I am talking about Prince Fielder. The big man has put forth some remarkably loud numbers in a seemingly quiet fashion so far in 2015. Fielder has placed himself among the MLB’s top hitters this year, but...

Bear or Bull: For Whom the Beltre Tolls

Congratulations are in order for Adrian Beltre. Last week, he became the newest member of the 400 home run club and only the 52nd player in MLB history to accomplish that impressive feat.

The Texas Rangers are desperate for bullpen help

The offense is heating up and starting pitching has been good, but there is one area the Rangers remain helpless. The Rangers bullpen is among the Major League’s worst.
