Edinson Volquez Is Just Plain Stupid, so Is MLB

Once again, we have another player testing positive for performance enhancing drugs. This time it’s Cincinnati Reds‘ pitcher Edinson Volquez. At this point, isn’t it just dumb to take any substance banned by MLB? Yeah, I think so too. Now the thing that grinds my gears is that not only was Volquez stupid for taking…Read More

Sox Stop Skid on the Bat of Darnell … Who?

You’ll have to forgive me for the picture to the right.  I scoured the internet for a solid ten minutes before finally settling on a picture of Darnell McDonald in a Reds uniform.  Maybe if I had waited until tomorrow, I’d find a picture of him in a Red Sox uniform that would be more…Read More

David Eckstein > Pablo Sandoval

For as diminutive in stature as Padres second baseman David Eckstein is, the guy has a somewhat surprising amount of power. Eckstein hit eight homers in 2002 with the Angels and eight in 2005 with the Cardinals, knocking in more than 60 runs each season. On Monday night, the 5’7″ second baseman put a crooked…Read More

Red Sox Have Hit Early Season Rock Bottom

How early is too early to talk about a team’s struggles or successes in Major League Baseball when the season is still incredibly young?  Should we give a team until at least the start of May before we either start singing their praises or bashing them?  Maybe, but I don’t feel like it.  The season…Read More

Bruce Bochy’s Poor Decision Blows Game for Giants, Barry Zito

Last week we criticized Joe Torre for mismanaging the Dodgers’ bullpen which contributed to two losses. Today, it’s time to criticize Torre’s counterpart, Giants manager Bruce Bochy. Barry Zito and Clayton Kershaw were engaged in a pitcher’s duel Sunday, keeping the game scoreless until Juan Uribe’s solo home run put the Giants up 1-0 in…Read More

Ubaldo Jimenez Throws Colorado’s First No-Hitter

It took the Colorado Rockies franchise 18 years to experience one of the most exciting moments in professional baseball — 9 innings of no-hit baseball.  With a fastball that topped out in the high 90’s the entire game, Ubaldo Jimenez became the first Rockies pitcher ever to record a no-hitter when he defeated the Atlanta…Read More

Details from Mets/Cards 20 Inning Game

One of the many fun story lines from Saturday was the 20 inning game the Mets and Cardinals played in St. Louis. The Mets took it 2-1, satisfying Omar Minaya’s quota for desired wins in the three game series with St. Louis. When you have a game of that incredible length it’s always fun to…Read More

Already 3-0, Can Halladay Win 25 Games?

Major League Baseball hasn’t seen a 25-game winner in 20 years.  The last time the feat was accomplished, in 1990, Bob Welch went on to win 27 games for the Oakland Athletics.  The game of baseball has changed.  Pitchers no longer go deep into games on a regular basis.  It’s highly unlikely that a pitcher…Read More
