Here are some players whose careers are linked together; Rod Carew and Ichiro; Ty Cobb and Pete Rose; Lefty Grove and Randy Johnson; Stan Musial and George Brett; Josh Gibson and Roy Campanella; Jimmie Foxx and Harmon Killebrew; and Duke Snider and Reggie Jackson.
The next coupling hit me this week as I watched all the hoopla surrounding Barry Bonds. Click Below for More!

Best Player in the Game Today?

Batter up August 5th, 2007
Baseball is a talking sport. Debates about players can quickly lead to heated arguments.
For instance, if you were starting a team today who would be the first player chosen for your mythical team based upon 2007 performance.
Some scouts, general managers, broadcasters, and managers discussed this question the other day. Their answers, filled with emotion and conviction, ranged all over the field.
Minnesota catcher Joe Mauer got the most support. Mauer plays a key position on the diamond, hits for power plus average, and is a team leader.

Has the Media Gone Overboard ?George Borges Answers SI's Reilly

ok Rick, you’ve finally managed to push me over the top…have been wanting to scream at the top of my lungs for a long time at the sick (not sick the way my 11 y/o daughter uses the word, but sick as in mentally disturbed) obsession you and a great many of your colleagues have with bonds – however, having a life (job, family, playing ball, attending and enjoying sporting events, etc.) and not really knowing how to type has discouraged me from taking the time to respond to the volumes of venom you and those of your ilk have been gleefully spewing forth for such a long period of time …but, as the hit pieces keep coming, well, let’s just touch on some things, not necessarily in order of importance, that should be noted.
