Albert Pujols

Albert Pujols is the featured story in this week's ESPN The Magazine. And while he is not Derek Jeter from a marketing standpoint, heis becoming more and more the face of Major League Baseball. When doing research for the article that I co-wrote with Larry Borowsky for the Maple Street Press 2010 Cardinals Annual entitled The Cost Of Doing Business, I spoke with Dan Farrell, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, and Martin Coco Director of Advertising and Fan Development for the Cardinals. Pujols is a key part of the organization both on and off the field.

The Washington Times Sports Section Dies PDF Print E-mail

The Washington Times

12/31 UPDATE: Tim Lemke is already blogging. See TimLemkeSports.com. First story is on AT&T dropping Tiger Woods.


It’s becoming an all too commonplace matter to report on: the death of entire newspapers, or as is the case with the news today, whole sections being dropped from a daily. There had been word that the Washington Times sports section was going to be folded, but it was believed to be happening in February. Today, that news came early.

First, Redskins beat writer Ryan O'Halloran wrote via Twitter: “Newsroom meeting for TWT at 3:30. Wonder what THAT'S about?” An hour later, the WaTimes Sports Twitter account used tongue-in-cheek to tweet the bad news,“It's official @TWTSports got Mike Leach'd”

I have always loved the Washington Times sports section as it added another view outside of the Washington Post into DC sports. It also has had a fully dedicated staff writer for sports business beginning with Eric Fisher, who went to the SportsBusiness Journal, and then with Tim Lemke, who has become someone I read daily, and was kind enough to feature me in several articles, including not one, but two business of sports conversations. Through Tim, I was happy to say that I not only had a respectable sports business reporter in the DC area to read, but someone that would turn into a good friend (see Tim’s farewell post on the Washington Times).

Besides Tim, I had the pleasure of meeting Ben Goessling at the Baseball Winter Meetings in Indianapolis just a few short weeks ago. There was Thom Loverro, who along with Fisher, chronicled much of the relocation of the Expos to DC, before Lemke picked up the flag and covered the business of that historic move that would become the Nationals… Mark Zuckerman… Dick Heller… and that was just the baseball coverage.

The bottom line is, well… the bottom line. There has been a parade of sports writers that have dropped to the wayside over the last few years, some of which have not returned to writing given the limited number of openings in  paid journalism these days. I am happy to hear that Lemke already has plans to blog while looking for a new place to land. Look for stories pointing to his work shortly.

To all of the 25-member Washington Times sports section, the best of luck. May 2010 end better than 2009 did for you.

Authors and Publishers of Clemens Book Being Sued by Gym Owner PDF Print E-mail

Monday, 10 August 2009 10:35

Rose and Fall CoverThe publisher and authors of American Icon: The Fall of Roger Clemens and the Rise of Steroids in America's Pastime (Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group) were sued today by a Texas man who says they falsely claimed he was "pushing" steroids to professional athletes and using his gym as a front for selling drugs, according to The Gibson Law Firm.

Former gym owner Kelly Blair, of Deer Park, Texas, alleges that the book falsely linked him to an "underground steroid network," a convicted murderer and drug dealer, drug smuggling from Mexico and Canada, and the preparation of "collections of drugs" shipped to professional athletes.

Blair also is scheduled to testify on Tuesday before a federal grand jury in Washington.

Blair's attorney, Jason A. Gibson, of The Gibson Law Firm, stated, "As the lawsuit alleges, Kelly Blair was maliciously and recklessly defamed by the authors and publishers of this book and at least one dubious source whose false allegations they published. Kelly looks forward to his day in court on this matter. In the meantime, he looks forward to testifying tomorrow before the grand jury in Washington."

The defendants in the lawsuit are authors Michael O'Keeffe, Christian Red, Teri Thompson, and Nathaniel Vinton, all of whom are reporters for the New York Daily News; Robin Dobbins, a Deer Park, Texas man who was a source for the book; and Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, of New York.

The lawsuit, which includes claims of defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress, seeks damages, exemplary damages, and attorney's fees.

The case is "Kelly Blair v. Michael O'Keeffe, et al.," in the District Court of Harris County, Texas, 11th Judicial District, Cause No. 2009-50671.

Yadier Molina Graces the Cover of ESPN the Magazine PDF Print E-mail

Saturday, 01 August 2009 12:08

Yadier MolinaWhile living in the Puerto Rican city Vega Alta, known as the Town of the Squatters, it was ESPN The Magazine’s cover athlete Yadier Molina’s destiny to become a Major League Baseball catcher. Following in the crouch position of his older brothers Bengie of the San Francisco Giants and José of the New York Yankees, Molina is now the wizard behind the plate for the St. Louis Cardinals and has been touted as a defensive vacuum, as well as an offensive threat. In “Yadier Molina Knows Squat” writer Lindsay Berra tells the story of the other St. Louis All-Star starter, and why he is one of the most feared players in the game; available on newsstands today.

Quotes:

Molina on catching:

  • “If you’re weak here, in the heart, you won’t last. If you’re weak here, in the mind, you won’t last. And guts. You have to have guts.”

Bengie Molina, starting catcher for the San Francisco Giants on his brother:

  • “I’m not going to be in the Hall of Fame, and I don’t think Jose will be either. But Yadier, he has a chance.”

Albert Pujols on Molina’s hitting:

  • “He puts the ball in play, but the thing I really admire about Yadier is it doesn’t matter if he goes 0-for-4 or 5-for-5; he has the same attitude every time he gets behind the plate. He cares about his defense more than anything because, through his defense, he will be able to help us win more. But he’ll still get that big hit when we need it.”

Evan Longoria - ESPN Mag CoverFrom ESPN:

Some people look at the sweet swing of Evan Longoria and think he's a natural. But he’s not – his talent is the result of hard work. After not being drafted out of high school, Longoria went to junior college and then on to Long Beach State before finally getting noticed. Now, at age 23, he's fast becoming a mix of Cal Ripken, Derek Jeter and Tiger Woods; beneath the gracious veneer, there's a devotion to competitive ruthlessness. In Just Getting Warmed Up, in the new issue of ESPN The Magazine on newsstands now, senior writer Buster Olneyon last season’s AL Rookie of the Year and how his work ethic and talent have made him a superstar.  

 

 

Quotes from the Article:                                                                             

  • Tom Foley, Tampa Bay’s infield coach on Longoria: "I don’t think I’ve seen a better third baseman, and I played with Mike Schmidt.”
  • Carl Crawford, teammate, on Longoria: “He impressed me from day one. Somebody must’ve schooled him before he got up here, because he definitely carried himself well. If you’d watched him last year, you would’ve guessed that he’d been in the big leagues for 10 years. He fit right in. He doesn’t want to be the guy with a lot of talent everybody hates. It was refreshing to see someone with that kind of talent that way.”
  • Joe Maddon, Manager on Longoria: “He’s one of the best young talents, and he’s someone all of major league baseball can look to as a champion of how to do things properly. He’s very capable of all that.”

Manny Ramirez on the Cover of ESPN the Magazine's Baseball Preview PDF Print E-mail

Friday, 27 March 2009 13:32

Manny Cover ESPN the MagazineEveryone loves to watch Manny Ramirez at the plate.  Even other major league players stop to watch him take batting practice – some are even distracted during the game. That’s because they can’t do what Manny does, which is hit a baseball better than just about anyone else on the planet. In Welcome to Mannywood, in the new issue of ESPN The Magazine on sale now, writer Jeff Bradley talks to teammates, coaches and swing experts to get their take on the swing savant. 

  • Sean Casey, former teammate: “If slumps are between a player’s ears, which I think they are, then Manny is slump-proof, because mentally he is always the same.”
  • Russell Branyan, Mariners: “Players were asking for video of him when he was a kid in Cleveland. And it hasn’t changed. You watch him, and you try to grasp even a little of what he does, hope it sinks in. You wonder what he’s seeing that you don’t see, what he’s doing that you’re not doing.”
  • Don Mattingly, Dodgers hitting coach: “When he hits a home run, I swear, on the bench, it’s like he never hit one before in his life. But when he strikes out, he’s still smiling, coming back to the bench saying, ‘He throws me there again, and asking the ump for a new ball.’ Man, the game is hard, but to him, it’s still a game. I wish everybody could be like that.”

MLB Preview:

In addition to the Ramirez feature, ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney and Tim Kurkjian break down all 30 teams to find out who’s the team to beat this year…their pick: The Tampa Bay Rays. Plus, a new wave of fielding analysis changes the way free agent sluggers are valued, and the experts from Baseball Prospectus on how a few subtle changes in the field can dramatically change a team’s defense…for better or worse.

Tim LincecumIn his first big league season, Tim Lincecum won the NL Cy Young Award, going 18-5 and leading the majors with 265 strikeouts – defying scouts and GM’s who questioned if the barely 5’11” pitcher with the “unusual” form could withstand life as a frontline starter.
