Tony Gwynn is a one-of-a kind loss

Former major leaguers pass away almost every day, just like everyone else. But losing Tony Gywnn? That’s different. I lost a friend and former teammate on Monday. See, everyone who ever wore a Padres uniform, even if it was briefly like me, became Tony Gwynn’s friend. His passing is the kind of loss that hits you harder than most, because of what kind of player and teammate he...

Dustin Pedroia Should Not Have Won MVP in 2008, Gary Sheffield Says

The 2008 season was Gary Sheffield‘s second-to-last in Major League Baseball, and it wasn’t one of his finest.

I just went to to pick up some Mets shirts for the season. In addition to wearing gear from the MetsOnline Store and shirts from other unofficial Mets clothing distributers like The 7 Line, I like to wear official player tees.
