Surely you remember the story from last week about Jimmy Rollins’ agent, Dan Lozano, who, according to Deadspin sources, is one of the worst people in the world. Among his misdeeds, Lozano allegedly lures clients in by pretending that he's someone he’s not, uses hookers to both woo and blackmail clients, and repeatedly lies about his past.

Not surprisingly, Lozano’s lawyer had a few things to say about those claims. He sent Deadspin a letter before their story was published, and in it, denied many claims… claims which Deadspin never intended to publish, anyway. 

In a way that is oh-so-A.J. Daulerio, the now Gawker editor let Lozano’s lawyer bring to the surface some claims that otherwise would have never seen the light of day. You can read all of them here, but there’s one interesting denial that we’d like to point out. Take it away, Dan Lozano’s lawyer:

The charities where my client serves an officer of for Jimmy Rollins and Albert Pujols are not being used by my client for any personal benefits whatsoever. The assertion to the contrary is a false and absolute defamatory accusation. 

 

So, there you have it– Lozano is not using J-Roll’s™ charity for personal benefit, a claim that none of us knew anything about until right now.

… 

In other, less seedy news, Jamie Moyer is going to be writing a book about exactly what you would have thought Jamie Moyer would write a book about: the mental aspect of pitching. His co-author will be Daily News editor Larry Platt. From Phillyburbs.com:

"It's basically the continuing education of 49-year-old pitcher Jamie Moyer," says Platt of the book which he expects to be released by the beginning of the 2013 baseball season. "Here's a guy who had been cut by three teams at 31, then he meets Harvey Dorfman. He starts to realize pitching is what takes place from the neck up. He learns that pitching is using hitters' egos against themselves." 

 

Dorfman is, of course, Roy Halladay’s mind-fuck doctor who passed away earlier this year. 

Anyway, Moyer’s book sounds like a real page-turner… full story here.

    No doubt J-Roll treated himself to some ladies of the night via his agent.

    I think it’s funny that when this baseball team’s pitching staff was lead by the 46 year old Moyer, it was a consistent force in the ’08 post season yet the same staff lead by the Twin Leviathan of Halladay/Lee has just faltered in a single round…
    Just a though. I understand the offensive production is quite different.
    My point is to just bring to light once again the accomplishments of Moyer while he was here.

    Ironically, there is a special link between musicians and photographers/writers in the new publishing world of ebooks and apps.

    More than other times of the year, today’s scripture summons us to listen. The prophetic voice speaks repeatedly. “Get ready! Prepare the way.” Advent sets a particular tone, but not just for the season. It does it in a way that we should let the season shape our outlook for the way we live our lives at all times: a way that habitually looks ahead to what’s on the horizon.
