I just picked up the baseball preview issue of Sports Illustrated, and wanted to pass on a must read in the March 31st issue.
Big league pitcher Latroy Hawkins writes a terrific article about today's baseball, and some changes he'd make.
I like his idea of sending poor performing umpires back to the minors, just like players.
Latroy speaks his opinions from his 20 years playing in the big leagues.
At age 41, Latroy will be the oldest player in the majors this year as a member of the Colorado Rockies.
He also has a interesting tale on MLB and Alex Rodriguez.
Check out his article, page 108, of the SI baseball preview issue.
