The Bad Side of Bryce Harper

We’ve talked about the good side of MLB prospect Bryce Harper, like when he went 6-for-6 with four home runs in a game.

After losing star first baseman Kendry Morales to a broken leg as a result of a rowdy celebration at homeplate following his walkoff grand slam Saturday, the Angels vowed to change their ways. Manager Mike Scioscia said, “It’s going to change the way we celebrate.” Pitcher Jered Weaver shared the sentiment, “Obviously, we’re going to…Read More

Kendry Morales Joins Long List of Athletes Hurt While Celebrating

I don’t know what it is, maybe it’s some sort of schadenfreude type of deal, that makes it so much fun to discuss and categorize injuries. We’ve broken down some of the most ill-timed sports injuries, talked about pitchers who have been hurt batting, and we’ve shared stories of some of the weirdest injuries in…Read More
