No, I do not mean the musician Carlos Santana, who is awesome, by the way. I mean Carlos Santana the Major League Baseball player, who was awesome for most of his career. Santana has scuffled a bit the past couple of years, although he’s still a serviceable ball player. The Pittsburgh Pirates seem to be […]
The Mexican relief pitcher Alfredo Aceves has a few interesting distinctions to his career. First of all, he played for only two teams in his Major League Baseball career, each bitter rivals, the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees. Aceves was remarkably brilliant for several seasons, even being credited with 10 wins to his […]
Back in the days of Windows 95, PC baseball video games were just starting to come into their own as something more than a simple spin-off of the console versions. As a kid, I wasn’t even that avid of a baseball fan, and I never did well with the Nintendo and Sega Genesis console baseball […]

Andy Abad never had any success in Major League Baseball, but unlike many who toil in the professional minor leagues for many seasons, he did make it to the show, not once, not twice, but three times. The long time minor leaguer was a pretty good hitter who probably never got a fair shake based […]
Don Aase is best known to Red Sox fans as the guy the Boston Red Sox traded for second baseman Jerry Remy. Technically, this trade netted the Red Sox negative WAR, as Aase would go on to be a shutdown relief pitcher for a few years; Remy, while being a positive himself, suffered many injuries […]
On January 28, 2008, the Boston Red Sox traded Willy Mota and Miguel Socolovich to the Chicago White Sox for relief pitcher David Aardsma. The Red Sox wouldn’t miss either of those guys, especially Mota who never made the Majors. Socolovich would have a few appearances in the majors, but never have much of an […]
Billy Brewer was a pretty good Rule 5 draft pick by the Kansas City Royals, a solid left-handed pitcher who would throw three seasons out of the Royals bullpen.
