The 2013 Clown Show All-Star Team

The 2013 Clown Show All-Star Team

It’s that time of year, when the MLB All-Star teams are decided by us, the fans. Yes, that time of the year when people vote for their favorite players 35 times, disregarding anything that resembles merit-based discernment. Undoubtedly, the players from the most popular teams will compromise the majority of the All-Star squads, while deserving...
We Would Like to Thank the Giants & Homer Bailey for the Dominono

We Would Like to Thank the Giants & Homer Bailey for the Dominono

Lil RoRo: Question: Is Dominos pizza worth eating, even if it’s free? Before tonight, I would have said that’s an easy yes. After tonight, I’m really not so sure. Let me set it up for you: when a no hitter is thrown, Dominos gives the first 10,000 subscribers to MLB.tv who answer some newfangled email...
I Was Kicked Out of an Oakland A's Game for Drinking the Official Beer of the Oakland A's

I Was Kicked Out of an Oakland A’s Game for Drinking the Official Beer of the Oakland A’s

It was hot today. Maybe I don’t need to tell you that, because it’s summertime, and you were probably hot too. Maybe hot enough to drink an ice cold beverage, like a frozen juicebox, a can of Coke, or hell, you deserve it – an all American marketed macrobrew owned by a Canadian company. You’ve...

These Are Lou Gehrig’s Testicles

And they played more consecutive baseball games than you ever will.
Fantasy Kryptonite: Chris Young

Fantasy Kryptonite: Chris Young

There’s a point in every fantasy draft where you select someone way too high for their value, or bid way too much money for them because you believe that this year, this goddamned year, the dude is going to bust out and rake his way to fantasy gold. This continues year after year with the...
Manny Ramirez is Long Gone, Just Like an Ex-girlfriend That Will Never Return

Manny Ramirez is Long Gone, Just Like an Ex-girlfriend That Will Never Return

Friends, I bring sad tidings. Manny Ramirez, in every way this site’s spirit animal, is leaving Taiwanese baseball. I know, I know. How bright his sweet light shined, and oh how quickly it should fade into the great night, until it is one with the moon; a perfect orb traveling ceaselessly – seamed, parabolic. He...
The Coliseum Filled with Shit Yesterday, and I'm Not Talking About the M's Bullpen

The Coliseum Filled with Shit Yesterday, and I’m Not Talking About the M’s Bullpen

Unfortunately, the sell out crowd for the A’s – Mariners game on Sunday “overloaded” the sewage system in the Coliseum, causing raw waste to seep into the clubhouses of both teams. How a 6 day home stand with only one sell out could overload a stadium’s sewage system is beyond me, but supposedly this is...
A's 6/16/13 - Ode to the Fat Man

A’s 6/16/13 – Ode to the Fat Man

Starting Pitcher: Colon, 8-2, 2.92 ERA He must be on drugs, right? That is the only way I can fathom Bartolo Colon doing what he’s doing. He dials it up to 95, throws an exploding slider, doesn’t walk a soul, and pretty much goes 6+ without fail. But whether or not he is going to...
Ted Williams, the 1999 ASG, & the Burn of the Bat

Ted Williams, the 1999 ASG, & the Burn of the Bat

My favorite baseball stories are the tiny little gems that you never think about on a day to day basis, even as a hardcore fan, the kind that add to the lore and legend of the game and give it its mythical status. They’re the ones about Ruth,  DiMaggio, Bo Jackson. Every once and a...
Yet Another Example of Dusty Baker Being the All Time Worst Manager to Pitch for, Ever, In the History of the World

Yet Another Example of Dusty Baker Being the All Time Worst Manager to Pitch for, Ever, In the History of the World

Well, well, well. If it isn’t our old friend Dusty, up to his old tricks. Well publicized is Mr. Baker ruining the promising careers of young aces through overuse, especially during his Chicago days with Kerry Wood and Mark Prior (Let’s have Wood throw 120-plus pitches in 13 games!). But Dusty Baker also has a...
Ike Davis Sent Down to AAA, Will Assume Bat Boy Duties

Ike Davis Sent Down to AAA, Will Assume Bat Boy Duties

In a long foreseen, benignly tragic, and altogether merciful turn of events, Ike Davis of the New York Mets has been sent down to Triple A Las Vegas to assume bat boy duties until he is ready to possibly regain his spot as the Met’s starting first basemen. “It was a very hard decision,” said...
Confessions of an Ex-Red Sox Fan: Breaking Down Jose Iglesias

Confessions of an Ex-Red Sox Fan: Breaking Down Jose Iglesias

Two disclaimers up front; first of all, I used to be a Red Sox fan. I know. I. Know. Can’t help it – I was born in Boston, grew up going to Fenway, and it was in my blood from the first offing. It took the Red Sox becoming an overbloated sham of a team...
