As the presence of time has swept us along through histories halls, we have witnessed many of our proud legacies overshadowed by what we have tried to create, a better and more entertaining game of baseball.

The days of the 1930s through the 1960s seem to have vanished before our generation’s very eyes, never to be witnessed again. The players that once played the field like giants have come and gone, and all we have left is the legacies of their greatness. Players like Ted Williams, Jackie Robinson, Bob Gibson, and Babe Ruth, who left our fathers and mother’s enamored, have also... Read More

Now that Manny Ramirez has screwed up in one of the worst ways imaginable--getting caught taking a substance banned by baseball--maybe the Dodgers should think about hiring their old nemesis and sticking him in left field. Juan Pierre is not a bad player and I'm not going to bash him here, but the team lacks power and Barry Bonds still has enough left in the tank (and in the syringe?) to provide some.

Actually, although I am very disappointed with Manny's Mishap, I have long said that MLB should just let players take whatever they want to enhance their performance. If an athlete is... Read More

Ed Bressoud was a very slick fielding dependable shortstop whose arrival in 1956 allowed the Giants to send Alvin Dark to the Cardinals in a deal for Red Schoendienst. He spent just two of his six Giant seasons as their regular shortstop, but was successful in three years with the Red Sox because he adapted his swing to Fenway's leftfield wall; hitting 20 HR for the Bosox in 1963. Made expendable by Rico Petrocelli's emergence in 1965, Bressoud concluded his career against the Red Sox as a Cardinal utility man in the 1967 World Series.

His one all-star appearance in 1964: “It was a... Read More

Redskins vs. Cowboys. Michigan vs. Ohio State. Lakers vs. Celtics. There is a reason we watch the games we watch. There is a reason we love the teams we love. There is only one reason you can see a grown man openly weep over an empty pint of beer in front of both friends and strangers. The reason is sports. There is nothing better than competition and there's only one thing better than winning: vanquishing your one main enemy and destroying the hopes of those you are sworn to hate. For those of us who are sports fans, there is nothing better in this world than beating your rival. And... Read More

The main reason for this is General Manager Brian Cashman. George Steinbrenner is no longer using Cashman like a human puppet, and is letting him do his thing and pull the strings himself, and so far it looks like a very wise business decision. Georgie Porgie has a history of moving personnel around like those little pieces in a Monopoly game. The result is that the Bronx Bombers have spent more time in Marvin Gardens than they have on Park Avenue. Last season the Detroit Tigers embarrassed them so badly that the team looked like that poor sap in Monopoly jail. This year the Yanks may just... Read More

One of the must unusual sports stories to ever take place has been captured for posterity by filmmakers Danny Gold and Matthew Asner. In the summer of 2005 a ragtag group of Japanese baseball players became the first foreign team to compete in an American professional sports league. The documentary "Season of the Samurai"looks at this historic event by traveling on the bus with the Japan Samurai Bears through their grueling schedule of 90 games in 97 days in their one and only season in the Golden Baseball League. Led by their foul-mouthed manager, ex-major leaguer Warren Cromartie, the... Read More

Since 1969, the year my family moved to L.A. from New York, I have personally witnessed one of the most intense sports rivalries in team sports between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants.

This rivalry is so special because it's so old, with great tradition and history behind it. This hate-hate relationship can be traced all the way back to the early 1900's, when the New York Giants and the Brooklyn Dodgers (originally the Robins) fought and scrapped throughout many seasons. Names like John McGraw, Zack Wheat, Christy Mathewson, Mel Ott, Roy Campanella, Pee Wee Reese,... Read More
