  • 2011 Pre-Season Predictions [WMQ]

    Games start at 1300 today, so I’m still pre-season. This is also a much shorter prediction post than years past, but that’s what you’re getting. NL Playoffs: East: Braves Central: Reds West: Giants Wild Card: Dodgers I love Philadelphia’s rotation, but their offense has too many holes. No Utley, no RF, Ibañez is not great, […]

  • Roy Halladay No Hits the Reds! [WMQ]

    Roy “Doc” Halladay joins Don Larson as the second pitcher to ever throw a no-hitter in MLB postseason history. Halladay’s 104-pitch outing featured only one walk and eight strikeouts and a lot of intimidation. If you’re Cincinnati how the hell do you come back from this?

  • The 2010 Season in Review [Wednesday Morning Quarterback]

  • The 2010 MLB All-Star Game [Wednesday Morning Quarterback]

    It’s All-Star game time again! This year the game is being played in sunny Southern California, down in Anaheim. Thanks to the peculiarities of baseball scheduling and the east coast focus of television, the game is actually being started in daylight hours, 1700 PST. The liveblogging experience of the year is about to begin yet […]

  • Swept By the Mets: The Weekend’s Scores That Matter [WMQ]

    My friend Lee has somehow got his girlfriend into baseball, probably by pure force of will. This would be great, except she’s a Mets fan now and she loves to trash talk each time the Mets beat the Marlins. Thanks, Lee. 4 June NPB Softbank Hawks (4) at Hiroshima Carp (5). A huge fourth inning, […]

  • Jackie Robinson Day: Yesterday’s Scores That Matter [WMQ]

    Yesterday was the anniversary of the day that Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier and made his MLB debut. Per usual and in honor of the event, baseball had every player taking the field adopt Jackie Robinson’s uniform number for the day, 42. It makes for confusing baseball if you don’t recognize the faces of […]

  • In Which I Post a Higher Quality Version of the Same Shot: Yesterday’s Scores That Matter [WMQ]

    14 April NPB Yakult Swallows (3) at Hiroshima Carp (6). I’m not sure, but this might be the first series the Carp have won this year. Their record rises to 6-10-0, but they’re still sitting in last by about half a game. Rakuten Eagles (5) at Seibu Lions (6). 7-12-0 keeps the Eagles in fifth […]

  • Behind on Posts: Yesterday’s Scores That Matter [WMQ]

    I’ve been watching tons of baseball and going to a lot of games, which is great for my sports posts, but kind of terrible for blog updates. I’ll try and get some writing done this week, but until I do, here are the scores. 12 April NPB Off-day MLB Washington Nationals (4) at Philadelphia Phillies […]

  • MLB 2010 Season Projections [Wednesday Morning Quarterback]

    Another year, another season! 2010 looks to be another good one. The Marlins don’t look like they’re about to run away with their division, but the Rays have a fighting chance this year. I’m getting ahead of myself, so let’s back up and go through this division by division like we do every year. AL […]

  • Hall of Fame [Wednesday Morning Quarterback]

    It’s time for Wednesday Morning Quarterback, your weekly sports round-up. This year’s hall of fame class included Joe Gordon, Ricky Henderson, and Jim Rice, a fairly solid class inducted without much controversy. It seems like the controversy will only increase as the years continue to go by. Already the HoF voters seem to be softbanning […]
