Hunter Pence’s stolen scooter returns

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

The nation breathed easier on Wednesday night as San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence's missing scooter was returned to its rightful owner. In an incident that will no doubt be remember as this generation's version of the Lindbergh Baby kidnapping and Patty Hearst's disappearance, Pence's regular ride to the ballpark was ...

Jeremy Affeldt Should Be Placed In Bubble Wrap

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

San Francisco Giants reliever Jeremy Affeldt might want to spend his time away from the ballpark in a bubble. Seriously. In September, Affeldt sliced his non-throwing hand to the bone while separating frozen hamburgers (has happened to the best of us). But now, Affeldt's home life has injured him again. The left-hander sprained ...

Jonathan Sanchez Makes Me Hate Baseball Even More

Saturday, July 11th, 2009

Pablo Sandoval And I Have No Beef

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

As a fan of the San Diego Padres I know I'm supposed to hate every member of opposing National League West teams. I really, really want to adhere to that line of thinking. Just perusing the other NL West rosters and selecting a random name I can tell you that ...

Worst Video Game Cover Athlete Ever?

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

I've got a shiny penny for anyone who can name the athlete pictured above. Too late, it's none other than Bill Swift. Billy Swift, on the cover of a video game. And not just any game, this was World Series Baseball '95 for Sega Genesis. I played that game constantly. McD ...

Baseball is Apparently Still Played in Kansas City

Let's talk, for a second, about a an interleague series that next to nobody cared about, shall we? Well, let's just talk about one game.First of all, that photo of Tim Lincecum in mid-air is pretty cool.Second, judging by the box score, the Royals, featuring mostly guys I've never heard ...
