On Tuesday night, America will be introduced to the next wave of heroes in the Major League Baseball All-Star Game on FOX. The Home Run Derby on Monday night featured up-and-coming players such as Yasiel Puig, Yeonis Cespedes and Giancarlo Stanton. I would have liked to have seen Mike Trout (his manager held him out) […]

Call me a nerd. I love to watch shows about how things work. Those who have followed my ranting on this site and FOX Sports Radio and past stops in the media world know that I love to cook. I’m able to claim some proficiency in chemistry by doing so (pad your stats). I don’t […]

MLB Insider Seth Everett, a member of the FOX Sports Radio family, joins “The Fantasy Freaks” to close out the “first half” of the Major League Baseball season. Nate Lundy and I queue up the questions on the highlights of the first half, trade chatter and a touch of Biogenesis. SethEverett714Freaks

Harmon’s Podcast 7.15 includes chatter on the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, the Home Run Derby, trade rumors and a lot about social media and pop culture. The Zimmerman-Martin decision came down on Saturday night, and many athletes took to Twitter with a response. For Roddy White and Victor Cruz, their word choices were regrettable […]

Harmon does exactly what you’d expect. He celebrates his Chicago roots and the improbable comeback by the Chicago Blackhawks to capture the 2013 Stanley Cup Championship. He discusses the celebration in Wrigleyville, the Conn Smythe Trophy debate and the laundry list of injuries that have been revealed. The closing minutes include some baseball talk and […]

The Red Sox have been one of the great surprises early this MLB season. Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz (you can talk about “cheating” at your leisure) are dealing at the top of the rotation and David Ortiz possesses a 26-game hitting streak dating back to last season. The potential problem that has arisen for […]

Did you bet the Derby favorite? Did you spend your hard-earned dollars on Saturday’s Mayweather PPV? If you enjoy yourself a good Mint Julep, you can dole out a cool $1,000 and procure a beautiful cup. Yu Darvish didn’t extend his modest winning streak against the Red Sox on Sunday. He did, however, rack up […]

Brett Lawrie made his season debut for the Blue Jays on Tuesday against the White Sox. Lawrie’s gone hitless in seven at-bats with four strikeouts and one RBI. I only felt compelled to put a line on him here because he’s returned to third base. Those salivating about a potential move to second base will […]

According to The Chicago Tribune , Carlos Marmol has lost his closer role to Kyuji Fujikawa following another terrible performance on Saturday. We’ve been watching this situation and sounded the alarm before the season started, so go check your waiver wire now. On Sunday morning, CBSSports.com noted that vandals had taken to Marmol’s Wikipedia page […]

Welcome to the new world order. This is the first entry in a new series dedicated to the good, bad and ugly of the day’s baseball activity. I’ll peruse the notes in the Twitterverse, monitor local views and get you ready to dominate the office water cooler. Carl Crawford was out of the lineup for […]

The first game of the 2013 Major League Baseball season was played on Sunday night. Everyone’s favorite punching bag, the Houston Astros, defeated the Texas Rangers by a count of 8-2. The number of “take a picture of the standings” Tweets that I read was positively astounding. Those Tweets were immediately followed by a barrage […]

Why is Jim Johnson the “Fantasy Man-Crush” of the week? OK. I suppose I could just trot out the entire Baltimore squad or give an “Attaboy!” to Buck Schowalter following his 1,000th career win. Maybe I celebrate Chris Davis for ending a terrible day at the plate (0-for-8 with five strikeouts) with a win on […]

I knew that would grab your attention. Obviously, I haven’t gotten the call as a replacement player. But, if we were another day or two out, it just might come down to lottery tickets. As the countdown clock winds down to the red carpet pre-game festivities, it seems that the “honor” of playing in the […]

To call the current climate surrounding the Los Angeles Dodgers tense and confrontational would be gross understatements. Major League Baseball has stepped into the day-to-day operations and a number of payroll transactions and top-level decisions are being put under the proverbial microscope. On Tuesday afternoon, Los Angeles owner Frank McCourt sat down in the hot […]
