    Just wrong on so many levels.

    No, it’s very, very right.

    Classic, Mac.

    nice. I had to explain it to my office mate. Not sure if she gets it. Unfortunately, we all get it too well.

    RobBroad4th Says:

    Very funny and sadly accurate.

    csg Says:

    under Ben maller’s rumors there is an article stating that MLB might suspend Pedro for cockfighting. I cant read the article, but its there

    Smitty Says:

    I heard Hampton pulled his oblique taking a dump.

    Mac Thomason Says:

    I don’t think I’m going to dramatize that one.

    “Oh, I hit my head on the table!”

    Very Python! Thanks, Mac.

    And I meant to congratulate you sooner on your move into the acting/video realm, but I’ve been living my own drama called, “Death of a Motherboard.”

    Jeff K Says:

    So was the snapping sound a breaking radius, ulna, wrist, etc. or an ulnar collateral ligament? If it’s just a bone, then he’ll need to injure something else within just a few weeks.

    mike hampton Says:

    Dang it…I hurt my elbow while watching this video. I should be ready in time for Opening Day, though. Maybe.

    urlhix Says:

    Nice one, Mac. Gave me good laugh with a mouth full of ham sandwich.

  12. 12
    Another Alex R. Says:

    This just in: Mike Hampton injured his tongue in a ham-sandwich related accident. He is believed to be out until July.

  13. 13
    Smitty Says:

    My barber said Hampton’s right arm is jelious of his left so he will have TJ on the right arm on Thursday and will be ready to come back around August 34th.

  14. 14
    Smitty Says:

    Mac, I think you should do a weekly blog

  15. 15
    td Says:

    You guys will all be sorry when Hampton pitches 200+ innings with an ERA below 3!

    Steve Avery
    Brian Jordan
    Craig Wilson
    Raul Mondesi
    Shane Reynolds
    Bob Horner

    ububba Says:

    If Hampton does that, we win 95+ games.

    Hate to say it, but Pedro has a better chance of doing that for the Mets—y’know, like 11-percent to 0.1-percent.

  17. 17
    td Says:

    Actually, I would give Rickey Henderson a better chance of signing with a team at mid-year and winning the stolen base title than I would for Hampton to pitch over 200 innings.

  18. 18
    Smitty Says:

    Steve Avery has abetter chance to throw 200 innings

  19. 19
    Clarke Says:

    David lee Roth has a better chance of throwing 200 innings

  20. 20
    Stu Says:

    Cy Young has a better chance of throwing 200 innings.

  21. 21
    Mike Says:

    This is a fun game. Hmmmm, lets see, Axl Rose has a better chance of throwing 200 innings.

  22. 22
    Mac Thomason Says:

    Speaking of David Lee Roth, I was watching the “Jump” video once and it occured to me that he probably would have made a fine wide receiver.

  23. 23
    ububba Says:

    Actually, Hampton winning the Cy Young is an even bet with Axl ever putting out another album.

  24. 24
    Mac Thomason Says:

    What will we hear first, “Chinese Democracy” or “Hampton finishes the first”?

  25. 25
    CJ Says:

    Which comes first: 1) the release of Chinese Democracy or 2) Hampton throwing 200 innings – total?

  26. 26
    ububba Says:

    Democracy in China will happen before the release of “Chinese Democracy.”

  27. 27
    Another Alex R. Says:

    Which comes first: Braves fans forgiving Mike Hampton for his injuries, or rock fans forgiving Axl Rose for all his sins?

  28. 28
    JC Says:

    Bob Rathbun is having a conversation just outside my office door. Man, that voice is unmistakable. I popped out and said hello, but what else could I say?

  29. 29
    sansho1 Says:

    Time for an oil change?

  30. 30
    Mac Thomason Says:

    I may in the minority, but I liked Rathbun. Torborg was a terrible partner for him, and played into his faults, but he was pretty good with Downing and Paciorek, who weren’t exactly ideal commentators.

  31. 31
    Mike Says:

    All that may be true about Axl Rose, but if Guns ‘n Roses ever does a reunion tour, I’m going.

  32. 32
    JC Says:

    I thought Rathbun was underappreciated largely because his partners were not that good. To be good with Torborg and Paciorek, that takes talent.

  33. 33
    Dix Says:

    Bob Dole has a better chance of throwing 200 innings.

  34. 34
    Smitty Says:

    Boog is a huge upgrade over Rathburn. Rathburn should stick with calling the Lincoln, Jefferson, Washington, Adams, Piolot Financial Raycom SEC fourth best basketball GAME OF THE WEEK!

  35. 35
    Smitty Says:

    Jim Abbot has a better chance of throwing 200 innings with his right arm.

  36. 36
    csg Says:

    just scrolling through the post and I have a recap.

    Pedro is playing with cocks again

    I have a great chance of throwing 200+ innings

    and Hampton got injured while receiving an oil check

    good day so far…

  37. 37
    Dix Says:

    How’s he gonna hold the ball Smitty? Jeez…

  38. 38
    Smitty Says:

    Balance it on the stub, and sling it!

  39. 39
    JC Says:

    Don’t get me wrong, I love Boog.

    braves14 Says:

    Sciambi >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Rathbun

  41. 41
    braves14 Says:

    Dan Quayle would become president before Mike Hampton pitches 200 innings.

  42. 42
    mike hampton Says:

    UPDATE: guys, I injured my left hand while scrolling through these posts. I should be ready by early May if all goes well.

  43. 43
    Smitty Says:

    Early May is code for August 34th.

  44. 44
    Justin Parker Says:

    or contract insurance claim

  45. 45
    CJ Says:

    The Jim Abbott comments might have gone a bit far – then again, I snickered when I read the stump comment. So like I say to my best friend whenever we make inappropriate comments to one another, “Well, I guess I’ll see ya in Hell (where, by the way, it will be snowing before Mike Hampton throws 200 innings).”

  46. 46
    Dix Says:


    You say “Well, I guess I’ll see ya in Hell (where, by the way, it will be snowing before Mike Hampton throws 200 innings).” to your best friend whenever we make inappropriate comments?

    c. shorter Says:

    To add to the shocking news of the Hampton Email Injury Roundup, John Rocker made controversial statements about steroid use today.

  48. 48
    c. shorter Says:

    In more stunning news from the world of sports — Latrell Spreewell is having financial trouble.

    barrycuda Says:

    i just turned down two free tickets to go see van halen in jacksonville. i figured with all the new security, they wont let me bring in a bag of wine bottles to throw at d.l. roth, so why bother going. my hearing has suffered enough.

    Dan Says:

    under Ben maller’s rumors there is an article stating that MLB might suspend Pedro for cockfighting.

    How can you suspend a guy for doing something legal in his home country? Something that is not explicitly banned by MLB?

    Cockfighting is also legal in this country in some places I believe. Louisiana and….New Mexico?

  51. 51
    csg Says:

    #50 – I dont see how MLB could do it. The Mets I guess could because they are his employer, but it wont happen

  52. 52
    Sam Says:


    Wow, maybe he did need to feed his family. :P

  53. 53
    Mac Thomason Says:

    IIRC, cockfighting was legal in Alabama until recently, but you weren’t allowed to bet on it. Riiiiiiight.

    Players get suspended for things that aren’t illegal, under the “interests of the game” clause. The union, of course, will fight that, and the union, of course, will win.

  54. 54
    Dan Says:

    Mets sign Tony Armas, Jr.

  55. 55
    Sam Says:


    Hm. Sounds like they don’t want to run into the situation they did last year.

  56. 56
    barrycuda Says:

    let me get this straight…………its legal for people to fight and try to maim each other but illegal for a couple of mean roosters to duke it out? ah,what the hell…………..suspend pedro anyway.

  57. 57
    Alex B. Says:

    hey, while you’re at it, suspend everyone on the mets.

  58. 58
    Another Alex R. Says:

    Did the Mets get Armas because they think Pedro and Duque will want company on the DL?

  59. 59
    Marc Schneider Says:


    The difference is the roosters don’t have a choice in the matter.

  60. 60
    Dan Says:

    They’re roosters….who really cares?

  61. 61
    Stephen Says:

    Mac–that video is pretty funny…

    Does anybody know or remember or care for that matter: Was it Lonnie Smith that once got injured from biting into a super hot pop tart?

  62. 62
    barrycuda Says:

    59……………..cattle dont get a choice either

  63. 63
    beedee Says:

    meat is murder

  64. 64
    Marc Schneider Says:

    @60, 62,

    Well, then, why do we care about dogs? Why not start a TV show devoted to blowing up cats or something? Probably would get good ratings. It’s one thing to kill animals for food–the entire animal kingdom does that–and another to kill them for sport, especially torturing them. I don’t get the “sport” in hunting deer just for the hell of it and I don’t get the “sport” in watching roosters fight. I realize, however, that this position makes me a bleeding heart liberal on this blog.

  65. 65
    barrycuda Says:

    who says we care about dogs? mike vick has a better chance of throwing 200 innings this year than mike hampton.

    I finally got around to watching this and all I have to say is: LMAO!

    Fielding Goodney Says:

    Hey, Rob Neyer links to your “film” on his ESPN blog. Warns us not to drink milk while watching.

    Steve C Says:

    Yeah, but al least he still gets paid…What a life

  72. 72
    Cubs Hate Me Says:

    Kerry Wood read this blog and felt a twinge in his elbow. He is looking to rehab with Mike Hampton and be ready by the August 34th deadline.

  73. 73
    Mark Prior Says:

    Kerry and Mike got nuthin’ on me!

  74. 74
    Dustin Says:

    HAHA, made me giggle.
