Jose Iglesias Defies Humanity, Turns In Play Of The Year

You can watch it one hundred times, but you will never understand how Jose Iglesias did this: You might be thinking: could this really be the play of the year? You’ve probably seen some great home-run-robberies, or diving-into-the-stands catches — how could a bare-handed play by a shortstop really be dubbed “the play of the...
Dear, Sports Shuffler: I Have Found You, The Greatest Thing To Ever Happen On Youtube

Dear, Sports Shuffler: I Have Found You, The Greatest Thing To Ever Happen On Youtube

Ricky Automatic found the Sports Shuffler: the world will never be the same. There I was, minding my own business on a Monday Night, absentmindedly trolling around the internet. After having no luck on mlb.com, I googled “Mark Trumbo Steal”, attempting to find a video of Mark Trumbo swiping a bag against the Indians, because...
Shut the Front Door: Yunel Escobar, Ben Zobrist Turn Ridiculous Double Play

Shut the Front Door: Yunel Escobar, Ben Zobrist Turn Ridiculous Double Play

I could write a lot of things about this, but I won’t. Instead, pay close attention to James Loney’s face: it says it all. Your browser does not support iframes. Time to get scared, Sox fans. These guys are like serially killers, mercilessly killing two people at a time with big, shit-eating grins on their...
All The Possible Reasons Why Albert Pujols Untucked Bartolo Colon's Jersey

All The Possible Reasons Why Albert Pujols Untucked Bartolo Colon’s Jersey

If you missed Bartolo Colon and Albert Pujols’ exchange last night, you missed a dandy. In Major League Baseball, we’re used to headlines about different kinds of interactions that take place between hitters and pitchers, the kind of interaction that Carlos Quentin and Zack Grienke have. It’s a funny thing, because baseball players generally seem...
Drew Stubbs and Nick Swisher Forget to Run Bases, Epitomize Why The Indians Keep Losing to the Tigers

Drew Stubbs and Nick Swisher Forget to Run Bases, Epitomize Why The Indians Keep Losing to the Tigers

The Tigers did things to the Indians this weekend that belong in R-rated movies. The Indians did things this weekend that don’t belong on a baseball field. The Indians’ pitching was bad, giving up 7,9, 6, and 4 runs, respectively, and proving hopeless at protecting the few leads they were able to briefly enjoy. Their...
Chris Davis Brings Buck Showalter Tears of Happiness

Chris Davis Brings Buck Showalter Tears of Happiness

I guess when your guy Chris Davis is  busy crushing his 30th homer before Independence day, these are the kinds of faces you make. Let’s see if this video helps Orioles fans make the same face: What is amazing to me, is that half of these home runs are on pitches that just aren’t bad....
Jose Valverde Designated For Assignment, But is the World a Better Place?

Jose Valverde Designated For Assignment, But is the World a Better Place?

Anybody who has ever watched Jose Valverde pitch knows that he is a grade-a, cold-blooded clown. I see this Tigers fan at work most days, and every time I see him he throws his head back in pain, and whispers, “Valverde!” to the ceiling. Mind you, Valverde might have saved a game on three pitches...
Dodgers Fan Brings L.A. Fandom To New Heights, Unabashedly Cheers For Other Team

Dodgers Fan Brings L.A. Fandom To New Heights, Unabashedly Cheers For Other Team

If I told you that a fan of an MLB team was caught, on camera, fist-pumping in response to an opponents’ catch, you would say this guy was a fan of what team? If you said the Dodgers, slap on the sun screen, and head down to Malibu: this vacation is on the sponsors of The...
Chew Tobacco, Spit: Blake Shelton's "Boys 'Round Here" Is Baseball's Smash-Hit of the Summer

Chew Tobacco, Spit: Blake Shelton’s “Boys ‘Round Here” Is Baseball’s Smash-Hit of the Summer

What could be more “Baseball” than a song about chasing girls, drinking beer, and chewing tobacco? Blake Shelton didn’t record a hit, but a goddamned grand slam with this one. Mix in an uncomfortable culture-clash, and you’ve scored one of the most fun music videos I’ve seen in a long time. As illustrated in this video, Shelton...
I Get Hot When Jason Kipnis Runs The Bases

I Get Hot When Jason Kipnis Runs The Bases

Confession: I have a man-crush on Jason Kipnis. No, it doesn’t have to do with the fact that he is stunningly handsome, or that he seems to maintain a positive attitude. It is, however, partially related to the way he makes behind-the-back flips like Roberto Alomar, and the way he hits three-run walk-off bombs. But...
Manny Announcer Being Manny Announcer, as the Taiwanese Worshipping of Manny Ramirez Continues

Manny Announcer Being Manny Announcer, as the Taiwanese Worshipping of Manny Ramirez Continues

The guy who calls EDA Rhino’s games in the CPDL — and there is no way I’m looking up what those things stand for — really lucked out this year when the Rhino’s signed Manny Ramirez. Or, perhaps, the rest of the world lucked out, because the home run calls have been pure gold. The...
CarGo Mashes 3 HRs, is Ridiculous

CarGo Mashes 3 HRs, is Ridiculous

I have almost an unhealthy obsession with the swing of Carlos Gonzalez. There are only so many 5 tool guys in baseball, and each is different and amazing in their own way; CarGo just happens to have the sweetest swing out of all of them. It’s long, and that’s why he strikes out a little...
