Ichiro Ties Ty Cobb…Kinda

With an opposite field single in the fifth inning Friday night against the St. Louis Cardinals, Ichiro Suzuki tied Ty Cobb on the all-time hits list. Well…kinda. Depending on who you ask, the Miami Marlins outfielder tied the former all-time hits leader with hit number 4191 or just got one hit closer to the 3000 hit milestone. Confused yet? You shouldn’t be.

Evil Ones Huge Favorites In Tonight's Opener

Every betting site this side of Pete Rose seems to be heavily favoring The Bronx Embalmers in tonight's opener of a series at The Concrete Bunker On 161st Street. We're sure that all this wagering on baseball is just for "entertainment" purposes. Although, are we the only ones who think it's kind of creepy to have "DraftKings" as an official sponsor of Red Sox baseball on TV? Anyway...

Josh Donaldson, Late Bloomers, and First-Time All-Stars

What made the 2015 All-Star Game much more intriguing than past years was the constant number of surprises. Despite the controversy surrounding Pete Rose and his being accepted (maybe) back into baseball, it was a real, cool treat to watch Rose and other Hall of Fame Redlegs take the mound pregame.

Rose, Buck: Play All-Star Game like it counts

An excerpt from my latest Chicago Tribune column: ******* The All-Star Game didn’t determine home-field advantage in the World Series when Pete Rose was a regular participant in the ‘60s and ‘70s, but he recalled league pride placed a definite emphasis on winning the game. That meant the best players played most, if not the entire game. Rose routinely got four at-bats when...
