    Did The Taylor Swift Curse Strike The Blue Jays? (Infographic)

    Have you heard about the Taylor Swift curse? Because it’s a real thing. They wrote an article about it in The Atalntic and everything. (It’s not The New Yorker, but still.) According to the experts, every time Taylor Swift has played at a baseball stadium on her 1989 world tour, the team that plays in […]

    Astros’ Evan Gattis Clubs Incredible One-Handed Homer (Video)

    The Houston Astros have had a rough couple of weeks. Since August 29 they’ve gone 6-12, including three straight losses to the Texas Rangers this week, and they’ve gone from leading the Rangers by four games to trailing them by one-and-a-half games. After looking like a lock to win the AL West at the trade […]

    Jeff Bagwell Grabs Girlfriend’s Boob on Live TV (Video)

    Jeff Bagwell has been retired from baseball for almost 10 years now, but on Tuesday, while seated behind home plate for the Astros’ home contest against the Red Sox, he showed off those smooth hands that helped him win one Gold Glove award (1994) and three Silver Sluggers (1994, 1997, 1999). So, what did he […]

    Trevor Bauer Reaction to Impressive Evan Gattis Home Run: “Wow” (Video)

    In baseball, coaches always tell pitchers that if they’re going to miss their spots, miss them out of the strike zone. Don’t miss over the plate in the hitter’s wheelhouse. On Wednesday night in Cleveland, that’s exactly what Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer did against the Astros’ Evan Gattis in the top of the first. Aiming […]

    Good God What Is Orbit the Houston Astros Mascot Doing? (GIF)

    So it turns out there are at least two different costumes for Orbit, the Houston Astros mascot. There’s the costume for regular Orbit, a bi-ped baseball-loving alien. Then there’s an Orbit-riding-an-ostrich costume, in which the guy in the suit puts his legs in the ostrich legs while Orbit’s legs dangle off the ostrich’s shoulders. Why […]

    Did This Fan at Minute Maid Park Have a Gun In His Pants? (Video)

    I don’t believe there are any existing hostilities between fans of the Houston Astros and the Baltimore Orioles, but that didn’t stop this Astros fan from packing some heat while attending last night’s game between the two teams at Minute Maid Park.  And when he caught himself a souvenir during the bottom of the sixth inning, he […]

    MLB Hits King Jose Altuve Introduces the Jump Swing (GIF)

    It’s been a long time since the Houston Astros had a genuine star player, but they’ve definitely got one now in second baseman Jose Altuve. He leads all of Major League Baseball in batting average (.345) and total hits (221) this year, and his 6.0 WAR is good for 13th. That being said, even really […]

    Astros Fan Spikes Ceremonial First Pitch (Video)

    The Houston Astros are much better this season than they have been the last two years. That said, they’re still not anything close to good. Their winning percentage of .421 has them on pace to lose 93 games this year. Strange as it may sound, though, that’s actually good news for one Astros fan. Why? […]

    “Bad British Commentary”: MLB Edition (Video)

    “Bad British Commentary” is a recurring feature comedy web series Words In My Mouth from YouTube channel The Whistle. It exists under one singular principle: To imagine what American sports would sound like if they had somewhat clueless and very British commentators, and they’ve just come out with a new Major League Baseball edition. The […]
