Who Makes Up Your “Mt. Rushmore of Hatred?”

Hatred. We all have it, whether we admit it or not. As sports fans, we’re fueled by hatred. There wouldn’t be rivalries if it weren’t for hatred. We wouldn’t get so emotional after big games, win or lose, if it weren’t for hatred of the opponent. This week, two of the world’s most hated athletes […]

Baseball’s Power Outage

While most of the headlines since Jose Canseco’s revelations in Juiced have been reserved for steroids, amphetamines have long been influential in baseball, if a little less glamorous in the media. Part of this, as ESPN’s Mark Kreidler said when the ban was first discussed, is because “amphetamines are so old school that many observers […]

Canseco: Current Hall-of-Famer Used Steroids

Book Review: “Asterisk” by David Ezra

If you know me at all, you know two simple things: Adrian Beltre is only worth owning during a contract year and second but most importantly, I HATE BARRY BONDS.

A photo-shopped image of Roger Clemens, Mo Vaughn, and Jose Canseco during their days with the Red Sox. A man told the NY Daily News that he has a photo of Roger Clemens with other MLB players at Jose Canseco’s infamous party in 1998. The man, then 11, took the picture and has held on […]

Standing Behind Clemens

For as long as I can remember watching Red Sox baseball, I only had room in my heart for one player. Whenever a player leaves the Sox, I usually switch my spotlight to another. In the past, this spot has been held by former outfielder Trot Nixon and looks to be soon taken over by […]

More Drugs in Baseball

Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds, the best pitcher and best hitter, in all of baseball, maybe ever, have proven how rampant drugs are in baseball. It’s disgusting. And horrible for baseball. What other sport has had this level of disgrace?.. And survived? And it all comes back to Canseco. What if Canseco and others were […]

Was Roger Clemens at Jose Canseco’s House Party in 1998?

One thing that is really different in the testimonies of Brian McNamee and Roger Clemens is whether Roger Clemens attended a 3-day house party at Jose Canseco’s house during a 3-game series (June 8-10) between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Florida Marlins in 1998. McNamee swears he saw Roger, Roger’s wife, Roger’s nanny, and […]
