Justin Merrlles - Nov 26, 2022

In the conversation about catchers and stolen bases, fans usually talk about their ability to throw runners out. Most of them are in their position for their defensive skills; they tend to be one of the slowest position players in the lineup. Although that is the trend, one catcher has become a significant outlier. Philadelphia Phillies catcher […]

Braves 2022 Postseason
Caleb Begley - Oct 25, 2022

The Atlanta Braves 2022 postseason did not go as intended. It did not flourish like so many flowing floral bouquets, nor did it pulverize opponents like silver screen legends of yore.

Home Run Leaders

The home run leaders since 2017 are surprising at best. Each player’s home run is enough for people to witness one of the most thrilling moments in a baseball game. The all-time home run record in a season is 73, held by Barry Bonds in 2001. But before Bonds, there was a home run chase […]

Darren Daulton
Caleb Begley - Sep 2, 2022

If one isn’t a consistent follower of the Philadelphia Phillies, then Darren Daulton probably isn’t thought of very much. Certainly, the beginning of the three-time All-Star’s career wasn’t anything to write. Year after year, knee injuries and inconsistent offense plagued the young catcher. Hence, his inclusion in our unlikely season series. For Darren Daulton, simply […]
