MLB Bullets Just Hit The Jackpot

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Miguel Cabrera signed a massive contract extension. Two new rules in baseball are ready to go. There's more handwringing over Yasiel Puig. The Royals may go all the way this season and the best high school knuckleball pitcher in the country is 5'2" and a girl.

In contract negotiations with the Angels, Mike Trout asked for all of Orange County. The Angels countered by just offering him all of Anaheim, including Disneyland.

I'm willing to give Al the hometown discount and sign for only half of what Cabrera got.


  • Wendy Thurm looks at the broadcasting situations for the Padres, Dodgers and Astros and the issues getting their games to the fans. The Padres have finally solved their issues, although it only took two seasons.
  • Maybe this is important and maybe it isn't. But in light of the Astros inability to get CSN Houston carried by most television content providers, they're hinting that they may ask MLB to lift the blackout of the broadcast of their games on Extra Innings and MLB.tv. The Astros are in a weird situation, but maybe this is the first step to ending the blackouts. Or maybe it isn't.
  • Recently unearthed footage shows Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and the Yankees. The game is from June 1, 1925, which just happened to be the first game of Gehrig's 2,130 consecutive-game streak.
  • Finally, if you're a fan of the knuckleball, Little League baseball or great human interest stories, you're probably already familiar with Chelsea Baker, who learned to throw a knuckleball at age 7 from the late Joe Niekro. "The Knuckleball Princess," as she's known in Japan, is now a high school junior pitching for her very good varsity baseball team. How's she doing? She's 2-0 with an 0.78 ERA.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster.
