  • Nice Throw (GIF)

    Nice Throw (GIF)

    Anyone who has played baseball has heard of the expression “eating the ball.”  It refers to a play where a fielder is better off not making a throw because he has little to no chance of getting the runner out, and therefore would be better off not risking a wild throw that would give the […]

    9 Older Stadiums That Need To Go

    For any huge sports fan, the stadium his or her team plays in, even if brand new, should be a of kind of shrine to legendary accomplishments, players, and memories. Unfortunately, some stadiums aren’t up to the task. Rather than serving as monuments to past achievements or future hopes, a handful of run-down stadiums suck […]

    Roy Oswalt Has A Bulging What? (Video)

    With Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels playing so well, many of you may not have noticed that the fourth member of the Philadelphia Phillies “fantastic four” pitching rotation has been sidelined since June 24th.  That fourth member, Roy Oswalt, has been suffering from a bulging disk in his back, although, a slip of […]

    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

    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

    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 […]

    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.

    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 […]
