  • The Wally Backman Blowup, Part 2 (Video)

    The Wally Backman Blowup, Part 2 (Video)

    Apparently Wally Backman had a few more f-bombs to drop following his hilarious mic’d up tirade that earned him an ejection the other day.  Rather than the umpire, this time it was the opposing team’s announcer on the receiving end. It looks like the people at Playing For Peanuts may be on to something here.  […]

  • Does It Get Any Better Than A Mic’d Up Coach Being Ejected? (Video)

    Does It Get Any Better Than A Mic’d Up Coach Being Ejected? (Video)

    This video is nothing short of amazing!  And just what exactly makes it so amazing?  I’m not sure where to start! How about we begin with the fact that the ejected coach, Wally Backman, coincidentally had a mic on him, which allows us to hear each and every “FU” and “BS” with perfect clarity.  Then […]

  • Pete Rose’s Corked Bat?

    Pete Rose’s Corked Bat?

    Is this an x-ray of a corked bat once used by the great Pete Rose? According to Deadspin it is “a Mizuno PR4192 bat, commissioned by Pete Rose specifically for his 1985 chase of baseball’s all-time hits record.” As you know, corking your bat in baseball is highly illegal, per rule 6.06(d), so this could […]

  • Albert Pujols: Baseball’s Nice Guy

    Albert Pujols: Baseball’s Nice Guy

    The list of jerks throughout pro sports is a lengthy one, and too often we read about them instead of the good guys in sports. But today we have a nice story about one of baseball’s nice guys, slugging St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols. Pujols recently hit his 14th homerun of the season […]

  • Home Run Trot Disrupted By Bench-Clearing Brawl

    Home Run Trot Disrupted By Bench-Clearing Brawl

    A walk-off home run trot is supposed to be one of the greatest feelings a baseball player can experience, but throughout the Memorial Day weekend they seemed to be more painful than anything.  First it was Kendry Morales sustaining a broken leg after being mobbed by teammates during a walk-off trot against the Seattle Mariners […]

  • Picture Of The Day – Baseball Optical Illusion

    Picture Of The Day – Baseball Optical Illusion

    It’s pretty funny to see a dog look himself, long and hard, in the mirror and then tilt his head to the side because he’s not sure if it’s him or another dog, whose heiny he should be sniffing.  Well, it’s about ten times funnier seeing a confused left fielder looking into the outfield wall […]

  • Wheel Him Outta Here! (Video)

    Wheel Him Outta Here! (Video)

    I can’t help but think that this may be just about the greatest exit from a baseball game ever.  Forget about all those guys who want to throw beer and punches at one another before having security take them by the arm and usher them out.  This guy knows how to exit a party in […]

  • Define Irony: Tampa Bay Rays’ Player Stung By Actual Stingray

    Define Irony: Tampa Bay Rays’ Player Stung By Actual Stingray

    Should we consider this to be just another case of “When Mascots Attack”? In a rather ironic twist of fate, Tampa Bay Rays’ second baseman Sean Rodriguez was taking a stroll down the beach when he was stung by an actual stingray.  Rodriguez was with his two-year-old daughter, Sofia, behind their rental condo in Redington […]

  • Stephen Strasburg Baseball Card Inexplicably Going for Over $10,000 on Ebay

    Stephen Strasburg Baseball Card Inexplicably Going for Over $10,000 on Ebay

    The hype surrounding Washington Nationals’ pitcher, Stephen Strasburg, is inordinate.  He’s never pitched an inning in the big leagues and he’s already being touted as the next Nolan Ryan on steroids (not really, as far as I know, but I say that for hyperbole). Well, it appears one Ebay user is trying to take advantage […]

  • Nyjer Morgan Drops Fly Ball, Throws Temper (Video)

    Nyjer Morgan Drops Fly Ball, Throws Temper (Video)

    It’s always fun seeing an athletic outfielder dead sprint to the track and rob a home run ball or extra base hit.  Even in failing to make the grab, they are one of the more entertaining plays in baseball due to the natural suspense as to whether or not a hitter’s glory will wind up […]

  • Fans Brawl at U.S. Cellular Field (video)

    Fans Brawl at U.S. Cellular Field (video)

    At the end of last week a pretty intense bleacher brawl broke out at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago during the middle of a White Sox/LA Angels game.  A group of dudes were talking jive with the fans behind them, and getting beer poured on them, as they were leaving.  Within the group there looks […]

  • Celebrating Dallas Braden’s Perfect Game With A Tattoo

    Celebrating Dallas Braden’s Perfect Game With A Tattoo

    Okay, so let’s get one thing straight.  A tattoo paying tribute to Bobby Orr’s Stanley Cup game winning goal in 1970 is cool.  A tattoo paying tribute to Dallas Braden’s perfect game in May of 2010 is not. Sure, a perfect game in baseball is quite the accomplishment, but is it tattoo worthy?  I wouldn’t […]

  • Picture Of The Day – Nice Jersey

    Picture Of The Day – Nice Jersey

    Personalized jerseys are becoming quite the phenomenon in the sports fan world.  ”He Hate Me” in the now defunct XFL would be so proud of his trend-setting ways.  Okay, it probably started before him, but I feel like sports jerseys with a personal name or something original are popping up more now than ever.  When […]
