Let me perform a quick public service for all Major League Baseball baserunners out there: Don’t run on Yoenis Cespedes. Ever. Under any circumstances.
Could Albert Pujols have been part of this postseason if he was still playing with the St. Louis Cardinals?
You probably think I’m crazy don’t you? How on Earth can Josh Hamilton – the man with talent seemingly on loan from God – be a downgrade for the Angels? Because I’m evaluating this from a purely logical standpoint.
A-Rod was probably the best hitter in baseball when the Yankees signed him to a record contract. With Rodriguez now banged up and not producing nearly as much for the 2nd straight year, it’s time to ask: has it been a successful signing?
Mike Trout’s numbers are nearly unheard of from anyone, let alone a rookie. But today I’m here to talk about the other star MLB rookie: Bryce Harper. He’s been the more hyped of the two, and nothing during Harper’s age-19 season suggests he’ll be anything other than a superstar.
