Pace of Play, You’re Cramping My Style

Baseball is a beautiful game. There is a game of cat and mouse between batter and pitcher, strategies about when to bring in a reliever from the bullpen, and the strategy about when to pinch hit for a batter, and so on. You see some of the biggest superstars in the world play a game that takes you back to when you were a kid playing home run derby in your backyard. It’s a thing of beauty.

The Inside Pitch: History Repeating itself

Some people say that baseball just has too many stats.  However there are some stats that come up that are worth noting and looking into.  In this 2015 season, we should expect to see some milestones be reached before the year is over.  Although we are not in any danger of seeing an “all-time leader” record broken this year, the history books will have some adjustments and replacements.

Regardless if it was centerfield or right field, Ethier has always been a starter in that Dodger lineup.  In 2013 the Dodgers acquired Carl Crawford from Boston, and about three months into that season we saw the arrival …
