Todd Self

I recall seeing Todd Self -- who was just released by Trenton (Yankees AA) -- when he was at Salem (Houston High-A). He's a big first baseman with a very sweet swing, the sort of guy who could hit for some power but would need to develop that aspect of his game. I expected him to ascend with success...

Devilish

Let me play devil's proverbial advocate for a moment. I understand the sentiment that a 38-year-old with virtually zero chance of advancing in the baseball hierarchy is holding a job that could be held by a younger player with greater potential. But no one could be blamed for holding to the idyllic ...

Ahem

No disrespect to you - you state what ever you want; but you will never see a Canadian sit down for another Country's National Anthem - well American's will sit down or even boo at another Country's National Anthem. I've seen it at countless Stock Car races, and Hockey games! I will most certainly ...

Game Seven in OT...a good time was had by most.

A column I just submitted to Paul, but in case he doesn't get it uploaded soon -- he's a busy man, you know -- here's a sneak preview. ----------------------------- Game Seven. Winner goes on. Loser goes home. Add overtime, for good measure. Sweet recipe. That was fun. I just got back from seeing th...

IO'DaStormers

I disagree about Manassas. Manassas is contiguous with Woodbridge, and Woodbridge contains the Potomac Nationals, who draw from the D.C. southern suburbs. I really feel that a much better location, far enough away from any other franchise yet still within a populated, high per-capita income area, wo...

This is just not that big of a deal.

If it matters so bloody much that the Atlantic League keep the length of their bus rides to a minimum, that's solvable: Have an imbalanced schedule so that the Northern and Southern teams aren't travelling through the apparently dreaded NYC corridor very often, and don't schedule Bridgeport to have ...

Possible eight-run homers?

I'm far from a traditionalist, but I don't really fancy the idea of doubling the run total for the first home run in the seventh inning. That's highly arbitrary. Gimmicks have made arena football an attractive and interesting game to watch, but that's due primarily to the constraints of playing foot...

Atlantic League to Nothern Virginia?

The Atlantic League's admirable progress in placing franchises in Charles County (MD) and York (PA), combined with the established affiliated franchises in Woodbridge (VA), Bowie (MD) and Frederick (MD), almost completely rounds out the minor league coverage in the Washington metropolitan area. But ...
