Fireworks on the 4th of July.
They’re as American as baseball & apple pie.
And one of my favorite things about watching baseball, is the ever-present possibility of explosives.
Not the ones that fill the night sky after a win. The kind that...

No batting practice. No videos, No coaching. No nothing. White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen went old-school before Wednesday’s matinee against the awfulRoyals.

Jake Peavy wasn’t good enough. Ozzie Guillen was worse.
I don’t often write that paragraph. I think Guillen is a good manager who almost always handles a pitching staff well enough to put his team in position to win.

The Orioles so badly needed to avoid the sting of another close loss that it wouldn't have mattered who got the game-winning hit. But it was particularly satisfying for them to gather around home plate in the 10th inning Wednesday night, awaiting Nolan...
