TweetStephen Strasburg is a magician. There is no other way to describe him. The level of hype and excitement that surrounded his arrival and that now surrounds his return is akin to a David Copperfield special, or what it must have been like when Harry Houdini was coming to your town. The level of hype […]

Can the Diamondbacks win the NL West http://ballhyped.com/2011/08/08/can-the-diamondbacks-win-the-nl-west/ Mon, 08 Aug 2011 13:49:55 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/08/08/can-the-diamondbacks-win-the-nl-west/

TweetDespite the fact that no one has paid much attention to them the one team that has a chance to be a surprise arrival once playoff time comes around are the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Diamondbacks are currently 62-52 and just a half game back in the NL West. The recent poor play of the Giants […]

Washington Nationals: First Half ends in Depressing Fashion http://ballhyped.com/2011/06/30/washington-nationals-first-half-ends-in-depressing-fashion/ Thu, 30 Jun 2011 13:15:13 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/06/30/washington-nationals-first-half-ends-in-depressing-fashion/

TweetJordan Zimmermann deserved better yesterday, but that is going to happen when a pitcher is as good as him. He has pitched like an Ace this year. He is in the top 30 in MLB in multiple pitching categories, including 9th in WAR at 2.8, 9th in ERA at 2.63, 9th in FIP at 2.71, […]

Hungover with Happiness (or Why I am a Baseball Fan) http://ballhyped.com/2011/06/22/hungover-with-happiness-or-why-i-am-a-baseball-fan/ Wed, 22 Jun 2011 13:35:09 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/06/22/hungover-with-happiness-or-why-i-am-a-baseball-fan/

TweetI still don’t have words. There is no way I can rightly describe the emotions of witnessing a walk-off homerun like the one Wilson Ramos hit for the Nats last night. I have been in the stands for five of Zimmerman’s walk-off homers and I would say most of those created better moments than the […]

Umpiring in Baseball Continues to Reach New Lows http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/20/umpiring-in-baseball-continues-to-reach-new-lows/ Fri, 20 May 2011 13:39:05 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/20/umpiring-in-baseball-continues-to-reach-new-lows/

TweetJoe West, Phil Cuzzi, C.B. Bucknor, Angel Hernandez, and Bob Davidson are all major league umpires, and all of them have a history of controversial and bad calls. Their names are known to baseball fans and not for any good reason. Going to a baseball game and seeing one of those names as an umpire […]

Drew Storen and the Modern Day Closer http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/02/drew-storen-and-the-modern-day-closer/ Mon, 02 May 2011 15:38:26 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/05/02/drew-storen-and-the-modern-day-closer/

TweetDrew Storen has everything it takes to be a closer. He was drafted to be a closer, signed to be a closer, has the 97 mph fastball flat-brimmed cap and icy gaze of a closer, but he isn’t the closer. The Washington Nationals haven’t officially named Burnett or Storen the closer, and they shouldn’t. Not […]

TweetThere are players out there that baseball fans can’t help but get pleasure from watching, and there are players on hated teams that earn a baseball fan’s respect and admiration. Carlos Beltran used to be one of those players, and watching him in right field last night reminded me of what it used to be […]

TweetBrief praise of Danny Espinosa as a reason to go out to the Ballpark, and a few memories of when watching Ryan Zimmerman felt the same way. Included are thoughts on Espinosa's future and what it would mean if he develops into a Dan Uggla type bat with his good defense.
