    Watch Stephen Strasburg vs Bryce Harper For The First Time Ever (Video)

    Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg are probably the two most highly-touted MLB draft picks of the past decade, but because both of these first-overall selections were taken by the Washington Nationals (Strasburg in ’09 and Harper in ’10), and they’ve remained with the Nats their entire careers, we’ve never had the privilege of seeing them face […]

    When the Boston Red Sox signed Pablo Sandoval to a five-year, $95-million contract in the offseason, they knew they weren’t getting one of Major League Baseball’s slimmest third basemen.  But even they had to be surprised when they saw just how fat Pablo Sandoval actually was when he arrived in Florida for Red Sox spring […]

    A-Rod Apology to Everyone Comes Via Hand-Written Letter (Pic)

    Alex Rodriguez issued an apology today to Major League Baseball, the New York Yankees, the Steinbrenners, the MLB Players Association, and most importantly, the fans.  It is not a surprising move from the much-maligned millionaire ballplayer.  What is surprising is the way the apology was issued, via a hand-written letter that was released by MLB.com.

    Lots of people have stuck Yasiel Puig with the distraction label. And while it’s a somewhat fair criticism (he seems to out-Manny Manny Ramirez sometimes), I think there are bigger Puig issues. Namely, his bat throwing. He’s almost killed like seven of his Dodger teammates at one time or another with his bat “flip”—I use […]

    9 Ways To Improve MLB

    Baseball has been enjoying record revenue recently, but during that time, it’s seemingly been losing popularity among the masses. The short-sighted would say, “Who cares? Profit is profit.” But such an anomaly isn’t sustainable. There are a few things wrong in the world of baseball. Some are subjective, and some… aren’t. Those things just need […]

    Most Sports Records Are Meant to Be Broken, But Not These Ones

    You should probably never say “never” in sports, but there are some cases where the term’s use seems more than reasonable—and in some cases, it’s even necessary.  That certainly applies to some of the records that have been set in various sports.  After all, you can’t possibly believe some hockey player will someday come along and […]

    The Royals Partied with Their Fans Last Night in a Kansas City Bar (Video)

    The Royals partied last night in a Kansas City bar after sweeping the Tigers 3-0 in the division series. While some teams are prone to renting out a club to enjoy by themselves, the Royals partied with their fans, just storming into a place called McFadden’s, located in KC. A place called “McFadden’s” doesn’t exactly […]

    KC Police Ask Citizens to Hold Off on Crimes Until Royals Game Ends

    The KC police really wanted to watch the end of last night’s one-game AL Wild Card playoff against the Oakland A’s. While the police normally ask that citizens abide by the law, they REALLY wanted people to be good and safe until the Royals game was over. The KC police sent out a Tweet asking people […]

    9 Things We Are Not Going to Miss About Derek Jeter

    There are plenty of things that baseball fans everywhere are going to miss about Derek Jeter. This isn’t a list seeking to discredit him. From 1998 to 2000 the guy put together three of the best offensive seasons we’ve ever seen by a shortstop,  and his professionalism was unmatched. That said, Jeter might also be the most overrated player […]
