    Yanks-Royals Game Features ‘Coke-Cain’ Matchup: Twitter Goes Nuts

    Bryce Harper vs. Jordan Zimmermann, Miguel Cabrera vs. Max Scherzer, and Noah Syndergaard vs. Adrian Gonzalez.  Those were just a few of the marquee batter vs. pitcher match-ups that Wednesday night had to offer. My favorite?  I’m going to have to go with the one featured during the 8th inning of the Royals-Yankees game, when Lorenzo […]

    On Wednesday, Washington Nationals right-hander Max Scherzer tied an MLB record with 20 strikeouts.  And to make the accomplishment that much sweeter, he did it against his former team, the Detroit Tigers.   Max Scherzer is the 5th player with 20 strikeouts in a game, joining an elite club. pic.twitter.com/98N271VoI3 — SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) May 12, 2016 […]

    Aroldis Chapman made his Yankees debut on Monday after serving a 30-game suspension for violating MLB’s domestic violence policy. (Remember?

    Jon Lester Throws Glove to First For The Out…Again (Video)

    Jon Lester it terrible at throwing the baseball to first base, but he’s pretty darn good at tossing his glove there. He pulled off the latter last season when a ground ball got caught up in his glove. And he ran into the same problem today, during the 2nd inning of the Cubs’ 6-2 victory over […]

    Cardinals Pitcher Adam Wainwright Smashes 408-Foot Upper Decker (Video)

    Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright is off to a rough start on the mound. In six starts this season he’s 2-3 with an unsightly 6.68 ERA, a 1.57 WHIP, and a 3:2 strikeout-to-walk ratio. And things didn’t start much better for him on Monday night against the Phillies, either, as Wainwright spotted the visitors a three-run […]

    Kate Upton and Justin Verlander Are Engaged :(

    Bad news for all you delusional heterosexual men out there who have been holding out hope of one day running into Kate Upton at, like, an airport or something, and using your chivalry and folksy charm to win her heart. The buxom Sports Illustrated swimsuit model is officially off the market. Upton has been dating […]
