Jon Lester and Fluke No-Hitters

I feel as if I’m not allowed to say anything negative about the guy because he overcame cancer. I mean no ill-will towards Jon Lester, and I certainly respect him for having dealt with such a severe issue and making it to the major leagues where he’s even won a Game 7 in the World…Read More

Terrible Jersey: Albert Belle, Indians

Life just hasn’t been the same since Marco stopped adding to the Terrible Jersey Hall of Fame on his old blog, Just Call Me Juice. It was a great, creative idea for a recurring feature, and the epitome of what makes sports blogs so much fun. In fact, one of my blogging highlights was making…Read More

Building an MLB Team with One Pitcher and One Hitter

The fine gentlemen of MLB FanHouse had a good roundtable going in which they asked the question: if you were building a team and had your choice of one pitcher and one hitter to start with, who would they be?

Since nobody’s interested in picking up the slugger, he’s gotta figure out new ways to occupy his time. Apparently Baroid has figured out what to do in between curls at the gym and hacks at the cages. As AJ mentioned at Deadspin, Barry’s now making cameos in music videos. Check him out around the 0:45…Read More

Ken Griffey Jr. Quite the Penny Pincher

Baseball pranks certainly provide tremendous entertainment and help lighten the mood especially when your team’s struggling. One of my favorites was when Jarrod Washburn brought an ostrich into the Angels’ clubhouse and scared the daylights out of Ramon Ortiz. That was tremendous. But what Ken Griffey Jr. did was also fantastic. Apparently he enjoys creating…Read More

Your 2008 Orioles: Where Magic Happens

You have to figure that pretty much anything is fair game when Kevin Millar’s on your team. Mr. Cowboy Up was no doubt a part of this music video the Orioles filmed to promote the team for the upcoming season. An excellent find that Jimmy at SI passes along. Check out those boys sing: The…Read More
