Albert Pujols is better than you think he is

Is The Machine still able to produce for the Angels? Before the 2016 season even got started, ESPN dubbed the Albert Pujols contract as the "worst in baseball".  Most casual fans love having him on the team and probably enjoy that smirk on his face when he bats, as well as the times he does hit a powerful long ball and climbs the all-time list of most career home runs.  Pretty exciting, right?? Then you have the more ardent fans who follow stats, watch all the games, see how many times Pujols hits into a double play, and more importantly, look at how much money Pujols is making, and for...

Terry Collins says Mets will be ‘very careful’ with Jose Reyes

Jose Reyes didn’t play in the Mets’ 5-4 loss to the Cardinals Wednesday night because of the left rib cage injury he suffered during the first game of Tuesday’s doubleheader — and Terry Collins sounded pessimistic about Reyes playing Thursday. “My guess is we’ll be very careful [Thursday], even if he’s OK,” the manager said...

Nationals 4, Indians 1: Indians stifled by Stephen Strasburg in loss

CLEVELAND: Indians manager Terry Francona often says momentum in baseball in is only up to the next day’s opposing starting pitcher. And on Wednesday, the Indians faced a brick wall in the form of Stephen Strasburg and lost to the Washington Nationals 4-1. The Indians won in walk-off fashion Tuesday night in their return to Progressive Field, a needed jolt after losing three in a row at the end of an extended road trip. But that momentum was halted by Strasburg, who threw seven scoreless innings, allowed only three hits and struck out seven. “He has a lot of weapons,” Francona said of...

Hard Truths: Felix Hernandez is not an elite pitcher anymore

Hey here is a bad post I don't want to write My mind keeps clinging to April 10th, when Felix pitched seven strong against Oakland, and struck out ten. With mild focus I can easily recall April 24th, 2015, when Felix turned Safeco Field into a Bacchanal as he destroyed Minnesota. I remember watching the ease with which he threw that night, retiring the first fourteen hitters in a row, me putting down my beer, and thinking I was going to have to write a recap for the first pitcher in history to throw two perfect games. In the end he settled for a shutout. Only five singles kept Felix from...

Mariners work well as a team in 7-4 win over Pirates and it is a beautiful sight

King Felix wasn’t sharp, but the rest of the team was. Baseball, like all sports, is a team game. Baseball, like other sports, can sometimes be taken over by just one player who wills their squad to victory. For the Seattle Mariners, for so many years, that player was Felix Hernandez, who would put the team on his back and try and drag them kicking and screaming to a 1-0 victory. Saying Happy Felix Day doesn’t ring necessarily as loudly and as enthusiastically as it once used to. Don’t get me wrong, I still love seeing the King take the mound, but he is a different King this year. And...
