Ozzie Guillen’s rants do not provide a particularly easy topic to broach. On some subjects, he is wildly opinionated to the point where his arguments lose weight because of his irrational defense of them. Other times, the infantile nature of his points gives observers an easy path to ambivalence: the end result may be worthwhile, but [...]
Recorded 6-24-2010: Chris Queso and Arnau Gomis cover a wide range of topics with Josh Zerkle aka PUNTE and Brandon Moskal of KissingSuzyKolber.com and WithLeather.com. We comically touch on the World Cup, Stephen Strasburg, Albert Haynesworth, both NFL teams in Ohio, Washington Wizards and more. Listen for Arnau’s hot news on the situation with Deco and [...]
Last night I witnessed a jaw-dropping baseball occurrence that had me sad for a player and an entire city. Jim Joyce’s blown call at first base on [what was supposed to be] the final out of Armando Galarraga’s near perfect game lead to disappointment for a fan base whose city needs and deserves every bit of [...]

Although sports are as number-driven as ever, sometimes the devotion is out of place. This is the first installment of a series where we’ll analyze certain records which [...]
We have seven days of baseball in the books already, and it hasn’t taken very long for some of my predictions to look like a load of crap. Let’s go right to the updated rankings after one week.
1- Yankees. Yes, the Blue Jays have a better record, but the Yanks have amassed their four wins [...]
A new season of Major League Baseball is upon us, and here at FanScribe we’ve decided to dip our toes in the sport for the first time. We hope this short preview we’re about to post turns out a little bit better than our short-lived March Madness bracket, which was dead three hours after tip-off.
We’ll regularly [...]
I can’t blame any sports fan for thinking sports media outlets are slowly turning into competition for The Financial Times. While NBA fans hear about the likelihood of a lockout, NFL followers have spent the offseason pretty much setting their minds on cherishing this upcoming season because it may be the last for a while. While [...]
