For the second time in two weeks, Pineda was found to be using pine tar while pitching and this time, he got busted for it. He was given a 10-game suspension, but Red Sox players said they had no issue with him using the pine tar on a cold night, only that he lacked the tact to put it in an inconspicuous area.
Cubs icons like Ferguson Jenkins, Andre Dawson and Billy Williams, and NFL Hall of Famers Dick Butkus and Gale Sayers were on hand to celebrate Wrigley Field's 100th anniversary Wednesday. Both the Cubs and Diamondbacks wore throwbacks to commemorate the occasion. It wasn't all perfect, because there was one famous face notably missing and a 400-pound cake had to go to waste. On top of that, the Cubs blew a three-run lead in the ninth inning against the worst team in baseball.
A home run is certainly better than another pair of earrings.
He even drove in the winning run. How's that for a birthday gift?
Who DIDN'T see that coming?
If a stadium had persistent plumbing issues, and both the A's and Raiders hate playing there, would YOU want to play there another 10 years? The Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority presented such an offer, but the A's deserve better. They should be able to move to San Jose, but the Giants ownership flat out refuses to loosen its iron grip on its territorial rights.
There's a VERY warm place reserved for people like this. That is something no one should ever, EVER do. Granted, there may have been other scenarios at play that weren't seen, but I agree with the author that reaching in front of a kid to snag a foul ball is just wrong. It reminds me of the lady who tried to snatch a ball from Derek Jeter earlier this year.
