We have enough signatures!
Here, I'll start: Rafael Palmeiro won the 1999 AL Gold Glove at first base, despite playing just 28 games there, and being pulled early in three of those.
From what I can gather from the posts in this thread, a team built by PSDers would consist of:
C Yadier Molina, Buster Posey, Salvador Perez
1B Miguel Cabrera
SS Troy Tulowitski,...
It is difficult to narrow it down to three. The Royals have been so awful for so long, their fans should get a free pass at being homers. So Hosmer, Moustakas (looking improved this spring!) and...
ROYALS: Johnny Damon, Jermaine Dye and Carlos Beltran when they were brought up together and then each traded away by the Royals. Helluva an outfield right there. Damon was the first to go. Kansas...
That is a defeatist attitude--exactly the opposite of what anyone should feel on Opening Day.
You guys are all missing the point. Baseball's Opening Day is fun. Having it as a spring holiday would promote the game's importance to American culture--something that is sorely undersold. Think of...
Baseball fans argue about quite an array of topics, but I think we can all agree to sign this petition:...
I believe in baseball more than any god. You could say it is my religion. Opening Day should be one of observance.
My five favorite pitchers of my generation: Greg Maddux, Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, Bret Saberhagen, and Zack Greinke. Given their standards, here's my active top-five: Greinke, Clayton Kershaw,...
Ichiro deserves discussion. Also, look for Hosmer and Salavador Perez.
Grantland had a fantastic article about this earlier in the week: http://grantland.com/features/alex-rodriguez-alternate-career-history-red-sox-yankees/
With their starting rotation, methinks the Royals' 'pen will get a LOT of work this season.
AL East: Tampa
AL Central: Kansas City
AL West: Texas
AL Wild Cards: Oakland, Detroit
NL East: Atlanta
NL Central: St Louis
NL West: Los Angeles
NL Wild Cards: Washington, San Francisco
I think they should change their names to the Cleveland Cats. Modify the logo to a smiling feline caricature, Wahoo the Cat. The team would experience a veritable boon in merchandise sales as a...
I was pretty excited to learn Jose Bautista (@JoeyBats19) is following me on Twitter. I realize most Twitter users are comedians, b-list celebrities and starting athletes. I am interested in any...
Someone posted this in the comments section of the Kansas City Royals blog. I wonder if its real world application would yield success.
Caveat: I realize my ideas make too much sense and thus too radical to ever happen.
The league should be modeled after the soccer tables in Europe. Take the 16 richest teams and they are the...
Half time with bands.
Cheerleaders at half time with bands.
If advanced stats had any effect on perception during the 1970s or 1980s, I believe Rico Carty, Steve Busby, Jack Clark & Mike Scott would all be rated better.
"I love the Kansas City Royals front office!" said not one person since 1994.
Which team has the most knowledgeable/ least obnoxious baseball fans? Or conversely, the least knowledgeable & most obnoxious?
i always remember mike piazza's story being that of a dodger...perhaps it is because mets' fans tend to blabber on so much, so i tune them out more...hee hee
the divisions need to be realigned by time zone...the northwest is a geographic/travel nightmare & a competitive disadvantage to the teams stuck in it
a new commissioner would be nice, too
