Red Sox Fan Dives Across His Row For Foul Ball, Doesn't Get It

This Red Sox fan just straight-up dove across half the people in his row trying to get a foul ball like he was a member of the secret service trying to take a bullet for the President. He landed on his wife (presumably) and another woman and small child in the adjoining seats. Look how pissed she is! » 8/23/14 10:41am 8/23/14 10:41am

Pitcher's Wife Calls Will Middlebrooks "Butthole" For Breaking Up No-No

A day after losing Cy Young candidate Garrett Richards for the year to a freak knee injury, the Angels got an unexpected lift: rookie starter Matt Shoemaker stepped up with the game of his life.

Probably because no one saw Chasing Amy and at some point… » 8/16/14 10:03am 8/16/14 10:03am

David Ortiz Tracking Down A Pop Fly Could Take All Night

David Ortiz is a designated hitter who only really plays first base in interleague contests away from Fenway. Tonight, the Red Sox were in Cincinnati, which sports a decent amount of foul territory by first base.

John Lackey Is A Cardinal, And The Red Sox's Rebuild Is Going Great

The Red Sox are apparently on some sort of accelerated turn-of-the-century-Marlins plan, where they win, bottom out, and rebuild, but it only takes them a year to go from peak to trough and back again. After landing Yoenis Cespedes earlier today, Boston has traded starter John Lackey to St. Louis for utilityman Allen… » 7/31/14 1:09pm 7/31/14 1:09pm
