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

    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 […]

  • The Oakland A’s Are Pulling A Beer Scam Of Their Own (Video)

    The Oakland A’s Are Pulling A Beer Scam Of Their Own (Video)

    Earlier this year we provided you with video evidence that beer vendors at Qwest Field in Seattle had been selling Seahawks fans two differently-shaped cups of beer with the same volume for two different prices.  Thankfully, they were able to prove that rather than ripping off those who had bought the bigger 20 oz. beers, […]

    Kurt Suzuki Joins The “I Can Jump Out Of A Pool” Club (Video)

    Boy has the ability to jump out of a pool lost its luster over the past year.  It was amazing the first time we saw New York Jets’ defensive lineman Jarron Gilbert perform this feat during his days with San Jose State; and it was still impressive when former UFC champion B.J. Penn executed it […]

    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 […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/24/10 – Gio Gonzalez

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/24/10 – Gio Gonzalez

    The Oakland Athletics have had some of the best pitching in all of baseball this year.  Unfortunately their offense has been unable to come through when its needed most, or come through at all for that matter.  Last night was a different story.  With Gio Gonzalez on the mound dealing, the A’s bats finally came […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/27/10 – Cliff Lee

    The Texas Rangers look like they can make the playoffs and be a contender in the American League for the first time in many years, and an active front office went out and acquired Cliff Lee to try to help make that happen.  Unfortunately, Lee has not gotten the run support he expected from the […]

  • Celebrating Dallas Braden’s Perfect Game With A Tattoo

    Celebrating Dallas Braden’s Perfect Game With A Tattoo

    Okay, so let’s get one thing straight.  A tattoo paying tribute to Bobby Orr’s Stanley Cup game winning goal in 1970 is cool.  A tattoo paying tribute to Dallas Braden’s perfect game in May of 2010 is not. Sure, a perfect game in baseball is quite the accomplishment, but is it tattoo worthy?  I wouldn’t […]

    Yankees Turn First Triple Play Since 1968

    The Yankees have done a lot of things since 1968, which includes seven World Series titles, 11 American League pennants, and 16 East Division titles, but they have failed to turn a triple play over the past 42 years.  Yesterday afternoon they put an end to that drought, completing one of baseball’s most difficult plays […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 09/16/09 – Trevor Cahill

    Total Pro Sports – It was not too loo ago when the Texas Rangers found themselves in a heated battle atop the AL wild card standings with the Boston Red Sox.  Things have changed since then as Boston is in the midst of a seven-game winning streak, while the Rangers went into last night’s game […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 08/27/09 – Trevor Cahill

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 08/27/09 – Trevor Cahill

    Total Pro Sports – It is a tough task pitching to the Los Angeles Angels, who hold the Major League’s best batting average.  Trevor Cahill of the Oakland Athletics was faced with that assignment and came out of it much better than most likely expected. The A’s righty was on target all night and that […]

  • Fan Gets Tased By Cops At Athletics Game

    Fan Gets Tased By Cops At Athletics Game

    Total Pro Sports – Tasers at a baseball game may not be such a bad idea.  I can’t think of a better way to control the fans in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.  Maybe the Athletics and Oakland police are on to something here. During a ball game against the Texas Rangers last […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 07/20/09 – Matt Holliday

    Total Pro Sports – Last night’s battle between the Minnesota Twins and the Oakland Athletics provided a few rather strong statlines.  Justin Mourneau went 3 for 5 with 2 home runs and 7 RBIs, but he was outdone by the A’s Matt Holliday, whose terrific night at the plate was the deciding factor in a […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 07/06/09 – Jarrod Washburn

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 07/06/09 – Jarrod Washburn

    Total Pro Sports – It was a tough decision on this one.  Two pitchers threw complete game shutouts.  Both allowing minimal hits.  One with more strikeouts, but the other with less hits and no walks allowed.  So who did we take?  Seattle’s Jarrod Washburn was our man for last night, but barely over Oakland pitcher […]
