Did you expect big celebrities from yesterday's all-star softball game in Kansas City? Only three chicks of importance even showed up: Chrissy Teigen, Jennie Finch & former American Idol contestant Haley Reinhart. Yeah, HUGE year for this game that should be mothballed. So of course all eyes were on supermodel Teigen. She obliged by kissing Steve Garvey & some local guy. JUMP!
IT'S HOME RUN DERBY TIME! BACK, BACK, BACK, IT'S NOT LANDING UNTIL IT HITS EASTBOUND I-70. THAT BALL IS HEADED FOR OKLAHOMA! BACK, BACK, & THIS ONE IS GONNA GET WET! (Enter your variation of Chris Berman call here.) Anyway, a bunch of foreigners & Prince Fielder will try to hit dongs tonight. Meanwhile, Wisconsin already held its dizzy bat HR Derby. It went well. JUMP!
When the Yankees and Red Sox face off, drama follows. Usually it occurs on the field, but with the Yankees winning 3 our of 4, this weekend's drama came from a scrub. Red Sox relief pitcher Vincente Padilla ran off his mouth at former teammate and current Yankee Mark Teixeira. The comments ranged from sexist to racist, with Padilla calling Teixeira a woman and saying he was prejudice against Hispanics. Of course Twitter went nuts. JUMP!
Remember, parents, little Bryce is 99.9% likely going pro in something other than baseball so no need to fight other parents at a Little League game. What? He might get a $50,000 college scholarship from baseball? Hell yes, throw down on the opposing parents! Here we go, welcome to Georgia where parents don't mind whoopin' some ass at a game. Get it, biggins'. JUMP!
Told you so. We promised that Bryce Harper would be an injury replacement for Tuesday's all-star game and it happened this weekend. Fans finally have a reason to watch the game to see if he separates a catcher's shoulder with a collision at the plate like his hero, Pete Rose. In tightrope walking news, remember how we ripped ABC & that Wallenda dude for wearing a harness? Yeah, so some Chinese dude fell off a tightrope this weekend. BALLS! Let's get rolling!
As we told you this morning, Kate Upton was drinking in a suite at last night's Detroit Tigers game. It turns out that suite was Justin Verlander's suite. Yes, that Verlander guy from the MLB 2K commercials and your reigning Cy Young. A little investigating reveals that Upton in Verlander's suite wasn't by coincidence. These two are actually sharing some special time, according to Detroit locals. JUMP!
Look, I could totally care less that an underage Kate Upton was pounding draft beers last night at the Detroit Tigers game. What underage chick out there hasn't been hammered at a baseball game before her 21st birthday. Big f-ing deal! The real story here is that Kate drinking draft beer with that body is a recipe for disaster. Let's be honest, that beer is going straight to her gut & thighs. Not cool. JUMP!
The Stanley Cup is on its European leg of the Kings victory tour so why not stop in Slovenia to spend the day with Anze Kopitar. The center took the Cup to the golf course, on a tour of the city & to church for a cleansing. In MLB news, Bryce Harper is still waiting for someone to get injured to get a pass to the all-star game. WOULD SOMEONE GET THEIR HEAD OUT OF THEIR ASS! FIND A SPOT FOR THE GUY. Complete horseshit from this sport. Let's get rolling!
Remember when Blue Jays 3B Brett Lawrie went nuts on an umpire for a strike three call earlier this season? Remember how Brett slammed his helmet into the ground and it promptly hit umpire Bill Miller on the hip. Sensing a solid chance to make a buck, the Blue Jays are now trying to sell that helmet for $1,000 in their team store. Nope, not kidding. $500 less for Lawrie's helmet than Cam Newton's BCS pants. JUMP!
Kudos to the Pittsburgh Pirates this morning. Your hat was being worn by Euro soccer stud Kevin-Prince Boateng yesterday in Sardinia while he was on holiday with the World's Hottest Soccer WAG, Melissa Satta. Sure, more guys figure the story here is Satta's ass in this bikini. Wrong. How the hell does Boateng, a German, end up wearing a Pirates hat. Does he realize the Bucs have a 1 game N.L. Central lead? JUMP!
How great is Bryce Harper? Seriously, how great? The guy isn't even 20 yet and already has baseball by the nuts, just tickling your sack with his greatness. All-star game at 19? It should happen by Saturday at the latest. Anyway, BC reader @A_Kerala wants you guys to see what's going on with Harper's semi-tricked out Mercedes AMG. By the balls, people. JUMP!
Reader email from Ken in Coon Rapids, Minnesota: "You guys see the dumb Tigers broad flopping out her implants during 5th inn. of last night's game? Kid Rock's sister." Yep, went straight to our MLB TV account and there she was. Kid Rock's sister flopping out her boobs, but it sure looks like a bikini under that half-shirt to us. JUMP!
And the husband let her have the aisle seat. Ain't that some bullshit on the 4th of July? Of course the aisle is a man's domain. It's where he acts as an air traffic controller. The one who flags down the beer guy. The one who inspects the poon walking into his section. Grow a pair, dad. (via @Merredith). In NBA news, Steve Nash is headed to the Lakers, if you didn't hear. Here's how a guy with only 4,200 Twitter followers got 3,500 RTs out of the news. Insane. Let's get rolling!
Bryce Harper debuted his new Under Armour "Don't Be A Clown Bro" shirt during a MLB Network post-game interview this afternoon, but that wasn't the real highlight. The original Nats bro, Jayson Werth, interrupted the interview with a shaving cream pie to Harper's face. Yes, Bro Harper got clowned by Bro Werth and Internet bros totally lost it. Who's rushing out to get one of these shirts? JUMP!
We continue to beat the drum that if a hot chick wants to make it on the Internet these days, she has to get baseball themed pics into her portfolio. She should own the month of July. She should own the 4th of July. If you are a model and not in our 4th of July Baseball Babes gallery, there's a good chance your Internet modeling career is over. These ladies understand what men want on the 4th. Baseball. Skin. Bikinis. Jump!
Via: One man was shot and another hurt as he fled a robbery Monday at a Fort Worth game room, police said. The robbers, described as four men armed with two pistols, a shotgun and a rifle, are believed to be responsible for several other game room robberies, including two last month, Fort Worth robbery Sgt. Joe Loughman said. The latest robbery occurred about 4 a.m. Monday at the Big Ten Arcade. Know these punks? email@example.com
Hmm, wonder how Joslyn James feels about the new playoff system that obviously punishes Bama by making them play an extra game to win national titles? Love the new hair, by the way. Easy to maintain in the summer. (via @Joslyn_James). In MLB news, the Home Run Derby teams are set. What, you aren't pumped up to watch Mark Trumbo & Carlos Gonzalez (who?) go deep? Meanwhile, everyone is coming out of the closet this week. Let's get rolling!
And we have a new war between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia thanks to Tim McGraw's show at Heinz Field on Saturday. What happens when a fan hands Tim a Phillies jersey in honor of his father, Tug? Pittsburgh fans lose their s**t. Does it matter that the Pirates have sucked for 20 years? Nope. Tim was booed during a song that is a tribute to his father. JUMP!
The smell of hot dogs. The green grass. 45,000 fans on their feet in the 9th inning. Draft beer on a 90-degree day. It's that time of year when we suddenly forget - a little bit - about football and think about our youth when going to a baseball game meant autographs, ice cream batting helmets and the possibility that dad would cave to your cotton candy demands. Now we're all grown up and it's about baseball, beer & babes. Today we cover the babes. JUMP!
Roger Clemens turns 50 on August 4. Mid-life crisis time! So there was the Rocket this weekend, at Rice University, coaching some summer baseball in the coolest pair of camo cargo shorts you'll ever see on a guy who just beat the U.S. government in a perjury trial. Details on Clemens coaching gig are slim. That's not why we're here. The story has to be the camo shorts. And, do we detect new frosted tips? JUMP!
Of course we weren't glued to the MLB.tv account yesterday during the 7th inning of the Brewers-D-backs game when some (assuming) drunk guy decided to get cozy with Front Row Amy. The big news: shirtless guy was tweaking his nipple. Yes, we'd love to show you the video, but MLB goons have that lock on our YouTube account so you get screencaps of nip tweaker. JUMP!
Via: The FBI is searching for a suspect accused of robbing a Wells Fargo bank in southeast Houston Saturday morning. The man has been dubbed the ‘Abe Lincoln Bandit’ because of his distinctive beard. Around 11:35 a.m., the suspect entered the bank on 11102 Scarsdale and handed the teller a note demanding money. He then allegedly lifted his shirt to display a pistol stuck into his waistband. Scared to turn in Abe? We will: firstname.lastname@example.org
Just as us Americans celebrate July 4th as our national holiday of gaining our independence from those British assholes, Canada also has a similar day. It's called Canada Day & takes place each year on July 1. Gregg Zaun, a former Jays catcher turned broadcaster, might have been born in California, but he knows how to win over the hearts and mind of the maple leafers. Give them some Don Cherry on a blazing hot day in Toronto. Let's get rolling!
A reader once complained to us that we did way too many Baseball Cap Bank Robber Cuff 'Em stories and this guy couldn't understand why BC cared about some guy robbing a bank in a baseball hat. Today is the payoff. Today we sit back in our chair and exhale because this right here is why we get up in the morning. Humanity. To find a guy who accented his giant fake beard with a Phillies cap. JUMP!
Shall we start the morning with a *slow clap* for the Target Field security chick taking down streaker bro by the finger tips? I think we shall. Just look at this effort. You won't see that from a Minneapolis cop working OT at like $60/hr. Someone get this chick a raise. In other MLB news, how about this Aaron Hill kid. He hits for cycle for the 2nd time in two weeks. This guy now has four cycles in his baseball career. Let's get rolling!
Just 10 days ago Jose Canseco went on the Worcester Tornadoes disabled list to "take some time to heal my injuries," according to the disgraced Bash Brother. That was June 18 at 11:34 p.m. - on Twitter. Ironically, at 8:02 p.m., some Worcester local ran into Canseco playing a softball game. You know, because nothing helps heal injuries like swinging a softball bat. JUMP!
The big news today in Boston? Clay Buchholz went to a party at Foxwoods last night after being recently released from Mass. General where he was battling esophagitis. What's the big issue? Buchholz is on the 15-day DL and the Sox are in Seattle. Boston media is obviously having a slow week because this is dominating sports talk & is now leaking over into the newspapers. JUMP!
How does ESPN2 fill programming in June after college baseball & softball are finished? Men's professional softball! It was Team USA vs. Team USA Futures and the youngsters won a thriller, 38-37, after Team USA had the tying run thrown out at home to end the game. Still efforting to find out if the dugouts had keg fountains. In other softball news, last night the Mets beat the Cubs, 17-1. Solid night from Jeff Samardzija. Only gave up 9 over 4 1/3. Let's get rolling!
Umpire Mike DiMuro has to be the biggest waste of MLB umpire flesh, right? By now you know what happened in last night's Yankees-Indians game. Yankees outfielder Dewayne Wise goes into the left field stands to catch a foul ball & clearly doesn't make the catch. Replay shows a fan in the vicinity bend over, pick up the ball and hold it up over his head. Does DiMuro ask Wise to show the ball? Nope. Of course Twitter erupted. JUMP!
The Giants & Dodgers wrap up a 3-game series at Pac Bell today at 3:45 EST and it'll also mark the end of the San Francisco police department's undercover program - until the next series. Cops have been dressing up as Dodgers fans, just waiting for morons to attack them for wearing Dodgers gear. Sounds like enticement to us. S.F. cops say that's not the case at all. JUMP!
Guarantee only a select few men have that Polo shirt in their closet. Oh, and when did Rob Ryan buy that Rangers hat? Yesterday at lunch? (via @DCStarJEllis). In other baseball news, here's another play that'll eventually move MLB to replay. Dewayne Wise was credited with catching this foul ball during last night's Yankees-Indians game. Watch how bad this call was. Not only did Wise not catch the ball, it isn't even clear that he walks away with the ball. Let's get rolling!
Derek Jeter turns 38 today & should be commended by all those athletes out there who have multiple divorces and children with multiple women. Jetes never fell for the bait. The guy never succummed to the altar & that means he can live a great life dating whomever he wants. Of course you guys thought he'd marry Minka Kelly. Nope, threw her right back to her B-list life. Don't feel bad for Minka, she joined a long list of throwbacks. JUMP!
Sure, Travis Wood and his batting helmet was the talk of Twitter on Monday night, but the pitcher got the last laugh with seven shutout innings and a W against the Mets. Reminder: When your team is 15.5 games out of 1st in the N.L. Central, & has the worst record in baseball, all it takes to become a Twitter story is a logo fail. In other baseball news, Arizona won the College World Series. Hell yes it was a slow Monday night. Time to ramp up NBA Draft news. Let's get rolling!
Ever see a minor league baseball game called off in the 8th inning when the ballpark's outfield fence was destroyed by a violent thunderstorm? Now you have. This is The Diamond in Richmond, Virginia. The home team, the Squirrels, were facing the New Britain Rock Cats when said thunderstorm rolled through the area and left a pummeled fence. Team officials estimate 4,500 fans were at the game. JUMP!
Porn star Jessica Lynn didn't come out and tweet, "I want to have sex with Dodgers pitcher Chris Capuano," but it was pretty close according to emailer Colby T. who sent us an urgent email last night. "What does having an all star level season get Chris Capuano? Porn stars, of course," Colby wrote. Wait, wait, wait just a minute. How the hell does a porn star randomly seemingly want to get banged by Capuano? This is nuts. JUMP!
Unless you have been totally out of the loop the past 24 hours, you already know that the Red Sox have traded fan favorite Kevin Youkilis to the Chicago White Sox. To make the trade even harder to swallow, Youk helped contribute to the Red Sox win yesterday & walked off the field to a standing ovation. Red Sox Nation took to Twitter to let the front office and Bobby Valentine know just how pissed off they were with this latest move. JUMP!
