Links: Let’s not talk about the losing streak

The injuries are piling up as well as the losses, but all is not ill in Tigerland. The Detroit Tigers’ losing streak has reached seven games — and one-half if you count the suspended game from Sunday that saw the Athletics take the lead before Mother Nature relieved herself on Comerica Park. Suffice to say, it has been a tough week for the boys in the Olde English D, as well as their fanbase.

Oakland themselves acquired Morales a month and a half ago from the Toronto Blue Jays for a low-minors infielder named Jesus Lopez and a small chunk of international free agent cap space. Both the Yankees and A’s came into 2019 with reasonable playoff aspirations and were facing injuries to their 1B and DH depth. The...

MLB Bullets and the kids are alright

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is finally getting the call, and he’s just one of several great young ballplayers. The Yankees injury woes continue. A Japanese game ends with a home run and a player flip, not a bat flip. You probably heard that Athletics first-round pick Kyler Murray went to the Cardinals (of the other sport) with the first pick in the NFL draft. That almost certainly ends his baseball career and it’s probably the last time we’ll mention him in these pages, unless he does something like throw out a cool first pitch some day. Ah yes. The NFL draft. The one day of the year...
