When you grew up in Baltimore, in the late 1970s/early 1980s there were certain things you had to accept or you would never be able to speak at the dinner table. They were truths passed down by my father, brothers and sisters, and though I may not have witnessed the things with my own eyes, I had to accept them as the Gospel of Balmer. No quarterback was better than Johnny Unitas. Don't even try to suggest Joe Montana or that machine-gunning Dan Marino. There simply was no room for argument at my dinner table.

Baseball is a game of comparison, so it was inevitable St. Louis Cardinals star Scott Rolen would begin to hear his name mentioned with the greatest players who ever took a sharp one-hopper off the chest at third base. Brooks Robinson? Rolen is a bigger offensive threat and has a stronger arm. Mike Schmidt? Rolen is a more talented defensive player. The whole package? Well, that's why they have sports talk shows. You could argue best-ever third baseman all night. No one who saw Robinson in the 1970 World Series is going to defer to a seven-year veteran.

We'll take a break from Orioles rumors that most likely won't come to fruition -- I never say never, but I say "most likely not" a whole lot in the winter -- to look at the findings of a pretty cool book I thought would be of interest to many of you. In October, Sports Illustrated put out a monstrous coffee-table book called “Baseball's Greatest,” in which a panel of SI's baseball writers and editors looked at the best at each position in...

I've been trying to figure out a sensitive and tasteful way to comment on the following story, but it's nearly impossible. In Philadelphia on Monday, three clergymen of various denominations showed up for ecumenical pre-game ceremonies to bless the baseballs that the Phillies would use on Opening Day. Of course, you can imagine what assorted headlines said about the event ... just put bless and balls together and you should get the idea.

Philadelphia Phillies slugger Mike Schmidt will be inducted into Baseball's Hall of Fame on Sunday and assume -- in the minds of millions of fans -- that place in baseball history reserved for the game's greatest third baseman.And why not? The guy hit 548 home runs during his 18-year major-league career. He ranks among the all-time leaders in virtually every relevant power and run-production category. He was named National League Most Valuable Player three times. He led the league in home runs eight times.

So we finally got around to putting up our Christmas tree the other night and I found myself smacked by the rush of the season. As a kid, I loved popping the doors to the Advent calendar in a frenzied countdown to Christmas morning. But as an adult, I get sidetracked on the other aspects - finishing projects at work, the logistics of entertaining, the gift hunt for that person who staunchly refuses to want anything. And yes, I really am going to write about fantasy sports here. I'm belatedly grasping for the joyous strains of the season.

On deck Jim Tracy said the Dodgers will use a three-man rotation vs. the Cards: Odalis Perez, Jeff Weaver and Jose Lima. He said it "I can only let my baseball ability talk for me. It's like I'm running for political office. It's a shame. It's like I have to politick to get asked back here."
