An AL East Team Will Miss Out on a Playoff Spot

Has anyone taken a look at the MLB standings lately?  If you have, you’ve probably noticed that the power across the league is pretty concentrated.  The AL East currently has three teams — the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, and Tampa Bay Rays — that have a better record than any other team in…Read More

Pirates Fire Pierogi, End Losing Streak

We’ve ripped on the Pirates a number of times for a number of reasons. A few years ago their fans had a walkout to protest the ineptitude in the organization.

Though Greg Dobbs and Brad Lidge were vague answering questions about the display inside the Phillies’ clubhouse on Wednesday night, The 700 Level and SI’s Hot Clicks leads us to believe that…Read More

Sergio Mitre Hurt During Batting Practice

I find it so fascinating the way many pitchers are unable to function on a normal level like the rest of us. A few weeks ago, in light of Josh Beckett’s back injury caused while swinging, we noted all the pitchers who had been injured while swinging the bat. Looks like we can add another…Read More
