AL Rookie of the Year Outlook

Jose Abreu, the Rookie of the Year in waiting

It’s that time of the year, as we all look forward to upcoming playoffs. It’s also time to look back and reflect on the great season that was. And with that comes the look to the future of the game and the new guys that jumped off the page. I am of course talking about […]

Angels streaking into October

The Angels come into today on an 8-game winning streak as each win brings them one step closer to a playoff birth. The remarkable thing is the distance they are putting between them and their opponents in both the games and the season. In the eight games, the Angels have won by a combined 41 points. […]

Aroldis Chapman is on his own level

Aroldis Chapman

A few weeks back I went on about Aroldis Chapman‘s consecutive appearances with a strikeout. He would finish with 49 straight games with a strikeout, 10 more than the previous record held by Hall of Famer Bruce Sutter. That streak has ended but the dominance of Chapman’s fastball remains. Coming into play on Thursday, Aroldis […]

J.D. Martinez continues to thrive in Detroit

j.d. martinez

Towards the end of June, Tommy Rancel wrote an excellent piece on J.D. Martinez flourishing in Detroit. Coming into play on that date, June 21st, Martinez was batting .317/.348/.615 with 7 long balls and 25 runs batted in. It’s typical for season surprises to fade off after stellar starts that were more than unexpected but […]

With the baseball world buzzing after the departure of some of the Red Sox top pitching talent, I would like to take a look at some of the talent coming in. Anyone who knows baseball can tell you the Red Sox are a pitching staff away from being relevant again, but the pieces that were […]

Henry Owens’ impressive year in the minors

Henry Owens

Henry Owens just set the Portland Sea Dog record with his 14th win of the season. The 22-year old from Huntington Beach, California is making a strong case as heir to the Red Sox pitching throne. The 6-6 southpaw owns a 14-4 record in double-A ball with a 2.60 ERA, 1.124 WHIP and 9.4 K/9. […]

Jon Lester’s Career with the Red Sox

With the trade rumors swirling around Fenway Park, it looks as if Jon Lester may have pitched his last game for the Red Sox. Scheduled to start today’s game against the Blue Jays, Lester was scratched for teammate Brandon Workman, hinting that he could very well be on the move. If in fact he is […]

Jacob deGrom has been superb in his last 7 starts. The rookie pitcher is 5-1 since June 21st, holding a 1.37 ERA with a 1.087 WHIP and 9.59 K/9. He has failed to sacrifice a home run in that stretch. Since June 17th, only two players have done better, Clayton Kershaw (7 G, 6-0, 0.63 […]

Braves’ Legends Enter the Hall

Bobby Cox

This weekend saw the Induction of the Hall of Fame class of 2014, one of the best classes in recent memory with the likes of big swinger Frank Thomas and all-time managers Tony La Russa and Joe Torre. But the ode to the great Braves teams of the 90’s shined brightest as Tom Glavine, Greg […]

David Ortiz homers

Both Adam Dunn and David Ortiz recently passed the great Carl Yastrzemski on the all-time home runs list and are currently tied at the number 35 spot with 455 home runs a piece. This of course begs the question; Which player will have hit more when it is all said and done? The easy answer could […]
