Found March 07, 2013 on FatManWriting:
I look out side and see snow on the ground and find it hard to believe that it is actually baseball season already. Then I look on the internet and see the box scores, I check my email and see the fantasy league invites, I got the store and see the Spring seasonal beers on the shelf... Yeah. Baseball is back baby! We've already seen some great plays out of the likes of such guys as Mike Trout and Bryce Harper in the pro game, but I think I would have to say that this play--Ducks pitcher Jeff gold tossing his whole glove along with the ball because the ball as stuck in the webbing--for the out is the early front runner for play of the year!

Mike Trout Proves He Is Worth Much More Than the Los Angeles Angels are Paying Him

Some may say it is only preseason and there is no need to go all out, but that seems to be the only way that L.A. Angels outfielder Mike Trout does it. Your browser does not support iframes. I have a feeling that the Angels are going to be sorry that they stiffed him on his contract. Last season's American League Rookie of the Year and runner up MVP only made about...

Nationals phenom Bryce Harper tries throwing out runner rounding first…from left field

This may be the most Bryce Harper thing ever. Sure it’s only spring training, and the chances that the Nationals phenom would try a throw like this during the regular season is less than 5% (OK, maybe 10%), but that doesn’t make it any less impressive. Astros 3rd baseman Brandon Laird almost learned the hard way that if you take a big turn rounding first after a single, Bryce...

The optimist’s perspective on Mike Trout’s contract situation.

It’s well-documented. Mike Trout had one of the greatest individual seasons ever in 2012. Mike Trout is your new favorite Angels player. He is the Phenom of all Phenoms. Naturally, Angels fans young and old want him to stick around, and to be perhaps the first player to enter the hallowed halls of Cooperstown with the Halo’d insignia gracing his plaque.   So when Trout’s...

Why The Angels Made The Right Call On Mike Trout

I think we can all agree that last season, the Los Angeles Angels Mike Trout put on quite a show. But disagree if you must, the Angels did nothing wrong giving Trout that second-year salary.

Rawlings Announces Gold Glove Ballots Will Have Analytical Component, SABR to Be Presenting Sponsor

The voting process for all of Major League Baseball’s major awards have been long under criticism. However, few awards in any sport have taken as much flak as the Rawlings Gold Gloves. The Gold Gloves are voted on by fans and coaches, and the argument against that process has been twofold: Not only do the voters strongly tend to play to long-established favorites and bigger names...

They were called old-timers or purists, those who blanched last fall at the thought that Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera might be passed over for the MVP award after achieving the Triple Crown, leading the American League in batting average, homers and RBIs.
