MLB Stands up to Cancer

For Game 4 of the World Series yesterday, MLB continued their partnership with Stand up to Cancer. Everyone in the crowd was given a card on the way in to the ballpark with the sentence ‘I stand up for…’, with… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: F. Scott Fitzgerald – The Beautiful and Damned

I’ve just finished reading Moneyball by Michael Lewis. As I mentioned in my previous post, I’d been told by a lot of people on Twitter that I should read it, and I did really enjoy it. I was worried that… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Michael Lewis – Moneyball

I finally finished reading Jane Eyre last night. I’ve not had much time for reading lately so it’s taken me a while! Too long for me to go see the film adaptation at the cinema I think, so I guess… Continue Reading →

I think this picture sums up the 2011 White Sox season:

Who Saw That Coming?

Well I guess pretty much everyone did. I woke up this morning to an email on my phone saying that the White Sox had released manager Ozzie Guillen from his contract, at his request. While I’m not too surprised that… Continue Reading →

Justin Verlander. Cy Young. MVP?

There’s been a lot of debate over the last month or so about whether Justin Verlander should be AL MVP this season. I think most of the debate is really whether any pitcher should be MVP when there is already… Continue Reading →

Congratulations to a Yankee Legend

Congratulations today to Mariano Rivera who earned his 602nd save ¬†last night in a game against the Minnesota Twins, moving him one ahead of Trevor Hoffman. As Hoffman retired before the start of the season, that gap will only increase… Continue Reading →

3 Strikes, They’re out?

After a rather busy, but very enjoyable weekend, I sat down to catch up on baseball for the first time since Friday night. The White Sox are now on a 7 game losing streak, putting us 14.5 games out of… Continue Reading →

Walking off with the White Sox season?

Last night was one of the rare occurences where a White Sox game starts early enough for me to watch all of it. Although now I kind of wish I didn’t! It was looking so promising, a 3 run homer… Continue Reading →

USA to UK…via Iceland?

My new shirts from the MLB Shop finally arrived yesterday morning. I’d had to contact MLB about where they had gone, as it had been 6 weeks, and according to the tracking page they had left the USA 6 times…. Continue Reading →

Nice grab, didn’t catch the runner though…

Here’s number 1999! I’m just gutted he didn’t get it today, as I probably won’t see it now. West Coast baseball means all the games start at 3 in the morning (UK time), so unless there’s a rain delay and… Continue Reading →

Ultimate Batting Practice? Maybe Not…

The MLB Fan Cave tweeted a link to this video earlier this week. http://twitter.com/#!/MLBFanCave/status/101053302896214016 When I first watched it, I thought it was quite impressive, but now I’m 99% sure it’s fake. Even so, it’s a pretty good fake video,… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: David Nicholls – One Day

First of all, it seems like forever since I started reading the last book, because I haven’t had much time for reading the last few weeks. But even though it’s taken me a while, I loved the book. I always… Continue Reading →

So Long Edwin and Mark…

The trade deadline is coming up rather quickly this year (Sunday at 9PM). I thought that we might slip through without any major moves this year, especially with the payroll being so high, but I got home from work today… Continue Reading →

600 Homers or 3000 Hits?

Last night, The MLB Fan Cave posed the following question on Twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/MLBFanCave/status/93080982881697792 (More impressive milestone: 3,000 hits or 600 home runs?). First of all, both milestones are pretty damn impressive. You have to be at the top of your… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: David Wells – Perfect I’m Not

The autobiography of Joe Torre that I just read was fantastic! I was quite lucky that I had a train journey to London and back on Friday, so I read the entire book in one day. The first part of… Continue Reading →

Now Reading: Joe Torre – Chasing the Dream

I just bought some new (well technically used) books from Amazon. Even if Hermes did leave the box outside in the rain and the calling card on the doorstep, the books seem to have survived! Looking forward to reading this… Continue Reading →

Chris Sale

1. I love Chris Sale. 2. This picture on FanFeedr of Chris Sale pitching in the fog against the Indians (taken by Jonathan Daniel) is awesome. 3. That’s all.

That’s gonna leave a mark…

My favourite baseball player¬†Gordon Beckham got hit in the face last night by a relay throw in the game against the Blue Jays. It looked really painful – the last I heard, his eye was working but he was going… Continue Reading →
