A YouTube scouting report of new Detroit Tigers pitcher Shane Greene, who might be a demon

The Tigers traded their No. 5 and No. 7 prospects for Shane Greene. You’re reaction was probably similar to mine: Who? Bless You Boys actually has a post titled: Who is Shane Greene? You can go there to get stats. For a review of how he plays, go find a number of other people who have A.) Seen […]

Your much more frequent Jose Alvarez/Chris Bootcheck update

There’s too much news to return to our once-every-two-weeks James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (sponsor pending) winners of past and present update. (I feel like that needs to be shortened.)
