Baseball

Now The Pie-in-the-Face is Dangerous

About a week ago, we felt inclined to update you on all the weird baseball injuries that have occurred this season, of which there have been an abundance.  Throughout recent history, we’ve seen pitchers who manage to injure themselves swinging a bat and players who injure themselves while celebrating.  The UCLA baseball team failed to…Read More

Kemp Confuses James Loney for Rihanna

A little too close for comfort in my opinion. Yes, that’s James Loney in the front and Matt Kemp in the back during the celebration after Loney’s game-winning walk off home run to beat the Mets in the 13th on Saturday. Kemp had just wrestled Loney to the ground and got caught in that position…Read More

Test Rusty Bumgardner for Roids!

Somehow or another I came across a slow pitch softball game being televised on ESPN Saturday afternoon. The game was between the U.S. and Canada and it was dubbed the “Border War.” No, I didn’t exactly stick around to watch this thing — my attention was fixed more on the Dodgers/Mets game that went extras…Read More

Mark Teixeira Pwns Bruce Chen

I’ve seen cases where batters have had good records against pitchers before but I don’t ever remember seeing anything quite like what Mark Teixeira has done against Bruce Chen. Strange combination, right? I know, but the numbers speak for themselves. Prior to Thursday’s Yankees/Royals game, Mark Teixeira was 7-for-11 against Chen. Six of his seven…Read More

Cubs Should Make Ryne Sandberg Their New Manager

With the announcement of Lou Piniella’s retirement, Chicago Cubs fans have once again picked up their talks as to why former Cub and current manager of the Triple-A affiliate Iowa Cubs, Ryne Sandberg, should be their new manager. And you know what? It makes perfect sense. 1. Sandberg understands the Cubs. As a former player, Sandberg knows…Read More

Bruce Bochy Picks on Acting Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly

Bruce Bochy may not be very good at making decisions, but he’s certainly got an eye for spotting others who make bad ones.  After Joe Torre was ejected due to a hit batsman issue during Wednesday night’s Dodgers-Giants game, Bochy pulled out the rule book and stuffed it directly up acting manager Don Mattingly‘s can….Read More

Carl Crawford Takes One in the Nuts

Any time I played ball I ALWAYS wore a cup. I know it’s uncomfortable and screws you up when you’re running or lifting your leg during a pitching windup, but dealing with that discomfort is much better than the alternative. The problem is some guys don’t understand how bad the alternative is until it happens…Read More

It Was Time for Piniella to Call it Quits

On Tuesday, word leaked that Chicago Cubs skipper Lou Piniella would be retiring at the end of the 2010 season.  Piniella said that he made this decision at this point in the season so that GM Jim Hendry would have ample time to find his replacement. I say it’s about time. Piniella’s four years in…Read More
