This will be the last post on Baseball News Blog. Thanks to everyone who has visited the site over the last four years. It's been fun.
Mariners, World Champions that Weren’t. Derek Zumsteg: "'The Mariners had Junior, A-Rod, and Randy Johnson, and they didn’t win squat.' I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been told that about the Mariners. But I’ve never sat down and taken a serious look at that window, and considered what might have been, and how it could have got there." (U.S.S. Mariner)
About Schmidt. John J Perricone on Jason's loss of command since his groin injury last August. (Only Baseball Matters)
Chat: Paul Lukas. (The "Uni Watch" guy, not the "Watch on the Rhine" guy.)
Cris E (St Paul, MN): So where did all the color-coordinated shoes go?I'm with Lukas on this one. To anyone who says the Cardinals have the best uniforms in the majors, I say the red shoes automatically disqualify them.(Baseball Prospectus)
Fish gotta swim. "Vegas' dim stadium prospects notwithstanding, MLB seems eager to talk up Sin City as the destination-du-jour for the Marlins, and likely for any teams eager to scare their home towns into coughing up cash for new stadiums. This is the role that Tampa Bay filled for MLB in the 1980s and early '90s, when at least five different teams threatened to move to Florida's Gulf Coast (if you're scoring at home: the White Sox, Indians, Rangers, Mariners, Giants and probably a couple of others I've forgotten) as part of stadium-blackmail deals."
