Giant Dissection

Just when we give the Dodgers props after taking two of three from the Braves over the weekend, the Giants smack them around in a three-game sweep in L.A. Sweet paypack, too, if you’re a Giants’ fans, since the Dodgers scored the hat trick the last time they met in July. They also blanked the Giants in the final two games of the series and limited them to only three runs overall...

Top 10 Eccentric Hairdos in the Majors

Where Did The Red Sox Magic Go?

It’s currently 2012. Meaning that almost eight years ago the Red Sox broke the curse of the Bambino, and captured their first  World Series title in 86 years. That sentence took a lot of effort to type as a fan of the Yankees. But as a true baseball I respect what the Red Sox did that season. Maybe not back then, but now I do. The fans of Boston took their team very seriously...

The Yankees Are Smarter Than You

The Yankees are the greatest sports franchise that has ever been around. That is not to be denied, and will likely never be questioned. There are two types of fans. Yankees fans, and everyone else who despises them for what they’re about. What are they about though?
