In Praise of Cliff Lee

Back in late July, when the Philadelphia Phillies traded for Cliff Lee, I gave the deal a tepid endorsement. On its surface, for what the Phillies gave up relative to what they got back, the deal was "not bad," I wrote. Lee was bound to help them fill out a...

Moment of Levity: The Big Picture

No, it's not a spa, it's a baseball game played at 94-degree heat. In California. Of course, that could mean that it's nearly identical to a sauna. Your call. Either way, if we were Daric Barton, we'd want our face in a cold towel, too.

Orioles Review and Preview: Athletics and Angels

After losing two of three at home against Oakland it certainly looks like the Orioles have stumbled their way into another patented late-summer freefall, something a visit from the AL West-leading Los Angeles Angels likely won't cure.

Moment of Levity: The Big Picture

There have been few more obvious Hall of Fame selections than all-time stolen bases leader Rickey Henderson. That, combined with Rickey's rather colorful and quotable-in-the-third-person past made his induction speech a virtual must-watch.
