  • The 2011 Pittsburgh Pirates For Dummies

    The 2011 Pittsburgh Pirates For Dummies

    The Pittsburgh Pirates have been irrelevant since they last won the division title in 1992.  If you asked even the biggest baseball fan to name you all 30 Major League Baseball teams, they would probably only give you 29 and forget that the Pirates even existed.  If you asked someone to name you a player […]

    Picture Of The Day: Chicks Dig The Long Ball

    If there was ever a question as to whether or not chicks actually do “dig the long ball,” the above image should help settle that debate.  But one question still remains: Who has the better view in this case? Would it be the sexy female in the yellow bikini, who had the opportunity to watch […]

    9 Most Memorable All-Star Game Moments

    The 2011 Major League Baseball All-Star Game goes down tonight at Chase Field in Phoenix. Most people will probably get tired of Tim McCarver’s nonsensical rambling after 3 innings and flip over to America’s Got Talent. However, I will be watching the whole game, and not just because I can’t stand Sharon Osborn. No, I’ll […]

    Those baseball fans who have grown tired of watching a bunch of grown men in tight pants scratching themselves on the field were offered a pleasant change of scenery last night during the MLB’s Celebrity All-Stat Game at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona. Yes, there were still some grown men in tight pants taking the […]

    Weekly Fantasy Baseball Update: July 2nd – July 8th

    The past week contained some pretty strange events, including the tragic death of a fan at a Rangers game, Albert Pujols returning from the Disabled List a month early, and highly touted 19 year-old prospect Mike Trout’s promotion in Los Angeles following an injury to outfielder Peter Bourjos. Fantasy Stud of the Week – Michael […]

    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 […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/7/11 — Travis Hafner

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/7/11 — Travis Hafner

    Isn’t it amazing how one swing of the bat can change everything in a baseball game? The Toronto Blue Jays went into the bottom of the ninth inning last night with a 4-0 lead over the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field.  Most would think that the game would be wrapped up at that point, but […]

    9 Most Overrated Players In the MLB Today

    As the season makes its annual All-Star Game pit stop, it’s as good a time as any to review the popularity of players and exactly how deserving they are of their reputation. In assembling this list, it’s pretty clear that the fundamental problem with overrating players is simply that fans are stuck in the past. […]

    Jose Bautista Has His Very Own Music Video

    After recording 54 home runs during the 2010 MLB season, many baseball critics figured Jose Bautista would be nothing more than a one-year wonder.  That hasn’t been the case as the Toronto Blue Jays’ outfielder is currently leading the Majors in home runs (28), on-base percentage (.467) and slugging percentage (.687), while his .331 batting […]

    Giants Fan Gets Run Over By Kayak In McCovey Cove (Video)

    The baseball souvenir free-for-all continues! But unlike what we have seen in previous weeks, this time the battle did not take place on the dry lands of the stadium bleachers.  Instead, it occurred beyond the outfield fence at AT&T Park, on the wet waters of McCovey Cove. Following a Pablo Sandoval blast, two kayakers squared […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/28/11 — Cliff Lee

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/28/11 — Cliff Lee

    Most Major League pitchers will not record three complete-game shutouts throughout the course of an entire season.  Cliff Lee had the opportunity to throw his third in a row last night when he took the mound against the Boston Red Sox.  Accomplishing such a feat is no easy task against the league’s most potent offense, […]

    Here Is 4 Minutes Of Jose Canseco Snapping On An Umpire (Video)

    It may have been about ten years since Jose Canseco last swung a bat in the Majors, but that clearly hasn’t stopped him from making headlines in the world of sports.  In fact, some might even argue that Canseco has made more headlines away from the game than he did during his 16 year MLB […]

    Cirque du Soliel Performer Throws Out Opening Pitch (Video)

    When an opening pitch earns a spot on the nightly highlight package, nine times out of ten it is for all the wrong reasons.  But when we are treated to that other one-out-of-ten, it can be quite remarkable.  Take last night’s game between the Kansas City Royals and the San Diego Padres at Petco Park, […]

    One-Armed Veteran Catches Foul Ball With His Hat (Video)

    Had a person with two arms made the following catch, it wouldn’t have even been mentioned during the live broadcast of Friday’s game between the Colorado Rockies and the New York Yankees.  So should we be impressed by the fact that the man who did make the grab has only one arm?  Yes, we should.  […]
