As if nobody was going to record Jose Canseco's at-bats during his first home game in Worcester, Mass. for the Tornadoes. Guess what was posted on YouTube this week? A Canseco AB from said home game. The guy has four hits in 20 ABs and a lousy RBI. He's also tied for the team-high in strikeouts (7). Of course the asshole hasn't gotten around to addressing his .200 average on Twitter. Check out this bat speed. JUMP!
Greg Maddux's first MLB salary: $82,500. Last salary:$10mm. Career earnings: just shy of $154mm. However, the guy could literally drive down to the Bellagio and not a soul would realize that was a hall of famer playing at the $25 BJ table. Unassuming bazillionaire. Anyway, Maddux is unloading his Vegas dump with a couple cool pools. Don't say we didn't warn you about this Imperial Palace-like hell hole. JUMP!
Via: A north side PNC Bank branch was robbed late Tuesday morning. The robber entered the bank, 3940 N. Harlem, and demanded money from a teller. He implied he had a weapon but did not display one, and no injuries were reported, police said. Just when we think Phillies Nation is on the right track some bro in Chicago has to ruin the fan reputation. Kinda a ballsy move wearing the Phillies gear in a Chi-town robbery. One of you knows him.
First of all, we now know that it's highly likely that Cleveland Indians' reliever Joe Smith is dating Fox 8 sports reporter & former Miss Teen USA Allie LaForce. How do we know? Because Smith, Ms. LaForce and her family was in a feud at notorious Lake Erie Put-In-Bay island bar, Roundhouse. Smith failed to show bar security his I.D. and was denied entry to the legendary boozery. JUMP!
The story that "blew up" the Internet yesterday had to be the Chuck Knoblauch hitting on NYC G train chicks tale. It was posted on Tumblr by a Brooklyn librarian who claimed a guy named "Chuck" tried to pick up her and a friend with tales of Fenway, baseball and his chef pants. Of course Knobs got on Twitter last night to defend himself. JUMP!
Another night in May, another foul ball off some guy's forehead who bought epic seats to a Mariners game and even brought his glove for last night's tilt against the Rangers. There he was, in perfect position, for a grounder down the first base line that would be the perfect opportunity to add to his douchey baseball collection. Maybe even get this one signed by Justin Smoak. HERE IT COMES! IN THE GLOVE! PERFECT POSITION! JUMP!
Via: According to a police report, Chapman, 24, was caught driving 93 mph on I-71 at the 99.8 mile marker around 12:35 a.m. Monday. The speed limit is 65 mph. Chapman was driving a black 1999 Mercedes S63. During the traffic stop, police found that Chapman had a suspended license through the state of Kentucky. Let's all realize that Grove City is a Columbus suburb. The Reds played in New York on Sunday. Road beef run to Columbus? Odd.
This morning we ran a post where three guys where stomping a defenseless dude in his boxer shorts in the middle of a San Diego street after last Thursday's Dodgers game. It's one of the most brutal street fights we've ever seen. And it's in HD! We asked for help, and a Twitter follower points out that the one guy is wearing a Mike Cameron #25 shirt. There you have it, Padres fan has officially trumped Phillies fan. JUMP!
Our friends at Buzzfeed Sports tipped us off to a very strange incident reported today on Tumblr revolving around former Twins & Yankees second baseman Chuck Knoblauch and a couple of chicks. It seems Knobs was on the G train in NYC and decided he wanted to use his baseball past to work over a couple young lasses. Only problem for Knobs is that he didn't get the chicks & one started posting the encounter. JUMP!
Pat the Bat, as we mentioned Saturday morning, went on a Philly bender this weekend in honor of Pat Burrell Retirement Weekend. Of course the guy drank truckloads of booze, went bar hopping at Philly's finest establishments and even was allowed to grace some chick named Jill Marie with his throwing hand on her left breast. Yes, we're still waiting for the shirtless dancing pics from early Saturday morning. Breast grab will have hold over you guys. JUMP!
Just happened upon this video today while looking for footage of the Dodgers fan fight this weekend that's getting all sorts of attention from L.A. media. What we have here, according to the YouTuber who uploaded it, is from Thursday night's Padres-Dodgers game in San Diego. What we have is one guy in his boxers challenging three homeboys to a street fight. What happens next is a brutal curb stomping in the middle of a street. JUMP!
We suggest you go visit Crossing Broad this morning for a full report on what Pat Burrell was up to very early this morning in Philadelphia. There are rumors of Pat the Bat & Chase Utley holding court at some bar called the Pen & Pencil. Needless to say we're on pins & needles waiting for the shirtless pics & the videos to surface. It's Burrell weekend in Philly and all hell is about to break loose. Skanks should be on HIGH ALERT! Send Burrell intel: email@example.com
Sick and tired of MLB's bullshit rules and its incessant need to ruin the fun at the ballpark? Security at yesterday's Diamondbacks-Rockies game (in Denver) have officially become enemy #1 in our eyes. Watch as Dbacks fan makes a sweet play on a HR from some Rockies scrub & instantly throws it back. Home fans do it all the time, right? So Dbacks fan gets ejected for throwing back a Rockies dong. Pure arrogance, Colorado. JUMP!
Via: A drunk, off-duty cop was ejected from Citi Field in the middle of a Mets game and arrested after he refused to leave his illegally occupied seat, officials said yesterday. Eduardo Cornejo, 30, was cornered by stadium security officials during the game Wednesday against the Cincinnati Reds at about 9:30 p.m. after he made himself at home in a better seat than the one he had bought, sources said. Yes, the Mets lost 6-3 and the game started at like 7:05. Do the math.
Ever heard of the Rayne (Louisiana) Independent? No? Same here and we used to pride ourselves on knowing pretty much every newspaper with an 8,000 circulation and above. Rayne, a city with a population of just 8,500 in 2000, is known as the 'Frog Capital of the World.' As you can tell, it's an outpost. It's just another exit on I-10. However, the town's newspaper is about to get national attention over what ran in today's edition.
As a Reds' fan, nothing pains me more than seeing Fox Sports Ohio cameras catching dorky ass fans sulking at Citi Field after the bullpen blows a four-run lead & gives up five in the 8th. And then you add in the fact that 'Bruce' is wearing his stupid ass snack pack backpack and Livestrong bracelet and you have a Rockwellian screencap. Head to toe in Reds gear is never as bad until you start strapping on the gym pack. Not a good look at all, Ohioans.
