Wrigley Field: What’s in a name is plenty to Cub Fans. - Mike Fak(18,246) Mike Fak The other day, the entire front page of the Chicago Sun Times was devoted to the outrage storming through Chicago‚Äôs bars, taverns, coffee shops and even churches. Notorious new owner of the Tribune Corp, Sam Zell went on record as saying he was looking into selling naming rights to one of the...

Congressional Hearing on Steroids in Baseball Just Got Interesting - Rob Trahan(12,495) Rob Trahan Ladies and gentlemen, bar your doors and hide your children. The steroids issue in baseball just got a lot hairier. Congress is involved and this time they're in it for more than just grandstanding. In March 2005, The congressional committee that interviewed Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, Rafael...

Clemens on 60 Minutes January 6, Does It Matter? - Rob Trahan(12,495) Rob Trahan Since George Mitchell's report came out before Christmas and current and former players have been confessing, at least in part, to their involvement in the Steroids Era in baseball, all anyone has been asking for is some word from Roger Clemens. Something other than a canned statement from a...

Mitchell Report Is Out: Who's Responsible? - Rob Trahan(12,495) Rob Trahan I wish that I could say I was surprised at even one of the names on George Mitchell's list released today. Clemens name didn't surprise me. Neither did Pettitte's when you consider he trained with Clemens. Tejada? No way. I'm angered as an Astros fan, but not surprised. What did surprise me...

Florida Marlins to Willis, Cabrera: See Ya Later! - Rob Trahan(12,495) Rob Trahan Sometimes I wish I was independently wealthy. Not just because I would be able to buy whatever I wanted or go wherever I wanted, although that would be nice too. No, I have a theory that if I were a multimillionaire, I would understand why some of them do the asinine things that they do. ...

Where Did Competition Take Barry Bonds? - Rob Trahan(12,495) Rob Trahan Competition. It is the defining concept of sport. Without competition, football, baseball, basketball, soccer, hockey, jai alai, cricket, tennis, and on and on would just be exercise. Competition starts early (and with each generation, it starts earlier and earlier). My six-year-old son's...

MLB General Managers Recommend Instant Replay - Rob Trahan(12,495) Rob Trahan MLB General Managers voted Tuesday to move Major League Baseball into the eighties. They voted 25-5 to recommend limited instant replay during baseball games. Next step, nighttime games under the lights! The recommendation is limited to boundary calls. Whether potential home runs are fair or...

Barry Bonds Boycotts the Hall of Fame - Rob Trahan(12,495) Rob Trahan To be a professional athlete, you have to like the spotlight just a little bit. Some athletes crave the attention a little more than others. Like Alex Rodriguez, Kobe Bryant, Terrell Owens, Chad Johnson. And Barry Bonds. Bonds had the opportunity to go quietly into the night after the Giants...

Red Sox Win! Red Sox Win! - Rob Trahan(12,495) Rob Trahan In the end, there wasn't much drama. In the end, all the heart in the world wasn't enough to combat superior talent. In the end, it was the Boston Red Sox, the favorites, with the champagne shower. Colorado deserves every accolade they get by going 21 of 22 to get to the World Series. They...

Alex Rodriguez is out, Scott Boras is the Antichrist - Rob Trahan(12,495) Rob Trahan There are a lot of big egos in professional sports. Athletes have huge egos, owners too. But sometimes I think agents have the biggest of all. They come no bigger than that of Scott Boras. Boras announced during Game 4 of the world Series that his client, Alex Rodriguez, was opting out of...

World Series Preview, Sort Of - Rob Trahan(12,495) Rob Trahan Blame the Marlins. That's what I do. When the Marlins won it all in 1997, it gave all of the little guys hope. There was a gleam in the eye of every utility infielder toiling away in Middle America. Sure it was a couple more years before the little guys got on a roll, but roll they did. And they...

Paul Byrd and HGH - Rob Trahan(12,495) Rob Trahan Disclaimer: I believe Paul Byrd when he says he was prescribed HGH by a doctor as treatment for a tumor on his pituitary gland. But it is a sign of the times that even Byrd makes the news because of how scandalous steroids and HGH have become. Rarely does a news cycle pass without at least...

Joe Torre Deserved Better - Rob Trahan(12,495) Rob Trahan I must confess that I'm not in charge of multi-billion dollar corporations. I don't make decisions that could cost me tens of millions of dollars. But I'd still like to think I know a thing or two about common sense business principles. George Steinbrenner is a man who is long on money and...

Major League Baseball LCS Preview - Rob Trahan(12,495) Rob Trahan I know I'm a little bit late, but the second round of the playoffs is here (Colorado is leading Arizona 4-1 as I type). What can we expect and who will advance? Join me as I gaze into my Swarovski crystal ball. Fox is Breathing a Sigh of Relief It's only fitting that the inferior series...

MLB's Final Push to the Playoffs - Rob Trahan(12,495) Rob Trahan With a week left in the season, there are still four division races up for grabs. If you're a fan of Major League Baseball, this is either an exciting time for you or gut wrenching (hey, Red Sox fans!). If you're Astros, Pirates, Devil Rays or Rangers fans, you're already looking ahead to next...

501 Reasons Why Jim Thome Belongs in Baseball Hall of Fame - Mike Fak(18,246) Mike Fak We live in an era where sports heroes are in the news every day. Far too often, they aren't on the sports pages however. Instead we find their names on the front page for doing something incredibly stupid or selfish or criminal. These sports figures are not in the news for making game winning...

Marc Ecko and vote756, Giving the Power to the People - Rob Trahan(12,495) Rob Trahan Did you vote yet? Did you let your voice be heard? You know the old truism, if you don't vote, you can't complain. I'm referring, of course, to the vote to decide the fate of the (in)famous 756th home run ball. Fashion designer Marc Ecko bought the ball in an online auction. His winning...
