One pitcher's integrity and one batter's lack of it.
Written by Schloicka

Mike Flanagan, a Cy Young Award winner from back in the day, when the Orioles were winners, pitched in Major League Baseball's two eras - before juicing and after juicing.

His long and strong career in Baltimore was coming to a close as Mark McGwire's was picking up speed in Oakland, and just as professional baseball players started seeing and hearing more about performance-enhancing drugs.

BRYCE FLORIE, SURVIVOR
Written by M.

Remember that horrible night when Bryce was injured? Well now, red the rest of story!

There's no bitterness in his voice. No longing. No regret. Just a fresh air of motivation, drive and determination - the same qualities that he exhibited to reach the top of his profession.

Daniel Island resident and Charleston native Bryce Florie, now 39 years old, is going to college for the first time, having passed over a full ride to the University of South Carolina a generation ago. He graduated from Hanahan High School in the summer of ‘88 and decided to skip college for a chance at the big leagues.

He made it.

Bill Russell - The Greatest Center Ever?
Written by Schloicka   
Tuesday, 10 November 2009

They were pro basketball's most dominant team. Never mind "three-peats." The Boston Celtics of the 1950's and '60s pulled off an "eight-peat."

The Celtics had Cousy and Sharman and Havlicek. They had the Joneses -- K.C. and Sam. But only one star was there for all 11 titles from 1957 to 1969.

Bill Russell -- the prototypical defensive center -- was a champion from his rookie season until his last game in his last championship series. Before he arrived, the Celtics had never won a National Basketball Association title.

The Case for Legalization of Steroids in the MLB
Written by Scott Dresser   
Sunday, 10 May 2009

Call me naive, but I really didn’t think Manny Ramirez was going to be caught using steroids and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that he tested positive on Thursday.

Then again, I was pretty damn surprised when a skinny scrub like Jason Grimsley got caught, too.

The point is, it seems like pretty much everyone is doing it and has been doing it, and we need to proceed with the belief that EVERYONE who played from the early 90’s until the present (and future) uses, and I’ll only be surprised when I find out a player definitively DIDN’T use.

A THIEF AMONGST US
Written by M.   
Monday, 04 May 2009

The Red Sox have a productive thief working amongst them. He works on a Diamond and watches with great intensity the movement on the mound as the pitcher slowly adjusts his glove and ball and then lifts his leg…at the precise moment, Jacoby, who is already in position on first base has already moved up to his favorite position ready to pounce….and then like a streak of lightning he takes off and reaches second base. There, he’s thinking, I’ve stolen another one for the Sox. His mind is not satisfied with one base as he continues to watch, again with precision, at the pitcher and tries another steal.
