As another season begins, MLB faces an unsustainable future - and you're picking up the tab.
I once had a boss who told me "The only thing worse than being underpaid is being overpaid."

I wake up at about 4:15 a.m. each weekday morning to head to the studio and do my radio show on 1560 The Game (also, shameless plug, simulcast on television on Comcast 129), so many nights I go to bed before the sports world has shut it down for the evening. My tool to catch up on things when I wak ... More >>

Clutch pulls in late for the earlier home start timesI have to admit, when I saw the headline that the NBA would be announcing its 2011-12 season schedule, I chuckled out of confusion a little bit.

Res ipsa loquitur, bitchesI've never been big into crime dramas, but for whatever reason, I've taken a real liking in the last year or so to shows like Law and Order and CSI.

Those of you who listen to my show know that I am fond of placing the "occasional" friendly wager.
