What Happened to Logan Morrison? *I’m primarily posting this to my blog in order to use it as part of a tutorial video I’m putting together, but I hope there are also a few things in here you find interesting.

Updating Baseball’s Dictionary Did you know that marine scientists are making an effort to replace the name starfish with sea star?

He'd put together two-straight above average offensive seasons and ended his 2015 season with a big exclamation point.
