Al Simmons, Lefty Grove Lead A’s to Game 7 Victory and Dream Series Championship

Mule Haas comes home with the winning run following an Al Simmons double. In 1954, Roy Mack went against his father’s wishes to sell the Philadelphia A’s to Kansas City real estate developer Arnold Johnson.

Prospect Jam at the Hot Corner for Phillies

Maikel Franco is on the rise, image- Jay Floyd Third base has been a troublesome offensive spot for the Phillies over the last decade.

Player Projections: Third Base

Let’s dig into the Giant’s third basemen for the upcoming 2012 season. Since Edgardo Alfonzo and Pedro Feliz manned the position from 2003 through 2007, the Giants have had little offensive power coming from the “hot-corner”. After Feliz hit 22, 20, 22 and 20 home runs from the 2004 to 2007  seasons respectively and Alfonzo hitting 13 and 11 home runs in 2003 and 2004, the...
