Ok, I’m kidding. I wanted to get your attention because this player is doing some amazing things this year. He was a big-time prospect who got lost in the minors for a while but now at the age of 26, he’s putting it all together.
This year this slugger has played
I recall hearing somewhere that hitting a round baseball with a round bat squarely was the hardest thing to do in sports. Now that we measure launch angles and swing speeds and MPH of every ball hit fair or foul, I think we can say a lot of folks have
Baseball has been slagging a bit. Even this season has started off without a bang thanks to Manny Machado (Padres) and Bryce Harper, waiting to sign. Harper finally signed and it’s a record haul, $13 years, $330 million dollars (people in Philadelphia will now remember where they were when this
Feeling it after winning another world championship, champagne-soaked Boston players let it all hang out as some sang along off-key the Yankee theme song “New York, New York” that blasted forth from a boombox.

The event was inexplicable by the entire Cardinals’ organization as well as Major League Baseball. Perhaps
Back in 1998, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa’s home run race sparked the sport. Years later we’d learn why, but it did put a focus on what used to be “America’s Pastime”. Now fast forward to 2018 and the Cy Young race is keeping the sport afloat and I’ll explain
MLB has played a lot of exhibition games in places like Puerto Rico, Japan, and Australia. They have a lot more places targeted in the future but for now Williamsport, PA will be the next game up.
The Phillies and Mets will meet for a Sunday in-season game. Tickets aren’t available
The NFL is the #1 sport in the United States. No other sport is close. eSports isn’t a sport, so let’s leave that out. Millennials think baseball is boring and Nascar is dropping, so that leave the NBA, NHL, and Soccer. Everybody will agree that boxing isn’t in the same
