  • Amateur Draft Analysis – Rounds 2-5

    2. Duke Welker, RHP, Arkansas - Welker is a 6-7, 220 pound righthander with more projection left than the average college pitcher. Welker sits in the low 90's with his fastball, which has some late life to it. Welker's secondary pitches are not considered especially strong. His best is a slider that...

  • Game #62 at New York

    Yankee Stadium | 1:05 | Maholm vs. Roger Clemens | Box I've seen awful baseball games before. I played from the time I was five up through high school. Booted balls aren't a new concept to me. Even professionals make errors, and I understand that. Today, though, was a different story. This...

  • Game #61 at New York

    Yankee Stadium | 7:05 | Gorzelanny vs. Andy Pettitte | Box I suppose there were a few big plays in this game that I could focus on---Xavier Nady's second inning homer, Chris Duffy's inside-the-parker, Derek Jeter's walk-off dribbler---but I'll zero in on the events of the seventh inning. The Pirates were up,...

  • First Round Analysis – Daniel Moskos, LHP, Clemson

    Round 1 (#4 overall) - Daniel Moskos, LHP, Clemson Analysis: Moskos, a lefty, possess a fastball that can hit the mid-90's as well as a hard-biting slider.

  • Game #60 at Washington

    RFK Stadium | 1:05 p.m. | Snell vs. Matt Chico | Box There's a good chance that this one flew under the radar a bit. No offense to Ian Snell, Jason Bay or the rest of the Pirates, but I'm sure most of us were more interested---and disgusted---by the Rule 4 draft...
