Baseball Replays

July 15, 2015
By

Are baseball replays too long?  I am in agreement with the idea that it is best to get the call right over the speed of the call; however, 4 minutes is way too long.  In some of the Reds recent games most of the replays were in excess of 3 minutes. Why not have...

Baseball All-Star Game

July 14, 2015
By

As you have seen in some of my past blogs, I really have no interest in All-Star games.  Baseball is no exception.  I do not agree with the premise that the winning league gets home field advantage in the World Series this fall.  The team with the best record in baseball should get the...

Soccer World Cup

July 13, 2015
By

I am certainly not an expert on soccer, but it was great to watch the United States Women dismantle Japan in the World Cup Final.  The USA team scored 4 goals in 16 minutes which is unheard of in professional soccer.  The 5-2 final is also a rarity in a final match. Carli Lloyd...

The Art of Pitching

July 10, 2015
By

When old pitching coaches used to talk about what a pitcher was doing wrong, they would use terms like “he’s flying open”, he’s not using his legs”, “his arm angle is too low”.  Today if you are a pitching coach, you use terms like bio-mechanics, kinesiology, high-speed cameras, and military lasers.  In other words,...

All-Star Voting

July 9, 2015
By

The All-Star Team has been announced.  Again, when you let it strictly up to the fans and allow computer voting, you will not get a true representation of who is or who is not an All-Star.  People simply vote for their own team and do not even make an effort to pick true All-Stars....

Cueto vs. Chapman

July 8, 2015
By

There has been a lot of chatter on talk radio as to who the Reds will trade before the deadline.  Cueto will demand the most money if the Reds decide to keep him.  He is a starter whose contract is up the end of this year, and he certainly is a proven winner.  Chapman...

Tom Izzo

July 7, 2015
By

Tom Izzo is the head basketball coach at Michigan State University.  His team was the 2000 NCAA Champion.  Believe it or not, that is the last time the Big Ten has won the championship.  His team was in the 2009 title game as well, but did not win.  Izzo’s teams have been Big Ten champs...

Trevor Bauer

July 6, 2015
By

Trevor Bauer is a pitcher for the Cleveland Indians.  In a recent article I read in Sports Illustrated, Bauer explained his long toss theory for keeping his arm strong and preventing the injuries that so many pitchers today face.  Three to five times a week, instead of throwing on the sidelines which so many...

Mud Bowl

July 2, 2015
By

I recently read in the Lawrenceburg paper that Lawrenceburg High School is putting a synthetic surface on their football field.  For the past several years the “Bowl”, as it is known in Lawrenceburg, has been subject to poor drainage and it is almost an impossibility to keep grass growing on the field.  No one...

Roger Goodell

July 1, 2015
By

Roger Goodell’s name has certainly appeared too often in the media this year.  If you do not know, he is the commissioner of the NFL.  He is really the owner’s puppet, not a leader.  Most of his decisions seem to favor what the owners want and not what is best for the sport. Domestic...
