  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/31/10 – Jose Bautista

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/31/10 – Jose Bautista

    Those poor unfortunate Jays.  Had they not been placed in the AL East division, they may actually have a shot at the post season.  But that is not the case, and now they find themselves in fourth place in their division with a 69-63 record.  That’s right.  Six games above .500 and it is only […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/29/10 – Cole Hamels

    Sitting two games back of the Atlanta Braves in the NL East, and holding a 1.5 game lead over the San Francisco Giants in the wild card race, wins have never been more important for the Philadelphia Phillies.  Earning a victory yesterday afternoon would not be an easy task against the NL West leading San […]

  • Female Fans Throw Beer, Fight At The Yankee Game

    Female Fans Throw Beer, Fight At The Yankee Game

    I have never been a fan of drunken baseball fans throwing beer on each other, but when it leads to a fight between some sexy females, I think I can look past the fact that some perfectly good alcohol was wasted. I’m not sure what these ladies were arguing about, but I do know that […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/25/10 – Joey Votto

    With the St. Louis Cardinals slumping as of late, the Cincinnati Reds were looking to take advantage and build upon their lead in the NL Central.  After the Cards fell to the Pirates, the Reds had the opportunity to increase their division lead to 3.5 games, and that is exactly what they did, thanks to […]

  • A’s Ball Boy Kevin Fennel Gets The Date He Was Looking For

    A’s Ball Boy Kevin Fennel Gets The Date He Was Looking For

    When Oakland A’s ball boy Kevin Fennell showed up to his stool along the third baseline at the Coliseum, he had one thing on his mind: Get the digits of the beautiful redhead in the second row.  And after sharing foul ball after foul ball with the lovely Jacki Lynch, he finally got what he […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Even for a Cardinals Fan, this is tough to see

    Picture Of The Day: Even for a Cardinals Fan, this is tough to see

    Here’s a pic of Lou Piniella crying during his final game as the Chicago Cubs manager, and also his final game in a big league uniform ever. But contrary to popular belief, those are tears of joy. He just quit THE CUBS people! He’s stoked. Why?  THEY SUCK. They haven’t won a world series since […]

    9 Awesome Baseball Manager Tirades We Will Never Forget

    As Lou Piniella lays down his spikes this week and retires from the Cubs, he gives us a legacy to look back on unlike any other active manager. While much of his legacy takes the form of wins, losses, and pennants, there is another quality about Lou that we mustn’t ever forget: the ability to […]

    Check Out This Phillies Fan’s Amazing One-Handed Grab

    Perhaps Sara Saco could use a man like this! Even with a tray of goodies in one hand, this Phillies fan was able to maintain his composure and make a one-handed grab on a Jayson Werth foul ball during last night’s game between the Phils and the Giants.  Now that is how you pick up […]

  • Picture Of The Day: There’s A Praying Mantis On Your Head!

    Picture Of The Day: There’s A Praying Mantis On Your Head!

    After witnessing several errors in judgment throughout the 2010 season, it has been tough to stand by the umpires of Major League Baseball.  However, they seem to have the support on at least one well-known creature from the animal kingdom. This praying mantis seems to have found himself a front row seat.  Although, if he […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/15/10 – Kevin Slowey

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/15/10 – Kevin Slowey

    Had it not been for an elbow injury sustained earlier in the month, Minnesota Twins’ pitcher Kevin Slowey may have very well been the sixth hurler this season to record a no-hitter (or seventh, if you wish to include Armando Galarraga’s should-be perfect game).  Unfortunately it was not meant to be.  Slowey finished the seventh […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/11/10 – Adam Wainwright

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/11/10 – Adam Wainwright

    The St. Louis Cardinals had the brooms ready in anticipation of a sweep of the Reds in Cincy. The way Adam Wainwright was pitching, the Cardinal hitters could have used them as bats and still won the ballgame. Wainwright was brilliant as usual in shutting down the upstart Reds and the Cards completed the three-game […]

  • Kid Breaks Arm, Toughs It Out During On-Field Contest In Anaheim

    Kid Breaks Arm, Toughs It Out During On-Field Contest In Anaheim

    Meet Beecher Halladay (no relation to Roy).  Beecher (what kind of a name is that anyways?) was the lucky unlucky winner of a promotional contest titled “Steal Third Base” at Angel Stadium on July 30th.  All he had to do was run down the third baseline, steal third base, and bring it to the lovely […]

    Reds And Cards Exchange Kicks And Punches In Bench-Clearing Brawl (Video)

    Think baseball is boring because of its lack of physicality?  Sounds like you should start watching more games between the Cincinnati Reds and the St. Louis Cardinals.  If there was any doubt as to how these two teams felt about each other, those questions were answered last night when they engaged in a heated brawl […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/10/10 – Felix Hernandez

    Throughout the 2010 MLB season, it has often appeared as though the only chance the Seattle Mariners have to win ball games is if their pitching staff can shut out their opponent.  With a league worst .236 batting average and 369 runs for, to say that the Mariners’ bats have been sleeping all year would […]
