So here we are fifteen games into the season with a 7-9 record and finally winning our first series of the season against the Cubs.

Last night’s epic 20 inning marathon between the Cardinals and the Mets had more ups and downs than a ride on the Cyclone in Coney Island. When the game finally came to an end and I saw Luis Castillo field the grounder off the bat of Ryan Ludwick and fire it to Mike Jacobs at first […]

I am here to bring an even crazier philosophy – one so insane, that if you comprehend it you may want to be institutionalized. Its called “hitting, period”. Unfortunately, this is a crazy, next level idea that only appeals […]
