Derek Jeter Gets Presidential Sendoff

Derek Jeter has gotten the royal sendoff at each of the big league stadiums he’s visited so far this season. But Wednesday night in Arlington…it was Presidential. After Texas Rangers legends Michael Young and Ivan Rodriguez presented Jeter with a $10,000 check to go toward his Turn 2 Foundation, the New York Yankees captain was […]

Vin Scully to Return for 66th Season

I said it last year at this time and I’ll gladly say it again…those sounds you hear echoing through Chavez Ravine are the dulcet tones of one Vin Scully announcing he’ll be returning next season for his 66th season in the Los Angeles Dodgers broadcast booth. The team made the announcement Tuesday night during their […]

Melky Cabrera Breaks Windshield with Home Run

The Toronto Blue Jays responded to the 14-1 shellacking they received at the hands of the Boston Red Sox last Monday by flipping the score and offering up a whipping of their own. Leading the charge was Melky Cabrera who, not only hit home runs from each side of the plate, but, also, sent one […]

John Rocker Responds to Critics

Saturday, John Rocker broke the internet when he offered up the next best thing to being on the stage during the Hall of Fame Induction…a night of free drinks! And, it should have been no surprise to anyone (especially Rocker), that the media ate up like the circus it was.  That said…here’s how the former […]

Former Brewers Prospect Gets Final Rose on The Bachelorette

In the 2002 MLB Draft, Josh Murray was selected in the second round (48th overall) by the Milwaukee Brewers. Now, almost a dozen years later, the former Minor League infielder-turned-financial advisor received the final rose from Andi Dorfman on this year’s installment of “The Bachelorette”. “When I decided to give up my first love – […]

Brewers Bobbleheads Show Up…Closer Still MIA

By now, you’ve heard about the nightmare that is the saga of the 15,000 misspelled Troy Tulowitzki jerseys that led the Colorado Rockies had to cancel Saturday’s giveaway, right? Well…the Milwaukee Brewers were almost in a similar bind. As of late Saturday night, the team had yet to receive the Jim Henderson bobbleheads they were […]

John Rocker Shows Up in Cooperstown… “Survivor” Up Next

Hall of Fame weekend brings out a ton of former big leaguers.  From Hall of Famers to Pete Rose…it’s a veritable smorgasbord of All-Stars from years past. This year, however, is a little different.  Probably thinking there’s a way to cash in on the glut of Atlanta Braves fans making the trip north…there’s also John […]

Benches Clear Twice During Minor League Game

Things got a little out of hand Friday night between the Double-A affiliates of the Chicago White Sox and Miami Marlins. Up 5-1 in the ninth inning, Birmingham Barons infielder Jeremy Farrell crossed homeplate and bumped into Jacksonville Suns pitcher Matt Ramsey, who was backing up the play.  According to Suns manager Andy Barkett, it […]

Zack Greinke Makes History (Again)

When striking out the side just isn’t enough to get you out of an inning, you do what Zack Greinke did Friday night…you strike out a fourth batter. In the third inning of their win over the San Francisco Giants, the Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher struck out Hector Sanchez, Tim Lincecum, Hunter Pence and Gregor […]

Barry Bonds Turns 50

Thursday, home run king Barry Bonds turned 50. And, that night, the seven-time National League MVP celebrated the milestone with friends and family. Joining the recently slimmed down slugger…Rich Aurilia (who played with Bonds from 1995-2003 and in 2007), his son Nikolai and Randy Winn (2005-2007), my guess is that Jeff Kent skipped the affair.

Like Her Dad, Josie Canseco Loves Social Media

Confession time.  I’m like a lot of you…I’ve poked some fun at Jose Canseco online.  But, as time has passed, I’ve come to realize something. Unlike a number of former big leaguers out there on the Twitters (looking your way John Rocker and Chipper Jones), I think the former American League MVP actually gets it.  I mean, dude […]

Looking Ahead to The Hall of Fame Class of 2015

What’s interesting about the Hall of Fame Class of 2015 is the same thing that got us excited about the Class of 2014…there are some definite no-brainers, shoe-ins if you will. Truth is, I don’t know if the Hall of Fame has had back-to-back-to-back years (yup, already looking your way, 2016!) with so many quality, […]

A Look Back at July 24, 1983

In 1955, team owners were in a bind…they were losing too much money on baseballs that were stained and smudged with the pine tar being used on bats. To combat that loss, baseball implemented a rule…MLB Rule 1.10(c). It was a simple one really. Basically, you can treat your bat with anything to help “improve […]

Former All-Star Charged with Assault

Chuck Knoblauch was arrested Wednesday night…accused of assaulting his ex-wife. The former Major Leaguer was charged with misdemeanor assault on a family member after allegedly grabbing his ex-wife Cheri by the arm, smashing her head into a wall and throwing a humidifier at her before she ran from the room.  According to police, Cheri had a large bruise […]
