Mike Schmidt came under fire for two comments he made during a Philadelphia Phillies broadcast on Sunday. (Reuters) Baseball Hall of Famer and broadcaster Mike Schmidt came under fire from some fans Sunday after an attempted joke was deemed inappropriate and sexist. The Philadelphia Phillies TV broadcaster made two cringeworthy comments about his wife and the #MeToo movement, according to the New York Daily News. “I’ve got a dishwasher at home myself: my wife,” Schmidt said. “That was bad, huh?” Schmidt attempted to clarify his comment, but ended up throwing in a dig at the #MeToo movement. “Actually, I do the dishes most of the time ... You’re staring at me,” Schmidt said. “’Me Too’ movement, where does that fit in?” Many social media users immediately took to Twitter to criticize Schmidt's remarks. “Mike Schmidt is a clown and an embarrassment,” one user wrote. “Get … [Read more...] about Hall of Fame baseball player Mike Schmidt under fire for inappropriate ‘Me Too’ remarks during game

Before a Giants-Reds spring training game, new Giants pitching coach Curt Young hung out in the dugout a long time waiting for Bryan Price to be available across the field. Eventually, Young got a chance to talk with the Cincinnati manager and thanked him for the opportunity to work for the Reds in the second half of last season as a minor-league pitching evaluator, after the A’s fired him in June.

Look, I am sincerely happy for Mitch Richmond. And please don’t pelt me with any of his bobblehead dolls for saying what I am about to say. However, when Richmond’s selection to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame was announced Monday . . . well, it was another illustration of why the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame is not in the same class as the other halls of fame in the major sports. Richmond was an excellent basketball player. I’m not feeling that he was a Hall of Famer. He was a six-time All-Star but was never a First Team NBA selection, which means he was never among the best five players of his era. He had great, fun seasons for the Warriors and the Kings but his only NBA championship occurred in when he dribbled out the clock for the Lakers in 2002 after playing very few minutes. He did win an Olympic gold medal in 1996 but again, wasn’t one of the bigger stars on that USA team. So, yes. Richmond represented … [Read more...] about The World’s Smartest Stupid Sports Blog: It Is Not Mitch Richmond’s Fault That He’s Being Inducted Into Sports’ Least Exclusive Hall Of Fame.

(AP) NEW YORK - Hall of Fame baseball player Eddie Murray has agreed to pay $358,151 to settle civil charges of profiting in stock trades by using confidential information passed to him by a former teammate. The Securities and Exchange Commission is also announcing related charges against James Mazzo, former CEO of Advanced Medical Optics, and businessman David Parker. The SEC says Mazzo provided illegal tips about a planned acquisition of Advanced Medical Optics by Abbott Laboratories in January 2009. Mazzo passed the information to Doug DeCinces, who tipped off Murray and Parker, the SEC alleges in a civil lawsuit. DeCinces settled the SEC's charges a year ago by agreeing to pay $2.5 million.

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. – As Bud Selig delivered his Baseball Hall of Fame induction speech Sunday afternoon, many of his friends and family were sitting front and center among the sizable crowd.Seated on stage behind Selig was his new, extended family – those already admitted into the most exclusive club in baseball, including some of the greatest players in the game’s history.

Even though Ray Lankford doesn’t have a Twitter account, he is well aware of the passionate support he has received on social media over the last few years from loyal fans eager to see him in the Cardinals Hall of Fame. Lankford’s wife, Erika, is somewhat of a social media guru, he says, so he has a good idea how much fans in St. Louis still love the man who was in many ways the face of the Cardinals franchise in the 1990s. “I would like to say thank you, thank you, thank you,” Lankford said a day after it was announced that he will make his debut on the Cardinals Hall of Fame ballot. “I appreciate all the support over the years for me and my family. I couldn’t’ have played in front of better fans.” Lankford, Vince Coleman, Keith Hernandez, Jason Isringhausen, Scott Rolen, Lee Smith and John Tudor are the seven players who were selected for this year’s ballot by a Red Ribbon Committee of local baseball experts.
