Swinging Out of the Box: The Case For Alphonso Soriano

June 21, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

With more Kevin Youkilis trade rumors today, and teams scrambling for productivity at third base, I have an easy, but controversial idea for the Cubs to move the huge contract of Alphonso Soriano. The best thing for Alphonso Soriano, and the Cubs for that matter, would be to start playing him at third base. I […]

Clearing The Bases

October 7, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

The Rays’ magic ran out in the 1st round playoff loss to the Rangers.  They won the first game, but their lack of offense was a glaring weakness in three straight losses that sent them home. The Yankees had a disappointing end to their 2011 season with a Game 5 loss to the Tigers at […]

Oh that clock is a ticking louder and louder as the end of the big league season approaches on Sunday, and with it some big league skippers (and staff) are probably going to have a few sleepless nights in front of them over the next few days.  That’s if they have not already come to […]

The Houston Astros have started slowly for several years (9-13 in April, 2009 and 13-16 in 2008).  However, the month of April, 2010 (8-14) was even worse.  After the Club started 0-8, there was a brief ray of hope when the team went 8-2 in the next 10 games including a 3 game sweep of […]

I’m not sure if he listed it amongst his many cheeses during his picnic with Libby two weeks ago, but Hurley really should have packed what is quickly becoming the cheese in Cardinal Nation. Colby Jack. Colby Rasmus was the no-doubter Hero last night.  Two home runs, an early one to give the Cards a […]
