Red Sox fan takes crazy tumble down multiple rows going for foul ball at Fenway Park

A fan at Fenway Park had a very rough time going after a Jean Segura foul ball during Friday night’s Red Sox-Mariners game.Segura cranked a line drive into the upper deck, and a man whiffed on the ball, before tumbling forward multiple rows: That had to be a bit painful, but the embarrassment there probably outweighed the physical pain felt. AND he didn’t get the foul ball....

The shortstop evolution continues to raise the ceiling

In the history of Major League Baseball, it could be argued that nothing captivates in the way a uniquely special shortstop does. From the eye-popping defensive craftsmanship of Ozzie Smith and Omar Vizquel to the do-it-all tenacity of Derek Jeter, Barry Larkin and Robin Yount; the genre-changing performances of men who were deemed too statuesque to man the position, such as Cal...

Reasons for hope for the Seattle Mariners offense

The Seattle Mariners currently hold an 8-12 record, and currently sit in last in the American League West. They have fallen well short of the expectations set for them in preseason, namely that they could compete for a division title and, at the very least, make an appearance in the playoffs for the first time since 2001. Their offense has struggled mightily to open the season. However...

Five surprise MLB players off to great starts

There are some pretty standard names if you look near the top of the MLB statistical leaderboards two weeks into the season. Bryce Harper, Ryan Braun, Francisco Lindor, and Freddie Freeman are all pretty big stars who have gotten off to good starts.However, there are a few other names on that list who, at first glance, don’t seem to belong in the same category as those star players...

Matt Harvey leaves start with tight left hamstring

Matt Harvey’s night ended early on Tuesday, with a leg ailment being the culprit.The Mets pitcher was working in the sixth inning when he needed to be checked out by the team’s trainer. It was later announced Harvey was dealing with a tight left hamstring. If there is a silver lining, it’s that Harvey did not exit due to discomfort in the shoulder he had surgery on last year...

American League's top up and comers in 2017

While the established stars such as Mike Trout, Bryce Harper and Clayton Kershaw need no introduction and the big-name prospects have their names made by the plethora of "top 100" lists that make minor league hype the machine that it is, there is a middle ground of young players spread around the game that provides the true building blocks of the game. Each team has them and the...

Top 10 shortstops in baseball for 2017

There is no more exciting and rapidly developing position in the game today than shortstop. It has become a new beast over the past few years across MLB. By all indications, it's a wave that is just getting underway. In each of the past two seasons, a Rookie of the Year selection has been a shortstop, and in last year’s All-Star Game, of the six shortstops selected, each made his...

Jean Segura Isn’t the Only Hitter Fighting Regression Following a Unique Performance

After being a pleasant surprise at the plate for the Milwaukee Brewers during the 2013 season, Jean Segura‘s production completely went down the drain — until he got a fresh start in 2016 with the Arizona Diamondbacks. He didn’t earn an All-Star selection for his efforts, but it was such a unique performance that the Seattle Mariners acquired him in one of the 1,000 trades...

Jean Segura’s New Approach in Arizona

Throughout this offseason, I was a proponent of trading Jean Segura. I saw a shortstop who was getting steadily worse and whose value was being propped up by stellar defensive ratings that would only be declining. The Brewers presumably saw something similar, as they did eventually make the decision to trade him. This was an entirely justifiable choice, as Orlando Arcia was (and...
