Both Ryan Braun and Ian Kinsler are chasing the 30/30 club. They are both in pretty good shape going into today.

Ryan Braun - 28 HRS and 31 SBs.

Ian Kinsler - 29 HRs and 25 SBs.

Looks to be a two way race for Jewish MLBer of the Year.

We will keep you updated.

    White Sox call up pitcher Dylan Axelrod to fill out their team. Axelrod is part of a recent influx of young Jewish ball players. He is the first Jewish player on the White Sox since Aaron Peroda. The White Sox called up Axelrod who went 9-3 with a 2.69 ERA in 26 appearances (24 starts) in the minors this season. He was most recently in AAA Charlotte. Best of luck and you know we will be following his progress.

    While his numbers were down, few thought Igor Olshansky’s job was in jeopardy because of his play. But his contract was a problem. Saturday’s NFL cuts came in and the Cowboys demoted the Defensive Lineman and the 2009 TGR NFL Player of the Year. Olshansky should find his way onto a different roster soon and we we will have that information when its available. Good luck to big Igor. For more click HERE.
