    lawsuit gavel

    There is a legal doctrine known as “The Baseball Rule” which gets teams off the hook when fans are injured by foul balls. Should it be abolished? Maintained? Or is there a middle ground?

  7. Mike Trout asked a girl out to the prom for some boy

    May 19, 2014, 11:03 AM EDT

    Mike Trout

    By the way, it is “the prom,” not just “prom.” In my day a prom required an article in front of it. Saying “go to prom” is like saying “go to hospital.” We’re not British, so just cut that crap out right this second.

    At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

  13. Don’t diminish Hank Aaron’s greatness by calling him The Home Run King

    Apr 8, 2014, 5:25 PM EDT

    Hank Aaron AP

    Henry Aaron is NOT The Home Run King. That sounds like I’m going to follow with some rant about Barry Bonds breaking his record and how terrible that was … but I’m not. My thought here has nothing to do with that. Henry Aaron is not the Home Run King because that silly title would do nothing but diminish his greatness.

    Apr 7, 2014, 10:15 AM EDT

    JJ Hardy Getty

    Initially when J.J. Hardy sat out a game last week with back spasms the Orioles said it was merely a precautionary move early in a long season, but the shortstop had to skip Sunday’s game with more back spasms.

With apologies to Charles Krauthammer, who coined the term Bush Derangement Syndrome, our awards will commemorate Great Moments…

    Brad Ausmus

    LAKELAND, FLORIDA — Brad Ausmus opened his office to the media at 8:45. It was impeccably neat and organized and during his meeting he spoke accurately and incisively about various medical subjects. Based on the comments of regular Tigers writers, this is juuuuuust a bit different than the Jim Leyland years. The medical talk came…

    lance lynn getty

    In a column posted last night, Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch argues that Lance Lynn gets a bad rap from newer metrics. Relying heavily on his wins, and the Cardinals’ record in his starts, Strauss puts Lynn in the same conversation as teammate and 2013 NL Cy Young runner-up Adam Wainwright, and two-time…

    SOCHI, Russia — Well, the overwhelming thing that is the Winter Olympics has completely thrown me off my 100 greatest baseball players ever schedule. So it goes. We’ll pick up where we left off after I return and recover and get back on U.S. time. I predict this will be sometime in July. In the…
