Looking at Blackmon’s breakout season

Baseball as the saying goes, is a marathon, not a sprint. Which makes it strange that one hot month can still, even an age flooded with statistical analysis and awareness of the dangers of small sample size, make such a big impression. And not just in the eyes of a fan either. A hot month can ensure a young player keeps getting looks well after his prospect status has expired, and...

Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort at it again

In Denver, there are fewer people more infamous than Dick Monfort. Widely criticized for the way he and his brother Charlie run the Colorado Rockies; it is safe to say Monfort’s not the most popular cat in Colorado.

From Chicago to Colorado: a case for Jeff Samardzija

It is no secret that the Chicago Cubs are shopping around Jeff Samardzija. Again he has rejected an extension offer from the Cubs, which means he’s the hottest item on the trade market.
