Rickey Henderson Was Mean to a Kid in a Wheelchair

Published by under MLB,News,Sports

Rickey Henderson

From MLB

Rickey Henderson and Jim Rice stood on the same stage as baseball’s all-time greats on Sunday, taking their rightful place among them as the newest inductees into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Amid a few droplets of rain at Clark Sports Center in baseball’s historic burgh, the two left fielders — Henderson, the quintessential leadoff hitter; Rice, the perennial power man — saw their status as legends cemented at the annual ceremony, which this year was attended by 50 members of the Hall of Fame’s 65 living members.

While Henderson is clearly one of, if not the greatest leadoff hitter in history I still can’t shake this story from my memory.  Apparently Henderson, while as a Yankee, was approached by a kid in a wheelchair who asked Rickey for his autograph.

Rumor has it Henderson gave him a smirk and said “no thanks kid, I got better things to do.”  It just goes to show all you young kids out there that these guys may be your heroes on TV,  hell even in person…..

But if you try and get their autograph, they’ll tell you to piss off like the next guy.

Isn’t baseball awesome?

Lenny Dykstra: Not Exactly the Stock Picker We Had Hoped For

Published by under MLB,Sports

Lenny

From MLB

Lenny Dykstra, a former star center fielder for the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, Reuters News Service reports.

Dykstra, 46, filed a petition on July 7 with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Central District of California claiming no more than $50,000 of assets and between $10 million and $50 million of liabilities.

It wasn’t too long ago I saw an HBO Real Sports Program solely dedicated to Lenny.   In fact he was endorsed by Jim Cramer as being one of the “great ones” in stock picking.

So what the hell went wrong?  I guess having the name “nails” probably doesn’t help.  Also fudging the fact that you have car washes that are worth $50MM doesn’t help much either.

Let’s face it man.   Dykstra is meant to be one thing and one thing only:  A high school baseball coach.  How awesome would be be?  Seriously.

Lenny ain’t no businessman.

I just happened to stumble across another 6 profile pictures that were noteworthy of a making fun of session.

The Most Noteworthy Yahoo Baseball Player Profile Pictures: Part 1

Published by under Fantasy Sports,MLB

Fantasy

I imagine that many of you out there are in Fantasy Baseball leagues.  And while I’ve tried most systems, I tend to find Yahoo’s platform to be the easiest (and how could you not love Preston from customer service? what a gentleman).

And when you’ve been through enough seasons there aren’t too many new things to look forward to year after year.  However, I have to admit it’s always fun to see what the new player profile pictures look like.  It’s always a treat when you run into something special.

I’m going to make this a running series because it’s really hard scour through hundreds of baseball player profiles.  But honestly if you guys have any other suggestions please send them on by and I’ll be sure to put them up in the next installment.

Here are the first five ridiculous yahoo baseball player profile pictures

Some Real Reasons Why David Ortiz Sucks This Year

Published by under MLB

David Ortiz

David Ortiz finally hit a bomb the other day but let’s face it, there’s something severely wrong with the guy.  I find it quite interesting that no one has yet brought up steroids as a possible reason.  I’d have to assume that most people are thinking it but wouldn’t it at least be logical?

It’s not like Ortiz is 40 years old.  Even he’s said so himself.   So the bottom line is that something has to be wrong with the guy.  And as fantasy owners wait for the man to turn it all around for some kind of miracle rest of the season, we’re all trying to figure out what the hell this dude’s real problem is.

Well I’ve come up with some pretty legit reasons as to why Ortiz is screwing up on a consistent basis this year.

He might want to read this.

I Can Only Assume that MLB Players Regret the Remetee Campaign

Published by under MLB

Remetee

Remetee is a premium lifestyle brand with flawless mixtures of art, culture, music and fashion. Each garment is viewed as a blank slate to express a mixture of diverse LA cultures and influences. These influences, originating from the graffiti lined streets and gritty tattoo parlors lining LA’s coast, infuse luxury LA culture through fit, fabric and art to create true California Couture.

Yeah maybe that’s what the description says.  I say it’s about the lamest kind of shirt on the market.  And I’m surprised that dudes like Ryan Braun, Phil Hughes, and others decided to model them.

Seven Closers We Need Back in Major League Baseball

Published by under MLB,Sports

Rocker

Being a closer in Major League Baseball sure as hell ain’t what it used to be.  Nowadays some guys get 10 figure deals in the offseason and are valued way too highly.  Plus, and I could be wrong here, I feel like saves are a joke these days and back in the 70′s, 80′s and even early 90′s a closer really “closed” a game.  You got a one run lead, a tough lineup coming up, and you really need to earn it.

Now you got a three run lead and it’s automatically time to put in the closer.   Guy gives up two runs and still earns the save? It’s just boring and pathetic if you ask me.  Plus, where’s the flare in our guys today?  I mean where’s the excitement on the mound?

Is Julian Tavarez the only psycho reliever left out there?  And he’s not even a closer.  Eh whatever.  Point is, I just miss some of these guys.

Here are seven closers we need back in MLB

Goodbye To Rickie Weeks and the Rest of My Fantasy Baseball Season

Published by under MLB,Sports

Weeks

I’m not sure why drafting Rickie Weeks (albeit in the 18th round), Carlos Delgado, and Vladimir Guerrero would lead me to believe I had any shot at a title this year, but clearly I must have been and still am delusional.

It was a nice tease.  A lovely beginning to what could have been a historical season for Dicky Weeks.  It’s a shame.  A damned shame.  If it weren’t for making millions of dollars and the always possibility of steroids I might actually even feel bad for this guy.

But as it stands I have to count on Alberto Callaspo and Felipe Lopez to fill the void?  No.  Now I need to make a trade which will really suck to do.  And it’s only May.

Man I hate fantasy baseball.  Couldn’t the season just end today while I’m still in first?

Some Fun Roger Clemens Photoshops for Your Enjoyment

Published by under MLB

Clemens Photoshop

Given all the crap going on lately with Manny, Mr. Rodriguez and of course Sir Clemens, I’d like us all to simply take a breath and try to relax.  It’s been a tumultuous road filled with scandal, pressure, and a taint that smells worse than my ass after running six miles.

Baseball’s best and brightest players aren’t really the best and certainly aren’t the brightest.  The game keeps taking turns for the worse as aspiring, clean players try to make their historical marks.

So while we wait for the next “clean star” to go down (is Pujols legit?) let us try and continue poking fun at the stinkers out there.

Clemens, these pictures are for you bud.
