Here are my NL picks. Special thanks again to Eric Gouldsberry and all of the folks at www.thisgreatgame.com.
After pulling one of the worst choke jobs in the history of baseball (’51 Brooklyn Dodgers, anyone?) the New York Mets are better for one reason: Johan Santana. It was a major move getting the all-star pitcher and the dividends should be immediate. If he wins 15 games, it will be a disappointment, let’s put it that way. There are still several question marks on this team, however. One is age. Moises Alou, Luis Castillo and Carlos Delgado aren’t... Read More
It was just last season that the world held witness to one baseball’s greatest, yet most controversial feats, as Barry Bonds of the San Francisco Giants hit home run 756 to break Hank Aaron’s all time record of 755. Today Barry Bond’s, who was once revered as a symbol of greatness for the Giants Franchise, now is represented around the stadium no more. AT&T Park, which at one point proudly presented itself as the home of the new home run king, by placing banners praising Bond’s chase for the record on the field wall and throughout the stadium, has recently...

Every season, I make my MLB season picks. And every year they stink. Here are my American League picks for 2008. Tomorrow I will give you my National League selections. Special thanks to my sportswriting and web site partner, Eric Gouldsberry, journalist extraordinaire and co-founder of www.thisgreatgame.com.
The Boston Red Sox were as well-oiled as a team could be in 2007. They streaked out to a great start, didn’t collapse in a contrast to tradition, and with the exception of spotting Cleveland with delusions of grandeur in the ALCS, sailed through the postseason.... Read More
Los Angeles-March 23rd, Easter Sunday will go down in the record books as one of the hottest days in recent memory tying a record in 1926 at 88 degrees. I along with thousands of Lakers fans waited patiently to enter the Los Angeles Convention Center, Hall A for the 7th Annual Fiesta Lakers presented in conjunction with 1330 AM ESPN DEPORTES RADIO. Everyone was happy when they entered the air conditioned main floor of the Convention Center. There were various inter-active events for the whole family, autograph sessions with current Lakers players-Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol,... Read More
James Delaney, born on August 1, 1924 fought under the name of Jimmy Doyle. He made his professional debut in May 6, 1941 at age 17 at the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles. He also fought many times at the Hollywood Legion Stadium where local boxers of the day used to fight. The stadium was closed in 1959. Doyle used to train at Main Street Gym also in Los Angeles and also gone like the Legion.
Like myself Jimmy Doyle was of french ancestry. He was a classy fighter and was attracted by fight fans of his old-fashioned stand up stance which made him look like a throwback of the bare-knuckle... Read More
Last night I had the pleasure of being at the San Jose Sharks hockey game at HP Pavilion. If you’re not a hockey fan, you’re probably not aware of this team’s amazing 11-game winning streak. It’s the longest streak in the NHL this season and the most impressive run of consecutive victories since the New Jersey Devils won 11 in a row two years ago. The all-time record is 17 straight, accomplished by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1993.
To say that San Jose is excited about their Sharks right now is a huge understatement. Last night the arena (aka “The Shark... Read More
The Yankees spring camp was turned into fantasy camp Thursday as comedian Billy Crystal, who signed a one-day contract with the New York Yankees on Wednesday, played his first and only game as the Yanks took on the Pittsburg Pirates at Legends Field.
Crystal, who celebrates his 60th birthday on Friday, wore number 60 and led off for the Yanks as the designated hitter. “I’m the D.H. — designated Hebrew,” Crystal said. “It doesn’t matter. I’m so jazzed. It’s the greatest thrill ever.”
Crystal, who was his high schools baseball... Read More
