You know how we know the Cubs are off to a rough, 1-5 start this season? Chuck is able to spring for front row tickets. It's that simple. Chuck runs the Windy City now. The days of assholes in suits hitting a 2:15 first pitch at Wrigley seem to be over. In other MLB news, Boston is 1-5 and there are rumblings of this team being a giant disaster. The scribes are asking players how they'll be received when the Sox open at Fenway on Friday. With jeers, of course. Let's get rolling!
This #RangersRack project could be one of the greatest ideas in Busted Coverage history besides sending Kevin The Intern to the AVN porn convention for his Purdue graduation gift. Should have seen that guy's face. Priceless. Anyway, our old friend @Model_Barefoot is a Rangers fan and wanted to show off some mirror pics she snapped off this evening. Name another site doing sh*t like this in April. 162 games & we're busting out these pics 5 games in. JUMP!
Baltimore Orioles infielder Robert Andino isn't a happy guy. Apparently, playing for one of the league's worst franchises is taking its toll on the guy. Just look at the "Through the years" photo here. Andino used to be a happy, healthy go-getter. Now he's just another used up, beaten down unhappy member of a terrible baseball team. Take a look at the progression. It's quite startling.
Each time new photos of Larisa Fraser drop into our lap all we can think of is whether she's cool with SportsCenter/Baseball Tonight marathons after crazy master bedroom wall sex. Could be the best girlfriend EVER if she's down with what makes us happy. We'll be here waiting when she finally breaks it off with Jew Hardo Ryan Braun which probably isn't happening because he makes all that money & has crown molding in his master bedroom. JUMP!
With the wind chill it's somewhere around 44 in Chicago today. Definitely not shirtless, grab some rays, pound a few Buds and start throwing around $1 bills on some broad in the bleachers weather. But that's exactly what we found Brewers fan up to this afternoon (guessing hammered beyond a normal hammering) when logical bros were in hoodies. $50 says these two finished off the afternoon with some alley wall sex off Waveland.

Ok, so we're now addicted to all things Blue Jays & Rangers fans. Two craziest fan bases in baseball right now. It's sad, too, because Cubs fan used to be great on the Internet. Now they can't even fill the bleachers. Just look at this kid pulling his frosty draft out of the hunting jacket. Yes, we are fully aware & have taken advantage of the 19+ drinking age in Canada. Still. In the NBA, you think the Celtics can shoot 60% in the playoffs? Let's get rolling!
Our fascination with Texas Rangers fans became a 'thing' tonight here at BC HQ. A Fox cameraman was acting as if he was interested in what this kid was playing with on the Rangers dugout, but we know his real intention was to show off this Rangers mom rack. Some of the best racks in Major League baseball and the perfect weather throughout the year to show off those masterpieces. We need your help. See a #RangersRack? Send pics: firstname.lastname@example.org
Urban Dictionary says that 'YOLO' is translated to "You Only Live Once." So why not run out on the Skydome field during tonight's Blue Jays-Red Sox game in your Speedo? Seems like the logical move because you really don't care whether they kick you out of the ballpark for life. Doesn't matter, bro. You only live once. Video as it becomes available. We'll do our best. (HT: @JeehadMm)
Yes, Boston, we know you have a new sideline reporter. Thanks for telling us on Twitter, via email, etc. Of course we were aware of Jenny Dell when she got Heidi Watney's old Red Sox sideline reporting gig. Sure, Jenny has a great collection of photos from her pre-NESN days. But Jenny isn't the only rookie who made her MLB debut last week. Our old friend Britt McHenry did the same for Fox Sports San Diego as the voice of Padres' sidelines. JUMP!
Someone tell us when the Texas Rangers turned their baseball games into giant frat parties where people are in costumes, drunk, eating 2-foot, $26 hot dogs and partying like they're at an NFL game. Last night was Yu Darvish night and there were fans wearing Japanese flag capes, fans with a "Love Yu Long Time," sign and then there was Fake Bubba Watson sitting in the expensive seats. Best ballpark experience? This is like SEC football. JUMP!
So Ozzie Guillen is in the middle of a press conference to extinguish the flames from his rather complimentary statements towards Fidel Castro. Ozzie, being the moron he is, was quoted as saying he "loves Fidel Castro." Yep, that didn't go over very well in Miami where people who left Cuba on boats call home. Ozzie is now suspended 5 games and Cuban-Americans are furious. There are protests and Twitter is buzzing with loads of f-bombs. JUMP!
Can't say we remember a catcher as desirable to Canadian ladies as Blue Jays backstop J. P. Arencibia. The guy is a career .212 hitter and here he is with fans saying it's "B-Jay Time!" Unreal. What did we learn about the MLB last night? Yu Darvish is probably a decent pitcher but got slapped around by a weak Seattle team. Finally, are you an old WCW fan? Yes, the wrestling league. You MUST see these old photos. Let's get rolling!
Imagine walking around Jacobs Field (or whatever they're calling it) and there are like 500 people milling around. Then you see a giant black guy who looks like Rick Ross. You just happen to be wearing your 'Caucasians' Indians shirt. You get closer and realize that's not Ross, it's actually the infamous Mo Vaughn all bundled up for an April Cleveland Indians game. Seriously, no Photoshop used here. WTF is Mo Vaughn doing in Cleveland? JUMP!
Busted Coverage is putting together a personalized baseball jersey project where we track the best and worst from MLB fans. You have 160 games to snap photos of baseball jerseys. BC wants the great ones (exp: #69 jerseys) and the ones like #15 Tebow spotted today outside Camden Yards. Bonus points if a hot chick is wearing the jersey. Send in the pics & if they're worthy you'll get a post: email@example.com
Let's take a journey into the world of community college baseball and let's pretend, maybe the smartest guys don't play there. Case in point. Things get a little chippy in this clip, but ultimately nothing happens even after the benches clear. That is, except for the left fielder, who lays a vicious cheap shot on the unsuspecting guy minding his own business on second base. Way to go, brah! You showed him! JUMP!
Yesterday, we asked for more photos of the body paint chicks at the Miami Marlins home opener on Wednesday night and guess what shows up this afternoon? That's right, close-ups of the body painting process. Everyone can relax, those are nipple stickers. As BC mentioned, $75 gets you into the Clevelander at Marlins Park where you can watch the game, get drunk and even go for a swim with the ladies. New bachelor party destination? Think so. JUMP!
Opening Day in Texas! Big acquisition in the offseason was Yu Darvish and that means the Rangers also acquired a couple new Asian trainers to work on Yu's shoulders. For some strange reason the organization wanted to recognize these new hired guns and that's when hilarity ensues. Legendary P.A. announcer Chuck Morgan gets through one strange name but the second & third don't escape getting butchered. JUMP!
So, Magic you sure buying the Dodgers was the right move for you? Looking a little sleepy last night. Oh, and what's up with being forced to sit with that buffoon Frank McCourt and his rebound beef? What did we learn yesterday from baseball? Hitting will be an issue for a few clubs like: Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Chicago & Miami. In NBA news, good to see a solid effort from Dwight Howard last night. Total dick. How can anyone root for this idiot? Let's get rolling!
So it appears that middle finger salutes from fans will quickly become a 'thing' in Major League Baseball this season. Last night we had Marlins homeboy saluting. Now comes Pirates fan flipping off Phl 17 during what should be a celebration of a new start, green grass & good will amongst fans. Anyway, did you see a fan middle fingering on TV? We want to see them this season. Send them in: firstname.lastname@example.org (via @CrossingBroad)
Maybe one of your Miami bros was texting you last night about his "AMAZING NIGHT" at the Marlins game and telling you all about the new ballpark. How his 100 level seats were "SO F-ING AMAZING" and that there isn't a bad seat in the house. Guess what that bro was missing out on? Body painted go-go dancers at The Clevelander, the center field trendy club that'll cost you $75 a ticket to enter. Here's what you get for that money. JUMP!
Hey, look at us over here having our third Opening Day! Remember us? Baseball? America's Pastime? Nope, no Photoshop involved here. This is actually what was tweeted out by the fine folks @MLB. Sense any desperation? They're only kicking of 'Opening' Day on the same day as Tiger Woods tees off at The Masters and the NFL hears Saints bounty appeals. HELL YES, LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED. Don't forget, $10 tickets to Mets games! (via @MLB)
BC fan Alan in Clearwater sent this last night: "Was watching the pregame with my son and this is what Marlins fan does on Opening Night. Bunch of moron bandwagoners." While middle finger Marlins fan is hilarious, how about Mets fan by Kruk trying to get TV time. That's the real loser. As for Opening Day, that only applies to 7 locales this afternoon. That's right, Opening Day only involves 14 out of 30 teams. Rest of you can wait until Friday. Let's get rolling!
The legend of Jeffrey Loria being a Grade A asshole are legendary and go back to his days of holding the city of Montreal hostage over a baseball stadium deal. His charade eventually found its way to South Florida and the Marlins franchise. He eventually got his wish for Miami taxpayers to foot most of the bill to build Marlins Ballpark, which just happened to open tonight. What does he do on Opening Night? Has Muhammed Ali throw out the first pitch. JUMP!
RAFAEL FURCAL GETTING NAKED IN THE CARDINALS DUGOUT! FURCAL WITH HIS GAME PANTS AROUND HIS ANKLES! ON ESPN! SFW, YET SOMETHING FOR THE LADIES! FURCAL MAKING UNI ADJUSTMENTS! Everyone can relax, just realize that this Marlins Ballpark offers multiple camera angles and this is what you'll be getting to look at this season. JUMP!
Who's in the mood to drop between $595,000 & $19,800,000 on a house these days? Are you a baseball junkie who wants to live in a house where your hero has slept? If you're in the market for a new pad and have the money, we suggest these 12 homes that need a buyer. Help these cash strapped former & current millionaires get out from under houses such as Adrian Beltre & his 15 bath mansion. Here is the ultimate piece of memorabilia. JUMP!
Buried deep in a report from the Dallas Observer on the new food offerings at Texas Rangers games this year was a tidbit about the $26 'Champion' Dog that has taken the ballpark hot dog to the next level. You might remember this beast as the 2-foot meat missile that also includes runny cheese, onions jalapenos and some chili sauce. The big question from us was whether there would be any morons who'd eat the meat. Answer: YES! JUMP!
Baseball gets started for real tonight in Miami where the Marlins 'officially' open their new 'ballpark' that just happens to include a pool in left field. As you can see, the pool has already been christened by a couple of bikini chicks. Tonight the pool 'officially' opens against the Cardinals on ESPN. As for food, you'll be able to purchase lobster rolls, veggie burgers and lots of other crap that doesn't resemble a hotdog. The real fun at Marlins Ballpark - the window washers. Let's get rolling!
We're sure they love him in St. Louis, but former Dodgers shortstop Rafael Furcal is persona non grata in Los Angeles. That's what happens when you hit .197 in your last season with the team. That's probably why Furcal is giving away his Los Angeles house. Dude is about to take a loss of almost $500,000 to get rid of his fancy pad in the suburbs. Frankly, it will be nice to wipe his memory entirely from the area. House photos - JUMP!
Jared Sullinger took a slap to the face from a Kansas player in the second game on the Final Four tonight. The Kansas player went right for the face instead of the ball. The Kansas Jayhawks took on the Ohio State Buckeyes. CBS decided to show us how "flexible" the Kansas cheerleaders were in the pre-game show. Between that and the #kuboobs phenomenon, Kansas is winning in the hottest women. JUMP!
Yeah, they do things a little different down in Mississippi. Like eating fire for breakfast. No bacon and eggs, no hearty bowl of cereal. Fire, people. Ole Miss assistant baseball coach Cliff Godwin demonstrates just that in this video, which we're sure will be a hit with recruits and badasses everywhere. Godwin downs some fire for breakfast and his buddy, who's entirely too serious about the whole thing, yells "game day!" Way to go, brah! JUMP!
The bad news for Phillies pitcher Michael Schwimer this spring came around March 20 when he was sent to team's minor league camp. The good news: Schwimer recently locked up girlfriend and BC favorite Missy Coles to a long-term free agent deal via an engagement ring. What does this mean in the grand scheme of the WAG-dome? Not much other than the fact other ladies coming through the Phillies WAG pipeline must stay on top of their game. JUMP!
Via: A man claiming to have a weapon robbed a Hampden Bank branch at 475 Longmeadow St. of an undisclosed amount of cash Thursday afternoon, police said. The lone suspect walked up to a teller and handed her a note demanding cash, he said. No weapon was shown but it was implied in the note that the man was armed, he said. So this one should be easy. Black dude who looks like David Ortiz...Sox opening day tickets...lots of $20s. GET HIM!
If you do any flying out of San Francisco, you might find a curious sight on the runway -- a themed San Francisco Giants Virgin America plane. Yeah, it sports to hometown team's logo, but it also sports a beard because, why the hell not? The great thing is, you can fly on it. It's not a team charter. It's a commercial airplane. So if you're a huge Giants fan, then this is probably the only way you should travel. JUMP!
Later this summer when the Royals and Angels engage in a bench-clearing brawl you can refer to this video as to why there were fisticuffs. The ball is flying in Tempe today. The Royals ripped three dongs before the Angels batted in the 2nd. That's when the Halos got on the board with back-to-back-to-back shots to make it a 7-3 game. Again, a Spring Training game. The very next pitch from Royals pitcher Everett Teaford was into the back of Peter Bourjos. JUMP!
Via: It’s a bit of a cold case, and this woman certainly looks pretty cold. You may have seen these photos before, because the FBI and police had been looking for this gun toting gal for nearly two a a half years. It was October 9, 2009 when she went storming into the National City Bank on South Mason with a gun in one hand and a knife in the other. She grabbed her cash and headed out the front door. Scared to snitch? We'll turn her in: email@example.com
Those of you just waking up need to know that the MLB season opener is underway in Japan. A's vs. Mariners. Ichiro leading off in his homeland. Goosebumps for those of us raised on baseball. Only problem? You can't watch this game live via your cable provider. Want to watch it live? Gotta order MLB.tv. And the divide between baseball and the NFL/NBA just keeps widening. Oh well, you can watch the replay starting at 9 a.m. EST. Let's get rolling!
