Dodgers’ prospect Jose De Leon making a name for himself

It isn’t often 24th-round draft picks create much buzz, but Jose De Leon is doing his best to change that by striking out all of the hitters in the minor leagues (almost literally). The Dodgers drafted De Leon in 2013 with the 724th pick. The native Puerto Rican was young for a college pitcher, as he began his pro career with the Arizona Rookie League Dodgers. He finished up with...

Charging the Mound with Brad – Volume 5

It started with Alex Rodriguez in 1994, and then Derek Jeter in 95, and a year later the Red Sox brought up Nomar Garciaparra. I remember arguing with my friends that ARod was 10 times the shortstop that Garciaparra and Jeter were. His power, his speed, his glove and, most importantly he wasn’t a Yankee or Red Sox player, made me quite the fan. Cut to 2001 and Rodriguez is in Texas...
