TweetOn the new Showtime series, “The Franchise”, the show chronicles the San Francisco Giants’ season. The show has its fair share of silly moments, as expected with the likes of Brian Wilson’s “GOT HEEM!” phenomena and such. The latest silliness involves first baseman Aubrey Huff showing off his dancing abilities… if you could call them […]

TweetAt last night’s All-Star Game, it was a bit of a snoozer. Not a great game, not a bad one. But a highlight of the night came when the attention shifted poolside for a tipsy-drunk Justin Timberlake interview. He expressed his appreciation for beer, which FOX promptly covered up with a large overlay advertisement in […]

Like It or Not, The MLB All-Star Game is Fun http://ballhyped.com/2011/07/12/like-it-or-not-the-mlb-all-star-game-is-fun/ Tue, 12 Jul 2011 13:59:15 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/07/12/like-it-or-not-the-mlb-all-star-game-is-fun/

TweetMajor League Baseball’s All-Star game, unlike those in the other major sports, actually counts. Well, sort of. It can end in a tie and there are enough pitching changes and offensive and defensive substitutions to make your head spin, but something is affected by the outcome of the game.

TweetThere are a lot of great things about Minor League Baseball – the affordability, the family-friendly atmosphere, the intimacy of being so close to the action of the game. But for me, the highlight of attending MiLB games is the excitement of later hearing that the prospects you saw develop in your own backyard have […]

TweetAs we approach the second half of the 2011 season, it may be time to start looking at potential key moves to make a second half push toward your fantasy baseball league title. When considering the position of first base, there is no lack of players who are underachieving, overachieving, sleeper picks or possible ‘buy […]

TweetThere isn’t much value to winning an imaginary MVP award from a baseball blog, but some recognition is deserved for some of baseball’s best players this season. Whether it’s Adrian Gonzalez continued domination or Jose Reyes rebound season, 2011 has been an entertaining season from the most successful players to those who have underwhelmed (yes, […]

TweetAnd here we are with Jeter, only a handful of hits away at the time of this article’s publishing (2,994 career hits). How good has Jeter been in his career? Well, the Hall of Fame will surely be in his future, but can he hold his own among the game’s legends?

Baseball’s Cy Young Winners of the Mid-Season http://ballhyped.com/2011/07/01/baseball%e2%80%99s-cy-young-winners-of-the-mid-season/ Fri, 01 Jul 2011 18:35:45 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2011/07/01/baseball%e2%80%99s-cy-young-winners-of-the-mid-season/

TweetCy Young voting has always confused me and really, I don’t think closers deserve to win. That is to say, they should have their own award. It isn’t meant as a slight. It’s just that comparing starting pitchers to relievers just isn’t fair. They are three very different skills and aren’t interchangeable in the game […]
