  • 9 Awesome Baseball Manager Tirades We Will Never Forget

    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

    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 […]

    Cubs Fan Catches Ball In Beer Glass, then Chugs (Video)

    If you live in Chicago and are a Cubs fan, it would make some sense that you would drink. Or start drinking if you have to watch this team. The Bleacher Bums have taken to having some fun and getting creative with their beer gulping. Because, let’s face it — once again this team stinks […]

  • Another MLB Ump Blows Call.  Time For Instant Replay Yet? (Video)

    Another MLB Ump Blows Call. Time For Instant Replay Yet? (Video)

    If Jim Joyce’s blown call during Armando Galarraga’s “almost perfect game” wasn’t enough to get MLB Commissioner Bud Selig to change his mind about instant replay in baseball, perhaps this blown call from last night’s game between the Florida Marlins and the Philadelphia Phillies will be. After blowing a two-run lead in the top of […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/4/10 – Vicente Padilla

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/4/10 – Vicente Padilla

    The San Diego Padres may be the best story in baseball this year. They have the National League’s best record at 62-40, after fielding trade offers for their best player in the offseason. But last night in Los Angeles, their playoff hopes hit another bump in the road in the form of a brilliant pitching […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/3/10 – Ricky Romero

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/3/10 – Ricky Romero

    Last night fans gathered at Yankee Stadium in anticipation of Alex Rodriguez hitting his long awaited 600th home run.  As it turned out, they probably would have been happy with at least a hit.  A-Rod struggled to do anything against Jays’ ace Ricky Romero and the same could be said for the rest of the […]

    Tim Lincecum Gives Girl Her First Kiss (Video)

    That Tim Lincecum is so dreamy. That funky delivery. That cute baby face. Those long locks of hair that probably smell like the chronic. I don’t know, is that what girls think of the San Francisco Giants ace? One girl certainly wanted to meet Lincecum at the ballpark for a special reason: she wanted Timmy […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/2/10- Trevor Cahill

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/2/10- Trevor Cahill

    Despite being a long shot to make the playoffs, the Oakland Athletics have had some amazing things happen to them this season.  Last night was another such thing.  Trevor Cahill is having a phenomenal year for a young pitcher, posting a 2.72 ERA and an 11-4 record.  Last night, however, he did something he hasn’t […]
