Apparently, Sept. 16 is a great day to join the 3,000-hit club. Hall of Famer Dave Winfield did so in 1993, while fellow Hall of Famer Paul Molitor did it in 1996 -- both as Minnesota Twins.

His baseball resume is about as complete as it gets. In twenty-two seasons, Dave Winfield was a first round draft pick by the San Diego Padres, won a World Series with the Toronto Blue Jays, was a seven time Gold Glove outfielder, won the Silver Slugger six times and played on twelve All-Star teams. In 2001, Winfield was enshrined in Cooperstown, as a Padre, who retired his number...
Not a pitch has been tossed, but Alex Rodriguez already owns The Back Page. The tabs hate him - even more than they hate the mayor: No cheap feat. They didn't probe the Iraq war as deeply as they have investigated whether A-Rod pissed on the floor of his cousin's home.

The ’95 Tribe won 100 games in a strike-shortened 144 game schedule, won their first Central Division title and made the playoffs and World Series for the first time since 1954. Six players made the American...
