Mike Napoli to have surgery to correct sleep apnea

Plenty of big leaguers will have surgeries this off season to fix the little things that ail them. Happens every year. Mike Napoli is one of those guys. But here’s the thing, the Boston Red Sox first baseman has been dealing with finger, toe and back issues, but that’s not what he’s getting checked out. Dude is having, wait for it, facial reconstruction surgery. Yup, you read...

Wisdom and Links: Why the Orioles Totally Still Have a Chance

It does not look good for the “Baltimore Nine” these days. The score is two to nothing, with perhaps just two games left to play. At least, there’s only two games to play if they don’t win soon. And, well, that doesn’t look easy, since the Kansas City Royals have apparently cracked into the dark magic of playoff destiny usually only available in previous postseasons to...

John Rocker on Survivor: 'It was miserable'

As you’re fully aware, the John Rocker experiment ended Wednesday night when the former big leaguer was booted off “Survivor: San Juan del Sur”. But I’ve gotta hand it to the guy. Dude made the rounds Thursday, seemingly hitting all his post-show interviews. And folks had a ton of questions to throw his way…both about his time on the show and, well, you know. “People...

The Rocker Report: Week Three

Hit the showers.When it comes to the game of “Survivor”, there is little to no room for sympathy. The essence of the game, at it’s very core, is ruthless, cutthroat, dog eat dog warfare. That said, I do have to admit that an ever so teeny part of me feels kind of bad for John Rocker. Now I know what you’re thinking. Yes, I’ve spent the better part of the first few weeks...

New Yorkers Take The ALCS Challenge

Katie Nolan is quickly becoming one of my favorite internet personalities and her contribution to the interwebs Friday is one of the reasons why. Prior to Game One of the American League Championship Series between the Kansas City Royals and Baltimore Orioles, she took to the streets and asked New Yorkers to take “The ALCS Challenge”. And it is awesome.

Wisdom and Links: LCS Preview Edition

A Special “Wisdom and Links” today from on the upcoming League Championship Series that focuses on who will win the ALCS and NLCS based on things that have nothing to do with baseball. For example: Who would win in a fight? To be sure, one would expect a Giant to easily squash a Cardinal, but an Oriole-Royal scuffle is more up for debate. After all, Royals come in many shapes...

Cubs interested in Yasiel Puig?

It would appear the hot stove is already burning. After calling up Javier Baez and Jorge Soler late in the season and with super prospect Kris Bryant waiting in the wings, the Chicago Cubs have all of a sudden become the sexy team to bet on to be playing in October the next couple of years. And I’d have to imagine this would help the cause immensely. Are the Dodgers shopping Puig...

What I’m Watching: The Day the World Series Stopped

It’s a simple question, really. Where were you at 5:04pm on October 17, 1989? But if you’ve followed baseball over the last quarter-century…you already know. Jon Leonoudakis, director of the fantastic 2012 documentary “Not Exactly Cooperstown”, is back with the equally magnificent “The Day the World Series Stopped” and, in the process, shows us where he was on that...

Rocker kicked off 'Survivor'

Welp…that didn’t last long. After finding an immunity idol during last week’s show and virtually guaranteeing himself (and us!) another week, John Rocker was on the losing end of a tribal council vote this week on “Survivor: San Juan del Sur”. But not before he went full on Rocker. The former big leaguer who, in a 1999 Sports Illustrated interview, said some unflattering...

St. Louis Mayor to World: Don’t Hate Us!

Ask any St. Louis Cardinals fan who the best fans are in baseball and they’ll tell you.  They are.  There’s even a study out there that backs it up. Ask any St. Louis Cardinals fan who the most hated team is in baseball and they’ll likely give you 29 different answers.  Unfortunately, according to The Wall Street Journal, they’d all be wrong. Heading into this year...

NBA Star Wants Son to Play Baseball

Paul Pierce is a ten-time NBA All-Star and should be a slam dunk (get it!) Hall of Famer when his time comes. So, it would make sense, when asked, if the newly inked Washington Wizards forward would want his one-year-old son Prince to follow in his footsteps on the basketball court.  Surprisingly…that wasn’t the case. “I want him to be a baseball player,” Pierce told David...

While WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan was in San Francisco hanging out with Hunter Pence and leading the more than 41,000 fans in the “Yes! Yes! Yes!” chants, former champion The Rock was in Brooklyn going for the cheap pop.

Rangers Goaltender Adds Derek Jeter to Mask

After a serious ankle injury put his dreams of being a professional hockey player on hold, David Leroux did what we all would do…he decided to rely on his skills as an airbrush artist. But dude wouldn’t settle for a career decorating t-shirts at a mall kiosk, he started putting his paintjobs on goalie masks.  And the results are pretty awesome. During this past off season, The...

WWE superstar Daniel Bryan visits Hunter Pence, Giants

Prior to the last home game of the season, Hunter Pence led the crowd of more than 41,000 in a rousing chorus of “Yes! Yes! Yes!”. However, there was no mention anywhere by the San Francisco Giants outfielder that is was WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan who started the “Yes Movement”.  Monday, prior to the Giants Game Three tilt against the Washington Nationals…seemingly all...

Hey, didja hear the one about Brandon Finnegan pitching in the College World Series for TCU this past June? Well, if you’ve watch any of the Kansas City Royals games this postseason you have, as it appears as though TBS announcer Ernie Johnson has a love affair with the idea…having mentioned it at least 52 times. Okay. That number might be a slight exaggeration, but if the a...

What I’m Watching: 108 Stitches

With equal parts “Van Wilder” and “Major League”…the 2014 movie “108 Stitches” is a unique blend of madcap campus comedy and underdog sports movie. And, well…it actually works. From IMDb: With baseball being the last thing on these player’s minds, and dealing with one of the longest losing streaks in college history, the team of misfits comes to the realization...

Eddie Vedder: “Put Pete Rose in the Hall of Fame”

Eddie Vedder is a huge baseball fan. True story. The Chicago Cubs fan has led the seventh inning stretch at Wrigley Field countless times…he’s even penned an anthem of sorts for the team. Heck, alongside fellow troubadours Paul Simon and Jack White, the Pearl Jam front man recently took in a Seattle Mariners-Texas Rangers game back in August. So, is it really a shock that, before...

Thankfully, the Reds fell out of playoff contention sometime in May (this is an estimation…not fact) or fans would have been torn between...
