After thinking long and hard about this entire era, I have come to the conclusion that I'm sure many of you already have.
I'm done with the steroids talk. I'm done bashing Bonds, I'm done bashing Clemens, and I'm not about to start bashing Rodriguez.
Put them all in. The only person associated with this era that needs to be kept out of the Hall of Fame is Bud Selig.
Bonds owns the home run record, and he is one of the five best players of all-time, though
Now, I have said for quite some time that Tim Lincecum, the "franchise" on the San Francisco Giants has deserved to win the CYA. Yesterday, he did. He is one of four pitchers to win the Cy Young in two seasons, joining Bret Saberhagen, Doc Gooden, and Fernando Valenzuela. He led the National League in K's, K's per nine, hits allowed per nine, adjusted ERA+, came second in ERA, second in win percentage, second in wins (on a team that ended the season 72-90), third in innings, and eighth
Manny Ramirez of the Boston Red Sox, apparently got into a dispute with a traveling secretary.

Since my first blog about the Yankees, they have been red-hot. They have won seven games in a row and their pitching has been lights out.

They had consecutive shutouts for the first time since May of 2005. They have equaled the amount of shutouts they threw last season with five, before the All-Star Break. they are now currently seven games over .500 and just
After my previous blog post, perhaps the Yankees got fired up a bit. They easily dealt with the Houston Astros, winning 13-0 yesterday, 8-4 on Saturday, and 2-1 on Friday. It's their first sweep since May 23-25 against the Seattle Mariners. That's exactly how they should be playing. They have a series against the San Diego Padres today, and they need to continue that same dominance against them as they had against Houston.
