"My inclination is that he will stick around another year or more to get 3000 hits, but it is possible that was his last game too.  He is not under contract for next year and I haven't heard anything about his plans."

"Play The Game The Right Way" (Jeter - Konerko)

With Derek Jeter and Paul Konerko retiring from MLB this week, you hear the phrase "he played the game the right way" quite a bit.I hear many coaches and players say "you need to play the game the right way." It gets thrown around A LOT.  It seems a bit cliche' at times and depending on who is saying it, hypocritical. It's such a broad statement to make since baseball has so many elements within the game.What does "play the game the right way" mean to you?…See More

I feel like I know many of you as you share your background in your CS profile and in our baseball discussions.  It's easy to see the personality of a person when they discuss the great game of baseball.

With that, I want…

Mike Schmidt: Today's hitters don't want much help



By MIKE SCHMIDT, For The Associated Press | August 7, 2014



I just returned from Hall of Fame induction weekend, where I find that my cronies and I are slowly becoming the older generation of the membership.



Most of us are in our 60s, having made our mark on the game in the late 1970s and '80s. Like any club or fraternity, the Hall's…
