They can be defeated, it appears, by a Florida castoff named Cody Ross, who allegedly touched Doc for two home runs in Game 1 of the NLCS, leading the Giants to victory. I use words… Read full post »
Dear Mr. Girardi:
I presume that you watched the Rangers-Rays game last night. I assume that you watched Cliff Lee continue his run of post-season success, no doubt having at least a couple of flashbacks to the way that he dominated the Yankees in last year’s World Series. And now you… Read full post »

Today is October 10, 2010. To numerologists, the date is 10/10/10, a special date that can take place only once a century. What better time, therefore, to recall and celebrate three special people, each of whom/… Read full post »
Baseball’s run of great pitching continued last night, as the playoffs featured a freakishly amazing performance and saw two teams, riding stellar performances from their starting pitchers, take commanding leads over their hapless adversaries. Recall that the previ… Read full post »
Last night, three of baseball’s aces, members of its current quartet of best pitchers, put their arms on display for the world to see. All three emerged victorious, although they took differing paths to the same eventual result. And rather than being termed “the good, the bad, and the ugl… Read full post »
Tonight, four American League teams begin their battles to determine who will be offered up as sacrificial lambs to the juggernaut that is the Philly Phillies. My friend and Phillies’ Phanatic AtHomePilgrim has requested that I match his National League preview wit… Read full post »

We all take for granted that other OS writers read our posts. Some of us question, however, whether outsiders peruse our writings, and, more importantly, whether the people about whom we write ever come across our pages. Well, wonder no more.

Through the miracles of modern science, there is a blood test that can now detect Human Growth Hormone (HGH). The real question appears to be whether or not there is a HGH testing procedure that won’t harm the delicate arms of major league baseball players.
HGH testing has been instituted in… Read full post »
The Marx Brothers. The Three Stooges. Lenny Bruce. Richard Pryor. George Carlin. Jerry Seinfeld. All were considered, at some point in their careers, as the funniest men in the United States. But who holds this distinction today? The question is, of course, open to debate.

This morning started out with fun, an All-Star showdown between the AL and NL (me and Pilgrim). But the morning has turned somber with the news that George Steinbrenner, principal owner of the Yankees, has died at the age of 80. Love him or hate him, all must agree that "The… Read full post »
As my good friend and NL (well, Phillies) lover AtHomePilgrim has already posted, he made the mistake of challenging me in an AL v. NL All-Star team contest. I have already taken a glance at his formidable lineup and the comments which already have my team going down to defeat. But… Read full post »

Manute Bol, one of the tallest players ever to tread the hardwood of the NBA, died today at the age of 47. At 7-feet-7-inches, Bol stood taller than any of his contemporaries, and, when paired with Washington teammate Spud Webb, towered over the diminutive guard by a full two feet.
