Delmonico, 22, is still under a 50-game suspension for testing positive for an amphetamine late last July. Baseball America reported he has been signed by the Chicago White Sox.
Delmonico was acquired from Baltimore in exchange for reliever Francisco Rodriguez in late July 2013 and immediately was listed among the Brewers’ top prospects. The organization had a void at that position and it was hoped he would rise through the system and fulfill his potential.
But Delmonico missed ...Read More...
Not as bad as Ted Williams’ fate. Yet.

Probably unintentional, but the number 6 meme lives!
Does the new column mean Howard’s no longer in the running for the NBC Nightly News gig?
Mark Armour talks with Chris Russo about his new book.

I’ve always been fascinated and awed by Branch Rickey. His selection as the number one general manager is well deserved.
Maybe the Phillies should let Pat Gillick do whatever he wants.
This is a few weeks old but I don’t believe it was posted. Kiley McDaniel makes some very good points about prospect rankings.
Some touching stuff on baseball’s first female beat writer. Good quotes from Lloyd Moseby, and you get a hint of what she went through in the early 80s. RIP
It was in the late 1970s that female sportswriters began to push back against their long held prohibition from men’s locker rooms. After Sports Illustrated reporter Melissa Ludtke was barred from the New York Yankees’ clubhouse during the 1977 World Series, she filed a discrimination lawsuit against Major League Baseball. She won the ...Read More...
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. He’s better than all of us.” Shaq became the country’s top-rated safety, turning down Oregon and Cal-Berkeley (Syd’Quan’s alma mater) for Washington; he was the Huskies’ most-prized recruit in more than a decade. He’d go on to ...Read More...
A Garrett Richards update.
A look at the best players who never played in the World Series.
Quantifying a catcher’s ability to steal strikes is one of the great sabermetric advances over the last ten years.
Is it really that difficult to come up with ideas of things to write about?
So when Jones gets into pitchers counts, he’s not being patient enough to get his pitch.
OK, that makes two people.
It will be interesting to see how he’s used by the Mariners. The question at this point is, did he cost himself some money this year by refusing to play the outfield last season?
“Hurry up and lose so we can all get home!”
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.
