Just a quick BBST update! Just a quick update on what is going on with me! Sorry to interrupt your baseball reading but I just wanted to let everyone know that I will now have two Twitter accounts – one for my work at Fan Rag Sports Network and Today’s Knuckleball in which I won’t be overtly cheering for my Oakland teams. Being that my job is to cover the Athletics, I can’t be so overly biased on social media. I’m not biased in my columns on the network, however, I can’t go around (as much as I’d like to) […]

A quick BBST update!


Happy Birthday BBST 6
Happy Birthday BBST! Est. May 9, 2013 I’ll keep this short because I doubt anyone will read more than the title. LOL! BBST has been good to me over the past three years and it allows me to see how far I’ve come, after taking  an eight-year hiatus from writing – much of well – anything after college (there were more lucrative jobs out there … it is what it is!).  My first few months of posts are embarrassingly awful. I had no idea how to blog and hadn’t written in so long so they turned out to be pretty […]

Happy 3rd Birthday BBST!!


thank you based ball
Sean Doolittle and girlfriend Eireann Dolan know how to give back – play Thank You Based Ball The Oakland Athletics had their worst season in 2015 since before now-vice president of baseball operations Billy Beane took over as general manager in prior to the 1998 season. With the A’s seemingly looking at an improved, yet still mediocre, 2016, two brights spots from the 2015 season immediately stand out as having made the season worthwhile after all. Who or what could possibly tame a hostile fan base who no longer trusted their esteemed general manager? A’s closer Sean Doolittle and his girlfriend, […]

Toronto & Oakland
What makes the pair of pitchers from Toronto & Oakland so similar yet so different? Friday afternoon, the Oakland Athletics traded right-handed starter Jesse Chavez for right-handed reliever Liam Hendriks from the Toronto Blue Jays. The two seem to be very different pitchers – one coming from the east coast, one coming from the west coast, one starts while the other pitches out of the bullpen. Yet oddly enough, the pair has had eerily similar, yet opposite, careers that, as of now, have put them on the path to success. For more on this pair of pitchers, their paths through the […]

BYB Hub
The BYB Hub is a place where baseball bloggers come together and share their stories knowledge and love of the game of baseball. Created by the author of BleedingYankeeBlue, Robert Casey, BYB Hub began as a place mostly for Yankees bloggers but soon began expanding to blogs of all kinds of teams!  It’s a great place for bloggers – well established and brand new to be able to get noticed, get their point of view out there and hopefully gain new readers.  At first I was apprehensive to ask to join the Hub because while I talk about all things baseball on […]

Happy 1st Birthday BYB Hub!

I just moved. No, not my blog … It’s still right here at bbstmlb.com! But I moved from the Bay Area up to a small town in the mountains and I will not have full internet service until Wednesday! Yikes! I mean, that’s a lot of baseball Im going to miss and a lot of MLB news! In fact, I’ve already missed that closer Sean Doolittle has finally been activated and that’s just the tip of the iceberg!! So please excuse my approximately – oh say, five day absence. I haven’t given up on BBST and yes, I still work […]

Gonna be MIA for a minute … so don’t forget ...



2015 A's, AL West, Zack Wheeler
Well, just so y’all know, I’ve been hired on to work at FanRag Sports‘ MLB site Today’s Knuckleball u covering for the most part the American League West! Shocking, I know. It’s not like it’s my specialty or anything. LOL! But in all seriousness I am very grateful and excited for this opportunity!! It’s a respected site that respects their writers and I am beyond excited to join the team. As would be most appropriate my first story for Today’s Knuckleball will be about the Oakland Athletics. Yes, they are my favorite team but I was trying to find another story/team […]

What baseball means to me
I wrote a guest post for another great baseball blog called 9 Inning Know It All. I noticed that they’d done a series of guest posts titled ” What baseball means to me” and ended up going through and reading most of them and leaving comments. I was contacted by one of their editors to write my own “What baseball means to me” guest post and I was stoked! It’s the kind of post that you always want to write but never get around to actually writing because there’s breaking news or analysis that out weighs the posts that you’d […]

Well I was lucky to be asked to be a guest on Get Witted Sports and 3 Point Conversion Sports Lounge to discuss the Oakland A’s, the Atlanta Braves and Alex Rodriguez, Saturday morning! I’m very grateful for the opportunity for sure and for another learning experience being able to overcome my fear of being live on-air. Honestly, I am fine doing YouTube videos for the most part but there is something about radio/podcasts that just makes me get waaaaay too nervous. I can write about the A’s all day and scream at my camera on my computer but being live […]

*My original intent was NOT to insult anyone, so let’s try this again and see if my point comes across a bit better, ok? Ok. Here we go … I realized the importance of the distinction between the type of female baseball fan (but it can go for all sports) described, for lack of better descriptive words, “groupies” or “cleat chasers” or just plain “bandwagon fans” who like the sport because the team is winning and it is the “in” thing to like and a female baseball fan who is actually takes sports seriously, understands the game and strives to […]

Not a groupie, not a cleat chaser, just a girl ...


UPDATE as of November 2, 2014, 9:30 pm: **I have yet to get an answer from anyone at the company I am using about when my site will be back up with archives and older posts. I’m frustrated (obviously) and I apologize that there will be very little to read here for the time being. Starting tomorrow though I will be back in the game, even without my archinves so check back in the morning and hopefully I will have some baseball news to share with you!, because I am aware that plenty of moves have already been made! Anyway, […]
