The Year Of The Geezer

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

If 2010 was the Year of the Pitcher in baseball, it looks like 2012 is shaping into the Year of the Geezer. History was made on Tuesday by a pair of guys old enough to know a whole lot of history, as Jason Giambi of the Rockies and Chipper Jones of ...

Hunter Pence Will Most Likely Be Traded By Houston Astros

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

The Houston Astros have gone hot and cold on trading outfielder Hunter Pence. While he's clearly their biggest trade chip, Pence is an important part of their roster and moving him would undoubtedly upset what's left of the team's fans. But, as of now, it appears more than likely Pence ...

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

Tuesday night my Twitter feed was inundated with NFL comings and goings. As was expected in the first day post-lockout.

When the San Diego Padres traded ace righty Jake Peavy to the Chicago White Sox, everyone agreed they got some nice pieces in return. Little did they know they'd get a guy who would actually have a better season than Peavy just one year later. Clayton Richard has been excellent for ...

Jeff Loria Proves Bobby Cox’s Point

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

I have never seen Florida Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria in person, and I never really want to. And not just because the guy is a total douchenozzle. I've always had this mental image of Loria being no taller than 5-foot-4, allowing his physique to match his Napoleonic attitude. (It also ...
