Who Used Heart Attack? Me. RIP Lou

Yankees longtime PA announcer Bob Sheppard died at the age of 99 last week. Yankees owner George Steinbrenner died of a heart attack a few days later.

Joey Votto Misses Point of All-Star Game

Here at LBS, we were pretty impressed with Marlon Byrd‘s heads-up play that helped the National League win its first MLB All-Star Game in 14 tries. In theory, the play was beneficial for every NL player in that it helped lock up home field advantage for their league in the World Series. Everyone was thankful…Read More

Marlon Byrd Helps NL Get Over Hump

The National League defeated the American League Tuesday night to win the 2010 MLB All-Star Game in Anaheim. Amazingly, it was the first time the NL won in over 13 years.  Aside from Brian McCann’s bases clearing double in the seventh that put the NL on top for good, the play of the night came…Read More
