The Dearth of Personality

Since the passing of George Steinbrenner in 2010, Major League Baseball has been lacking a certain something, as if the audial landscape in baseball has been a little too quiet. Too often, the sound bites offered up by the majority of MLB players and managers devolve into hackneyed banalities, tortured metaphors, and clichéd baseball-oriented generalities. It’s enough for one...

Oh, Dickerson, We Hardly Knew Ye

As mentioned in the post game report last night, the Indians have demoted Chris Dickerson in what was a very oddly timed move. Dickerson was originally purchased from the Tigers in July to help with outfield depth after injuries to Michael Bourn and Nyjer Morgan really thinned things out.
