Hartnett: Let’s Not Paint Bud Selig As The Savior Of Baseball

Hartnett: A-Rod Could Have Been King, Instead Leaves Behind Shattered Legacy

No one is shedding a tear for A-Rod. Whether he misses 150 games or two seasons, engages himself in a long, bitter legal fight or finds himself with a Pete Rose-like lifetime ban, it doesn’t matter. His reputation cannot be restored.

Keidel: We Shouldn’t Be Angry About A-Rod’s Money, But Rather His Lies

We aren’t angry at A-Rod because he makes the most money, but because he told the most lies. His montage of malfeasance is galling even by our subterranean standards.

Keidel: Have Any Dignity Left, A-Rod? Retire Today And Don’t Come Back

Alex Rodriguez is the best and worst of sports, with a hearty helping of the latter for the last decade. The conversation becomes gratuitous, redundant, ridiculous. But we must. Because he won’t let us leave him alone.

By The Numbers: Who Was More Dominant — Babe Ruth Or Ty Cobb?

Can we compare apples and oranges? Ty Cobb won 11 batting titles (BA) in 13 years while Babe Ruth copped 13 slugging (SLG) crowns in a 14-year stretch. Yet, I wonder, can we determine which of the two Hall of Famers was more dominant?
