    9 Cities That Deserve the Devil Rays More Than Tampa Bay

    Two nights ago only 12,000 people turned out to see one of baseball’s best teams take the field with a chance to clinch a playoff spot. Last night they clinched in front of 17,000.

    Phillies Fan Picks A Winner, Eats It (Video)

    As a parent, sometimes it seems like no matter how hard you try it is simply impossible to keep your child’s finger out of their nose.  You can tell them a million times, “Don’t pick your nose Kelly, else it is going to start bleeding”, but the second you turn your back, or leave her […]

    Tyler Colvin Impaled By Broken Bat (Video)

    In baseball, standing 90 feet from home plate is supposed to be a good thing, but it turned out to be a nightmare for the Cubs’ Tyler Colvin.  Sitting safely at third base, Colvin was awaiting a hit from teammate Welington Castillo to bring him home, but he surely was not expecting what would happen […]

    It is no secret that Sidney Crosby is the best hockey player in Pittsburgh, but he may also be the best baseball player in the city as well.  Especially when you consider the fact that his toughest competition comes from the players on the Pittsburgh Pirates.

    Picture Of The Day: Where Did His Neck Go?

    Great work by the photographer.  He somehow managed to capture this image at the perfect moment. But what exactly is going on here?  From the looks of it, it appears as though the player with the base in his hands has just smacked his teammate so hard on the head that it literally knocked his […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/31/10 – Jose Bautista

    Those poor unfortunate Jays.  Had they not been placed in the AL East division, they may actually have a shot at the post season.  But that is not the case, and now they find themselves in fourth place in their division with a 69-63 record.  That’s right.  Six games above .500 and it is only […]
