Pittsburgh Press, February 13, 1915:
Sisler was in the big leagues for good as a 1B/RF/P by June 1915.
Obviously he was a terrific hitter, but (as I’ve mentioned ...Read More...
Cutter-ing it up.

My first reaction was, “The balls on these guys.” Then I read the article which says they have a “20-year contract that granted rooftop owners the right to sell tickets to games.”
Well, that’s out of the blue.
Of course, a lot of pitchers are now starting to work up in the zone.
Brad Ausmus was good after all.
A 6-foot-2, 220-pounder with a rare blend of strength and speed, he was the youngest of four brothers to star at Grant Union High. The eldest, Syd’Quan, was drafted by the Denver Broncos in 2010, but would always tell people, “Wait until you see Shaq.

Quite the thunderous ensemble.
“In a September 1972 issue of The Sporting News this picture appeared with the headline “Quartet of Spare Parts Give Yanks New Zip.” I confess to looking upon this photo with great hilarity. It features Johnny Callison, Bernie Allen, Ron Swoboda and Hal Lanier. Ever was there a more fearsome quartet of sluggers, I think not. They all appear grinning and happy. Their team unity is quite evident as they throw their arms about each other. Confidence leaps ...Read More...

Catching up on the GM series today with the Ed Barrow, Bob Howsam, George Weiss, and John Schuerholz. The work of GMs is a topic that fascinates me. Since Mark Armour and Dan Levitt are excellent baseball researchers I am counting the days to the book’s release.
Architect of the late 60’s Cardinals World Series teams and the Big Red Machine.
Long-time GM of the Yankees.
GM of the Royals and Braves.
Ken Rosenthal covers the impact of state taxes on offers to James Shields.
Ruben Amaro is what I call a “deal winner”. A “deal winner” doesn’t try to make a fair trade. He only makes deal when it is 100% clear that he won the exchange.

Ruben sounds like the guy in your fantasy league who everybody only deals with when they have to.
Jim Callis grades out the next big thing from Cuba.
Tony Massarotti finally writes something somewhat interesting.
What do the Mets need to do to win next year?
Former GM of the Dodgers, Padres, and Angels.
