Lou Piniella’s Tearful Farewell Speech

Whether your last name is Holtz, Brown, or Piniella, there’s something about guys with the first name Lou — they’re all hard as nails coaches. With that in mind — not to mention his 60+ ejections — it was a surprise to see Cubs manager Lou Piniella get as emotional as he did during his…Read More

HoJo Upset with Mets Pregame Pinochle

As difficult as it is to criticize the Mets because my uncle’s a big fan of the team, they just provide so many opportunities it’s hard to lay off.

The Cubs are currently 20 games under .500 and 18 1/2 games back in the NL Central. If…Read More

Torii Hunter Being Torii Hunter

Unfortunately for Adrian Beltre, the Anaheim Angels have been playing Torii Hunter in right field for the first time since like 1999.  Combine that with the fact that the right field wall in Fenway Park comes up to most outfielders’ waists, and you’ve got a situation where it’s extremely difficult to hit a home run…Read More

Strasburg Throws Heat at Bryce Harper

Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper could easily become the faces of the Washington Nationals for many years to come if they live up to the hype that has surrounded them already.  Despite giving Nationals fans a slight scare with his shoulder problem this season, Strasburg has already exceeded expectations.  The 17-year-old Harper, on the other…Read More
