Come on Ron……
JOSH HAMILTON SHOULD KICK YOUR A** FOR BRINGING THIS STUFF AROUND.
Ron Washington and his cocaine are dead to me.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have announced that they will be wearing their 1970’s-style yellow and black throwback uniforms during each weekend home series in 2010.
The Pirates have also announced that Lady Gaga has been invited to sing the national anthem, throw out the first pitch and wear this get-up during each of these games.
Gaga’s people have not yet confirmed that she will attend.
In a related story, rumours have surfaced that the song “Bad Romance” was inspired by a fling Lady Gaga had with former Pirate Al Oliver.
Aroldis Chapman is making a stong case to stick with the Cincinnati Reds this spring.
Chapman struck out 5 Brewers in three innings on Wednesday an now has 10 Ks in 7 spring innings.
The 22-yearold phenom’s fastball has been clocked as high as 102 MPH!!
This guy could actually be better than the next Jose Contreras or Rene Arocha.
With all the hype surrounding his prospect status and his spring training play, it would be easy for Atlanta Brave phenom OF Jason Heyward to get overly confident and carried away.
By all accounts, Heyward has remained humble and unassuming and has not taken his opportunity to make the big league club for granted.
But with March Madness and NCAA bracket pools around the corner, Heyward may be showing his cockier more confident side!
“I am the King of March Madness”, Heyward was rumoured to be shouting up and down the clubhouse. “Chipper may know the strike zone but I know my brackets.”
Heyward has apparently won every March Madness pool he has ever entered, including 1992 when, at the age of three, he called the 6th seed Michigan as a finalist.
He called both 8th seeds Wisconsin and North Carolina for the Final Four in 2000 and in 2008 he broke with his underdog strategy to pick an all number one seed Final Four.
“I love March Madness”, said Heyward, ” I just love it”.
Heyward’s pick this year : East Tennessee State.
Sean Rodriguez is on fire.

We had such high hopes for Jake Fox.
After a 1 for 19 start to the spring, he may have blown his chance to stick with Oakland A’s.
Fortunately for the A’s, they still have a dozen players on their roster that profile exactly the same as Fox.
Daric Barton, Kevin Kouzmanoff, Jack Cust, Travis Buck, Dallas MacPherson, Eric Chavez and Gabe Gross will especially miss Fox’s enthusiasm in the clubhouse.
