Baseball's Luckiest Hitters

View image | gettyimages.com Earlier we focused on those MLB players with the worst luck to begin the season, looking at LD% and BABIP.  Now we look at those around the Majors hitting lots of fly balls, and still owning a BABIP above .300.

Who Will be Baseball’s New Strikeout King?

Yesterday, I wrote on the legendarily hard to strike out Joe Sewell. Sewell once made the claim that any hitter who struck out over 100 times in a season must be blind. If striking out 100 times makes you blind, I have no idea what striking out 200 times makes you. Major League Baseball did not have a hitter reach the 200-strikeout plateau until 2008. Since then, those ranks have...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: The Fielding Chronicles — First Basemen

View image | gettyimages.com Why should I bother reading this? Catchers are one thing, but first base is the dumping ground for guys that can’t handle the glove. At least that’s the general consensus. With catchers we looked at all of the current regulars with at least 2000 innings. Since first basemen play more often we can up the ante to 3000 innings. One of things you...

BALTIMORE -- As the Baltimore Orioles prepared to play before their home fans for the first time in two weeks, the sights and sounds around Camden Yards on a lovely Monday afternoon were all about baseball.

Chris Davis’ Strikeouts Just Keep on Coming; Should Orioles Be Concerned?

The Major League Baseball single season record for most strikeouts by a hitter is 223, set by Mark Reynolds in 2009. If Chris Davis has anything to say about it, that record will be a distant memory come the final day of the season. The Orioles first baseman, only two years removed from hitting 53 home runs, is on pace for a whopping 272 strikeouts. So far this season, Davis has...

Orioles Fan Turns Back to A-Rod

Surprisingly enough, Alex Rodriguez hasn’t been making much noise since we saw his calligraphy on an apologetic letter.
