  1. MLB 2009 Season

    On NESN they (Maz,Buckley) said that Kotchman will accept being a role player more so than LaRoche?.I don't know that remains to be seen. Also of note they said that the Sox have been enamored of Kotchman for a long time ya know Theos Man Crush syndrome (remember Lugo)

  4. Baseball Steroid Thread

    I found this interesting statement from Bronson Arroyo on ESPN: http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=4368436 Arroyo, who pitched for the Red Sox from 2003 to 2005, said he took androstenedione, which was banned in 2004, as well as amphetamines, which were banned in 2006, according to the Herald report. He said he gave up taking andro, a steroid precursor, when a rumor spread through baseball that due to lax production standards, some of it was laced with steroids. Mandatory testing for performance-enhancing drugs in Major League Baseball began in 2004. "Before 2004, none of us paid any attention to anything we took," he said, according to the Herald. "Now they don't want us to take anything unless it's approved. But back then, who knows what was in stuff? The FDA wasn't regulating stuff, not unless it was killing people or people were dying from it." Arroyo said he started taking taking andro after 1998, after a season with the Pirates' Double-A affiliate. "Andro made me feel great, I felt like a monster. I felt like I could jump and hit my head on the basketball rim," he said, according to the report.

    The manager at Legal Seafoods next door to Papis new restaurant told me its the same owners as the old restaurant that Ortiz is just letting them use his name.

    The funny part is everyone wants to put an 'asterisk and strip things...how about something better than that ..HOW ABOUT GIVING THE FANS ALL THEIR MONEY BACK!!!!!....who gives a crap about an 'asterisk. I know season ticket holders that spent a lot of hard earned cash to watch all these cheaters.

    The best thing about this is that Ortiz wins the game with another clutch 3 run homah !......I don't think it will affect him or the team.
  11. MLB 2009 Season

    The Sox completed the deal to send Lugo to the Cards for Chris Duncan....why would they want Duncan? From St. Louis newspaper: "Bernie Miklasz confirmed that the Red Sox will still be responsible for the remaining $13.5 million on Lugo’s contract. It’s expected that Duncan, 27, will be assigned to Pawtucket."

    Sean McAdam is reporting that the Red Sox have traded for Adam LaRoche.
  13. Frank McCourt, RIP

    That is spooky, when did he die? I met a friend last for ice cream and he asked me if I read Angela's Ashes and then he mentioned MCourt , I don't believe he knew he died?

  20. Report: Michael Jackson has died

    Well in my world (born 1962) MJ had a huge effect ,from 1970,71,72,73,74 every Christmas there would be a Jackson 5 album or two under the tree. I loved the J5 and even tried to start a fan club around the neighborhood of course not many of my friends back then were fans. I just loved the music and the fros and those clothes, these guys were on TV a lot back then I remember watching the cartoon and they even had their own variety show. And what about the Goin' Back To Indiana TV special I have that on a boot and was surprised to see that Tito was playing all the solos ....these guys were great. Here is a funny weird story from my youth back then in the albums they would sell buttons and posters on the inner sleeve that housed the record. So I asked my Mom and Grandfather if they would buy me this really cool poster of the J5 they were all standing looking down into the camera with these wild outfits ....so anyway my grandfather looks at me and said "you can't put this poster on your bedroom wall' and i am really confused and I am like why not?.....'Because it will give you nightmares" Nightmares ????....these guys were my HEROES it took me years to finally figure out why he said that and what it meant. R.I.P Michael and thanks for the great music !
  21. Mamma don't you take my Kodachrome away.

    I never understood why anyone would pay a professional photographer a cent. Until the pictures came back... Photography would be a great business if I didn't have to take pictures.....
  22. Mamma don't you take my Kodachrome away.

    Funny. I love it! "There Goes Rhymin' Simon" was a favorite growing up and the first album I got when I decided to explore Simon's solo albums a few years back... I know a couple of professional photographers and they switched to digital years ago. I can imagine that they were quite happy to say goodbye to fooling with chemicals and dark rooms! Not me I am not glad , Digital has taken the Mystery out of photography. Every client I have now thinks they can shoot .....screw em.....next time I go to the Dentist i am bringing my own Novocaine! Results speak louder than words, though. Yes, every asshole with a camera thinks he can shoot. But he can't. Not really. Put his amateur effort next to your professional effort and the difference will be clear. I don't think professional photographers will be supplanted... I agree .....BUT , (economy aside) I just bid on a job with a medical device company where they were threatening the designer with doing the photography themselves! This would not be the first time they did some photography in the back of their wherehouse a year ago. She reminded them how the shots came out which was not so great and they finally agreed to our price and hopefully we will do the job. The point being is that these clients can now reasonably buy a digital camera which will give them a 30 meg file and then have some one download and fix it in photoshop. It's totally different from the days of E-6 and 4x5 cameras clients were totally at our mercy , I mean they had no clue how it all worked.
