Thanks from B&C
Nothin' burps better than bacon.

Nothin’ burps better than bacon.

Before we dig into the turkey and fixings, the football and the pumpkin pie, we at Bugs & Cranks wanted to share what we are thankful for on this holiday…

I’m thankful that it’s warm out. Like really warm out. I’m thankful that someone had the good sense to constantly litter and now the planet is warmer. What? It’s not warm where you are? Dang. Sorry about that. I live near water. I’m also thankful for American Thanksgiving because for some reason all the Targets in Canada are having mega sales and I need socks. Target has good socks. I’m thankful that it’s almost Christmas because I’m really into gravy and being a Jew I’m ...

World Series Champions 2014: A Book Review

I’m not really a coffee table book kinda person. Mostly because my coffee table is busy holding a box of tissues, cookie crumbs and teacup stains. But I dounnamed like the idea of a book you can put on your coffee table and pick up to shield your face when there’s a gross part of The Knick. Blood and guts aren’t for me but Clive Owen is.

Anyway, I got this book called World Series Champions 2014, which deals with the San Francisco Giants. This book is rad because it not only gave me something to protect me from the disgusting parts of The Knick but it has pictures, stats and write-ups of every game from the Giants’ Wildcard ...

Let’s Play Make-Believe

_PriceThe Hot Stove season is, well, heating up, and for baseball fans that means dreaming up trades and free agent signings involving their favorite teams. Since the Tigers are my team, I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time (like, guy practicing to become a professional video gamer amount of time) imagining what GM Dave Dombrowski might do to improve his team’s odds for a championship next season and beyond.

After re-signing V-Mart and trading for Anthony Gose, it appears the everyday lineup is pretty much set. Sure, there is probably be a little more tinkering to be done, namely finding a fourth outfielder to back up the Rajai Davis, J.D. Martinez, Gose grouping. But the pitching situation is where there ...

The Red Sox: 885 Pounds of Baloney in a 500-Pound Bag
In San Francisco: Funny. In Boston: Dumb.

In San Francisco: Funny.
In Boston: Dumb.

It’s looking like Pablo Sandoval is headed for Boston. It’s not final yet; I suppose he’s not quite finished holding San Diego hostage. But at some point today, Kung Fu Panda will become Kung Fu Pandah.

Which stinks because I like Sandoval. When San Francisco fans wore those big panda heads, it was funny. In Fenway, it’ll be irksome. Plus, Fenway Park isn’t big enough for a fan to wear an oversize head of any kind. The guy with the big panda head will have to be buy three tickets. Those 102-year-old seats were built for the early 20th-century’s tiny asses, not for our digital-age XXL cans. Have you ever sat in one ...

Chris Davis and “The Devil”
The devil made Chris Davis take Adderall. But he and God are cool now. So ... y'know.

The devil made Chris Davis take Adderall. But he and God are cool now. So … y’know.

Chris Davis finally broke his silence and … well, maybe he shouldn’t have.

You’ll recall that Davis, the 2013 home run king and the Orioles starting first baseman, was suspended in September for the remainder of the regular season and what turned out to be the entire O’s postseason. He can’t even play opening day next year. Davis talked to zero media about his suspension, which was for a positive Adderall test – his second. Until yesterday, when he opened up to a Baltimore Christian radio station.

Among his comments:

“I think the fans deserve an explanation. I think they want to know ...

Butler Frees Up A’s To Trade For Needed Outfield He(alth)lp

Only the Seattle Mariners had worse output among American League teams from their designated hitters than the Oakland Athletics in 2014.

A’s fans say the team took a big step toward rectifying that with the off-season signing of former Kansas City Royal Billy Butler. Butler is a .295 career hitter, but it also turns out, he can play a very serviceable first base -.992 fielding percentage in 394 career games. That’s only .002 below the league average for his career. Stew on that for a second.

How did the A’s get him? 2014 was a down year for Butler and Kansas City is as concerned about small-market finances as the A’s. Losing Butler means losing $12.5 ...

Stanton, Not Nats

Washington Nationals v Miami MarlinsThere was totally no reason to put use that palindrome as a headline. I just spent half an hour trying to make it fit. I couldn’t, but enjoy it anyway. And now, on to our story:

Three hundred and twenty five million bucks, huh? Admit it – when you read that number in the paper this morning, followed by the name “Jeffrey Loria,” you thought the ghost of Tom Hicks had settled in Miami. Because the words “Loria” and “smart baseball moves” aren’t typically uttered in any proximity to one another.

But this time it’s different. Loria didn’t use the giant money hammer that plonked hundreds of millions of and too many seasons onto the heads of Prince Fielder, Alex Rodriguez, ...

MLB Classics: Hard Hittin’ Mark Whiten

WhitenGiancarlo Stanton just inked a deal with the Marlins that’s just about as unfathomable as his power. Which got me to thinking of another player who was cut from Stanton’s cloth — big, powerful, athletic — Mark Whiten.

In the second game of a doubleheader on September 7, 1993, Whiten put on a display of his raw ability when he equaled two major league records in a single contest when be blasted four home runs and drove in 12 to help the Cardinals trounce the Reds.

Going into the game, Whiten had 18 homers and 75 RBI, but none of the 22,606 at Riverfront Stadium will ever forget what Whiten could have been....

Not A Great Five Minutes for the Pirates

martin-throwingIn a span of about five minutes, two big pieces of news broke in the baseball world, both with strong ramifications for the Pirates.

Most pertinently, Jon Heyman reported catcher Russell Martin had signed with the Blue Jays, and Ken Rosenthal chimed in that the deal was for five (!) years and $82 (!!!) million. The deal exceeds even the most aggressive projections on what Martin would make this offseason. Just yesterday in fact, there were reports a deal with the Cubs seemed likely at around four years, $64 million. If you’re looking for a silver lining as a Pirates fan, it’s that no sane person would think the Pirates could or should match what Martin got from the Blue Jays. ...

A Bird Around the Neck Is Worth … What?!?!

money-bag-400301_1280Wow. The Marlins are really stupid.

What part of this movie did they miss?

Alex Rodriguez? Albert Pujols? The Dodgers outfield? CC Sabathia?

Ryan Howard?

Or closer to home for me …

Mike Hampton? Todd Helton? Carlos Gonzalez? Troy Tulowitzki?

An albatross is an albatross is an albatross.

Oh my god. Giancarlo Stanton ain’t gonna cure Ebola, folks. He’s going to hit 35 majestic homers, bat .270 and drive in 90 runs every year. That’s pretty good, but even that is assuming he comes back at his full, sharp, chiseled best from the fastball that broke his face. Twelve years and more than $320 million? About $26 million per year average? For a dozen years!

They can’t be serious. People ...
