  • Picture Of The Day: Ever Wonder What “Mets” Stands For?

    Picture Of The Day: Ever Wonder What “Mets” Stands For?

    Have you ever found yourself wondering what a “Met” was?  Most people will tell you that is is a short form for Metropolitan, as in the “New York Metropolitans.”  There was a time when I believed the same thing.  Then I saw this image. Now I believe the term “Mets” is simply an abbreviation for […]

    Francisco Liriano Throws A No-Hitter (Video)

    By no means was it the prettiest no-hitter we have ever seen.  In fact, it may have been one of the ugliest we have witnessed in a while, as the Minnesota Twins’ Francisco Liriano allowed zero hits, but dished out a total of six walks and just two strikeouts against the Chicago White Sox batters.  […]

    Andre Ethier Strikes Out, Swears Like A Sailor (Video)

    It appears as though Andre Ethier has gotten so used to making contact with the baseball throughout the duration of his current 24-game hit streak, that anytime he fails to do so, he becomes infuriated with himself. Ethier had a single and a game-winning home run in extra innings yesterday to lead the Los Angeles […]

    Twenty Percent Of MLB Fans Are Interested In The Andre Ethier Sh*t Streak (Pic)

    The 2011 MLB season is still quite young, but among the most interesting story lines that have garnered the attention of the fans throughout the first month are the Rockies’ and Indians’ incredible starts, Jared Weaver’s 6-0 record, and Andre Ethier’s consistent bowel movements. Last time I checked, I believe my sh*t streak was approaching […]

    Ryan Raburn Gaffe Turns Olivo Fly Ball Into A Homer (Video)

    The Seattle Mariners’ Miguel Olivo hit a home run in the second inning of last night’s game against the Detroit Tigers.  If they handed out assists on home runs in the sport of baseball,  Ryan Raburn would have received the primary assist on this long fly ball, which only had enough distance to make it […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/25/11 — Ian Kennedy

    Heading into yesterday’s game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Philadelphia Phillies were supposed to have a significant advantage in the pitching department as they sent Cliff Lee to the mound.  Lee would go on to allow four earned runs over seven innings, but he was clearly the second best pitcher in this game.  As for […]

    Indians Mascot Slider Gets Dry-Humped By A Fan (Video)

    Mascots always seem to have their way with the fans, but here is one case of a fan having his way with a mascot. I’m not quite sure if mascots are protected under the sexual assault laws in Cleveland, but if they are, this drunk Indians fan could find himself doing some hard time for […]

    Old Lady Catches Home Run Ball, Forced To Throw It Back (Video)

    It was great to see the joy on the face of this elderly female Rangers fan after she caught a home run ball at the game last night.  Unfortunately, that home run came off the bat of an Anaheim Angels player, and as the unwritten rules of Rangers Ballpark state, “no fan is permitted to […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/18/11 — David Price

    The Tampa Bay Rays struggled out of the gate this season, losing their first six games and eight of their first nine, but they have since turned things around, and entered yesterday’s game against the Chicago White Sox with a 6-9 record.  David Price’s season can be described in a much similar manner – seven […]

    Can Someone Explain To Me What Justin Verlander Was Thinking Here? (Video)

    With a runner on first and no outs in the bottom of the fifth inning during Saturday’s game against the Oakland Athletics, the mind of Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander seemed to be thinking “pickoff attempt,” while his body was thinking “pitch to home plate.”  What would ensue appeared to be a hybrid of both, as […]

    Watch Tim Lincecum Pitch In Slow Motion (Video)

    Not many people realize the amount of strain and torque a pitcher puts on his body with each pitch he delivers towards home plate.  It may look simple, but each pitch must be delivered with the proper precision in order to maintain pinpoint accuracy and avoid injuries. Few know this better than two-time Cy Young […]

  • 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 […]
