Joe Maddon disappointed with Rays fans

A capacity crowd at Tropicana Field is 31,042 and, as you would imagine, the fourth place Tampa Bay Rays haven’t come close to filling the place since Opening Day.

Little Leaguer Mo’Ne Davis Owns FOX News Anchor

Little League superstar Mo’Ne Davis is starting to show that she’s as poised in the interview chair and she is on the mound. And Wednesday morning was no different. The budding media darling, who will become just the 18th girl to play in the Little League World Series, made an appearance on “Fox & Friends” and, as I can only guess is typical, co-host Eric Bolling decided...

Bryce Harper “Desecrates” Braves Logo

It’s pretty safe to say that Atlanta Braves fans hate Bryce Harper. And your name doesn’t need to be Nostradamus to figure out that even though they’ve pretty much held the Washington Nationals outfielder in check…dude’s actions Saturday night aren’t going to help him any. It’s not quite Terrell Owens standing with his arms wide open on the Dallas Cowboys star, but...

Tim Lincecum Puts Arizona Home Up For Sale

Alright…exactly how many places does Tim Lincecum call home?  For the second time this year, the two-time Cy Young Award winner has a crib up for sale.
