We’re guessing we’re not the only ones. What’s boxed up in your garage?

Larkin Elected to HOF

January 14th, 2012

Barry Larkin

Barry Larkin, the local Cincinnati kid who made it big on his hometown team, has just joined baseball’s most elite club by being elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Larkin’s deft glove work helped make him a 12-time All-Star, three-time Gold Glove Award winner and, of course, the 1995 NL MVP.

A class act all around, a fine addition to the HOF.

Putting away the mitt

January 8th, 2012

Posada

Jorge Posada is set to step away from baseball after a long and illustrious career as the catcher on some of the great Yankee championship teams.

He could surely find a home with another team for next season, as a DH if nothing else. But the catcher who has spent so many years behind the plate for the Yankees is calling it quits as a Yankee. There’s a certain poetic beauty to that.

Here’s wishing Posada the best as he hangs up the catcher’s mitt.

Do you believe in miracles?

When it comes to a better hitter or a better fielder in the key, up the middle positions, the guy with the better glove is invariably the better choice for the starting lineup.

They have the data to back it up.
