  3. Four theories about the Hall of Fame voting changes

    Jul 27, 2014, 12:20 PM EDT

    hall of fame logo large

    So I have three – no, wait, just thought of another one, so four – theories about the Baseball Hall of Fame’s decision to reduce the time a player can spend on the ballot from 15 years to 10. I am not opposed to this rule, by the way. I have long thought 15 years was too long for a player to be on the ballot. And I am absolutely for some changes in the Hall of Fame process …

    140715-Adam-Wainwright2

    Adam Wainwright chose to follow baseball’s unwritten rules and salute one of the all-time greats in his final All-Star Game. Somehow, he became the bad guy.

    Jul 6, 2014, 9:45 PM EDT

  9. Nelson Cruz, Melky Cabrera and the silent majority

    Nelson Cruz could be elected to the All-Star Game. Melky Cabrera and Ryan Braun, too. Shouldn’t the public be more upset about this?

  10. Derek Jeter is signing a pretty cool ball today

    And with that, we probably have the only thing he and Pete Rose really have in common.

  11. Should MLB opt for safer bases to reduce sliding-related injuries?

    May 9, 2014, 11:15 PM EDT

    Jacoby Ellsbury

    Unknown to many, baseball’s hard bases have been the culprit of many injuries to star players in recent years. Is it time for Major League Baseball to take additional safety measures and go to a softer base?

  13. Tweet of the Day: Exactly how I figured the Donald Sterling ban would spill over into baseball

    You can’t hate the Pete Rose Truth Squad. You can only tip your ugly hat to them for their dogged persistence.

  14. “Respect the Game?” Phooey.

    Apr 22, 2014, 3:08 PM EDT

    Tom Lynn -- Getty

    Baseball has survived “threats” like Carlos Gomez before. And has even thrived because of them. Should guys like him respect the game? How sad that’d be.

  15. Boswell: “Harper may be the Nats’ seventh-best player”

    Bryce Harper Getty

    That’s patently ridiculous, of course. But that’s the kind of nonsense you get when you start attacking guys for their alleged lack of hustle.

  16. 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.

  17. One PED-fueled, record-breaking felon is good. The other PED-fueled, record-breaking felon is bad

    My favorite thing about PED hysterics is how they totally freak out when one compares PED cheats to spitballers, bat-corkers and amphetamine poppers, claiming it to be apples and oranges and an illegitimate exercise in moral equivalency. Yet they themselves  love to compare gambling on baseball to PED use. And do so in an effort…

  18. Is Barry Bonds really getting a “fair hearing?”

    Mar 11, 2014, 8:25 AM EDT

    Barry Bonds

    In the wake of yesterday’s Barry Bonds press conference, Ken Rosenthal talks about Bonds’ Hall of Fame case. Rosenthal opposes Bonds’ induction. He says this about those who do not: I hate when some in favor of Bonds’ and Clemens’ candidacies disdainfully describe voters like myself as “gatekeepers of morality.” Guilty as charged, I guess, but…

  19. Derek Jeter has marks to shoot for in final season

    Feb 12, 2014, 2:55 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter Getty

    Not that he ever seemed particularly motivated by personal milestones, but any dream of 4,000 hits and a run at Pete Rose died for Derek Jeter when he suffered a fractured ankle in the 2012 postseason. Never healthy in 2013, he played in just 17 games due to a quad injury and continued soreness in…

  20. What if corporate stadium names were outlawed?

    Power to the People

    The year is 2022. A socialist revolution has taken over the United States and most of the ruling, moneyed and elite classes have been put up against the wall in the name of justice. The only members — or fellow travelers — of the plutocratic class who are allowed to continue as they were are…

    Roger Clemens Red Sox

    In the interest of full disclosure before I jump into the meat of the subject and poke some fun at some Jeopardy! contestants, I consistently whiff on a good 99 percent of Jeopardy! clues. But when it’s Teen Jeopardy time, or if there’s a baseball category, I’m ready to risk it all on a Daily…

    Kay and I talk about everything that went down yesterday. And Pete Rose gets a shoutout too.

  23. Despite age, Raul Ibanez still drawing lots of interest

    Dec 8, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Raul Ibanez Getty

    The list of players who are able to justify a roster spot at the age of 40 is relatively short. The list of 40-year-olds to bash 29 home runs is remarkably shorter. Maybe that’s why free agent Raul Ibanez, now 41, is still drawing interest. He finished 2013 with 29 dingers and an adjusted OPS…

  24. 2013 leads the way in spectacularly bad offensive performances

    Sep 29, 2013, 6:01 PM EDT

    B.J. Upton

    By OPS, the 2013 season boasts three of the six worst offensive seasons since 2000: .545 – Cesar Izturis (2010 Orioles) .559 – Alcides Escobar (2013 Royals) .562 – Nick Punto (2007 Twins) .564 – Neifi Perez (2002 Royals) .565 – Adeiny Hechavarria (2013 Marlins) .569 – Darwin Barney (2013 Cubs) .576 – Ramon Santiago…
