Was asked, “What are the chances Robby Cano enters the Hall of Fame, one day?” Sure, he’s young…but he’s very durable and is already amassed career numbers better than you think. Let’s see who he’s passed. www.BattingStanceGuy.com Twitter: @BattingStanceG

After all the dust settled from yesterday’s trade deadline, here’s what we were left with, the Royals are still not in contention. As for the rest of the league, BSG breaks down the top 7 deals to go down this past week, from the home of Oswalt’s rocky start as a new member of Phillies.

It’s all about the West Coast this week folks. If you missed “Mound-Gate,” starring the age old Dodgers-Giants rivalry, Don Mattingly, Jonathan Broxton, Bruce Bochy’s vision, and ultimately Andres Torres’s bat, don’t worry BSG will fill you in on that, and all the other happenings not in Cooperstown this past week. And if you have any questions, just ask him yourself in D.C. on Wednesday when the Nationals take on the Braves @ Nationals Park. If your copy of the book is sadly unsigned, now’s your chance. It’s the Week In Review!

Coming to you from the shores of Mailbu, it’s the Independence Day edition of the Week in Review! BSG has much to say about the upcoming all-star break and the league’s first rendition of the rosters, but he’ll save that for later in the week. For your national holiday, he digs deep into the numbers supplied by the good folks at wezen-ball.com, and comes back with the only 4th of July, baseball-themed, video-blog to analyze base-running times. God bless America. It’s the Week in Review!

Well folks if you’re like us this Monday morning, you’re watching the Netherlands-Slovokia match with a little hole in your heart after the U.S. exit from the World Cup. Well BSG is here to brighten your day with the World Cup edition of the Week in Review. What do Lionel Messi and Dustin Pedroia have in common? For Argentina let’s hope it’s not injuries. But how bout France and Carlos Zambrana? Or Edwin Jackson’s No-Hitter vs the Rays and Portugal’s group stage clean-sheet? It’s all here in the Week in Review. Enjoy!
21. June 2010
In this week’s rendition of the Week in Review, BSG takes a look at the “stop-action-pose,” and who’s doing it best. And he had some heavy contenders this week with things like Adrian Beltre’s falldown blast over the Green Monster. But in the end, Hanley Ramirez takes the cake. BSG explains why. It’s the Week In Review!
31. May 2010
Sorry for the delay on the weekly review folks. What can we say, even BSG enjoys a good Memorial Day in Tahoe. But we’ve got you covered on all the past week’s top stories from around the league. Be it Buster Posey jumpstarting the Giants’ offense, Mr. Perfection himself, Roy Halladay, going for the 2nd perfect game in a matter of weeks, or the marriage of his cousin Libby Frantz, BSG’s on the case. Enjoy!
24. May 2010
In this week’s edition of the Week-In-Review, BSG takes a look at some low-to-high stories that kicked off the first week of interleague play. He’s got the Nationals and Nyger Morgan, the Braves and Brooks Conrad, and the practice swing hilarity of the Houston Astros’ Hunter Pence. Jose Lima, you will be missed. It’s the Week-In-Review.
17. May 2010
BSG is back from Book Week madness with the current installment of the Week in Review. Lotta stories to cover from the past week, including the Reds in first place, but BSG wants to focus on some walk-offs. We’ve got Kubel, Kearns, Bosch, and Olivo, and if you don’t know why the names are important, don’t worry, BSG’s got you covered. Enjoy!

The Rangers looked good in their first test against prominent division rivals, the Oakland A’s, winning the series this week 2-1. And as they head up to Toronto today to challenge the mighty Blue Jays, BSG takes a look at what makes this such a great stance team. With the Angels on the decline, C.J. Wilson getting things done on the mound, and Hamilton, Kinsler, and Cruz at the plate, might this be the year the Rangers add a 2nd win to their postseason journal? Or is it just the year you buy a book about batting stances? Either way, it’s the 2010 Rangers.
13. May 2010
Just to prove that we haven’t forgotten our roots now that we’re big time published authors, today we continue on with our team “preview” series. We’ll kick things off with the Reds, who, as BSG notes, haven’t seen a winning season since 2000. But things are looking up in Cincy these days, and partially thanks to the stance magic of Brandon Phillips, the Reds currently find themselves only a game back of the mighty Cardinals. In a preview that takes an equal look at fertility and baseball, here are the 2010 Reds. Enjoy!
8. May 2010
For your weekend, BSG breaks down the red-hot San Diego Padres, gives a stance-analysis of their lineup, and makes the argument for PETCO Park being the kid-friendliest place in all of Major League Baseball. What more could you want? It’s the 2010 Padres. Enjoy!
7. May 2010
From the way things have started out there, whoever comes outta the NL West this year is gonna have to win a fight. Will it be the Rockies? Gammonds and Reynolds like em, but does BSG? He got an inside look at the rocky mountain boys last year, but, as usual, it’s the lineup that interests him most. And for our daily reader Don Baylor, he’s got a couple suggestions on how to manage your hitters. It’s the 2010 Rockies.

How many weeks into the season will calling these things previews start to sound ridiculous? We gotta be getting close. Man how bout that game 2 last night Cleveland? You need an elbow repair STAT! Here’s hoping the good people of Cleveland still have several weeks left of pulling for the Cavs. Oh, and not completely unrelated to that, here are the 2010 Indians. Enjoy!
30. April 2010
BSG’s worries that Magglio Ordonez stored his mojo in his jheri curl mullet were calmed yesterday as Mags got his 2,000th career hit in a win over the Twins. Those two seemed to have picked back up right where they left off last year in the AL Central, which should mean another fun battle for all of us. BSG likes the Detroit lineup, and, like the rest of the world, thinks the Damon addition will probably help. But he still misses that jheri curl. Enjoy!

Fun fact for the day: today in 1986 Roger Clemens struck out 20 Mariners. The M’s are lookin better in 2010 though, and after a pre-season cover appearance on ESPN The Magazine, they’re the trendy pick in the AL West. Maybe folks are just sick of the Angels taking it, who knows. If you’re not familiar with the new Seattle lineup, BSG doesn’t miss a one. Here are your 2010 Seattle Mariners. Enjoy!

So we swear we recorded this before the Rays had the best record in baseball, but even if you don’t believe us, they do, and we did, so lets get on it with it. BSG likes him some Rays. He likes that it would feel as natural to see Madden at a Coldplay concert as in the dugout at Tropicana. He likes that they’ve got a roster brimming with young talent. He likes that, in the toughest division in baseball, they’ve come outta the gates red hot. Does that have anything to do with the fact that they gave him his own jersey? You decide. The 2010 Rays.
27. April 2010
Fresh off his career 1000th hit, BSG takes a look at Hideki Matsui and the rest of the 2010 Angels. Just how does Mike Scioscia keep this club at the top of the AL West and competing in the playoffs year after year? BSG isn’t sure, but he loves the lineup and the fact that the All-Star game will be in Anaheim this year. Enjoy your 2010 Angels!
