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.

Joey Chestnut Wins his Fifth Mustard Belt

On a day that many of our misguided readers will turn their attention to a bunch of dope addicts riding bicycles in France, of all places, we turn our eyes to the most American of all sports, save baseball; competitive eating. 

Today, our Independence Day, American icon Joey Chestnut ate 62 hot dogs in 10 minutes to win his 5th Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest in a row. Did I mention it was 95 degrees?

So as you gather around your picnic tables this afternoon to celebrate what it means to be American, and you spot your fat nephew George gorging himself on tubular processed pork anus and cherry Kool-Aid try not to give the kid a dirty look. 

That fat little bastard could be our next great American athlete.
