We can say with full confidence that 90% of our readers were not watching today's game between the Oakland A's and the LA Angels. No worries, we got you guys covered. In the 4th inning, Erick Aybar hit a line drive right up the middle...until it connected directly with A's pitcher Brandon McCarthy's head. McCarthy dropped like a ton of bricks and trainers immediately came to his side. Respect to McCarthy though...bro walked off on his own power. JUMP!
And that's just the tip of the iceberg of what has been posted today to Ozzie Guillen's Twitter account. Yes, Ozzie is a crazy maniac who doesn't usually make sense in English, but these tweets are more incoherent than usual. Man juices? And there's so much more. For example: whit. all. this. trafic. lol. but. is. ok. i. going. to. listen. el. tigre. rafael. salsa. program. in. venezuela. animoooo(.) Ozzie's account had been dead since May 17. JUMP!
The Yankees held a 10-game lead in the AL East on July 18. Lets just say things have changed. The Yankees are in an ugly slide, going 19-25 since then. The Bronx Bombers find themselves in a tie with the division rival Orioles who are 29-15 in the same span. Are the Yankees the new Mets? Could they possibly blow the division lead this late in the season? Twitter was going nuts last night as Yankees fans prepared for the worst. JUMP!
He might have hit just .194 this summer for the Worcester Tornadoes, but Jose Canseco isn't about to hang up the cleats on the 2012 season. There he was, Bash Brother, reportedly slumming it on Labor Day with fat guys at a Fullerton, California softball tourney. This guy just can't get the sport out of his blood. 14 hits in 72 ABs for Worcester didn't end his dreams. Have bat, will travel. JUMP!
It looks like retirement is hitting Jim Edmonds a little harder than he expected. With his career earnings from baseball in the $90 million range, it's hard to believe Edmonds could possibly be strapped for cash. Why then is he selling his 2007 Mercedes Benz S600...for $100,000 less than he put in it?! The car doesn't even have 25k miles on it! Is it possible that Jimmy Baseball has burned through his fortune? Does he need this $80 grand more than we think? JUMP!
Just over a month ago we introduced you to Jessica Cox, Mike Trout's long-time girlfriend. We were doing a routine check of her Twitter today and came across this gem! Jess tweeted out a junior prom photo from 2007 of her with Trout. An adorable couple reliving their high school glory days, but Trout is rocking quite the brace-face! How far he's come from this photo to the cover of SI in only five years! JUMP!
Are you out of work, behind on your house payments, the electric is about to be shut off and you need to pay for a divorce? Getting out of debt could be easy. Do you know this bank robber? Would you consider turning on your homeboy, but don’t have the nerves to rat? Let us help you. We’ll turn on your homeboy. And split the reward money with you! It’s a win-win. Full story – JUMP!
Pablo Sandoval and Brandon Crawford combined for a circus catch in last nights game against the Houston Astros. Sandoval AKA The Kung Fu Panda made a mad dash from third base to chase down a foul ball. He got to the spot but over-pursued and ended up falling over, losing control of the ball. Enter shortstop Brandon Crawford. This bro hustled over from his position to make arguably the catch of the year! JUMP!
For whatever reason Ron Jeremy always seems to make his presence felt on BC. Last time it was when he attended a random Memphis vs. Ole Miss game, and now this. Chad Brockhoff (@CBrokhoff941) is a former employee of the Sarasota based Herald Tribune. He dug up this gem and tweeted it out last night...long live The Hedgehog. In NFL news, Jerry Jones is denying all reports of the "Dez Rules" and perennial screw-up Kenny Britt is off the PUP! JUMP!
Back in May we reported some big time WAG news. Former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Ann Lux was reportedly engaged to Red Sox infielder Will Middlebrooks. It was an adorable story. The two met when they were 12-years-old and grew up together. It was practically a movie script waiting to happen. Until now. A seemingly normal photo surfaced of Lux out on the town with some friends...but look closer. No engagement ring! That's right, Lux ditched the rock! JUMP!
Last night's Padres-Braves game came and went. Odds are none of you watched it and that's a damn shame because you missed the catch of the night. Logan Forsythe, the Padres infielder hit what looked like a routine foul ball...until a Padres ball girl named Catalina stepped in. Hopping up instinctively from her chair, Catalina stuck her glove out and pulled a frozen rope out of the air. Best part? Braves reliever Chad Durbin pays Catalina his respects with a fist-pound. JUMP!
Our wrestling sources tell us that Kane's unhealthy obsession with torturing Pete Rose continued last night on Raw. Meanwhile, the above shirt has been spotted recently in Cincinnati. Someone tell me where I can get one (via @TheycallmeNich). In college football news, Penn State has banned 'Sweet Caroline' from being played during games - something, something, offensive lyrics, "touching me, touching you." The students will just improvise. Let's get rolling!
Have you heard about the insane baseball trade between the Red Sox and the suddenly loaded with cash Dodgers? Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez ...
Aaron Smith got married last weekend. He seems to be a decent guy. Good head on his shoulders. 118 Twitter followers. Cute bride. The happy couple have great smiles. Just building a nice little life for themselves. The only issue for Aaron is that he's a Cubs fan and about to have his groom's cake passed around the Internet. Sure, it's a great cake, but nothing is more depressing than being reminded of the Cubs futility by your new wife. JUMP!
Of course you have a '69 Jersey' buddy. You know the guy: lives by YOLO. He's probably married; his wife hates him, too. But he's the hardo who'll walk into an opposing team's stadium wearing a 'Your Mom 69' jersey. Your goal is to not get stabbed or shot. 69 YOLO doesn't care. The wife is about to leave his ass and he's not at a football game to meet a wife. He's there to crush beers and maybe throw a couple punches. JUMP!
Cubs fans just can't catch a break. As if the humiliation of a 47-76 record isn't bad enough, this guy has to deal with the fact that he was on TV doing this. He totally whiffed on the ball, and fell over the edge of the wall. Oh, it gets worse...he loses part of his scalp. Poor schmuck just totally f*cked up this attempt, and thanks to the internet, he won't be living it down anytime soon. JUMP!
