Gene Mauch,: journeyman big-league manager for 26 years, died Monday at 79. Few suffered through more on-field misery for so long than Mauch, who is best known for presiding over the Donnie Moore game in '86. He also had the honor of managing the expansion Expos for seven years. But in spite of the awful teams he skippered, Mauch cobbled together a respectable 1,902-2,037 record and is lauded by two generations of players as one of the game's preeminent strategists and teachers.

Ladies and gentlemen: meet your 2005 Washington Senators Nationals.

Is anyone else sick of Curt Schilling?: Tom Boswell is, in a passive-aggressive sort of way: "A nasty injury, gruesome enough to make for good melodrama, but medically insignificant enough to allow him to throw a baseball 92 mph... Pedro Martinez...has felt a bit slighted by Schilling's large, sometimes self-serving persona... Yankees Manager Joe Torre made it clear that he thought Schilling, consummate tough professional that he is, was not doing significantly more by pitching through the inconvenience of an ankle injury than many other players have done in postseason baseball, where countless players take the field held together by tape and a high pain threshold." An interesting perspective from outside the Nation.

There's no real policy on "records." It's a nasty slippery slope; if you take away Bonds's records for steroids, you have to take away Gaylord Perry's for throwing spitballs, and Ty Cobb's for being a racist asshole.

Dwight Gooden is wanted by the police!

Yeah, this isn't exactly a model citizen's fall from grace.

Video here, though it seems to be an IE-only plugin. See what happens when you join the Empire? He should have hooked on with the Mets, where all the stable personalities hang out.

Pedro looks headed to the Mets.

And now Shaughnessy piles it on. Is a player who's not greedy making $12 million a year suddenly greedy for making $15 million a year?

Report: Bonds Admitted to Using Substances

With the steroid scandal raging, it's a great time to go a-prostitute solicitin'. Under the radar, Denny Neagle, is where you shall stay!

Giambi admits steroid use.

I'm shocked.

Actually terrapin, I thought it would have exactly the opposite effect - putting DC disenfranchisement into the public spotlight when sportscasters and newsmedia comment on how "ironic" it is that the DC team is called the Senators when DC doesn't have any senators.

"Could you suck up to the administration any more?" It's a script W - I think that makes it a bit too homosexual for the current administration.

If I'm not mistaken, it looks like the Nats will wear the old Senators caps with the scripted "W". That's a solace, but I would have liked to see them keep the name. I hope that they will at least retire Walter Johnson's and Harmon Killebrew's jerseys alongside those of Gary Carter and Tim Raines and any other Expos that have been honored over the years.

The bad ankle exempts him from the draft, see?

Room service? They couldn't find anyone in Massachusetts willing to deliver a pizza to a hotel full of multi-millionaires?
