Chipper Jones: The Yankee That Never Was

 

In many cases, it is difficult to truly appreciate greatness until long after a player has left the game he loves. As a result, many stars end up epitomizing the “You don’t know what you got till it’s gone” philosophy.

 

Colorado Rockies' 2009 Season Preview

*From Protect the Plate

After winning 90 games and riding a hot streak all the way to the World Series in 2007, the Rockies fell to 74-88 last season.

Now that the center piece of their lineup is gone, it's starting to look like the Rockies are destined to endure their eighth losing season in nine years.

With manager Clint Hurdle on the hot seat and an impressive group of young players, however, anything's possible. Just look at the 2007 Rockies.

Impressions of the WBC: Cuba Barely Breaks a Sweat Vs. South Africa

In the opening game for Group B of the 2009 World Baseball Classic, Cuba easily bested South Africa 8-1. Cuba’s 13-hit attack included six home runs, a new WBC single-game record.

But let’s not get carried away.

Yes, the Cubans are incredible athletes with a passion for baseball. Yes, they combine well-honed skills with fiery determination. They have always been an international force in baseball. They are certainly favored to win Group B and move on to the second round in San Diego.

New York Yankees Should Trade Alex Rodriguez

Do the Yankees need A-Rod to win the World Seres? NO. A

-Fraud has already showed the Yankees that he's great during the season but is a choke artist once the playoffs start. Yankee fans must be wondering how do you sign a player to a $400 million contract and no ring not even a trip to the World Series.

Jeter has four rings. How many has A-Rod got? He was suppose to be the face of the Yankees.

Yankees First Spring Training Cuts

The Yankees made their first cuts today; J.B. Cox, George Kontos, and Kanekoa Texiera were re-assigned to minor league camp, and Andrew Brackman was optioned to Class-A Charleston.

J.B. Cox had a 7.71 ERA in two games. Final line: 2.1 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K

George Kontos had a 27.00 ERA in two games. Final line: 1.1 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

Baltimore Orioles' 2009 Preview

Baltimore Orioles 2009 Preview:

Mostly unknown by casual baseball fans, the Orioles have arguably the best prospect in all of baseball. Catcher Matt Wieters is the early favorite to win the 2009 AL Rookie of the Year award.

The athletic 6’5” switch hitter has drawn comparisons to Red Sox captain Jason Varitek, which gives the people of Baltimore something to look forward to for the next few years.

Fantasy Baseball Projections: Infield

In anticipation of the draft for The Hazean’s 2009 fantasy baseball challenge, I decided to dabble in some preseason projections.

The problem with that thought, though, is that I really do not spend as much time working on my fantasy baseball knowledge as I do football. So I brought in some fantasy baseball muscle to compile these projections.

Hip, hip, hooray! Six to nine weeks without Alex Rodriguez doesn't sound so bad to Derek Jeter.
