Pudge, Rock, And Bagwell To Cooperstown

Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports
Add Three More Names To The List...
Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

The answer to the question is: Tim Raines, Jeff Bagwell, and Pudge Rodriguez...

The analysis of one of the three ahead of time, thanks to our friends at MLB Network 

The guy with one of the more weird batting stances in the game, but still cranked out more than 400 career home runs

((HT: ESPN/MLB))

And one of the best at his position in the history of the game, thanks again to MLB

Here are the numbers: Bagwell drew 86.2 percent and Raines got 86 percent. Rodriguez had 76 percent- getting four more votes than the necessary 332 of 442.

Then, the next part of the discussion comes to who didn't make it to the Hall of Fame: Trevor Hoffman was five votes shy and Vlad Guerrero was 15 short. The third part of the discussion comes to the PED-era guys and their growth pattern- Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens both got close to 54-percent of the baseball writers. It's more than last year, but still not where they want it to be.

Violent Rider vs. Siena game ends with Coach Shaking Hands with Imaginary Players

The headline doesn't really explain this very well does it? But how do you describe the end of Tuesday nights Rider vs. Siena game which ended with a brawl---followed by Rider walking off the court after the buzzer without shaking hands??

Above is the fight which set off the strange sequence of events. It comes towards the end of Siena's 78-68 win over Rider on the Broncos home court. It shows---not incredibly clearly--though clear enough--Rider's Anthony Durham punching Siena's Marquise Wright upside the head. It also shows Rider coach Kevin Bagett and Siena coach Jimmy Pastos exchanging words and it kinda looks like threats....

Fights unto themselves unfortunately happen during basketball games. Not a lot--but they do happen. This fight left tensions high, very high as the buzzer sounded and that's where things got strange.

After the buzzer rang out, Rider skipped the traditional handshake line leaving the Saints on the court by themselves. Siena coach Pastos then decided he didn't want to skip the handshake so he did it anyway, even though nobody was there....

Bagett called a timeout with 10 seconds left in the game and with the game essentially over. Reportedly it was a message to his players to skip the handshake line and walk off the court. 

Rider coach Kevin Baggett told ESPN on why he pulled his team off court: "I decided to not shake hands because I didn't want anything to escalate again between the teams. That's my prerogative to protect my team whether anyone else thinks it's good sportsmanship or not." Siena coach Jimmy Patsos responded: "That's a pretty good reason," Patsos said. "I like Kevin a lot, and respect his decision."

Jeff Goodman, ESPN Insider

After the game Pastos was upbeat and would not say anything bad about Rider or their coach....

And while Bagett eventually spoke to ESPN, he didn't do postgame at the arena...Pastos was still doling out compliments...

Expect a suspension for Durham and Pastos being on full rotation for all the sports shows and viral videos this week...






Dallas Stars Jamie Benn attacks multiple hockey sticks during game

By most accounts, Monday night was not kind to the Dallas Stars or their equipment manager. The Stars were easily dispatched by the Buffalo Sabres 4-1 in Northwest New York in a game where the Stars got very frustrated.

Okay, so maybe the entire team wasn't frustrated. Jamie Benn however was angry. Very angry. 

The Stars team Captain got so mad that he broke his hockey stick while on the ice. He then sat down on the bench only to get pissed off again and break a couple more sticks. Hopefully the sticks were his and did not belong to a teammate....but either way, a headache for the Equipment guys...and an easy video to use on ye 'ol Sports Blog...
