In case you missed the news, the Yankees are in Seattle and decided to trade for Ichiro and his 2,500 career hits (in just 12 years). And just like that, the guy was suiting up for the Yanks and going 1-for-4 against his old team. Don't be sad for Ichiro and his dwindling career. The guy is making $17,000,000 this year in the final year of his contract. We're talking $129M in career earnings. In Olympics news, Usain Bolt says he's going to run a 9.4 100m. Let's get rolling!
Shaving anything onto yourself is a huge commitment and takes a lot of time. Well, this guy just took the shaving game to the next level with this Joe Mauer back shave that includes his number. Thanks to Brian Floyd and @cjzero for catching this absolute train wreck of a shave and bringing it to our attention. If this guys wants to shave "Mauer 7" on his back, he should be able to, because this is America. USA! USA! USA! It's not like he did a bad job on it. He went all in. You gotta respect that. JUMP!
Johnny Damon of the Cleveland Indians made an amazing dive in the stands and also seemed to make some friends in the process. This girl seemed pretty interested in him even though she didn't put her cell phone or her beer down. The guys around him look completely psyched too. We got a guy that looks like a huge NASCAR fan and a guy with a camouflage hat. You can check out the GIFs here. Enhanced image after the JUMP!
Here's what we know about Brewers' superfan Front Row Amy: she really doesn't give two sh*ts what you guys say about her. Just doesn't care. Still goes to Brewers games. Still sits in that Row 1, Seat 5 seat. 50+ games a year. And now, thanks to a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel fluff feature, commentors are destroying her on a variety of subjects.JUMP!

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!
Roger Clemens is officially back. Sure, there was the BC report a couple weeks ago about the camo cargo shorts he wore to his son's baseball game. But this weekend Rocket took his swag to the next level over the weekend at the East Cobb baseball complex in Marietta, Georgia. His son was in town for a 17U tournament. The guy seemed to be kinda quiet after his perjury acquittal, but now the swag is back. Just look at that belt. JUMP!
Of course we're excited over the news of Pete Rose and his girlfriend Kiana Kim getting a reality show on TLC. It's like sports' version of Ice T & Coco T. Tell me you're not excited to see how Pete manages a life with an Asian chick with giant boobs and personality. That's the show right there. Week after week. Don't forget that Pete is 71-years-old. We expect multiple TVs showing sulky horse racing & the MLB package. JUMP!
The Kate Upton-Justin Verlander saga just gets better and better. Here's the Minneapolis-St.Paul Fox affiliate trying to run all-star game highlights but end up showing Kate Upton's Cat Daddy instead. Was this planned? Probably. You know those wacky kids at Fox, always looking to spice up the news with a then-19-year-old shaking her ass on the News at 9. JUMP!
Our friends at It's Always Sunny In Detroit stopped by a suburban Detroit gym last night and nearly had a heart attack when Kate Upton just happened to be in the same gym. That's right, Kate Upton is back in Detroit. Why? We assume because she's dating Justin Verlander. You might remember that the two shared some personal time before the all-star break by catching an Aerosmith concert & hanging at the bar. JUMP!
The next great WAG story may be upon us. First we had Lauren Tannehill rock our worlds at the NFL Draft. Now it looks like Mike Trout's girlfriend, Jessica Cox, is the sports world's next darling. As Trout is taking the MLB by storm with his .349 batting average, we are bound to see more of Cox. At first glance, she seems pretty cute. Comparing her to BC favorite Lauren Tannehill? Unlike her boyfriend, we're not sure she's ready for the big leagues just yet. JUMP!
(1.) How many hits did it take to get 999 runs? (2.) At what point did the Twins go to position players as to save the bullpen for today's game? (3.) Will Ron Gardenhire lose his job over this embarrassing loss? Helluva fantasy baseball night.
It's 88 degrees and cloudy in Chicago at 2:38 p.m., according to Weather.com. Pretty sure the Cubs game isn't being delayed due to snow. Looks like the commute home is going to be a bitch. Friday traffic and snow drifts on Lake Shore Dr. You've been warned, Chicagoans. (via @bairet)
What is the hottest baseball card - not featuring a baseball player - of 2012? It has to be this autographed Kate Upton Topps Allen & Ginter card that is being called her rookie card. Just last night one sold for $305. (Yes, this is a desperate Ms. Upton post, but you guys are infatuated, so why the hell not?) If you think that's a high price, look at one one seller is now asking for the same card. JUMP!
Fans drinking beers on the infield. Crazy interns jumping around on trampolines. Guys grilling hot dogs on the infield. 23 targets. The Reading Phillies went balls to the walls with last night's Double-A home run derby and it was a huge success. Say hello to the future. Of course you guys are tired of the normal. You want guys hitting baseballs at a chick on a dunk tank. Why? Because that's fun, right? JUMP!
From Joe Buck to Ron Washington to Bud Selig, nobody was spared in last night's all-star game tweet-slaughter. Yes, this game still decides home-field advantage in the World Series. Looks like that means four World Series games in Pittsburgh - in October - for the first time since 1979. Anyway, the Twitter retards did their thing like normal instead of maybe going for a walk and enjoying summer. JUMP!
Via: Police are searching for a suspect who robbed a sandwich shop on June 29. Around 1:35 p.m., a man entered Lenny’s Sub Shop at 11420 Dairy Ashford and placed an order. He walked to the register where he showed the cashier a gun and demanded cash. The employee gave him some money and the suspect fled. He is described as a slender, African-American male, between 35 and 45. Note: the robber walked with a limp!
