Nick Swisher loves photo day

Ah, yes. Spring training media day. Each MLB team runs the players through a conveyer belt of photographers, TV cameras and interview stations to compile stock footage for the upcoming season. As you might have guessed, Nick Swisher loves media day -- the photo part, in particular. We don't really know this for a fact, but it sure seems like it based on his pose for the cameras...

A three year Indians review: Left Field

It is time to continue with the three-year comparisons for the Indians. At this point, it is too late in the year to do half-season comparisons, so I will be doing full season versus this year.

Saw the Staten Island Baby Yankees last night take on the mighty Auburn Doubledays....

We went with Mustang and his squeeze, the lovely Big Bang, to the Leo Pinckney Field at Falcoln Park, which is a lot of title for a tiny place.  Good signage in the outfield, thanks to the State Republican party. Waitresses in the box seats, decent burgers, clean rest rooms - what more is there?  So... If you're looking for a deep baseball scouting report, forget it. What do...
