How is the part you highlighted a 'spin job'? I made a post CORRECTING someone's assertion that Pujols' defense was better than Bonds'. You call that 'saber metrics bologna' - I'd be very interested...

A-Rod goes 1-2 with a walk against the Philadelphia Phillies. Obviously we'll have to wait and see how he performs against a Major League team but this is promising, at least.

Peanuts never really made it over here, so most of these references mean nothing to me. Still, I found this article, and the comments, hilarious. (It was written by Patrick Dubuque, who also wrote a...

I'm all for the lack of sympathy for the Yankees but even they aren't quite that dumb. Rodriguez gets $6M if he gets to 660, then a further $6M for reaching milestones of 714, 755, 762 & 763. That's...

Joyce is far from terrible against RHP. For his career, he's .261/.356/.463 - that's a pretty useful platoon player. He's terrible against lefties though.
