The Morning After

LSU 7 Texas 6: LSU tied the game in the 9th and won the game in the 11th to take a 1-0 lead in the CWS final. LSU has now won 14 straight games and can win their 6th national title with a win on Tuesday night.

Braves 2 Cub 0: Javier Vazquez pitched 6.2 shutout innings and 4 Atlanta pitchers combined to shutout the Cubbies despite allowing 10 hits and 3 walks. Atlanta is 4 games behind the Phils in the East. Chicago falls to 2.5 games back in the Central.

MLB News: MLB Players Union head Donald Fehr retired after 25 years. As head of possibly the wealthiest Union in American History, Donald Fehr will be remembered for Steroids, record contracts and the canceled '94 World Series. I feel like there is more to this story since this is happening 1 week after Sammy Sosa joined Alex Rodriguez as names leaked from a 2003 positive steroid test that the Union could have destroyed. Dirty Wudders will not miss Donald Fehr and is pushing for Bud Selig to join him.


  1. Great news about Donald Fehr. I blame that SOB for the steroid epidemic of the last 10 years or so. I know he's not responsible for players taking PED's, but he sure as hell hasn't done anything to try and stop it. I really hope MLB implements stricter testing now that he's gone.

  2. Greatest line ever!!!

    "The 47-year-old Weiner will lead negotiations for the next contract; the current labor agreement expires in December 2011."


  3. Clearly Fehr is resigning under pressure---players loved it when he made them rich beyond belief and protected them from privacy violations---but I suspect Fehr was still operating today like he has in the past---and I suspect he might suspect he will be sued by A-Rod, Sosa and others since he never insisted that secret drug testing results be destroyed to protect players. More will come out from those tests---time for a change---baseball need to "appear" clean even though there will always be some level of cheating!!!
