Let the Record Be Unbroken

I guess everyone has forgotten about Nolan Ryan's 7 no hitters... That won't be touched... Not with the hitters these days and the way pitching is handled... Starters only plan to go 6 or 7 these days and probably throw harder at the beginning expecting to be done by the 7th and let the bullpen specialists take over..

A Real Display of Honesty Pays Off

Its getting scary when someone that does the honest thing and calls himself out gets so much press... Are we falling into that kind of society that doing what we older folks as kids were raised to do is a big story... I understand his embarrasement for getting so much attention... Bottom line people, he followed the rules... to some, they still mean something...

I have to say I am happy that he is getting to play some tournaments by doing the right thing... As they say, good things come to those who are honest? LOL....

Five Reasons to Watch the World Series

I personally am looking forward to watching this series... I can honestly say I haven't watch the past couple of years... Boring!!! Same teams in there... Watching the Rays win game 7 after letting Boston back in it in game 5 made me a fan... New blood, young talent and a payroll that doesn't blow off the top of the charts... Refreshing.. Thanks underdogs... You know we pull for you...

Best High School Football Stadiums

They should have taken a look at Round Rock Stadium that is home field for 2 of the 4 Round Rock Texas high schools share. Beautiful facility, the new turf, great seating, parking and it is equipped with a jumbo-tron screen for all those replays. It is also setup for soccer. The stadium seats 11,000.

Cowboys Acquire Roy Williams in Trade with Lions

Great move on the Cowboys part. Two number one receivers and a number two as the slot receiver. Not to mention one of the best tight ends in the league... Brad Johnson should be foaming at the mouth and defenses should be very nervous because they can't cover all of them.. You double the outside and Crayton and Whitten will eat them alive... We need the offense to stay on the field and the defense will take care of itself... Injuries hurt right now, but everyone goes through that stage... Williams will have a new passion for the game because he got out of a no win situation that has gone on for years... How can you do it every day when you know there is nothing to look forward to because of ownership and management.

Take your bags, sir?

My biggest question is, why isn't anybody talking to Victor Degrate about it... Apparently he may be the guy that people need to watch from now on... If he received the bags from the female that Bell gave the bags to and then Johnson gets them back empty... Hmmmm, doesn't take rocket science to figure out who to ask...

9 year old with a 40 mph fastball, gets the boot.

I agree the kid should be able to play, somewhere. I am in Texas and they have select baseball for all ages and they play almost year round. The thing that pops ups most in the story is that the defending champion team wanted him. Hmmm, wonder if this would have happened if he played for them. Some of the story is sketchy regarding the league and moving up. Does the league have teams at a higher level, or does he have to go to a different association to play? Some leagues have rules on kids being able to move up and play at a higher level. Thats where select ball comes in, better players at the same age...

Branded.

It just goes to show that bottom line, these guys are in it for the money... The Clippers made a move to make themselves playoff contenders by brining in Davis... I feel sorry for Davis because he probably signed a multi-year deal and will now be there without the support of Brand... You know when you get up in the 60 to 70 million range does 3 or 4 million mean that much? Most of us will never know...

Astros' Shawn Chacon Suspended After Fight with GM

I am an avid Astro's fan, but the bottom line is they are stinking it up pretty bad right now... I'm sure there are a lot of guys who want to explode right now... The tension is so thick you can cut it with a knife... And thats from the top down... The expectations are in the crapper... I don't think Cooper is the guy for them and over all it isn't a good situation for anybody... Other than Burkman, the players are not performing... The leadoff spot is a revolving door... You have to stick with someone and let them work through it... Both those guys were wrong... Unfortunately, Chacon is the one that will pay the heavy price...

A dazzling Manny being Manny moment

What a kid... A lot of people don't understand the guy, but he is out there having a blast playing a game... Yes they are high paid guys, but he plays it as a game and has fun... Way to go Manny... Thanks for showing people that it is a game....

Mets' Wagner calls out teammates for ducking media

Sounds like some guys need to take the bad with the good and they aren't. I have always liked Billy Wagner. I followed him with the Astros. If guys aren't stepping up when it is brought up internally, then throw them under the bus... You big money making guys that think you are above everyone. And then to try to make it a racist thing because it is some latin players... When are we going to give that crap a rest. We will never get rid of racism because to many people want to pull that card for any B.S. reason... Its all going into the crapper folks...

Pacman gives Dallas Cowboys a dual threat:

I would be willing to bet that Jerry Jones will cover his tail in a contract with PacMan... He will put in there that he will owe him nothing if he gets in trouble with the law and gets booted by the league (that is if he gets back in). It is a shame to read all the news about college and pro players getting in trouble... It appears that college and pro players have too much time and money on their hands or think they are above the law... It makes you wonder who raised these guys... The sad thing that is happening now is parents raising their kids to play sports first and get an education second... Thats what big money brings...

Does speed kill?

That was some interesting reading... Just goes to show that if you aren't throwing 97+ then it is all about location and movement...

School team hit for 66 runs in two innings

What makes me wonder is if your kid is getting shelled, don't most coaches make a pitching change... duh... Do something to shake things up... And 250 pitches, what the hell... Thats enough to know why the team isn't doing anything... The coach is clueless...

"Greg Maddux? I bet you could catch him with your eyes closed."

What a great article. Maddux is a class act... He used to drive me crazy when he played for the Braves because I am a diehard Astros fan... It was great to read about the things he knows regarding the game... I hope he leaves when he is ready and doesn't regret it...
