Kerry Wood Gets Flippant in Bullpen

We’ve all heard about players getting pretty crazy in the bullpen. They’re just sitting out there for inning on end, in need of entertainment just like the rest of us. Sometimes they’ll look at naked pictures of girls, other times they’ll create new technological devices to keep busy. And in rare occasions, you might actually…Read More

Pillow Sends Brandon Inge to the DL

I’m always a sucker for weird baseball injuries, so after seeing this up at SportsbyBrooks, there was no question I had to post it. Brandon Inge was placed on the DL with a strained oblique. How did it happen you ask? The Detroit Free Press answers the question: Inge said he aggravated the injury moving…Read More

Not unlike Willie who was critical after his firing, McLaren took a small hammer to his former team. Via Mullet’s perm at FanHouse: ”There is tension, friction…Read More

John Gibbons’ Grandma Predicted Future

Pretty much anytime you hear of a manager throwing literal punches at one of his players, you know he doesn’t have a very good grip on things. I’m actually surprised Gibbons lasted this long. The Blue Jays have a good team, though their lineup has underachieved. There have been criticisms of Gibbons that he didn’t…Read More
