Joel Sherman of the New York Post posted a Top 5 list ranking the best managers and baseball executives and I took a look to see what he came up with. Not only did the Baseball Maverick fail to make his top five, but he wasn’t even listed among the five honorable mentions either. I’m guessing Sherman won’t be getting any holiday card from Sandy next December. 1. Brian Sabean...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: The Fickleness of Pitching

View image | gettyimages.com A wise man once said that those that do not learn their history are doomed to repeat it. Nowhere can this be seen more than in baseball free agency.
