Most of us on the KCAL Crew love us some baseball. Stu and Kelli are huge Dodger fans. Jimbo? He still reps his hometown Chisox. Daryl, sick bastard that he is, is mostly about the Yankees. Even though they own his Yanks, Daryl has a soft sport for the Angels too. Later on, we’ll introduce you to our favorite Angels fan, our computer guy and resident fantasy baseball geek, Gentle Ben.
The start of baseball season means our favorite season – summer – is just around the corner. That, amigo, is reason for serious celebration. Part of the fun of baseball season is also the this little fact: When you take 25 money- and hormone-greased male athletes on the road for a total of about three months over a six-month season, stuff happens.
We get down to serious baseball talk – well, as serious as the KCAL Crew gets – tomorrow. For now, let’s set the stage for the mayhem that will ensue. For instance…
From this Dodger fan’s perspective, the only good thing about the San Francisco Giants winning the pennant is that Barry Bonds wasn’t there to get a ring. Judgment day has arrived for the player with the most home runs.
This totally isn’t about O.J., but he is the poster child for jocks gone bad.
That made us wonder about other professional athletes we either never heard of, or forgot a long time ago, who haven’t exactly put the kind in mankind. The question is: How many antisocial jocks can we find? The answer is…lots! Here are a few lowlights for you. Some of these are pretty icky; a few are just plain bizarre.
Two deserving players are heading to the Baseball Hall Of Fame. Can you guess who the first 5 players to be inducted were? What player keeps appearing on the ballot but will never make it?
Russell Martin is set to become a Yankee. Pending a physical, our Dodgers catcher is joining New York. When I [...]
You might have seen the bit popping up on the interwebs where Steve Garvey is saying he wants to buy the Dodgers and has a group together to actually do it. If you, like us, grew up watching the ’70′s and ’80′s Dodgers and the longest-lived infield in baseball history, Steve Garvey as owner might sound great. Here’s a different perspective on that.
With baseball’s annual holiday shopping bonanza known as the Winter Meetings now underway, we thought we’d pause and reflect and where the locals have gone since the rather unsatisfying end to the 2010 season. As for the Dodgers, baseball’s Divorce Of The Century – okay, we’re barely a decade in, but still… – isn’t going to end soon.
The Angels have been, shall we say, a bit restrained to this point.
Haha! I don’t think any fan of the Dodgers or Angels would poo-poo Jeter being on their team! Oh hell [...]
Hey, I may not be a Dodger fan, but dammit I am a baseball fan! And I think we all [...]
