Chase Headley Meets New Team Mid-Game, Hits Walk-Off Single In 14th

That's newly-acquired Yankees third baseman Chase Headley meeting his new coaches and teammates for the first time since he was traded from the Padres earlier in the day. He had to catch a flight from Chicago, where San Diego was set to play the Cubs, so he was not expected to get to the stadium on time—Joe Girardi… » 7/23/14 1:00am Yesterday 1:00am

Ryan Howard Drives In Two On Check Swing

Someone should probably check on Colby Lewis to make sure his skull is still intact and tiny pieces of his brain are not scattered all over the place. With the bases loaded and a full count in the top of the fourth inning against the Giants, Ryan Howard drove in two runs with an excuse-me swing that punched the ball… » 7/21/14 10:25pm Monday 10:25pm

Josh Donaldson Hits Monster Walk-Off Homer Against Orioles

The Orioles and Athletics have suddenly become a very exciting, potential postseason matchup. It first started getting some juice thanks to a weird feud between two guys who featured prominently in this game: Josh Donaldson and Manny Machado. In a June series in Baltimore, Machado got upset at what he felt was an … » 7/19/14 12:17pm Saturday 12:17pm

Here's The Derek Jeter Farewell At The All-Star Game

John Farrell waited for the American League to take the field in the top of the fourth inning so he could remove Jeter from the game and give the crowd a proper chance to send off Jeter. It was a nice moment, Jeter tipped his cap (face) to the crowd, the players, and the coaches. He then went into the dugout and… » 7/15/14 9:57pm 7/15/14 9:57pm

Communist Umpire Ruins All-Star Game On First Play

I'm sorry: is this, or is this not, Derek Jeter's night? Are we not saying farewell to The Captain tonight? Someone better get the umpires on board then, because on the second goddamned pitch of the game, Derek Sanderson Jeter went to his motherfucking left and snagged a rocket off the bat of Andrew McCutchen. He then… » 7/15/14 8:35pm 7/15/14 8:35pm

Giancarlo Stanton Nearly Hit One Out Of The Stadium

All the talk heading into the Home Run Derby was about Giancarlo Stanton, and his first-round performance not disappoint. He hit a couple of monster shots, but this one was an absolute bomb. It was maybe 5 rows from leaving the stadium in left field. ESPN's Home Run Tracker had it at 422 feet but it was easily 756… » 7/14/14 10:25pm 7/14/14 10:25pm

Cubs Fan Catches Braves Home Run Ball, Throws Fake Ball Back On Field

This is a funny little insight into the lunacy of sports fandom. Much like with the players, there are unwritten rules of decorum for fans and one of those rules is that you must throw an opposing team's home run back onto the field if you catch it. People will straight-up yell at you if you don't. They made a whole » 7/12/14 7:09pm 7/12/14 7:09pm

Match Mercifully Ends; Netherlands Beat Brazil 3-0

We know, lady. We know. This...this was not a good match. The Netherlands took out what little air was in this match almost immediately and then tacked on a meaningless third goal in added time, which we're not even bothering to GIF because, fuck it, this was a game for third place. Good news, Netherlands! You came in… » 7/12/14 6:19pm 7/12/14 6:19pm
