Rico Brogna: Either You Are A Hall Of Famer Or You Are Not!

“Piazza! Piazza!” Little RICO Act.

Barry Bonds in recent years has been a heated debate. Should he or shouldn’t he get in the HOF? And if the answer is yes, should Barry be a first ballot HOF? C’mon man! This guy was unbelievable, PED’s or whatever! There is one thing you need to ask yourself, “Is Barry Bonds and his performance on the field during his career worthy of HOF entry? As my son would say (he’s 8 years old), “Duh!” ‘Nuff said. Barry is simply one of the best to ever play this great game. No maybe, no but what about the help he might have gotten, and no, well, lets put him in but make him wait. I see clearly now, the powers that be are playing HOF God? C’mon man! If Barry is not an automatic, in any era, no ...

Jamie McCourt-Ron Burkle ‘deal’ is denied

MLB initially claimed Frank McCourt had diverted more than $100 million from team revenue for personal use.

In a generally unrelated filing in divorce court, attorneys for Frank McCourt dismissed that claim as “patently false.”

“Even taking the commissioner’s false claim that $100 million was taken out of the Dodgers at face value,” the filing read, “it is difficult to understand how the commissioner can complain about this when he pays himself a salary of approximately $20 million a year — meaning that he has taken out between $120 million and $140 million from baseball revenues during the same period that he complains about $100 million being taken out by the owner of a team.”

Selig’s annual salary is $18.35 million, according to ...

Astros’ failure to launch no reason to deal

A contrarian view from David Schoenfield as the trade deadline approaches:

It all fell apart for the Houston Astros on … well, on Opening Day.

...

This has led to speculation that the club is shopping around two of its three best players, All-Star right fielder Hunter Pence and lefty starter Wandy Rodriguez. The Astros, after all, have little talent on the big-league roster and a farm system widely considered one of the most barren in the majors. They may as trade a couple of their few valuable assets, get a slew of prospects and start over under new owner Jim Crane, who will soon take over the club. (By the way, for those who think baseball is struggling, Crane purchased the Astros for $680 million, the second-largest sale in major ...

The Electric Dock Ellis Acid Test: An Attempt To Recreate His Drug-Addled No-Hitter, On Xbox

Turn on, tune in, Doumit.

I took my first strip of the stuff… at approximately 12:30 in the afternoon and it took about 30 minutes for the first burst of spastic wooziness to arrive. The games began, with an MLB2K11 custom-generated Dock Ellis leading the 2011 Pirates against the 2011 San Diego Padres, a considerably less fearsome offensive bunch than the woeful ‘70 Pads, who at least had homer-thumping Nate Colbert in the cleanup spot… We’d agreed in advance that once I gave up a hit, I’d start again…

Between games I’d slump over to the left side of the couch, or wander out to the back garden, overcome by the majesty of how pretty these leaves were and how many different shades of green existed in the world and how tough it must be to ...

MSNBC Hardball Talk: Hideki Irabu found dead; suicide suspected

If indeed true, RIP.

This is just breaking and, at present, we only have links to stories in Japanese, but apparently former Yankees pitcher Hideki Irabu was found dead at his California home yesterday.  Suicide is suspected.

Irabu has had a troubled post-baseball career. He was arrested in Gardena, California last year for drunk driving.  Back in 2008 he was arrested for assaulting a bar manager in Japan after allegedly consuming 20 glasses of beer.

After achieving stardom in Japan, Irabu’s contract was purchased by the San Diego Padres in early 1997.  Irabu wanted no part of San Diego, however, and a trade to the Yankees was arranged.  Irabu earned World Series rings with the Yankees in both 1998 and 1999, but he fell far short of ...

“Colby Rasmus family blames Cards manager for trade”

Tony Rasmus didn’t throw the first stone, but he was firing back.

In June of 2010 the father visited his son in St. Louis and worked on hitting: “We didn’t do anything serious. Colby told Tony about it. After last June that was the end of that,” said Tony Rasmus, who said four weeks ago the Cards and Colby were involved in talks on a four-year deal.

“Evidently Tony (La Russa) has absolutely made that stuff up. He’s got it on the brain. If I was working with my son I’d tell people.

“Tony needed pitching and wanted to force the GM into making a trade, so he belittled Colby to the fans.”

The Cubs will deal outfielder Kosuke Fukudome to the Indians on Thursday for two Minor Leaguers.

The two sides were close to finalizing a deal with only minor details still being worked out. A source indicated that Cleveland expected Fukudome to waive his no-trade clause to approve the deal to the Indians.

Details were still being finalized as to which Minor Leaguers were to go to Chicago in the deal.

Vecsey: An Underachieving Symbol of the Mets’ Lost Decade

Why do they always misspell Beltran…Minaya?

As the Beltran era ends, he was not the only one caught up in the miasma of underperformance. Omar Minaya, brought back to run the club after the 2004 season, brought in not only Beltran but Pedro Martinez, Carlos Delgado, Johan Santana and Francisco Rodriguez, all of them now gone except for Santana, who is trying to pitch again after surgery.

The managers were Willie Randolph, who was sabotaged by the front office — not Minaya — and by some players in the clubhouse, too. Jerry Manuel was decent but diffident, as if awaiting the chop.

Now that era is over, and Beltran has his name attached to it because he lasted more than six and a half seasons, and personified the time with one ...

Checking Most Viewed | Top Rated on Epic Rap Battles of History now. Back in 5.

The newspaper industry is in enough trouble these days without printing smear jobs written by “journalists” who have a conflict of interest about the very subject they are writing about.  But this past week, the New York Post did just that by publishing this gem by Peter J. Nash about deceased baseball memorabilia collector Barry Halper.

NC Times: Sean Burroughs is back, but not his old habits

Burroughs, now 30, had it all, going from Little League World Series star to hitting .286 as the Padres’ third baseman in 2003. But from that station he morphed into a Las Vegas druggie, addicted to the bright lights and his next buzz. It was a combination that extinguished his baseball career for nearly four years and Burroughs said, “left me on death’s door.

Grainy 39-second film offers rare glimpse of famed black baseball player John Wesley Donaldson

The first time Pete Gorton met Rich Oxley, Oxley told him not to say a word.

“Just watch,” Oxley said as he turned on a film projector at his house in White Bear Lake.

The grainy 39-second black-and-white film that followed showed a loose and limber fireballer hurling a fastball in 1925.

...Oxley realized he had a key piece of Donaldson’s story in his basement. Those 39 seconds of film - the only known reel ever shot of Donaldson - were carefully preserved in a dark-green metal film canister.

Oxley’s grandfather, W.T. Oxley, a professional photographer in Fergus Falls, Minn., in the early 1900s, shot the footage with a hand-cranked 16mm movie camera.

It is believed to have been shot during an Aug. 16, 1925, game at the Fergus Falls ...

Please be a stretch limo, please be a stretch limo…bah!

When a man in Walnut Creek, California had his car stolen from the parking lot while he ran into a McDonald’s for coffee, he was obviously having a bad case of the Mondays. The man left his keys in the ignition when he went inside the restaurant. When he returned, his car was gone. However, the stolen Hyundai was not even the worst part for the owner.

In the back seat of the car were several balls and bats from former Giants Hall of Famer, Willie McCovey, as well as an autographed uniform patch.

Father Raymond J. de Souza: Honouring Roger Maris, baseball’s moral champion

ABANDON THE WAY OF HATRED!

Bonds, McGwire and Sosa put up six seasons between them with more than 61 home runs, the old record held by Maris. Absent the steroid era, Maris would still have the record. If Maris were in the Hall, while the steroid triplets were kept out, it would be fitting way to honour the real home run record — held by a decent man who brought honour to the game.

Yet Roger Maris is not in the Hall of Fame, despite his record, despite being a two-time league MVP, despite various campaigns and petitions to get him inducted. Four years ago I wrote that inducting Maris would be a correction to the steroid era. In the intervening years, baseball’s steroid stain has only spread. Maris is needed now more than ever.

Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 7-28-2011

Thomas Busch, “Searching For Victory”:

Sometime in late March or early April, 1911, Charley [Faust] set out for Wichita, Kansas (the nearest “big city”), in search of some diversion from the drudgery of farm routine. There he found a fortune teller who, for five dollars, told him he would become the greatest pitcher the world had ever known if he would join the New York Giants. Three times she told him this, and added that when he had established himself and helped the Giants to win a pennant, he would meet a girl named Lulu, marry her, and become the father of future generations of baseball stars.

Wolfman-Arent: How Roger Goodell Burned Baseball, and Buried the Past

The day I stopped gambling was the day I stopped watching football.

Mark it down, carve it in granite, encase it in flowing eulogies.

On July 25, 2011 the National Football League finally laid baseball to rest. Not only did players and owners agree to a new collective bargaining agreement, but they did so with emphasis - as if to prove one last time that football, not baseball, is now America’s game.

Whether it was a power play or mere coincidence I do not know, but it is clear the timing of the NFL agreement savagely undermined the usual excitement surround Major League Baseball’s trading deadline. During the last week of July, in a period of summer doldrums usually dominated by baseball news, the NFL announced a triumphant conclusion ...

Weeks injured his left ankle running out an infield hit in the second inning. His foot hit the bag at an odd angle and he tumbled over the base and into foul territory.

Weeks was helped off the field and X-rays proved negative. But a magnetic resonance imaging exam was being performed Wednesday night to check for ligament damage.

“He’s going to be out a while,” said Roenicke, who indicated Weeks would go on the disabled list. “This isn’t going to be a couple days.

Isaacs: I Take Me Out To The New Ball Park

Doug Siskiyou chipmunks are go! Stan Isaacs finally gets around to visiting Citi Field for the first time…

I was back in New York recently for my first look at the Mets’ new ball park, the second-year Citi Field. My first reaction was that-like all the new ball parks-it seemed as if as many people were at the food stands eating as were in the stands watching the game.

...The Mets hit three balls off the outfield fences against the Phillies for doubles; they would have been home runs in just about every ball park in the big leagues. It emphasized what a disaster the distant fences are for the excitement quotient at this ball park. Citi Field lacks the live feeling of such as Fenway Park and the Phillies’ field where the short fences ...

Seattle PI: Rick Kaminski, ‘The Peanut Man,’ dies at 67

Anyone who has ever been to a Mariners game will remember Rick. With the death of Dave Niehaus last year, and The Peanut Man this year, the two most loved figures associated with the team who never wore the uniform are now gone…

Rick Kaminski, known to generations of Mariners fans as The Peanut Man, working games since the team’s first season in 1977, has died.

Kaminski, 67, was hospitalized this week after a brain aneurysm. His partner, Candi Mindt-Keener, announced Wednesday that he died overnight at Evergreen Medical Center.

Kaminski was famous for his humor and his accurate arm tossing bags of peanuts to fans, often behind his back. He was a fixture at the Kingdome and later Safeco Field while also working other local games.

Angels’ Ervin Santana throws no-hitter against Cleveland Indians

Ervin Santana turned in a performance Wednesday that won’t soon be forgotten, pitching a no-hitter against the Cleveland Indians in a 3-1 Angels win.

Santana was as efficient as he was dominating, needing just 105 pitches—76 of them strikes—to give the Angels their first complete-game no-hitter since Mike Witt’s perfect game at Texas in 1984. And the Indians came close to a hit just once, when Howie Kendrick made a sliding, back-handed stop of Jason Kipnis’ ground ball leading off the sixth and threw out the runner from his knees on the grass behind second base.

The only other close call came with two outs in the seventh when designated hitter Travis Hafner lined an 0-2 pitch down the left-field line. But the ball landed several feet ...

But then things really got interesting. After taking a big group photo—including all the Yankees, and all the children—water balloons were distributed to everyone. Now, I had seen the buckets of water balloons earlier, and (naturally?) assumed we were going to play a harmless game of water balloon toss—you know, to see which pair could toss and catch the balloon the longest without breaking it…

Beat the NL? They can’t even Beat Takeshi!

One month ago today, on an idyllic day in Southern California, Davey Johnson walked into the Washington Nationals dugout and managed his first baseball game in 11 years. He loved every minute, he said afterward, even though they lost. He savored the challenge and could not wait for more.

After the 10-game stretch coming out of the all-star break, some of that verve, at least outwardly, has drained from Johnson. It is hard to love every minute of recording five hits in two games, or of falling into last place. His record is 9-15, which is the fourth-worst record in the majors over that span.

The Trappers are now a remarkable 32-4 in the Pioneer League.

The Trappers actually had a losing record that year in games not played during the 29-game streak.  Other odd facts about the 1987 Salt Lake Trappers:  They pulled off the streak without the benefit of a Major League affiliate to provide players, and not a single player from that team made it to The Show.

Remember July 5th?  That is the last time the Mariners won a game.

At some point later in the game, I happened across the following tweet from Joe Posnanski:

You get the feeling the Mariners will remember Loss No. 17 as the “time we got that hit off C.C. Sabathia.”

That single felt like a win. Of course that sounds stupid. Of course that sounds humiliating. But the loss was already all but official, and for me it was the first triumphant moment in weeks. It felt better than Miguel Olivo’s game-tying grand slam. The only victory was that the Mariners avoided being no-hit, which generally isn’t so much an achievement as an expectation, but it was an achievement tonight. Lately the Mariners haven’t achieved a lot of positive things.
