Walt Weiss Colorado House: $4MM For All This! [BC Pad Purveyors]

Ah, to be a mediocre baseball player with staying power. That's what former Oakland A's and Colorado Rockies shortstop Walt Weiss was and it paid him well. It paid him so well, in fact, he was able to afford 73 acres in Colorado. Now he wants to pawn it off for a cool $4 million. Hey, why not? It comes with it's own baseball diamond so you can do your Field of Dreams thing. We've got the photos. Check it!

Pat Hentgen’s Embarrassing Theater Room; Wants $2mm [BC Pad Purveyors]

What do we remember about Pat Hentgen's run as a right-handed pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays? Oh, maybe that 1996 season when he won 20 games and had 10 complete games on his way to a Cy Young Award. That was pretty much the end, though. He'd eventually make $37,000,000 over a 14-year career and then buy a house in Tarpon Springs, Fla. with one of the most worthless theater rooms we've ever seen. Pat, seriously, $2mm for that garbage? JUMP!

White Guy Nails Ron Washington Halloween Costume [PHOTO]

First of all, two distractions in this photo: mustache ride bro throwing the peace sign and blonde Top Gunner lining up drinks. Sure, we laugh our asses off at blackface Ron Washington guy with some powder under his nose. But there's something about Heather that's driving us nuts. Such as: would we have to rip that flight suit off or will it easily unzip? Is Heather wearing any panties under that flight suit? All logical questions from some Halloween pic.

Yankees Fan Captures Gaddafi! [PHOTO]

Via BBC: "The BBC's Gabriel Gatehouse has spoken with the man who says he captured Col Muammar Gaddafi. The man was brandishing a pistol he took off the former Libyan leader. The fighter claimed that Gaddafi was hiding in a hole in the centre of the city and said "don't shoot". Meanwhile, Red Sox fan promises to bring the head of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad before Christmas. It really is a rivalry we can all get behind. Kudos to Yankees Nation.

27 Greatest NSFW Gaddafi Is Dead Tweets

Of course it isn't sports related other than the fact that a Yankees fan captured Libyan dictator Gaddafi. (Not even taking the time to look up how to spell his first name.) It's the story of the day and the week. Gaddafi goes from scrapbooking Condi Rice to being holed up in a drainage ditch where Yankees fan found him. Then the rebels kill him. Bad day, brah. Anyway, Twitter went nuts dropping the seven dirty words, which means our editors swing into action. JUMP!

Little Ron Washington Adds Braces To 2011 Costume [VIDEO]

His 2010 Halloween costume stole a nation's heart. Little Ron Washington came out of nowhere to be the cult hero of fans who're smitten by little kids who look like 1970s burnouts. Liam Roybal is back and is kinda required to bust out the old costume even though he's growing up and the chicks aren't digging the same costume two consecutive years. Plus, the Rangers lost last year. Kudos to the news hounds at News8 Dallas for tracking down Little Ron. (Video at SportsGrid)

Derek Jeter Allegedly Drinking With These Ladies At NYC Bar [PHOTO]

Let us start this post by saying that this isn't the first 'report' sent to our inbox about Derek Jeter over the past three weeks. It seems the floodgates are opening up since the split with Minka Kelly. Tonight's report is that Jeter was having drinks with these ladies at some NYC bar. (Far right, you look very familiar. Robbie Cano parties back in the day?) For some reason the ladies are avoiding Jeter, but claim there was plenty of fun that night at the bar. JUMP!

Karina Smirnoff Postpones Wedding To Brad Penny [PHOTOS]

Mediocre Detroit Tigers pitcher Brad Penny, who didn't throw an inning in the postseason, is doing alright off the diamond... or at least he was. Penny is engaged to Dancing With the Stars hotttie Karina Smirnoff, but things apparently aren't looking so rosy for the couple. A trash mag report has surfaced that they're postponing their wedding. You'll never guess why. Here's the reasoning and some hot-ass photos of Karina to prove Penny's ass was out of its league. JUMP!

Zach Greinke’s Wife, Emily, Angry Over NLCS Seats In St. Louis [TWEETS]

For those of you who haven't been following Zach Greinke's wife, Emily, on Twitter you've been missing out on all the fun. She's a former pageant chick. Used to cheer for the Dallas Cowboys and married a Cy Young Award winner. Her bank account has seven zeros. She's hot. Her husband is a complete dork. And she's tired of the horrible seats the St. Louis Cardinals gave Milwaukee Brewers' WAGs during the NLCS. WAR! JUMP!

ARod’s Girlfriend Ella Magers Is Madonna Ripoff [PHOTOS]

The tabloids are buzzing over news and photos of some tramp stamped chick purported to be A-Rod's new girlfriend, Ella Magers, taking the place of Cameron Diaz. Get this, she's ripped just like Cam and Madonna. If we've learned anything from A-Rod's confusing life, it's that he prefers his women to be a couple of bench presses away from being dudes. No, there isn't a name yet. But there is that tat and photos of the two secretly leaving his Miami home. JUMP!

Shannon Richards Is Texas Rangers Biggest Fan – Literally [24 PHOTOS]

Much has been made about the city of Detroit and its sports teams this week while the sports world has pretty much ignored the fact that the Texas Rangers are playing for their second consecutive World Series appearance. Not shabby. And we know another tidbit about Dallas/Arlington - they have much, much hotter women than Detroit. Take buxom (says their all real, boys) Shannon Richards. She's firmly behind her hometown Rangers. Take that, Motor City. JUMP!

Boston Herald Yanks Nancy Brady & Kevin Youkilis Laying Pipe Story? [PHOTOS]

The Boston Herald, known to be hardcore on sleazy gossip stories, is reporting today that Tom Brady's sister, Nancy, and Sox baldy Kevin Youkilis might be laying some Mass pipe. It's true that you haven't heard much from Nancy because she's usually off in Africa taking care of underprivileged kids. But the Herald says she's in town and mingling with the three-time all star at a Patriots game. Smart move, Youk. One step away from bagging Gisele. JUMP!

Report: Ken Rosenthal Straight Pimpin’ In The D Last Night [Morning Twitpic]

Look at Fox Sports Sideline Reporter Ken Rosenthal working the ladies last night during Game 3 of the ALCS. Perfect jacket. White as rice collar shirt. Bow tie just destroying the 100 level housewives from Grosse Pointe Farms. We've seen panty droppers within the media ranks (Mitch Albom, Bill Conlin, Tim Cowlishaw, etc.) but they can't command a bow like Rosey. In other news, the Tigers get a game in the series with 5-2 win. Game 4 this afternoon. Let's get rolling.

Some Asian Guy Thought Mets Were Playing In ALCS [PHOTO]

Rich in Sterling Heights, Michigan sent us this earlier tonight: "Watching the game and couldn't help but notice Asian dude just chillin in his Mets jersey at GM 3 of ALCS. What the f%^& is up with that?" He's being called the Awkward Asian and is believed to be an Endy Chavez fan. Yes, those guys exist. Look, homeslice, at least drop the top button and lose the dress shirt. Maybe haul your ass up the stairs and get a white t-shirt. Name him: mail@bustedcoverage.com

Ryan Howard On Rascal At Whole Foods Near Philly [PHOTO]

Philly blogs are going nuts over this photo allegedly of Ryan Howard on a Rascal at a Plymouth Meeting, Pa. Whole Foods. @Hadji484 is the photographer of record for this shot and doesn't add any context such as canes, food in the basket, etc. For those not in the know, Plymouth Meeting is white suburbia, exactly where rich baseball players would live. Crossing Broad says Howard lives near this exact store. With the Eagles 1-4 this should drive talk radio the rest of the week.

Front Row Amy Is Toast Of Milwaukee NLCS Media Reports [PHOTOS]

BC reader Brandon sent a message this afternoon with news on how Front Row Amy is blowing up with the Milwaukee media. You might remember Amy from last week on Deadspin where she her rack became the Rally Towel from Brew Crew fans. Amy's boobs start bouncing and good things happen. Anyway, the TV dorks wanted an interview last night & of course Amy obliged. NBC 4's Charles Benson had the celebrity beat & met Amy's rack face to face. JUMP!

Bigger Joke: Phillies’ Offense Or That She’s With This Bro [MORNING TWITPIC]

Sad, sad, sad night for Phillies fan. Sure, Diamondbacks fan is kinda disappointed, but they weren't supposed to be a Dream Team with the Dream Team Pitching Staff. Remember this piece on Philly's pitching staff in the NY Times Magazine? Remember how the offense couldn't possibly be shut down? Anyway, moving on, a big steaming pile of football on tap today. BC & Coed are in Knoxville for UT-UGA. Here is your complete TV listing for today.

Hot Texas Rangers Fan Balloon Fetish [Videos]

We've got a hot Texas Rangers fan celebrating her team's AL West championship the only way you can -- by popping balloons with her ass. Oh, wait... maybe there are other ways to celebrate. Anyway, we've never been big into the whole balloon fetish thing, but we''re reconsidering after seeing these videos. Don't worry, they're SFW and we highly recommend you check them out. Hit it!

Detroit Tigers’ Post-Game Celebration, Best Of [Photos, Video]

The Detroit Tigers upended the New York Yankess to earn a spot in the ALCS last night and they had a fitting celebration. It included goggles, Victor Martinez's son, milk, reporter Tom Verducci almost losing an eye and, of course, tons of champagne. We went and found the best of. Here are the photos and video of the Detroit Tigers ALDS celebration. Check it!

Did Tim Lincecum Destroy This San Francisco Rental? [LAWSUIT]

San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum is accused of $200,000 worth of property damage and squatting by a former landlord. The hurler was hit with a lawsuit this week seeking $350,000 in damages. Among other things, Lincecum, or someone who was in his home, allegedly destroyed or stole quite a few items in the furnished apartment. We've got all the juicy details and the complaint for your perusal. Check it!

Rays’ Manager Joe Maddon’s New Dog – Sir Winston Churchill Maddon [PHOTO]

Get knocked out of the playoffs and get a new buddy to hang out with for the rest of the fall and winter. Rays' manager Joe Maddon tweeted this afternoon: "First roster addition of the offseason. Winston Churchill Maddon the 1st." We dare you to say this dog isn't going to destroy Tropicana Field. Dare you. Totally going to go Schottzie like Marge Schott's old St. Bernard. Licking his balls in front of NY Times reporters. Dropping a deuce in front of Jaime Maggio. Oh, it's on.

Baseball Cap Robber First: Richmond Flying Squirrels Holdup! [Cuff ‘Em]

Of course it has been a long time since our last installment in the "Baseball Cap Bank Robbers" series. To be honest, the robbers were getting too boring. Way too many Yankees and Raiders hats. For some reason today seemed like a great day to see what was up with the unemployed jerkoffs. We're into this series for obvious reasons. What makes a robber go with a certain hat during a robbery? Why one team over the other? Today it's the Richmond Flying Squirrels baseball hat. JUMP!

Jason Isringhausen’s 5 Bedroom, $5,000,000 Dump [BC Pad Purveyors]

Seriously, we didn't know that Jason Isringhausen even pitched this year for the New York Mets. No clue. Thought this guy was long gone from the MLB, but now read that he's wanting another contract in 2012. Um, somebody has burned through his cash. Chew on this: Izzy has made just under $60mm in his baseball career. Guaranteed cash. Now he's unloading his $5mm Tarpon Springs, Fla. house. To say it's gaudy is an understatement. JUMP!

97-Year-Old Brewers Fan Freaks Out, Reports TV Remote Stolen [Cuff ‘Em]

First of all, imagine living to be 97-years-old. Then imagine being a Brewers fan all those years. The team didn't even become the Brewers until 1970 when the Seattle Pilots moved to Wisconsin. In other words, being that old and having only watched your team in one World Series sucks. There have only been four playoff appearances. Two in the 20th Century & then 2008, 2011. Now imagine thinking someone stole your remote. Time to call 9-1-1! JUMP!

Get It, Brewers Fan? She Wants You To Smell Her Dairy Air! [Morning Twitpic]

Pretty sure that's a chick. We'll just pretend the hair is pulled back and she's with her mom during yesterday's Diamondbacks victory in Game 3 over the Brew Crew. In other baseball news, the Rays are eliminated and the Yankees are probably going to eliminate the Tigers after that serious goes 2-2. The Daily News went with a simple, "Back In It," headline while the Post took another jab at A.J. Burnett with the "Mr. October" backpage. Let's get rolling!

Detroit Tigers Selling Corks, Bottles From A.L. Central Clincher [PHOTOS]

Last night at Game 3 of the A.L.D.S: Park in Greektown, walk towards Ford Field/Comerica & about two blocks from the ballpark the scalpers start routine. "Who needs tickets?" It was explained that we just needed into the park. "Cheapest you got," was our message. "$160 lower level," responded one. Keep walking. Another dude says be careful, lots of fakes floating. Now near Cheli's, normal looking Detroiter with a SRO. A quick $60 & we're in. JUMP!

N.Y. Tabloid Headline Writers Pretty Sure It’s Up To A.J. [Morning Twitpic]

It's not our normal routine to check the New York headlines but couldn't pass up a peek after the Yankees went down 2-1 in the ALDS. 99% of Yankees' fans hate A.J. Burnett and now he gets the ball tonight against a Tigers lineup that is actually getting production out of Ramon Santiago and Brandon Inge. “The weight of the world isn’t on his shoulders,” Mark Teixeira said of the erratic right-hander whose last start was Sept. 25. “It’s on our shoulders.” Let's get rolling.

How do we know Busted Coverage has a special power over hot women these days? 1. They'll actually email us. 2. They think we're witty, funny & have a great sense of humor. 3. They'll actually shoot exclusive photos of themselves wearing their favorite team's jersey. That's like an Internet trifecta for a sports blogger. That's how we met model/actress Kerry Garvin. She looked us up and kinda wanted to give the Rays some inspiration during the playoff run. JUMP!

Is It Possible To Not Root For Lions & Tigers In 2011? [Morning Twitpic]

For those of you losers who've never spent a sports weekend in Detroit, mark it down on the must-do list. Of course the ride from the airport isn't going to impress you. Of course the ride north on I-75 will take you past an America that America has long forgotten. But the bond that D people have is sports. Fighting the Yankees. Coming back on the Cowboys. This is where sports is happening right now. Tonight we head into the beast for Verlander-Sabathia. Wouldn't dare miss it.

Cardinals Apparently Clinched NL Central, Not Wild Card [Photos]

As we've come to expect from St. Louis, some dimwit posted a bunch of "St. Louis Cardinals 2011 NL Central Champions" posters around the team's locker room before they celebrated their Wild Card berth. We suspect the Milwaukee Brewers, who finished six games ahead of St. Louis, might have something to say about that. Anyway, here's a gallery of the Cardinals celebrating whatever they think they won. Check it!

Do yourself a favor at some point this evening if you haven't already done so. Go watch this video. Cooper Stone is the son of deceased fan, Shannon Stone, who fell to his death trying to snag a ball thrown by Josh Hamilton earlier this season. The family had to deal with the loss of a father and husband, while Hamilton has to live with the guilt. We dare you to watch this and not get a lump in your throat. HT: SportsGrid & @BubbaProg.

The Boston Red Sox melted down like no other team ever has before, blowing the biggest lead for a playoff spot entering September in history. While we're fairly pleased the Sox won't be in the playoffs, BC sorta feels your pain. We also enjoyed a laugh or two at your expense. So, in honor of your meltdown, here are the best A.L.

31 Greatest Moments From Epic MLB Wild Card Race Night [PHOTOS]

It's a night in Major League Baseball history that won't soon be forgotten. ESPN is already firing up the 30 for 30 documentary team. Dan Shaughnessy would totally like a do-over with what will go down as his very own Bill Buckner moment. Four teams had a shot. 3 of the 4 games were unreal. One rain delay. 2 extra inning games. Newspaper deadlines missed. Big headlines. Fans crying. Fans with four TVs in their living rooms. The night had it all. Recap - JUMP!

35 Greatest Steve Bartman Twitter Apologies & Halloween Costumes

Those of you who watched the 30 for 30 documentary, Catching Hell, last night on ESPN know how riveting it was for a character like Steve Bartman to collide with Chicago Cubs baseball history. The character had to be in the right place at the right time. The ball had to find him. He had to be wearing those headphones. The Halloween costume. And in a matter of seconds, Steve Bartman's life changed forever over a stupid foul ball. Twitter responds - JUMP!
