    The Detroit Tigers entered the 2012 season not only as heavy favorites to win the AL Central, but also as a popular pick to win the World Series.  However, they entered last night’s game against the Oakland Athletics 3 games back of the White Sox for first in the AL Central, 5.5 games back in the Wild […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/17/12 — Cliff Lee

    The Philadelphia Phillies entered the 2012 MLB season with the highest of expectations, but they have failed to live up to those expectations, as they were one game below the .500 mark heading into last night’s game against the New York Mets.  But despite their struggles, they were still only four games back of the […]

Usually the drunk fans we make fun of actually make it into the game. But […]

    The 9 Longest Postseason Droughts in Major League Baseball

    In case you hadn’t noticed, the 2012 Major League Baseball season is heading toward another exciting conclusion. Sure, it most likely won’t be as thrilling as the conclusion to the 2011 Major League Baseball season. (We’ll probably go another 50 or 60 years before we see anything like that again.)

    Things Got Pretty Heated Between The Cubs And Nats Last Night (Video)

      Things got pretty heated last night between the Cubs and Nationals in Washington, DC, and on two separate occasions the tensions almost escalated into full-on brawls.

    This Day In Sports History (September 7th) — Fay Vincent

      It was on this day in 1992 that Fay Vincent resigned as Commissioner of Major League Baseball.  Vincent’s reign lasted just under three years as he had taken over for Bart Giamatti, who died of a heart attack in September of 1989. Fay Vincent was very much involved in Pete Rose’s lifetime banishment from […]

      There was a terrifying incident during the A’s-Angeles game yesterday in Oakland.
