Roy Halladay as Jamie Moyer Wins the Internet

It appears that the recently retired Roy Halladay has decided to leave the ugly Christmas sweaters to his former Philadelphia Phillies teammate Jonathan Papelbon.  Instead, the two-time Cy Young Award winner opted to hit an 80s-themed holiday party dressed as Jamie Moyer.  Yup, Halladay threw on a Chicago Cubs uniform (remember, Moyer debuted in 1986) […]

Countdown to Cooperstown: Ben Zobrist

Can you imagine the outrage if Ben Zobrist was elected to the Hall of Fame? The riots that would break out in the friendly hamlet of Cooperstown, New York? Thousands of fans would storm the town, raiding the quaint baseball souvenir shops, demanding justice. Sportswriters would call for boycotts and fill their column space with […]

Rare Mike Trout Relic Unearthed

It appears a New Jersey homeowner won't have to shell out close to a hundred bucks to get a life-sized image of Millville native Mike Trout on his wall. Well…almost. According to MLB.com, the drawing below was found behind some boxes in a house once owned by Jeff and Debbie Trout…Mike's parents.  And, yeah, what […]

Countdown to Cooperstown: Buck Showalter

Since 1936, the first year of the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame, only 17 managers have been elected to join baseball’s sacred club. In fact, since the turn of the millennium, only one manager received election, and that was Sparky Anderson way back in 2000. Of course, that all changes this upcoming July when […]

First Look: Million Dollar Arm

Hey, you know that story about the two javelin throwers-turned-cricket players from India that, after taking part in a reality show, came to the States, tried out for and got signed by the Pittsburgh Pirates? If so, you probably won't need to see "Million Dollar Arm"…the film version of that very same story.  Unless you're a fan of Jon […]

Merry Christmas From The Hall of Very Good™

It's been nearly two months since the Boston Red Sox disposed of the St. Louis Cardinals and wrapped up their third World Series title in the last ten years. But it wasn't until the last couple of weeks that Major League Baseball seemed to get into the holiday spirit.  Fenway went frozen, both Jonathan Papelbon […]

Countdown to Cooperstown: Manny Machado

While many stat geeks have spent the last two seasons drooling over young Major Leaguers Mike Trout and Bryce Harper, they may have been overlooking a budding star that could end up having a better long-term chance of earning baseball immortality as a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame. Since the minute Manny Machado […]

Prince Fielder’s Wife Was Sleeping Around?

Oh, rumor mill…you're adorable. You know that Prince Fielder trade to the Texas Rangers that took everyone by surprise?  Well, as it turns out, it might have been four months in the making and done to help restore some order in the clubhouse. According to Diamond Hoggers, the Detroit Tigers unloaded Fielder because, get this, […]

Shin-Soo Choo’s Kids Are Already Rangers Fans

Wow.  That was fast. Hours after it was announced that the Texas Rangers inked Shin-Soo Choo to a seven-year, $130 million deal…pictures of the outfielder's three kids rocking some fresh new gear hit the interwebs. Now, I know what you're thinking "three kids in Rangers jerseys, what's the big deal?" This. See what I mean? […]

The Phillies Ruined It All

Dear Santa… I know we're just a few days away from your big day, but if I could get just one thing for Christmas…it would be the 3:32 back that I spent watching the "What's The Phanatic Say?" video. What's that you ask?  Well, as it turns out, it's the Philadelphia Phillies hackneyed attempt at […]

Countdown to Cooperstown: Tim Hudson

When Tim Hudson’s career ends, his Hall of Fame case is going to be an interesting one. Nothing about Hudson really jumps out at you from a historical perspective. His 3.44 ERA is good, but not great. His 1896 strikeouts aren’t the stuff of legend. Even Hudson’s 205 wins are nothing to write home about. […]
