    We are always curious about the music that players choose to have played as they are walking to the plate for an at bat. The songs are like tattoos. For some they have a special meaning, while for others it is just something they really like. We attended a Round […]

    ODDSMAKERS Trading David Price to the Cardinals for Albert Pujols? We understand the temptation. The Cardinals are in rebuilding mode and are pitching-thin.

    [Update] Nice pick-up by Steve…If you watch the ticker at the bottom of the screen, not only does it happen to be on the Rays-Rangers numbers, but they also give us the pitching line from David Price in his second professional start. In the 7th inning yesterday the Rays ballboy […]
