One of the latest (and greatest) memes online today is "Gangnam Style", a Korean dance music video that has exploded since being released on Youtube in the middle of July. For the record "gangnam style" is apparently a synonym of more American terms swag and YOLO...OK, I'm feeling very old explaining all of this.
Anyway, there have been a ton of parodies and such popping up online, and now, a baseball version has been created. Gordon Mack of the MLB Fan Cave put this video together to hype the upcoming MLB playoffs, and well...it's pretty awesome.
Floating heads of MLB stars...yeah, that's not going to haunt my dreams for weeks. The opening scenes with the players slowly moving....yeah. That's a little horrifying. As is Chipper Jones playing around in a pool while Paul Konerko watches from a distance.
I hope you're happy for scarring me for life, Gordon.

Home plate collisions are that one part of baseball that gives credence to what it takes to play the sport, with players' toughness on the line as the runner hurtles toward the catcher as he digs into the dirt and waits for the throw. Baseball had one of its biggest batter's box showdowns earlier this week when Yadier Molina somehow emerged unscathed after a serious run-in...
Video: Now this is a bang bang play!
Atlanta Braves’ Chipper Jones, is called out at home plate as he collides with Philadelphia Phillies catcher Erik Kratz, during the fourth inning of a baseball game on Friday, Aug. 31, 2012, at Turner Field in Atlanta.
Chipper tanked into Kratz at full speed, catching the catcher a bit unprepared for the huge collision. Kratz was sent airborne, but it didn’t matter. He remarkably...
Earlier this week we saw St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina take a vicious hit from Josh Harrison of the Pittsburgh Pirates at home plate and get up with the ball, despite being shaken up in the process. Fast forward to last night and we had a similar situation when Atlanta’s Chipper Jones [...]

I mentioned it before and I'm going to say to it again...when I heard that Chipper Jones was retiring, I was worried that he'd be subjected to the hackneyed "farewell tour" gifts every time he came to town.And, well, thanks to the San Diego Padres...I was justified.Earlier this week, former Padres great, closer Trevor Hoffman, presented Jones with his very own,...
In what might be the strangest video to ever be remotely associated with Major League Baseball, a "gangnam style" mash-up of a Korean music video and baseball stars has gone viral, to much confusion. The style of music, named after a Park Jae Sung track that features a "horse-riding dance," went viral earlier this year, apparently, and now has found a partner...
Great picture of Philadelphia Phillies catcher Erik Kratz holding onto the ball after being run over by Chipper Jones. MLB had a great quote. @MLB Erik Kratz doesn’t always get trucked by Chipper Jones, but when he does, he prefers to hold onto the ball.
Transport yourself one month into the future. The Pirates will be preparing for their final series of the regular season. And if you believe the Baseball Prospectus Playoff Odds Report, the Pirates will have positioned themselves to have a 1 in 4 chance of being on the precipice of the playoffs.
Who will the Pirates be facing for the opportunity to go to the playoffs for the...
