Batting Order Change

I've been thinking a lineup change might be in order for a while now.  I know many people were calling for Alvarez in the cleanup spot.  For my part, I was getting concerned about the Jones/Alvarez...

Tebow can hit a baseball too

6

Tebow apparently went to batting practice with the Memphis University team and hit 12 homers in 15 pitches. He played baseball in high school, but even if he didn't this wouldn't really surprise me--Tebow is just one of those amazing athletes. Also in the article is another great quote from Tebow on how he manages to stay so well grounded.

Karstens to Start, Raynor Designated for Assignment

I believe Charlie predicted this yesterday. The constant need for spot starters and relievers to be called up from Indy has forced the management to DFA John Raynor to make room for Jeff Karstens,...

Pirates at Astros

Hello everyone!  We've got our opening day starter on the mound, here's hoping we can find some consistent offense throughout the game today.  At least a few hits, we've just been so quite with the...

Astros at Pirates

Finally our Pirates are back.  Seemed like a long time ago they played, especially with the rainout infuriatingly corresponding with a televised game.  Looks like the opening day lineup to me,...

Phillies at Pirates

  We continue to draw big guns in the pitching deparment with Roy Halladay on the mound.  Halladay is the perfect example of why the Pirates can't just go out and get some starting pitching.  He's...

Who is the best nickel in the NFL?

I got to thinking the other day, and I realized that off the top of my head I couldn't positively name a nickel cornerback from any NFL team besides the Broncos.  Perhaps Karl Paymah is Minnesota's...

A Good Trend

To me, I have seen an excellent trend in our games this year, and it has to do with a single stat:  passes defensed.  The first game of the preseason, at San Francisco, we only defensed two.  The...
