The Commissioner's office has revised Barry Bonds*' contract. Bonds*' agent says he won't sign it.

"At this time, Barry* is not signing the new documents," his agent said.

Problem is, he's obviously a draw in SanFran & the closer he gets to breaking the record, there'll be more fannies in the seats. And that's the name of the game, sadly.

The Owners don't give a sh!t about The Game, only The Green. The Player's Union is the same.

I heard on ESPN radio that last year when Bonds* was nearing the Babe the Florida Marlins sold out. The announcer said "how could anyone pass up a chance to see history?"

Don't know about the rest of you, but count me out! Why would I want to witness the greatest farce perpetrated in Baseball?

This is all true

Hey I like the * It's fitting!

The other thing is if he gets blackballed by MLB before breaking the record he would sue them. Just the way he is.

MLB TV deal gets fuzzy reception

By Dan Wetzel, Yahoo! Sports
January 23, 2007

So here comes Major League Baseball in a quick, shortsighted money grab (again), selling out its core fans (again) and telling everyone (again) how the sport ought to be consumed.

Here comes MLB, as arrogant and detached as ever, ready to limit its popular "MLB Extra Innings" package by giving it exclusively to DirecTV rather than a large consortium of cable and satellite providers. And for what, an average of a million bucks per year, per team?

That's the price of fan loyalty these days? That's how much baseball owners value their best costumers? A bad middle reliever?

According to the New York Times, MLB is close to handing DirecTV the exclusive rights to Extra Innings which allows fans to watch many out-of-market games for $100 million per year over seven years. InDemand, which distributes the package currently, has upped its offer, but, according to the Washington Times, its deal will pay about $30 million less per year.

The difference averages out to $1 million per franchise, per year or, in these days of overheated player spending, chicken scratch. Even if it was five times that, it wouldn't seem worth it to keep the product from so many fans.

According to industry figures, 75 million of America's estimated 92 million cable/satellite households (82 percent) have access to the Extra Innings package.

DirecTV reaches just 15 million households, or 16 percent of available consumers.

How MLB, which isn't talking about the proposed deal, could consider severely limiting the availability of its product a good idea at that pathetic price is stunning.

"It always seems to be a risky proposition when you're not only reaching fewer fans but raising their ire in the process," said David Carter, executive director of the University of Southern California's Sports Business Institute. "I've already seen reports that fans are not happy."

Why would they be? The current system aside from MLB's maddening and nonsensical blackout policy is the best one for fans. Extra Innings was available to almost everyone. You didn't need a dish, you didn't need to switch providers. You just paid and watched. Over 750,000 people loved it.

While some fans will undoubtedly make the change, it probably never dawned on baseball owners who live in gated mansions that not everyone can get DirecTV. Many apartment complexes and condominium developments prohibit satellite installation. Some lack the required clear view of the southern sky.

Other fans, especially the coveted younger demographic, may be in a transient stage and will not want to invest in a satellite system for a temporary place. Some simply favor their current television providers such as Comcast in Philadelphia which offer compelling original local sports programming. Others will balk at DirecTV, whose reception can be affected by weather and struggles to provide service for multiple television sets.

The reasons hardly matter. The question is: Why make it more difficult for customers to buy the product?

MLB would certainly like fans to sign up for streaming broadcasts of games through MLB.TV, but no one can, with a straight face, claim that watching a game on a computer is the same as on television.

"One thing we know about sports fans is they want to consume content on their own terms and not be arm-twisted into a way the league wants," Carter said.

Not that the owners cared about that. Or this. Or anything that has to do with you.

Extra Innings is more than just another entertainment option. For many, it's emotional. With downsizing and a fluctuating economy, Americans have increasingly been on the move, seeking jobs and lives throughout the country, often away from their childhood franchise.

Extra Innings gave many a taste of home each summer night. It offered, for example, the Mets fan who relocated to California the opportunity to follow his team and his town as if he still lived back in Queens. It provided a bond with old friends and family.

Baseball can do what it wants ours is, after all, a capitalistic society but this deal is a slap in the face to loyal fans, who the owners clearly believe will never abandon the sport.

About the only surprising thing here is the lack of surprise. This is consistent with how MLB runs its business, an anti-trust exempted monopoly of a product that is part of the fabric of America. It is a plaything and tax write-off for the rich and ridiculous.

The only hope to ditch the dish is intervention from Congress, which could strip MLB of its anti-trust exemption, which stems from a 1922 Supreme Court case that ruled baseball games were just "local affairs" and get this not "interstate commerce."

But considering how much money billionaire owners can sprinkle around to politicians, you could get better odds on the Kansas City Royals winning the World Series. Similar efforts against the NFL have died quickly.

Which is why baseball knows it never needs to reciprocate fan loyalty you have no other choice.

"The challenge is how to maximize (revenue) without turning off your core audience," Carter said.

Not for baseball owners. There is no challenge. They've long ago proven they don't care about anything but fast cash.

The thing is, just because they own the teams, they shouldn't own the game.

His little brother coming up and getting him kicked off the team by pitching so great was the best thing that ever happened to him, it seems like. When I saw him on the Cardinals after being cut by the Halos, he had a toughness and a desire that, to put it mildly, he never exhibited anywhere before...

Funny how that happened at the same moment that Kenny Rogers discovered his inner Ninja.

Baseball, video-game league partner up
'Battle of the Commissioners' to take place at Super Bowl XLI
By Mark Newman / MLB.com

Johnny Damon is commissioner of the brand-new Professional Baseball Gaming League. (PBGL)

Johnny Damon hates to face:
"Chris Carpenter. He has always had my number, especially when he was with Toronto. He can throw 95 mph and he has a great curveball. He has a great makeup on the mound. He's just tough."

Damon loves to face:

"Snoop Dogg. I've always been a fan of Snoop. If I had to lose to anyone, it would be Snoop. He's got the whole world. Everybody likes Snoop. They like what he's about. They like his music, his rapping. He seems to be a pretty awesome person."

While everyone will have to wait and see if Carpenter's Cardinals might get the chance to defend their World Series championship in October against Damon's Yankees, another star-studded showdown is all set to happen on Friday at 7 p.m. ET at The Standard in Miami as part of the NFL Players Gala during Super Bowl XLI weekend.

Damon is commissioner of the brand-new Professional Baseball Gaming League, which will have its coming-out party with the first PBGL finals on Saturday afternoon. Snoop is commissioner of the Hip-Hop Gaming League. The "Battle of the Commissioners" will be a positively electric game of "Madden NFL 07" on Xbox 360, and one guy will be the Colts and the other will be the Bears.

"I was playing Xbox 360 last night, and I beat the computer, 98-0," Damon said via telephone to MLB.com on Wednesday night. "I needed to save that for Snoop. We're going to play 'Madden,' and I think that's just a perfect thing. It's appropriate with Super Bowl weekend. 'Madden' is one of the coolest games ever, so it's fair. The baseball games have always been OK, but 'Madden' is, well, the best. I think we both kind of know what to expect. I hear Snoop is pretty good."

For Friday's exhibition, MLB.com will put up $15,000 for the purse -- $10,000 to the winner's charity and $5,000 to the loser's. Major League Baseball Advanced Media joined forces with the Global Gaming League and Boras Marketing to create the PBGL. After Damon faces "the music," it will be time at 1 p.m. ET on Saturday to decide the first champion of a league that is certain to make noise among many baseball fans.

Devil Rays pitcher Seth McClung was the regular-season winner, tying new Indians second baseman Josh Barfield with 71 points and winning the tiebreaker by virtue of most first-place finishes. A series of playoffs has been held to determine the final four, and Saturday's action will begin with the final steps to set this field.

Who's playing:

Wild-card match: Damon vs. Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder. The winner will play Barfield to determine the last remaining spot in the final four. The semifinal round will feature the Damon/Fielder vs. Barfield winner against Red Sox pitcher Craig Hansen, and also McClung vs. Steve Robison, who is part of the Wounded Warrior Project that Damon is championing in this event as his official charity.

"Johnny Damon is the national spokesman for the Wounded Warrior Project," said Robison, who advanced to the finals by eliminating Rockies outfielder Matt Holliday. "That's the reason I'm in the tournament. It means a lot to me to be in the tournament. I'm an intern for Wounded Warrior in San Antonio, [Texas], so it's important to spread the word."

Damon said he hopes the event brings more attention to the needs of military personnel who are wounded in battle.

"I am thankful for the men and women who serve our country to make sure we have the freedom to drive down the street, go to the baseball game and speak our minds," Damon said. "So that's why it's a project of mine. I think America's the greatest country in the world, and unfortunately we have people who are half-and-half on the war and on medical issues. That's OK, but we still have to support the people who give us an opportunity to be free and do what's right.

"Unfortunately, many men and women do not come back to our country alive, but we do have a lot of wounded military who went out there and did the right thing, and I feel like I need to help them out and show them that people do care, and try to give them meaning to life. Because, obviously, they go through a tough time."

Snoop's charity of choice for the "Battle of the Commissioners" is the Snoop Youth Football League, which benefits inner-city youth.

"We're both there to have fun and we're able to raise some money in the process," Damon said.

After they hook up with "Madden NFL 07", PBGL's final four will engage in an official game for the first season: Microsoft's "Project Gotham Racing 3." At stake is $50,000 in cash and prizes for the overall winner.

Other players who competed in the first PBGL season, which started in December, included: Julian Tavarez of the Red Sox, Luke Hochevar of the Royals, Dallas McPherson of the Angels, Willy Taveras and Rodrigo Lopez of the Rockies, Corey Patterson of the Orioles, Derek Lowe of the Dodgers and Mike Pelfrey of the Mets.

"If nobody crashes into me, the title is mine," McClung said. "I don't know if I'm gonna run away with it. You still gotta play the game."

The whole concept of the PBGL is to more formally bring together baseball players and baseball fans through video games, something that is happening in the background anyway. Fans now can register on the PBGL Web site, just as they can at MLB.com. In the future, they will have a chance to compete in Xbox video games against real Major Leaguers, such as these players who are piloting the program.

Damon said it's an idea whose time has come. It certainly embraces the major demographic of those who frequent this site. Just think how many users are here during a typical season to look over info, and then grab the nearest "Halo 2" controls.

"It's cool. It brings out the kid in all of us still," said Damon. "We grew up playing 'Pong,' and then the games started getting better, but now the games are pretty amazing. It's something we can play with our own kids. It's family entertainment now.

"I think the PBGL is a great thing, because a lot of fans just look at us as just ballplayers. But ballplayers are the most normal of any athlete. We live life, and life revolves around video games a lot. So I think it's a great thing. Moving forward, we're kind of letting people know what baseball players are like. People are going to be happy and interested in a number of the players we have going forward. It's something that could build momentum and get more and more people involved in video games, as well as more people involved in watching us play baseball."

But can Damon handle Snoop's moves on the virtual football field? Will it be as hard as facing a Carpenter fastball? Damon said he has plenty of practice, and that includes the occasional match against one of those typical unidentified Xbox players at the other end of a headset somewhere around the world.

"I've been on against a few people every now and then," he said. "Unfortunately, sometimes the connection is brutal, because I try to go off a wireless network. Sometimes that network is solid, sometimes it's not. There are still some kinks.

"This is something that's going to be great for many, many people down the road. Sometimes playing against a computer just isn't enough, and now you can log on and play against people as competitive as you are, who love video games as much as you do. It's amazing the technology that's going on."

Catch it peeps!

Chase is locked up for awhile
and Myers got his extension yesterday.
Was thinking they may use him as trade bait,
but I guess that wasn't the case.
Still no clue what they're going to do with their 6 starters,
but I guess there could be worse problems.
I'm expecting good things from this bunch this year
and for hopefully the next 5-10 years.

New York teams actually win once in a while. Philly teams, well, no need to bring up their lack of success, the Eagles notwithstanding.


You're no fun...let's bring it up!

My first recollection of following sports was when when I was 7 years old.

Assuming a youngster in Philly starts following sports when he's 6, and adding the 23 years since the last major sports championship ('83 Sixers),and considering the Flyers and Sixers plight, if the Phillies don't win the World Series this year, there will be alot of thirty-year olds in Philly who have never seen any of their teams win a championship.

YIKES!!!
