Making The Right Call At Second Base

A parent recently told me an inspiring story of sportsmanship, from a Flagler Police Athletic League playoff game. It was the bottom of the fourth inning, in the 10-and-under minors division semifinals Wednesday night, at the Flagler County Fairgrounds. The game between the Tigers (coached by Rick Torres) and the Royals (coached by Jay Pigninelli) […]

B-Met Futility: McHugh’s Great Performance Goes Down The Drain – Savannah Wins

  Indianapolis 6, Buffalo 3 By Andrew O’Brien For the third straight game, the Buffalo Bisons played shoddy defense Tuesday afternoon en route to a 6-3 loss to the Indianapolis Indians.

Arr, Dickey Stifles The Pirates In A Swashbucklin’ 3-2 Victory Over The Pirates

Dickey probably could have gone the entire game tonight the way he was dealing – 7 dominant innings led the Mets to a 3-2 victory. Summary I have come to the conclusion that I need to see as many of Tricky Dick’s games as I possibly can, because this man can seriously pitch. R.A. started […]

On The Road With Petey Pete: Wet & Soggy In New Britain

With respect to Bisons lefty Chuck James who told me a few weeks ago in response to my somewhat facetious comment to him, “Everyday’s a beautiful day for baseball.” Yesterday in New Britain, CT it wasn’t exactly a beautiful day for baseball as it rained right up until game time, and then the B-Mets lost […]

Alright, I’ve gone too long without a good rant and after a loss like last night’s stinker against the Bucs, today’s as good a day as any. Let me begin with Andres Torres who has stunk up the joint considerably since his hot week after coming off of the disabled list. Torres is now batting […]
