Yankees’ defense is fool’s gold

On Sunday I was watching the Tigers/Yankees game, when the announcer, Brian Anderson, proclaimed the Yankees are “amazing” defensively, due to their league leading fielding percentage and the “number of gold glovers” in their infield. As laughable as that statement is, luckily I don’t have to do the heavy lifting to tear this notion apart. [...]

Video: Great show of sportsmanship reminds us what is still right in sports

For all the taunting, cursing, complaining, greediness, and showboating that happens in professional sports, we often forget that it is just a game. Yes, it is more fun to win, and it sucks to finish last, but it sucks even more to not finish it at all. But a rare sign of true sportsmanship rang [...]

Starlin Castro has a brainfart, doesn’t turn two, ticks off manager

The Chicago Cubs may love their young 3rd year shortstop, but manager Dale Sveum is ready to kill the kid. The latest incident took place yesterday when Castro forgot how many outs there were and didn’t turn a tailor-made double play. He may be an All-Star, but that doesn’t get him free of criticism, and [...]

TO fires Drew Rosenhaus as his agent

He cannot find a job in the NFL. Heck, Terrell Owens cannot even get a workout with a team. After flunking his way out of the Indoor Football League, TO has made the decision to change one of the variables, and that was by firing longtime agent, Drew Rosenhaus. He made the announcement of the [...]

Jerome Felton busted for DUI at McDonald’s drive-thru

This must be something that only happens to members of organizations in the NFC North. Over the weekend, Minnesota Vikings fullback Jerome Felton was nabbed for a DUI. But this wasn’t your run of the mill DUI that professional athletes get. Heck, he wasn’t even well over the speed limit. He wasn’t even moving. He [...]

Mets fan banned for life for rushing the field

It seemed like the New York Mets would never see a no-hitter in their franchise history, just like Adrian Johnson never saw Carlos Beltran’s line drive hitting the third base foul line.  Now a fan will never get an opportunity to ever see something like that happen at CitiField, as the organization has banned him for life.

2012 MLB Mock Draft

Hello and welcome to my 2012 mock draft, which you can all point and laugh at after the first round ends tonight. Before I get started with the actual mock, however, a note on draft strategy: unlike the NFL or the NBA, teams don’t draft for need. Even the best prospects are too far away [...]

Chris Johnson: “I am still the best back in the league”

It was just 2009 when Chris Johnson ran for 2,006 yards with the Tennessee Titans, and he appeared to be the best running back in the league. He became a big believer in his own ability, declaring that he would rush for 2,500 yards the following year. He came up slightly short of that. Or [...]

Detroit Grand Prix marred by the city’s crappy roads

Just I the other day, I was telling someone that you can tell you enter into Michigan by two different things (besides the Pure Michigan signs that welcome you); everyone starts driving faster because of the 70 MPH limit, and the roads get extremely rough. The road conditions in Michigan are just horrible and always [...]

Fan runs on field, fist bumps Nick Swisher

Here’s a dumb fan in Detroit that ran on to the field to fist bump New York Yankees right fielder, Nick Swisher. This happened with two outs in the ninth inning in Sunday’s game against the Tigers. Looks like Swisher allowed it, but was probably pretty nervous. Can’t trust a drunk, ya know? He’ll spend the [...]
