Rob Manfred Kicks Shoeless Joe Jackson Back Into The Grave

The appointment of a new MLB commissioner is always a good time for certain special interest groups—spitball enthusiasts, Montreal baseball fans, Pete Rose truthers—to begin seeking favors. “Maybe,” they think, “the new commissioner will be more reasonable than the last!” This is presumably why the proprietors of the… » 9/01/15 11:18am Today 11:18am

On Saturday night, a man at Turner Field fell from the upper deck during the seventh inning of the Atlanta Braves 3-1 loss to the New York Yankees.

And Now, The Rare Sacrifice Fly Scored By A Man From Second Base

Tigers center fielder Anthony Gose caught a long fly from Josh Donaldson during fourth inning action in Toronto today and casually started jogging back to the dugout. That’d be fine, except it wasn’t the third out of the inning—and the Blue Jays had Ryan Goins on second base. » 8/29/15 2:56pm Saturday 2:56pm

Reminder: Paul Goldschmidt Is Very Good

There’s a good chance you haven’t seen much of Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt over the last few seasons, despite the fact that he’s one of the best hitters in baseball. If Goldschmidt’s in your blindspot, don’t feel too bad, that’s just what happens when a guy plays in Arizona for a team that has not been… » 8/27/15 10:38am Thursday 10:38am

Don Orsillo Was At His Best When The Red Sox Were Boring

Longtime Red Sox play-by-play man Don Orsillo is reportedly leaving NESN at the end of season. His contract is up and NESN’s higher-ups don’t seem to enjoy him. The company also mandated that announcers had to take days off, which reportedly didn’t sit well with Orsillo. Hopefully, he’ll move on to bigger and better… » 8/25/15 4:58pm 8/25/15 4:58pm

Six Memes That I Swear Curt Schilling Shared To His Facebook Page

Curt Schilling’s Facebook page shares a lot of memes. Curt loves memes. Excluding the greatness that was the “Muslims are basically Nazis” sentiment, we wanted to highlight six memes that really stood out for their hot truths. A note: All of these were shared in the past three weeks and we really don’t have the heart… » 8/25/15 1:17pm 8/25/15 1:17pm

Pablo Sandoval Makes Great, Hilarious Catch

Pablo Sandoval is having a pretty terrible year, which is sad because he’s one of my favorite players in the league. When he’s good, he’s a slapstick artist who just happens to be blessed with the ability to sock dingers and play a slick third base. Anyway, given how bad he’s been this year, it was nice to see a flash… » 8/25/15 10:04am 8/25/15 10:04am

The Mets Are Homering For Fun, And Probably Going To Make The Playoffs

We’re used to writing about the Mets for other reasons around here, so please forgive me if I make any mistakes while trying to play this one straight, but the Mets offense absolutely went bonkers Monday night, and it increasingly looks like they are going to skate right into the playoffs. » 8/25/15 2:03am 8/25/15 2:03am
