  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/12/11 — Dan Haren

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/12/11 — Dan Haren

    The Cleveland Indians have seemed almost unstoppable thus far through the opening two weeks of the MLB season, but they simply couldn’t find an answer to the Angels’ Dan Haren last night.  Haren entered the game with an impressive 1.23 ERA.  We would leave with a remarkable 0.73 ERA, thanks to a complete game on-hit […]

    Times have been tough for the Tamp Bay Rays through the opening two weeks of the 2011 MLB season.  After a successful 2010 campaign that saw them win 96 games before losing in the ALDS to the eventual American League champion Texas Rangers, expectations were high heading into this season, but the Rays have managed […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/10/11 — Jered Weaver

    If Major League Baseball suddenly decided to hand out the AL Cy Young Award only two weeks into the season, their decision probably wouldn’t be a hard one, thanks to the incredible start to the season put together by the Los Angeles Angels’ Jered Weaver. It isn’t often that a single run allowed over eight […]

    Picture Of The Day: Compromise

    You and the wife/girlfriend/fiancee/significant other are sitting down getting ready to enjoy a night on the couch watching Netflix on your laptop when suddenly you realize that both of you want to watch different programs.  You were hoping to catch the Boston Red Sox 2011 season opener against the Texas Rangers, while the woman wants […]

    The Boston Red Sox came into this season with the highest of expectations, but they currently find themselves without a win in their first five games.  As for the Cleveland Indians, they entered the season with little expectations, and are now on the verge of sweeping the Red Sox following an 8-4 victory last night. […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Boring Day In The Outfield Ibanez?

    Picture Of The Day: Boring Day In The Outfield Ibanez?

    One look at the scoreboard would have you thinking that the Philadelphia Phillies’ Raul Ibanez had himself quite the busy day in the outfield last night during a game against the New York Mets.  One look at this image, however, would suggest otherwise. I guess we all have a little Al Bundy in us.

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/5/11 — Yovani Gallardo

    With a batting order that includes the likes of Prince Fielder, Ryan Braun, Corey Hart and Rickie Weeks, the Brewers entered the 2011 season with high expectations, but have failed to live up to them through their first four games.  Heading into yesterday’s meeting with the Atlanta Braves, they were looking to bounce back and […]

    Chris Rock Does A Number On The Mets On The Late Show (Video)

    Late last week Chris Rock appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, and when the two began talking about opening day in the MLB, the conversation quickly turned into a two-minute anti-Mets comedy skit from Chris. Making constant references to the Mets’ financial troubles, Chris Rock fired insult after insult at what he deemed […]

  • What’s MLB Opening Weekend Without Some Fan Fights? (Videos)

    What’s MLB Opening Weekend Without Some Fan Fights? (Videos)

    I’m not sure a single week went by last season without us finding some great fight between fans in the stands at a baseball game.  It is almost as if the game of baseball has developed the following equation: Slow paced game + Lots of beer = Plenty of fights. Well baseball season is back, […]

    Picture Of The Day: Got Roids Roger?

    During my childhood, when I used to look up to baseball players such as Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa, I may have believed that it was the milk which allowed them to hit a ball 400 feets for a home run, or throw it 100 mph for a strikeout.  Now I know better. So let […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/3/11 — Jaime Garcia

    Looking to win their first game of the season and avoid being swept by the San Diego Padres, the St. Louis Cardinals sent right-hander Jaime Garcia to the mound.  He didn’t disappoint, pitching a complete game shutout to lead his club to the 2-0 victory. Garcia got off to a scorching hot start last season, […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 3/31/11 — Clayton Kershaw

    When discussing possible candidates for the 2011 NL Cy Young, the favorites appear to be Roy Halliday, Cliff Lee, and Tim Lincecum but if you are looking for a darkhorse, the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw could be your man.  He showed why during last night’s home opener against the defending World Series champion San Franscico Giants, […]
