Via BC Afternoon Editor Monty: Former pitcher Kris Benson's hot, dumb stripper wife Anna Benson is back and she's not only looking great, but she's dropping her usual bits of insightful knowledge. Oh, and she's starring in this show called Baseball Wives too, but that's not what's important right now. Anna tells us why Kris got traded by the Mets (her funbags!), how classy she is and her new method of punishing Kris if he cheats. Hey, we've got some fine-ass pics of too! Check it!
This is just the kind of news that'll send the Internet into a feeding frenzy for 2-3 days. We now know that Phillies dork Hunter Pence is dating Playboy Miss May 2007 Shannon James, a Philadelphian. This isn't one of those cases where we're guessing they're dating. James and Pence are dating to the point that they left this morning for a Cabo vacation. Update your WAG lists. Update your Hottest Phillies Wives & Girlfriends lists. Pence hit the hot chick jackpot. JUMP!
Just when you thought ARod really was just getting exercise advice from stripper pole expert Ella Magers, now comes word that the Cameron Diaz ripoff was on Centaur's Miami palace terrace in her bikini. Cameras, yesterday, caught Magers just destroying the Miami sun with grotesque abs and those funky hip muscle lines. A month ago everyone was saying Ella was just 'working out' ARod. This kinda confirms there is more to the relationship. JUMP!
BC Assignment Editor Monty reports: Marty Cordova was a baseball player who probably spent more time on the disabled list than he did on the field, but that doesn't mean he didn't do well for himself. Just take a look at his Henderson, Nevada castle. It can be all yours for a mere $3.25 million and by the look of things, it's probably worth every penny. Either Marty has mob ties or he just got paid a lot for hitting .274. Check it out!
Cardinals World Series hero David Freese could have a wardrobe malfunction tonight at the Country Music Awards. Freese tweets, Bag didn't make my connector to Nashville. I wonder if I can get by presenting with @ErinAndrews in Nike sweatpants and a hoodie?!?!
#cmas. Can't say we'll be spending out Wed. night waiting for these two to hit the stage so someone please send us an email if Freese ends up in the sweatpants. firstname.lastname@example.org
Can we really feel bad for Mike Hampton and his real estate issues in Phoenix? You think Mike felt bad making $124,000,000 over his 16-year baseball career which accounted for one 20-win season and two all-star appearances? Look, Mike's about to lose at least $2,000,000 on this pad and how much more in decorations wasted. Could you rich bastards just settle for the $500k 5 bedroom, 2.5 bath spread? No? Then you deserve to crash and burn. JUMP!
When in Rome, do as the Romans do. A group of MLB players touring Taiwan to play the national time did as the locals do earlier this week, stopping in Snake Alley to drink some shots of snake blood. The players watched the snakes get sacrificed and then threw back shots... some more than others. Whether the blood gave them special powers is debatable, but they dominated in their first game of the series.
You might remember the photo of Katie Siepman from World Series Game 6. She's holding the sign saying "He told me I could have an engagement ring or World Series tickets - Here I am." Yeah, well, that was false. Not true at all, according to an interview with Katie via SI's Andy Gray. True, there is a jacked up personal trainer boyfriend. Been on the fence on how to handle this story. Support the dude or call him a tool for not dropping to a knee? JUMP!
Baseball finally got something right with a World Series Game 7 on a Friday night. In two years you'll be scratching your head trying to figure out who won the 2011 WS. As for the Rangers, God just doesn't think now is the time. As for that gambler who had the Cardinals winning it all at 999/1 at MGM, yeah, he's still hammered off his ass this morning. That $250 bet paid him $250,000. Gonna be a light day. We're in Chicago.
New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is supporting friend and St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa in one of the strangest ways we can fathom -- by wearing his jersey. It's kind of creepy if you ask us, but hey, we don't want to criticize the fashion plate that is Bill Belichick. Or do we? Here's the story of how this diabolical merger of Belichick and La Russa happened. Check it!
What balls on this Big Junk Jeremy Reiland guy, the Cubs fan who infiltrated the Cards locker room with his bro last night. In other news, UGA fan emailed us re: Aaron Murray Photo: Please give me your name and address so I can come and knock on you door and talk to you for a quick second before you start talking more nonsense about Aaron Murray tough guy, don't hide behind your words. Go Florida! Let's get rolling.
The story of porn star Bibi Jones & Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski in a pic took another strange twist overnight. It was just 24 hours ago that we traded emails with Business Insider reporter Tony Manfred over what agent was kinda pimping out Bibi Jones to recruit MLB clients. We threw out the name Terry Bross, who just happened to be Dan Uggla's agent. Jones says she had sex with Uggla. Well, we now know Bross was the guy using porn arm candy. JUMP!
About three years ago, for some reason, we were building up a fake Facebook account using the name Richard Harden. Making friends with professional baseball players was pretty simple since they just figured it was then Oakland A's pitcher Rich Harden wanting to 'Friend' up. For some reason Angels catcher Mike Napoli ended up a 'Friend.' Cool, whatever. Then the other night it reminded us - wait, Napoli, World Series & implants! Time to repost. JUMP!
Now infamous 20-year-old porn star Bibi Jones (@XXXBiBiJones) made even more news this afternoon, according to Business Insider. Reporter Tony Manfred caught up with the slutty provocateur for an interview on comments made Monday to a Boston radio station in which Bibi claimed a baseball agent would hook her up with baseball players after Diamondbacks games. Nothing wrong with that, right? Um, did that agent use the porntress to land clients.JUMP!
Look here, babydoll, you need a casual encounter at Game 6 in St. Louis? Just happens that Kevin the Intern lives in West Lafayette, Indiana & can be there in 4-5 hours. You email us, say the word and his ass will be southbound in a heartbeat. Bring a hot girlfriend we can hook up with. In other news, the Baltimore Ravens dropped a giant deuce on their 2011 season. That offense looks unstoppable. Four field goals beat you? Pathetic. Congrats to those who had Jags +11.5.
Much is being made this afternoon of Tony La Russa's daughter dropping a Twitter bomb last night by referencing a crackhead and Ron Washington. Devon La Russa is backtracking from this: "I saw a crack head doing "The Wash" today. Coincidence? I think not..." That tweet was deleted & followed by: I really truly did not mean to be offensive! It's a phrase I use, meant as a joke. Please don't be offended! Go Cards!!! Now comes mom, Elaine & this. JUMP!
Again, these baseball cap bank robbers keep killing us with their creativity. Normally, a bank robber comes in, makes his demand or passes a note, money is handed over and the transaction process is complete. But then we get Braves Hat Bank Robber and his buddy, Shorty. They have a weird plan that means, when caught, both will be doing hard time on felony robbery convictions. Nice to see Adidas get repped during one of these heists, though. Details - JUMP!
We're kinda digging this new idea from ESPN where they throw a Baseball Tonight set outside ballparks and let drunks yell at future hall of famers. They'll also get a few racists signs into a shot here and there. And then there is Schill-dog. He's never one to shy away from a little tussle with controversy. Take today when some guy called him out for that turkey neck blasting through a collared shirt. Schill-dog isn't afraid to throw down on Twitter. JUMP!
Just look at how the NY Post played the photo of Yankees fan and Libyan rebel holding Gaddafi's gold gun. Perfect placement. Perfect headline. Tabloid journalism at its best. BC used to be in the newspaper business. Want to know why newspapers are getting their asses handed to them? Old fashioned. That secret should be out by now. Spice it up a bit, boys. Go visit Newseum. Count the number of papers who showed the death photo. Then figure out who's broke.
The St. Louis Cardinals are three games away from winning the World Series and making one crazy bastard considerably wealthier. A St. Louis man laid $500 down on two bets picking the Cards to make the Series and win the Series on September 12. Vegas didn't think too much of the Cardinals odds at the time, so the payouts will be substantial. We run you through the particulars. Check it!
Ah, to be a mediocre baseball player with staying power. That's what former Oakland A's and Colorado Rockies shortstop Walt Weiss was and it paid him well. It paid him so well, in fact, he was able to afford 73 acres in Colorado. Now he wants to pawn it off for a cool $4 million. Hey, why not? It comes with it's own baseball diamond so you can do your Field of Dreams thing. We've got the photos. Check it!
What do we remember about Pat Hentgen's run as a right-handed pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays? Oh, maybe that 1996 season when he won 20 games and had 10 complete games on his way to a Cy Young Award. That was pretty much the end, though. He'd eventually make $37,000,000 over a 14-year career and then buy a house in Tarpon Springs, Fla. with one of the most worthless theater rooms we've ever seen. Pat, seriously, $2mm for that garbage? JUMP!
First of all, two distractions in this photo: mustache ride bro throwing the peace sign and blonde Top Gunner lining up drinks. Sure, we laugh our asses off at blackface Ron Washington guy with some powder under his nose. But there's something about Heather that's driving us nuts. Such as: would we have to rip that flight suit off or will it easily unzip? Is Heather wearing any panties under that flight suit? All logical questions from some Halloween pic. (via @babeslovebball)
Via BBC: "The BBC's Gabriel Gatehouse has spoken with the man who says he captured Col Muammar Gaddafi. The man was brandishing a pistol he took off the former Libyan leader. The fighter claimed that Gaddafi was hiding in a hole in the centre of the city and said "don't shoot". Meanwhile, Red Sox fan promises to bring the head of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad before Christmas. It really is a rivalry we can all get behind. Kudos to Yankees Nation.
Of course it isn't sports related other than the fact that a Yankees fan captured Libyan dictator Gaddafi. (Not even taking the time to look up how to spell his first name.) It's the story of the day and the week. Gaddafi goes from scrapbooking Condi Rice to being holed up in a drainage ditch where Yankees fan found him. Then the rebels kill him. Bad day, brah. Anyway, Twitter went nuts dropping the seven dirty words, which means our editors swing into action. JUMP!
His 2010 Halloween costume stole a nation's heart. Little Ron Washington came out of nowhere to be the cult hero of fans who're smitten by little kids who look like 1970s burnouts. Liam Roybal is back and is kinda required to bust out the old costume even though he's growing up and the chicks aren't digging the same costume two consecutive years. Plus, the Rangers lost last year. Kudos to the news hounds at News8 Dallas for tracking down Little Ron. (Video at SportsGrid)
Let us start this post by saying that this isn't the first 'report' sent to our inbox about Derek Jeter over the past three weeks. It seems the floodgates are opening up since the split with Minka Kelly. Tonight's report is that Jeter was having drinks with these ladies at some NYC bar. (Far right, you look very familiar. Robbie Cano parties back in the day?) For some reason the ladies are avoiding Jeter, but claim there was plenty of fun that night at the bar. JUMP!
Mediocre Detroit Tigers pitcher Brad Penny, who didn't throw an inning in the postseason, is doing alright off the diamond... or at least he was. Penny is engaged to Dancing With the Stars hotttie Karina Smirnoff, but things apparently aren't looking so rosy for the couple. A trash mag report has surfaced that they're postponing their wedding. You'll never guess why. Here's the reasoning and some hot-ass photos of Karina to prove Penny's ass was out of its league. JUMP!
For those of you who haven't been following Zach Greinke's wife, Emily, on Twitter you've been missing out on all the fun. She's a former pageant chick. Used to cheer for the Dallas Cowboys and married a Cy Young Award winner. Her bank account has seven zeros. She's hot. Her husband is a complete dork. And she's tired of the horrible seats the St. Louis Cardinals gave Milwaukee Brewers' WAGs during the NLCS. WAR! JUMP!
The tabloids are buzzing over news and photos of some tramp stamped chick purported to be A-Rod's new girlfriend, Ella Magers, taking the place of Cameron Diaz. Get this, she's ripped just like Cam and Madonna. If we've learned anything from A-Rod's confusing life, it's that he prefers his women to be a couple of bench presses away from being dudes. No, there isn't a name yet. But there is that tat and photos of the two secretly leaving his Miami home. JUMP!
Dick tweets: "It is sad when ppl try to destroy a good man's career like Terry Francona . He is a WINNER & A GR8 GUY. Has a son & son in law in Afghan." And later added, "If reports r true Lackey, Beckett,& Lester drinking in clubhouse during games I would suspend them big time. ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING if true!" Things eventually calmed down when Dickie was told they were drinking tall Coors & eating Hooters wings. (@DickieV)
Much has been made about the city of Detroit and its sports teams this week while the sports world has pretty much ignored the fact that the Texas Rangers are playing for their second consecutive World Series appearance. Not shabby. And we know another tidbit about Dallas/Arlington - they have much, much hotter women than Detroit. Take buxom (says their all real, boys) Shannon Richards. She's firmly behind her hometown Rangers. Take that, Motor City. JUMP!
The Boston Herald, known to be hardcore on sleazy gossip stories, is reporting today that Tom Brady's sister, Nancy, and Sox baldy Kevin Youkilis might be laying some Mass pipe. It's true that you haven't heard much from Nancy because she's usually off in Africa taking care of underprivileged kids. But the Herald says she's in town and mingling with the three-time all star at a Patriots game. Smart move, Youk. One step away from bagging Gisele. JUMP!
Look at Fox Sports Sideline Reporter Ken Rosenthal working the ladies last night during Game 3 of the ALCS. Perfect jacket. White as rice collar shirt. Bow tie just destroying the 100 level housewives from Grosse Pointe Farms. We've seen panty droppers within the media ranks (Mitch Albom, Bill Conlin, Tim Cowlishaw, etc.) but they can't command a bow like Rosey. In other news, the Tigers get a game in the series with 5-2 win. Game 4 this afternoon. Let's get rolling.
Rich in Sterling Heights, Michigan sent us this earlier tonight: "Watching the game and couldn't help but notice Asian dude just chillin in his Mets jersey at GM 3 of ALCS. What the f%^& is up with that?" He's being called the Awkward Asian and is believed to be an Endy Chavez fan. Yes, those guys exist. Look, homeslice, at least drop the top button and lose the dress shirt. Maybe haul your ass up the stairs and get a white t-shirt. Name him: email@example.com
Philly blogs are going nuts over this photo allegedly of Ryan Howard on a Rascal at a Plymouth Meeting, Pa. Whole Foods. @Hadji484 is the photographer of record for this shot and doesn't add any context such as canes, food in the basket, etc. For those not in the know, Plymouth Meeting is white suburbia, exactly where rich baseball players would live. Crossing Broad says Howard lives near this exact store. With the Eagles 1-4 this should drive talk radio the rest of the week.
