Boras on Kyler Murray: We negotiated a baseball contract provision allowing him to play COLLEGE football for 1 year...He is grateful & will honor agreement w/A’s & wants to be great MLB player. While every player would like to do both he understands why he’s focusing on baseball.
Twitter followers have answered my rhetorical question. So far two examples of 1980s teams with more than three Hall of Fame players: 1982 Brewers: Yount, Molitor, Sutton, Fingers 1983 Phillies: Schmidt, Morgan, Carlton, Tony Perez
Do the1984-86 White Sox now have more Hall of Famers (Baines, Fisk, Seaver) than any other team of the era? Thinking of the great Cardinals, Mets, Red Sox, Royals and Tigers teams of the 1980s and I'm thinking the answer is "yes."
When Harold Reynolds says to Matt Klentak, "I'm surprised the defense struggled," it's really embarrassing. The Phillies' defense was first-, second-, and third-guessed all year long, from at least the moment they deranged their alignment by signing Santana.
Results of the Today’s Game Era Ballot (12 votes needed for election): Lee Smith (16 votes, 100%); Harold Baines (12 votes, 75 percent); Lou Piniella (11 votes, 68.8%); Albert Belle, Joe Carter, Will Clark, Orel Hershiser, Davey Johnson, Charlie Manuel and George Steinbrenner < 5
For the love of god can we get Dick Allen into the Hall of Fame? Because with Smith and Baines in there now, his omission is embarrassing.
RT @maria_torres3: Tribute to Luis Valbuena from Alexis Rivero, a longtime Phillies MILBer who tried to keep Valbuena on the team bus: “You sat me down on your birthday & said...Every time you put on your uniform they’re giving you a chance to feed your family. Don’t fret. God’s time is perfect.” https://t.co/rU6lGjuYhU
