Christian-  Have Joe fill out a CheckSwing profile.  He can include his background, stats and upload any video or photos. This can be his baseball resume. Good luck as he advances in his baseball career!

If anyone knows of a program looking for a  outfield guy that switch hits with a plus arm, plus range, plus speed, and has been clocked on the mound at 92....please send em our way...He has completed 2 years of junior college where he was used his freshman year as a pitcher and used in the field, on the mound, and as a runner this season. He currently plays for the Westchase Express Collegiate Summer team in Houston, Tx...

I disagree with the comment that infielders lack athleticism.The point of putting on a defensive shift is to make the hitter do something uncomfortable or unfamiliar to his normal approach. Hoping that the end result will be an out.

In response to all of the defensive shifts that MLB teams are now using, Harold Reynolds from MLB Network said that "MLB teams are playing college baseball in the big leagues taking away instincts from the players."  
He felt that the need for these shifts is because so many infielders in MLB today lack range and athleticism.

Do you agree?

Thanks guys. I don't know this person...only by first name via print. He called me out on a Scouts VS Player (Pitchers in particular) Development comment I made on my baseball blog. I'm assuming he must be a wannabe lawyer or wannabe something. Maybe he wants to help represent A-Rod. Did I just say that out loud? My bad.

Del, I could be wrong about today's baseball but in the past mlb was covered by an Anti-Trust Exemption which was in place so players and teams could not sue each other and all the rules were held within. Otherwise there would be lawsuits galore.
Comment by Bill Stanton on December 28, 2013 at 10:27am
Del- I see zero truth to that statement. Who said that?
When an MLB team comes up for sale, billionaires line up for the chance to buy it. Look at the Dodgers sale. Owning a professional sports team is the ultimate status symbol.
As far as the injury lawsuit goes, it hasn't happened yet to my knowledge. I think most players know that if you try a move like that you better win the lawsuit because you'll never play in MLB again.

How much truth is there to this? Caveat: I was remediated as to why 50% of MLB starting pitchers are injured in a season. Below is the real reason for 50% of the pitching injuries to starters according to one person." I don't everything, but I'm not sure if I'm buying it.

50% of MLB pitchers go on the DL every year these days because todays owners don't want to take a chance of being sued by one of these clowns who stub their toe, then are put on the 30 day DL. Doctors pay a ton of their salary for mal practice insurance, baseball owners don't want to have to do this and worse then that be sued for 200 million dollars because some pitcher wants to rip off an owner claiming his manager made him pitch when he was injured (and ruined his career)when he really wasn't. The justice system has become a sport like battle between two skillful lawyers and the one that impresses the judge the most wins. It's not a matter of who is right or wrong anymore. This is why most billionaires do not want to own a baseball team.
