Dallas Braden is brilliant and underutilized and appreciated!
CATCHERS: Feel free to let the home plate umpire know what your pitcher throws. During warm ups when the ump is taking pitches from the starter, have your pitcher execute his off speed. Give the umpire a feel for what it looks like. Let him know what to look for with 2 strikes. https://t.co/nWxVlFF695
If you saw this you should follow me. This is not going well and a win in Chicago is imperative. No excuses.

Grant and I are doing a podcast/YouTube Cohn Zohn and I'm thinking about topics after the Super Bowl. Giants, A's, Warriors sort of, although Kerr deserves discussion. But I'm also thinking boxing. Not boxing now. When boxing mattered. I really know that stuff and Grant does too
A pretty special connection between #Athletics and my alma mater, and that's great to see. ... Nice read here too from Alex, check it out! #GoBears
No, I think all perceived cheaters will get lumped together, to the detriment of those trying to get in the Hall. People are sensitive right now to baseball being a dirty sport, just in general.
As all-time standard-bearers, Bonds and Clemens take a greater share of the accountability burden, much like Rose. A majority of writers do favor their inclusion, but getting 75 percent in favor of anything ... well, just take a look at Capitol Hill.
@stewardsfolly I always love that argument from writers saying they won’t vote for a steroid user, but Pudge, Bagwell, Piazza are already in and were suspected of taking steroids. Bonds and Clemens were the best of the best and it would be a real shame if they don’t get elected.
