    The Stat Line of the Night — 6/1/10 — Scott Rolen

    Scott Rolen was on the St. Louis Cardinals when they won the World Series in 2006.  In fact, he was an integral part of that team.  His hitting and fielding helped propel the Cards to the Championship.  Unfortunately for Rolen, his injury woes caught up with him the next year and he was traded away.

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/5/10 – Albert Pujols

    It didn’t take Albert Pujols long to pick up where he left off last season.  In fact, it was only his second swing of the season yesterday when he launched his first home run into deep left center field.  Last year’s NL MVP got off to a great start in his first at-bat, but he […]

    Mark McGwire Declares Obvious: “I Did Steroids”

    Mark McGwire refused to talk about the past when questioned at Congressional hearings about steroids.  He continued his silence on the issue until today.  McGwire released a statement to the Associated Press today declaring that he did, in fact, abuse steroids.  Although it seemed obvious to pretty much everyone in or out of baseball, this […]

    Erika David Botches “God Bless America” At Dodger Stadium

    Total Pro Sports – Remembering the seven or eight lines that make up America’s most identifiable song does not sound like much of a challenge, but that all seems to change when a stadium packed with people is there to listen.

    Total Pro Sports – During the All-Star break much of the talk was surrounding Albert Pujols‘ great first half and the possibility of him capturing the triple crown.  He has since struggled at the plate and as a result his numbers have take a hit, but last night may have been the night the Cardinals […]

    Since When Did Opening Pitches Become So Political?

    Total Pro Sports – Since President Barack Obama threw out the opening pitch for the MLB All-Star game, there seems to have been a lot of fire thrown his way from right-wing conservatives regarding his arm strength.  Fox News was all over the story, and they couldn’t get enough of the fact that the ball […]
