Five tool players

I admit it. I brought you here under false pretenses. Here you thought you were going to read about players or prospects that had the proverbial five tools like running, throwing, power, high batting average and character. But that is not what this post is about. I'll leave such tool worship to the scouts and prospect writers who are good at what they do. Instead this post is...

The best defensive plays for the week ending August 5th

The great defense got jacked up to another level this week. Some of these plays…man, I’m speechless. July 30th and 31st, Angels vs Orioles – Manny Machado’s got a cannon. Manny Machado is great at defense. Even if Albert Pujols is much slower in his older age, these throws in back to back games by Machado were just gross. July 31st, Braves vs Dodgers – Dee Gordon lays...

Adam Dunn Robbed Of Home Run After Ball Hits Top Of Wall Twice (Video)

Chicago White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn has hit 454 home runs over the course of his 14-year career, and has probably hit the ball to the warning track many times, as well. The power-hitting lefty has never had this happen to him before, though. Dunn drove the ball to deep left field on Saturday at Minute Maid Park, and Houston Astros outfielder L.J. Hoes leaped at the wall...

WATCH: Adam Dunn robbed of homer that hits top of wall twice

What are the odds of this? On Friday night, Chicago White Sox outfielder Adam Dunn got about as close to hitting a home run as one can get with the ball bouncing off the top of the outfield wall twice while still remaining in play. Your browser does not support iframes. While it’s not completely clear whether or not the ball hit Houston outfielder L.J. Hoes‘ glove, it looks like...

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...

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. Hoes is a pretty good sign that nothing exciting happened. Fortunately for those of us who love our trade porn, the August waiver period should be much more active as all the pretenders in the division and Wild Card races should...
