Jason Isringhausen’s 5 Bedroom, $5,000,000 Dump [BC Pad Purveyors]

Seriously, we didn't know that Jason Isringhausen even pitched this year for the New York Mets. No clue. Thought this guy was long gone from the MLB, but now read that he's wanting another contract in 2012. Um, somebody has burned through his cash. Chew on this: Izzy has made just under $60mm in his baseball career. Guaranteed cash. Now he's unloading his $5mm Tarpon Springs, Fla. house. To say it's gaudy is an understatement. JUMP!

97-Year-Old Brewers Fan Freaks Out, Reports TV Remote Stolen [Cuff ‘Em]

First of all, imagine living to be 97-years-old. Then imagine being a Brewers fan all those years. The team didn't even become the Brewers until 1970 when the Seattle Pilots moved to Wisconsin. In other words, being that old and having only watched your team in one World Series sucks. There have only been four playoff appearances. Two in the 20th Century & then 2008, 2011. Now imagine thinking someone stole your remote. Time to call 9-1-1! JUMP!

Get It, Brewers Fan? She Wants You To Smell Her Dairy Air! [Morning Twitpic]

Pretty sure that's a chick. We'll just pretend the hair is pulled back and she's with her mom during yesterday's Diamondbacks victory in Game 3 over the Brew Crew. In other baseball news, the Rays are eliminated and the Yankees are probably going to eliminate the Tigers after that serious goes 2-2. The Daily News went with a simple, "Back In It," headline while the Post took another jab at A.J. Burnett with the "Mr. October" backpage. Let's get rolling!

Detroit Tigers Selling Corks, Bottles From A.L. Central Clincher [PHOTOS]

Last night at Game 3 of the A.L.D.S: Park in Greektown, walk towards Ford Field/Comerica & about two blocks from the ballpark the scalpers start routine. "Who needs tickets?" It was explained that we just needed into the park. "Cheapest you got," was our message. "$160 lower level," responded one. Keep walking. Another dude says be careful, lots of fakes floating. Now near Cheli's, normal looking Detroiter with a SRO. A quick $60 & we're in. JUMP!

N.Y. Tabloid Headline Writers Pretty Sure It’s Up To A.J. [Morning Twitpic]

It's not our normal routine to check the New York headlines but couldn't pass up a peek after the Yankees went down 2-1 in the ALDS. 99% of Yankees' fans hate A.J. Burnett and now he gets the ball tonight against a Tigers lineup that is actually getting production out of Ramon Santiago and Brandon Inge. “The weight of the world isn’t on his shoulders,” Mark Teixeira said of the erratic right-hander whose last start was Sept. 25. “It’s on our shoulders.” Let's get rolling.

Is It Possible To Not Root For Lions & Tigers In 2011? [Morning Twitpic]

For those of you losers who've never spent a sports weekend in Detroit, mark it down on the must-do list. Of course the ride from the airport isn't going to impress you. Of course the ride north on I-75 will take you past an America that America has long forgotten. But the bond that D people have is sports. Fighting the Yankees. Coming back on the Cowboys. This is where sports is happening right now. Tonight we head into the beast for Verlander-Sabathia. Wouldn't dare miss it.

Cardinals Apparently Clinched NL Central, Not Wild Card [Photos]

As we've come to expect from St. Louis, some dimwit posted a bunch of "St. Louis Cardinals 2011 NL Central Champions" posters around the team's locker room before they celebrated their Wild Card berth. We suspect the Milwaukee Brewers, who finished six games ahead of St. Louis, might have something to say about that. Anyway, here's a gallery of the Cardinals celebrating whatever they think they won. Check it!

Do yourself a favor at some point this evening if you haven't already done so. Go watch this video.

It's a night in Major League Baseball history that won't soon be forgotten. ESPN is already firing up the 30 for 30 documentary team.

Those of you who watched the 30 for 30 documentary, Catching Hell, last night on ESPN know how riveting it was for a character like Steve Bartman to collide with Chicago Cubs baseball history.

Cleveland Indians’ Rookie Hazing Includes Thongs, Underroos [PHOTOS]

Swear. One more MLB team gaying it up and we're done for the day. Only so much MLB man-ass a straight blogger can take in one day. Anyway, last night was Cleveland Indians' Rookie Hazing Night. And of course the team has like 32 rookies on its roster so the veterans had to come up with a universal outfit that would be quick, cheap (anyone make over $1mm on this team?) and easy. Party Boy underwear time! Looks like a tribute to Grady Sizemore's coffee cup. JUMP!

Red Sox Rookie Jose Iglesias Hazing NYC Gay Parade Costume [PHOTOS]

The Boston Red Sox are now headed to the 162nd game of the year tied with the Tampa Rays for the A.L.

Marlins Held ‘Buy A Seat, Get Section Free’ Promo Last Night [Morning Twitpic]

Our old buddy, Darren Heitner (2nd best blogger/lawyer combo on Internet; 1st is Friends of the Program because they once took us to an Ole Miss tailgate with cute coeds), was at Joe Robbie last night for the 2nd to last game in this football stadium's history. Marlins fan, obviously feeling nostalgic, came out in droves. There was actually a foul ball down the line and nobody moved an inch to catch it. Just think, those seats have witnessed two World Series. Suck it, Cleveland.

Isis The Amazon Nearly Brawls With Hazed Yankees Rookies [PHOTOS]

She's 6'9" and known as Isis The Amazon. She's kinda well known for her wrestling abilities, but calls herself a sports entertainer. She was supposed to be the next big 'thing' for the WWE, but one thing led to another and she was canned. But Isis The Amazon has continued to go about her business. Last night she just happened to be at the same club where New York Yankees rookies visited on Rookie Hazing Night. Yep, the boys were still in costumes for drinks with Isis. JUMP!

Diamondbacks Grab Mark Grace A Drink After Clincher [Morning Twitpic]

Nothing like seeing the Yankees celebrate another A.L. East title while Kansas City holds Beanie Baby Bobblehead Night. Actually, last night it was Team Photo night for Royals fan.

Jeter made it rain on Kim Jones and Jorge Posada was all confused when he was used as a pinch hitter. Couple pics of the victory scene - JUMP!

Relax, Nats Bullpen Just Jerking Around With Lottery Payouts [PHOTO]

Last night at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia it was comedy night for the Washington Nationals bullpen, according to Dan Steinberg at D.C. Sports Bog. It seems someone figured out where the ballpark signage crew keeps their extra numbers. Time to create a stampede down to Rick's Carryout. But, fear not, Mega Millions Nation. This just happens to be a hoax. Don't freak out and start rounding up $100s from co-workers. We have the real lottery values - JUMP!

Ric Flair Visited Fenway Last Night – WOOOOOOOO! [Morning Twitpic]

The Nature Boy was in Boston last night to hopefully bust the Sox out of the funk that has allowed the Tampa Rays to get within two games of the A.L. wild card lead. He brought along a TNA championship belt and the classic Nature Boy entertainment value. That meant Ric was given the responsibility of introducing the Sox lineup. Ever the entertainer, he ended the lineup with at least three WOOOOOOOOs! He then watched the Sox split a DH.

‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ To Be Shown At Wrigley Field In October; Bleachers $10

Groupon, the site that loves to bombard your inbox with super-duper-can't-pass-up deals, has pretty much taken a giant machete and chopped off the head of Baseball History.

Hotter POA: Bo Peep Garrett Richards Or Smurf Stephen Strasburg? [HAZING]

Angels pitcher Garrett Richards may have one-upped the Washington Nationals and Stephen Strasburg's Papa Smurf outfit.

Adrian Beltre 15 Bath Mansion Still For Sale: $19.8mm [BC Pad Purveyors]

Once again we are dumbfounded by the excess by which a baseball player lives his life. You think Adrian Beltre really needs 15 bathrooms for a seven bed house? You think Adrian drops his morning deuce in a different toilet for two consecutive weeks in the offseason? Mr. Beltre, who has earned/will earn nearly $88mm in his MLB career, is trying to unload his California mansion. The cost? Just $19.8 million. And the man cave sucks balls. JUMP!

Pretty sure he pronounces it Anus. How 'bout them Yankees? Those guys are huge all around the globe, including Libya where we've now spotted two rebels sporting Yankees caps during their journey to killing or eliminating the Gadhafi clan. Maybe you remember this surface-to-air missile launcher from back in March. We efforted Anas Ahmed el Houderi's Facebook account to see what he think of A.J. Burnett. No dice. Seems Anas is too busy.
