    Cards’ Jon Jay Makes Amazing Circus Catch At Minute Maid Park (Video)

    Last year, the St. Louis Cardinals traded away their former “center fielder of the future,” Colby Rasmus, because they thought they had a very capable replacement in Jon Jay. How has Jay repaid their faith in him? By playing great defense and hitting .299/.358/.412 over his 1,155 career at-bats. In fact, so far this season, […]

    The Top 20 Active MLB Career Strikeout Leaders

    If you follow Major League Baseball, then you’re probably aware that we’re in the midst of a golden era for pitching. Or at least, that’s what the experts say. However, there’s always two ways to look at any statistical phenomenon. And the other day, as I was watching part of a Chicago White Sox Game—which […]

    It Was “Star Trek Night” At The Trop in Tampa Last Night (Video)

    Earlier this season, the Tampa Bay Rays and nine other teams around Major League Baseball teamed up with Stand Up 2 Cancer and LucasFilms to hold “Star Wars Nights” at the ballpark. I have no idea if these events actually raised any money for cancer research, but we did get to see Darth Vader on […]

    Vernon Wells Didn’t Make The Catch, But Boy Did He Try (Video)

    Poor Vernon Wells. I mean that figuratively, of course, because in actuality he’s ridiculously filthy rich. But we make fun of the guy any time the subject of terrible sports contracts comes up because he gets paid an ungodly amount of money to play pretty bad baseball. However, you have to hand it to Vernon: […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/18/12 — Miguel Cabrera

    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 […]

  • This Day In Sports History (September 14th) – Toronto Blue Jays

    This Day In Sports History (September 14th) – Toronto Blue Jays

        It was on this day in 1987 that the Toronto Blue Jays hit a Major League record 10 home runs in a single game.  The Jays beat the Baltimore Orioles 18-3 in a game played at Toronto’s Exhibition Stadium. Catcher Ernie Whitt would lead the charge with three home runs, while both George […]

  • Drunk Phillies Fan Faceplants Into Asphalt (Video)

    Drunk Phillies Fan Faceplants Into Asphalt (Video)

      Everyone enjoys making fun of drunken sports fans. They perform funny dances, they pass out in their seats, they fall down, they run out onto the field (and get tackled by security), and, of course, they wet their pants. Usually the drunk fans we make fun of actually make it into the game. But […]

  • The 9 Longest Postseason Droughts in Major League Baseball

    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.) But it is looking like […]
