    An MLB Collaborative TL: Piece of Cake: The Cubs win Game 6 in '03
    Threadmarks: Go Cubs Go!

    It was a controversy. It was pandemonium. A foul ball down the left field by Luis Castillo was hit down the left field line. and almost caught by Moises Alou, was batted by a Cubs fan, a fan whose name was lost to history, and the play was ruled a foul ball. The Cubs seem to be floundering...

  9. AHC: Save the American Association

    So we're almost at opening day for MLB and it's only fitting to start thinking about some of baseballs biggest What If situations. The one I'm focusing on involves the American Association (AA), it's often called the unrecognized Major League and lasted for 10 seasons between 1882 and 1891, it...

    Kings of the Motor City-How the Detroit Tigers dominated the 2000s.

    (This is a timeline I decided to do along with End of the Page kinda as a side project) “I remember back in June of 97 the definding moment of our dynasty was during the MLB Draft. We were torn between probably one of the best arms of the draft in Matt Anderson and one of the best prospects...

  13. WI: Harry Frazee Sells The Red Sox in 1920?

    So what if instead of selling Babe Ruth's contract in 1920 to the New York Yankees, Red Sox owner Harry Frazee sold the club entirely. Not a lot is known about the situation just that Frazee seemed to need cash in a hurry. Securing the rights to a play "No, No, Nanette" that would not appear...

    AHC: The Yankees Are Never As Good As OTL

    Just as the tin says, your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to make it so that that New York Yankees never become the powerhouse they are now.

    So what if in Game 7 of the 1997 World Series Jose Mesa had closed it out successfully to win the World Series for the Indians? What would’ve that led to MLB in the offseason of 1997 and beyond (such as with Jose Mesa's friendship with Omar Vizquel and the Marlins' fire sale)?

  19. Is it possible to save the Federal League?

    Between 1913 to 1915 the Federal League was operated as a third major league for professional baseball.
