Lessons Learned From 10 Nats Spring Trainings

It’s hard to believe the Washington Nationals are finishing up spring training this week en route to their tenth, yes, tenth Opening Day. We’ve now had a decade of baseball in Washington, and as the time has passed, there has undoubtedly been maturation both for the club itself, and for its fans.

The Young and the Restless

Sorry, I couldn’t help myself. These days, with the mood around the Mets because so dull and somber, which seemingly started the day we found out that Matt Harvey was going to need Tommy John Surgery, us fans have become a bit delirious, and we’re growing quite tired of the antics of Mets’ management. Today, the Mets announced their first non minor-league deal of the off season...

The year of the bag-over-your-head Tigers

DETROIT -- The 2003 Detroit Tigers were a team to remember, but not the kind that prompts bringing them all back for a 10-year reunion. They were the bag-over-your-head Tigers, the ones who lost an American League record 119 games. Oddly enough, two of the players on the Tigers' 2013 roster were in the starting lineup on March 31, 2003, Opening Day against the Twins at Comerica...

Camaraderie regardless of (insert slight difference here)

Once upon a time (we’ll say early-1990s), I was in middle school.  The President was Bill Clinton, and that was about when the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy for military personnel was implemented.  That policy was recently abolished by the Obama administration, but back then, even as an adolescent, I thought it was unfair.  Why does it matter who that particular soldier...

Jered Weaver would accept gay teammate; Robert Fick would be uncomfortable

Former MLB All-Stars — and yes, we say that lightly — Robert Fick and Dmitri Young have a new video podcast. They debuted their show on Tuesday, which was before San Francisco 49ers CB Chris Culliver’s homophobic remarks were publicized. The Southern California natives were joined by brothers Jered and Jeff Weaver (also from SoCal) for the show. Jeff, Robert, and Dmitri were...

Jered Weaver would be OK with a gay teammate

After the wildly ignorant comments of San Francisco 49ers defensive back Chris Culliver yesterday, you'll (hopefully) be pleased to know that not all professional athletes are total neanderthals.

A Reds all-decade team for the 1990's

Since we're currently nestled in between that terrible period between last season and next, and since there isn't much else to write about that is Reds-related, I've decided to put together a list of the best Reds players from the 1990's. I have compiled a full, 25-man roster in which I feel to be the best collection of Cincinnati players to wear the red and white...

Top 10 Eccentric Hairdos in the Majors

When I think of the top 10 eccentric hairdos in Major League Baseball, I tend to drawback to the 70′s where not much grooming occurred.  Does anyone remember how cool it was to sport one of those massive Afros, with the long side burns that look like pork chops, worn by Oscar Gamble? Afro King! How in the world was he able to keep his cap or helmet on his head while playing all...
