    Fans At Angel Stadium Exchange Beers, Punches In Fight

    Total Pro Sports – It is one of the greatest sins a baseball fan can commit while watching a game.  After paying somewhere around $10 for those overpriced beers they sell at ballgames these days, to just waste it by throwing it on another fan is ludicrous.  If you are going to fight, then fight […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 07/28/09 – Cole Hamels

    Total Pro Sports – With the Philadelphia Phillies in trade talks with the Toronto Blue Jays for their ace Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels went out last night against the Arizona Diamondbacks and reminded the club of the talent on the mound they already possess.  Should a deal be reached between the two teams, a Hamels-Halladay […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 07/27/09 – Josh Willingham

    Total Pro Sports – It took a great night to outperform Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum, who went nine solid innings allowing only two runs on four hits, while striking out a career high fifteen batters.  Washington Nationals right-fielder John Willingham was up to the task, having an incredible night at the plate as he led […]

    Delwyn Young Makes Catch Of The Year, Ump Doesn’t Think So [Video]

    Total Pro Sports – Luckily Tim Lincecum was on the mound for the San Francisco Giants, preventing any sort of increased controversy over this blown call.  Whether the incredible barehanded catch made by the Pittsburgh Pirates’ Delwyn Young will be considered for catch of the year nominations remains in question after second base umpire Dale […]

    Total Pro Sports – Justin Morneau got the Twins’ bats started in the first, and they never looked back from there, beating up on Ervin Sanatana and the Los Angeles Angels bullpen.  When it was all said and done, it was the Twins who would take the important victory by a convincing score of 10-1. […]

    Cubs Fan Yet To Figure Out How To Use A Hat

    While pitchers are throwing perfect games at the south end of Chicago, those guys in the north are still trying to figure out those tricky baseball hats.  We already knew they could be a little crazy at times, and their hygiene may be of question at times, but we never suspected plain stupidity. We are […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 07/23/09 – Mark Buehrle

    Total Pro Sports – This one was a no-brainer.  Yesterday afternoon Mark Buehrle took the mound against the Tampa Bay Rays at U.S. Cellular Field.  Twenty-seven of their players stepped into the batters box to face him and they all went down, one by one as he became only the 18th pitcher in MLB history […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 07/22/09 – Marco Scutaro

    Total Pro Sports – Once again we turn to the Cleveland Indians vs. Toronto Bule Jays series for our Stat Line of the Night.  With the rumor mill in Toronto surrounding Jays ace Roy Halladay, it was another possible piece of trade bait that put on a show last night at the Rogers Centre.  Shortstop […]

  • Since When Did Opening Pitches Become So Political?

    Since When Did Opening Pitches Become So Political?

    Total Pro Sports – Since President Barack Obama threw out the opening pitch for the MLB All-Star game, there seems to have been a lot of fire thrown his way from right-wing conservatives regarding his arm strength.  Fox News was all over the story, and they couldn’t get enough of the fact that the ball […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 07/20/09 – Matt Holliday

    Total Pro Sports – Last night’s battle between the Minnesota Twins and the Oakland Athletics provided a few rather strong statlines.  Justin Mourneau went 3 for 5 with 2 home runs and 7 RBIs, but he was outdone by the A’s Matt Holliday, whose terrific night at the plate was the deciding factor in a […]
