JOHN AXFORD: From Ontario to Canisius to the Major Leagues - Blog

Posted by Ivan on October 8, 2014 - 5:31pm

The journey for John Axford to the Major Leagues started in Ontario, Canada, continued through Notre Dame, and came back to WNY when he enrolled at Canisius College in Buffalo. The right-handed relief pitcher made it to the majors in 2009, and has been there ever since. He debuted with Milwaukee, and eventually supplanted soon-to-be Hall of Famer Trevor Hoffman as their closer. John's 46 saves led the NL in 2011; that and his 1.95 ERA earned him the NL Rolaids Relief Award. His home address has changed a few times in the last two years. The Brewers traded Axford to St.

We also went over briefly the state of finances of the organization, etc.

Mets: if not now then when - Story

Posted by Bob Plezia on March 21, 2013 - 9:37pm

Had the opportunity to watch the Cards at the Mets today in Spring Training.
At the post game meet, the Mets had a couple of announcements: 1) Jon Niese would open the season for the Mets, and 2) David Wright was named the team captain.
These are honors usually bestowed on the top players on the team. And if you look at the Mets' player records, both of these players have reasonable successful numbers. Are they league leading? No. But, this team is not league leading either.

Justin Verlander: MVP? - Blog

Posted by Matthew Young on September 21, 2011 - 1:10pm

The last time a pitcher won the MVP award was when Dennis Eckersley captured the title in 1992. This year, however, there has been a shift in momentum in Major League Baseball. If the mid-90s and early 2000s were the age of the homerun, then the 2010s should be considered the age of the pitcher. There has been a spike in no hitters over the last two years, one of these coming from Justin Verlander this past May. This gem of a game marked his second career no hitter.
