    Bobby Valentine Picks Jose Ortiz to Win The Derby (Video)

    It’s not unusual for ESPN talking heads to make boneheaded comments. In fact, it’s probably the norm. But we were taken by surprise when former Mets manager Bobby Valentine made a huge goof during ESPN’s telecast of the 2010 Home Run Derby. So yeah, that’s DAVID Ortiz, not Jose. You know, all those Hispanic guys […]

    “Oh My God! Ichiro Touched Me!”

    Did I miss something here?  Since when did Mariners’ right fielder Ichiro Suzuki inherit a Johnny Depp-like status among the ladies?  And who would have thought that taking an elbow to the face from him would be such a joyous occasion for one lucky female? Perhaps Ichiro is America’s latest sex symbol.  The man who […]

    The common reaction for anyone who sees a foul ball headed their way, whether they are seated against the railing in the upper deck or in the front row by the field, is to catch it.  That is exactly what this dad did.  Unfortunately, it meant taking away a catch from Phillies’ right fielder Jayson […]

    Houston Astros flamethrower Roy Oswalt has been the subject of trade rumors lately, and after last night’s dominant performance his market value just went up.

    Picture Of The Day: What Kind Of A Discount Is That?

    It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what city this sign can be found in.  You simply have to love the respect that Bostonians have for their hometown Red Sox fans.  Twenty percent off?  Sounds like a great deal!  As for the Yankee fans, I wonder how much “F-Off” will save them on […]

    Big Bully Pancakes Kid Into Fence For A Home Run Ball

    Last night was not a good night to be a baseball fan at the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, where it seemed like if you weren’t falling 30 feet from the upper deck while reaching for a foul ball, then you were getting drilled from behind into a fence by some big jerk as you race […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 7/4/10 – Drew Stubbs

    It was the fourth of July, and while the fireworks were not expected to fly until later on in the night, the Cincinnati Reds had other ideas as they would put on an air show of their own.  And leading the charge would be center fielder Drew Stubbs. On a day when the Reds combined […]

    Yankees Fan On Cell Phone Takes Ball To The Face

    We have seen baseball fans make some extraordinary catches at the ball park before, whether it is with a pizza box, or with an ice cream in their hand.  As for this Yankees fan, his attempt to catch a ground-rule double with his face was anything but extraordinary.  In fact, it was downright embarrassing. To […]

    Longoria And Upton Have A Heated Exchange In Rays’ Dugout

    Would You Pay $113,500 For This Stephen Strasburg Card?

    He fanned 14 batters in his major league debut.  He has been setting records for the most strikeouts to begin a career with every passing game. But still, when we saw a Stephen Strasburg card being sold on Ebay for over $10,000, we described it as simply “inexplicable.” So if that is “inexplicable”, then I […]
