Entries may consist of gaudy performances, prolific flops, milestones, or important moments in player progression.

    My latest article is about the evolution of a quiet kid from Spokane to a man on a mission in the Cubs minor league system. I hope you enjoy reading it as much I did writing it.

    Hey Chris,

    Ryan Zimmerman’s hit streak halted at 30 games last night. As one streak ends, another is admired. Read about how Joe DiMaggio forever redefined ’56,’ and how his feat may never be broken. It is a record that thankfully cannot be broken through steroid use, and represents all that was once right in a game that has since gone so wrong.

    Thanks in advance!

    Walter Johnson was one of the greatest pitchers of all time and yet sometimes is not thought of when we talk about baseball in the past. I've decided to write about him and to show how great a pitcher he really was. Please check it out and leave a comment below. Thanks in advance.

    Hey Chris,

    Lou Gehrig has somehow been forgotten amongst the game’s immortals, even though he was possibly even more of a reason for the success of Ruth’s 1927 Yankees. Read about the quiet, forgotten leader of “Murderer’s Row,” Henry Lou Gehrig.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey Chris, After a little hiatus, I'm back, and writing about something different, this year's Kentucky Derby. Check out my comedic take on what happened.

    Great to have you as a fan, Chris. I'll have to check out your stat report. I am starting to get more into sabermetrics now, and am especially interested in anything that can demonstrate defensive value, something which is difficult to do (yes I am familiar with RF, Zone, etc) but is very underrated IMO.
