2015 MLB Hall of Fame Ballot

National Baseball Hall of Fame

In alphabetical order:

Jeff Bagwell – I think the Red Sox might think about how helpful Larry Anderson was for them when they traded Jeff Bagwell away for him. With the Astros, Bagwell was a constant power threat in the middle of the lineup. The biggest problem for Bagwell to overcome is his lack of a big stat. 2,314 hits, 488 doubles, 449 home runs, 1529 RBI and .297 batting average, none of these on their own will get him in, but the consistency that brought together all those numbers should get him close in 2015.

Craig Biggio – Along with Bagwell, Biggio combined to be a deadly combination in the Astros lineup. 3060 hits, 668 doubles, 291 homers, and a .281 average are pretty great stats. The best thing about Biggio is that he would play anywhere on the field. After coming up and playing four seasons at catcher,  and fifteen years as a second basemen, he went to play another five in the outfield, mainly in center. He is one of the greatest examples of what a baseball player should be.

Press Row Podcast – EA Summer Showcase

Press Row Podcast

I was lucky enough to tag along with Rich Grisham (@RichGrisham) to see the EA Summer Showcase in New York City. We had a great time, got to play FIFA 15, NHL 15 and Madden NFL 15. As well as talk to developers on each of those games. You can hear those interviews as well as a follow up with Rich, myself and Polygon’s Samit Sarkar (@SamitSarkar) on the latest episode of the Press Row Podcast.

The 92nd edition of the Press Row Podcast sees host Rich Grisham (@richgrisham) joined by Press Row regular T.J. Lauerman (@thatsportsgamer) on a trip to New York City to get some hand-on time, presentations, and demonstrations of three key EA Sports fall releases. Rich gets a tour of some new features in Madden NFL 15 with producer Danny Doeberling, sits down with the head of NHL 15 Sean Ramjagsingh (Rammer34), and gets a demonstration of the key elements of FIFA 15 along with a 1-on-1 discussion of it with its lead designer Santiago Jaromillo (Santiagoj83). Then, Rich and T.J. are joined by fellow Press Row regular Samit Sarkar (@samitsarkar), who also attended the event, to summarize their feelings and compare notes.

MLB 14: The Show PS4 Launchtacular

MLB14TheShowLogo

The wait is almost over, and I’m ready to play MLB 14: The Show on the PS4. For me, there is only one way to do that, way too much, for way too long. So this Tuesday, May 6th, I’ll be streaming the full docket of fifteen scheduled MLB games for that day on my Twitch channel, http://www.Twitch.TV/ThatSportsGamer. The stream will start around 10am ET.

To break up the fifteen games, and not waste the whole day, I’m going to do five games with Player Lock, five games with Quick Counts, and five full games. This should allow me to get some fairly accurate numbers on gameplay times between using Quick Counts vs Full Games.

If you can’t be around for the live stream, I’ll also make all the game videos available on YouTube after the fact, but you’ll definitely be missing out on a bunch of shenanigans and fun that we’ll be having in the chat.  Also, as of now there are two scheduled guests, but you never know who might call in and make an appearance or drop by the chat.
