2010-01-19 15:30:00 (link to chat)Have you heard the Todd Snider song on Dock Ellis? I suppose PEDs can theoretically come in many different varieties.
(ChuckR from Addison, IL)
I haven't and I've meant to, but this is a point I've been trying to make about PEDs when I say, Joe DiMaggio calmed his nerves during his '41 hitting streak by chain smoking in the dugout tunnel. Yes, he was taking a drug, nicotine. And readers go, "ARE YOU KIDDING, COMPARING CIGARETTES TO STEROIDS?" and miss the point. I'm not saying that nicotine can help you get a hit or a home run, though I would argue it probably did in DiMaggio's case. Rather, I am arguing in the specific case that taking a drug to help you stay on the field is cheating, when there are ALL kinds of drugs, be they PEDs or aspirin or antibiotics. We just choose which ones are in and which are out. That was the whole point of this week's You Could Look It Up. (Steven Goldman)

2008-10-13 17:00:00NLCS Game FourSticking with music, I'll take Sonic Youth over Randy Newman any day. Regarding music-meets-baseball, the old SF Seals (one of Barabara Manning's old bands)CD, "Baseball Trilogy" is a great record. The song "Dock Ellis" is killer. Barbara, by the way, is a big Giants fan. (David Laurila)
