    Iron Eagle

    Stuff you missed while trying to make sense of this whole Libya thing by watching “Iron Eagle” over and over again. On VHS.

  2. Lack of standout first-timers on next year’s HOF ballot is good news for Larkin and Bagwell

    Jan 5, 2011, 2:23 PM EDT

    Deserving players like Barry Larkin, Tim Raines, and Jeff Bagwell fell short of reaching the 75 percent of the votes required for Hall of Fame induction this year, but they’ll have a good chance to increase their totals in 2012 as the pool of first-year eligible players doesn’t include anyone likely bound for Cooperstown. Here’s…

  3. The Best and Worst Uniforms of All Time: The Arizona Diamondbacks

    Nov 11, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Schilling Diamondbacks

    Best: Minor variations aside, the Diamondbacks have only really had two uniforms. The current one and the old one.  The current one is not what I’d consider the Platonic ideal of baseball style, but as you’ll see in a second, I believe it to be the superior look. Worst: Incorporating teal, purple, black, pinstripes and…

  4. Brett Myers makes history by throwing six-plus innings in 30th straight start

    Sep 14, 2010, 11:19 AM EDT

    Brett Myers’ career-year continued last night with seven innings of one-run ball in a win over the Brewers and he also made some history by becoming just the seventh pitcher since 1920 to throw six or more innings in each of his first 30 starts. The previous six: Bob Gibson (1968 and 1969), Fergie Jenkins…

  5. Revisiting the player of the 1990s discussion

    Jun 9, 2010, 6:15 PM EDT

    Since my Ken Griffey Jr. retirement piece received so much feedback… After the 1999 season, Ken Griffey Jr. was famously named the Player of the Decade by the players themselves, as part of the MLBPA’s Players Choice Awards. No balloting was ever announced, so we don’t know how close the vote was. The choice garnered…

  6. Dallas Braden almost had to school someone else on the unwritten rules

    May 10, 2010, 9:34 AM EDT

    The only downside to Dallas Braden’s perfect game yesterday is that we narrowly missed out on a chance to have him once again bring the 209 noise about respect and the unwritten rules and all of that jive. The scene: fifth inning, nobody out, Evan Longoria at the plate. He attempts to reach on a…

  7. Mets lose Nelson Figueroa to Phillies on waivers

    Apr 7, 2010, 2:55 PM EDT

    Wanting some extra pitching depth with Joe Blanton hurting and both Jamie Moyer and Kyle Kendrick in the rotation, the Phillies claimed right-hander Nelson Figueroa off waivers from the Mets. Figueroa had a 4.28 ERA in 115.2 innings for the Mets over the past two seasons, but his 95/50 K/BB ratio was sub par and…

  8. The Phillies place Joe Blanton on the DL

    Apr 1, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    So much for that fifth starter’s race. Now that the Phillies have placed Joe Blanton on the 15-day disabled list with a strained oblique muscle, it looks like both Jamie Moyer and Kyle Kendrick will get to start, at least for a while. Zolecki says Blanton could be out anywhere from 3-6 weeks. He also…

  9. Derrick Turnbow and the 'exploding' big toe

    Mar 1, 2010, 11:45 AM EDT

    Derrick Turnbow is so determined to win a spot on the Marlins’ pitching staff that the big toe on his left foot being “a bloody mess” yesterday didn’t stop him from throwing a bullpen session: “My toenail jammed up in my shoe about a week ago and it caused it to swell up,” Turnbow said.…

  10. The bloody sock doctor is in big trouble

    Feb 26, 2010, 10:52 AM EDT

    The doctor who performed the meatball surgery on Curt Schilling’s ankle in 2004 which led to the bloody sock has had his license suspended and is under investigation for . . . something. Unauthorized possession of stage blood?  Complicity to overacting? Accessory to second degree myth-making?

  11. Quote of the Day: Sports Illustrated on the Astros

    Jan 25, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    This is really a quote of yesterday — April 15, 1991 to be exact — that reader Christopher Modell dug up while trying to find some more info for me on Craig Biggio’s catching prowess.  The writers of the piece — William Oscar Johnson and Albert Kim — are concerned that the Astros are embarking…

  12. Randy Johnson is a bit more complex than Pearlman makes him out to be

    Jan 6, 2010, 1:04 PM EDT

    Following up on the Pearlman thing, here’s a link to a lengthy story from 2002 by the legendary Pat Jordan in the New York Times. It’s a profile of Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling during their Diamondback heyday. It’s a nice compare and contrast.  Jordan doesn’t sugarcoat Johnson’s surly demeanor. He’s definitely a hard man…

  13. Someone could sign today

    Nov 26, 2009, 10:18 AM EDT

    Doug Miller at MLB.com reminds us that Thanksgiving isn’t necessarily a day off in the hot stove league: Mets GM Omar Minaya might have put it best last year when he told the New York Daily News, “In this business, Thanksgiving is still a work day.” Minaya’s Red Sox counterpart, Theo Epstein, proved that in…

  14. Pettitte's Hall of Fame case strengthens with every win

    Oct 30, 2009, 4:07 PM EDT

    How exactly do we weigh opportunity? Andy Pettitte has been far from an ace while finishing with ERAs over 4.00 each of the last four seasons, yet he keeps winning 14 games every year and is now up to 229 victories for his career. That comes with being an above average starter for very good…

  15. Mark McGwire gets a shot at redemption

    Oct 26, 2009, 9:25 AM EDT

    Big Mac is back. Since hitting coaches don’t do that much, there won’t be much to say about his impact on the 2010 Cardinals. This story, ironically enough given the figure involved, is all about the past. Let’s delve into it, shall we?  I’m often critical of the uneven way in which players associated with…

  16. Can the Angels make history?

    Oct 24, 2009, 4:56 PM EDT

    The media has been quick to hand the Yankees their 40th pennant. Mets fans are already picking which side of hell they will be rooting for in the World Series. But a dramatic comeback win on Thursday night was enough to remind you that these Angels still have some fight left in them. As Game…

  17. Link-O-Rama: Heel injury ends Scutaro's breakout season

    Sep 23, 2009, 11:47 AM EDT

    * Marco Scutaro’s career-best season is likely over after an MRI exam revealed a tear in the plantar fasciitis of his right heel. The injury comes at an inopportune time for the 33-year-old impending free agent, but hitting .282/.379/.409 with 12 homers, 35 doubles, 90 walks, and 14 steals in 144 games as the Blue…

  18. Quick hits: Free-agent compensation madness

    Sep 5, 2009, 6:42 PM EDT

    - Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports takes a detailed look at the inequities of the free-agent compensation system while advocating some changes, if not a complete overhaul. For example, Passan finds that in the current system, Giants reliever Sergio Romo is worth more than Rockies star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki. The example is extreme, yet valid.…

  19. Restoring the rosters: No. 8 – Boston

    Sep 1, 2009, 4:39 PM EDT

    This is part of a series of articles examining what every team’s roster would look like if given only the players it originally signed. I’m compiling the rosters, ranking them and presenting them in a countdown from Nos. 30 to 1. No. 30 – Cincinnati No. 29 – Kansas City No. 28 – San Diego…

  20. Restoring the rosters: No. 11 – Arizona

    Aug 29, 2009, 3:50 PM EDT

  21. Has Hochevar turned the corner with back-to-back strong starts?

    Jul 27, 2009, 12:38 PM EDT

    Prior to last week Luke Hochevar seemed destined for a career as a solid but unspectacular mid-rotation starter, which while certainly not a bad thing would qualify as a big disappointment for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2006 draft. Hochevar had a mediocre 92/39 K/BB ratio in 123 innings at Triple-A and then…

  22. And That Happened: Sunday's scores and recaps

    Jun 1, 2009, 5:33 AM EDT

    Red Sox 8, Blue Jays 2: The game story headlines give credit for the win to the Sox shaking up their lineup — Pedroia hit leadoff and Ellsbury dropped to eighth – but Ellsbury actually got on base more than Pedroia did in this game and wasn’t on base for either of Kevin Youkilis’ home…
