While the topline news about this season has been the continuing march toward three true outcomes (walks, strikeouts and home runs), there are other ways 2017 has been different than 2016, 2015 and in some cases all seasons before.

ESPN jumps at chance to sell baseball showboating lie to kids – New York Post

Posted: Friday, April 21, 2017

Even by ESPN’s destructive standards, this was disgusting. Perhaps what made it so ugly is that it wasn’t expected from any of the four. In fact, I still don’t believe they actually believe what they said. I think it was another exercise in bad-is-good pandering. Last season, the Nationals’ Jayson Werth, after hitting a game-ending single, stood on the field and, into a dual TV and field microphone, expressed his…

Ouch! Soph. baseball player in Okla. sets national record for getting hit by pitch – USA TODAY High School Sports

Posted: Friday, April 21, 2017

This record has to hurt. At least a little bit. A sophomore baseball player in Oklahoma recently set a national record that would have made early 20th-century major leaguer Hughie Jennings proud. Inola (Okla.) baseball player Jordan Spurlock has been hit by a pitch to reach first base 30 times this season. 30 times! As the Tulsa World reports, that number is believed to be a national record. Per the…

Posted: Friday, April 21, 2017

ANALYSIS/OPINION: There are places all over America where you have girls who have a passion for the game of baseball and pursue it, often in isolation, considered a novelty. Last weekend in southern California, many of those young girls gathered for an event sponsored by Major League Baseball that validated their passion and told them they weren’t alone. It was only right that Alexandria’s Codi Dudley was part of it….

Nearing the end of the regular season, the best teams in baseball have risen above the pack. But what about the best bats in baseball? We took a look at the stats so far to see which teams have the best offenses in the nation. No, they might not be the top-ranked teams in the country, but as they say, the best offense is a good offense. Or…

The Undefeated Wants Another Campanis Racism Moment for Baseball – NewsBusters (blog)

Posted: Thursday, April 20, 2017

Left-stream writers love to criticize conservatives as people who are stuck in the past. But truth be known, they are mired in yesteryear as it relates to race. One of their pet narratives is to claim we are as racist a nation today as we were in the long ago past. They’re doing it again now in conjunction with the recent start of the major-league baseball season and baseball’s annual…

Baseball: Foothill has made a dramatic turnaround – The Mercury News

Posted: Wednesday, April 19, 2017

The Foothill baseball team began this week undefeated and ranked No. 1 by this publication, impressive under any circumstances but even more so when you consider where these guys finished last season. From 6-18 last spring to 14-0-1 at the start of play this week. What in the heck has happened at the Pleasanton school where the Giants’ Brandon Crawford once starred? For one, the team is healthy, something it…

It’s time for a progressive, smart PED plan in baseball – Yahoo Sports

Posted: Wednesday, April 19, 2017

There is a place for chemistry in baseball and all other sports, and it is in a tightly regulated, ever-evolving partnership with doctors, chemists, politicians, ethicists, management and players to develop fair rules for sport while acknowledging sport itself can benefit from the use of drugs. The rules in place now don’t work. They never have. They never will. Easing them won’t, as the governing bodies of sports argue, open…

Boise State drops wrestling program, intends to add baseball – Idaho Press-Tribune

Posted: Wednesday, April 19, 2017

BOISE – Boise State athletic officials announced Monday that the school is immediately shutting down its 58-year-old wrestling program and is now focusing on adding a baseball team to its roster of men’s sports. The decision to end the wrestling program, which produced two national champions and six Pac-12 team titles between 2000 and 2011, left former Bronco wrestlers stunned and a little bit frustrated that a sport with a…

Weston baseball rolls over Westhill – StamfordAdvocate – The Advocate

Posted: Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Caption Close WESTON — The Weston baseball team began the season confident it had had two quality starting pitchers, but with the new pitch-count rule in place across the state, knew it would need a reliable third starter. Enter Ryan Orefice. Originally hoping Orefice could eat up innings, he has done much more his last two starts. Taking the mound for a start against Westhill, Orefice threw his second-straight complete…

Most of us who contribute on Seeking Alpha do so with passion about whether a stock or a sector is a buy or a sell; heading up or tailing down. Contributors advance fundamental and technical analysis and are usually supported by ardent commenters.

If you were one of the many that used an early-round pick on Marte in hopes he would replicate his 47 stolen bases from last year, you are probably scouring your league’s waiver wire searching for answers.
