The Real Reason Texas Traded Jarrod Saltalamacchia

Let’s be serious here. No team wants to trade the player with the longest last name in Major League Baseball history.  When a guy has that going for him, he’s going to be someone.  However, when he looks too much like your poster child, you have no choice but to unload him.  We all know…Read More

Torii Hunter: The Ultimate Team Player

When the Angels initially signed Torii Hunter in 2007, I was not a fan of the deal. I thought 5 years and $90 million was way too much and I still believe that his $18 million per year is too high. But when I complained about the contract, I was constantly told that Hunter would…Read More

A-Rod Misses Yankees Team Picture

OK, simple job for you: find the one non-Yankee player or coach in this photo. Alright, I’ll make it easier — Alex Rodriguez missed the Yankees team picture on Tuesday. Instead, team director of publications Alfred Santasiere III stood in for him and will later be photoshopped out. I have no idea why A-Rod missed…Read More

Indians and Red Sox Clear Benches

Leadoff man Juan Pierre stepped up to the plate to lead off the 5th and proceeded to launch a home run to right field. This was not some cheap shot…Read More

Cubs Season Comes to Embarrassing End

With the way the Cubs came charging out of the All-Star break taking three of four from the Phillies, I was convinced they were going to make a run at the NL Central title. And if they were not going to make the playoffs, I at least felt they would regain respectability. So much for…Read More

Manny’s Career Ended When He Forced His Way Out of Boston

The Manny Ramirez experiment in Los Angeles has been a failure.  When Manny became a cancer in the Red Sox clubhouse and completely forced his way out of town, it looked like the Dodgers were grabbing a legitimate slugger that could anchor the middle of their lineup and help propel them to the next level. …Read More

Are Bonds’ 73 as Safe as DiMaggio’s 56?

You don’t need a jury, a judge, or an LBS writer to tell you that Barry Bonds’ single-season home run record of 73 is a product of steroids.  Bonds, Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, and the other poster boys of Major League Baseball’s steroid era shattered records that we all know they wouldn’t have touched if…Read More
