DJ Gallo Gets It Right

Posted by RightWingRocker on December 14, 2007

My opinion of the whole “Mitchell Report” and this foolishness surrounding Major League Baseball and steroid use has been simple: blah blah blah. Seriously, even I have found it necessary from time to time to use them. They are very helpful in strengthening weak body systems and making life more comfortable.

The thing about this list that is truly revealing is that the percentage of great ballplayers on this list is about the same as the percentage in the game in general. In other words, you can’t convince me that these drugs in any way changed the destinies of the players involved. In other words, Barry Bonds would have STILL become the Home Run King, and “The Rocket” would have still risen to the same level of greatness. Tim Laker would have no other legitimate claim to fame.

In all seriousness, it doesn’t, never has, and never will matter what any player or group of players does to enhance performance. As a competitor, you still have to find a way to win. For true winners, losing is not an option. Can you imagine going to war and giving up just because the other side had NBC? As much as we heard about Iraq’s NBC program, we still went in, kicked ass, and took names. NBC or none, the winners won. It’s the same in baseball. So Barry’s juiced. So fucking what? I don’t see Barry Bonds walking around with a 2007 World Series ring on his finger.

Truth be told, People have to lighten up about these things, and mind their own business. If Barry Bonds feels the need to get juiced, I say let him. It’s not like this stuff is without side-effects, and it’s not like the Giants did any better because of it. DJ Gallo hits it right on the head today. Read these quotes (which you can bet are all made up). They go right to the heart of the matter.

And they’re fun to read to boot! Enjoy!

Go, um … Anyone! – and congrats to Walter Ray

Posted by RightWingRocker on October 22, 2006

I’m a rabid baseball fan. I haven’t hidden that fact around here.

I’m such a fan of the game, I really don’t care who’s playing, as long as the game is well-played. I have favorite teams, but I can handle their losing.

That being said, well, it’s been said. I don’t care who wins the World Series, as long as the level of play is worthy, well, of the World Series. So far, it looks pretty good.

Anyway, I’m watching the game tonight (enjoying a cold glass of Dock Street in the process), and I enjoyed some bowling this afternoon, watching Walter Ray Williams, Jr. win his 42nd title, surpassing Earl Anthony’s record of 41. He was virtually flawless in the title match – ten straight strikes … for a 289.

Normal blogging activities should resume tomorrow or Tuesday.
