200TH PITCHING WIN, TOO

Bryce Harper assists on Tim Hudson's homer

Tuesday night, Tim Hudson became just the third active pitcher (Andy Pettitte and Roy Halladay) to reach 200 victories.  And dude did it in style. The righty scattered three hits over seven stellar innings and blasted his third career home run (you can credit Bryce Harper with the assist) while powering the Atlanta Braves to an 8-1 victory over the Washington Nationals.

"Godzilla" to Return to The Yankees

Sure he retired last December, but, according to the New York Post, that isn't stopping the New York Yankees from offering Hideki Matsui a contract. I'll let you make all the Yankees jokes, but, honestly, the team inking the former slugger to a one-day deal so he can ceremoniously "retire" in pinstripes is actually pretty cool. The two-time All-Star, and...

Pitcher Breaks Five-Year Hitless Drought

In the Majors, pitchers, while clearly not the best hitters on any team, do get base hits.  In the Korean Baseball Organization...notsomuch. Sunday, in their game against the SK Wyverns, Hanwha Eagles reliever Yoon Keun-young be came the league's first pitcher since May 27, 2008 to get a hit in a game.  In the top of the 12th inning, tied 5-5, the reliever dropped a single...

Frank Thomas Has Houses (Yes...Houses) For Sale

Alright, so what's going on with Frank Thomas? In the last month, the former slugger has put two houses (one in suburban Chicago and the other in Las Vegas) up for sale and put the money down for the future home of Big Hurt Brewhouse. Is the future Hall of Famer in the midst of some sort of post career mid-life crisis, in financial disarray or just bored?  Who knows...

Friday 5: Matthew Kaminski

It’s hard to imagine going to the ballpark and not hearing organ music, right? For years, organists like Nancy Faust or the recently deceased Ernie Hays have played their way into being just as much an integral part of the ballgame as those actually down on the field itself. Meet Matthew Kaminski. Since 2009, the jazz organist has been delighting Atlanta Braves fans...

Behold! Jason Grilli's Entrance Video

It should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me...I dig entrance music and walk up songs.  I've gotta think it comes from my love of wrestling and the pagaentry that surrounds it. Well, you can have your "Enter Sandman" or "Hell's Bells"...I'm going with Jason Grilli's entrance music/video. The erstwhile journeyman-turned-current...

Upton Brothers Go Back-to-Back

When Justin and B.J. Upton took up residency in the Atlanta Braves outfield, we all knew it was just a matter of time before they went yard back-to-back. On Tuesday night, it happened. In the fifth inning of their contest against the Colorado Rockies, the brothers took righty Jon Garland deep.  B.J. went yard first for his third home run of the season, while younger brother...

Fernando Tatis Has Taken to Taunting Chan Ho Park

On April 23, 1999, then-St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Fernando Tatis smacked a record two, count 'em, two grand slams off Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Chan Ho Park in the same inning. Now, fourteen years later, Tatis has taken to Twitter to smack talk the Korean hurler. Now, I don't want to be this guy...but I will.  Sure, on that day, Tatis might've...

Josh Reddick shaves off his massive beard

Uh oh, gang.  Phone the neighbors, wake the kids...Oakland A's outfielder Josh Reddick has shaved off his beard Sort of. The slumping superstar (Reddick was batting just .109 going into the weekend) showed up to Tropicana Field to take on the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday and something was definitely different.  Dude had been shorn. "He definitely did it to fight the...

Another Day, Another Awful First Pitch

Videos of terrible ceremonial first pitches (looking your way Denard Robinson and John Wall) seem to be making the rounds lately online. Not to be outdone, South Korean singer Fat Cat did her best to keep the trend alive the other night prior to the Nexen Heroes game against the Hanwha Eagles...silencing the dozen fans in the stands.

"Big Hurt" to Open Brewhouse

At first glance, he doesn't look a thing like Sam Malone, but Frank Thomas looks to be following in the footsteps of the fictitious baseball legend.  Earlier this week, it was announced that the former MVP will be opening his own sports bar and grill. According to reports, the Berwyn City Council approved a re-development ordinance to convert a local landmark (terms of the...

Will Middlebrooks: "Let's Go Get This Tool"

Monday's bombing at the Boston Marathon has weighed heavy on the minds and hearts of us all.  I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that the majority of us are angry, sad and, perhaps, even concerned for our own safety. Suffice it to say, members of the Boston Red Sox are no different. So when news broke late Thursday night that one of the suspects was dead...

Friday 5: Thomas McAllister

Baseball is a game built on superstition.  From a pitcher not stepping on the foul line to and from the mound or a player eating the same thing every day during a hitting streak. Well, its fans are no different. Enter Thomas McAllister.  Dude takes the superstition of a “playoff beard”, or in his case, the “championship beard”, to a whole different level.  You...

How to Get a Seat Upgrade

It’s that elusive, sometimes seemingly unattainable goal of trying to upgrade your seats once you get to a game. I’m now convinced that at least one fan of the Cleveland Indians has it figured out.   At Saturday’s contest against the Chicago White Sox, he shared the trick to all 11,422 fans (I was one of them) in attendance.      At first glance...
