West Coast Craig reports from Hollywood with an endearingly laid back style. A happily married father of two little boys, WCC has an avocado tree in his yard, plays the hot corner in a "Valley" hardball league and always manages to take cool sports-related mini road-trips, often with his immediate clan.

NEW YORK, NY – Six months ago, deep in the jungles of the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia, farmer Rex O’Rourke was tending to his banana plants when he heard a voice whisper, “If you build it, he will come.” Rex looked around, puzzled. He’d dropped out of civilization when he dropped onto the island […]
< NEW YORK, NY – Korak charged third base as coach Tim Teufel frantically gave the stop sign. The big gorilla never slowed down, his left hand gripped the bag as his hind legs sprang around it. Bartolo Colon had just hit a ball into the gap and Korak was on first thanks to another […]
“I’m working on something interesting.” –Freddie Wilpon NEW YORK, NY – Those were the Mets’ owner’s words as he plopped ice in his white wine and offered some to the guest in his office. The Mets were on the field down below, and Noah Syndergaard finished his warm-ups. Bud Selig eyed the cube and gave […]
