SLUGGERS IN THE MAKING

10 young hitters to watch in 2012

On Thursday, I wrote about ten young pitchers to keep an eye on in 2012. The same caveats apply for this list as for the pitchers list: all hitters must be under 25, and none of them can have been traded this offseason. Let's take a look. 1. Jason Heyward, Braves. In his rookie season of 2010, Heyward posted an .849 OPS and 5.1 fWAR, finishing as the runner up in the NL Rookie...

Spike Lee gives Obama special Air Jordans

President Barack Obama and film director Spike Lee might root for different NBA teams, but that didn't stop them from coming together Thursday night for the same cause. The President attended several fund-raisers in New York City Thursday evening -- one of which at Lee's house. While there, Obama, along with his wife, Michelle, received a specially made pair of Air Jordans...

Minnesota gets new unis, flashy trailer

In terms of uniforms, we’ve seen just about everything in the past 365 days. We’ve seen Maryland attempt to make a media splash, watched Washington State implement a slick but subtle upgrade and we saw Oregon test the capabilities of HD televisions around the country. Minnesota is the latest team to change up their football threads, and [...]

Shane Victorino to appear on Hawaii Five-O

Well isn't this cool. Phillies' center fielder Shane Victorino will be appearing on an upcoming episode of the CBS series Hawaii Five-O. Victorino is from Hawaii, so it is only natural that the Flyin' Hawaiian gets in on one of the hottest shows on television. There is no word on what role Victorino will play, nor when the episode will air. Hawaii Five-O star, Daniel...

HIGH NOTE

Video: DeAndre Jordan sings for All-Star votes

If DeAndre Jordan’s singing is a reflection of his basketball capabilities, there is no chance he will be playing in the NBA All Star game any time soon. In this desperate video to the fans, DeAndre channels his inner Usher in an attempt to win over your votes. Neither Jordan’s musical act or his play on the hardwood are going to convince me to make him an All Star this year...

25 players whose draft stock soared after bowls

If you had never heard of Terrance Ganaway before the Valero Alamo Bowl, I'll bet you do now. That's of course if you stayed up late into the night to watch him. A great bowl performance can make any player gain more name recognition. But can it help a player improve his draft stock? Well, an impressive game certainly can't hurt. Here are 25 players who definitely...

The top 15 prospects in Major League Baseball

Here it is. The one you’ve all been waiting for - the very top of the Top 100. For the first two installments, you can head here and here, and if you want more detailed scouting reports, you can head here and find the player’s team (I’ll be doing a little clean-up, moving some players around if they were traded). The “Elite” players on my lists are players I think will...

Cover for MLB 12: The Show released

This is hot off the press–the MLB the Show ’12 cover boy will be Adrian Gonzalez. This would only be known by those who follow the Official MLB the Show Facebook Fan Page like I do. And lets be honest, I probably beat you to it for reasons I’m not entirely proud of. Adrian replaces the cover boy for two years running Joe Mauer. It was probably time. I thought SCEA missed...
