Hermida settling in with new team and working on consistency

After being selected as a No. 1 draft pick (11th overall) in the 2002 Major League Baseball Draft by the Florida Marlins, outfielderJeremy Hermida was one of the most highly-touted prospects in the sport. He made his major league debut on August 31, 2005 with the Marlins in a game against the St. Louis Cardinals. In his first major league at-bat, Hermida belted a grand slam off...

Random Athlete of the Day- Ray King

Ray King, who not coincidentally has the same last name as the man we are celebrating today, is a former relief pitcher who pitched for six different teams from 1999 to 2008.  He pitched in 577 games, and had a 20-23 record, a 3.42 ERA and 276 strikeouts.

The three-day fan event is held each January over Martin Luther King weekend, this time from Saturday, January 19 through Monday, January 21.

Guess Brew? Don’t Mind If We Brew… Er, Do!!!

Unlikely.Getting through baseball's long, unforgiving offseason is a difficult task. While each season draws to its conclusion, the days also get shorter and the temperatures dip.

In Which the NFL Falls Down a Wormhole

In addition, the shirts they’re selling apparently don’t carry the Majestic logo. Brinke spotted that yesterday afternoon. It’s even more interesting in light of something reader Chaz Noerenberg had pointed out to me earlier...

The Atlanta Braves Singing Christmas Card Will Make You Hate Christmas

The Atlanta Braves decided to wish seasons greeting to their tomahawking fans. Since they can’t send a card to every Braves fan, they did one better, they talked/sang “Jingle Bells.” This may set the franchise back farther than when they traded Adam Wainwright, Ray King and Jason Marquis to St. Louis for J.D Drew and Eli Marrero.
