    Dodgers were in last place and the McCourts announced that Dodger Stadium will have a 500 zillion dollar facelift and parking structures in the parking lots.

    In-freaking-credible.

    The plans look like a Las Vegas hotel.

    There will be a Dodger Museum, a Dodger store, a Dodger theme park, a Dodger hair salon, Tanning salon, Dodger brothel, too! The last is for the Dodger fans who almost cannot afford to go to a game.

    OUch!
    I was just checking out the news when I saw a story about a Yanks fan who ran over some guy after an arguement about baseball.

    The guy that was killed was a BOSOX fan, talk about rivalries!

    For the record - it was in Nashua, New Hampshire. - and the Yankee fan is a 43 year old woman.

    ESPN just did a piece on a pitcher from the Nippon Ham Fighters.

    His name is Yu Darvish - He's part Iranian and Japanese. He's supposed to be the next Tom Seaver when, and if, he comes to play ball in the states!

    He looked really good.

    --------------

    I just heard that the two teams with the lowest payrolls are leading their divisions.....I love it!

    One is the TB Rays, I love to see teams make the most of a roster with a few bucks and desire!

    Good news

    A Boston Red Sox pitcher threw a no hitter tonight.

    It's a special game, because he's a recent cancer survivor..

    24?

    I am fricking jealous!


    I read the story this morning! That's pretty inspirational.
    ===========

    BTW,

    I heard the story of the family that is suing an aluminium bat manufacturer for an accident where a young kid-Little League- was hit in the chest with a ball he pitched. The impact stopped his heart and caused him to have some brain damage.

    Like I feel for the kid, but isn't that taking things too far? Yeah, metal bats make the ball go farther and faster, but what is the outcome? A pitcher dressed in a catcher's get up to play?

    Why I love baseball?

    THe ovation that Manny Ramirez got from the Baltimore fans on his 500th homerun!

    Why I hate baseball?

    The Dodger's Todd Helton had a bat that splintered, went into the stands and hit a woman in the face. Broke it in two places, screws, surgery and wiring it shut cost 7k.

    The insurance carrier ain't gonna help her because of the small writing on the back of the ticket. The Dodger spokeman said TFB, get better.

    Here you have a MEGA company that cannot even use this incident as a "Good Will" story, Imagine the spin a team could get on a story where they go to the aid of a fan-even if they didn't advertise it with a press release!


    I hate Frank McCourt.

    -------

    The woman hit by the bat has hired a lawyer and he stated that the costs for her care will go past 50,000 dollars. He's not filing a lawsuit, yet....



    The fan that caught MR's 500th homerun gave it back to MR and asked for nothing in return!

    Did anyone see the 93 year old woman who got to throw out the first pitch at the Cubs game?

    God bless her, she was fricking neat. She showed up on the air wearing her jersey!

    ----------------

    Maple bats.......Fans get smacked with them, nothing happens....they only become a problem when an ump gets his head chunked by a piece from a broken stick......

    Who cares about the paying customers?

    --------------

    Grievance resolution?

    Attack management! If you are the player who got canned for choking out the boss, does that go on you baseball card as a stat?

    Did any of you read about the Boone family?

    How cool is this -

    A major league milestone became a family affair for Aaron Boone on Wednesday.

    The Washington Nationals first baseman earned his 1,000th hit against the Los Angeles Angels, becoming the fourth member of his famous family to achieve the feat.

    Boone, 35, reached the mark with an infield single in the bottom of the eighth during Washington's 5-4 win.

    His grandfather Ray (1,260), father Bob (1,838) and brother Bret (1,775) all have enjoyed the same achievement.

    Boone, a veteran of 12 seasons with the Cincinnati Reds, New York Yankees, Cleveland Indians, Florida Marlins and Washington, becomes the 1,171st player in major league history to reach the 1,000 plateau.

    In 1,101 career games played, Boone has hit .265 with 125 home runs and 543 RBIs.

    I still remember BOB Boone playing, that's incredible.

    The Dodger's won last night without getting a hit in the game.
