I think I speak for everyone when I say Nolan Ryan headlocking Robin Ventura and bashing him in the skull like a boss is the greatest moment in baseball history. Okay, maybe not the best, but the list goes “Jackie Robinson,” “Kirk Gibson’s gimpy home run,” then Nolan Ryan emasculating Ventura.If you are on the Internet, you do not need me to tell you that Reddit is a place full of wonderful things, but today there is nothing more wonderful than said Nolan Ryan/Robin Ventura railroading as interpreted by the 1987 video game classic R.B.I. Baseball.It’s two beautiful artistic endeavors brought together as one:Now if we can only get someone to create a Baseball Stars cartridge that won’t erase your season every two days and use it to recreate the rest of 1993, we’ll be set.The post The Nolan Ryan Robin Venture Fight, Now In 8-Bits appeared first on With Leather.

Many people think Kevin Youkilis‘ days as a viable third baseman are over. But several baseball executives appear to disagree.
Youkilis “has multiple contract offers on the table,” according to Alex Speier of WEEI. Youkilis is weighing both high-dollar, one-year options and multiyear deals.
Youkilis was traded midway through last season from the Red Sox to the White Sox, who...
The Chicago White Sox have signed infielder Jeff Keppinger to a three-year deal worth $12mm, ESPNChicago.com's Bruce Levine reports.
Keppinger is a .288 career hitter over his eight-year major league career. Last season for the Rays he hit .325/.367/.439 9 home runs and 40 RBIs.

The Chicago White Sox and free-agent shortstop Jeff Keppinger have an agreement in place on a three-year deal, according to a source.
Keppinger, 32, spent last season with the Rays, batting .325 with 9 home runs and 40 RBI in 115 games. He also plays second and third base.
With the Red Sox, it’s a conundrum as old as the Curse of the Bambino. When a heralded player switches sides to the Yankees, do you boo him?
Such is the question potentially facing Red Sox Nation with the news that New York has offered free-agent Kevin Youkilis a one-year deal worth about $12 million. Of course, Boston already shipped out Youkilis early in 2012, after friction...

The versatile veteran, who can play third, short and second, is a .288 career hitter who likely will fill a valuable utility role for the White Sox. A fourth-round pick by...
Since 2010, ten different players have played third base for the Chicago White Sox. One of them has posted a positive WAR, and he’s currently a free agent, looking for a multi-year contract. The position has been something of a trouble spot, and on Wednesday the White Sox addressed said trouble spot by agreeing to terms with Jeff Keppinger. Word is it’s a three-year contract...
Zach wrote earlier today that he believed Jeff Keppinger was the best option out there for the White Sox at third base. He got his wish, as the team inked former Tampa Bay Rays infielder to a three-year deal for around $12 million dollars total.
There was an initial wave of disapproval about the move amongst Sox fans via twitter, Facebook, and at least for me, amongst my circle...
