Have a post up on Baseball Digest Daily about my conversation with Royals’ starter Brian Bannister today. Read all about it there. I just wanted to restate my thanks for Brian for taking extra time out to talk to me for a bit. Also Brian says he’s going to be doing a semi-regular thing on […]

According to this report federal witness par excellence, Brian McNamee, is saying he injected Roger Clemens’ wife with HGH before a Sports Illustrated swimsuit photoshoot in 2003.

As you probably know, the Boston Beaneaters went up one game to nil nothing over the Denver Bears in the 2007 World Series with a 13 to 1 victory (the Beaneaters donated one of their two extra points to the Bears in a fine show of sportsmanship). I always ponder DIPS whenever I watch an […]
