And Now For Something Completely Different

Happy premise number two: there is no giant foot trying to squash me.

On this baseball off-night that has been dominated by fallout from the (calamitous/perfectly reasonable) handling of the Torre contract offering, be sure to read this piece by John Brattain at THT about an issue with significantly longer legs and sharper teeth than some NYY bruised egos.

“Record revenues coupled with a mediocre free agent class are how bad contracts happen. “

I love that quote. True? I dunno. But love it.

  • good quote
    what’s the point of the article naming guys who have been “implicated”?…what the hell does that mean exactly?…i understand publishing names of guys who have admitted using or tested positive, but if the rest is just rumor and innuendo, i don’t get the value…ortiz said earlier this year that he didn’t know what was in his water when he was younger, and that was extrapolated into “ortiz not sure if he took performance enhancers”…sheesh is that dangerous…as an ortiz fan [pre-sox, but even now] i don’t believe the bs, but it’s not good to toss that stuff out there as if it’s fact…

  • We accept players taking cortisone shots (David Ortiz)
    We accept players having highly risky experimental surgeries (Curt Schilling)
    Why are these things OK, but performance enhancing drugs are not?

  • Yeah, we do. It’s the difference between wearing a cast on your arm and getting a bionic one installed.

  • Surgery is not illegal. PEDs are typically illegal to posess without a prescription.
    That is just one very simple reason why they aren’t tolerated like, say, sutures.
