Kid Blogger Interviews Jim Leyritz Live at the HOF

July 9, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Hey baseball fans! As I mentioned in a past blog post, over the next couple of weeks I will be posting the video interviews taped by the Hall of Fame’s Multi-Media Manager, Roger Lansing, of me interviewing various Hall of Famers and other retired players when I was at the Hall of Fame Classic. Today I […]

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 […]

Clearing The Bases                                                                                                                          May 22, 2012 by George Kurtz In my mind, Memorial Day marks the end of the first third of the season.  We have had time to adjust our rosters somewhat, but if things still aren’t going your way and you’re still at the bottom of the standings, than it’s time to make […]

Clearing The Bases

I completed all of my spring training rankings for each position last week.  Now that I have done that it’s time to go back and take a look at each set of rankings and see if there are any changes that I would make.  Now by changes I’m not talking about one or two spots, […]

The 2011 World Series has certainly been memorable.  Whether it’s Albert Pujols hitting three HRs in a single game or phone gate when Tony LaRussa couldn’t get Jason Motte warmed up in the bullpen during Game 5, not like we’re going to forget this series anytime soon.  Let’s see what else is going on throughout […]

Being a Yankee fan, it’s not easy watching the League Championship Series and not feel like the Yanks should be there.    Not that I thought they were the best team in the American League, I have been picking Texas to make the World Series for most of the season, but I did believe they were […]

Surprise, Surprise! It Is Early October And Three Indy Leagues Already Seem Set for 2012

October 8, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Some uncertainties over league makeup often dominate the news this time of year, but at least three of the five primary Independent leagues seem to have their plans in order.  One result is that travel teams which the Atlantic and Can-Am Leagues had to endure this season are gone. The Atlantic League is already out […]

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 […]

Brust named NYCBL Coach of the Year

September 3, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Four years in the making Dave Brust got his just due. The New York Collegiate Baseball League announced its post-season awards, and the Webster skipper nabbed the top honor. Brust’s Webster nine set new organization standards and broke a league record en route to a 30-14 regular season mark and an eventual spot in the […]

We’ve had to take a few weeks off due to some software problems, but we’re back today, just in time to watch all of the players that major league teams will call up to fortify their bullpen and bench during this final month.  The Yanks and Red Sox have been playing a big series this […]

Boston Sweeps Yanks but Playoff Hopes Remain Dim

May 15, 2011 by · 6 Comments 

Boston has finally reached .500 this season but now midway through May it’s a likely bet the Red Sox playoff hopes in this overly-hyped season remain iffy at best. Their position in the standings is certainly not bleak, however, for the Red Sox to have any chance of reaching the playoffs, the team would have […]

Showalter Ups the Ante in the AL East

March 24, 2011 by · 1 Comment 

In a recent interview on the Seamheads Podcast Network’s Outa the Parkway, Tim Donner of Radio America talked about Buck Showalter’s intensity, how he wore out his welcome quickly in the three previous managerial gigs that define his career.  Showalter’s fire and competitiveness are on display once again in an article on ESPN and in […]

Cleaning up the Desktop

November 23, 2010 by · 1 Comment 

A rundown of some of the recent goings-on in baseball as soon as they calculate my VoRP. It’s been over a month since I last filed a piece for Seamheads.  To answer the question on the minds of all my loyal fans—yes, the three of you—I haven’t posted on Seamheads.com, because I have been serving […]

Burnett Does Not Fit on Yanks ALDS Roster

October 5, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

With the postseason set to begin on Wednesday, the Yankees announced their roster for the American League Division series against the Twins. As expected, AJ Burnett is on the roster––although he is not in the starting rotation––while Ivan Nova and Javier Vazquez has been left out. Now, it would seem to be a ridiculous decision to […]

Late Summer Concerns of a Yankee Fan

September 4, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

This summer, I’ve finished up a master’s degree and changed my relationship status to “married.”  I haven’t had a ton of time to watch my beloved Yankees, but I have observed as they’ve compiled the best record in the majors, along with the best run-differential in the league.  They’re in first place in the AL […]

Webster sweeps Elmira

July 20, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

WEBSTER, N.Y. – Superman had kryptonite. Sampson had his hair. Apparently, the Elmira Pioneers have “The Basket.” The NYCBL West division leading Pioneers came to Webster riding a seven-game winning streak. The Pios left with a pair of losses.
