Red Sox Prospect Popped for Aggravated Robbery

Nearly three years ago, Pittsburgh Pirates fans held their collective breath when they saw “Jason Grilli” had been arrested for drug trafficking and was facing a minimum of 15 years in prison.

Johnny Manziel Part of Baseball Card Set

Back in June, the San Diego Padres made headlines by taking Johnny Manziel in the 28th round of the annual MLB Draft. And while he’ll never hit the diamond for the Friars, the folks at Topps have decided to take advantage of the Padres drafting the former Heisman Trophy winner and include him in their upcoming Bowman Draft baseball card set.

Wisdom and Links: Jeffrey Loria the Art Collector, Links and the Baseball Boogie

As we all know, Giancarlo Stanton is about to get paid. He’s so getting paid that my article on just how much he’s going to get paid isn’t just at the Baseball Continuum, but also here at The Hall. But what we are forgetting here is just how insane this possible deal is. I mean, jeez, this is JUST ONE MAN. And this is baseball, where one man cannot make that much of a difference...

Dwight Gooden: “I Never Thought I Would Make It To 50″

Dwight Gooden’s storied life reads like both a dream and a nightmare. On one hand…you’ve got a guy who, in 1984, made the Majors at 19, and became the youngest player to both play in an All-Star Game and bring home the Rookie of the Year Award. A year later, he was named the National League Cy Young Award winner, went 24-4 and posted the second lowest ERA (1.53) of the live...

Cubs Prospect Has Some Fugly Shoes

I’m pretty sure Kris Bryant is doing everything right at this point. The last time we heard from the Chicago Cubs prospect, he was responding to tweets and giving out an autographed game used bat to a fan. Now…he’s literally decorating himself with the team’s iconic Wrigley Field ivy. From my phone to my hands. Check out the #miZXFLUX app by Adidas. Wrigley Field ivy on my...

Wisdom and Links: The Idea of Barnstorming Appeals To Me, Links and The Greatest Cooks in MLB History

Beginning this week, a team of Major Leaguers will be touring Japan playing the Japanese national team in various cities around that country. And, you know what? I think that’s cool.
