An article by posted on April 19, 2010 0 Comments

I generally choose to avoid personal biases due to how it affects my writing, but this is one that cannot go unheard for much longer. I’ve witnessed 25 at bats that could’ve gone to Angel Pagan being wasted all because Omar Minaya has to prove he didn’t make a stupid trade. Gary Matthews Jr. should either […]

Opening Day lineup had Mike Jacobs playing first and hitting clean up. Mets final game against the Rockies had Fernando Tatis playing first and batting fifth.

World Series Memories – What Are Yours?

An article by posted on November 2, 2009 0 Comments
