Andrelton Simmons Is Cool Again

Young players are fun, because young players are fresh. They give us something new to think about, keeping baseball just spicy enough to ward off too much boredom. Every young player comes with some form of strength, and it’s entertaining for a while. In time, we get used to it. Then there are new young players. When Andrelton Simmons was younger, he was all over the internet....

Trout's loss leads to an early end of the road for the Angels

The Anaheim Angels lost 6-3 to the Atlanta Braves on Monday. It was their second loss in as many days, after dropping their Sunday series finale against the Miami Marlins as well.

Watch Andrelton Simmons make amazing backgranded snab to show he’s best SS in MLB

Andrelton Simmons made a spectacular play in Saturday’s game that helped support the argument that he’s the best defensive shortstop in baseball. It happened when Alcides Escobar fielded a tough grounder to third, and showed off his cannon arm with a strong throw to first for the out.
