Jimmy Rollins Notches 2,000th Hit; Will He Be Around Long Enough to Break Team Record?

It’s been an interesting 10 days for Jimmy Rollins. Rollins hosted the Ugandan little league team at Citizens Bank Park last week. Rollins had visited Uganda in the offseason, bringing them equipment to play with and donating $10,000 to help them make it to the Little League World Series this year. A day later Rollins was benched for failing to run out a pop up during a Mets game.

Bam! Bam! Bam!

Bam! Bam! Bam!

Bam! Bam! Bam!

So your bullpen just blew a five-run lead in the top of the 8th inning. No worries.

Adam Jones leads off the bottom of the inning.

Bam! One-run lead.

Toronto Blue Jays: Sierra and Hechavarria have potential

After splitting a four game series with Tampa Bay, I thought the Toronto Blue Jays were back on the winning track.  Boy! was I wrong.

The Blue Jays kicked off their three game series against the Baltimore Orioles on a losing note as they were shut out 4-0.

Thankfully, I had a cup of coffee beside me while watching this game.  It helped me from falling to sleep.  The majority of the game was so boring.  The Blue Jays couldn’t generate any offense until the sixth inning.

In the seventh inning, the Jays had bases loaded with one out, but was unable to score a run.

Flash in the pan or something more - Brock Holt

Just a disclaimer before I start this post. I'm working on kind of switching up the way I do things here on the blog. Before, a large majority of my posts were dedicated to game recaps and the like. I'm attempting to get away from that. I may still do it occasionally but only when I have writer's block. The big reason I did that for so long is in hopes that someone who mattered would run into my blog and I would get exposure and potentially a job. That's why I was always so proper. Well, enough of that. I'm going to start doing a lot of different things now.

Detroit Tigers must stop the madness

Detroit Tigers must stop the madness

Detroit Tigers must stop the madness

The Detroit Tigers are running out of rope. Just when all seems right with the world, after a 3-game sweep of the division leading White Sox and with the Indians coming to town, this team, yet again, has found a way to disappoint. Faster than it takes Alex Avila to grow a beard (or kill a rally), the Tigers are seemingly grasping at straws for the umpteenth time this season.
