Eric Chavez signs minor league deal with the.....YANKEES...

I did not see this coming. I guess I just expected Chavez to end up with a west coast team, most likely the Dodgers. With ARod's injury issues lately, I think Chavez has a solid chance at seeing a...

Chris Carter after the 0-33 start

A couple weeks back John wrote a piece on Chris Carter's rough start to his MLB career. It sparked a lot of conversation, and many thought the slow start was evidence that he was going to struggle...


Chris Carter and the 2011 A's Offense.

It's Monday, it's slow at work, and the fact that there will be no A's baseball again until february is depressing me so I wanna talk a little about Chris Carter and what he might add to the 2011...

John Sickels' Top 20 Pre-Season Prospect Review

  Not a whole lot of in-depth analysis, but has some interesting things to say about a few guys. One thing that really stands out to me is how under the radar Arnold Leon really is. Sickels had...


Chris Carter at AA Midland

I wanted to get some "updated" opinions on Oakland 1B prospect Chris Carter. Last season there was a lot of discussions about this guy and what type of player he might become. I've heard comp's...
