Thursday, March 02, 2017

The best laid plans can still leave you wanting in the late rounds, and if 2016 is any indication, one thing we’ll all want to add more is home runs.  Those that believe last year represents a new reality in power numbers must also recognize that you’re going to need a lot more.

There’s nothing worse than baseball in March – SB Nation

Thursday, March 02, 2017

Pitchers and Catchers Day is truly the dumbest day. This cannot be overstated. Like a good baseball sheep, I post something like, “PITCHERS AND CATCHERS ARE REPORTING” on Facebook, collect my millions of likes, and await the afterlife, where I’ll surely get a chance to use Facebook likes as currency in the snack bar. Until then, I’ll sit on social media like a fool, waiting for reporters to tweet pictures…

Wednesday, March 01, 2017

Major League Baseball and “Game of Thrones” will be working a cross-promotional project this summer when baseball’s in full swing and the HBO hit is supposed to return to TV (no date yet). Here’s how we think this went down: Someone in Major League Baseball’s promo office forgot to come up with a new idea, and performance reviews were due.

Wednesday, March 01, 2017

A stickier baseball could have unintended consequences – SB Nation

Wednesday, March 01, 2017

Rob Manfred is borderline obsessed with changing the game of baseball. He’s already gotten rid of the intentional walk, he’s seriously talking about changing the strike zone, and now? Now Rob Manfred wants to introduce a stickier baseball into the mix. You read that right. Manfred has commissioned Rawlings to make a baseball with a tacky leather surface to enhance grip, according to Jeff Passan at Yahoo! Sports. This is just…
