Talking Baseball

As you may know, I’m knee-deep in football for the magazine, so I thought I would take today to talk a little baseball. If you’re a fantasy baseball player, I’m sure you’ve been reading our fantasy baseball stuff this year and you’re familiar with new contributor Mike Gill. Mike, as you may know, hosts a show on the local ESPN Radio affiliate in my area, and he also was an accomplished baseball player in High School and college. But what you may not know is that he’s a son of a bitch.

See, Mike coaches in the Atlantic Shore Babe Ruth league, the same league my 14-year old son plays in.

  • Position Battle Playing Time for First Full Week of Preseason Action August 13, 2014
    We continue to update the position battles around the league, but in this blog, I thought looking at preseason playing time would be interesting. The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the first-team offense or the backups.
