    9 Most Memorable Sports Riots

    In light of the stupid Vancouver riots that took place earlier this week, we decided to investigate some of the most memorable riots in history, seeing how fans (and players) can react so violently and dangerously to both winning and losing. While none of these actions are forgivable, some were certainly foreseeable (see entry number […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/14/11 — Justin Verlander

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/14/11 — Justin Verlander

    Talk about Deja Vu!  On May 3rd this year, the Minnesota Twins’ Francisco Liriano pitched the first no-hitter of the season.  Only four days later it was Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers pitching a no-hitter of his own, becoming the second pitcher to do so this season. Fast forward to this past Sunday, when […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/7/11 — Carlos Carrasco

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/7/11 — Carlos Carrasco

    Much of the Cleveland Indians success this season has been the result of some great offense, but with their bats quieting down during a five-game losing streak, it was the pitching of starter Carlos Carassco that helped them break out of their recent slump. Carassco was dominant during last night’s game against the Minnesota Twins, […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/6/11 — Brennan Boesch

    Two of the hottest teams in the Majors hooked up last night in Texas as the Rangers hosted the streaking Detroit Tigers.  With the Cleveland Indians slumping as of late, the Tigers have managed to climb right back into the hunt for top spot in the AL Central, and they gained some more ground last […]

  • Twins’ Alexi Casilla Sees Hail For The First Time (Video)

    Twins’ Alexi Casilla Sees Hail For The First Time (Video)

    Being a member of the Minnesota Twins throughout his five-year Major League Baseball career, second baseman Alexi Casilla hasn’t had to deal with many rain delays, as the Twins have spent most of those seasons playing within the weather-friendly (or at least we thought) confines of the Metrodome. And as far as hail storm delays […]

  • Ryan Raburn Gaffe Turns Olivo Fly Ball Into A Homer (Video)

    Ryan Raburn Gaffe Turns Olivo Fly Ball Into A Homer (Video)

    The Seattle Mariners’ Miguel Olivo hit a home run in the second inning of last night’s game against the Detroit Tigers.  If they handed out assists on home runs in the sport of baseball,  Ryan Raburn would have received the primary assist on this long fly ball, which only had enough distance to make it […]

  • Can Someone Explain To Me What Justin Verlander Was Thinking Here? (Video)

    Can Someone Explain To Me What Justin Verlander Was Thinking Here? (Video)

    With a runner on first and no outs in the bottom of the fifth inning during Saturday’s game against the Oakland Athletics, the mind of Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander seemed to be thinking “pickoff attempt,” while his body was thinking “pitch to home plate.”  What would ensue appeared to be a hybrid of both, as […]

  • What’s MLB Opening Weekend Without Some Fan Fights? (Videos)

    What’s MLB Opening Weekend Without Some Fan Fights? (Videos)

    I’m not sure a single week went by last season without us finding some great fight between fans in the stands at a baseball game.  It is almost as if the game of baseball has developed the following equation: Slow paced game + Lots of beer = Plenty of fights. Well baseball season is back, […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 7/26/10 – Matt Garza

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/26/10 – Matt Garza

    The Tampa Bay Rays have been no-hit 3 times in the past year and 4 times in their short 13 year history.  That is a lot for one of the rarest events in sports to occur against you.  They were due to put on a no-hit performance of their own and they finally got one […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 7/20/10 – Miguel Cabrera

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/20/10 – Miguel Cabrera

    The triple crown in baseball has not been achieved in so many years that it has almost become an unreachable goal.  Year in and year out there are candidates early in the season, but by August they have flamed out.  This year may be different.  Miguel Cabrera is swinging the hottest bat in baseball and […]

  • Umpire Jim Joyce Robs Armando Galarraga Of A Perfect Game

    Umpire Jim Joyce Robs Armando Galarraga Of A Perfect Game

    We have already given him The Stat Line of the Night, but the Major League record books will forever be absent of one particularly worthy name, all because an umpire couldn’t get it right. It was the top of the ninth in a game between the Cleveland Indians and Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park, and […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 6/2/10 – Armando Galarraga

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/2/10 – Armando Galarraga

    Armando Galarraga was just one out away from securing his place in history, one out away from the 21st perfect game in major league baseball. A ground ball was hit to the right side between 1st and 2nd base. It was cleanly fielded by Miguel Cabrera. Galarraga raced to cover first base and received the […]

    Revisiting The Joe Mauer Pitch Tipping

    Total Pro Sports – Earlier in the week we posted a video of Joe Mauer tipping pitches to Jason Cubel during game two of a double-header between the Minnesota Twins and the Detroit Tigers.  The video by Tony Faust, a 28-year-old graphic designer who lives in Maple Grove and is a Twins fan, was discovered […]

    Joe Mauer Will Do Anything To Win, Including Cheating?

    Total Pro Sports – There are not many intriguing playoff races left in the Majors this season.  In fact, most would argue that only one remains and it is between the Detroit Tigers and the Minnesota Twins for top spot in the AL Central.  The two teams met yesterday in a double-header after Monday’s game […]
