    A-Rod Heads the List of 2015 MLB All-Star Snubs

    On Sunday MLB revealed which players were elected starters for the 2015 MLB All-Star Game. On Monday they released the player selections, manager selections, and candidates for the “final player” vote. As always, there are plenty of questionable selections and obvious snubs.

    Chicago Cubs pitcher Jon Lester had gone without a hit in the first 66 regular season at-bats of his Major League career—which easily broke former Padres pitcher Joey Hamilton’s previous record of 57 at-bats without a hit.

    Okay, so maybe this fan didn’t actually throw a pitch, but he did mimic one after making his way onto the field during Sunday’s game between the Mariners and Angels at Angel Stadium. Have a look: A ball would have helped, but it was still a lot better than 50 Cent’s first pitch.  And the […]

    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 […]

    For his second consecutive start, Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Marco Estrada took a no-hitter into the eighth inning.  And Estrada was actually pitching a perfect game during today’s no-hit bid against the Tampa Bay Rays.   But with a full count to the Rays’ David DeJesus during the first at bat in the bottom of the eighth, Estrada was […]
