    Yeah, no doubt. This year we finally have a team that can compete on both sides of the ball!

    And I'm craving Andrew Mason's V-logs from training camp on denverbroncos.com.

    Barry Bonds is a cheater who doesn't deserve to play pro baseball and should not be allowed to hold any records.

    I don't want you getting spoiled Mal! You will have your daily dose of Bonds disparagement.

    I'm going to touch on something here because there is yet to be a blog for the 1st base coach of the Rockies affiliate who was killed by the line drive....

    Very sad, and I am sorry for his family. It's tragic.

    But I have to now touch on something that has bugged me for a long time.
    1. There is almost ZERO need for a 1st base coach in the game of baseball. Yes, he's maybe there to call back a runner. But it's damn rare for a player to tag up and go from 1st to 2nd base on a fly ball.
    2. Why is there a rule for players on the basepaths to wear a hard hat but the infield players, umpires, and base coaches are exempt?

    I mean, I always found it idiotic that NHL refs could skate around without helmets when it was required for all players to don them.

    Now, maybe a helmet or other protective head gear would not have saved this coaches life, but then it might have. And might is a hell of a lot better than not at all.

    When will the authorities wise up enough to see that safety FAR outweighs the fans "need" to see these players faces and heads.

    Yes, some will say this is a "freak" kind of thing, but how often do we see and hear about fans getting hit by foul balls and line drives and even bats while they are sitting in the stands. It's not an uncommon event.

    This could have been avoided. Plain and simple.
