Ranger Sox talks continue

April 1, 2010

The Texas Rangers still show an interest in Boston Infielder Mike Lowell but to what degree is uncertain. Before the season Lowell had been traded to the Rangers in a deal that had Boston eatting a large portion of his contract. The deal was canceled after Mike failed his Physical needing surgery on his thumb. Lowell has since recovered and although has taken some criticism in the spring for his lack of mobility. The 35 year old is starting to show some signs of life with the bat.

I believe that a deal with Texas will eventually get done but i suspect they will get Boston to eat almost every last dime of his contract. Boston will eventually cave because nobody else is interested and they will lose it all if they just release him. Its just a matter of when.

why does ESPN bug me so much

August 11, 2009

espn devil copyOver the years ESPN and I have had a love hate relationship. Their site does provide most of the breaking news in a well written format. I even link to their articles on a regular basis, but here is where ESPN and I part ways.

1. Their game announcers are horrible.When there is a game on ESPN that I want to see I will either hit the mute button or turn on the radio and listen to whomever the home teams talent is call the game.

2.They have a huge Red Sox bias that is evident to everyone who is not a Red Sox fan. They threw Alex Rodriguez under the bus when he was caught cheating and became a apologist when it happened to David Ortiz.

3. Worst of all is the Prostitution of the news. Yes down right Prostitution. The ESPN insider scam is just that. They take peoples money in order to let them read parts of the news and their opinion. Most of the time their opinions aren’t worth the paper they are printed on much less a monthly fee to become an “Insider” Buster Brown Olney is ridiculous I would never pay a dime to read the garbage he peddles and Keith I fought the Law and the law won isn’t much better. The only one of them that is worth reading is Peter Gammons and he is starting to show his age with some of his beliefs. Such as the belief that If Pedro can become a quality 6 inning starter for the Phillies. If Pedro becomes a quality 6 inning guy for the Phillies I will run naked down the street, but it just isn’t going to happen. Pedro has not won double digits sense 2005 he is 37 years old and he has a bum shoulder. He like Glavin and Smoltz are done. Pedro is in my mind a Hall of Famer but should go down with dignity the same way Mike Mussina did, who may not be a HOFer the jury is still out.

Bottom line ESPN is ok for some things but I would never recommend paying money for it when I can go to CBS Sportsline or Yahoo sports for the same great coverage for free. If you haven’t already checked out the new MLB Network on TV you should do so I’m hooked.

Report: Glavine may file grievance after release

Report: Glavine may file grievance after releaseGLAVINE C DCS

The thought that this was about anything else besides money is ludicrous. He was pitching great in his rehab assignments not having allowed an earned run. Them saying that they thought his comeback was unsuccessful doesn’t stand weight against the actual stats of his rehab games which were fantastic. These money hungry whores that I used to route for have gone to far and I hope that Tommy Glavin sticks it to them.

We got your back Tom Glavine

June 3, 2009

As Tom Glavine and the BTFP readers can see. Mike and Genevosey both have Tom’s back. The Atlanta Braves are Money Whores and they have disgusted us so much today we both wrote about Tom’s dilemma at the same time.

Tom we both hope some team signs you soon, hopefully in the NL east so you can rub their greedy faces in it with a no hitter.
