Even though Justin Verlander won the 2011 MVP and Cy Young awards, the Detroit Tigers’ ace doesn’t put himself above anyone. Verlander checked out a New York City little league game after appearing at the MLB fan cave and decided to tweet a bit about it.
Now I’m at Murry Bergtraum Blazers vs Midwood Hornets game in downtown NYC doing some play by play #whynot?
Phrasing and word choice are everything, and Matt Stairs proved that to be true back in 2008.
Towards the end of his career, Stairs became a pinch-hitter with out of the park power. He only had 17 regular season at-bats with the Phillies in 2008, so when he hit a game-winning bomb in the playoffs, Stairs was rather emotional:
When you get that nice celebration coming into the dugout and you’re getting your ass hammered by guys — there’s no better feeling than to have that done.
See? Couldn’t he have just talked about camaraderie and brotherhood?
Instead, he comes off as a dude who craves a dick up his bunghole. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but phrasing and word choice are everything.
Jose Canseco and Bud Selig haven’t always had a harmonious relationship. How could they? After all, Canseco resembles everything that went awry in baseball throughout Selig’s tenure as commissioner.
Just one month ago, Anthony Pappalardo of vice.com asked the author of “Juiced” which three human beings he would most like to fight. Canseco answered, “I would love to get in the ring with Mike Tyson. The baddest man in the planet. Shaq was another one, and maybe Bud Selig but he is too old.”
Well, Canseco attended the 100 year anniversary at Fenway Park this afternoon, and as luck would have it, he found himself next to baseball’s commissioner.
I am right next to bud selig ,he is so lucky I am not angry at him anymore
Carl Everett, a two-time MLB all-star, accumulated over 200 career home runs and held a lifetime .271 batting average, but he is best remembered for his volatile temper and his penchant for addressing controversial topics, well, in the most controversial way possible.
We’ll spare you his rant against homosexuality because it’s not even funny. It’s just blatantly ridiculous and politically incorrect.
Instead, here’s what Everett said about dinosaurs, in our first-ever blast from the past:
“God created the sun, the stars, the heavens and the earth, and then made Adam and Eve. The Bible never says anything about dinosaurs. You can’t say there were dinosaurs when you never saw them. Someone actually saw Adam and Eve. No one ever saw a Tyrannosaurus Rex.”
So someone also saw the evil, talking serpent that convinced Eve to eat from the Tree of Knowledge, right? Without knocking the religious text, I would just like to ask you, Carl, how is that serpent more real than the thousands upon thousands of dinosaur fossils exhumed by paleontologists?
With an afternoon game in Philadelphia tomorrow afternoon, the Miami Marlins had to leave Cincinnati shortly after Sunday’s series finale. Logan Morrison, however, decided to have some fun with the hotel staff before checking out.
Bet the maids won’t be able to figure this out tomorrow… img.ly/gvGu
If you missed the moments leading up to tonight’s Cardinals/Marlins game, you missed Muhammad Ali make an on-field appearance before first pitch. Some of the players had the privilege of meeting Ali, who called Logan Morrison out.
PS I got to meet the greatest fighter of all-time, Muhammad Ali tonight. How insanely cool is that?!?He told me my trash talking was weak…
