A lover of baseball, travel, and traveling for baseball, at the beginning age of obvious decline. I probably see the game in a different light than you do. Or maybe not. Everything changes, from day-to-day. Let's just all say we all like sports, and agree on that.
A firm believer that when things get complicated, take a few steps back, take a deep breath, and look forth at the simplicity and beauty that is the Great American Game. Love it for what it is, and prepare to take all that it gives us, good or bad.
It was a tepid week in the NL East, where every team except for the Nationals posted a sub-.500 record in their last ten games, but even the Nats' successes came with a hard price.
Roy Halladay joins Johan Santana as once-great ace pitchers to limp their way through their walk years with major shoulder injuries.
Seriously, with Giancarlo out of the lineup, I think we can all legitimately make claims that the Marlins are no better than most organizations' Triple-A or even Double-A affiliates.
Our friend from Atlanta reviews Comerica Park and the gameday atmosphere during his trip to Detroit.
This week, everyone in the NL East cites underperformances from key contributors to the oft-cliched "slow starts."
A writer from one of our fellow SB Nation blogs seeks tips and ideas for this weekend's series in Detroit.
The Braves were the only team in the NL East to have better than a .500 record over their last ten games. Which is fantastic news for us fans.
Hi Rowbots. Do you guys even still refer to yourself as Rowbots? It's been a long while since I've visited Purple Row, which was right after when Ubaldo Jimenez no-hit the Braves in 2010; and...
Across the baseball landscape, April showers come into play, creating rainouts, and in some cases, massive snow issues in some regions. Gotta love April baseball!
Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg pick right back up where they left off in 2012, the Mets defy everything and start strong, while the Phillies stumble out the gate to the Braves, and the Fish are right where we expected them to be.
Well boys and girls, this is the moment we've all been waiting for. Spring Training is over, and the regular season is now just days away. A fresh new season of the sounds of bats cracking, gloves popping, complaining about Ks, failing with RISP
One more week of Spring Training, before we reach the home stretch of teams playing against random colleges, and home field exhibitions.
The extra week of Spring Training due to the WBC has been a hot topic this week. Players are getting bored, losing their focus, and in some cases (the Mets) have had more time to get hurt.
The first week of the Grapefruit League has come and gone, hope springs eternal for every team, and now the WBC is going to water most everyone down for the next two weeks.
This weekend, we embark on the start of a season anew, with Grapefruit League games beginning, and us getting our first looks at our favorite players after a very tempermental winter. That is, before most squads get gutted from players going to play
The week of pitchers and catchers reporting, with most all the position players hoping to show off their 38 pieces of flair and great smiles for a new season is almost upon us.
It's that time of the year where minor league deals are doled out like playing cards, and potential arbitration cases are sniffed and analyzed like bad scratch and sniff stickers. How many days until pitchers and catchers report? Less than two weeks.
It's difficult to pay attention to what the other teams have been doing, when the Braves easily made the biggest news this week.
Business is starting to pick up again, headlined by the return of a familiar face and the departure of a nuisance to the Braves.
And just like that a notable move happened in the division; as the days are now getting longer, so must the buzzing of an upcoming season.
With the coming of a new calendar year, the stories of the NL East can presumably only go up...right?
Since the world didn't end yesterday, it's back to the regular grind, but thankfully it starts with a weekend.
I may be a dirty Braves fan to you guys, but I am also an admirer of R.A. Dickey and also participated in the 2010 Dickeyface contest as well, as I do also love tacky photo manipulating. R.A. Dickey was always greatness with the Mets, and when I think of greatness, nothing else comes to mind other than the greatest actor on Earth: Nicolas Cage. So it was kind of a no-brainer to put a great pitcher with a great actor, in one of his greatest films ever. Presenting, The Wickey Man
Hey everyone, I'm one of those rare baseball fans that actually looks forward to and has enjoyed the first two World Baseball Classics, and I'm actually looking forward to the one in 2013. I was...
