    Hopefully Mark can at least settle down and get into the 6th or 7th inning. With Garland going tomorrow we may need those extra pitches.

    Fed governor on Anti-Trust exemption

    Major league baseball's long-standing exemption from federal antitrust regulation has no reasonable basis, Federal Reserve (news - web sites) Governor Edward Gramlich said on Friday. "Let me say, first off, loud and clear, that I agree that there is no logical argument for baseball's antitrust exemption, especially since the other pro sports do not have it," Gramlich said during a panel discussion of the sport sponsored by the centrist Brookings Institution. The discussion was held to mark the publication of a new book on baseball economics written by noted Smith College professor Andrew Zimbalist and published by Brookings. Prior to joining the Fed in 1997, Gramlich was a professor of economics and public policy at the University of Michigan and in 1992 served as staff director for an economic study on major league baseball. Gramlich said he was puzzled that pro baseball's exemption from competition, unique among major sports that have in the past seen competing leagues, had not made it much different in terms of competitive balance, the number of teams or the ability to move franchises between cities. "I strongly agree with (Zimbalist) that the antitrust exemption should go, but if it goes, short of going all the way to competitive leagues, which we don't have in any sport, how will baseball be any different from football, basketball or hockey?" he asked. Gramlich also dismissed much of the economic benefit analysis used to build local support for bids for major league franchises. "This analysis ignores just about every basic economic postulate that it's possible to ignore," he said. But he said there was a valid interest in cities keeping a franchise. "Imagine Boston without the Red Sox. Imagine Chicago without the Cubs. What would these people talk about?" he said.

    How do we wake up the sleeping Giant?

    I am leaving the whole personell moves out of this if what the rumors are saying is true about KW making most of the moves for JM.

    How do we wake up the sleeping Giant?

    OK so to spin this a little more, if KW's interference is that big of a problem why hasn't Manuel tried to unite the team against him? That is the classic strategy that was used well by Phil Jackson.

    Dead animals found at sanctuary

    As many as 30 tigers and other big cats were found dead along with 58 cubs in a freezer at a home connected to a nonprofit animal sanctuary, authorities said. Spokesman for Tiger Rescue JOHN WEINHART, who runs Tiger Rescue and had previously been accused of improperly caring for tigers, was arrested Tuesday for investigation of animal cruelty and child endangerment, because some of the animals were found inside the house, where Weinhart lived. Also arrested were Weinhart’s wife, Marla Smith, and veterinarian Wendelin Ringel. State Department of Fish and Game investigators who raided the home also seized 13 tiger and leopard cubs, some 3 to 4 weeks old, and two alligators. A spokesman for Tiger Rescue, a refuge for former animal performers, said all the animals were cared for properly. “We don’t feel we’ve done anything wrong,” Steve Jeffries said. “We have enough food, water and shelter for all the cats.” Jeffries said the dead cubs were kept frozen because “we want to make sure there’s nothing infectious.” He said the organization had not yet examined the carcasses. Animal Services spokesman Ralph Rivers said it will be impossible to determine what killed the animals because of the advanced state of decomposition. “It was a very nasty scene out there,” he said. Weinhart, who is licensed by the state to keep tigers and other big cats, had already been scheduled to stand trial next month in San Bernardino County on 10 misdemeanor charges stemming from what prosecutors say was improper care of tigers at Tiger Rescue. The state Department of Fish and Game removed 10 tiger cubs from Tiger Rescue in November, saying the sanctuary in Colton didn’t have the proper permits for the cubs and the agency was concerned about their welfare.

    You go Jose. That is exactly the kind of thing that a manager would usually be saying, but in this case it is nice to see one of the veterans step up and say what needs to be said.

    Who is going to the game today?

    It is hard to be positive when this team is showing zero signs of life. It isn't that we are losing. When you lose and play a good game, I don't get too upset. But when it looks like they are sleepwalking that is when I get pissed off.
