Best Division in Baseball

Contrary to popular belief, neither the the AL East, nor the NL East is the best league in baseball this season. That honor, at least statistically speaking, goes to the American League West, where the teams have combined for a .533 wining percentage (264-231). Fans of teams in those divisions, especially those in the I-95 …

What Am I Missing?

I love the Rangers, but hate to drive. Since I live in University Park, just north of downtown Dallas, this means I attend very few Rangers games at the Ballpark in Arlington, 25 miles away. To me, the reward (see my Texas Rangers play in person) is not worth headaches associated with driving (i.e. traffic, …

Saying Farewell to “The Kid”

Gary Carter

Like many kids who grew up during the 70′s and 80′s, I learned more about Major League Baseball from baseball cards than from ESPN, Sports Illustrated, or a website. I really became serious about card collecting the summer of 1987, at the age of 8. That summer, my best friend taught me his strategy for …

A Long Term Victory for the Rangers

The Real Baseball Club of Orange County (née the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim) have signed Albert Pujols to a reported 10 year, $260 million contract, complete with a no trade clause. Apparently, the Angels are tired of the Rangers winning the AL West as they are rumored to be the favorite to land Texas’ …

The Best Mother Effin’ Pre-Game Speech Ever!

So we didn’t win the World Series. Those bastards in St. Louis did, but I doubt their manager could give a speech like this. At least you can’t reduce him to “that’s the way baseball go” anymore…

Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen

Dirk Yawning

The calendar reads November 1, 2011, which means tonight I should be heading down to the American Airlines Center for opening night of Mavs basketball. While Opening Night in the NBA may not carry the same cachet as Opening Day in Major League Baseball, it’s still a special time on the sports calendar, so much …

Douche Bags Ruin Everything

Widespread

When I attended Lon Morris College, dorms bookended the campus, two at each end. On one end you Clark Hall and Brown Hall, which served as the dorms for the baseball and softball teams respectively. On the other end, you had Fair Hall, which housed the other male students, and Craven-Wilson, which housed all other …

Becoming a Real Baseball Fan

We are less than 30 minutes from first pitch of my first real Game 7 of the World Series. Sure, I’ve watched Game 7′s before, but none of have featured my team, the Texas (Baseball) Rangers. After last night’s wild ass ride, I’m surprisingly calm, but I doubt I’ll remain that way for long. In …

Flip Flop Fly Ball (The Most Hipster Friendly Baseball Site on the Internet)

The first thing I think of when I hear "Brian Wilson"? I think of the Barenaked Ladies song.....

If the Washington Post‘s Ezra Klein has taught us anything, it’s that hipsters love graphs and charts. I’ve always wanted to be a hipster, but I love baseball and websites. Imagine if someone had the creativity to make a website combining baseball and graphs & charts. I might actually have a chance of becoming a …

Baseball in Big D

The last time professional baseball was played in Dallas, it was here at Burnett Field in Oak Cliff. It's time pro ball--this time Major League Baseball--returns to Dallas.

As someone who has had the opportunity to attend baseball games in some of the most historic parks  (Wrigley, Fenway, and the old Yankee Stadium just to name a few), I’ve always dreamed of the day Dallas gets their own downtown park and the excitement that comes along with it. Imagine being able to sneak out …
