Found May 24, 2013 on Online Sports Guys:
((ht: awfulannouncing.com)) This is just painful. Particularly to those of us who work in the TV business and take pride in making sure anything we put on the air is correct. For those of you familiar with Sports, take a look at the screen grab on your right. It's a graphic done for the Fox Sports Kansas City broadcast of Thursday's Royals game. Look closely. In no particular order: Bryce Hunter should be Bryce Harper. And notice the Detroit Tigers logo and Nationals cap. Matt Jones. Nope. Should be Matt Harvey. and notice the Orioles logo. That despite the Mets cap. Manny Machado. Well, they did get his name right, but check out the White Sox logo. And then Mike Trout. Again, they did get the name right, but no, despite the Angels hat, they show him as playing for the Yankees. C'mon guys, this is embarrassing. Sure, we know that on occasion typos are made, we get that. Happens to everyone. But this is pathetic. Did you not even look at t...

Nats closer rips Harper after miscue

It's been a rough couple of weeks for Nats' rising star Bryce Harper. First, there was his embarrassing face-plant into the right-field wall at Dodger Stadium. Harper tried to track down a drive off the bat of A.J. Ellis but failed to remember the important part of the term "warning track." Take a look for yourself. OK, so maybe it's wise for him not to do...

Another Sort-Of First for Bryce Harper

Even when I’m not trying to pay attention to Bryce Harper, he finds a way to capture my focus. Last night, I was seeing off a friend on the east side of Portland, and if I’d been thinking about any sport, it was hockey, since these are the days of the NHL playoffs. A TV was being projected onto one of the walls of the bar, and at first it was showing a minor-league hockey game...

The Washington Nationals Are Wearing Shirts With Their Pitching Coach’s Playgirl Photo On Them

Sure many women flock to Bryce Harper as the heartthrob of the Washington Nationals, but it’s actually their pitching coach, Steve McCatty who sends all the ladies into a tizzy. All the female fervor over McCatty reached it’s hunky pinnacle in 1984 when he was featured in a Playgirl pictorial. Next stop Beefcake City. This tantalizing photo has all of the early 80′s sexuality...

Rafael Soriano Bashes Teammate Bryce Harper For Miscue

One of three things happens when a good team starts to lose. 1. The team rallies behind a leader who portrays a greater poise. 2. The manager makes minor adjustments in the lineup to make sure the team is running on all cylinders. 3. Frustration sets in and fingers start to be pointed, in either the direction of another player or at the player himself. The latter took place after...

Did The Royals Broadcast Have The Worst Graphic Fail Of All-Time?

Now we completely expect the hapless Kansas City Royals to make blunders on the field, but we expect a little bit of professionalism during their broadcast. Fox Sports Kansas City made one of the most egregious and blatant errors of sports graphics of all-time on Thursday night. During the Royals and Los Angeles Angels game the broadcast team asked the question; “Which Young Player...

The Second Half Push: Harvey, Montero, Wheeler, and the Elusive .500

When PECOTA released their preseason major league projections earlier this year, there weren’t many surprises to be found in the National League East: The Washington Nationals were projected to once again top the National League East with 88-wins while the Atlanta Braves trailed them in second place with 82-wins. The surprise team in the group wasn’t the cream of the east, but...

Error: Grapic refers to Bryce Hunter and Matt Jones

The above graphic appeared on FOX Sports Kansas City telecast of the Royals and Angels game. It has just about everything wrong with it. Gone are the days of Bryce Haper, he is now Bryce Hunter. The same can be said for Mets phenom pitcher Matt Harvey who is now Matt Jones. To make matters worse the team logos are all incorrect. Harper, er Hunter… is now a member of the Tigers...

All Hail Mike Trout

We all know who Bryce Harper is – the guy will literally run into a wall for attention and then blame it on playing stupid hard.  And we all know that Miguel Cabrera is crushing high-AAA pitching on a daily basis.  There is another guy, though, that should be garnering way more attention than he currently is – Mike Trout. Last night, Mike Trout did his best pre-Kim Basinger...

The Zack Wheeler hype will end up being his downfall

With 2013 being touted as a rebuilding year for the Mets, most fans are excited to see the debut of prospects like Travis d’Arnuad and Zack Wheeler. It is now May and the talk of these prospects is heating up. d’Arnuad is out with a broken foot and is due back soon while Wheeler just missed a start due to soreness in his neck. The team decided to play it safe with their top...

Johnson says no shave until Nats start hitting

Davey Johnson says he's giving up his razor until the Washington Nationals find their bats. The manager apologized for his scraggly appearance before Friday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies, but he said it had a purpose. ''If my facial hair looks bad,'' he said, ''I decided I wouldn't shave until we started hitting.'' The Nationals...

Mets Swept After Ike Davis Blunder Ignites 7-4 Reds Win

Ike Davis’ troubles at the plate and in the field continued as he botched two plays at first, one in which opened the door to the Reds’ three-run ninth inning in Wednesday’s 7-4 loss. With the Mets being swept, they fell to a season-high ten games below .500. Matt Harvey did not have a great start, but came away with another no-decision. ON THE MOUND: Harvey gave up four...
