World Series: Braves' Jorge Soler makes history with leadoff home run in Game 1 vs. Astros

The Atlanta Braves and the Houston Astros kicked off the 2021 World Series on Tuesday night. It didn't take long for Atlanta's Jorge Soler to make history, either. Soler, in the starting lineup for the first time since he tested positive for COVID-19 during the divisional round, became the first player to ever hit a home run in the first plate appearance of the World Series, according to Baseball Reference.

Bernie On The Cardinals: 10 Things That Will Help Rookie Manager Oliver Marmol Become Successful In His New Gig.

Congratulations and good luck to Oliver Marmol. He has the job. He’ll be managing the Cardinals. 1) Marmol needs more good players, and that’s on president of baseball ops John Mozeliak and the St. Louis front office. Former manager Mike Shildt did well to win 90 games last season despite the limitations of his bench, shaky rotation depth, and stressed bullpen. Gaps that already were there before the team went to spring training weren’t addressed until much later in the season. I’m confident Shildt would have won more games if he had a capable, MLB-proven fourth outfielder in the early part of the season to provide injury insurance.

Jordan Sheffield came to the Rule 5 rescue

Welcome to the 2021 edition of Ranking the Rockies, where we take a look back at every player to log playing time for the Rockies in 2021. The purpose of this list is to provide a snapshot of the player in context. The “Ranking” is an organizing principle that’s drawn from Baseball Reference’s WAR (rWAR). It’s not something the staff debated. We’ll begin with the player with the lowest rWAR and end up with the player with the highest.

Reds’ Jonathan India named Rookie of the Year by Baseball America

It’s award season in some places and the Cincinnati Reds have their first one. Second baseman Jonathan India has been named as the Rookie of the Year by Baseball America for what he did in 2021. Unlike the award that is handed out by Major League Baseball as voted on by the Baseball Writers Association of America, or the award handed out by the Players Association which is voted on by the players – Baseball America only gives out one Rookie of the Year award and it’s for all of MLB, not just the American or National League.

The season that was: Teoscar Hernandez

In 2020, Teoscar Hernandez took a rather large step from a guy with a fair bit of potential to, well, a star. He hit 16 home runs, 5th in the AL. His strikeout rate came down, batting average took a jump. He went from a league-average hitter to a guy who won a Silver Slugger award. He even got some MVP votes.

2021 Fantasy Baseball: A Review of “Hits”

I’m not sure if anyone has noticed, but Fake Teams dot com is generating loads of content right now. Football, baseball, hockey, basketball, golf, NASCAR, season-long, DFS...you name it, we probably have it. Editor life mixed with real life (teaching, coaching, etc.) is a delicate balance. Yours truly has one more week of parent/coach life before the heavens open more time for editing and writing. This afternoon I’m forcing this 2021 fantasy baseball review out into the airwaves, though. What follows won’t be perfect. But I hope it contributes in some fashion to a broader conversation.
