• How long will it take MLB hitters to adjust to these defensive shifts that are now being devised and used against the hitters?

    Or do the hitters really need to need to? Is it just another fad? Your opinions please.

  • Did the Braves make a good move by signing Ervin Santana?

    Keep in mind that he is supposed to replace Kris Medlen the Braves ace. Or was it a desperation move to placate their fans?

  • What happened to Will Myers?

    He was the ROY by default for a while there a couple of months ago. His stats lately have looked pretty ordinary. Do you still consider him a legitimate ROY contender?

  • Does anyone really like the present All Star Game format?

    I think 34 players is too many. Last night's constant stream of players entering the game by what seemed liked a parade of non-entities and unknowns was extremely distracting. I liked the older method of the actual twenty-five best players being their league's representatives

  • How about that Hanley Ramirez' first start for the Dodgers at short stop?

    Before he showed up, in the previous 25 games, all the Dodgers' short stops combined had 1 double and 1 home run and were batting at or below the Mendoza Line. Along comes Ramirez and equals their XBH production in just one game! So, they (whoever they are?) say he is a defensive liability and mercurial in temperament and prone to sulking,... show more

Along comes Ramirez and equals their XBH production in just one game! So, they (whoever they are?) say he is a defensive liability and mercurial in temperament and prone to sulking, I'll still take that kind of offense from the shortstop position! GO Hanley! Add, not a baseball question. What's with all these weird questions this AM about non-baseball subjects. Broken hearts? Sports work out programs? Alcohol related deaths, Two sillies about Cricket? Cricket? Geez, enough already! Royal Brit's look a likes, What is the best time to go to a game? Huh? How do you order tickets? Should I play sports? C'mon, Give me a break! PLEASE!

  • Who else thinks that Mike Trout has been in a snit?

    He has said publicly that he should be the starting Center fielder and really thinks that Left-field is beneath his talents. Plus a relatively poor 2013 start lends credence to the theory. Are you listening Scoiscia?

  • Why? Why all the wailing and gnashing of teeth concerning the Hall of Fame voting?

    Quote follows: "Voting shall be based upon the player's record, playing ability, integrity, sportsmanship,character, and contributions to the team(s) on which the player played." That's it! Those are the instructions on the Hall of Fame ballot. All are very subjective in tone if not in fact.
