Yeah, much like Will Brinson put it at Fanhouse, it only took Reggie Jackson two minutes to offend Jewish people, and take a jab at A-Rod. It started off with Reggie negotiating with an artist, asking the man if he was Jewish because he was working a tough negotiation. And that resulted in the following…Read More
Classic moment at the Home Run Derby introductions tonight. Chase Utley was the second player introduced by ESPN’s Chris Berman. I couldn’t really hear the crowd noise too clearly, but they must have been booing because it produced a pretty clear response from Utley: Absolutely priceless. Maybe some guys would come across as jerks for…Read More
I’ve said it before, some pictures are worth a thousand words. This would be one of them. Somehow I don’t think this would be funny if it were any other player, but being Big Papi, it all of a sudden becomes funny. Of course I could be overstating things, but he just cracks me up….Read More

What you are about to see is Kash Beauchamp, manager of the Wichita Wingnuts. And yes, he is crazy. Video via FanIQ. And much like 100% Injury Rate, I cannot possibly show this without comparing it to the Phillip Wellman blowup — the standard bearer for all minor league managerial meltdowns.
Lance Berkman is absolutely mashing this year, so much so that he won the fan vote to start as the NL first baseman over sluggers like Albert Pujols, Derrek Lee, Ryan Howard, Adrian Gonzalez, and Prince Fielder. He also got invited to participate in the Home Run Derby at Yankee Stadium and happily accepted. Lots…Read More
