DH In National League May Lead to Other Changes

Posted on February 4, 2016 at 5:57pm 0 Comments

The designated hitter was instituted in the American League in 1973. The rule, that lets a position player hit in place of the pitcher, was the brainchild of notorious Chicago White Sox owner Bill Veeck.*

If the Designated Hitter comes to the National League in 2017, I predict position players will be allowed to re-enter games by 2020. If those things become reality, the active roster limit should remain at 25 players to keep some strategy in the game.

Pete Rose: His Un-American Actions are Costing Him a Second Chance

Posted on January 17, 2016 at 9:30pm 0 Comments

Pete Rose has been banned from Major League Baseball for more than 25 years now. I think there is one very simple reason why the all-time hits leader {4,256 for his career} hasn't been let back into the game. America is known as the "land of second chances," and, if Rose had come clean to Bart Giamatti – admitting that he committed the number one sports sin by betting on his sport – he would've ended up serving something like a 10 year ban.

So it turns out that something that we are…

Unfair Equity: Rockies Fans Deserve More From Ownership

Posted on December 27, 2015 at 12:00am 0 Comments

Rockies fans deserve more than what they've received from ownership for 22 seasons of loyal attendance in Denver. Colorado has had some magic baseball moments[1995 and 2007] in the last two decades, but, over the long haul, Rockies pitching has been substandard for MLB competition.

By now, it is well known that the Brothers Monfort and Jerry McMorris, were not the original ownership group that was going to lead the Rockies. The Rockies were going to be owned by a group led by…

Notes from the purple pessimist – one win does not a season make

Posted on April 6, 2015 at 7:43pm 0 Comments

The Rockies beat Milwaukee 10-0 today, and I could care less!

Tomorrow night, it'll probably be tied 1-1 in the ninth with Ryan Braun laying down a suicide squeeze bunt – Rockies will lose 2-1, LOL.

The Rockies don't have any depth in their pitching rotation to begin with, and certainly can't withstand a big injury adding to the ones that already exist in the pitching staff. The Rockies will win 70 games, and only 70, in 2015.

Rockies Business Model

Posted on August 20, 2010 at 10:48pm 0 Comments

I say the Rockies will be lucky to win big under their current model. They don't buy any big stars, so their bench and pitching will always be thin. Star power--even just a little--equals rings.
