Maybe it’s because I have no patience the past two weeks, or maybe just MAYBE these fools deserve this: When I sat here and thought about who is deserving of the Golden Plunger, the fact is that there are so many entities worthy, that we as owners voted on handing out an entire tool box: […]
I never saw it coming ..I never saw the Houston Astros beating the Yankees. They were the hot story early on and they just took care of baseball. The guard has changed in Major League Baseball. The talk of small market teams not competing has changed. The stock of the Royals, Astros, Pirates has risen […]
In the renewal of a storied baseball rivalry, the Chicago Cubs will be meeting the St. Louis Cardinals, but in a very rare twist, this one is in the NLDS. Do you think the Cubs can beat St. Louis in a seven game series? If so, why?

Greetings from the Hoodwood, where minds are blown everyday…. Getting The Gate: How high expectations get coaches and managers canned. Back in April, the Nats were the sexy pick. Matt Williams was coming off a 96 win division champ season and a Manager of the Year title. Bryce Harper was the moody brooding young gun […]
