Jeffrey Loria is a bad man

Those dastardly Taiwanese animators are at it again.  In their crosshairs, The Florida Miami Marlins (and former Montreal Expos) owner Jeffery Loria.  In the high quality animation, Loria is shown to be a dastardly devil out of the Snively Whiplash mold, and is labeled to be worse that Frank McCourt. What more, Loria is shown giving the Expos [...]

Marlins point to last place finish as their why for trades

The baseball world reacted with disdain for the recent trade made between the Miami Marlins and the Toronto Blue Jays. After all, the Marlins sent just about every single player they signed to a deal last season to Canada, and received what looks like a bag of balls to everyone else. Jose Reyes, Mark Buerhle, [...]

Crazy triathlete Broncos fan wanted to kill the POTUS

Maybe passing a marijuana law was the right choice for Colorado, because these dudes out there need to mellow out. A self-proclaimed Denver Broncos fan, and triathlete, was recently arrested for allegedly threatening President Barack Hussein Obama. Police were informed by Mitchell Kenneth Kusick’s therapist. Like you could already expect, Kusick was upset with shooting [...]

Baseball Contracts and the MVP Award

Recently I got into an argument where I disagreed Mike Trout was worth more than Miguel Cabrera to his baseball team (ignoring the fact that Mike Trout was simply worth more than Miguel Cabrera to his baseball team) because Trout made $480,000 last year and Cabrera made $21,000,000.  For years sabermetrically inclined people have argued that a player’s [...]

Rex Ryan on anonymous Tebow critics: They are cowards

Earlier today, we discussed the New York Daily News report about several members of the New York Jets that ripped teammate Tim Tebow, anonymously. We, like many others, called the players cowards.

High school coach delivers amazing speech to Hurricane Sandy victims

The outcome is what Beach Channel hoped, but this was an area that was absolutely ravaged by Hurricane Sandy. Rockaway, NY was one of the hardest hit areas, and parts of it look like a war zone.

UCLA students have a message for USC

The UCLA Bruins and the USC Trojans play one another this weekend. Unlike years past, the Bruins have a legit shot at beating the Kiffikins. So you can’t fault the students living in the dorms for some trash talk prior to it. They were very creative this year. Have to say, I can’t disagree. And [...]

Gutless Jets players rip Tebow

Put your name to it. Simple as that. If you are going to speak to the media, and harshly criticize your teammate, put your name to your quote. That was the failure of some New York Jets players, who ripped Tim Tebow while speaking with Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. They weren’t [...]

Blue Jays and Marlins discussing blockbuster trade

Not even five months after the monstrous trade between the Dodgers and Red Sox that saw nearly a quarter of a billion in salaries changing hands, it looks like the AL East is set to acquire some payroll from a National League team.  And the team doing the buying is probably not who you’d expect.
