Padres to Host MLB Mid-Summer Classic in 2016

It’s been almost 23 years since the phrase “All-Star Game” was said with any legitimate purpose in San Diego, but you can never be too late when it comes to that sort of thing. The San Diego Padres and Major League Baseball officially announced this morning that the All-Star Game would be hosted at Petco Park in 2016. Now that’s a refreshing change of pace. The Padres haven’t...

A Process Of Elimination: My 2015 Baseball Hall Of Fame Ballot

It is time once again for the Baseball Hall of Fame election process to take over baseball’s airwaves. And while the process over determining inductees has turned away simply from on-field evaluations to a mixture between old-fashioned baseball card stats and an assimilation of a morality based war on “baseball crimes”, the voting game has never been more convoluted. For the...

Is Gary Sheffield a Hall of Famer?

“I am sure it will be mentioned and debated but from my standpoint I know who is in the Hall of Fame,” Gary Sheffield told The New York Post following his retirement in 2011. “A lot of them don’t belong in the Hall of Fame. If someone wants to debate me, check the stats.” As we head into the stretch run of the 2015 Hall of Fame season, I think it is pretty safe to say that...

The Struggles of Selecting Hall of Famers

The 35-year-old is actually a veteran of the old ESPN series Dream Job, but he’s spent most of his career on...

End of season post-mortem: Miami Marlins

All things considered, the 2014 Miami Marlins were a bit of a surprise. Sure, they were never truly a playoff contender — especially after Jose Fernandez tore his UCL in mid-May and needed Tommy John surgery — but they hung around .500 for much of the season. Coming off a year in which they lost 100 games, there may actually be some reason for hope on South Beach. Preseason Prediction...
