    Cards’ Jon Jay Makes Amazing Circus Catch At Minute Maid Park (Video)

    Last year, the St. Louis Cardinals traded away their former “center fielder of the future,” Colby Rasmus, because they thought they had a very capable replacement in Jon Jay. How has Jay repaid their faith in him? By playing great defense and hitting .299/.358/.412 over his 1,155 career at-bats. In fact, so far this season, […]

    It Was “Star Trek Night” At The Trop in Tampa Last Night (Video)

    Earlier this season, the Tampa Bay Rays and nine other teams around Major League Baseball teamed up with Stand Up 2 Cancer and LucasFilms to hold “Star Wars Nights” at the ballpark. I have no idea if these events actually raised any money for cancer research, but we did get to see Darth Vader on […]

Usually the drunk fans we make fun of actually make it into the game. But […]

    Things Got Pretty Heated Between The Cubs And Nats Last Night (Video)

      Things got pretty heated last night between the Cubs and Nationals in Washington, DC, and on two separate occasions the tensions almost escalated into full-on brawls. The first close call came in the bottom of the 5th inning, when Nationals third base coach Bo Porter got into a heated argument on the top step of the […]

    A’s Pitcher Brandon McCarthy Takes Line Drive To The Head (Video)

      There was a terrifying incident during the A’s-Angeles game yesterday in Oakland. Oakland ace Brandon McCarthy was pitching to the Angels’ Erick Aybar with one out and nobody on in the top of the fourth when Aybar scorched a line drive right back up the middle that hit McCarthy in the head. The ball […]
