Pitcher Profile: Ross (Maybe?) Can

"What's it short for?  Ya know, like Rosstopher?"  "Just Ross!" I had cautious optimism heading into the year for Tyson Ross, and he looked pretty wild early on.  And not the good kind of wild.  No one in San Diego is wearing Wild Thing-Ross T-Shirts.  I caught most of his debut against the Dodgers, and he didn't look right.  Hitchy delivery, lower...

Cody Decker Presents: “On Jeff Ears”

Most of us who have played some kind of sport are familiar with hazing new teammates. It’s typically a one-shot gig: telling them the new guy has to fill the water cooler, or saying that new players have to rake the infield, or even pretending that tomorrow’s game has been moved to some other day. It’s a harmless, albeit really fun, quick gag. But have you ever played a joke...
