R.A. Dickey Cannot Be Contained, Pops Off Another 1-Hitter! [Morning Twitpic]

If R.A. Dickey isn't the N.L. all-star game starting pitcher it'll be a travesty. Hell yes we want to see R.A. lobbing 80 mph knucklers to Josh Hamilton.

So I open the BC mailbox this morning and have some stupid spam message from MLB.com with 'Adam Lambert' in the subject line.

Can Anyone Spell Twins Jeff Manship’s Name Correctly Or Is Manship Too Quirky?

Jeff Manship is a Twins pitcher. Just a reliever trying to make it in professional baseball. Not bothering anybody.

God bless Pete Rose. I remember growing up in Dayton, Ohio in the early 80s, learning how to play baseball and being mesmerized by the only guy who gave maximum effort and didn't give a damn who got in his way was Charlie Hustle. Loved that. And then those stupid bums at MLB had to go and ruin the fun. Flash-forward to this past weekend in Vegas where @Drew_Hallett spotted our hero in his element - a Vegas sportsbook. JUMP!

You ever see a black dude dropping money on stupid shit like a Bonds ticket collection? Hell no you don't. Baseball dying one dead white guy at a time.

Why was he at the Indy 500 at 84? Because someone likely paid him to be there. The guy had never been to the 500 in his 84 years. The smart play here from party organizers is to have a chick rubbing her rack on that FUPA. Keep the guests happy. Love it. (via @jenbeaver)

Aroldis Chapman Hotel “Escort” Chick Claudia Manrique Is Married; Inside Job?

We're not going to say Aroldis Chapman's new "girlfriend" Claudia Manrique set up his Cuban ass, but there's a sneaking suspicion that the hotel room robbery the other night was an inside job.

Claudia's did. JUMP!
