Aramis Ramirez Player Projection No. 58

Key Stats: Is it me, or does Aramis Ramirez get a bad rap? I feel like he is one of those guys that doesn't get any respect. I think there is a mythos about him that he is old and each year is the year that he is going to fall apart because he has been around forever. Truth be told though, when you come up and wear a major league uniform at 19 like Ramirez has, and you are going...

What Your Shirsey Says About You

A lot of people don't really like the shirsey (t-shirt jersey), but I have personally always been a fan of them.

Like when the Brewers made the trade for K-Rod last year. You...

A set of wireless radio headphones...

Thanks to all of you, I had a lot of good experiences writing here over the past six months or so, well beyond any expectations I had going in, and I really didn't want to see that go away. Part of...
