Carlos Beltran is retiring, twenty years after lacing up his shoes for his first Major League game, and one month after being a part of his first World Series Championship with the Houston Astros. We salute Carlos Beltran! Twenty years playing a sport at the top of the game, playing it with honor, and still being productive at an age when many athletes are years into retirement.

Pro Athletes Charitable Activities

07 November, 2017

Pro athletes charitable activities are not often publicized which, really, is a shame.  We know about the athletes in their professional theater.  We oftentimes know a little, or a lot, about their personal lives.  But when it comes to philanthropy, the selfless giving to a worthy cause, this news somehow manages to escape the newspapers and online articles. As with any activity there are some who pursue it with gusto and determination, and there are those who barely consider it an option. [...]

2017 World Series Is Great For Baseball

31 October, 2017

2017 World Series watchers will tell you that the 113th series between American and National League Champs, this time between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros, is one of the best things to happen to Major League Baseball in a very long time. Not only is this a Series between teams not named New York, Boston, or Chicago, but it is a riveting MLB series with more plot twists than a daytime soap opera. Case in point: the Series game Sunday, 10/29, had higher ratings than Sunday [...]

2017 NFL Trade Deadline Fast Approaching

24 October, 2017

2017 NFL trade deadline is Oct. 31 at 4 p.m. ET, and the rumors are flying fast and furious about NFL transactions, which is always amusing since most teams do not complete trades in the mid-season.  Still, most teams are still in the hunt for the playoffs, and injuries have left quite a few teams with some gaping holes in talent, so anything is possible. Some squads will still try to shop veteran players to clear out cap space or because of productivity. Like every year, there are several t [...]

Financial Preparations for Life After Sports

17 October, 2017

Financial preparations for life after your playing days are over can be a daunting and yes, frightening, topic of discussion.  Not a single professional player that I know really wants to accept the inevitable, that his or her playing days could end tomorrow, but that is the reality all athletes face.  We were reminded of that fact this past Sunday when another pro football player sustained a career-ending injury, and several others were knocked out for the remainder of the season, including A [...]

Shohei Otani Offers Unique Free Agent Case Study

10 October, 2017

Shohei Otani, the Japanese superstar being labeled as the “Japanese Babe Ruth,” is most likely going to apply for free agency to play in the Major Leagues, ending a five-year career in the Japanese Professional Baseball Association.  If that does, indeed, happen, he will offer one of the most intriguing MLB free agent  cases we have seen in quite awhile in Major League Baseball. For several reason . . . Because Otani is still only 23, he can only be signed to a minor-league contract [...]

MLB Off-Season Work Begins Now!

03 October, 2017

MLB off-season began last Sunday for twenty of the thirty MLB teams.  Ten lucky, and skilled, teams go on to the playoffs; twenty teams begin looking at the reasons why they are not attending the post-season party. Trades and deals cannot be made in Major League Baseball until the end of the World Series, but that does not mean serious planning is not happening.  By this time of the year teams have already identified their major weaknesses and needs.  They are fully aware of their shortcom [...]

Professional Athletes Face Unique Financial Realities

26 September, 2017

Professional athletes face a unique set of financial realities and problems, unlike any we “normal” people face. No, this is not a bleeding heart tale of a professional athlete who lost his wealth through mismanagement.  This is simply an attempt to help laymen to understand the unique set of circumstances facing a professional athlete who suddenly receives wealth. The first thing to understand is that almost all professionals are out of sports by the time they are thirty.  If they l [...]
