Upcoming Biz of Baseball Interview: Victor Conte
User Rating: / 8
PoorBest 
Written by the Staff   
Friday, 04 September 2009 17:58

Victor ConteAs the topic of performance-enhancing drugs in the world of sports has become increasingly prevalent, the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO) investigation has become a story that refuses to go away. The lab, founded and formerly owned by Victor Conte, supplied PEDs, most notably tetrahydrogestrinone (THG)  or as it became more commonly known as "the Clear", to trainers and athletes. BALCO has been in association with high profile athletes such as Bill Romanowski, Marion Jones, Tim Montgomery, as well as MLB players Barry Bonds, Jason Giambi, Gary Sheffield, Benito Santiago, Jeremy Giambi, Bobby Estalella, and Armando Rios.

The Biz of Baseball interviewed Conte today, in what will be surely one of the most expansive and provocative interviews yet published. The interview session today is one of two that will be published on BizofBaseball.com. Part I deals with Conte’s slide into the world of PEDs with chemist, Patrick Arnold; a highly critical look at the book Game of Shadows by Lance Williams and Mark Fainaru-Wada; as well as details on Troy Ellerman, the lawyer that eventually was revealed to be the source of leaks of BALCO grand jury testimony to Williams and Fainaru-Wada. Along the way, Conte and interviewer Maury Brown, discuss drug testing policies for professional sports leagues in the US, as well as discuss the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) testing program.

Look for Part I of the interview with Victor Conte in the coming days on http://www.bizofbaseball.com

Eavesdropping

The Biz of Baseball works diligently every day to bring you a professional face to covering the game off the diamond, but we couldn't help but see a chance to allow readers to have some fun.

 

It's not everyday that I'm pictured with Washington, D.C. heavyweights, but that was the case this week when Washingtonian Magazine has me as part of their "Eavesdropping..." section. Please note, I am the only one not wearing a suit, showing how "loose" I am should any paparazzi come calling.

So, leave a caption on this clear case of "One of These Things Doesn't Belong Here". Pictured along side me is columnist David Brooks; Presidential adviser, David Axelrod, and; White House press secretrary Robert Gibbs

2009 BBWAA Badge List Now on The Biz of Baseball
User Rating: / 34
PoorBest 
Written by Maury Brown   
Sunday, 17 May 2009 18:38
BBWAA

For those interested in the membership of the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA), The Biz of Baseball has now been updated with the 2009 "Badge List" – a list of the current members, all 725 of them.

The list is broken down by year each writer joined, from Seymour Siwoff of the Elias Sports Bureau in 1952, to Dot Com-ers Will Carroll and Christina Kahrl of Baseball Prospectus, and Rob Neyer, and Keith Law of ESPN.com that were included to the ranks this year.

As mentioned, there are 725 badge members, but don’t think that they are all voting for baseball’s premier award -- the Hall of Fame. For that, you have to wait... and wait... and wait... 10 years, to be exact.

Another thing to note: We didn’t get last year’s list, but we have the list from May of 2007, and there is a clear sign that the sucker punch that the print industry is taking has hit the rolls of the BBWAA. From 2007 to 2009 the list has gone from 785 to 725, or a decline of 8.28 percent. In another sign that the print industry is under the weight of the economy and changing habits of news readers, Colorado Chapter Chair Jack Etkin is listed without a publication affiliation. Etkin was formerly with the Rocky Mountain News, which recently folded just 2 months shy of its 150 year anniversary.

This year’s listing has been updated with not only the Chapter leaders, but the Officers, and the Board of Directors.

Written by Maury Brown   
Friday, 08 May 2009 16:25

Matt VasgersianThe interview was conducted today, and we’re looking to publish on Monday. The interview subject is MLB Network’s Matt Vasgersian.

Topics include the Manny Ramirez suspension, how MLB Network’s atmosphere changes when stories such as the Ramirez suspension or A-Rod story breaks, his thoughts on all the empty premium seats at ballparks across the league, what teams that are surprisingly at the top of the standings now might be there at the end of the season, how he embraces the blogsphere, and finally, what exactly happened after he went off-the-air on the day he compared a member of the Rockies' EMT staff to Eagles QB Donovan McNabb while a clip was shown of Rockies RF Brad Hawpe being carted off the field with a serious neck injury, and much more.

Look for the interview as early as Monday on The Biz of Baseball
