Phillies’ Security Doesn’t Mess Around

Note to self and all loyal readers: if you’re ambition is to some day rush the field at a sporting event — and accept spending the night in jail to make 40,000 people cheer for you — don’t do it at a Philadelphia Phillies game. A fan had to learn that the hard way last…Read More

Mariners Are Offensively Challenged

Last year the Mariners may have won 85 games and finished 3rd in the AL West, but they were last in the American League in runs scored.

Pitcher Yovani Gallardo didn’t know how to react to Zaun’s errant throws because it had never happened before. Before we all…Read More

One of the best times to be in Chicago is when the Chicago White Sox play the Chicago Cubs during interleague play. Whether you are a Cubs fan walking into U.S Cellular Field, or a Sox fan strolling into Wrigley Field, you can be sure there will be plenty of trash talking and Chicago pride…Read More

Phillies Make Howard Second Highest Paid in MLB

The Philadelphia Phillies took another step toward preserving the longevity of their National League dominance today when they gave first basemen Ryan Howard a 5-year, $125 million dollar extension.  Howard is already under team control through 2012, so the new deal keeps him in a Phillies uniform through 2016 with a team option for 2017. …Read More
