The Negro Leagues Always Were Top Tier

When news broke that Major League Baseball has officially declared the Negro Leagues to be a part of Major League Baseball, I reflexively thought, “That’s good.” Inclusion is good and I support it. It didn’t take long for my initial reaction to change to confusion. The whole reason there were Negro Leagues is because of […]

The Universal Designated Hitter

I read this article today. It talks about how there probably won’t be a universal designated hitter in baseball in 2021, but it will be here in the near future because that is one of the few things the players and the owners agree about. I hate the universal DH, and if I’m going to […]

Kim Ng

After my last post, it feel nice to have some good baseball news. The Miami Marlins have hired Kim Ng as their general manager. She is the first woman to hold the position, not just in baseball, but in any of the major North American men’s sports. It’s a big deal, and great to see. […]

It’s Hard To Be A Red Sox Fan Right Now

I’ve been a Red Sox (@RedSox) fan my whole life. It’s inherited, on my mom’s side. I remember the first game I ever saw in person. The Sox were playing the California Angels at Fenway. Yaz was still on the team then. The crowd went crazy every time he came up to bat. He hit […]

Show Me Something, Mike Trout

Mike Trout is the best player in baseball. Ask anyone who knows anything about baseball and they will tell you so. He’s accumulated more Wins Above Replacement (WAR) than any player at his age in baseball history. He’s won two MVP awards. He can field, hit, hit for power, throw, and run. Those are all […]

The 2018 MLB Postseason – World Series

It’s October, and that means it’s time for the baseball playoffs. It’s the best time of year. While I follow baseball all season long, I understand that some people only tune in for the postseason. So, I figured I’d write up a quick and dirty rooting guide for those just tuning in. The World Series […]

Baseball

Baseball is my favorite sport. I could watch a baseball game any time and be relatively happy. It doesn’t even have to be my team, as long as it’s baseball. It puzzles me that the people who are supposed to be promoting the game don’t seem to agree with me. The commissioner of Major League […]
