  • Dad Taken Out by a Line Drive from His Son in the Front Yard (Video)

    Dad Taken Out by a Line Drive from His Son in the Front Yard (Video)

    If your kid is an up-and-coming baseball talent, and you’re tasked with pitching to him from a close distance, maybe don’t give him a metal bad. A nice Louisville Slugger will suffice. Honor tradition. This dad failed to do that, and at the risk of over-explaining this clip, he got taken out pretty hard by […]

  • ARod Home Run? ARod Home Run! (Video)

    ARod Home Run? ARod Home Run! (Video)

    It happened earlier today during a Grapefruit League game against the hated Boston Red Sox, Alex Rodriguez hit a solo home run to left-center field, cutting the Yankees’ deficit to 5-3 in the bottom of the fourth inning.  It was his first home run in Spring Training, and I’m sure the New York tabloids will find […]

    Royals-Angels Game Spring Training Game Interrupted by…BEES! (Video)

    During spring training, it’s pretty much a given that the most interesting things won’t actually be baseball-related. We’ve got 162 baseball games we’re supposed to care about. We can’t start pretending to be interested just yet. So, we look to other aspects of spring training to focus on. Like killer, bloodthirsty bees. These monsters infiltrated […]

    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 […]
