Chicago's Jackie Robinson West creating LLWS buzz, wins opener

  Win or lose, youngsters from Chicago will leave a lasting impression on the Little League World Series. The Jackie Robinson West team is comprised of all African-American players. On Thursday, their league made its first appearance in 31 years in South Williamsport, Pa. — the latest indicator that baseball is making small strides in an effort to lure young African-Americans...

Hall Of Fame: ’90 Braves Best ‘90s Mets…Again

You can still hear the clattering. The Hall Of Fame vote – made public almost a full day ago – has elicited much moaning and shouting about how flawed the process is. The words floated about are “broken,” “unworkable” and “antiquated.” You won’t hear any argument here; your intrepid columnist is about to join the clatter. An MSM member as estimable as Dan LeBatard...

Le Batard Outrage Proves Again How Media Perceives Fans

Yesterday's Hall Of Fame announcement came with the usual controversy and debates over who was and wasn't elected, and who did and did not receive votes. However, the biggest storyline that developed after the announcement, in my opinion, was Dan Le Batard's decision to turn his ballot over to Deadspin. Like most people, I shook my head in disapproval when I first heard that a writer...

Dan Le Batard is the BBWAA member who gave his Hall of Fame vote to Deadspin

The awful, terrible, shameful BBWAA member that provided Deadspin with a Hall of Fame vote isn't an old voter without his pulse on the sports world anymore - it was Dan Le Batard of ESPN. Le Batard's rationale behind giving up his ballot was sound and logical. You can read the whole thing over at Deadspin, but this is the money paragraph. "I don't think I'm any more qualified...

Deadspin buys Baseball Hall of Fame vote

On Tuesday, shortly after this year's Baseball Hall of Fame ballot was released, Deadspin revealed that they had bought a voter's ballot and would be crowdsourcing their readers to fill it out. The idea is brilliant on the surface, especially considering how disastrous some of the ballots submitted were last year, not to mention the ballots submitted by people who don't even...

Will Greg Maddux Bust the Unanimous Barrier?

The BBWAA released the Hall of Fame ballot today and I count 6 players that you can reasonably associate with the Cubs: Rafael Palmeiro, Jacque Jones, Sammy Sosa, Lee Smith, Moises Alou and Greg Maddux. Of course, all but Sammy and maybe Lee Smith are more closesly associated with other organziations. Sammy won't be getting in and neither will Lee Smith with Maddux and Frank Thomas...
