By The Numbers

153 games down and 9 to go with the Cardinals owning a 2 1/2 game lead over the Brewers for the 2nd wild card spot in the National League.  Ironically, that’s exactly the same advantage that the Braves held last year over the Cardinals with 9 games to play.  That didn’t work out so well [...]

The Crawl to the Finish Line

by on September 17, 2012 · 0 comments

If you agree that the MLB season represents a marathon and not a sprint, then the last 15-16 games must represent the last 2.6 miles to the finish line.  Unless you can expand your finishing kick over that kind of distance, then a good portion of that can become more of a crawl than a [...]

How fitting that in the “Year of the Pitcher” we would be tasked with casting a ballot for the Baseball Bloggers Alliance’s Walter Johnson Award, choosing the top pitcher of the season for the National League. Thankfully, this award is also based upon the regular season, which keeps us within the “Year of the Pitcher” [...]

Let’s call a spade a spade for just once and admit that Bud Selig is after the Dodgers.  Sure, he’s going after the team under the guise that an ownership transfer is in the best interest of baseball.  That one is right up there with oceanfront property in Arizona and a bridge I’d like to [...]

I’m big on the Giants.  Yep, I’m HUGE on the Giants.  Giants Dodgers Padres Rockies Diamondbacks  They’ve got a full year of Buster Posey, Madison Bumgarner, and they’ve got some potential breakthrough talent (Brandon Belt).  Even if Huff drops off a bit this year, they still have the makings of a 95-win team in that [...]

On the morning of January 19th, I started collecting links – as many as I can find with minimal effort – that discuss the Albert Pujols contract discussions. Why? Who knows, yet here they are. Oh, and to serve you all, our three loyal readers! The Daily Pujols certainly won’t be a comprehensive list, but between [...]
