Monday Morning Quickie: Eli Manning Does SNL, The Kentucky Derby, Bryce Harper Steals HomeThere’s nothing better then waking up in the morning, and getting what you need quickly and easily. But just in case she isn’t there for you, I am.

Here’s your Monday Morning Quickie…

Eli Manning apparently isn’t retarded. Could have fooled me. Watch him be funny on SNL. [NBC Sports]

The Kansas City Royals gave away George Brett pine tar bats to fans. Mainly because no one actually cares about the current players. [Last Angry Fan]

Bryce Harper is stealing home. And I wanted so badly to hate him. [Deadspin]

Watch the entire Kentucky Derby. [Sports Glory]

Kate Upton says hello. [Coed]


Eli Manning takes the SNL stage

Vote: Rate Eli Manning's Appearance on 'Saturday Night Live'

Well, at least New York didn't have to wait as long to watch Eli Manning raise the Lombardi Trophy as it did to see him onstage at 30 Rockefeller Center. (Canned laughter.) Manning drew plenty of laughs Saturday evening when made his much-anticipated appearance on Saturday Night Live, with musical guest Rihanna. The fun started soon after the opening monologue, when Manning appeared...

Comparing Your Manning PSA's...

((HT:'s probably the highlight of Eli Manning hosting "Saturday Night Live"The "Little Brothers" PSA...Compare to the eayton Manning "United Way" ad...Which was better...???Not that I wouldn't kill a snitch...

Harper handling beaning the best?

Who knew that Cole Hamels, the spindly San Diegan, was a Don Drysdale protege and distinguished chair of the Old School Department at Baseball University? Hamels drilled the brassy Bryce Harper with a fastball to the back on Sunday night. Hamels did it on purpose, maybe because he thinks the 19-year-old rookie is arrogant, maybe because he's upset about the current National...

Bryce Harper steals home after getting plunked by Cole Hamels

The world watched Bryce Harper on ESPN Sunday night, and they got the show one can expect when watching a rookie phenom when Harper stole home on a Cole Hamels pickoff attempt to first base. Harper got on base via a hit by pitch courtesy of Hamels, who said after the game that he went after him intentionally. Watch the video below of Harper stealing home before the MLB has it removed as usual.

Welcome to the Fallout: David Cutcliffe and the Manning brothers, Tommy Reis, Bill O'Brien, and more.

Back Where You Belong?  Possible changes in the BCS could lead to Boise State remaining in/returning to the Mountain West Conference. (The Reno Gazette-Journal) The Neverending Story.  Duke head football coach David Cutcliffe continues to mentor both Peyton Manning (who played under Cutcliffe when the latter was quarterback coach at Tennessee) and Eli Manning (who was QB...

Vote: Should Cole Hamels Have Been Suspended for Beaning Bryce Harper?

Cole Hamels says he was just trying to bring back some old-time baseball. Major League Baseball says he was being dangerous. Hamels was suspended for five games Monday after hitting Bryce Harper with a pitch in Sunday night’s game. Hamels said after the game that the beaning was intentional, as he was trying to welcome the 19-year-old phenom to the big leagues. Many welcomed Hamels...

Hamels plunks Harper, then admits aiming for him

Cole Hamels admits it: He plunked rookie phenom Bryce Harper on purpose. ''I was trying to hit him,'' the Philadelphia lefty said. ''I'm not going to deny it.'' That startling bit of honesty came after Hamels nailed the Washington teen with a fastball in the small of the back his first time up during the Phillies' 9-3 win Sunday night. The...

Phillies Pitcher Cole Hamels Should Expect Suspension for Intentionally Plunking Bryce Harper

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels has nothing against Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper. After intentionally plunking Harper in the first inning of a Phillies’ 9-3 win over the Nationals last night, Hamels came out and stated “I was trying to hit him. I’m not going to deny it.” Nothing personal, bro. It was a sort of throwback way of welcoming...

Cole Hamels Violated Baseball's Honor Code Admitting Intent, Not Throwing at Bryce Harper (Video)

Cole Hamels has been suspended five games for intentionally hitting Bryce Harper in the back, and the debate is raging over whether or not he deserved it. Not if Harper deserved to be hit, mind you, but whether or not Hamels deserved a suspension. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette asked our Twitter followers whether or not there's a place for intentionally throwing at players in...

16 NSFW Cole Hamels Is A ***** Tweets Via Bryce Harper Plunking

This is where we talk about Cole Hamels trying to lose the giant ***** street cred he’s built up via multiple ***** photoshoots over the last few years. It’s where Cole proves he’s an old school, Bob Gibson style pitcher who doesn’t like young punks like Bryce Harper walking into his sport and going balls to the walls. So of course Hamels thinks plunking Harper is the way...

Eli Manning on SNL: Funnier Than Peyton?

Both Mannings were No. 1 overall draft picks. Both quarterbacks are serving more fortuitous careers than that of their father Archie. Both brothers licked the pigskin off of heaping piles of Oreos. Considering how much Peyton and Eli share, why constantly prod this sibling rivalry? Of course, there's no denying that there is a sibling rivalry. Why would a rookie Eli righteously...

FanGraphs Audio: Dave Cameron

Episode 178 Managing editor Dave Cameron makes his weekly Monday appearance — this time on a Tuesday. Topics discussed: the sanest possible discussion of the Cole Hamels-Bryce Harper kerfuffle; the NL East, who Cameron regards as the favorite in it; and Jose Altuve: a franchise player, perhaps, but of how good a franchise? Don’t hesitate to direct pod-related correspondence to...

Chicken Cole Hamels suspended 5 games by MLB

Cole Hamels suspended 5 games by MLB for intentionally plunking Bryce Harper on Sunday night. Good riddance. And it's probably worth revisiting Mike Rizzo's thoughts on the plunking, in which he repeatedly calls Hamels chicken [bleep] and "fake tough", via the Washington Post. Sounds about right: "I’ve never seen a more classless, gutless chicken...

Cole Hamels is Suspended

Suspended Major League Baseball has suspended Cole Hamels, of the Philadelphia Phillies, for intentionally hitting Bryce Harper in the first inning of last night’s game. Without Hamels’ own admission, it is highly unlikely that any suspension would have been rendered. After yesterday’s game, Hamels openly admitted that he threw at Harper. Without his admission, MLB would have...
