    Picture Of The Day: Can You Hear Me Now?

    I wonder what kind of reception they get with those bananas?  It has got to be better than what we got from those giant bricks many of us used back in the early 90s. All kidding aside, I’ve been thinking about this image and it just doesn’t make any sense to me.  After all, who […]

    Marlins’ Pitchers Trap Jose Ceda In The Bullpen Bathroom (Video)

    When the Florida Marlins’ pitchers decided to trap rookie pitcher Jose Ceda in the visiting bullpen’s bathroom at Citizens Bank Park last night, they probably thought that they had just executed one of the greatest prank in the history of baseball pranks.  What they failed to realize, however, was that the joke was on them.  […]

  • Poncho + Wind = FAIL! (Video)

    Poncho + Wind = FAIL! (Video)

    Those clear ponchos can already be a pain in the rear to put on, but that pain grows even larger when one has to deal with violent winds while attempting to cover up from the rain. The winds around game time were approximately 30 mph in Philadelphia, and that was easily enough to make life […]

    Catching A Foul Ball Like A Boss (Video)

    For those of you who have grown tired of watching fans at baseball games catch foul balls while holding their children with one arm, we have something new for you.  It comes to us via yesterday’s game between the Cleveland Indians and the Texas Rangers at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, where one fan’s phone call […]

  • Sparks Fly Off Alex Avila’s Mask (Video)

    Sparks Fly Off Alex Avila’s Mask (Video)

    Sparks were flying at U.S. Cellular Field last night, and surprisingly, it had nothing to do with Ozzie Guillen or the White Sox inability to get their offense going against Tigers’ starting pitcher Justin Verlander.  Instead, the sparks that could be seen flying behind home plate in the bottom of the eighth inning had everything […]

    The Nats Rookies Dressed Up As Smurfs Yesterday (Video)

    If you were walking down the streets of New York yesterday and saw some blue-skinned characters, don’t be afraid.  Everything you witnessed in the movie Avatar is not about to take place in real life.  Instead, those blue characters you witnessed were rookies currently playing with the Washington Nationals, who were in town to take […]

    Orioles Mascot Stretches And Has A Word With Curtis Granderson (Video)

    It can be tough to grab the attention of a New York Yankees superstar for long enough to have a meaningful conversation with them, but the Baltimore Orioles mascot was able to use the perks of his profession(?) to do just that prior to yesterday’s game between the Orioles and the Yankees. While Yankees center […]

  • Unaware Fan Hit In The Neck By Home Run Ball (Video)

    Unaware Fan Hit In The Neck By Home Run Ball (Video)

    Watching balls fly into the stands at high speeds is all part of the game of baseball.  As a result, you will find plenty of signs around every Major League stadium reminding fans to “be aware of objects leaving the field of play.” Coincidentally, one man present at Petco Park for yesterday’s game between the […]

    Nick Hundley Takes A Spill Into The Photo Well (Update w/ Video)

    His sacrifice may not have been as great as the one made by soccer player Julian Velazquez. However, when you consider the fact that Nick Hundley is playing for a San Diego Padres team that is 20 games under .500 and only one loss away from being mathematically eliminated from the playoffs in just the […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 9/6/11 — David Murphy

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/6/11 — David Murphy

    David Murphy may wear the number seven on the back of his jersey, but four was clearly his lucky number during last night’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays.  The Texas Rangers’ right fielder stepped to the plate four times during the game, recording four hits on the night along with four RBIs.   Among […]

    The Phillie Phanatic Makes It Rain…Hot Dogs (Video)

    Treacherous rains were sweeping across areas in Indiana, Michigan and other parts of the United States over the weekend.  It was raining in Philadelphia as well, but rather than having water drops fall from the sky, as is typically the case when it rains, fans at Citizens Bank Park found themselves caught under a storm […]

  • Big Papi’s Slide Comes Up Drastically Short (Video)

    Big Papi’s Slide Comes Up Drastically Short (Video)

    David Ortiz isn’t exactly a threat on the base path.  One look at his 11 career stolen bases in 15 seasons makes that quite evident.  However, you would think the 6’4″, 230-pound designated hitter for the Boston Red Sox would have at least learned how to properly slide into second base at some point in […]
