Ken Macha will manage the Brewers.

I thought this model of how a pitcher's fingers affect his fastball and curveball was really cool. I remember back when Pedro Martinez was in his Sandy Koufax phase, I saw a bit about him on ESPN where he showed how the tips of his index and middle fingers naturally bent back, allowing them to stay on the ball longer and give his pitches more spin.

The Phillies won the World Series last night. The most horrendous substitution of a "ph" for an "f" happens in the title of this article.

Ken Griffey Jr. is a free agent. Thank god Dave Littlefield is gainfully employed by someone else right now.

Ex-Pirate Leo Nunez, traded away for one month of Benito Santiago, was traded by the Royals to the Marlins today for Mike Jacobs.
