If Not Ichiro, Then Who?

Eric Wedge has said he’s considered moving Ichiro out of the leadoff spot for the Seattle Mariners. Ichiro is a leadoff hitter. If he isn’t hitting there, he’s still considered a “leadoff” type hitter. The Mariners aren’t going to be Read More

Stop with the Money Talk

People have stressed the fact that Prince Fielder signed a ridiculous contract. So what if it’s ridiculous? The guy is still under 30 (27). He absolutely rakes. He might be the best power hitter in the game. And he isn’t Read More

How do You Replace Victor Martinez?

I’ve covered the fact that Victor Martinez is out for the year. Now the question is how the Tigers replace him, and who with. The name Prince Fielder tends to come to mind for a team who needs a middle Read More

Should You Break up the Big 3?

The Boston Celtics won a ring with the “Big 3” that consisted of and still somewhat consists of Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett. Now the team is a little different. Ok, maybe a lot different. Now the team Read More
