    Kate Upton Shines At The MLB Celebrity All-Star Game (Gallery)

    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

    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.  […]

    Picture Of The Day: How Japan Celebrate Baseball Victories

    I have never been a big fan of fireworks.  Just a bunch of over-priced sparkles flying into the air, making a bunch of noise, then disappearing while leaving behind an terrible odor.  Seems like a rather dumb way to celebrate a home run or a victory for any Major League Baseball team. Japanese baseball, on […]

    D-Backs Fan Wrestles Foul Ball From A Lovely Blond (Video)

    Sometimes I just don’t get baseball fans.  I mean, sure, everyone wants to catch Barry Bonds’ 756th career home run ball, or his 71st home run ball from the 2001 season.  That’s understandable, seeing as how you can flip that thing for thousands of dollars on eBay.  But what is the big deal about catching […]
