Chris Archer: baseball players face ‘harsher criticism’ for protesting

“The other sports that do that are predominantly black. Our sport isn’t...” In the wake of President Trump’s recent criticism of the NFL and its players kneeling for the national anthem, Oakland A’s catcher Bruce Maxwell made waves by becoming the first baseball player to join in the national protest designed to bring awareness to police violence against people of color in America.

First off, the Diamondbacks clinched a playoff berth and celebrated by jumping in the pool at Chase Field. The Dodgers were quite upset by this and California Senator Kamala Harris called the D-Backs disrespectful. (Not really. That’s a reference to the Diamondbacks and Senator John McCain getting upset about the Dodgers taking a dip in the pool at Chase Field when they clinched in 2013.) Potential new...

Who will manage the Tigers in 2018?

Here are some candidates to manage the Detroit Tigers in 2018 With the announcement that Brad Ausmus will not be brought back to manage the Detroit Tigers in 2018, we can now speculate on candidates to fill the vacancy. General manager Al Avila has promised a thorough and extensive search for the Tigers’ new skipper, with just a few parameters: The new manager will either be a manager in the minor leagues, a major league coach, or have managerial experience in the major leagues. Curiously, this would have ruled out Ausmus when he was hired to manage the Tigers four years ago. Internal...
