Ozzie Guillen has been fired after one year as manager of the last-place Miami Marlins, it was first reported by the Chicago Tribune. Guillen is still owed roughly $7million on a 3 year contract. It’s also being reported that bench coach Joey Cora has been fired as well. Most expected this news after Guillen made remarks in April that appeared to be sensitive to Fidel Castro, and insensitive toward the families that escaped Cuba and […]
The Detroit Tigers have put the Yankees in off-season mode, and it took only 4 games to do it. You know in the long run, the Yankees may have had less drama to deal with had the Orioles taken them out in 5 games. I have no doubt that this will be the start of a lot of changes in the Bronx. They already are speaking of the need to lower payroll, but with the […]
Eddie Yost, whose 8 years as a Mets coach is third longest in team history, passed away on Tuesday. He was 86. Born in Brooklyn on October 13, 1926, Edward Frederick Joseph Yost was signed as a 17 year old straight out of high school by Washington. After serving his country in World War II the following year, Yost returned stateside and was immediately put on the Senators roster. He never played in the minors. […]
Last night, the Tigers got a scare thanks to Jose Valverde and Raul Ibanez – but the game ended with Yankees fans hearts on the floors as they watched Derek Jeter’s postseason come to an end. This series to me, regardless of Jeter’s injury is going to be all about Valverde v. Soriano. The teams are both pretty evenly matched in starting pitching if you ask me, paired with the Yankees lineup inability to get […]
While I lick my wounds from another bittersweet Mets season, a season in which I saw no progress, I take solace in the fact there’s still some great baseball being played in October. I’m watching all these games and I can’t help getting caught up in all this drama… It’s so exciting and yet bittersweet at the same time because I end up getting a soft spot for players and teams that I have no loyalty to. […]
ALDS Orioles @ Yankees – 5:07pm on TBS Last night’s game was a drag to watch if you ask me. Sure, a 1-1 game going 13 innings sounds exciting but that games story wasn’t great pitching, it was the total inability on both sides to make timely contact. Heck, the most timely contact of the night came when Joba Chamberlain got hit by a broken bat. Seriously, what are the odds of that? As a […]
This has been a compelling postseason and it is getting more intriguing with each day. At the start of the season I projected the Giants and Yankees to meet in the World Series, and that’s still in play. The Yankees’ showing makes them hard to figure out, but one thing is for certain, and that’s things will never be the same for Alex Rodriguez and how he’ll respond to being benched for this afternoon’s game […]
Last night was a great night for Major League Baseball, but today may be even greater. Giants @ Reds – 1:07pm on TBS Series tied at 2 When I wrote my preview for this series, I said “I think this will be the series that almost nobody watches.” So far, unfortunately that has held true. The Giants looked like they were on their way out after being swept at home, but they found a way […]
We never got a chance to discuss the pros and cons of the Washington Nationals shutting down their ace Stephen Strasburg who they opted not to include on their post season roster. It was a bold move to say the least by Nats GM Mike Rizzo, but was it the right call? Bob Nightengale of USA Today asked some rival GM’s what their thoughts were, and not only did all of them call it a […]
