A Brave Signing: Journeyman Liván Hernández Signs...
As a Braves fan, I couldn’t be any happier about this signing. Despite his career (174-176) record, Hernandez brings a sense of veteran savvy to the ATL rotation. No doubt about it.

Although in America, the first official game of 2012 has been deemed the “Fake Opening Day,” this game—which counts towards the MLB...
Dodgers sold! Magic Johnson’s bidding group won the battle to gain ownership rights of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Can’t believe my eyes seeing the price tag, reportedly worth a whopping $2.15 billion.
