Baltimore Orioles scouting the independent leagues hard

The best place for an Independent Baseball fan to hang out this month—at least aside from a major league spring training site where many a hopeful is playing—might be at the Buck O’Neil Baseball Complex on the south side of Sarasota, FL.            At one time, this same site hosted the Kansas City Royals’ innovative Baseball Academy.  Now, it is the Baltimore...

Mets Card of the Week: 2013 Topps Set

2013 TOPPS SET Bought a box of the new 2013 Topps baseball cards, and I thought I’d share some of the highlights. Forgive me in advance if this week’s entry is less Mets-centric than the average post. (I fear that this happy recap might even take a brief detour or two into the Bronx.) COLLATION I received 90% of the total set in my box, with not a double in sight. Such ruthlessly...

Adam Greenberg’s Old Company; Or, a John Rheinecker Tale of Heartbreak

You’re familiar with the story of Adam Greenberg, even if you’d completely forgotten about it until just now.

Adam Greenberg & Others Who Got a Second Chance

As Bradley Woodrum wrote a week ago, Adam Greenberg finally got a second chance in the majors, thanks to a petition on Change.org. He struck out in three pitches against R.A. Dickey, but there’s little shame in that. He approached it like a big leaguer: “He beat me last night, but I’m really hopeful that last night isn’t the last night we’re going to face each other....
