Is McGwire on PED’s again ?Posted: June 4, 2010 Filed under: Dailies | Tags: AL, Allen Krause, Cardinals, Jeff, Jeffery Lung, Mark McGwire, Mark Newman, McGwire, MLB, MLBAM, MLBlogosphere, MLBlogs, Padres, PED's, Philadelphia, phillies, Red State Blue State, RSBS, San Diego, St. Louis 16 Comments
The Phillies returned home yesterday and
took some rest, more like some, gather my thoughts time, and while some
players were probably reflecting on how best to ignite the offense, so they
don’t end up with a sell out ‘boo-bird’ stadium this weekend, others I am
sure were checking out the Rollins’ Basebowl Tournament, an event J-Roll
hosts every year, I just hope he played it safe with his calf injury and took no
The San Diego Padres are in town for the
weekend, it seems like the Phillies are
getting no breaks, they just got off a road trip, which put them in all the over
sized ball parks with hot teams and now they get home to host another hot
team in the Padres, if they can break
out of this, whatever it is, over the weekend then they will deserve
every run and hit they get against this Padres
team that is currently dominating the West.
Other news in baseball, it seems that Mark McGwire has been at it
again, yep you guessed it, this time he can’t deny it, cause there is no way in
hell a guy like him knocks up a chick like his wife and then she has triplets,
all girls on June 1st, yep gotta believe he was poppin’ the blue ones. On a side
note, that I didn’t pick up on at the time and haven’t seen mentioned anywhere,
yes I know Stephanie McGwire is his 2nd wife, but she was a pharmaceutical rep
when they met, is that weird or is it me.
The most important news from yesterday around MLB, was actually here
in the Blogosphere, not it’s not the fact that the Blogosphere’s
front page depicted the almost perfect game, but at the time chose not to depict
Roy Halladay’s actual perfect game, it isn’t the fact that the Blogosphere’s
front page went through a quick change to cover the retirement of "KG
Jr.", it wasn’t even the fact that after yesterday’s post I managed to
get through the day without having my blog cancelled by ‘The Man’ Mark Newman,
who’s really a nice guy, (sucking up), or the geeky guru powers at
his disposal within the Blogosphere… No people this event almost
got my WTF award for June, it is definitely still in the running, depending on
the rest of the month, this earth shattering event happened at none other than RSBS
– I hear you ask, what other than Jeff falling off a female sCrUBS fan in a
drunken stuper, could possibly be earth shattering at RSBS
– Well I have the proof in pictures, for all of you who are familiar
with the escapades of Jeff and Al, you’ll know that both try to alternate posts
on the blog, but it seems Jeff is the only one who knows how to comment, well I
have the proof…..
….that’s definitely AL’s handtyping, I have it on good
authority and if you want to see the evidence for your self just click the link
at the end and scroll down to the 5th comment…. click
Time to get ready for the Phillies vs Padres and hopefully the
next big news story will be the Phillies breaking out of this…
……what ever it is
Good catch Peter! You are everywhere! lol.
Please take care of the Padres and we’ll see what we can do about the Bravos!
Have a wonderful weeekend!
Emma – Well we kind of had some walking assistance but we took care of them last night…
Hey I know what the Phillies are going through. it is exactly what the Cards went through earlier this season, but it seems like we have shaken it and found something of an offense.
Love the bit about McGwire and then RSBS. I have never seen Allen comment…
But then again, we have just seen 3 perfectos (well 2 officially) in 24 days, so anything could happen
Congrats on the Phillies game 1 win over my Padres. The rest of the series should be really interesting!
Even if we are a “entity” of our own devices when we post, print and throw out our multitudes of platitudes and attitudes surrounding the game, there is still an omnipotent being above us all that can change the scenery, and even make things…..disappear.
Just like you mentioned the other day about my “Perfecto” post (that was not listed on the front page), or even my Griffey Junior post pushed up yesterday, the criteria and the prose to be considered might just have more to do with the multiple times I have gotten a front page nod in 2010, and some great new blogs tryting to get readership got the pontiff’s eyesight.
Fine with me, I will survive….even without singing a
Gloria Gaynor song at the top of my voice.
haha Peter, and we took care of the Bravos!
The case of the mysterious Mr.A…? You should have e-mailed them as a Filibuster question! ; )
I want to hear Renegade sing Gloria Gaynor. Now that would be entertaining and worthy of a feature on the MLBlogs home page!
stl06- The Cards it was more an AP funk that he managed to get out of…maybe you guys passed the funk to the Reds…
ag – it’s always fun when East and West see each other on limited occasions during the year
RR – I just wanna know who your paying off to get front and center so many times… LOL
Emma – Now come on we’re doing our part under great adversity… LOL
Mike – Good call Mike, wonder who would have done that one….
Jane – something tells me the Renegade was something of a rocker back in the day… and probably still is… but hey with youtube now he could prove it right… LOL
Dude, you just caused me to spit this margarita all over my Pop’s keyboard (vacationing at his crib right now)… I cant’ wait to show this to Al. In fact, I’m calling him right now… if only he’d answer the damn phone 🙂
Sorry for this late comment post. I’m still trying to figure out my way around this site. Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated. As you know by now, Rollins didn’t bowl in that tournament so he was playing it safe. Winning friday and saturday’s games for the Phils were huge and a boost. How ’bout that Moyer? 47 years old looks pretty darn good on him. Yesterday’s game was eh! Hopefully with Cole on the mound tonight we should fare well. At least the weather is looking beautiful for this evening. Just wanted to drop in and comment.
Great post as usual.
The Phillies and Padres had great games!!
Congrats on your good standing in the top blog list, Pete.
It’s so true. Halladay got hardly any mention of his perfect game. I don’t get it.
Did I hear some of the veterans whining about not being on the front page? Wow. Selfish much?
Your Phils are solid. No worries. I don’t think the Braves can keep up their current pace, which means that they will fall back to earth soon enough.
McGwire and triplets…yep, gotta be those PEDs…
I don’t know how am I going to do it when I add the World Soccer games to the games I watch. Is not like a get a lot of sleep as it is.
Go USA! Go Honduras!
Jeff – The fact that I made you spit out alcohol means my work is done… LOL
Barb – Moyer is outstanding this season I hope he keeps it up, we could see more firsts for someone his age as the season goes on….
Cat – Your guys did okay against the Bravos, now you have the Cards, it just gets worse for your guys…:-)
Carol – Its a conspiracy… MLBAM in NY and all….
RFB – I’m glad you understand… McGwire it was either PED’s or by proxy.. LOL
Emma – I hear ya… the World Cup is going to certainly cause some problems here too… but it’s GO ENGLAND….
