Andrew McCutchen Apologizes to Young Fan

Pittsburgh Pirates fan Bryce Robison had one wish for his sixth birthday…have Andrew McCutchen show up to his party. But, since the Pirates had a day game against the Chicago Cubs and the drive from Wrigley Field to Edison’s Entertainment Complex (where the party was held) is nearly five hours, the 2013 National League MVP […]

Would I Like Some Cotton Candy? No Thanks

Not that any of you have gone to a baseball game with me (and if you wanted to take me…I’m totally down), but I never purchase food or drink that has been paraded around the park by a vendor.  Why you ask? This. Yup, that’s cotton candy on the floor of Busch Stadium…allegedly left there by […]

Joe Maddon Shows Off His Charitable Side

Joe Maddon has pulled some pretty interesting stunts out of thin air in his time with the Tampa Bay Rays. But for the last eight weeks, the bespectacled skipper has been doing something pretty cool and it all started with a simple tweet to his more than 172-thousand followers. Send in your charity’s T-shirt & […]

Brandon McCarthy Throws Immaculate Inning

I feel like we’ve been here before. The scene is Tropicana Field and the event…an immaculate inning.  However, this time it wasn’t Tampa Bay Rays reliever Brad Boxberger striking out the side Wednesday night, it was New York Yankees starter Brandon McCarthy doing the deed. In the seventh inning, the righty joined Sandy Koufax, Bob […]

Korean Mayor Gets Egged for Moving Stadium

When the Atlanta Braves announced that they would be leaving Turner Field for Cobb County, Braves were irate.  Matter of fact, they still are. Once the braves move to Cobb county .. I will no longer be a fan — FALCONS 1-1 (@SheScream_Nkosi)

Charles Barkley’s First Pitch Was “Turrible”

Charles Barkley was in Chicago Tuesday night and the NBA Hall of Famer hit Wrigley Field to see the Cubs take on the Cincinnati Reds. Also on the docket, to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.  And, like so many of these things that get mentioned nowadays…it did not go well. Is anyone surprised? Feel […]

Giancarlo Stanton’s Face is Looking Much Better

Last Thursday, Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton was blasted in the face with an 88-mph fastball resulting in “multiple facial fractures”, “dental damage” and a “facial laceration requiring stitches”. Tuesday, the slugger (and National League MVP candidate) took to Instagram to post an update as to how he’s doing.  And, well, considering dude had broken […]

Chris Davis Shows Drugs Are Still An Issue In Baseball

Last season, people wanted to truly believe what they were seeing. Chris Davis, a guy who was an average player at best in his professional career up to the beginning of the 2013 season, slugged 53 home runs for the Baltimore Orioles. He was in the running for the American League MVP, and he was […]

Terry Francona Has Questionable Taste

That sound you heard Saturday night was me losing respect for Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona. Tito: “It probably doesnt speak to my maturity but I really like the Zooperstars. I love them. Harry Canary. Clammy Sosa. I love those guys” — Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian)

Bruce and Brett Bochy Make History

In the 20th round of baseball’s 2010 Amateur Draft, the San Francisco Giants selected Brett Bochy, son of manager Bruce Bochy. Saturday night, the Giants made history against the Los Angeles Dodgers when the elder Bochy called on his son to pitch in the sixth inning. You see, of the handful of instances where a […]

Pete Rose is Selling Shoes Now?

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Pete Rose doing commercials and if a quick search of YouTube and this latest spot from Skechers are any indication, we’ve been robbed of some gems. Now, I’m not going to lie, I’m not even sure who Skechers is trying to sell shoes to (nurses…children?), so I […]

Garth Brooks Takes Batting Practice

Garth Brooks just started his latest world tour…but that didn’t mean the country superstar couldn’t take a break from his unprecedented seven-night, eleven-night stint in Chicago to take in a little batting practice. That’s right, the full-time country crooner-turned-part-time spring training sideshow (he’s played with the San Diego Padres, New York Mets and Kansas City […]


KISS Joins Derek Jeter Lovefest

By the time this season long Derek Jeter lovefest is complete, I’m pretty sure every man and woman across the country will have congratulated the retiring New York Yankees captain. The latest to heap adulation to Jeter…WWE Superstars John Cena and Big Show and recently minted Rock and Roll Hall of Famers KISS. Wait…KISS? Why?!?  […]

Brewers Pitcher Contrite After Hitting Giancarlo Stanton

Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is having, arguably, his best season as a big leaguer and after one errant pitch…it’s likely done. Down 4-0 to the Milwaukee Brewers, the 24-year-old MVP candidate took an 88 mile per hour Mike Fiers fastball to the face and, according to the Miami Herald, suffered “multiple facial fractures”, “dental […]
