The Season that Was: J.A. Happ

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Oct 23, 2014, 4:16 pm EDT

A look at J.A. Happ's 2014 season. I'll admit that, after the 2013 season, J.A. Happ was high on my list of lest favorite pitchers. It wasn't really fair, he missed a good part of the season, after the line drive drive to the head and knee injury that came...

Melky Cabrera finishes 5th in AL Comeback Player of the Year voting

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Oct 20, 2014, 8:13 pm EDT

I thought Melky Cabrera had a shot at the Sporting News AL Comeback Player of the Year award. He came back from a terrible 2013 season, where he hit .279/.322/.360 in 88 games, and played the outfield like he was Tim Conway doing one of his old man bits. This year he...

The Season that Was: Melky Cabrera

Details By Tom Dakers

Published: Oct 15, 2014, 10:43 am EDT

Melky's 2013 was just terrible. He couldn't hit with any power, couldn't run, his defense was awful. He looked like an old man out there.. It did seem strange, his speed was one of the things people liked about him. Grant Brisbee told us: He runs the bases like he's trying...
