The Worst MLB Teams in the Past 10 Years

In sports, we often celebrate the best of the best while trying to ignore the pathetic teams. These teams never get much mention, which is a mistake. By ignoring these horrendous teams, we lose out on the opportunity to marvel at the hilarity of how bad they really are. They can make us feel better about our favorite more mediocre franchises, especially if the playoffs are out of...

Astros provide run support for Lyles in 12-4 rout of Blue Jays

The Astros were a hit Friday night at Minute Maid Park. They put up a run-scoring double a home run and a triple to center field before L.J. Hoes supplied their first single in the third inning — and that was only the beginning of an avalanche of offense during a welcome return home. Jonathan Villar set a career high with two of the Astros’ three triples — the most they have...

Rangers roll past Astros

While my life has been rolling along, so has the Rangers’ winning streak.  I was delighted to check scores during my busy weekend and see my boys swept their in-state rivals, the Astros.  Oh, and they picked up another outfielder too. Alex Rios joined the team Friday as they headed to Houston.  He got to watch the offense put on a little show, taking a 9-5 victory in the opener...

Boston Red Sox start the road trip off with a bang. Stephen Drew's walkoff propels them to a series win.

  Early in the week I previewed the Red Sox series with the Astros where they embarked on a ten game road trip. The Red Sox won their fourth series in a row after taking two of three from the Astros this week.  The key for the Red Sox winning this series was the offense producing at such a high level. The Boston Red Sox scored 22 runs throughout the series which includes being...

August waiver period trade candidates

So, the trade deadline turned out to be kind of a bust. Anytime when the highlight of deadline day is all the puns that came from the Orioles trading L.J.
