Another week, another set of fun things that went on in this wonderful game called baseball. Lets get on with it! (more…)
- Zack Greinke to miss two months, Carlos Quentin needs a reality check: I’m not saying Carlos Quentin should be suspended two months (as suggested by an obviously upset Don Mattingly), but I will say (more…)
I know it has only been a week, but how exciting is it to have baseball back? So many things happened opening week it will be hard to put it in one list. Lets give it a try, eh? (the “eh” is for all my Blue Jay fans out there) (more…)
