Hey gang, hope you had a great labor day weekend filled with food, fun, the beach maybe and of course baseball. College football is now in session but don’t tell UM that. They’re wishing that LSU game didn’t count. Hurricane woes aside, in this episode I’ll go over the latest

Views From The Cheap Seats | Nationals and Yankees | August 23rd, 2018

Rumor has it the Marlins caused a stir at the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Something about several players being literally carried into the plane due to their unwillingness to leave because of their recent hitting streaks. Joking aside, the team must have wanted more games against the Nationals after

A bad losing streak, a 4-game sweep, two sudden injuries and a player suspended. Sounds like another day in paradise. We did witness another MLB hopeful live out their dream, so there’s that. Hold your nose. The Mets came to town with both teams eying the future. The offense remained in

Holy cow! Personally, I always found it generally difficult to sweep a team in professional sports. It ain’t easy in baseball, even at the collegiate level. When you’re the one busting out the brooms it’s a great feeling, but conversely it really hurts and can set a team back. For

Hey fellas, it’s that time of year again. The rumor mill furiously churns as teams look for that potential missing piece in the pursuit of their playoff hopes and championship dreams. For others, it's more getting the most bang for their buck. For the Marlins, its business as usual until

Tampa Bay Rays vs Miami Marlins | Citrus Series July 20-22, 2018

And we're back! Back on I-75 heading north, straight to Tropicana Field and ready for the start of the second half of the baseball season. The Rays kicked off part two of the season against their in-state rivals, Miami Marlins. After a surprisingly successful and rather unconventional first half, the Rays
