Michael Jordan gifts Kobe Bryant an amazing set of Air Jordan’s for his retirement

Derek Jeter’s retirement tour through baseball was slightly nauseating because every team had to give him gifts before his last game at their stadium. Kobe Bryant thankfully asked for teams not to do that for him on his retirement tour. At least until now, that was because he didn’t want to distract from the games at hand. Lasting legacy. A gift from The Boss to @KobeBryant...

Derek Jeter was Almost a Houston Astro?

It’s fun to play what might have been, right? Did you know that instead ending up with the New York Yankees, Derek Jeter was real close to being a member of the Houston Astros? It’s true. The Astros had the first pick in the 1992 draft and they were looking long and hard at the future Hall of Famer, but were scared off due to money concerns. In short…Houston thought Jeter would...

David Ortiz and the Greatest Age-40 Season Ever

We’ll start with a man made of straw. You might think that David Ortiz’s stated intention to retire at the end of the upcoming season would mean he’d be limping to the end, a shell of his former self, a one trick pony without a trick, but that, Dr. Strawman, is decidedly not the case. A few months ago the venerable yet vulnerable (stab him and does he not bleed?) Jeff Sullivan...

Bird showed everyone he could handle both, but more importantly he could...

Sunday Notes: Nicolino’s K, Rangers, Rosario, Andrelton or Jeter, more

In an era where punch outs are more common than ever, Justin Nicolino is an anomaly. Of the 328 pitchers who threw 50-or-more innings last year, 327 had a higher strikeout rate than the 24-year-old left-hander. In his rookie season for the Miami Marlins, Nicolino fanned just 23 batters in 74 innings. Despite the dearth of Ks, Nicolino enjoyed a modicum of success. He won five of...
