Evan Longoria and B.J. Upton Get Into it

It’s always a shame anytime we post an item about teammates getting into a dust-up. Much like Hanley Ramirez who had to be reprimanded for being lazy going after a ball, Rays third baseman Evan Longoria confronted center fielder B.J. Upton who coasted for a ball hit in the left-center gap on Sunday. Rusty Ryal…Read More

Guillen’s Dinner Date With Zambrano Could be Good for the Cubs

On Friday, the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox met for round two of the Crosstown Classic. The big story wasn’t the White Sox extending their win streak to 10 games — it was Carlos Zambrano’s meltdown in the dugout after giving up four runs in the first inning. The incident landed Zambrano an…Read More

Edwin Jackson Gets No-Hitter, Pitch Counts Be Damned

This baseball season has been entirely about pitching dominance. We’ve had two perfect games (and a third taken away by a bad call) and now two no-hitters. Ubaldo Jimenez no-hit the Braves, Roy Halladay tossed a perfect game against the Marlins, Dallas Braden threw a perfect game against the Rays, and now Edwin Jackson has…Read More

Last year, Big Z was ejected for bumping an umpire and beating up a gatorade cooler. This year, Zambrano went ape…Read More

Rob Dibble’s Ichiro Ass Tattoo

On Thursday’s PM edition of Hot Clicks at SI, Jimmy Traina linked to a story about Nationals broadcasters Rob Dibble and Ray Knight getting into a disagreement on air. I thought the disagreement (regarding Stephen Strasburg’s two-strike pitches on Wednesday) was rather petty and exacerbated by Dibs. While that story was only semi-entertaining, it reminded…Read More

Ron Santo Missing Time Isn’t a Bad Thing

The one thing Chicago Cubs fans seem to love about listening to their team on the radio is former player Ron Santo. Santo is known for being eccentric, to say the least, when it comes to his version of a color commentary. But these days it’s getting a little more noticeable that his health issues…Read More

Jerry Seinfeld Does Not Approve of Lady Gaga’s Behavior

When Lady Gaga decided to run amuck at the New York Mets game after photographers turned around to take pictures of her, the Citi Field staff kindly escorted her away from her field box seats to a more private luxury box.  I had no idea that the luxury box she was seated in — which…Read More

Warning: This May Give You Goosebumps

I’m a tad late getting to this, and many of you have probably heard it by now.  However, I wanted to share this little story with any of our readers who haven’t heard it.  It’s one of those that will pull at your heart strings and maybe even give you a little perspective. Last week,…Read More
