Each year, as the Major League Baseball trade deadline comes and goes, many fans are left disappointed, as they watch their favorite player or players shipped to a new city. These days, most of those deals are done to save a little money or to buy into the team's future with prospects.
Finally! The Major League Baseball owners realized that their product was grinding to a dull-stop. Teams were losing their younger fanbases exponentially, year-by-year. In spring training, this year's rule changes have definitively increased the pace of play. Does everyone like them? No, but I like most of them and you probably will too!
As the New Yorkers began to gather to commemorate the 21st anniversary of the horrific attacks on the city and the nation, a former Major League Baseball pitcher who became a police officer in New York City, was killed Sunday morning on his way to work. The assignment he was heading towards was the September 11th memorial ceremony in lower Manhattan.
When you want to find out who is the best at something, you ask people that are in the same business. You ask people that compete against that person or business. When it comes to great Major League Baseball players, a guy like former Boston Red Sox star, Los Angelas Dodgers' outfielder Mookie Betts is probably a solid reference. Betts dished out some hefty praise on a New York Mets pitcher on Wednesday night and that player had nothing to do with Timmy Trumpet.
