Replay Review Doesn't Prevent Umpires From Completely Blowing Call

Corey Dickerson Boned Himself Out Of An Inside-The-Park Home Run

With his team down 6-4 in the bottom of the ninth inning of yesterday's game against the Brewers, Corey Dickerson stepped to the plate and ripped a pitch into the right-field wall.

Todd Helton Homered In His Final Game At Coors Field

In the 1,140 previous home games the 17-year veteran played for the Rockies, his only Major League club, Todd Helton batted .345 and hit 226 home runs. This shouldn't come as a shock. And yet — the first baseman just turned 40, he'd hit just 14 homers this season and the Rockies don't exactly command an air of destiny. » 9/25/13 10:03pm 9/25/13 10:03pm

Jason Giambi: Baseball's Favorite Old-Ass Slugger

Jason Giambi did it again last night. At 42 years old, he stepped up to the plate as a pinch hitter with a man on in the bottom of the ninth inning of a tie game one-run game—a game that his team desperately needed to win in order to keep its playoff hopes alive—channeled his violent and nervous energy through his… » 9/25/13 2:08pm 9/25/13 2:08pm
