Who else do people want him to be, Buddy Biancalana?
Nothing new, but who doesn’t like reading about Mantle and Maris?
Tribe considered Saturday reunion for Yan Gomes, Corey Kluber, but the catcher must wait until Sunday: Cleveland Indians notes | cleveland.com
Gomes is bad on Sunday. Play him if you got him.
When I read the headline, I didn’t think it was a big deal. Committing to the event and not showing up, however, is weak.

What! No Asian Americans, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islanders, or American Indian and Alaska Natives on the list?

I will always remember calling the Baseball Weekly offices to try and get an answer to a baseball question about playoff tiebreakers. When the person who answered the phone didn’t have the answer, he said, “Let me get Paul.” I was surprised when Paul turned out to be Baseball Weekly’s editor, Paul White. We then had a very nice conversation about the MLB playoff tiebreaker, Baseball Weekly, and baseball in general. I appreciated his time. I have always appreciated his writing. Enjoy your ...Read More...

Umpires just don’t understand.
Holding Separate Elections For Player and Non-Player Candidates Would Greatly Improve the Hall of Fame’s Era Ballot Vote Process
By holding separate elections for players and non-players, the Committee would be able to continue to add candidates who lasted 15 years in BBWAA voting while also having enough room on the ballot for candidates such as Grich, Evans, Hernandez, and Whitaker whose Hall of Fame cases are strengthened by advanced metrics but were too quickly dismissed by BBWAA voters. In addition, putting the non-players on their own ballot would not only give the Committee space to select a solid candidate like ...Read More...
Milwaukee Sentinel, May 22, 1915:
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Exactly how many of these businesses are there?
The teams’ man agrees with a team. STOP THE PRESSES!
If you are going to release part of the contract, release the whole contract. I believe their claim that his homers weren’t marketable isn’t accurate. Sure, they *might* not have been able to make as much money as they potentially could have if ARod hadn’t gotten caught juicing but that’s debatable. With his start, Yankees fans surely don’t have him classified as a villian.
Of the 17,808 players (and counting) who’ve run up the dugout steps and onto a Major League field, only 974 have had one-game careers.
That slow curve from El Duque that A-Rod launched into orbit was magnificent. But I wish I could have seen more of the true, 15-25 foot high eephus pitches.

“I’ll give most of the credit to Lucas Duda,” Collins said. “He is the one who has said, ‘I can hit lefties. I always have hit lefties.’ And I’m going to give Keith some credit.”
Hernandez—who hit .291 against southpaws during his career—downplayed his impact, but acknowledged Duda requested a session.
“We had one day where we worked together,” said Hernandez, a five-time All-Star as a lefty-hitting first baseman. “I just imparted to him tendencies of left-handers that ...Read More...
How about a pitcher who can swing for the fences? San Francisco Giants ace and reigning World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner—who has two career grand slams and homered four times last season—is one such dual threat.
So is Shohei Otani. If you haven’t heard about the 20-year-old Japanese sensation, you will soon. He plays for the Nippon-Ham Fighters of Nippon Professional Baseball, the highest level of baseball in Japan, but he has designs on playing major league baseball. His current team could ...Read More...
Some good stuff about Dustin Pedroia in college.
