My Top Five Favorite Uniforms in Baseball History

March 16, 2014 by · 2 Comments 

Hey baseball fans! When I go out onto a baseball field, I enjoy looking well-dressed. For example, I would never wear an all-pink uniform, just because I would look weird. The same thing goes for MLB uniforms. Some of the uniforms in the past are frowned upon by the players who wore them and by […]

Astros Show Some Signs of Improvement in August

September 4, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Before finishing the month of August with a disappointing five game losing streak, the Astros had shown some signs of being competitive.  Though the team’s record in the month was only 8-21, the Astros led in 22 of their 29 games.  That they only won 7 of these games pinpoints the team’s most glaring of […]

Clearing The Bases

June 7, 2012 by · 2 Comments 

Tonight’s column isn’t going to deal with the fantasy relevance of Major League Baseball, but more of some of the rules I would like to change if I were the commissioner.  I wrote a similar column last season and I’m happy to say that Bud Selig listened to one of my suggestions and moved a […]

A New Beginning for Astros in April

May 3, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

While the Astros 9-14 record in April was a disappointment, it was better than the last 2 Aprils and there were some encouraging signs.  The Astros outscored their opposition104-100 which should have equated to a record of about 12-11. It is still too soon to determine if young players like Jose Altuve, J.D.Martinez, Jordan Schafer, […]

Time for Phillies Fans to Root for the Yankees

Was there ever any doubt? The Phillies just wrapped up a 162-game warm-up schedule and now their real season begins. Starting in April and running through the end of September it was merely an exercise in the inevitable. First place? Better be. Never a doubt. Their biggest competition was themselves. How many games over .500 […]

Are the Astros Really This Bad?

June 2, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Anyone who saw the first two games of the Cincinnati series last week and the Washington game on Monday would obviously answer yes. The Astros are on a pace to lose 108 games this year after never having lost 100 in their 48-year history. After getting in a hole with an 8-14 record in April, […]

Laying An Egg

No, I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth or been thrown into some big glowing light on a remote island.  My work schedule has made it tough to blog this week and the Cardinals’ play has keep the motivation to blog down as well.  Let’s take a quick look at the Houston series […]

Pitchin’ On The Dock Of The Bay

You knew, just looking at the matchups, two things about this weekend’s series.  One, it was going to be darn tough for the Cardinals to keep their streak of not losing a series alive.  The second was that if anyone scored, it was going to be a fairly impressive accomplishment. Sometimes when you think you […]

2010 NL Central Preview

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.

A Pain in the Back

March 23, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

The Cardinals split up the squad yesterday and wound up with two wins, including a huge eighth inning that brought them from behind against the Red Sox.  So what’s the major story today? Albert Pujols’s back, of course.  The man gets a hangnail, Cardinal Nation hyperventilates.  With good reason. This is starting to trouble me […]

Subtle Shifts

March 19, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

While no major news came out of Jupiter yesterday, there were a couple of things that could have an impact on the season to come. First, the Cards returned Ben Jukich to the Reds.  For a Rule V guy, he didn’t get a lot of looks in camp, only getting two innings in one game. […]
