Sandlot ball going the way of wooden bats

I wish I could have played sandlot ball when I was a kid. Hell, I wish there was a sandlot team near where I live now, I still want to play. (I'm 22.) I really want to play the game, but its nearly impossible to do for free here with out being in high school. I don't want to pay $200 to play in a league, only because I know I'm (at best) a mediocre player. I just want to play for fun. Tell you what, anyone else want to start a sandlot team? I'll get some bolt cutters and get us on a field.

It was very ugly for Uggla

Remember Lance Berkman's first All-Star appearance? He struck out during the Home Run Derby. Just the jitters that come with being a first-time All-Star. Uggla will be there again, and perform better. *edit* Ok, maybe I exaggerated saying he struck out. But he did horribly, and you could tell he wasn't relaxed. Same with Uggla.

First round KO

I couldn't help but read this with a grin.

The Decline of the National League.

Since we have inter-league play now (since 1997), why not let the team with best inter-league record have homefield advantage in the World Series? It might take some of the relevance out of the All-Star game, but it would certainly be more fair to the individual teams that play in the Series. And using the All-Star game as a deciding factor for homefield adv. is not any sort of tradition yet (started 2003), so no one should be crying too much. Taking the Relevance out of the All-Star game would be a good thing. Its too serious now. It's not about fun like it used to be. Remember when Randy Johnson almost hit Larry Walker in the '97 AS Game? Walker turned around to bat right handed, as a joke. You won't see stuff like that anymore, as long as the outcome of the game decides something.

The Decline of the National League.

The annual All-Star Game, to be played Tuesday, has practically become a farce: Not counting a 2002 tie, the AL has won 10 straight. Just more proof that having the All-Star game decide Home Field Advantage in the World Series was a Bad Idea.

Christian News Site Turns Athlete Homosexual

I think I just found a reason to love overbearing Christian censorship.

I actually think they got it right the first time.

Barry Bonds offers to play for free.

They keep complaining about Bonds using steroids to bolster his numbers. But I have yet to hear a single complaint about when Doc Ellis threw a No-Hitter on Acid.

Barry Bonds offers to play for free.

Jerry Jones (Dallas Cowboys Owner) should buy a baseball team. He seems to have a knack for taking players with criminal records, bad attitudes, etc. and making them useful. Baseball doesn't have a team like that. Unless you count the Yankees (which I don't).

I think the Mariners should take him up on his offer. Worst record in the Majors, whats the worst that could happen by letting Barry DH for free? They'd probably profit from it because of the crowds he would draw. He may be the most hated man in baseball, but people will still pay to see him. Hell, I would, and I can't stand him.

Cito Gaston's coming back!

That's one hell of a coaching staff.

What franchise has the best run of players at one position in history?

@ Holden: And who knows what Rick Ankiel will do there, he might make it 4.
