World Series: What Are The Odds?


    According to, it’s even money on the Royals and Mets capturing the World Series. If we were betting, we’d take KC. That’s the ticket. Royals in 6.
    Besides, we’re rooting for our boy “Volky” (Edinson Volquez, pictured above), who we developed an excellent relationship with during his stint with the Padres.

    This, ahem, gem was taken at a “white party” at the Sosa residence over the weekend. Took us a few minutes to even notice Sammy in the photo.

Signs Of The Times

Red Sox fans celebrated in the streets Wednesday night after Boston wrapped up the World Series with a 6-1 romp over the St. Louis Cardinals at Fenway Park. David Ortiz (was there any doubt?) was named MVP after a sizzling hitting exhibition.

Split Decision?

    Mike Scioscia and the Angels haven’t sniffed the post-season in 4 seasons. Strangely, he keeps his job. Don Mattingly? He led the Dodgers to within 2 wins of the World Series despite a ton of injuries and guided the club to 1 of the best regular-season runs in MLB history. Yet, L.A.’s finest hasn’t decided whether Mattingly will return? And Ned Colletti holds a news conference and says “we’ll talk about it?”
    That’s piss poor leadership at the top. It doesn’t get much worst than that.
    Furthermore, Mattingly was 1 of the most media friendly managers I covered this season. He frequently joked with writers and broadcasters during media sessions before games and usually answered practically any question he was asked.
    I know many Dodger fans, area writers and columnists believe he should be axed for making some questionable decisions during the season and in the playoffs. Just don’t count me as 1 of them. Considering the injury circumstances and what they had to overcome, Mattingly should be applauded for his efforts.

Standing On The Verge

    If you’re a Cardinals’ fan, you’ve been here before. Like last year, when the Birds blew a 3-1 lead and lost to the Giants, who went on to win the World Series.
    Dodgers’ fans are hoping for a repeat of that farce. Game 5 is Wednesday afternoon at Dodger Stadium.
    Meanwhile, we’re still waiting for Matt Holliday’s blast to land.

When You’re Hot, You’re Hot

    The Dodgers are 38-8 over the past 46 games. No Major League club has been on a roll such as this 1. After sweeping the Rays over the weekend, the Dodgers prevailed again by rallying for a 4-2 victory over the Metropolitans.
    Imagine if they win it all Angels’ fans. I know, your worst nightmare. But the Angels have provided a huge assist by refusing to re-sign Zack Greinke and allowing him to go to the Dodgers. Instead, the Angels wasted their money on drama king Josh Hamilton. How’s that working out?

The Write Stuff

    When AP reporter Steve Wilstein wrote about a little bottle in Mark McGwire’s locker 15 years ago, he had no idea the can of worms he opened. But Wilstein’s piece opened the curtain to PED use among Major League Baseball players.

By Josh That’s A Nice Addition, But It Doesn’t Add Anything To That Shaky Pitching Rotation

    The Angels again make the splash of the offseason, signing former Rangers’ slugger Josh Hamilton today to a reported 5-year, $125-million deal. That’s all fine and dandy, but the Angels’ suspect pitching still has plenty of holes in it.
    And someone, anyone, please explain to us the addition of Joe Blanton.
