Very sad news today for those who havent heard:

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP)—Los Angeles Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart and two others were killed by a suspected drunk driver Thursday, a shocking end to the life of a rookie who had overcome major elbow surgery to realize his big league dreams.

The accident in neighboring Fullerton occurred hours after the 22-year-old pitcher made his season debut with his father in the stands, throwing six scoreless innings against the Oakland Athletics. The Angels ultimately lost the game, 6-4.

The team postponed Thursday night’s game with Oakland, the final one of their season-opening series.

“It is a tragedy that will never be forgotten,” manager Mike Scioscia said at an Angel Stadium news conference


Adenhart’s father, Jim, a retired Secret Service agent, walked onto the field in the empty stadium Thursday and spent several moments alone on the pitcher’s mound. Wearing a red sweatshirt, the Angels’ color, he briefly covered his eyes with one hand.

Man I hope the Braves do some damage this season. We beat the Phillies in the opening series 2-1. But it should of been 3-0. I still cant figure out how they let a 10-4 lead in the bottom of 7th inning slip like that.

I like our team this year though I hate they let John Smoltz leave to go to the freaking red sox

Im still getting use to the fact of not being in the playoffs every year now. 14 Years straight winning the division/ Playoff ball and being the best team in baseball not named the Yankees or Red Sox has spoiled us Braves fans but does make it more interesting now. Too bad we only got 1 world series out of the whole 14 year run we had even thought we had 5 other world series appearances during that time. I still think we got scewed out of 1991 with the Twins and 1996 world series with the Yankees :lespecially the 1991 one but it is what it is.

No, not the Tigers. Born & raised just outside Boston, so even though it's been 21 years since I moved to Michigan. I'm still a Red Sox man.

I know what ya mean Ryan about dry spells. I really got into baseball "after" the Big Red Machine began to dismantle.
So ...I have seen One World Series and not too many playoffs.
On the plus side, we finally have alot of youngsters like Votto/Bruce/cueto etc so maybe things are improving.

Yea The Reds have got a really young team with alot of potential. Just another piece or two added to that team and I can easily see several playoff appearances for them.

My local channel has Reds games and they broadcast 145-150 a year. (out of 162)
I am such a big baseball fan that I usually always purchase the MLBEI package where you can watch 95% of every game played by ANY team. Over the winter, I switched my cable TV provider and before I did I specifically asked if they had it. ( MLB Extra Innings). They said yes and after making the switch they dont have it.....

I really like all the features I get with this TV deal and hate to change it again. However...when Reds arent playing (like getting rained out last night)...I miss my Baseball package !!!!

Talk about being screwed... In 1994 the Expos had the best record in Baseball, six games ahead of the Braves. Then the STRIKE!! boo'hoo...
I was a Montreal Expos fan until they moved to Washington. So Ryan, you had fourteen years of being in the playoffs, and I had fourteen years seeing the Braves manhandle the Expos.
Needless to say I dont care for the Braves very much.
I now follow the Dodgers... Albuquerque (grew up there) now has their AAA affiliate, The Albuquerque Isotopes. Have you seen the Simpons episode?

haha, funny you mention this tonight about The expos because The Braves just laid the smackdown on the Expos (Now the nationals) again tonight... I guess somethings never change j/k. That does suck about the Expos as a hardcore Braves fan I will be one of the first to admit that strike saved our ass. Not to say the Braves couldnt come back from that deficit, because they were able to come back from 4 or 5 games back before and after the strike. But the Expos were a really great team could of easily prevented the streak. That strike is the reason the Expos arent in Montreal anymore.

As for the Simpsons yea I saw that episode hahhaa, people thought Homer was going crazy that the Springfield team was moving to Albuquerque, isnt that the one where he went on a hunger strike?

Very sad news. This man had quite a voice !

Phillies announcer Harry Kalas dead at 73

WASHINGTON (AP)—Longtime Philadelphia Phillies broadcaster Harry Kalas, who punctuated innumerable home runs with his “Outta Here!” call, died Monday after being found in the broadcast booth before a game against the Washington Nationals. He was 73.

“We lost our voice today,” team president David Montgomery said, his voice cracking. “He has loved our game and made just a tremendous contribution to our sport and certainly to our organization.”

Kalas was found by the Phillies director of broadcasting at about 12:30 p.m. and taken to a local hospital, Montgomery said.

Kalas had surgery earlier this year for an undisclosed ailment that the team characterized as minor. He looked somewhat drawn last week as the Phillies opened the season at home.

Kalas joined the Phillies in 1971. Before that, he was an original member of the Houston Astros’ broadcast team from 1965-70. He also did voiceover work for NFL Films and for commercials.

In 2002, he received the Baseball Hall of Fame’s Ford C. Frick Award for his contributions to the game.

Kalas joined the Phillies radio and TV broadcast team the year the club moved into their former home, Veterans Stadium, replacing fan favorite Bill Campbell.

He wasn’t immediately embraced by Phillies fans, despite being paired with Richie Ashburn, a Hall of Famer as a player, and longtime announcer. But Kalas evolved into a beloved sports figure in Philadelphia. He and Ashburn grew into a popular team, and shared the booth until Ashburn’s death in 1997.
