    Yoenis Cespedes Also Took a Horse to Mets Spring Training (Video)

    Last week we got a lot of really cool and weird cars driven by Yoenis Cespedes to Mets training in Florida. It looks like he’s keeping the streak alive, but now he’s going with living, breathing forms of transportation, including this horse he rode in on. He also dropped a cool $7,000 on a 270-pound […]

    Brewers Prospect Brett Phillips Has an Amazingly Awesome Laugh (Video)

    We don’t normally discuss the laughs of pro athletes, because, well, pro athletes really don’t seem to laugh all that much. But something’s got Milwaukee Brewers prospect Brett Phillips in stitches, and he’s got a laugh that seems to match his enthusiasm. Now, it’s clear that his teammates are laughing at his laugh, but I […]

    John Axford’s 2016 Oscar Predictions Are In: And the Winners Are…

    Back in 2013, Major League Baseball pitcher John Axford shocked the world with his Academy Awards predictions, plucking 14 of his 15 Oscar picks. The next year, he was even better, going a perfect 18-for-18. He hit a bit of a snag during the 2015 Oscars, managing to correctly predict just 17 of a possible 24 categories, […]

    Yoenis Cespedes’ Friday Spring Training Car Is…This Jeep (Video)

    After showing up in a lifted truck, a three-wheel…something, a Lamborghini Aventador, and an Alfa Romeo on Monday through Thursday, Yoenis Cespedes decided to close out his Week of Many Cars with…a Jeep. It’s a cool Jeep, but kind of disappointing. I guess anything that wasn’t a spaceship with strobe lights would seem like a […]

    The Yoenis Cespedes Spring Training Car Parade Continues…

    After showing up in a pimped-out truck on Monday, then a reverse bat-cycle thing on Tuesday, word got out that Yoenis Cespedes, who recently signed an extension worth $75 million, would be taking a different car to spring training every day that week.

    Red Sox Owner Defends Pablo Sandoval’s Portly Physique

    I guess if the guy who signs Pablo Sandoval‘s paychecks isn’t worried about the third baseman’s portly physique, the rest of us shouldn’t be either. While speaking to the media at the Red Sox spring training facility on Wednesday, owner John Henry took a moment to address the elep—err, panda in the room. In a […]

    Diamondbacks Pitcher Josh Collmenter Teaches Physics to His Teammates (Video)

    Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter stood up in front of his teammates yesterday and taught them about physics. And I don’t just mean, like, the physics of baseball. I mean he brought in a dry erase board and various other props and gave a formal lecture covering such concepts as gravitational lensing and Einstein’s general […]

    Yoenis Cespedes re-signed with the New York Mets last month, and apparently he’s already started to get newer, bigger paychecks, because the cars he’s showing up to training camp in look like something a lottery winner would be driving. Making his appearance in Port St. Lucie, he first pulled up in this custom truck monstrosity: […]
