David Ortiz Is a Hall of Famer, But…

As everyone who follows (or HAS followed) this blog knows that I am a die-hard New York Yankees fan – which means I hate the Boston Red Sox with a passion. However, I have begrudgingly showed some respect to some Red Sox icons.  Ted Williams.  Carl Yastrzemski.  Pedro Martinez.  Nomar Garciaparra.  Dustin Pedroia.  Manny Ramirez. Now…

Good Riddance, A-Rod

I’m not going to spend a helluva lot of time on any rant having to do with Alex Rodriguez. Any move that dude makes seems to have an ulterior motive behind it, which is why I won’t produce a tribute-style rant for A-Fraud. Yeah, I know his 22-year baseball career will come to an end on…

2015 MLB Playoff Preview: Division Championship Series

The 2015 Major League Baseball playoffs is upon us, starting with last night’s opening round play-in games. The play-in round is always exciting, with …  Both play-in game winners should make for some compelling matchups in their respective divisional series. I need to get something off my chest. For those folks in the media elite…

The Reds Are a Trainwreck

I’m a little confused about something here. How does a team with one of the best starting pitchers and arguably the best closer in baseball suck?  Said team should be in contention for a wild card at the very least. Say hello to the 2015 Cincinnati Reds. The same Reds once employed one of the…
