Calling the Pen: Happy Birthday, Brooks!

It’s embarrassing to admit, but I didn’t fully appreciate Brooks Robinson until a few months before everyone else did. That’s when the Hall of Fame third baseman amazed the baseball world by shutting down Cincinnati’s Big Red Machine in the 1970 World Series. For Brooks, it was a glove story. For me, it was a […]

It was hard to find a place to watch the Cubs in Wrigleyville on Friday night

A packed Brickhouse Tavern showing basketball and hockey over Cubs baseball as the Cubs made their Apple TV debut Friday night. | Sara Sanchez If you stream it, they won’t come, unless you do a better job explaining where games are to fans. Friday night, I was wandering around Wrigleyville because I had foolishly forgotten to take a key picture for an upcoming piece on the Cubs Hall of Fame statues around the ballpark, but I didn’t mind. I wasn’t planning on watching the Cubs on Apple TV+ because that isn’t a streaming service I currently have and I find MLB’s...

A look through Giancarlo Stanton’s milestone homers

Photo by Mike Stobe/ Let’s take a trip down memory lane, from Big G’s first long bomb in 2010 to his 350th this week. On Wednesday night, Giancarlo Stanton reached an important career milestone, launching the 350th home run of his career with a first-inning two-run homer off Baltimore Orioles starter Tyler Wells. A fairly significant milestone on the route to the 500-homer threshold that is often used as the baseline for Hall of Fame power hitters, Stanton’s feat was historic in two ways. First, he was the seventh-fastest to the mark, taking 1341 games. Only Babe...

Miguel Cabrera joins 3,000-hit club

Bally Sports Detroit The Marlins legend is the 33rd player in MLB history to reach this prestigious milestone. On Saturday afternoon, as he has done countless times before, Miguel Cabrera ripped a single through the right side of the infield. But this was no ordinary single: it was the 3,000th hit of his Hall of Fame-caliber career. Nearly 19 years ago, Miggy broke through to the major leagues with the then-Florida Marlins. He was widely regarded as an elite prospect, but quickly exceeded the hype by propelling the club to the 2003 World Series title. Cabrera had...

Saturday Rockpile: Miguel Cabrera getting 3,000 against the Rockies is fitting

History could have been made two nights ago against the New York Yankees, but a controversial intentional walk was called by manager Aaron Boone in Cabrera’s last plate appearance. So the next opportunity waits for Antonio Senzatela and the Colorado Rockies instead, who haven’t faced off against the future Hall of Fame hitter since 2017. That Cabrera...

With the shift of today’s Cubs game from 1:20 p.m. CT to 7:05 p.m. CT, I’ve got a bit of time to examine some news that came out of baseball’s Hall of Fame in Cooperstown this morning. To wit: Highlighting these changes is a consolidation of eras into two timeframes – the Contemporary Baseball Era, consisting of the period from 1980 to present day, and the Classic Baseball Era, consisting of the period prior to 1980 and including Negro Leagues and pre-Negro Leagues stars.
