The Adam Jones Dilemma

Smith Brickner | January 20th, 2019

On February 8th, 2008, the Seattle Mariners pulled the trigger on a deal with the Baltimore Orioles to acquire Erik Bedard, a southpaw who finished 5th in the 2007 Cy Young voting. By all accounts, it was a good move for a Mariners franchise which was looking to end a long playoff drought. The price Seattle paid – pitching prospects Kam Mickolio and Chris Tillman, along with reliever George Sherrill and a young Adam Jones – seemed reasonable. That was 11 years ago. That trade is now considered one of the best in Orioles history, vice-versa for the Mariners.

Will this be the year that the voters decide to let steroid users in, thus inducting Bonds? Continue reading

HOF Case – Sammy Sosa

Joe Reeks | January 19, 2019

Sammy Sosa wasn’t just an all-time great right-handed slugger, he was an icon. People who didn’t watch the game or know anything about baseball knew who Sosa was. From his traditional pregame sprint out to right field, to his home run hop, and post home run dugout signals to his mother, he became a household name. But time is running out for Sosa and his chances to enter Baseball’s Hall of Fame. This marks his 7th time on the ballot and if he doesn’t see a huge increase in votes soon, he will most likely not be a Hall of Famer.

John Lepore | January 17th, 2019

The Major League Baseball Hall of Fame ballot is currently stacked with many deserving candidates. While the voters are limited to ten, there will be players falling off the ballot, unfortunately. Lance Berkman may be one of them after only a year.
