Krafft-Ebing Mosaics

Cosmic Baseball Team
Krafft-Ebing Mosaics Deactivated

The Cosmic Baseball Association announced today that the KRAFFT-EBING MOSAICS, a cosmic baseball team created on March 1, 2009 has been deactivated and therefore will not participate in the 2010 regulated season.

The Mosaics are a team of interesting women, who compiled a 76-86 record in 2009. Some of the Mosaics proved to be contentious on the cosmic field of play...with other players, umpires and in one instance with a fan. This contentious aspect helped make the team interesting but did little to improve its collective below-average performance.

With the Mosaics' deactivation, the regulated league is left once again without an all-female team and there is no certainty that the replacement team will be all-female.

Regulated Season Ends

Season 2009 Main Plate

The Dharma Beats win the 2009 Season Pennant as the team with the most wins. The Beats have made it to the Cosmic Universal Series five times since Season 2005 (missing only last season.) But the team has never won the CUS. The Astronomical Planets came in a robust second this season which is especially nice since the Planets are a non-humanoid team. (The 1990 Hurricanes were the last non-humanoid team to make it to a CUS; they lost to the Ionians.)

The Planets will meet the Beats in the 2009 CUS, a best-of-seven series, beginning Thanksgiving Day (November 26, 2009).

2009 Main Plate
Season 2009
The Regulated Season Winds Down

With six games left in the regulated season the Dharma Beats have secured the top spot and will be the best cosmic team of the 2009 season. The Astronomical Planets, a rookie non-humanoid team will be the second best team this season.

The Regulated Season ends September 7 (Labor Day) and the 2009 Cosmic Universal Series between the Beats and the Planets will begin on November 26 (Thanksgiving Day).

Rumors are already spreading about which team or teams will be deactivated and there is also a lot of chatter about which players will be gone by the start of the 2010 season (on March 15, 2010.)

Link to the Pete Rose Hall-of-Fame Controversy at the Cosmic Baseball Association
Pete Rose Controversy
Is It Time for Pete Rose to be in the Hall?

There are rumors that the current Major League Baseball Commissioner, Bud Selig, is considering lifting Pete Rose's banishment from baseball. Or, more importantly, Selig might allow Rose to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

(What would former MLB Commissioner Bart Giamatti, who passed away shortly after banning Rose from baseball in 1989, recommend to us?)

To the question "Should Pete Rose be in the Hall of Fame?"...The Cosmic Baseball Association chants a resounding "YES" .

As we suggested 12 years ago, Rose should be put in the Hall of Fame, literally. He wants in almost more than anything else. In our view, putting Rose in the Hall of Fame, with just an hour a day for exercise on the nearby Doubleday baseball field, would be a sensible option.
