The YouTube description accompanying this video claims that these two lovebirds are total strangers, which seems a little hard to believe, but I guess anything is possible when two people are a few beers deep and the Royals make the World Series for the first time since 1985.
On Saturday, a Kansas City Royals fan was really sad about the fact that he was too broke to take his girlfriend to a Royals playoff game. As any sensible person would do, he looked to amend the situation by taking to Twitter and asking Royals reliever Brandon Finnegan for some tickets.
Michael Deal, who previously gave us this infographic of every pitch of the All-Star game as part of his Statlas project, has developed a new take on the MLB box score.

This is the work of our friends at SI Kids, and it's definitely the best baseball-themed short film featuring Lego men that you will see this week. Is Torii Hunter falling over the outfield wall still funny in Lego form? You bet it is.
This season, the A's, Rays, and Pirates used front office wiles to build playoff-bound squads despite having minimal financial resources.

So says the New York Post, which published an article today alleging that A-Rod, having been pinch-hit for in the eighth inning, put a considerable amount of effort into trying to woo two pretty ladies in the stands.
What cannot Raul Ibanez do? What situation cannot he handle? Of all the situations with the possibility of can, there is nothing he cannot.
ALCS. Top of the sixth. Man on second. One out. His Texas Rangers down 2-1. That's when Josh Hamilton lost his grip on a swing which, in turn, sent his bat into a front-row Tigers fan's head.

Alex Rodriguez's magic tush massage could not overcome the haunting Sajak voodoo gaze as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim staved off the Yankee gorilla trouncing for one more day. Something called Jeff Mathis is today's hero.
