    Yasiel Puig Reminds Us That His Arm Is a Cannon (GIF)

    In case anyone forgot over the course of a long offseason, Yasiel Puig has a cannon for an arm. He reminded us on Sunday. Cutoff man?  Puig doesn’t care for cutoff men.  Watch him launch a dart from right field to third base to keep the runners from advancing during a Cactus League game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San […]

    On Monday night the sports world received word of one of the most shocking sports retirements we’ve seen in a long time.

    Earlier this year Tommy Lasorda joined Instagram, and it’s a good thing he did.  Why?  Because the Hall of Famer’s decision to join the social media website means we can now witness Tommy Lasorda dancing and singing to DJ Snake & Lil’ Jon‘s “Turn Down For What.” Prepare to be amazed by the moves on the former […]

    ARod Home Run? ARod Home Run! (Video)

    It happened earlier today during a Grapefruit League game against the hated Boston Red Sox, Alex Rodriguez hit a solo home run to left-center field, cutting the Yankees’ deficit to 5-3 in the bottom of the fourth inning.  It was his first home run in Spring Training, and I’m sure the New York tabloids will find […]

    During spring training, it’s pretty much a given that the most interesting things won’t actually be baseball-related. We’ve got 162 baseball games we’re supposed to care about.

    Watch Stephen Strasburg vs Bryce Harper For The First Time Ever (Video)
