Breaking: Tejada Charged

Here’s a link: Tejada Charged With Lying to Investigators. Sad.

As Far As Alex Rodriguez…

I’m not sure I can say it any better than Harvey Araton did at the Times today: The Yankees were the most ardent admirers of Rodriguez and are also positioned to be the biggest suckers, given the contract they gave him, along with promises of bonuses for every home-run hero he passes. They convinced themselves […]

Breaking Bonds News: Fit, Meet Shan

The smoking gun in the Barry Bonds saga might have finally been unearthed: the Feds are claiming that he failed a steroid test in 2000. All throughout this sordid adventure the Bonds apologists have consistently fallen back on one thing: he never failed a test. Well, dumbasses, here you go. I was as> ready as […]

The Triforce of Shame, Cal, and other news

Hello, everyone – Dan the Man here. Many thanks to Neal for allowing me to take the reins for a short time. Should be great fun and I’ll do my best to not burn the place down. As he said, Neal leaves TLC during a time when the three largest American sports are all in […]
