This is the second in a two-part series in which I’m naming my all-lifetime team, that is the greatest players who’ve played a minimum of ten seasons between 1974 and the present.
With just a week to go until pitchers and catchers report for spring training, and discussions of the economic state of Major League Baseball and its impact on the free agent market growing rather old, it’s time to turn our hot stove focus away from the present and do a little reminiscing. To that end, […]
Lacking the time to write a proper Cooking with Chas this week, I thought I’d take a slightly different approach. This will be sort of an Open Thread Thursday style post, I suppose, except I do have something specific to introduce as a conversation point.
In the second part of this analysis, I’m going to look at the Hall of Fame resumes of a handful of borderline candidates.

All of the post-season awards have been announced, the Jake Peavy trade rumors have died down, and none of the major free agents seem to be in a hurry to find new […]
Since it’s not easy for even the most dedicated fan of the game to keep track of everything that happens during the off-season, I’m going to try to make it a point to provide a brief update each week of the significant transactions that occurred over the last 7 days. Some of these, of course, […]
