A Cooperstown conversation with Jay Jaffe

What makes someone a baseball Hall of Famer?

Finding a useful answer to that question is trickier than you might think. That hasn’t stopped author Jay Jaffe from trying to find a way – to create one, really; his new book “The Cooperstown Casebook: Who’s In the Hall of Fame, Who Should Be In, and Who Should Pack Their Plaques” (Thomas Dunne, $25.99) is a meticulously-researched and engagingly-written work that not only celebrates the greats in the Hall, but also points out a few of the greats still stuck outside the gates and a number of mediocre players who snuck in through luck and/or cronyism.

Not so with MLB.

Major League Baseball has the longest season of any of the major professional sports leagues, with 162 games to be played before reaching the October postseason. That many games leaves room for a lot of changes to happen over the season's six-month course.

Red Sox Report Card – April

It sure has been great having baseball back.

As always, the long winter left us waiting in great anticipation for the return of the thump of the glove and the crack of the bat. Spring has sprung and the Boston Red Sox – along with MLB’s 29 other teams – have taken the field.
