Matt Cain Unloading S.F. Bro Pad With Ikea Kitchen At Loss; $1.8MM [PHOTOS]

Matt Cain is due for a pay raise after the 2012 season and he'll either get a huge contract from the Giants or sign elsewhere as a free agent. So what's the logical move at this point? Sell that $1.8mm house you've been slumming in while playing in San Fran. He'll make $15,000,000 this season and will probably demand at least that over 6-7 years in his next contract. Is this a move to rid himself of a house before leaving for NY? JUMP!

Still working our way through the piles of photos from Super Bowl XLVI & had to post this one of Chris Berman not exactly impressed by @EastSideDave.

Derek Lowe Selling $3.5MM Pad With Derek Lowe Painting In Bedroom [PHOTOS]

That's a painting of Derek Lowe pitching for the Dodgers hanging in one of the spare bedrooms in his Atlanta home that is now on the market for just shy of $4,000,000. Why is Derek selling? Good chance it has to do with his trade to Cleveland and the fact that he won't be needing a 5,000 sq. ft. home in the Buckhead neighborhood. As for the painting, we figure if you pay full price he'll throw it into the deal. JUMP!

UPDATE: Terry Francona Went Out To Red Lantern Friday Night, Minded His Business

Had a phone conversation with Terry Francona this afternoon concerning his activities at the Red Lantern bar on Friday night. Terry says he was out and about, took about 30 photos with fans but he never bought drinks for any chicks and was pretty much just minding his business. There were some unscrupulous rumors on Twitter that the ex-Sox skipper needs to put to bed. We'll believe Terry's word over some dumb broad any day of the week. JUMP!

Call him a jerkoff all you want. If there's one thing that's becoming apparent with the wallet of ARod, it's that the dude doesn't plan on going broke anytime soon.

Internet’s Very First Tebowing Snow Sculpture [Morning Twitpic]

They're even using Tebowing snow sculptures on the slopes to get some damn snow. Smart move, but does Mother Nature really care about some option-read QB from the Broncos? If you care & are a degenerate: the Pro Bowl OVER/UNDER is up to 73. In Prince Fielder news, SI's Andy Gray unearthed this gem of the Tigers new $200mm man as a chubby kid throwing the ball with Alan Trammell. Dude will make $65,000 every single day for next 9 years.

Because Lawrie was engaged in the fall, got disengaged from this chick & is now having tattoos removed. DRAMA! JUMP!

Sammy Sosa Taking White Face To Next Level [PHOTOS]

Sammy Sosa's bukkake face is back in the news down in Columbia. Why? It has something to do with baseball, a key to the city, blah, blah, blah. The real news is that some newspaper photographer snapped a shot of Sammy, the paper ran it and his face is the same shade of cream as the shirt he's wearing. Put that guy's face on bright white newsprint & he'd look whiter than Casper. This skin condition is officially out of control. JUMP!

There's one of two things going on with John Smoltz right now: (a.) He's getting bored with his 18,000 sq. ft. Georgia house on a golf course, or (b.) his ass is leaking cash. See, there was news in 2011 that Smoltz had some trouble with real estate in Wyoming where he went through a "strategic foreclosure." That brings us to the news that Smoltzy has put this gigantic f-you pad on the market for only $7.2mm. Dude made $135mm in his career. Something is going on here. JUMP!

Grady Sizemore Will Marry Playmate Brittany Binger [PHOTOS]

Great news for baseball and it has nothing to do with where a free agent will be heading in February for pitchers/catchers.

You know you want it! So we're going to give it to you. We've got more Alex Rodriguez with his latest conquest Torrie Wilson. Guess who looks better half naked? Well... actually, of course Torrie looks better half naked, but here's the thing.

Take a look for yourself.

UCLA Cheerleaders Only Exciting Part Of Fight Hunger Bowl [PHOTOS]

Even the homeless who were fed probably didn't even have a good time watching the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl between the UCLA Bruins and the Illinois Illini. The game was filled with absolutely no offense, terribly ran fake field goals, and apparently these three bros were the only ones who gave a shit. Thank God the UCLA cheerleaders were on the sideline looking good otherwise this game would have been a dumpster fire. The Illinois team did completely miss their coach with the Gatorade bath. JUMP!
