Strasburg-Use him up or Save him for NLDS/World Series Mentality

Posted on August 31, 2012 at 8:28am 0 Comments

First let me state that I'm not a GM, MD, or athletic trainer.  I believe I'm a common sense kinda guy.  With the resiliency of the young phenom and a 5-6 lead in their division why are the Nats using up Strasburg when he could obviously help them in  pivotal games later.  Is there nobody that could take his place in the rotation to get through the regular season?  Would it even be a consideration with 30 or so games remaining?  Why or why not?

The "FUN" Factor in Youth Baseball Misunderstood

Posted on July 4, 2012 at 10:38am 4 Comments

At what level, recreational, legion, travel,, elite, 8 year old to 18 year olds does the much talked about "FUN" aspect of baseball become less about "Fun" and more about serious training, serious development and serious competition?  Should the "Fun" factor be less of a priority with older age groups as well as younger elite travel baseball levels?

Is Elbow Soreness Normal After Hard Throwing Sessions

Posted on January 27, 2012 at 6:09pm 20 Comments

Some youth players 14U up to 18U have frequent elbow soreness after throwing sessions.  Is this similar to muscle  soreness after lifting weights. Should there always be concern of an injury or medial epicondolytis.  The soreness usually subsides after an hour or two.  Is is important enough for a visit to the doctor?

Theo Epstein to Cubs

Posted on October 12, 2011 at 5:31pm 0 Comments

It's great to see a guy who didn't play baseball past little league  become GM of the Red Sox baseball dynasty winning 2 World Series, 2 league championships and 2 division championships.  And now he's with a not so successful dynasty.  I think I speak for many when I say CUBS fans  welcome him to Chicago.
