    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/10/12 — Giants’ All-Stars

    Whichever team ends up representing the National League in this year’s World Series will probably want to thank the San Francisco Giants.  After all, it was the solid performance from three of the Giants’ all-star representatives that helped the National League earn the 8-0 victory during last night’s midsummer classic, thus earning the NL World […]

    The NHL All-Star Game may seem like a hostility-free affair between the best players in the league, but that isn’t always the case.  Take yesterday’s game, for example, as Team Alfredsson’s Scott Hartnell celebrated a Henrik Sedin goal by telling Team Chara’s Dion Phaneuf to “suck it.”  Thankfully, Hartnell was mic’d up for CBC’s broadcast […]

    Despite risking injury, Jose Bautista should be applauded for his diving catch in the right field corner during last night’s Mid-Summer Classic.  Fans pay big bucks to see the best players in baseball give it their all at the All-Star Game, so the players should feel as though they owe it to them to give […]

    When Jose Bautista was selected as a starter for the 2011 MLB All-Star Game, many thought he would be providing a highlight or two with his bat.  After all, he does lead the league with an astounding 31 home runs, one year after belting a league-high 54.  However, Joey Bats showed baseball fans everywhere why […]

    5 Most Stunning Post All-Star Game Collapses

    Thank God for the All-Star game. Without it, what would baseball use to track mid-season trends, stats, and standings? Without the All-Star game, we would be forced to say things like “at the halfway point,” or “midway through the season.” That would seriously be hell on Earth. The All-Star break can also be seen as […]

    First it was the Knicks.  Then the Nets.  Then the Lakers. Then the Bulls.

    Now where was this move during the NHL All-Star Skills Competition? I simply don’t get it.  Every year the NHL seems to give their Breakaway Challenge a shot and every year the participants seem to disappoint us with their lack of creativity.  After all, how many times can we watch a player scoop the puck […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 7/13/10 — Brian McCann

    The National League has not won an All-Star game in 13 years.  The American League has dominated the mid-summer classic since 1997 with one tie and 12 wins.  This year would change all that in a pitcher’s duel for the ages.  One big hit would be all that it would take to win the game, […]
