Stolen Base Legend Vince Coleman Having Little to No Impact with White Sox

When the Chicago White Sox added Vince Coleman to the coaching staff as a baserunning instructor it seemed to be one more new piece in a season of high expectations. Coleman was a six-time National League stolen base leader and topped the 100-mark in his first three seasons in the Majors from 1985-87. He finished with 752 steals during his 13-year career. The hiring addressed a glaring...

Billy Hamilton’s Reverse Lineup Protection

You’d think that here in 2015, alongside our flying hoverboards and pill-based meals, we’d have finally eradicated the myth of “lineup protection.” The idea that having a dangerous hitter on deck would give the pitcher incentive to challenge the current batter with hittable pitches lest he walk him and put a man on for the better […]

Billy Hamilton leads Cincinnati Reds to blazing fast start with sweep

Is it too soon to make any long-term statements about the 2015 season? More than likely, as less than a week into the season so much can and will change.
