One Man’s Trash: All-Star Edition

With the All Star Game, we were all witness to the unpredictability of baseball. It's a long haul, and on draft day in March, very few, if any of us, would have picked Charlie Blackmon to make the All-Star Game roster for the National League. But that's the case, and Blackmon, along with several other surprises, was most likely scooped up very late in drafts or off of the...

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.

Highs and lows for the Colorado Rockies

If ever there was a week of roller coaster baseball for the Colorado Rockies, it’s been this week. Mid-June has provided the Colorado Rockies with the highest of the highs and the lowest of the lows.
