Just a quick reminder for British fans that Daylight Saving Time (DST) in America and Canada takes effect from midnight tonight. Previously this has started on the first Sunday of April, but it will now be the second Sunday of March. This means that for the next two weeks (until we shift to British Summer [...]
Spring training may be a laid-back affair for the most part, but there are always a few battles for roster positions that bring a bit of tension to the proceedings.
The drugs issue will not go away, kept in the spotlight by Bonds’ chase for 755 and the odd new “shock” story. The recent New York State investigation into steroids has caught a few baseball players in its web, not least Gary Matthews Jr. ESPN today makes reference to a New York Times story that [...]
Matsuzaka-mania is off and running after he made his first unofficial pitching appearance last night. I thought I would point this out in case you hadn’t heard already. The headline on MLB.com worries me a little, boldly stating that “Matsuzaka dominates BC in Sox debut”. It bothers me because the BC they refer to are [...]
A year ago today I published my first post on this blog. Often when you read an anniversary post/article it will contain a list of great achievements: vast hit counts and countless examples of their writings being lauded by the great and good. Not so here!!! Like every other man and his dog (and the [...]
When it comes to North American sports, I’m pretty much a straight ahead baseball fan. I don’t mind watching some NFL action occasionally and I’ve been known to catch a NHL game on Five every once in a while, but baseball is the only sport from across the pond that really captures my imagination.

I do enjoy listening to Spring Training games on the Gameday Audio service at MLB.com. The radio format suits the laid-back atmosphere that the games are played in. Hearing Frank Thomas smack a homer [...]
There’s an interesting article on Sports Illustrated.com about the Astros and Roger Clemens. Everyone (well, almost everyone!) acknowledges what a great pitcher Clemens has been and it’s natural to think that the Astros would love to have him back if he decides to pitch in 2007; however John Donovan’s story puts a different spin on [...]
As the free agent class of 2006-2007 bagged their lucrative contracts it would have been easy to think that no one else could be so happy, but you would be mistaken. While I’m sure the likes of Zito, Soriano, Meche and company are quite content with their lot, another gaggle of ballplayers must have been [...]
The 2007 Barry Bonds show has officially started, with MLB.com stating that he has reported to the Giants’ training camp today. Reading the bit about him joking with Barry Zito made me feel a bit queasy! Most of Bonds’ career has been extraordinary, but 2007 could potentially top the lot. There is already a lot [...]
