Rangers Land Darvish!

Yeah, it’s old news by now (hey! The site was down to protest SOPA/PIPA yesterday), but the Rangers reached an agreement with Yu Darvish. Look out, American League. The reigning champs just got a bit tougher. Which is good, since it’s not like the hated Angels have been quiet this offseason.

K Is For Kerouac

Jack Kerouac was one of my favorite authors for years. Technically, he still is. But at my age its hard to keep romanticizing a guy who had as many problem and as much baggage as Kerouac did. I don’t think I’ve actually read any Kerouac in a good 15 years, and that’s probably a shame […]

Vladdy Vlad Vlad!

Sure, it’s a puff piece, but hey! I love to read nice things about one of my all-time favorite baseball players. A revered figure and bona fide rags-to-riches story, the most feared presence in the Orioles’ lineup spends nearly every morning with a box of fan mail by his side. Guerrero signs everything: the shiny […]
