Are you F***ING kidding us? What was that series? No, really, what was it? Our offense shows up for one night, and not only do we lose by one run, it's the one night that Verlander pitches like a middle schooler? The next two nights our team loses AGAIN by one run (!) after Anibal Sanchez and Rick...

Seriously.  There is no guarantee.  There is NEVER a guarantee (right, Red Sox?). Whether you’re listening to the Worldwide Leader of Dopes or MLBN or that fat guy at the end of the bar who just won’t shut up, you’ve probably heard some variation of the following phrase regarding the AL Central:...

The Boston Red Sox have been in the news countless times this season and usually it is negative publicity. Bobby V's comments about Kevin Youkilis. Josh Beckett playing golf on his off-days but unable to pitch. Once again they are making the headlines but this time it is 100% baseball related. The...

The Rockies haven't learned yet not to pitch to Giancarlo Stanton or if you are going to try, make him chase pitches out of the strike zone. Stanton made the Rockies pay again with another homer, a three-run blast in the first inning. Yes, it is the big leagues but when you struggle to get people...

What gives??? Seriously, though. What the hell is up, guys? First our boys give us a beautiful, merciless sweep against the hated Tribe that included not only the best game of the year but one of the best games we've ever seen. Then, we take two straight from the Yankees and seem to be on a mini-...

Whether it has been San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy’s carousel of starting lineups he produces on a seemingly day-to-day basis or his unorthodox use of the bullpen, Bochy has received flack over the years.   It has not been easy this season for Bochy.  Managing the future of the franchise...

Wow. Wow. WOW. There is not much to say that hasn't already been said about yesterday's game. At the very least, it was the best game of the year for our boys. At the very most, it was one of the best comeback wins in the MLB for the entire season and the catalyst that will give the team the final...

Did the 1994 MLB player’s strike prevent Greg Maddux from completing the greatest pitching season of all-time? One of the darkest days in baseball history occurred on August 12, 1994 when the MLBPA walked out on strike, causing the remainder of the season to be cancelled. For years, this...
  What do you really know about Charles “Old Hoss” Radbourn other than his famous twitter account? His 1884 season almost defies belief.  The Providence Grays right-hander displayed the greatest resolve and courage to compete in the history of baseball. 59-12 / 1.38 ERA /...
Should The Phillies Get Youkilis?By The Captain A few days ago on the MLB Network Radio, Jim Bowden suggested the Phillies should call the Red Sox and offer them Domonic Brown and Antonio Bastardo for Kevin Youkilis. On the surface it seems like a great move for the...

If there is one thing that never ceases to amaze, it is the sheer number of fantasy baseball owners that panic as early as the second week of the baseball season. With such a small sample size, it is easy to over-react when players have a poor start to the season. However, there are often warning...

San Francisco Giants' left-hander Barry Zito silenced the naysayers by pitching a complete-game shutout in the Colorado Rockies' home opener at Coors Field. Out of Lincecum, Cain, Bumgarner, and Zito, who knew Zito would be the first to put the Giants in the win column in 2012. Few probably would...
