VIDEO: Erick Aybar overcame the worst strike call ever to beat team USA

The World Baseball Classic wasn't something I was planning on covering too much seeing how it is kind of lame and features almost no Angels. Well, Erick Aybar has forced my hand because in the course of two pitches, he made himself very relevant. First and foremost, Aybar got to be at the plate when umpire Angel Hernandez, who is just awful, made the worst strike call in...

With spring training baseball up to full speed and headed for the regular season, the news is coming fast and furious. Each rest day, each slap double, each pick-off attempt is being carefully reviewed, studied and analyzed by coaches to help players perform their best, and by opponents searching for any sign of weakness.
