What if the MLB Had A Nickname Jersey Day Sed ut perspiciatis, unde omnis iste natus error sit voluptatem accusantium doloremque laudantium, totam rem aperiam eaque ipsa, quae ab illo inventore

Most of you probably know about this one but, for those of you that don't, the NBA premiered their nickname jersey day. You could argue that this is an opportunity for players to engage in a little self-expression to enhance their personal brand, or you could say that it's another shameless marketing tactic to sell more merchandise. You'd probably be right either way...

Barry Bonds Home Runs

Someone just tweeted out this video of Miguel Cabrera absolutely crushing a spring training pitch from Jonathan Papelbon. It's a pretty incredible home run both for the power and for how perfectly he makes contact. Your browser does not support iframes. "Was that over the tiki hut?" Anyways, it made me want to watch some Bonds home runs - here are a few of...

Zito Was Just a Guest on Train's Podcast

I've seen this time of year called 'Haiku Season' by baseball writers because you start doing literally (okay, theoretically) anything to fill the void left by the absence of anything baseball related. Earlier today I got noticeably excited when the news broke that Michael Young would retire rather than re-signing with the Dodgers. That counted as big baseball news. So...

Which Position Player Are You Most Excited For?

I started commenting on this article by SF Giants Rumors and it made me realize just how excited I am to watch Brandon Belt's 2014 season. Right now I'm sitting around a 7 on the pessimism scale as far as the Giants as a team. I think the Morse signing was good, I like the Pence deal, hell I even like the 2-year Lincecum deal. But it's a little disheartening to...

Why We're Lucky to Have Posey, Not Puig

As much as I dislike the Los Angeles Dodgers, I don’t really like bashing teams for the behavior of one individual. People make mistakes, and you shouldn’t judge an entire franchise on the mistakes of one employee. Kind of like how I don’t rag on the Seattle Seahawks for having drug suspensions because it was just one player . . . oh wait, no, it was a lot of players, and...

SF Giants New Year's Resolutions

Maybe I’m a homer. Scratch that, I’m definitely a homer. So with that disclaimer out there, I have no problem admitting that I fully expect the San Francisco Giants to bounce back in 2014. I think they’ll contend for the NL West title, and if they make the playoffs, I expect them to make noise theway they have in the last two even-numbered years. But it won’t be...

Before too long, the San Francisco Giants are going to need some help from the farm. Ryan Vogelsong and Tim Lincecum are on one and two-year deals, respectively, with lots to prove. Tim Hudson is on a two-year deal that should end in retirement. Marco Scutaro is aging, Michael Morse is a one-year fix, and Pablo Sandoval is approaching free agency. We’re optimistic about...

Breaking Down the 2014 Batting Order

Christmas is over, which eliminated basically the only exciting thing between the end of baseball season and the start of baseball season. Is it March yet? No? Damn. Oh well, guess it’s time to day dream about the 2014 season a little bit more. Bruce Bochy and Co have some decisions to make the lineup, what with offseason acquisitions and 2013 player developments. Here’s...

Willie Mays and Willie McCovey Talk about Candlestick Park

Depending on where you go, the most famous “Willie” will change. In certain parts of the U.S., the most popular Willie is Willie Nelson. With the booming popularity of Duck Dynasty, Willie Robertson is the most famous man with that name in many parts of the country. But in San Francisco, there are only two Willies. There will only ever be two Willies. Willie Mays...
