Game 70: Pirates 7 Reds 6

If I had to venture a guess, I’d assume that teams that score seven runs in an inning have a pretty good winning percentage throughout the history of baseball. I could leave the recap there, since that’s about all the substance I have to offer due to my focus being mostly on my softball league’s championship this week (look, we lost tonight, but we won the winner’s bracket...

Josh Harrison < 500

Josh Harrison is why we watch sports. In June of 2013, I saw him playing in a Triple-A game in Durham. He played well enough that I came back from the game thinking to myself, “Yeah, I think he’s probably ready to take Brandon Inge’s spot as a utility player.” In early July of 2014, he was a Swiss-Army knife All-Star. The selection was objectively a bit undeserved because...

Jackie “Brady” Jr.

We’re all well aware of JBJ’s prodigious struggles over the past two seasons.  It’s been frustrating, painful, and just plain sad to see one of the Sox’ former top prospects look so completely lost at the plate.  I don’t want to discount what he’s done in the field, because it has been immensely valuable, and he’s a supreme talent in center field, but he’s been...

Rick Porcello 'excited' about Tigers backing him in Final Vote

DETROIT -- Right-hander Rick Porcello is hoping to become the first Detroit Tiger to win the Final Vote for an American League All-Star Game roster spot since third baseman Brandon Inge in 2009. According to the latest voting totals, Porcello is third among five candidates with Chicago White Sox pitcher Chris Sale in the lead. And it's hard to argue with Sale getting the nod with...

Rod Allen Drinking Game 2014

The Rod Allen Drinking Game was originally created by Big Al at the now-defunct Wayne Fontes Experience and has since been updated over the years by D4L (and one year at Walk Off Woodward).  It has officially become cemented as a drunken-staple in the Detroit sports community.  And it’s not just a brainless, alcoholic’s activity, either — there are things you can learn...

Dodgers Expected To Sign Unknown Utility Infielder, So Let’s Get Ready To Welcome Justin Turner

(via) I think we all knew that the Dodgers were going to need to bring in some additional infield depth, because it’s all we’ve been talking about lately. This team may or may not have a second baseman, they have a shortstop who can’t stay healthy for more than ten minutes at a time, and they have a third baseman who just put up two of the worst seasons we’ve ever seen before...
