    Craig Carton in talks for MLB Network morning show

    He was also sued by Eric Lindros and the Flyers when he was in Philly on the air saying that Lindros missed a game in Feb. of 1997 because he was hungover, not an injury as reported by the Flyers. They settled the next year when Inifinity Broadcasting who owned station WIP donated money to a...

    RIP Billy C

    My nephew and his cousin went to one of those in the summer of 1993 on Cape Cod. George Foster, Bernie Carbo and Bill Lee were there among others. I don't know if it's the same one? My nephew said Lee was the nicest of all. Carbo was friendly but weird and signed everything John 3:16 and talked...

    Lou Gehrig on the Babe's called shot.

    I noticed a fairly strong New York accent in 1932. By 1939 he seemed to have lost a lot of it. Still my favorite all time Yankee if I had to pick one. What a great player and hitter.

    Lou Gehrig on the Babe's called shot.

    I have a heard a different version from Charlie Root the pitcher. He said when the first strike was called Ruth said "You got 2 left" and pointed to him with two fingers. When it was strike two Ruth said "All right you got one left" and pointed one finger with his right hand towards the...

    RIP Billy C

    If I'm not mistaken, didn't Billy C blame Yaz for the trade of Tony C? Never proven though if remember. I think he also blamed Yaz when he got traded. My Dad always believed that Yaz got Dick Williams fired because he used to complain in 69 to Yawkey about Williams as a manager.

    Super Bowl LV: What is Your Current Rooting Interest?

    Yet a lot of people who criticize the NFL for looking the other way on sexual misconduct issues still watch it and say Baseball is a joke and boring and out of touch and they hardly watch it. Other then the pitch clock and the one inning of closers now, hardly anything has changed. It's...

    Super Bowl LV: What is Your Current Rooting Interest?

    Yes I always said that to people in 2015. These guys still play but delating footballs was worse. Ridiculous! Of Goodell and the NFL.

    Um.....We both forgot Antonio Brown is on the Bucs. So both teams have bad people.

    Super Bowl LV: What is Your Current Rooting Interest?

    I'm probably older then you but my strong dislike for the Dolphins goes back to the 70's and 80's. The Orange Bowl and later Joe Robbie were a chamber of horrors for the Pats. They went from 1970 to the 1985 title game without winning there. That 85 AFC title game was almost as good as a Super...

    Thank you, Petey: Dustin Pedroia announces his retirement

    Pedroia the Destroya. Thanks Dustin. Such a fun player to watch. I live in the Philly area and he and Chase Utley a heck of a player were both top 2nd basemen of their time. I wouldn't have called Chase overrated but overhyped by Philly fans. Many of them would say to me....Too bad you don't...

    Super Bowl LV: What is Your Current Rooting Interest?

    So you would for Brady and the Bucs over your Pats??? They play next year in Foxboro. Yes he's the Goat but I have an idea a small amount of fans are rooting for Brady Over BB, and abandoning the team somewhat because they're not a good team right now. And angry at BB for letting Tom go.

    Super Bowl LV: What is Your Current Rooting Interest?

    Not sure what you meant. Are you saying you rooted for the Bills only against Washington or rooted for Wash.vs Buffalo? Then against the Bills when they they played the Giants and the Cowboys???? You couldn't root for them. That team was like rooting for the U Of Miami Hurricanes. And America's...

    Super Bowl LV: What is Your Current Rooting Interest?

    Yes. Also a great trivia question. Joe Gibbs is the only coach to win 3 Super Bowls with 3 different QB's. Theismann, Doug Williams and Mark Rypien.

    Super Bowl LV: What is Your Current Rooting Interest?

    But still you can't root against your own team. I've been a Pats fan since 1963. I was six.

    Hank Aaron has passed away

    It was his opinion which he was entitled to, but statistically wrong if you look at the other players stats. He was bias towards his buddy Bobby.

    Super Bowl LV: What is Your Current Rooting Interest?

    Even though the Bills are in the AFC East I would root for them in the Super Bowl because they never have won before. Rooted for them in all four of their losses as a lot of you probably did then and won't admit it. They are the only AFC East team I don't dislike. And seriously the Jets have...
