Hi, my name is Kevin and I’m an addict…and what I’m addicted to is Out of the Park Baseball 11 from OOTP Developments (www.ootpdevelopments.com). I realize now that admitting there is a problem is the first step toward solving the problem. It’s just that I don’t want to break my OOTP 11 addiction just yet […]

What’s with the whining about the length of games?

Okay, I realize I’ll be in the minority with what I am about to write but I just have to say it…

Why the hell does anyone care about the “average length” of Major League games?

March 31, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

The NL Central may not be the strongest division in baseball but the top four teams in for 2010 have all improved over what they were in 2009, at least on paper. There is some depth to this division that didn’t exist before and that should make for an exciting Summer.

I’ll break down the trades that went down today for a quick minute and also spend a little time complimenting the Pittsburgh Pirates. Hey, I ripped them when they made bad deals so they deserve credit when they do well…

Yep, all of that in the world of baseball. Thoughts on Bryce Harper heading to JUCO at age 16, Sammy Sosa, Congressional involvement and more in Kevin Wheeler’s latest contribution…

MLB should eliminate the draft

Yeah, you read the headline correctly. Major League Baseball should eliminate the draft and handle all amateur players as “free agents,” so to speak.

Can someone just pull the plug on the Pirates already?

Just a few hours ago the Pirates traded OF Nate McLouth to the Atlanta Braves in their latest “salary dump” deal, with “dump” being the key word here. Just awful.

Counting pitches just doesn’t add up

Why is it that pitchers in this ultra-modern era of American sports are the ONLY types of athletes whose attributes are deteriorating over time rather than improving? Two words: money and fear.
