    Derek Holland Is A Man Of Many Impersonations (Video)

    On Sunday night Rangers pitcher Derek Holland was giving us his best impersonation of Cliff Lee from last post-season, as he took to the mound and pitched 8.1 innings of two-hit baseball to lead his club to an important World Series Game 4 victory.  Last night Holland had the night off on the mound, but […]

    Elvis Andrus Was Flashing The Leather Last Night (Video)

    While some great work in the field didn’t earn the Texas Rangers’ Elvis Andrus the “Stat Line of the Night,” it did earn his team the victory in Game 2 of the World Series.  And it will also earn him his very own post, featuring two of his incredible plays with the glove that helped […]

  • This Day In Sports History (October 13th) – Bill Mazeroski

    This Day In Sports History (October 13th) – Bill Mazeroski

    It was on this day in 1960 that the Pittsburgh Pirates defeated the New York Yankees in game seven of the World Series.  Pirates second baseman Bill Mazeroski won the game in the bottom of the ninth inning with a solo home run off of Yankees pitcher Ralph Terry. The Yankees entered the series as […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Never!

    Picture Of The Day: Never!

    Since 1908, fans of the Chicago Cubs have been asking themselves “When,” as in “When will the next World Series come?”  And with each passing year, it seems more and more likely that the answer to that question will be an emphatic “Never!” But as the image above indicates, that clearly won’t stop Cubs fans […]

    Picture Of The Day: Sign Of The Apocalypse?

    The Cubs have defeated the Yankees in the 2011 World Series?  Where have I been for the past seven months?  Who won the Stanley Cup and the NBA Championship?  What else did I miss? Has hell frozen over?  Are pigs flying yet? Perhaps I am dreaming? Or maybe I slipped into a coma last night […]

    1950s Civil Defense Movie Predicts World Series Game 2 Score (Video)

    After creating a huge buzz last week, the Charlie Chaplin time traveler mystery was quickly debunked as the supposed cell phone turned out to be nothing more than an old hearing aid.  Fair enough!  But how do all these experts expect to explain the latest case of “time traveler sightings”, which was discovered during a […]

  • Giants Fans Brawl Inside McDonalds (Video)

    Giants Fans Brawl Inside McDonalds (Video)

    I’m no detective, but I think I can figure out what caused this brawl to erupt at a San Francisco McDonalds following the Giants victory. A bunch of drunk fans were too cheap to buy some over-priced food at AT&T Park, so immediately following the game they all rushed over to the nearest McDonalds.  Unfortunately, […]

  • Sweet October: The 9 Most Memorable World Series Moments

    Sweet October: The 9 Most Memorable World Series Moments

    Rather than consisting of a constant flow of players moving up and down a basketball court or hockey rink, baseball’s roots are situational, with the memorable moments being defined not so much by the actions themselves as they are by the anticipation of the moment and the moments leading up to it. This has long […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 10/19/10 — Matt Cain

    The Stat Line of the Night — 10/19/10 — Matt Cain

    Matt Cain is not exactly known as an ace, but he’s been a solid pitcher on the Giants staff for a few years now.  Last night he had to battle Cole Hamels to break a 1-1 tie in the NLCS.  Generally the winner of Game 3 is in the driver’s seat for most playoff series, […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 10/12/10 — Cliff Lee

    The Stat Line of the Night — 10/12/10 — Cliff Lee

    Cliff Lee has been one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball over the last few years, if not the most dominant, and he went out and showed it once again in a deciding Game 5 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.  The Rangers acquired Lee for just this type of stage, so they could […]

    It’s A Bird, It’s A Plane, It’s A Derek Jeter Fan!!!

    The only thing better than watching your favorite home town sports team win their league’s championship is going to the parade a few days later.  With thousands of fans in attendance looking to cheer on their newly found heroes, and some even willing to put on a show, these types of events are simply a […]

  • 2009 World Series Championship Hats Make Strange Statement

    2009 World Series Championship Hats Make Strange Statement

    The hats worn by Yankee players last night were…interesting to say the least.  Those hats, created for the Yankees to honor their World Series Championship, had an interesting symbol on the back.  Before we start, if it were me wearing strange merchandise after the Series, it would be those Phillies World Series t-shirts that were […]
