reviewed Detroit Tigers. October 28, 2012
Detroit Tigers
Ty Cobb's reputation as a racist is a wee bit more overblown than it should be. I realize that to a lot of critical theorists who can't look at Tony the Tiger without spotting racism, I'm …
reviewed San Francisco Giants. October 25, 2012
San Francisco Giants
Despite the juice, the cream, and the clear becoming big time factors in the home run's recent surge in baseball, looking at the all-time home run numbers can really boggle one's mind. In the …
reviewed Pinstripe Empire. October 05, 2012
Pinstripe Empire
A great baseball team had better have a lot of truly great stories in its history, and with the New York Yankees, there are just tons. With the new book Pinstripe Empire, Marty Appel makes a concentrated, …

Cincinnati Reds: Vintage World Series
No review for this. Not a proper one, anyway. Having not fulfilled my writing obligation last month and being in danger of not fulfilling it this month, I recently ordered a set of vintage World Series …
reviewed Three Nights in August. April 11, 2012
Three Nights in August
I've been a stalwart champion of the Billy Beane school of statistics ever since I first read Moneyball. I've defended the idea that, in spite of never winning a Pennant, Beane's new method of collecting …
reviewed St. Louis Cardinals. October 23, 2011
St. Louis Cardinals
So you're in the market for a baseball team, and you have a certain set of qualifications that never, ever waver: You want to have a team that wins a lot, but without raiding the whole of the league for …
posted a Quick Tip about Philadelphia Phillies. September 29, 2011
Philadelphia Phillies
Without a doubt they have the best pitching staff in baseball and that almost always will win a series.
reviewed Texas Rangers (baseball). September 03, 2011
Texas Rangers (baseball)
The Texas Rangers are, if anything, a team with some very unique distinctions. Their all-time roster reads like a list of baseball legends, especially in the managerial department: Whitey Herzog had this …
reviewed Little Big League. August 15, 2011
Little Big League
Little Big League is certainly a 90's movie. There's a precocious little kid in it who gets to do something really big against all reason, logic, or real world possibility. It holds a cosmetic resemblance …
reviewed Rookie of the Year. July 20, 2011
Rookie of the Year
There was once a brilliant spoof of this trope on Futurama: The New New York Mets (and for those not familiar with the show, "New New York" is not a typo) sign Leela to rescue their flagging attendance. …
reviewed Sweet Lou and the Cubs. July 14, 2011
Sweet Lou and the Cubs
I must make an apology to all of the Cubs fans who may be reading this. In my recent attempt to honor the recently retired all-time managing great Lou Piniella, I set out to read and review a book about …
reviewed Los Angeles Dodgers. June 18, 2011
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Los Angeles Dodgers are less a baseball team than they are a mystique, a special state of mind. The Yankees are identified with dominance. The Cubs are identified with losing. The Reds are identified …

,,The United Countries of Baseball
It's funny. I like it. In my experience cheering for the New York teams and the Chicago White Sox, pretty accurate too.
posted a Quick Tip about 2009 MLB All-Star Game. June 16, 2011
2009 MLB All-Star Game
These things are little more than chances for fans to see if player A is really better than player B. Giving home field advantage in the World Series to the league that wins is a load of grade-a bullshit. …
reviewed Chicago White Sox. June 03, 2011
Chicago White Sox
The Chicago White Sox can't win even for winning. They're not exactly what you would call a charmed team. The images the White Sox provoke in the minds of baseball fans really aren't fair, because the …
reviewed Boston Red Sox. May 13, 2011
Red Sox 1
As a Yankees fan, you had to know I wasn't planning to come into a review of the Boston Red Sox expecting to write a slew of wonderful things about the team. But as a reviewer, I'm obligated to …
reviewed New York Mets. April 07, 2011
New York Mets
My first baseball hat was a Mets cap. The team was the toast of New York City after their 1986 World Series victory, and I was a five-year-old kid in Buffalo who loved his backyard baseball but for whom …
reviewed New York Yankees. March 30, 2011
New York Yankees
The New York Yankees teams from the late 70's and 1996 hold special places in the hearts of Yankee fans. That's because the team, in those years, broke the mold that its been traditionally fit into. The …
posted a Quick Tip about San Francisco Giants. January 10, 2011
San Francisco Giants
One of the sport's true classic teams. Formerly of New York, they went to San Francisco in 1958 and built a new legend and history, as well as one of baseball's most understated but great fanbases. Finally …
posted a Quick Tip about Atlanta Braves. November 15, 2010
Atlanta Braves
One of the classic baseball teams, and the National League team of the 90's. Even though they only won the World Series once in the 90's, the still won four Pennants and are the only team to have ever …
posted a Quick Tip about Atlanta Braves. October 28, 2010
Atlanta Braves
To me, they are the Yankees of the NL. You either love'em or hate'em.

This is a pretty awesome map! Looks like the Dodgers need head East to claim a bit more land!

Chicago White Sox
Not in love with the White Sox. Big rivals of the Twins and Cellular field in Chicago leaves something to be desired.
