MLB: Raines awaits his call from the Hall

Dec. 27, 2013: The fact we are now into year number seven of the Tim Raines Hall of Fame watch is more than a little disappointing. Anyone who watched him play throughout his 23 year career, knows exactly just how good and dominant a ball player he was, Had Raines played for any other team than the Montreal Expos during his first ten years in the big leagues, this would all be a moot point...as he would have been enshrined in Cooperstown long ago.

Krueger actually helped the Oilers take a step forward in 2013

Jun. 14, 2013: It has been exactly one week since Ralph Krueger was relieved of his duties as head coach of the Edmonton Oilers.
