Baltimore Orioles Victim of AL East Domiance »

Looking at the MLB standings today, I couldn’t help but notice just how strong the AL East is so far this season. Even the fourth place team, the Toronto Blue Jays, are seven games above .500, and the only bad team in the division is the Orioles. I thought it might be interesting to see what the differences are when an AL East team is [...]

Seattle Mariners May Have Done New York Yankees a Huge »

The Yankees brass were pretty hanked off after they thought they had a deal for the Mariners’ Cliff Lee, centered around 20-year-old catcher Jesus Montero.

Two groups that will miss Steinbrenner in their own ways are the Major League Baseball Players’ Association and players’ agents, because [...]

The first player selected was my all-time biggest draft bust: Danny Goodwin. Adding to the fact that this was the second time Goodwin was the first player selected in the draft, he [...]

Alex Rodriguez is a Punk »

The Dallas Braden/Alex Rodriguez feud is still going strong, and while part of me feels that Braden ought to let it go and move (which he appears to be doing tonight with eight perfect innings against the Rays so far), all of me feels that Alex Rodriguez is one of the bigger punks in the game. This article quoting A-Fraud on espn.com kind of says [...]
