It’s Roberto Alomar’s Time To Shine »

"I’ve made some mistakes, definitely, but I believe I deserve to be in Cooperstown." Roberto Alomar will hopefully add "Hall of Famer" to his long list of incredible accomplishments as we will all be anxiously anticipating today's announcement at 2:00 pm EST for the 2010 inductees into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Alomar is one of the [...]

MLB Winter Meetings: Day Three Surprises »

Any time I hear the phrase "surprise team" during the winter meetings, I am afraid...very afraid. Especially since there is a rumored "surprise team" that is involved with trade talks between the Chicago Cubs for Milton Bradley. Back in September, I explored the possibility of bringing Bradley to Toronto , but overall it was too high a risk for [...]

The Yankees as World Champions: Bad for Baseball? »

Today the Yankees enjoyed a lavish ticker-tape parade down Broadway Avenue celebrating their 27th World Series Championship. While most folks in New York came out in droves to celebrate, the rest of the baseball world basically rolled their eyes and said "not again." After watching the continued success of the New York Yankees as the most [...]

$200 Million Buys the Yankees a World Series »

Very quickly, congratulations to the New York Yankees on becoming World Series champs. There was nothing overly dramatic about Game Six or the series in general; however, good for the Yankees for coming out on top. But for the New York Yankees organization, anything less than a championship this year would have been an utter disappointment. So [...]

World Series Observations »

After having the pleasure of watching five relatively exciting World Series games, there are a few things that have stood out in my mind as noteworthy. The following is a list of some observations from this year's series thus far: With his half-dozen mound visits per inning, Jorge Posada is the sole reason these World Series games take four hours [...]

Bring on the Fall Classic »

  After what has seemed like an eternity since the end of the ALCS, the World Series is finally ready to get underway later tonight. On paper, I can't say that a Yankees-Phillies matchup is one that will go down in history as one of the greatest playoff rivalries, but I'm sure some people probably thought the very same thing about the 2001 [...]

The Men in Black »

One star has taken over the headlines and drawn all the attention on themselves this post-season. It’s not Alex Rodriguez, not Ryan Howard…I’m talking about the umpires. The officials have taken centre stage during the playoffs this year and have caused more controversy than ever thanks to some botched calls and just plain [...]

Mr. “Any Month But” October »

It's safe to say that there is a lot of pressure on Alex Rodriguez going into the ALCS. As the highest paid player in the league on the team with the highest payroll, there will be very lofty expectations for him and the New York Yankees going into their series against the Los Angeles Angels. Although he's been painted as a notorious choke [...]

Which World Series Matchup Do You Want To See? »

Last year, some of us got all googly-eyed at the potential of seeing a World Series where Manny Ramirez would go against the very same team that traded him just a few months prior. It had all the makings of the perfect media circus. But then it never even happened. This year's World Series might not live up to those lofty expectations, but here [...]
