Aloha fine readers. This has been a weird week of baseball. Some of the teams are starting to play better (Blue Jays and Angels) and some teams seem to be dropping off hot starts (New York Yankees and Texas Rangers).
Overall, with the exception of a few things (both LA clubs struggling, plus Washington having some struggles, things have gone pretty much to where I thought they would play out.
I wanted to announce that I won’t be doing the Daily Home Run hitters notes anymore. There are just too many specific pages out there that you can follow the same type of information. Google search the concept.
I enjoyed writing the segments, because who doesn’t love the longball? It is just we like to separate ourselves from other websites with stuff that is new.
We will try many new things over the course of this website’s life. That is the only way to do the fans justice. Read the rest of this entry
World Series Rings, ugly Patriotic uniforms and the very origin of Massachusetts and New York baseball tensions are the topics.

It was a light day in baseball on May 23rd. But that won’t stop me from awarding the title of Who Owns Baseball for the day.
Four players increased their WOB by one.
Miguel Cabrera got on base four times including 2 hits, one of them being a 2 run homer. He scored in the game tying 7th inning rally and helped set up Prince Fielder‘s game winning hit in the 8th inning as the Tigers beat Minnesota 7-6.
Scott Barnes pitched three shutout innings in relief for his first career save and gave the Indians bullpen a respite as the Tribe beat the Red Sox 12-3 in Boston.
Andrew McCutchen went 3-4 with a pair of runs batted in and made a great catch as the Pirates beat the Cubs, 4-2.
With the Pirates and Cubs playing the only National League game and a rain delay preventing either starter from going long, the WOB honor goes to Pittsburgh closer Jason Grilli. He threw a perfect 9th inning and for his 19th save in 19 tries, lowering his ERA to a microscopic 1.25 as the Pirates swept the Cubs.
They all owned baseball on May 23rd, 2013.

At the end of the year, we will tally up who owned baseball the most individual days and see how it compares to the final MVP and Cy Young vote.
