    Sports mascots are often gifted with extraordinary “abilities” that we humans can only dream of.  But usually those same “abilities” are also pretty useless, like doing the Macarena during the 7th inning stretch, or getting into fights with Barney the Purple Dinosaur. However, at a recent spring training game between the Minnesota Twins and the […]

    The vast majority of the time, you really don’t even notice where the umpires are on the field during a baseball game. They just kind of blend in and do their jobs. Unfortunately, during yesterday’s spring training game between the Reds and Indians, everyone noticed where third base umpire Brad Myers was. And that’s because […]

    The Lehigh Valley IronPigs’ New Bacon Gear Is Flying Off the Shelves

    The Lehigh Valley IronPigs, Triple-A affiliates of the Philadelphia Phillies, have had some of the best-selling gear among all minor league baseball teams for the last five years simply because they are called the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. However, ever since they announced that the team would sport caps with strips of bacon on them for […]

    Slimmer, Juice-Free Barry Bonds Shows Up to Giants Spring Training

    The final contract that MLB home run king (with an asterisk) Barry Bonds signed with the San Francisco Giants included a 10-year “services” deal, meaning the guy would have to earn some of his millions by serving as a spring training instructor after his playing days were done. Well, now his playing days are done, and […]

    John Axford Goes 18-for-18 with Oscar Predictions

    John Axford is pretty much incapable of pitching a perfect game, seeing as how he is a reliever.  But as he proved last night, he is more than capable of calling a perfect Oscars. That is exactly what the newly acquired member of the Cleveland Indians did last night, as Axford went a perfect 18-for-18 […]

    There are some MLB players who appear as though they haven’t lost a single step or missed a single beat over the course of the winter break, like the Oakland Atheltics’ Josh Reddick, who was scaling walls on Wednesday like it was already midseason. But for every Josh Reddick, there’s a Carl Crawford, diving head […]

    We’re just one day into the MLB spring training schedule, but apparently Oakland A’s right fielder Josh Reddick is already dialed in. Yesterday, new Giants left fielder Michael Morse drilled a ball to right field on a trajectory that should have given him a home run. However, Reddick scaled the fence like Spider-Man and made […]

    Here’s Jose Reyes Rapping With Toronto Reporters (Video)

    You can question whether or not Jose Reyes is the best player on the Toronto Blue Jays’ roster, what with the likes of Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion still hanging around.  But what you can’t question is whether or not he’s the best rapper on the team’s roster. He is.  And now we have the […]
