Dice-K Says Sayonara to Tribe, Looking for Work Again

Dice-K Says Sayonara to Tribe, Looking for Work Again

Things can change incredibly fast¬† in sports. Oftentimes it takes a familiar name in an unexpected headline to serve as a blunt reminder. In this case, it was reading the following that provided that jolt for me: Indians grant Daisuke Matsuzaka his unconditional¬†release. That was just one buried story among the many more prominent sports […]

Kenyan kids act out Mets Game Six World Series win including Buckner error

Kenyan kids act out Mets Game Six World Series win including Buckner error

Isn’t our digital and social world a trip sometimes? Had to share this from the folks at Mets Blog. According to the YouTube description, a group of Kenyan students wanted to create a movie re-enactment of a famous sports moment. They chose Game Six of the ’86 World Series over the Titans Music City Miracle. […]

Umpire Bill Welke makes his case for worst call of the year

Umpire Bill Welke makes his case for worst call of the year

Umpires have a tough job. Incredibly difficult. Still, you’re at the big league level for a reason. So, you’ve got to be ready to handle the heat when you blow one. And Bill Welke blew one on Monday…big-time. The call came in the second inning of the Tigers-Red Sox Memorial Day affair. The miss was […]

Video: Paper bag Red Sox fan is pissed off at Beckett, everyone (NSFW)

Josh Beckett got shelled last night. The Red Sox $17M/year man went two and a third and allowed seven earned on seven hits. This a day after he went golfing despite having missed his last start due to a sore lat. The performance led to a cacophony of boos from the Fenway Faithful and the […]

Oh Manny: Ramirez and how things change

Oh Manny: Ramirez and how things change

I’m having trouble reconciling this Manny Ramirez signing with the A’s things. You see, this goes back awhile. I’ve written about it before. Ramirez was something to me long before Manny was ever being Manny. I continued to follow him as he grew into the slugger that some had predicted he could be back during […]

Alec Baldwin and John Krasinski Go Head-to-Head in New Era Sox-Yanks Ad

From Mr. Clapp at Sharapova’s Thigh, comes this solid clip. It’s a great new ad from the folks at New Era. I find this dose of the Alex Baldwin schtick more palatable than the Capital One stuff. The funniest part is that all Yankee haters have uttered similar barbs before…and heard the same responses.

Scu Scu Scutaro

I’m late to the party on this one, but can I say…fantastically-awful? Scutaro, who was largely terrible for the Metros by the way, has (shockingly) gone on to more success elsewhere. Today, he’s a pretty serviceable part-time guy for the Sawx. That said, how many utility-plus guys batting .279 with four dingers and 30 ribbies […]

Youkilis Gets Tossed: LOVE. IT.

Just So You Know…Nobody Likes You I’ll have more substantive stuff later in the week. However, I couldn’t help but find pleasure in the fact that Kevin Youkilis got tossed during a brawl last night against the Tigers. The folks at Fack Youk capture most of my sentiment. Here’s some video of Yook after he […]

Friday Fadeaways

Magic Steppin’ Up…or Not The Mets dropped two of three to the Phils @Citi in a series that was (and I’m not stretching) very much sweepable (for the home team). Plus, I stayed up to watch the freakin’ Lakers win in game four (that’s what you get for putting a pic of D-Howard up top […]

Fenway Pahk and Big Red Lax, Beantown Weekend for CS

Greetings ye Legend faithful. Thanks for hanging with us. For those that know me, it’s that time of year again. The week/weekend where I head out to voluntarily subject myself to Mets baseball…on the road…with my mother. It’s a tradition now going on seven years. Scary. So, I’m off today and tomorrow and extending the […]

Weekend Whirl

Yup, We Lost to This Guy Busy week with the whole work thing, so here’s a quick toss sweep around the sports world and our superficial thoughts on matters. The Cable Guy: Our beloved New York Jets continue to torture indiscriminately. Yesterday, as the Raiders tried desperately to give the game away, the green-and-white refused […]

Going Back to Florida. Wow.

Wow. The baseball postseason just got mildly interesting. What a game in Fenway. Now, a day off to digest, build up the hype and get the eyes of anyone and everyone who is still paying attention to the game focused on the Rays-Sox in St. Pete. Well all you crazy Rays fans, let’s see what […]
