The MLB Draft Day 1 Broken Down

First Round Bryce Harper (Washington Nationals) – Boras Corp. – Interesting to note that Bud Selig referred to Harper as an outfielder even though he has played mostly catcher his entire life.  Get this kid on the fast track through the Minors.

The Re-Incarnation of Andruw Jones

It is completely evident to me now that baseball truly is the one sport that can suck great players up and spit them out just as easily. However, this time, the player that the league spat out isn’t exactly a superstar….anymore (or at least, didn’t look like one the past two years). Let me tell […]
