Kyle Gibson: Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde

The phrase has become so popular that […]

2014 Rest of Season Top 150 Hitters

We’re a little past the half way mark in baseball so it’s time to take stock in what players have done in the first half and predict what they’ll do in the future.  Each Assembly member was asked to rank their top 150 hitters going forward.  We then took those rankings and consolidated them in […]
