Jamey Newberg: Saint Lewis.

For many of us, it remains the greatest game in Rangers history, and its signature moment was the 1-2 breaking ball that froze A-Rod, sending him back to the visitors’ dugout and sending his Yankees home for the winter and sending 24 men sprinting toward Neftali’s mound and sending a franchise to its first World Series.

Trae Lewis: Whose cheat is it anyway?

The following opinion piece is a contribution from Trae Lewis. You can follow Trae on Twitter @traelewis. Before I dive into my thoughts on the most recent snubbing of Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds being elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame, I’d like to take you back to the ancient year of 1992. It was a […]

Peter Gammons: Reflection of Hall of Fame inductees Tim Raines and Jeff Bagwell

Tim Raines signs HOF after his name, the second greatest leadoff hitter in history, a man who reached base more often than Tony Gwynn or Roberto Clemente. So does Jeff Bagwell, who statistically is one of the six best first basemen ever, second only behind Albert Pujols since World War II. And Pudge Rodriguez, one […]

Peter Gammons: Offseason notes, turning to 2017

As a historic World Series and histrionic post-season gives way to another season, it has been interesting to listen to voices from people different than we are. One club president with decades of leadership said, “in the end, we felt the teams with the most talent were the Cubs, Red Sox and Indians, and for […]

Peter Gammons: Orioles pushing for top spot, rest is key for Tanaka and Maeda

Nothing seems to add up, but it doesn’t matter. Only three pitching staffs in the American League have fewer quality starts, or a higher starters’ earned run average than the Orioles. They have one pitcher who has won nine games. Wednesday night in Fenway Park their starting lineup against Rick Porcello had only three hitters […]
