As stated in the article, the rule was collectively bargained - MLBPA not only agreed to the rule, but was part of the drafting process. Further (again, as explained in the article) Rasmus met only 1 of the 4 conditions for a legal slide - he started before ...Read More...

WISE MEN SAY the first time you feel old is when you look around and realize that most major league baseball stars are younger than you. If that’s true, a lot of folks are aging very suddenly. Young studs are everywhere around MLB these days.
Consider the best players in each league and the careers they could have in store. In the NL, that would be 23-year-old Bryce Harper, about whom my colleague Jayson Stark has written: “He’s a blend of Pete Rose and Reggie Jackson, as if that were even ...Read More...
Well, this just sucks.
Joey Rickard, Cinderella story or the real deal?
This is ridicules.
A great examination of what makes Betts and Pedroia similarly great hitters. Pedroia’s power numbers dipped for a couple of years when his wrist injury prevented him from turning on the inside stuff with any authority, especially up. He’s looked like his old self the last two years. Assuming he’s over his leg problems from last season, you should expect big numbers from him again.

Overland Park man buys baseball from Eric Hosmer’s World Series dash, loans it to Royals Hall of Fame
Then Lucas saw JB044155 and this description:
Session Name: 2015 WORLD SERIES GAME 5 KC@NYM
Session Date: November 1, 2015
Additional Information: BATTER — SALVADOR PEREZ, PITCHER — JEURYS FAMILIA, TOP OF 9, GROUND OUT
Lucas did a double-take. Wasn’t that the ball Mets first baseman Lucas Duda threw away as Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer dashed home to tie Game 5 of the 2015 World Series?
This is a pretty good first game. Of course, it was against the Padres.
I’ve played a lot of baseball games. This is one of my favorites.
A lot of great stuff in this article.
Posting this because of some of the factors related to his resignation are relevant to MLB front offices.
I haven’t had time to read the full thirteen pages of his long-winded resignation. With that in mind…as much as I buy into having an objective “process” in running a sports organization, you need people skills and ownership backing to get buy in or your franchise will be a muddled mess. Ultimately, though, you either find success or you end up unemployed.
