Blogs

It was frustrating to watch. It didn't matter that I'm an Indians fan, always have been. Didn't matter that I was watching my team make a remarkable comeback. No, all I could think of was the state of baseball. Given a 9-2 lead against Indians starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco, Rangers ...

As I watch highlights of New York Yankees young right fielder Aaron Judge, I think about who he reminds me of. At 6'7" tall, Frank "Hondo" Howard comes to mind. Howard was such a feared slugger in his day that he was intentionally walked one time with the bases loaded. Howard had some ...
