Derek Jeter Misses Out On Unanimous Hall Of Fame Selection By One Vote

There is no doubt Derek Jeter deserves his enshrinement in Cooperstown. What didn't belong associated with his name is the first position player to get put in unanimously and thankfully he fell one vote short of it. New York Yankee fans are of course upset by this. Jeter though is arguably the most overrated player to ever play Major League Baseball and possibly of any of the four major sports

If you are like me and most other baseball fans, you are not alone, and sadly mega-contacts like these will never be enough when it comes to winning. What may have triggered this new “arms race” was the seven-year

A’s Season Once Again Ends In Disappointment

Last year the Oakland Athletics skipped over Mike Fiers who ranked 10th overall in era in 2018. Instead electing to use Liam Hendriks as an opener. Sean Manaea got the start after only making five starts, yet finished witn an era of 1.21 in 29.2 innings.  Another questionable decision was to start rookie catcher Sean Murphy instead of going with the veteran Josh Phegley. With a crowd of 54,000 plus

Left Field Is The Biggest Blemish In The Oakland Athletics Lineup

In 2018 outfielder Nick Martini made a name for himself in the Oakland Athletics lineup. Unfortunately prior to the start of the 2019 season he injured his knee. Which meant the signing of Robbie Grossman. That move has not paid off for the Athletics nor Grossman. While he has not shown much of an arm in left field, he positions himself well and has made several nice plays in left

The Oakland Athletics Need To Make Roster Moves Now

The Oakland Athletics are off to a decent start to the 2019 season. Yet, today's disappointing loss to the Texas Rangers makes it necessary for several roster moves. So far the bullpen has not been effective. Two of the A's most experienced relievers have not pitched well. Joakim Soria took the loss today giving up three hits, a walk and four runs while only recording an out. His era for

Clayton Kershaw: Is this the Beginning of the End?

So once again, one of the elite pitchers in the league is dealing with an injury. Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw has been shut down once again this time for what manager Dave Roberts is calling "an arm type of thing". Kershaw, who during the 2010-2015 seasons averaged 222 innings during those years, has had a tough time staying healthy as of lately. In 2016, he only pitched 149
