    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/5/11 — Yovani Gallardo

    With a batting order that includes the likes of Prince Fielder, Ryan Braun, Corey Hart and Rickie Weeks, the Brewers entered the 2011 season with high expectations, but have failed to live up to them through their first four games.  Heading into yesterday’s meeting with the Atlanta Braves, they were looking to bounce back and […]

    Cup Stacking On Sleeping Drunk Men Can Be Seen At Yankee Stadium (Video)

    As much as I hate the Yankees, I must say that their offense looked awfully impressive during their opening weekend series against the Detroit Tigers, as they managed to put a total of 23 runs on the board in three games.  Usually that would be enough to entertain most baseball fans, but apparently that wasn’t […]

    The 9 Most Iconic Baseball Cards You Wish You Still Had (1985 – 1995)

    Allow me to preemptively strike any criticisms that come part and parcel with trying to hone an entire beloved industry into 9 examples. Your favorite player may not be on this list. My favorite player isn’t on this list either. However, during about a decade of collecting baseball cards (1986-1994, give or take), some cards […]

    Chris Rock Does A Number On The Mets On The Late Show (Video)

    Late last week Chris Rock appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, and when the two began talking about opening day in the MLB, the conversation quickly turned into a two-minute anti-Mets comedy skit from Chris. Making constant references to the Mets’ financial troubles, Chris Rock fired insult after insult at what he deemed […]

  • What’s MLB Opening Weekend Without Some Fan Fights? (Videos)

    What’s MLB Opening Weekend Without Some Fan Fights? (Videos)

    I’m not sure a single week went by last season without us finding some great fight between fans in the stands at a baseball game.  It is almost as if the game of baseball has developed the following equation: Slow paced game + Lots of beer = Plenty of fights. Well baseball season is back, […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Got Roids Roger?

    Picture Of The Day: Got Roids Roger?

    During my childhood, when I used to look up to baseball players such as Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa, I may have believed that it was the milk which allowed them to hit a ball 400 feets for a home run, or throw it 100 mph for a strikeout.  Now I know better. So let […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/3/11 — Jaime Garcia

    Looking to win their first game of the season and avoid being swept by the San Diego Padres, the St. Louis Cardinals sent right-hander Jaime Garcia to the mound.  He didn’t disappoint, pitching a complete game shutout to lead his club to the 2-0 victory. Garcia got off to a scorching hot start last season, […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 3/31/11 — Clayton Kershaw

    When discussing possible candidates for the 2011 NL Cy Young, the favorites appear to be Roy Halliday, Cliff Lee, and Tim Lincecum but if you are looking for a darkhorse, the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw could be your man.  He showed why during last night’s home opener against the defending World Series champion San Franscico Giants, […]

    9 Best Cities To Watch An MLB Home Opener

    Opening day is something special, even for the most casual of baseball fans. It serves to let us know that winter is over, and we can shed our layers and get back outside. For the more die-hard fans, it represents the optimism of a new season and a look at the team you’ll be spending […]

    Picture Of The Day: Sign Of The Apocalypse?

    The Cubs have defeated the Yankees in the 2011 World Series?  Where have I been for the past seven months?  Who won the Stanley Cup and the NBA Championship?  What else did I miss? Has hell frozen over?  Are pigs flying yet? Perhaps I am dreaming? Or maybe I slipped into a coma last night […]

  • 15 Hottest MLB Babes

    15 Hottest MLB Babes

    Baseball is rarely regarded as a “sexy” sport. That’s probably due to its close associations with both Kevin Costner and chewing tobacco. But it’s a bum rap, regardless. There are hot MLB fans and fan bases, no doubt, but it’s hardly a universal phenomenon. For instance, would you believe that out of the below entries, […]

    The Phillies Hooters Ball Girls Are Back, And Looking Fantastic (Video)

    Last year we were introduced to the Philadelphia Phillies’ interesting use of Hooters girls during their spring training games in order to help increase ticket sales.  That plan must have worked out well, as they gave yet another lovely lady the day off from delivering chicken wings to drunken men so that she could try […]

    I Am Now A Mets Fan Thanks To Tehmeena Afzal (Video)

    I guess this is supposed to be some sort of promotional video for the New York Mets’ upcoming season, and if that is the case, they’ve got my attention! It can be tough competing in the same market as the New York Yankees, but it appears as though the Mets have added a secret weapon […]

    With the games being rather meaningless this time of year, spring training is the perfect time for any baseball player to try something new, whether it is a glove, a bat, a pitching delivery or a pre-game routine.  As for Aaron Rowand, he has been waiting the entire winter to show off his new batting […]
