International Diplomacy … Massive Brawl Breaks Out During World Baseball Classic Between Canada and Mexico

International Base Brawl …

So much for these games don’t matter as a brawl broke out during the World Baseball Classic between Canada and Mexico. Hardly two teams one would think would get into a bench clearing brawl, but the game got a bit chippy. There is nothing like a bunt single in the 9th inning when you are up by 6 to get the Latin American blood boiling. The result, a subsequent throwing at a batter and a bench clearing melee. How many GM’s and MLB owners must have had their hearts in their mouth when they saw this happened fearing an injury of one of their key players or superstars. If more of this happens, look for MLB to restrict players from taking part in the World Baseball Classic.

The seven ejected players … Team Mexico’s Arnold Leon, Oliver Perez, Eduardo Arredondo, Andrew Albers and Alfredo Aceves and Canada’s Pete Orr, Rene Tosoni and Jay Johnson. The players will not face discipline beyond the ejections, according to a statement released by the World Baseball Classic, Inc.

From the Yard Barker:

In a chippy game that had previously involved a late takeout slide and a collision at home plate, Canadian Chris Robinson bunted to lead off the ninth inning with Canada holding a 9-3 lead. Mexico pitcher Arnold Leon responded by throwing at Rene Tosoni and missing as both teams were warned by the umpire. Then, Leon hit Tosoni on the next pitch and the benches emptied.

Red Sox pitcher Alfredo Aceves was heavily involved in the fray, seen wrestling with Tyson Gillies and appearing to suffer a blow to the head. Aceves’ Red Sox teammates were reported to have cheered at the sight of their pitcher fighting.

Another Off Teleprompter Moment, Talk About Out of Touch … President Barack Obama Booed After Thanking Boston & Red Sox Nation For Kevin Youkilis, “I’m just saying, he’s going to have to change the color of his socks” (UPDATE: WH Press Sec. Tries to Say Audiance not Booing, Saying ‘Yoooook’)

Don’t look now but it appears that Barack Obama went off the teleprompter again, the result … being booed at a Boston fundraiser.

How ignorant could one individual possibly be? President Barack Obama in his less than infinite wisdom was booed at a fund raiser at Symphony Hall when he mocked the crowd by thanking them for former Boston Red Sox 3rd baseman Kevin Youkilis. Brilliant Barack. Youkilis, a Red Sox Nation fan favorite and one the the forever Red Sox heroes that brought Boston and New England a World Series Championship after 86 years, finally breaking the “curse of the Bambino”.  Youks was traded following Sunday’s baseball game from the Red Sox to the Chicago White Sox leaving only one player left from the 2004 red Sox world champs. Thus, the Ignoramus in Chief thought it cute the maje a joke of it. Dude, let me make one thing perfectly clear, the Red Sox and their fan base take baseball seriously as compared to you and your so-called being a White Sox fan.

Being booed was probably the last thing President Barack Obama expected from the crowd at a Symphony Hall fundraiser Monday night, but that happened when the president “thanked” Boston for Kevin Youkilis, who was just traded to the Chicago White Sox.

“I’m just saying, he’s going to have to change the color of his socks,” the president said laughing.

This misguided fool actually thought he would not receive boos by his comments. Unreal, who is the one who is out of touch Barack Obama? I guess its good for Obama that he was not running for President in 1920 after Babe Ruth had been traded from the red Sox to the Yankees. I can only imagine the ignorant comment he would have made.

Keep it up Barack and you just may find a way to lose the state of Massachusetts and New England (New Hampshire) while you are at it with ignorant comments regarding Red Sox Nation where baseball is a religion.

UPDATE I: This Administration is nothing more than a bunch of pathetic liars.These idiots cannot even tell the truth when Obama is plainly booed after making a bad joke regarding beloved and recently traded Ken Youkilis. Today White House Press Secretary Jay Carney tried top tell reporters that Obama was not booed, they were saying “YOOOK”.

“There has been some really silly reporting about the president’s remarks regarding Kevin Youkilis last night. It is highly commendable in my view as a Red Sox fan that the president has always refused to pander on sports,” said Carney. “He is a White Sox fan, he owns his fandom of the White Sox. He proved that again last night.”

“Anyone who knows Boston, knows the Red Sox and anyone who was in that room last night knows that the preponderance of people shouting in response to what the president said about Kevin Youkilis were saying ‘Yoooook’ and not ‘Booo,’ for God’s sake,” Carney said.

Dude, let me first start by saying this … as a life long Red Sox fan, I think I know the difference between a “BOO” and a YOOOK”. You Jay Carney, a hired Obama liar would not. Stick to lying about politics. How sad is it that this Administration cannot even tell the truth when it comes to something as simple as Obama telling a bad joke to the wrong crowd.

STRIKE  I: Watch the following two videos and you can plainly see the difference between a “BOO” and a “YOOOK”. In the above video you can hear the crowd boo Obama. In the video below, you can hear the distinct difference of “YOOOOK”.

 Hear the crowd start to yell “Yoook” at the 55 second mark

STRIKE II: When Obama actually made the foolish remarks in the above, the egg on his face goof actually says at the 28 second mark, “I didn’t think I would get any boos outta here …” Um, Jay … Obama actually admitted he was booed.

STRIKE III: As reported at the Jawa Report, the actual transcript of the event had the audience booing.

I also want to acknowledge former Governor Michael Dukakis, who is here, and his lovely wife Kitty. (Applause.) And finally, Bos, I just want to say thank you for Youkilis.

AUDIENCE: Booo –

THE PRESIDENT: I’m just saying. He’s going to have to change the color of his “sox.” (Laughter and boos.) I didn’t think I’d get any “boos” out of here, but — (laughter) — I guess I shouldn’t have — I should not have brought up baseball. I understand. My mistake.

AUDICEN: Booo –

Baseball Great and Seven Time Cy Young Award Winner Roger Clemens Found Not Guilty of Perjury

ROGER CLEMENS … NOT GUILTY … FEDS STRIKE OUT!!!

Major League Baseball great and seven time Cy Young award winner Roger Clemens has been found not guilty  and acquitted on two counts of perjury, obstruction of Congress and three counts of making false statements to Congress in connection with alleged steroid use. GOOD, the case never should have been tried in the first place!!! Following the not guilty jury verdict Clemens thanked his family, lawyers and others who have supported him during the trial where he was accused of using illicit performance enhancing drugs. In the end the jury did not believe the US attorneys made their case, not did they believe Clemens’ former personal trainer, Brian McNamee, who the Defense stated had incentive to lie.

Legendary baseball pitcher Roger Clemens was found not guilty Monday of lying to Congress during an investigation of steroid use among major league players.

The case against Clemens involved one count of obstruction of Congress, three counts of making false statements and two counts of perjury. He was not charged with illicit use of performance-enhancing drugs, but his denial of such use was part of the case against him.

A federal jury found him not guilty on all six counts.

Separation of Baseball & State … President Barack Obama Booed at Boston’s Fenway Park During 100th Year Anniversary Speech

Doesn’t this President get it that there is a “separation of Baseball and State”?

How bad has it become for President Barack Obama as he seeks reelection in 2012? During Friday night’s game between the Boston Red Sox and the NY Yankee’s in historic Fenway Park, President Barack Obama delivered a video message recognizing the 100th anniversary of  Fenway Park in Boston, MA. Oh, by the way … Obama’s speech was met with boos. Wow, just one more reason to love the Red Sox and Red Sox Nation.

During Friday’s Red Sox game, President Obama delivered a video message recognizing the 100th of Fenway Park, in Boston. Several people are reporting that his message was met with booing.

Hey Barack, stick to basketball and leave baseball and such hollowed events like 100 years of baseball to those who actually have followed the sport, not a politician like yourself who is merely pandering. After all Mr. President we have seen you throw a baseball in your mom jeans … you really need to be no part of the game. What’s the matter, no NASCAR events on Friday night to attend to try and some how shoe you are the common man?

LOL, as the Gateway Pundit reminds us … the booing of Obama took place in the deep blue city of Boston, Mass. Looks like the folks in Fenway are none too happy with Obama’s “hope & change”. They must be racists.

BTW, we all know what libs are the owners of the Boston Red Sox. We all remember how peeved Red Sox management got back in 2004 when Curt “the bloody sock” Schilling endorsed GWB on GMA and actually went to a couple of stops stumping with Bush.   However, I actually attended the rally in Portsmouth, NH and BTW, the event was awesome and yes got to shake W’s hand. There is nothing like being 50 yards away from Air Force One.

Red Sox pitching ace Curt Schilling will accompany President George W. Bush to his campaign stops in Manchester and Portsmouth on Friday.

The Union Leader has learned Schilling will appear with Bush at rallies at the Verizon Wireless Arena and at the Pease International Tradeport.

Baseball Hall of Fame Catcher Gary “Kid” Carter Passes Away at the Age of 57

Baseball and its fans mourn over the passing of Hall of Fame great Gary Carter.

The “Kid” played for 19 years with the following teams, Mets, Montreal, San Francisco and the Los Angeles Dodgers, he was an 11 time All-Star, and finished his career with a  .262 average, 324 home runs and 1,225 RBIs. However, as anyone who ever saw Gary Carter play, he will be forever known for his fire, passion and love of the game. Carter was the poster child on how the game of baseball should be played. Sadly, Carter was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor last May.  Our prayers go out to the family and friends of Gary Carter who has died far too young. Rest in Peace.

Carter was diagnosed with four brain tumors last May, two weeks after finishing his second season as coach at Palm Beach Atlantic University. In recent months, the family hoped that, with chemotherapy and other treatments, the tumors were in check. But in January, the family revealed that doctors found several new tumors on Carter’s brain.

“I am deeply saddened to tell you all that my precious dad went to be with Jesus today at 4:10 p.m. This is the most difficult thing I have ever had to write in my entire life but I wanted you all to know,” Carter’s daughter, Kimmy Bloemers, wrote on the family website.

“He is in heaven and has reunited with his mom and dad. I believe with all my heart that dad had a STANDING OVATION as he walked through the gates of heaven to be with Jesus,” Bloemers wrote.

Gary Carter was one of my favorite players of all time, even though he was the one who started the Mets comeback against the Red Sox in the 1986 World Series. Carter was a class act.  Rest in Peace Kid.

Sports Athletes Who Died in 2011 … Harmon Killebrew, Macho Man Randy Savage, Bubba Smith, Al Davis and Joe Fraizer to Name a Few: REST IN PEACE

In Memoriam …

Sadly we lost some real icons in the world of sports this year. Among some who died were MLB Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew, WWE Pro-wrestling great Randy “Macho Man” Savage, NFL football greats Bubba Smith, Chester McGlockton, Dave Duerison, Ollie Matson and John Macky, PGA golfing legend Seve Ballesteros, Oklahoma State women’s basketball coach Kurt Budke and assistant coach Miranda Serna, NFL icon Al Davis and Boxing great Smokin Joe Frazier.

VIDEO

No death was probably more tragic than the terrible Indy car crash and the death of race car driver Dan Wheldon at the season-ending Las Vegas Indy 300. Weldon was just 33 years of age.

Sadly, boxing great and former heavy weight champion of the world, Smokin’ Joe Frazier passed away at age 67 after to battle with liver cancer.

The NFL lost its Commitment to Excellence … NFL Oakland Raider Owner Al Davis Dies at Age 82 … JUST WIN BABY!!!

More athletes who passed in 2011 can be seen here at Sports Illustrated. What is the most tragic thing after  reviewing the far many athletes who died in 2011 was sadly the amount who died due to suicide.

MLB Most Valuable Player Brian Braun Tests Positive For Performance Enhancing Drugs

RUT-ROH … Another black eye for Major League Baseball. The title should be MLB NL MVP tests + for PED.

Just when you thought it was safe to think that the drug cheating era in Major League Baseball was over, think again. Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun and the reigning 2011 National League’s MLB MVP has tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs. If the test results are upheld, Braun faces a 50 game suspension. According to ESPN, when Braun was accepting his MVP award, he already knew that he had tested positive.

VIDEO: ESPN – Braun tests positive for PED

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun has tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug, CBS Sports confirmed on Saturday.

The reigning National League MVP faces a potential 50-game suspension.

ESPN, which reported the story first citing two sources familiar with the case who talked with “Outside the Lines,” said Braun was tested during the playoffs and notified of the results in October. The report adds that Braun is disputing the result through arbitration, which is why Major League Baseball has not announced the findings yet.

MVP Brian Braun responded and told USA’s Today Bob Nightengale, “It’s BS! However, no such test result has ever been reversed. Braun and his peeps plan on fighting the test results. A spokesman for Brian Braun confirmed the positive test Saturday and issued a statement: “There are highly unusual circumstances surrounding this case … ”

Braun, however, plans a vigorous defense of the positive test. He will appeal any suspension and on Saturday night told USA TODAY of the result: “It’s BS.”

Remember when MLB commissioner Bud Selig stated that the steroid era in baseball was over? Bud may want to rethink his words. Its safe to say that any records in the past 25 years in baseball all need to have an asterisk on them as they are all suspect.

“The use of steroids and amphetamines amongst today’s players has greatly subsided and is virtually nonexistent, as our testing results have shown. The so-called steroid era — a reference that is resented by the many players who played in that era and never touched the substances — is clearly a thing of the past, and Mark’s admission today is another step in the right direction.”

If his test ends up being upheld and Braun tests positive for PED, nothing in MLB can be trusted ever again. Before any award is given, tests should be done and all information should be made public. This is getting to be ridiculous. Enough of MLB, the players union and the media allowing this to continue all so they can have exciting highlights. When will it ever end?
