Routine Line Drive Avoids Starlin Castro's Glove

Just your garden-variety three-base error for Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro in this afternoon's fourth inning. He would later boot a grounder in the ninth, too, but the Cubs did manage to win. » 9/25/13 5:55pm 9/25/13 5:55pm

Is Dan Uggla A Mad Genius Or Just A Crappy Fielder?

The answer, of course, is "crappy fielder." But when Uggla completely whiffed on a throw, dropping it at his own feet, it inspired Denard Span to try for home. He discovered, an instant too late, that he had been Uggla'd. » 9/18/13 11:13am 9/18/13 11:13am

Pedro Alvarez Scored On His Own Single

Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez, all 6-foot-3, 235 pounds of him, is not known for his baserunning—or for much of anything besides hitting home runs and striking out. But he managed to circle the bases last night on an ordinary single because Padres right fielder Chris Denorfia did this. » 8/20/13 1:50pm 8/20/13 1:50pm

The Astros Lost On A Moronic Walk-Off Error

"Looks like we're going to extra innings." That's what Greg Brown, the Pirates' TV broadcaster, said as soon as Russell Martin made contact on this fly ball to shallow right-center. But Brown should have known better. Because it ain't over till the Astros have finished tying all of their shoelaces together. » 5/18/13 12:46am 5/18/13 12:46am

The Hilariously Inept Rockies Let A Run Score On A Throw Back To The…

With a runner on third in the second inning of this afternoon's game, Jhoulys Chacin got a little too casual snatching at the return throw from his catcher. He deflected the ball into the precise no-man's-land between the mound and second, and Juan Francisco scampered home with Atlanta's first run. The Rockies'… » 9/06/12 1:30pm 9/06/12 1:30pm

Chipper Jones's Underhanded Throw To The Plate Nearly Lands In The…

The ball was flying all over Turner Field last night, what with the Giants and Braves combining for six home runs, including four in extra innings. The Giants eventually won in the 11th thanks to three-run homers by both Brandon Crawford and Gregor Blanco, but they initially took the lead in the 10th when Chipper's… » 7/19/12 10:35am 7/19/12 10:35am

Lance Berkman Just Committed One Of The Funniest Errors In His Career

Lance Berkman is still in the majors at age 36, and as a member of the National League Cardinals, gets to entertain us in the field on a daily basis. And entertain he did this afternoon in the first inning of St. Louis' tussle with the Milwaukee Brewers, as what should have been the final out of the inning became a… » 7/18/12 2:57pm 7/18/12 2:57pm

Kansas City's Smoky Air Turned Bryce Harper Into A Zombie

The National League spanked the AL in last night's All-Star Game, which may actually be news to you given ratings almost certainly went down yet again for the Midsummer Classic. » 7/11/12 9:00am 7/11/12 9:00am

The Ninth Inning Of Today's Mets-Giants Game Was About The Worst Ever

The Mets tried valiantly to lose today's matinee against the Giants, only to have their LOLMets returned twofold. An outfield blunder by Ruben Tejada and Kirk Nieuwenhuis on what should have been the final play of the game in the top of the ninth allowed San Francisco to tie the game, but the Giants (thanks to having… » 4/21/12 5:11pm 4/21/12 5:11pm

A Very Quick Correction To A Very Dumb Rick Reilly Column

Rick Reilly writes: "Jersey Rule No. 3: You may not wear a jersey if somebody else in your group is already wearing one. This is also known as The Fedora Rule. No two guys in any group can be wearing a fedora. The second man's fedora must be trashed, crushed or sold. You never saw Sinatra and Dean Martin wearing one,… » 9/28/11 4:41pm 9/28/11 4:41pm
