Nice gesture by #sfgiants. Award for best first-year player in camp to carry the name of late trainer Barney Nugent. Duffy a favorite.— Henry Schulman (@hankschulman) March 30, 2015
I didn't know he was eligible. I DIDN'T KNOW HE WAS ELIGIBLE, DAMMIT.
Bruce Bochy Won’t Let Success Go to His Head
The New York Times Magazine conducted a short interview with Bruce Bochy, and as you might expect from both the title of the article and your own knowledge of him, there's a lot of head talk. Oh, maybe you haven't heard about Bruce Bochy's head, as it is a topic that is rarely raised. Bruce Bochy's head is larger than most people's heads, and it is therefore a subject of discussion and humor. I hope this helps to clear a few things up, and please enjoy your day.
Daily fantasy sports Web sites find riches in Internet gaming law loophole
So you know how baseball has some "rules" about not gambling on baseball? One other thing that baseball has is a financial interest in fantasy sites that are basically just ways to gamble on baseball. You might think that this makes MLB look hypocritical, but as long as the players don't use the product that the league endorses, there's no competitive advantage to anyone, and everything is fair and not bullshit. Close call!
Charlie Williams and the price for fame
So you know how the Giants had one of the best players of all time, and then they traded him away for someone who wasn't that good? Settle down, Jeremy Accardo fans, this one's not for you. No, this is about Charlie Williams, the player the Mets sent over in the Willie Mays trade in 1972, and the kind of player and person he was. And for those of you dying to read some quotes from Gary Lavelle, and I know that's most of you, this article's got 'em in spades! Gosh, you sure are lucky.
Intangibles major reason for Posey's success
It does not surprise me that Buster Posey is good at intangibles, what with his being the light and the truth and everything, but something else that he does well is the tangibles. I know, I know, it's a bit of a surprise that Buster Posey is good at measurable baseball things, but if you look closely at the stats, he's actually really good. So while the intangibles are certainly useful in helping a team win, don't forget what Buster Posey does on the field. It turns out, he's pretty dang impressive!
A Baseball Story
Joe Posnanski is a really good writer and it's just damn unfair.
