Trade Package To Be Named Later

With all the crazy MLB trade activity going on in July and August, you hear about that infamous Player to be Named Later thing. It’s a very common tactic among clubs to say that they’ll test drive the main attraction for a month or two and then decide how much he’s actually worth.

2017 NSCC #7 – Needles In A Haystack

The 2018 National is starting today and I will not be attending. Maybe I’ll go to Cleveland in a future year, but not this time. Further east seems like less of an option. I could drive to Ohio, but I don’t want to pay for a flight to go farther than that. The good news […]

Good to be Back

Once again, I’ve been away from the blog for a prolonged period of time. My hope is that this actually the last time. I know I’ve said that before, but I now have a new position at my company that is not supposed to require any nights and weekends. Technically the old job didn’t either, […]
