Former high-priced signing Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez was reportedly killed in a car accident in Havana, Cuba which was just confirmed by the Phillies. Gonzalez was just 34. He is the second former Phillie pitcher to die in an accident in less than a month. Roy Halladay was killed when his private plane crashed into the […]
I’m crushed. Roy Halladay has always been a favorite of mine. Quiet, but always seemingly approachable. Once he was retired he lived in the Clearwater area and it wasn’t unheard of someone saying they’d seen him around town. Last time I saw him in person was at the end of the season this year. He […]
Baseball Ross likes to say that he loves baseball because every game you watch, you see something you’ve never seen before.

I was there that day. […]
MLB reports that the Atlanta Braves have signed former Phillies’ 1B Ryan Howard to a contract! The report states that Howard will report to Braves’ extended spring training in Kissamee then to AAA Gwinnett in Georgia. Guess those $80k in doorknobs won’t pay for themselves! If you want to see the nicest house of any […]
