Sean Casey's time on the Hall of Fame ballot was short lived

The 2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame class was announced on Wednesday, and not surprisingly, former Reds first basemen Sean Casey was not among those selected for enshrinement.In fact, this year will mark the first and last time Casey's name appears on the Hall of Fame ballot, as he (and 15 others) failed to garner at least five percent of the vote. Sadly, "The Mayor...

Hypothetical Hall of Fame Ballot – Marshall Garvey

A year after the Baseball Writers Association of America neglected to vote in a single player, the 2014 ballot provides a greater array of more enticing choices. Not everyone will get in (sorry Mike Timlin and Richie Sexson), but even the most implacable analyst would be hard-pressed to not pick at least three. Here are the inductees on my hypothetical ballot, along with runner-ups...

Lou Olsen's 2014 Hall of Fame Picks

For the 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame, we have 36 names to choose from.  As is tradition, every member of the voting committee gets to list ten names.  In order for someone to make it into the Hall, they must appear on 75% of the ballots.  To quote the classic comedy Caddyshack, “some people, simply do not belong”.  The fact that Richie Sexson and Eric Gagne appear on this...

2014 Hall of Fame Ballot (Indians Edition)

The ballot for the 2014 class of the Baseball Hall of Fame was announced yesterday and included very few former Indians and likely no players that would be wearing Chief Wahoo. In whole, the ballot is stacked, although it is up in the air who will actually be allowed in. The greatest baseball player of all time is on the ballot, but will likely be passed by because he was rude to...

Brewers on pace for record low production at first base

MILWAUKEE -- First base is supposed to be a position of offensive strength. Baseball's best lineups usually have a run-producer at first base. Ever since Richie Sexson was acquired in 2000, the Milwaukee Brewers have had no problem filling first base with Sexson, Lyle Overbay, Prince Fielder and Corey Hart. This season has been a totally different story. With Hart and top backup...

Houston’s Center Field, Finally Beaten In 2013

With the blast, Montero became the first player to homer to dead-center field at Minute Maid this season.

The Seattle Mariners released another batch of outstanding commercials

Your browser does not support iframes. The Seattle Mariners have produced some terrific commercials over the course of the past several seasons. In fact, the Mariners have often received more positive buzz about their advertising than they have about their play on the field. From a commercial that perfectly captivated the phenomenon that was Ichiro in his prime, to a folk...

Top 10 Indians DH

The designated hitter was the most recent significant rule change in baseball, occuring in 1973. Because of this there are only 39 seasons of designated hitters to evaluate. Over those years, the Indians have only had two long term DHs, making this the least impressive of every top ten positional list. The rankings from 3-10 are players who have played between one and three years...

Most valuable players through Brewers history

In the short history of the Milwaukee Brewers, there have been a handful of solid performances in baseball's smallest market. This year, Ryan Braun looks on pace to put together one of the best, similar to his MVP season of 2011. But how good is Braun's performance this year in comparison to the rest of Brewers' lore? With just three MVP's in the history of the franchise...

Past Trade Review: Sexson Goes To The Desert

A few weeks back, I stumbled upon a blockbuster trade that happened nearly nine years ago. The trade included several people who had already established themselves as productive major league players and some prospects that would go on to have solid careers as well. The ten-player deal between the Diamondbacks and Brewers has so many recognizable names, so I figured it would be fun...

The Cleveland Indians aren’t very offensive right now

It is the outfield and first base. Since they signed Johnny Damon, they should check and see if two more fomer Oakland A’s are available:  Ricky Henderson and Jose Canseco. They couldn’t do much worse and they would surely generate fan interest. For first base, how about Richie Sexson? Isn’t it time to once again bring Russell Branyan back?

Why Being A Mariners Fan Sucks

First off, don't let the title fool you. I am a huge Mariners fan. I can't even count the number of 2-1 losses I've suffered through over the past two seasons. More than most, I bet. I am also a realist.  I have come to terms with the fact that the Mariners are a low-level organization. Cellar-dwellers. Under-achievers. Belly-scratchers. Etc. In the greatest sports...
