Tim Tebow Can Mash Too?

Even though most of the top athletes in the country are multi-talented, they mostly concentrate on one sport these days. Gone are the times of Deion Sanders and Bo Jackson where a guy would pick up his bat and glove down one day and strap on the pads the next. Clemson quarterback and slugger Kyle…Read More

Eric Byrnes Still Knows How to Wait Back on the Offspeed

Eric Byrnes was released by the Seattle Mariners a week and a half ago after a bad series of events. To start, Byrnes was batting .094 with three hits in 32 at-bats. Matters grew worse when Byrnes pulled back on a squeeze play hanging his runner out to dry at the plate, and he compounded…Read More

Derek “Dutch Oven” Holland

One of the common laments we hear is how there aren’t any more good nicknames in sports.

Yankee Vets Victims of the SI Jinx?

Whether you believe in the Sports Illustrated Cover Jinx or not, there’s no denying that it, along with the Madden Cover Curse, has produced some pretty significant coincidences over the years.  Drew Brees will appear on the cover of Madden 2011, but doesn’t seem too concerned about having a hex put on him as a…Read More

Milton Bradley is Finally Asking for Help

Seattle Mariners outfielder Milton Bradley has long been an LBS favorite because of his entertaining personality. But this time, there’s not much reason to bash Bradley; he’s actually acting like a man. We knew something was different when instead of yelling and screaming after being taken out of Tuesday’s game in the 6th inning, he…Read More
