    A frightening scene unfolded at Progressive Field tonight, when Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco was struck in the face by a line drive off the bat of White Sox outfielder Melky Cabrera.

    We have our first real “catch of the year” nominee, and it’s a dandy. It comes from the glove of White Sox center fielder Adam Eaton, who robbed the Royals’ Mike Moustakas of extra bases with a ridiculous diving grab on a ball that was hit over his head. Check it out: Your browser does […]

    You probably already heard about Will Ferrell‘s intentions to play all 10 positions for 10 different MLB teams during Cactus League play in Arizona.  On Thursday, he did it.  Kinda. I’ll explain what I mean by “Kinda” at the end.  For now, I’ll take you on a quick journey through #FerrellTakesTheField. It started at Hohokam Stadium in […]

    Female White Sox Fan Saves Baby From Flying Bat (GIF)

    I should probably clarify that headline.  I’m talking about a baseball bat, although the idea of a baby being saved from a giant nocturnal rat-bird at a White Sox game is pretty fun to think about. What really happened is nice too, though. It happened during the Memorial Day game between the White Sox and […]

    In life, we’re constantly bombarded with messages from people who want to tell us what to do, and how to do it. But it’s rare when a real-life Goofus steps in to show us how not to do something. That’s why we should all be thankful for the guy at a recent spring game between […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 6/10/2013 — Adam Dunn

    Heading into last night’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays, Adam Dunn had only 34 hits in 206 at bats on the season (good enough for a .165 batting average), but of those 34 hits, 14 of them were home runs.  That means that while Dunn wasn’t hitting the ball all that often, he was […]
