Pitching is such a vital part of the game, as far as winning is concerned.

On most teams the set up man has become more valuable, on others not so valuable.

Something to keep in mind — it’s raining lightly. The infield could be very wet on ground balls.

What is a drop and drive pitcher? He is a guy who drops and drives. Very simple.

So by guessing right you might have guessed wrong.

Giambi walks too much. He’s always clogging up the bases with all that walking.

As a new day begins in New York, the sun sets in Hawaii.

If football is a game of inches then baseball is a game of inch.

If that ball had more elevation, it would have been a home run.

If the double play is a pitcher’s best friend, what is a fielder’s choice? An acquaintance?

It’s better to have a fast runner on base than a slow one.

One thing about ground balls. They don’t go out of the ball park.

The reason we call that pitch up and in is because the arms are attached to the shoulder.

He wears his hat like a left hander!

Any ball that goes down is much heavier than any ball that stays on the same plane.

The blood on his sock looks exactly like Oklahoma!

You don't want to use too many statistics. The ones that apply to a July or August game won't be relevant on Saturday.

Dodgers Blame the Victim

As if the Los Angeles Dodgers didn’t have enough negative press on their plate already, here’s something to add to the ever increasing hatred piling on the flailing team.

They are saying we’re 100 percent liable. But does that mean Norwood and Sanchez, who beat this guy up, have no liability? And, does it mean Mr. Stow himself has no liability?

That’s owner Frank McCourt’s lawyer Jerome Jackson, speaking about Bryan Stow, who was beaten nearly to death by a couple of thugs in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium on opening day.

“You’re saying to the jury, ‘They (the Stow family) are saying we’re 100 percent liable. But does that mean (Marvin) Norwood and (Louis) Sanchez, who beat this guy up, have no liability? And, does it mean Mr. Stow himself has no liability?’

The Stow family believes reduces security and negligence, among other factors, contributed to the fact that Stow was beaten on the team’s property. The brought a lawsuit against the Dodgers and McCourt decided to countersue, claiming the Dodger are in no way responsible for the attack, that the attackers themselves are (we’ll give him that) and that Stow should be assigned some responsibility for his own horrible beating, and the Dodgers should be absolved of blame.

Does it mean Mr. Stow himself has no responsibility?

Frank McCourt is a bad, bad man.

He clearly was asking for it, dressed the way he was (Giants jersey), acting all suggestively (rooting for his team).

Good to see that “blame the victim” is alive and well…

If he were in Philly he’d be dead, so maybe he should just count himself lucky.

I don’t think he can count.
