Team BC was at Bryce Harper's debut Saturday night in Los Angeles and just happened to be sitting in a suite next to the Harper family. Just our luck. Bryce's father is the guy with the shaved head and the girl wearing red is Bryce's sister. The big mystery is who is the girl in the black shirt going nuts with anticipation every time Bryce stepped to the plate. It's not his last known girlfriend Alyssa Rodriguez? One of you bros knows Harper inside out. Let us know. More photos – JUMP!
Here we figured all these years that Jim Thome spent his winters in a double wide in Peoria, IL and scrapped by because he was an Every Man. We've been lied to by broadcasters who've given Thome his Paul Bunyan mystique, yet the guy is now living in a house with his & hers showers. Just look at that bathroom. Never seen a double wide with marble floors before. We've had enough, baseball broadcasters. The guy doesn't eat deer meat in December. JUMP!
Remember that Boston Red Sox 100th anniversary game a couple weeks ago where Kevin Millar & Pedro Martinez appeared to be hammered? The big news for us in that game was that the Sox were wearing plain white hats. No logo or writing. We figured it was just a matter of time before a Baseball Cap Bank Robber used one to confuse the fuzz. Guess what we think happened in Florida on Friday? Throwback robber! JUMP!
By now half of America is aware of the Red Sox fan getting kicked in the face during a wild fan fight Friday night at Yankee Stadium. Thanks to the sleuth work of Joe N. we now know the name of Red Sox Chick. Say hello to Nicole Marquez. Ironically, she's going to school at the New York Institute of Technology and playing softball for the school. Don't get greedy, she only has four public photos on her Facebook account from her trip to enemy territory. JUMP!
Bryce Harper, the Washington Nationals rookie, got his first hit of his Major League Baseball career off of a Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher for a double. Some Dodgers fans decided to moon, not only their pitcher, but also Bryce Harper. Yeah, it doesn't make sense to moon your own pitcher but the kids look pretty young. This may be the best rookie troll move of all time. We enhanced the image after the JUMP!
Rangers fan @millers_life sent word this afternoon that he was at last night's game against Tampa Bay and that he was so profoundly angered by this woman that we needed to see her in action. "Bottom of the 8th, Tex down 4 w the bases loaded last night. 16 rows behind home plate," Scott writes. We're not experts on the e-readers but that sure looks like a Kindle to us. Look, ladies, can you just act like you give two shits about that game? It's the bottom of 8 for God's sake. JUMP!
Just now noticing that Nick Johnson was in the lineup last night for the Orioles in a battle against the Blue Jays. Our hero, as you might remember, is having a rough season. He entered the game 0-for-23 for the season. Guess who went 0-for-3 last night? Yeah, things just aren't going Nick's way these days. He's now the only position player or DH to remain hitless. According to USA Today, Johnson will make $800,000 in 2012. Dude made over $100k this month without a hit.
There's nothing worse than sitting through a Padres game, watching dong shots fall short on the warning track and then puking all over yourself while some guy records it all and throws it on YouTube. From the look of this video Padres fan had a case of the stomach flu this week and couldn't keep down that veggie burrito and the $5.50 drafts. Best news for this guy is that he'll get at least 50k YouTube views for this spew. JUMP!
We loved this Rangers Fan of the Game segment on Tuesday. LOVED IT! Was going to upload it but MLB video goons, as we've told you, have a major beef with Jim Knox videos on BC so why waste our time uploading it. So some other guy did the deed. This is Screaming Banshee Chick and her Yankees fan ex-husband. They're divorced yet still share season tickets. Not kidding. And of course Knox finds them out of 47,000 fans. JUMP!
It's that time to play a game of 'Guess That MLB Sack,' a challenge to all of you who jersey chasers who think you know your sacks. This sack belongs to a guy whose recent relationship news caused some Internet buzz. That's the girlfriend on the left. They love dogs. He's a third baseman and was one of baseball's golden boys before they turned their attention towards Justin Verlander and Kate Upton. Need more hints? You suck. JUMP!
Nope, hadn't heard of Coast Carolina's DH Alex Buccilli until last night when his batting stance became all the rage during an ESPN3 broadcast. We all remember great batting stances that helped create Batting Stance Guy and a YouTube revolution. Forget all those stances. You haven't seen a batting stance as crazy as what Alex has for you this morning. Yes, that's an open stance. It's all about rhythm, says the ESPN crew. JUMP!
It's going to be one of those days around here. We're pissed off at MLB and have decided to push the envelope. The MLB goons don't want you watching :40 videos of off-the-field action so we'll go a different route and show you what @RangersGirl36 sent us last night. Yet another #RangersRack submission. That's right, MLB, we're promoting your asses via boobs. You know what gets more buzz than that stupid show with Kevin Millar? Boobs. JUMP!
Since we now know the MLB video goons are reading Busted Coverage on a daily basis, it would be the perfect time to tell you assholes how nice you are for blocking yesterday's Jim Knox video. You do realize that Jim Knox is like your Jerry Seinfeld, right? You do realize Jim Knox doing crazy shit in the stands causes people to watch games. Keeps them hooked through the 8th inning for his Fan of the Game promotion. Right? JUMP!
Must say we don't get too many bank robberies where a superfan goes with a tattoo and corresponding baseball hat. But that's exactly what Red Sox fan pulled off in this robbery. Hispanic bro just doesn't care. Police can use that tattoo to identify him all they want. Gotta catch him first. Look, wearing long sleeves is the obvious play here. Maybe it's a henna. Would this idiot be that smart? Our guess is no. JUMP!
Donovan McNabb played in only six games for the Minnesota Vikings but gets invited to all the cool parties this offseason. Here he is with Purple Jesus back in March in the Bahamas for a Vikings teammate's wedding. Crushed that? -350 on the crush line. In MLB news, 80 fans tried to throw harder than Jamie Moyer to get free tickets to a Fort Myers Miracle game. All they had to do was throw a 78 mph pitch. BOOM, free tickets. Nope, nobody could. Let's get rolling!
Big news out of Boston this afternoon concerning what is possibly bothering Kevin Youkilis this season. The guy is off to a smoking hot 8-for-46 start (.174) with only two doubles. Bobby Valentine called out the guy and the next thing you know all hell is breaking loose. Now comes news that Youk and Tom Brady's sister, Julie, got married in a very small wedding last week. Why get married during the season? Julie Brady is pregnant! JUMP!
