Perfect Game All-American Classic: Note Sheet

Note Sheet for use during PG All-American Classic

Joe Hamrahi (@JHamrahi), Jason Parks (@ProfessorParks), and Chris Rodriguez (@Chrisrod13) will all be in San Diego for tonight's Perfect Game All-American Classic -- an all-star game showcasing some of the top draft-eligible amateur baseball talent in the US and Canada).

The Worst One-Team Players

Most players who've spent long careers with one team are stars. These guys weren't.

At the end of June, Ruben Amaro said he hoped Chase Utley would be a “Phillie for life,” an outcome he made much more likely by extending Utley earlier this week.

Consider some of the other recent one-team talents: the Yankee quartet of Bernie Williams, Jorge Posada, Mariano Rivera, and Derek Jeter; Jeff Bagwell, Chipper Jones, and Todd Helton. David Wright, Joe Mauer, and Yadier Molina (among others) might join that group.
