    Morris made 14 opening day starts. 3 of those teams won the World Series. It isn't rocket science, it's baseball where you send your best pitcher out on opening day. The best pitcher 14 years for...

    I heard that on Jack Michaels show today. Some here still care about a good story and small time athletics where kids play because they want to not because they are entitled and groomed for the bigs.

    I was hoping that Chris got the job a couple years ago. Cory is good but I still like Chris better.
    Dan is irritating at times and shouldn't do play by play.

    I am fairly sure that Mauer's increase in throwing runners out has to do with the health of his legs. Last year he just couldn't get up quick enough so he rushed a lot of throws, ie throwing before...

    One thing nobody has mentioned, at least Spielman is trying to put some high end talent on the roster before AP gets old. The reality is AP probally has only 2 more elite years and a couple of years...

    You also have to take the pitcher into account. I could catch Greg Maddux and get a lot of borderline calls but Swarzak isn't going to get near the calls regardless of who is behind the plate.

    The interesting thing for those who look is that AP averages almost a yard a carry more when Percy is not on the field than when he is. Not sure if it is because Percy doesn't block as well or if the...

    I don't see any way that Percy reports to camp next year if they don't move him. That turns it into a media circus and increases the chances of him having a off year. I agree that Alex Smith will be...
