All 100 Times Jeter's Name Was Mentioned On Fox—And All Zero Of Gwynn's

Lest you forget, Fox was sure to make you aware that this is Derek Jeter's final season in the majors. The Captain's name was spoken no fewer than 100 times on tonight's All-Star Game broadcast, but at what cost? That of remembering people like Tony Gwynn, Don Zimmer, or Bob Welch—none of whom were mentioned during… » 7/16/14 12:56am 7/16/14 12:56am

Adam Wainwright Had To Apologize For Saying He Grooved A Pitch To Jeter

This is insane. Adam Wainwright made a comment to reporters after his outing was complete that he grooved Derek Jeter a couple of meatballs. It was harmless. Then it became a thing because Derek Jeter has to get All-Star Game hits on the level? I literally have no idea. But then, Adam Wainwright showed up on FOX… » 7/15/14 11:43pm 7/15/14 11:43pm

Mets Approached Cougar Site About Stuffing Ballot Box For David Wright

When the first vote totals for the MLB All-Star Game were released last week, David Wright was in second. A desperate Mets marketing department didn't want Wright to lose to Pablo Sandoval for the second year in a row, especially not with the game being held at Citi Field.

What Did Sportswriters Think About Kansas City Barbecue? We Investigate.

The MLB All-Star Game is one of the few times during the season when baseball writers across the country congregate in a single city. When that happens, their conversations inevitably turn from their hatred of their jobs to the one thing that keeps them going through their existence: food.
