What will change is that once or twice a week I will also be adding in some thoughts on the big league club. The 2015 season has gotten off to a very rough start for Billy Hamilton at the plate. The switch hitter is batting...

Video: Nolan Arenado Status Report: Still Ridiculous

As a Dodger fan, I root for Nolan Arenado 143 games a year, but I’ve come to understand that enduring great plays against your favorite team is sometimes the price you pay to watch him make great plays against the rest of the league. Arenado’s Colorado Rockies are currently playing a series against the Cincinnati Reds, which means I can just sit back and enjoy the show. Arenado...

Billy Hamilton – baseball player or glorified track star?

An increasingly rare sight in Cincinnati: Billy Hamilton rounding third and heading home. The Cincinnati Reds have been dreadful this year. At 18-25 and in the midst of an 8-game losing streak, they are as far from the team that won the National League Central division title in 2012 as the city of Cincinnati is from the West Coast. Manager Bryan Price is asking to get fired. Last...

This Week in Razz, Week 6

As some of the regular readers on Saturday mornings might have noticed, there has been a trend of "don't panic" or "it's only April/May" or even "your mom". I'm here to finally break that trend. Maybe. We are now six scoring (almost!) periods into the books, which means, according to my calculations, that we have six weeks in the books. That's about the extent of my math skills,...

Jon Lester, the guy who is now looked at as the ace for the Chicago Cubs, the guy who was brought in and signed a $155 million contract, is still without his first win. Not only that, but he has also failed to perform at least a decent pick-off throw to first base. Earlier this […]
