  • Kenny Powers Gives Us The Best Pitcher’s Entrance Ever! (Video)

    Kenny Powers Gives Us The Best Pitcher’s Entrance Ever! (Video)

    Rick Derringer’s “Real American” begins to blare over the loud speaker.  Fireworks light the night sky in the outfield.  Suddenly, Kenny Powers emerges from a tunnel of red, white and blue balloons.  And with the American flag draped down his back, the controversial pitcher begins to flash a sequence of signs to the crowd, from […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Is That A Bat, Or A…

    Picture Of The Day: Is That A Bat, Or A…

    So here you have your Red Sox cap, your baseball, and your…WTF??? A part of me would like to think that the figure in the top right corner of this cake is a baseball bat, but when was the last time you have seen a skin-colored baseball bat with that many veins?  Either Brian really […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 10/28/10 – Matt Cain

    The Stat Line of the Night – 10/28/10 – Matt Cain

    Ron Washington may have the best — or creepiest — Halloween costume for this year, but his Rangers are in a 2-0 hole in the World Series after Matt Cain smoked them in game 2 last night. Just call Matt Cain the new “Mr. October”. Cain shut down the potent Rangers offense, allowing just 4 […]

  • Another Look At The Roy Halladay-Pat Burrell Stare Down (Video)

    Another Look At The Roy Halladay-Pat Burrell Stare Down (Video)

    With the Philadelphia Phillies on the brink of elimination, Roy Halladay was a man possessed on the mound last night in Game 5 of the NLCS.  However, Pat Burrell was not going to back down. Halladay is a pitcher that often intimidates batters with his pitches, but last night he was looking to strike fear […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 10/20/10 – Buster Posey

    The Stat Line of the Night – 10/20/10 – Buster Posey

    Raise your hand if in March you had the San Francisco Giants representing the National League in the World Series. Didn’t think so. Yet, here they are, now just one more victory away from making it back to the big dance. And they wouldn’t be anywhere close without Buster Posey. The 23-year-old catcher has provided […]

  • Another Look At The Douchebag Yankees Fan From Last Night (GIF)

    Another Look At The Douchebag Yankees Fan From Last Night (GIF)

    I must give credit where credit is due.  This douchebag did make a nice grab to prevent Nelson Cruz from robbing Robinson Cano of a home run in the second inning of last night’s ALCS game between the New York Yankees and the Texas Rangers.  But what’s with all the hand waving and stupid faces, […]

    Happy 25th Anniversary: The 25 Best NES Sports Games

    Yesterday, Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) turned 25, which makes everyone over 30 feel really, really old.

While modern games have rendered many of these titles unplayable due to their […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 10/18/10 – Cliff Lee

    The Stat Line of the Night – 10/18/10 – Cliff Lee

    The nickname “Mr. October” may currently belong to Reggie Jackson, however, should Cliff Lee continues his run of playoff dominance, that may have to change. Rangers’ manager Ron Washington ordered his starting rotation so that Lee would pitch Game 3 and give his team the opportunity to steal a game in New York, and that […]

  • Phillies Fans Celebrate Game 2 Victory With Some Fisticuffs (Video)

    Phillies Fans Celebrate Game 2 Victory With Some Fisticuffs (Video)

    The Philadelphia Phillies’ Roy Oswalt seemed to be his usual self last night as he delivered eight innings of three-hit, one-run ball, on route to a 6-1 Game 2 NLCS victory over the Giants.  As for the Philly faithful, they appeared to be their usual selves as well, throwing fists at one another whether their […]

  • How About Showing Some Effort Next Time? (Video)

    How About Showing Some Effort Next Time? (Video)

    Here is a look at the laziest, most uninterested fan you will ever see at a ballgame. This effort may be even poorer than the one we saw from the Camden Yards security a few months ago.  All he had to do was extend his arm a little more, or maybe even lift his ass […]

    Jays’ Players Sport Mustaches In Cito Gaston’s Farewell Game

    In 1982, Cito Gaston joined the Toronto Blue Jays coaching staff as a hitting coach.  In 1989 he was named the club’s manager and only three years later he would begin a run of back-to-back World Series Championship seasons with the Jays.  Those two league titles would be the last the city would see from […]
