Hawk Harrelson Refers to Pitcher as “Oriental”

Ken “Hawk” Harrelson is the worst, right? On back to back days, the longtime Chicago White Sox broadcaster referred to Boston Red Sox pitcher Junichi Tazawa as, wait for it, “oriental”.  And the best/worst part about Harrelson dropping the “O-bomb” on Wednesday (he’d end up doing the exact same thing Thursday) is that it’s almost […]


St. Louis Superman Banned from Ballpark?

St. Louis is a quick 1600 mile drive from the Las Vegas Strip, but it seems like they have similar problems. Less than two months after he broke up a fight outside Busch Stadium, Charlee Chartrand St. Louis Superman is, seemingly, no longer welcome at the ballpark.  This…according to the faux Man of Steel’s Facebook page.

Accused Murderer Has Unfortunate Tattoo(s)

It’s not all that uncommon to show your allegiance to your favorite sports team via tattoo…people do it all the time. But on your face?  That’s an entirely different story. And before you ask “what kind of guy gets a tattoo on his face, much less ALL the tattoos on his face?” …I’ll tell you.  […]

Home Run Derby King to Get Championship Belt

Typically, I’m not a big home run derby kind of guy, but this year…I’m going to change my stance.  Kinda. No, I’m not talking about Major League Baseball’s annual slugfest, I’m talking about the one that’s going to reward it’s winner with this magnificent bastard. The Triple-A All-Star Game’s Home Run Derby participants will taking […]

Minor Leaguer Has Best Day Ever

Sunday, Andy Burns hit a walk-off two-run home run to dead center to bat the Trenton Thunder 9-7 in extra innings. But that was just the beginning for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats third baseman. Not long after hitting the game winner, Burns skipped town to be with his girlfriend, Kate Schmeling, who just so […]

Minor League Park Engulfed by Water

The San Francisco Giants and Pittsburgh Pirates have shaped the identity of their ballpark based on its proximity to water. The Quad City River Bandits think that’s adorable. You see, the single-A affiliate of the Houston Astros play their home games at Modern Woodmen Park in Davenport, Iowa, which just happens to be a stones […]

Samardz, er, Shark Makes Debut for A’s

“Samardzija” isn’t one of those names that just rolls off the tongue. So, suffice it to say, the Coliseum crowd had a little bit of difficulty welcoming their new pitcher when he made his debut Sunday afternoon against the Toronto Blue Jays. The Oakland A’s acquired Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel from the Chicago […]

Pitcher’s Wife Happy He Was Dealt

The New York Yankees picked up Brandon McCarthy from the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday to help out their injured pitching staff and no one could have been happier than the pitcher’s wife Amanda.

Big Papi Skips Game to Attend Daughter’s Graduation

When the Boston Red Sox took the field for the first game of a double header against the Baltimore Orioles Saturday…a familiar face was absent from the team’s lineup. Sure, David Ortiz was around for the nightcap, but where was he for the early tilt?  Was he hurt?  Was he on some sort of double […]

Johnny Damon is Itching to Return

To say Johnny Damon is modest would be an understatement. Prior to the 2014 season, the former outfielder announced to the world that he was available to play and/or manage…but only at the Major League level.  Now, the 40-year-old would like the world to know that he’s better than half of the guys out there […]

Familiar Face Nabs Rookie’s First Home Run

While Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy were busy playing amateur dentist Wednesday night…Boston Red Sox prospect Mookie Betts was doing work. In the fifth inning, the 21-year-old went deep for his first career home run and, incidentally, his first career hit at Fenway Park. But here’s where the story gets interesting. Chris Large, the guy […]

Yasiel Puig Interviewed on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Wednesday night, Guillermo from “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” sat down with Los Angeles Dodgers stud Yasiel Puig for a “Yas-clusivo” interview. The only question I have…what took so long to make this happen?

Chipper Jones Supports 19-Year-Old Hunter

Man, some people simply do not like Kendall Jones. Don’t know who Kendall Jones is?  She’s the 19-year-old who, in the past couple of days has ignited a firestorm with some pictures she posted online of her recent trip to Africa. And, no, these aren’t your garden variety vacation pictures.  You see, the Texas Tech […]
