Clemens, 360 degrees of cheater

Well well, MLB's most notorious a hole has just been busted for having a decade long affair.  This couldn't be happening to a better guy.  I don't really care about someone elses personal business, but it just goes to show that this guy is a cheater in every aspect of his life.  Cheater in his profession, cheater in is personal life.  Looks like the Rocket's world is crumbling.

Karma sucks eh Roger.

Meet the Mets

With the Mets adding Johan Santan yesterday the talking heads are declaring them the champions of the NL.  Johan Santana is a great pitcher, he will not doubt continue to dominate at Shea.  But is this the final piece that the Mets have been missing the past 7 years, could he take them back to the World Series?  The Mets do have the most potent offense in the NL.  David Wright and Carlos Beltran provide not only power but have respectable speed as well.  Jose Reyes is one of the most exciting players in baseball and combines a hearty OBP with amazing speed.  For all intents and purposes, if he's on first, he's on second.

Offense was not the problem with the Mets last season, the absence of pitching was.  With the departure of Tom Glavine and the addition of Johan Santana the rotation is better, but the remaining four pitchers will no doubt be as hittable as they were last year.  For all the teams in the NL thinking about mailing it in, think again...if your team can pitch and field on an above average level there is still hope for you.

Bud Selig signs extension

Bud Selig signed a contract extension through 2012 yesterday, giving him the second longest tenure as commissioner in MLB history.  Quite an accomplishment for a man who has only looked out for the interest of the owners his entire reign.  Isn't it time for a change in baseball, wouldn't it have been a fitting time to end Bud Selig's career as commissioner with the Mitchell Report serving as somewhat of a conclusion to the steroid era?

Baseball is more popular today and makes more money than it did when Bud started.  The popularity has nothing to do with anything that Selig did however, and really his only claim for the betterment of baseball was the addition of the wildcard.  And is the fact that baseball now rivals the NFL in terms of revenue really something that we as fans should be happy about?  I can tell you that during the past ten years the Diamondbacks ticket prices go up what seems like every year, as do the beer prices.  Maybe the food does too, but I have been hit harder by the beer prices.  I just would have hoped that the powers that be would have thought to themselves it is time for some new blood, but it is after all the owners that are voting and Selig is always looking out for their best interests.
