Tony La Russa has some expletives for Harold Baines’ Hall of Fame detractors

The most heated debate at this week’s winter meetings hasn’t centered around Bryce Harper or Manny Machado’s next move. Instead, it’s centered around Harold Baines’ election to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
The longtime Chicago White Sox slugger was surprisingly elected by the Today’s Game era committee on Sunday, where he joined closer Lee Smith as baseball’s newest Hall of Famers. Yet here we are, three days later, with opinions still flowing and emotions still running plenty high.

My Father’s Memories of Working with Carl Yastrzemski at Kahn’s-Hillshire Farm in the Early Eighties

Boston Red Sox outfielder Carl Yastrzemski worked as a spokesman for Kahn’s-Hillshire Farm.  Being a well-known baseball player with a memorable Polish last name, Yastrzemski was the perfect fit to help the company grow its kielbasa and smoked sausage market share.  When Yastrzemski and the Red Sox came into town to face the Baltimore Orioles, my father got the unique opportunity and rare privilege to work alongside and get to know a future Hall of Fame baseball player.  Over the years, my father has recounted his memories of Yastrzemski and shared his autographs, pictures, and other keepsakes given to him by the Red Sox legend.

This Orioles Defense May Be the Worst We’ve Ever Seen

... these Orioles are mind-bogglingly bad at catching balls put in play. Orioles fielders have combined for negative-84 runs of defensive value compared with the average team, per the advanced stat defensive runs saved. That is already one of the 10 worst totals… At their current pace, they will finish the season with negative-160 DRS—40 worse than the previous record holder, the 2005 Yankees.
