The Guy Traded For Jerry Remy Turns 60 Today

Rookie Red Sox pitcher Don Aase was only 22 when he was traded (along with some cash) for Angels second baseman Jerry Remy on December 8, 1977. Aase turns 60 years old today. The kid had pitched pretty well that year—making 13 starts and going 6-2 with a 3.12 ERA. But Boston needed an upgrade at second from 33-year old Denny Doyle (who hit just .240 in 137 games in 1977). Enter...

Can Yankees’ Masahiro Tanaka win MVP, Cy Young, and ROY?

Where Does Cleveland Indians’ Lonnie Chisenhall’s Game Rank in History?

The game of baseball has a rich history of players having spectacular individual performances. However, it’s pretty safe to say that a certain player for the Cleveland Indians had a game he won’t ever forget on Monday. The Indians were playing the Texas Rangers on the road, and third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall decided to take matters into his own hands. Chisenhall went five-for...

Sox 99 – Nomar Explodes

The Sox continued hot in mid-May, spurred on by the tremendous hitting of third-year shortstop Nomar Garciaparra. The 25-year-old, still recovering from hip problems, slammed three homers-two of them grand slams-for 10 rbi’s in a 12-4 rout of shaky Seattle. Nomar became the fourth Red Sox player-and first since Fred Lynn in 75- to achieve 10 ribbies. He also became the 11th player...

Better California Angels team, 1979 or 1982?

If polled, MLB fans will undoubtedly say the 2002 Angels was the best team the organization ever put together. The Angels have had a solid team for the last several seasons, but much of the discussion has been about the lack of continuity and the disappointing win-loss record. The best all around Angels team was probably the 1986 version: the one that was a strike away from going...

Red Sox Look To Start Afresh

After nearly a decade of contending, the Red Sox have fallen hard during the last two seasons. Their struggles have been well documented and discussed ad nauseam. This afternoon in Yankee Stadium they begin the 2013 season with low expectations, but moderate hopes. No one quite knows what to expect from this club, other than they will be better than the 69-win team of a season ago...

Reggie Smith, Fred Lynn, and Jackie Bradley Junior

Jackie Bradley Junior and Reggie Smith have many things in common, but also many things different with the Red Sox.

Putting Mike Trout’s 2012 season against another AL ROY to win MVP

There was plenty of clamor over the fact that Angels OF Mike Trout did not win the AL MVP this season. Personally, I thought that Miguel Cabrera deserved the award, not just because he won the triple crown, but the fact that he had as good, if not a better season. To me it was that simple. Nothing against Trout; he had an MVP type season, but Cabrera was more deserving of the award...

While they were putting up big numbers in the box score, their equally big egos had to share space in the clubhouse, Carew says the...

George Brett doesn't really remember much about the last time there was an All-Star Game in Kansas City, at then Royals Stadium, in 1973. He was just a rookie back then.

Call Him Up: CWS Champion CFs From USC

He played centerfield on the Trojans for four years, and all four years his team won the College World Series. Side note: In 1973, USC played in maybe the most memorable college game ever.
