Dexter Fowler Takes Double Play Ball Off The Head [VIDEO]

Let's start off by saying this: Dexter Fowler takes this like a champ! When trying to breakup a double play in a game against the Giants, Fowler slid in a little higher than normal. The end result was a relay throw to the top of the head. Shortstop Brandon Crawford slung the ball at full velocity and hit Fowler square in the head. Now this has nothing on the Brandon McCarthy incident, but it's still impressive seeing Fowler walk away like nothing happened. JUMP!

ESPN Totally Has Blonde Moment & Leaves Out The 89-Win Reds [Morning Twitpic]

It's all good, the Reds only have an 11-game lead on 2nd place St. Louis and are tied for the best record in baseball. Oh, and since when did the N.L. East send two division champions? We totally understand what they were doing here. Just a blonde moment (via @CY937). In NFL news, Jermichael Finley's agent doesn't think much of Aaron Rodgers as a leader. Here's the agent's Twitter account if you want to wade through his drivel. Let's get rolling!

BJ Cubs Fan Pretty Good At Giving Fake BJs [VIDEO]

Who in their right mind is going to a Pirates-Cubs game in the middle of September? One of the funniest baseball fans of the 2012 campaign, that's who. In the 9th inning of a boring 3-0 Pirates win, this Cubs fan came through and saved the day for any viewers that were still tuned in. Through nearly two full at bats this bro was right in the line of vision making BJ motions with both hands. Since Wrigley's security was probably drunk, they took a while to respond. JUMP!

Kate Upton Still Dating Justin Verlander, Spotted In Chicago [PHOTOS]

Yep, Kate Upton and Justin Verlander are still dating and going strong. While Upton has gone quiet since Detroit went nuts over the possibility of their ace dating the most notorious swimsuit model of a generation, it seems things are moving along just fine with baseball's royal couple. The two were spotted last week - in daylight for the first time - during a stroll along Michigan Ave. Relax, Tigers fan, Verlander didn't pitch that night. JUMP!

Baltimore Orioles Rookie Hazing Includes Wei-Yin Chen As An Asian Fan-Girl [PHOTOS]

When was the last time Orioles rookies were smiling during rookie hazing in mid-September? Not in the 21st century. At 81-62, the Orioles are tied for the A.L. East lead and having a great time dressing rookies in panties, Chinese takeout boxes and tutus. There was pitcher Wei-Yin Chen (12-9, 4.00) dressed as a Chinese fangirl, his trainer in a hotdog costume and his translator in the Chinese takeout box. Rookie hazing night has never been so glorious for the O's. JUMP!

Manny Ramirez Finds God, Graduates From Miami Mega-Church School

USA Today reporter Jorge L. Ortiz has a story out this week on Manny Ramirez, how he's handling retirement and what the future holds for a guy who failed a PED test in 2011. Instead of telling Ortiz about pounding booze at Club LIV, Ramirez used 'God' in a sentence. In fact, we've figured out that Manny is going to church and even graduated from schooling at the infamous Segadores de Vida church in Hollywood, Fla. JUMP!

Orioles 3B Manny Machado Pulls Hidden Ball Trick On Rays [VIDEO]

Huge fan of the movie Rookie Of The Year? We are too, that's why it's great to see rookie Manny Machado pulling the infamous "hidden ball trick" that Henry perfects in Rookie Of The Year. It's not exactly the same, but along the same lines. Machado is charging a rolling ball down the third base line and appears to whip the ball to first to catch the runner. Low and behold, Machado faked out the runner on third, nabbing him rounding the base. JUMP!

What If James Loney Looked Like Paul Konerko? [Morning Twitpic]

James Loney would be pale white, listen to Nickelback and make a bigger paycheck. Paul Konerko's contract will pay him $12M in 2012 while Loney will only make $6.375M. (via @bigpapi224). In college basketball news, Jim Calhoun will retire today. UConn is banned from the 2013 tournament so this is perfect timing from Jimbo.

Padres Security Guard Ruins SportsCenter Top 10 Moment For Ball Girl [VIDEO]

Enter cowardly security guard. This guy is there to protect people and he scurries off like a little kid, botching the ball girls catch attempt! JUMP!

Joe Nathan’s Tony Romo Halloween Costume [PHOTOS]

Joe Nathan, a Giants fan, last night paid up on his NFL regular season opener bet with Rangers pitcher Mike Adams by wearing the official Tony Romo uniform during BP. Notice: official Nike Romo jersey. The bet was to wear the uniform through batting practice and let lots of fans take photos of the shaming. Nathan, born in Houston, was raised in New York.

Kudos to @DominicGallo for actually sitting through last night's World Series of Poker episode. Nope, that's not Phil Helmuth.

Rockies Pitcher Jhoulys Chacin Drops Throw From Catcher; Blows Game [VIDEO]

The Braves took on the Rockies yesterday in Atlanta. It was a pretty uninteresting game for the most part and was 0-0 heading into the bottom of the second. Rockies catcher Wilin Rosario was routinely tossing the ball back to pitcher Jhoulys Chacin when something odd happened. Chacin just totally missed the ball and it went rolling towards second base, allowing Juan Francisco to score from third! JUMP!

The Skinny Barry Bonds Summer Of Hiking & Biking [PHOTOS]

Barry Bonds has to be one of the strangest retired black baseball players in MLB history. The guy made $188 million over his baseball career, battled through courts and now unwinds by cycling through Colorado and hiking mountains. That's totally the craziest rich black guy retirement plan we've ever heard of. Name another retired black MLB player going shirtless on Colorado backcountry hikes. You can't. Face it, Skinny Barry Bonds is a lean beast. JUMP!

Snotty Girl Gets Baseball At Marlins Game…With Help Of Her Hot Mom [VIDEO]

If you are expecting sympathy from us in this post, stop reading now. This girl is infuriating. She didn't get a ball that she thought she deserved so she threw a hissy-fit for an inning. The girl was literally screaming and flailing her arms until she got her baseball. Props to the players for ignoring her too. Flat-out not giving the girl the time of day...that is until her MILF of a mom flashed some cleavage. Never seen a baseball get tossed into a crowd that fast before! JUMP!

Ozzie Guillen Has Lost His Goddamn Mind On Twitter…Or Was Hacked

And that's just the tip of the iceberg of what has been posted today to Ozzie Guillen's Twitter account.

The Yankees held a 10-game lead in the AL East on July 18. Lets just say things have changed. The Yankees are in an ugly slide, going 19-25 since then. The Bronx Bombers find themselves in a tie with the division rival Orioles who are 29-15 in the same span. Are the Yankees the new Mets? Could they possibly blow the division lead this late in the season? Twitter was going nuts last night as Yankees fans prepared for the worst. JUMP!

Jim Edmonds Selling His 2007 Mercedes-Benz S600 For $80,000! [PHOTOS]

It looks like retirement is hitting Jim Edmonds a little harder than he expected. With his career earnings from baseball in the $90 million range, it's hard to believe Edmonds could possibly be strapped for cash. Why then is he selling his 2007 Mercedes Benz S600...for $100,000 less than he put in it?! The car doesn't even have 25k miles on it! Is it possible that Jimmy Baseball has burned through his fortune? Does he need this $80 grand more than we think? JUMP!
