He's going back to a simpler place and time...

He kept dreaming
That some day he'd be a star
A superstar
. . .
But now he's leaving . . .

Justin Upton is going to Georgia.

You read that correctly.  The Arizona Diamondbacks have traded this guy:

A Perfect Match...

Delmon Young is in the news this week, after signing a one-year contract with the Phillies.

Making it to the Show

I was happy to see the Durham Bulls clinch the IL South, but on the very next day, this happened:

The best part about making the show?

Who is the Lebron James of Baseball?

Jimmy says that it is Bryce Harper...

But I would probably say it is

Thank you Nate or Kim!

One of the more interesting Christmas presents I received was a gift card to Lids, my favorite store at which I purchase hats.  What is peculiar about this gift is who gave it to me.  To wit:

Do you know what baseball team Superman likes best?     . . . I do!

Kenesaw Mountain Landis on the 2013 Hall of Fame vote:

Happy Hall of Fame Announcement Day!

The results of this year's Hall of Fame voting will be announced later today.  I suppose I could fill this space by discussing who would get a vote on my fictitious ballot.  But, honestly, did you really come here to read an inane post about steroids and Alan Trammell statistics?

Last week for @MLBFanCave WBC applications

Since I don't get the MLB Network, my only exposure to the MLB Fan Cave is snippets of video I see online and the emails I get from MLB.com which advertise hipster bands who perform there.  Anyway, the MLB Fan Cave is returning for the 2013 World Baseball Classic:

Do with that information what you will.

Do you miss baseball? Here's a full game!

It is early January, but the Australian Baseball League is going strong.  In fact, they stream video of their games live online.  If my time calculations are correct, tomorrow's late morning game in Australia happens today this evening in the States.

The following game between the Adelaide Bite and the Perth Heat happened just two weeks ago today.  Enjoy:
