Did Fidel Castro nearly have a career in professional baseball? (Big League Stew)

Sat, 26 Nov 2016 10:08:33 PST

Fidel Castro, the father of communist Cuba who led the country as Prime Minister from 1959 to 1976 and then as President from 1976 to 2008, died on Friday. In fact, Castro was just in the sports headlines on Friday when San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick continued to defend Castro’s legacy despite his oversight of an oppressive regime that would seemingly contradict Kaepernick’s recent protests. As the story goes, Castro was a pitcher at the University of Havana when he began drawing the attention of scouts in the United States in the late 1940s.

Sat, 12 Nov 2016 21:05:17 PST

Brandon Phillips is reportedly more open to a trade this winter. There’s a reason Brandon Phillips didn’t make our list of 25 players who could get traded this offseason. The 35-year-old second baseman owns full no-trade rights as a result of his 10-and-5 status, which means 10 years in the major leagues and the last five with the same team (in this case the Cincinnati Reds), and in the past he hasn’t been afraid to use them.



25 MLB players who could get traded this offseason (Big League Stew)

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 10:34:33 PST

White Sox pitcher Chris Sale is one of the biggest names on the trade market. The Major League Baseball offseason is officially underway!
