    Picture Of The Day: The Phillies’ Four Loko

    I can see it already!  Philadelphia Phillies fans lining up at the concession stands inside Citizens Bank Park waiting to get their hands on a can of Four Loko with one of their team’s four aces featured on it.  And for those who are having trouble deciding which flavor to choose, why not go with […]

  • 9 Overlooked Players Who Should be in the MLB Hall of Fame

    9 Overlooked Players Who Should be in the MLB Hall of Fame

    Baseball, being so rich in nostalgia and steeped in tradition, holds sacred the Hall of Fame in a manner that no other sport does. Consequently, any snubs at the hand of the induction committee are seen, justifiably, as slights against a given player’s legacy. However, there are only so many spots that can be handed […]

    Kenny Powers Gives Us The Best Pitcher’s Entrance Ever! (Video)

    Rick Derringer’s “Real American” begins to blare over the loud speaker.  Fireworks light the night sky in the outfield.  Suddenly, Kenny Powers emerges from a tunnel of red, white and blue balloons.  And with the American flag draped down his back, the controversial pitcher begins to flash a sequence of signs to the crowd, from […]

    Picture Of The Day: Is That A Bat, Or A…

    So here you have your Red Sox cap, your baseball, and your…WTF??? A part of me would like to think that the figure in the top right corner of this cake is a baseball bat, but when was the last time you have seen a skin-colored baseball bat with that many veins?  Either Brian really […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 10/28/10 – Matt Cain

    Ron Washington may have the best — or creepiest — Halloween costume for this year, but his Rangers are in a 2-0 hole in the World Series after Matt Cain smoked them in game 2 last night. Just call Matt Cain the new “Mr. October”. Cain shut down the potent Rangers offense, allowing just 4 […]

    Another Look At The Roy Halladay-Pat Burrell Stare Down (Video)

    With the Philadelphia Phillies on the brink of elimination, Roy Halladay was a man possessed on the mound last night in Game 5 of the NLCS.  However, Pat Burrell was not going to back down. Halladay is a pitcher that often intimidates batters with his pitches, but last night he was looking to strike fear […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 10/20/10 – Buster Posey

    Raise your hand if in March you had the San Francisco Giants representing the National League in the World Series. Didn’t think so. Yet, here they are, now just one more victory away from making it back to the big dance. And they wouldn’t be anywhere close without Buster Posey. The 23-year-old catcher has provided […]

    Another Look At The Douchebag Yankees Fan From Last Night (GIF)

    I must give credit where credit is due.  This douchebag did make a nice grab to prevent Nelson Cruz from robbing Robinson Cano of a home run in the second inning of last night’s ALCS game between the New York Yankees and the Texas Rangers.  But what’s with all the hand waving and stupid faces, […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 10/18/10 – Cliff Lee

    The nickname “Mr. October” may currently belong to Reggie Jackson, however, should Cliff Lee continues his run of playoff dominance, that may have to change. Rangers’ manager Ron Washington ordered his starting rotation so that Lee would pitch Game 3 and give his team the opportunity to steal a game in New York, and that […]

    Phillies Fans Celebrate Game 2 Victory With Some Fisticuffs (Video)

    The Philadelphia Phillies’ Roy Oswalt seemed to be his usual self last night as he delivered eight innings of three-hit, one-run ball, on route to a 6-1 Game 2 NLCS victory over the Giants.  As for the Philly faithful, they appeared to be their usual selves as well, throwing fists at one another whether their […]
