RICHIE SEXSON NEWS

Chris Capuano, Milwaukee, and a Familiar Feeling

In the offseason of 2003, I was 14 years old. I was also used to watching some very bad Brewers baseball. They were coming off a 68-94 season, their third consecutive year with less than 70 wins and second finishing last in the NL Central. They would do this once more in 2004 before finishing .500 for the first time since 1992. Now I liked sports plenty back then, but didn’t learn...

Where Have All the Grand Slams Gone?

The Grand Slam is one of the most exciting plays in all of baseball. It is the play that scores the most runs in an instant, the best thing a batter can do at any point in any game. Based on the Indians pitching staff this season, a single grand slam would likely be enough to win any given game, yet they have hit a total of zero this season. The Indians are not alone here as seven...

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

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...
