*** To those of you out there, and you KNOW who you are, who believe EVERY damn thing negative written at and/or towards certain baseball players...understand what you're dealing with. As I mentioned here on OS a few months back, to the dislike of at leat one member..and you know I didn't give a damn...certain publications and/or writers as well as certain sports talk hosts have ONLY one agenda---character assassination.

Of course some of us are ahead of that proverbial curve in ... Read More

when there was not, is not and won't be any kind of divide in the Mets clubhouse? This kind of **** REALLY pisses me off. It is amazing how ignorant and xenohpobic more than a few of these so-called Mets fans are.
Un-f*cking-real.

And for the THIRD time in the last few days..some of these low-lifes are STILL talking about, "...guys like Paul LoDuca were what was needed in the Mets clubhouse..." Paul LoDuca, huh?

Please....

And at THIS time I won't ... Read More

It was thought that he was going to be one of the most sought-after free agents this offseason. Then the Winter Meetings went by without barely a peep about Aroldis Chapman.

Now, mainly due to a lack of information, the value of the 21-year-old left-hander has reportedly dropped, from the $60 million over six years that had been floating around to something resembling the four-year, $15.1 million Stephen ... Read More

By Anthony Castrovince / MLB.com

ST. LOUIS -- Albert Pujols is the face of the 80th Major League Baseball All-Star Game, so it's appropriate that he'll pair up with the face of the nation Tuesday night.

I grew up and still go to this area of East New York/Canarsie, Brooklyn. When I heard this story a couple of Sundays ago, I just shook my head in disbelief. Not because of some ******* randomly firing a gun, but the fact that this young man was at the park, with his team, on a sunny Sunday afternoon and this happened.

I know anywhere and anytime, anyone of us could be a victim of a random gunshot, but where he was, and the time it happened, I just didn't expect it to happen. God is ... Read More

I've been meaning to touch on the fact that coming into this Spring Training, the New York Mets had one...only one...black American on their 40-man roster. And that is Marlon Anderson.

Being of African-American/Latino ancestry myself, I know that black is black. Most of us don't try to 'divide' or differentiate what is patently obvious...African blood.

The Jose Reyes', the Pedro Martinez', the Hanley Ramirez', the Robinson Cancel's, the Sandy Alomar Srs, the Julio ... Read More

I'm going to keep this blog entry as a continuous posting until at least the end of the 2009 major league season. Many times I'm bothered, REALLY bothered by many of the hosts, most of the callers and the whole cesspool called 'fandom'

My first issue:

WFAN's logistics aside...for the last two days, WFAN has had their prominent personality, Mike Francesa, do his show live from Port St. Lucie. He's sitting in one of the broadcast booths. One would THINK that for at LEAST ... Read More

KISSIMMEE, Fla.: The Atlanta Braves emerged from the dugout as though it was just another spring training day. The pitchers headed to the mound. The hitters wandered in and out of the cage, taking their swings. Bobby Cox wobbled around the field trying to get a look at some of the promising kids.

"We move on real fast," the venerable manager said, standing along the first-base line after his team took ... Read More

Perez, Ponce set for Caribbean Series
Former Major Leaguer the skipper for Puerto Rican squad
By Jesse Sanchez / MLB.com

Eduardo Perez's voicemail is full. His inbox is so loaded it sometimes kicks back e-mails, and his cell phone battery is barely hanging on.
When the former Major League player says he is keeping busy in the days since his playing days ended in 2006, he is being humble.

Because sandwiched ... Read More
