The game itself may not be in season, but baseball players perpetrating creepy shit is definitely in season. No, this is not another Jerry Sandusky deal. We'd like to tell you know one was harmed, but a 31 year-old dude was trying to have sex with a 14 year-old girl. There's something fundamentally wrong with this. We may oogle women -- and we do oogle women -- but there's a line. Rob Francis is apparently not aware of it. JUMP!
You think Cleveland was mad when LeBron James publicly embarrassed them with his Jim Gray 'Decision?' Anger is boiling over in Missouri where fans are barely a month into enjoying another World Series ring and yet Albert Pujols goes and crushes their spirit by signing today with the Angels. Of course Twitter is angry. Of course the radio talk shows are 24-7 'What Albert meant to this city.' And then there is a Conoco and this message. Oh, it's on now, Pujols. JUMP!
Before we go any further with the normal anger from Twitter Nation, think about how easy it would be to say 'yes' to a guaranteed baseball contract that would pay you $68,493 per day (every day) for the next 10 years. Can't be taken away from you no matter how terrible you play in year 7 for the Angels. Of course you'd do the same thing Albert Pujols did today, agreeing to a 10-year, $250,000,000 contract with the team. Guess who's angry? JUMP!
Via WHDH: Police are searching for a suspect who broke into a Newton home before taking off with the homeowner’s car. Police say the 38-year-old homeowner was on the third floor when the suspect broke into his Jackson Street home. When he heard a noise and went downstairs to investigate, he found the suspect in his bedroom. Just wondering: does the sketch artist ask if Red Sox bro wore his hat that high on his head? Turn in Sox fan: email@example.com
Jamie Moyer hasn't pitched for the Seattle Mariners since 2006 but he still owns one of those stoic Seattle homes that end up being turned into crazy contemporaries by tech dorks. There's lots of wood. The normal - you make your ham and cheese sandwiches just like everyone else - kitchen with all the upgrades. You also get one of the worst theaters we've seen since starting our athlete real estate listing services. Dude, this is why the house isn't selling. Gut it! JUMP!
The Philly Inquirer reported yesterday: The FBI is searching for a bank robber who wore a Phillies cap as he held up the Society Hill branch of Wells Fargo this morning. The suspect is described as 5-foot-4, with a thin to medium build, and clean shaved. He wore a black jacket and a red Phillies ball cap. Gee, this should be an easy case to crack. Let's see, Phillies fan, 5-4, looks kinda white to maybe Latino. Yep, we expect this one to be solved in days.
Mark Teixeira has either made or is still owed a total of $100,000,000 in his MLB career. He'll make $22.5MM each year for the next five years. So imagine our shock this morning when Mark hit enter on this tweet: "I've never gone shopping on Black Friday and this incident reminds me why..." Tex was referencing today's news that some lady unloaded pepper spray on fellow Black Friday shoppers. That's why? We figured it was that Dolce & Gabbana wasn't running sales?
Erin Hawksworth, a sports reporter for the Fox affiliate in Seattle, just happens to follow Uncle Busted Coverage on Twitter so we tried to ask her yesterday what her favorite Thanksgiving food dish was for our 36 Hot Chicks & Their Favorite Thanksgiving Dishes feature. Erin finally answered, "Turkey, Turkey, Turkey! Can't have turkey without stuffing though." She was ill yesterday, hence the late response. We then started talking about a Boston Red Sox job. JUMP!
ARod is at it again this week at his Miami mansion where we now have meathead chicks doing handstands and cartwheels for Centaur. Paparazzi photographers hit the motherlode yesterday when ARod's dream came true. A couple ladies were just running around like maniacs and the Yankees slugger couldn't take his eyes off the ripped thighs. PHOTOS! JUMP!
Via BC Afternoon Editor Monty: Former pitcher Kris Benson's hot, dumb stripper wife Anna Benson is back and she's not only looking great, but she's dropping her usual bits of insightful knowledge. Oh, and she's starring in this show called Baseball Wives too, but that's not what's important right now. Anna tells us why Kris got traded by the Mets (her funbags!), how classy she is and her new method of punishing Kris if he cheats. Hey, we've got some fine-ass pics of too! Check it!
This is just the kind of news that'll send the Internet into a feeding frenzy for 2-3 days. We now know that Phillies dork Hunter Pence is dating Playboy Miss May 2007 Shannon James, a Philadelphian. This isn't one of those cases where we're guessing they're dating. James and Pence are dating to the point that they left this morning for a Cabo vacation. Update your WAG lists. Update your Hottest Phillies Wives & Girlfriends lists. Pence hit the hot chick jackpot. JUMP!
Just when you thought ARod really was just getting exercise advice from stripper pole expert Ella Magers, now comes word that the Cameron Diaz ripoff was on Centaur's Miami palace terrace in her bikini. Cameras, yesterday, caught Magers just destroying the Miami sun with grotesque abs and those funky hip muscle lines. A month ago everyone was saying Ella was just 'working out' ARod. This kinda confirms there is more to the relationship. JUMP!
BC Assignment Editor Monty reports: Marty Cordova was a baseball player who probably spent more time on the disabled list than he did on the field, but that doesn't mean he didn't do well for himself. Just take a look at his Henderson, Nevada castle. It can be all yours for a mere $3.25 million and by the look of things, it's probably worth every penny. Either Marty has mob ties or he just got paid a lot for hitting .274. Check it out!
Cardinals World Series hero David Freese could have a wardrobe malfunction tonight at the Country Music Awards. Freese tweets, Bag didn't make my connector to Nashville. I wonder if I can get by presenting with @ErinAndrews in Nike sweatpants and a hoodie?!?!
#cmas. Can't say we'll be spending out Wed. night waiting for these two to hit the stage so someone please send us an email if Freese ends up in the sweatpants. firstname.lastname@example.org
Can we really feel bad for Mike Hampton and his real estate issues in Phoenix? You think Mike felt bad making $124,000,000 over his 16-year baseball career which accounted for one 20-win season and two all-star appearances? Look, Mike's about to lose at least $2,000,000 on this pad and how much more in decorations wasted. Could you rich bastards just settle for the $500k 5 bedroom, 2.5 bath spread? No? Then you deserve to crash and burn. JUMP!
When in Rome, do as the Romans do. A group of MLB players touring Taiwan to play the national time did as the locals do earlier this week, stopping in Snake Alley to drink some shots of snake blood. The players watched the snakes get sacrificed and then threw back shots... some more than others. Whether the blood gave them special powers is debatable, but they dominated in their first game of the series.
