    Weekly Fantasy Baseball Update: July 16th – July 22nd

    It was a wild week that saw heat levels rise high enough to end Roy Halladay’s streak of 63 consecutive road games in which he pitched at least 6 innings, and Orlando Hudson narrowly avoided a career ending injury after diving head first into a wall.  Here is your weekly fantasy update. Fantasy Stud of […]

  • Nice Throw (GIF)

    Nice Throw (GIF)

    Anyone who has played baseball has heard of the expression “eating the ball.”  It refers to a play where a fielder is better off not making a throw because he has little to no chance of getting the runner out, and therefore would be better off not risking a wild throw that would give the […]

  • Watch Ozzie Guillen Take A Ball To The Face (Video)

    Watch Ozzie Guillen Take A Ball To The Face (Video)

    Somewhere in America there is a group of umpires sitting in front of a television drinking beers and celebrating as they watch this clip of Ozzie Guillen getting hit in the face with a ball over and over again. With the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the eighth, a foul ball […]

  • D-Backs’ Stephen Drew Suffers A Nasty Ankle Break (Video)

    D-Backs’ Stephen Drew Suffers A Nasty Ankle Break (Video)

    It goes without saying that ankles are not supposed to bend the way Stephen Drew’s did last night. Standing on second base with one out in the bottom of the fourth inning of yesterday’s game between the Diamondbacks and the Brewers, Drew attempted to make it home on a single to left field, but during […]

    Roy Oswalt Has A Bulging What? (Video)

    With Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels playing so well, many of you may not have noticed that the fourth member of the Philadelphia Phillies “fantastic four” pitching rotation has been sidelined since June 24th.  That fourth member, Roy Oswalt, has been suffering from a bulging disk in his back, although, a slip of […]

    Fantasy Baseball Update: The First Half

    The first half of the season is over, and the National League was victorious for the second consecutive year in the annual All-Star Game. Here is a review of some of the players that stood out before the all-star break; some of these players may have been either make-or-break high draft picks for your team, […]

  • Picture Of The Day: He Got His What Pounded?

    Picture Of The Day: He Got His What Pounded?

    It looks like the people at ESPN have their heads stuck in the gutter again.  Yes, the Toronto Blue Jays did light up New York Yankees pitcher Bartolo Colon to the tune of six hits and eight runs in the first inning of Thursday night’s game, but the reference to acts of aggravated sodomy seems […]

  • This Is Just Awkward (Video)

    This Is Just Awkward (Video)

    Meet Kyle. Kyle, who has his very own YouTube channel, is apparently the king of the awkward interview.  I’m not quite sure if he is actually trying to be awkward, or if he simply can’t help himself.  Whatever the case may be, he has certainly used his mumbling voice and strange demeanor to build quite […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/14/11 — Ryan Spilborghs

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/14/11 — Ryan Spilborghs

    Rockies left fielder Ryan Spilborghs has had quite the disappointing first half of the season.  A .276 career hitter, he entered the All-Star break with a disappointing .217 average and only two home runs and 15 RBIs in 75 games.  Looking to turn things around in the second half, he got off to a great […]

    Judge Declares Mistrial In Roger Clemens’ Perjury Case

    Earlier today U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton declared a mistrial in Roger Clemens’ perjury case after jurors were shown evidence questioning the credibility of a key witness in the case. As Walton later said in the courtroom, “I think that a first-year law student would know that you can’t bolster the credibility of one witness […]

  • This Day In Sports History (July 14th) – 1970 MLB All-Star Game

    This Day In Sports History (July 14th) – 1970 MLB All-Star Game

    It was on this day in 1970 that the 41st annual Major League Baseball All-Star Game was played.  The game took place at Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio. The American League would take a three-run lead into the bottom of the ninth and were poised to end their seven-game losing streak.  However, the National Leaguer […]

    The 2011 Pittsburgh Pirates For Dummies

    The Pittsburgh Pirates have been irrelevant since they last won the division title in 1992.  If you asked even the biggest baseball fan to name you all 30 Major League Baseball teams, they would probably only give you 29 and forget that the Pirates even existed.  If you asked someone to name you a player […]

    Picture Of The Day: Chicks Dig The Long Ball

    If there was ever a question as to whether or not chicks actually do “dig the long ball,” the above image should help settle that debate.  But one question still remains: Who has the better view in this case? Would it be the sexy female in the yellow bikini, who had the opportunity to watch […]
