Animated: CJ Wilson falls on his way to the mound

For average humanoids like you and I, it's always nice to be reminded that finely tuned millionaire athletes can be just as clumsy and accident prone as us norms.  Take Angels pitcher C.J.

Video: Giancarlo Stanton tries to sing Beyonce

[…]

Animated: 5 Yu Darvish pitches at once

I'm always amazed by what folks adept at technology can do with baseball GIFs and the new way to see cool things about the sport that go unseen by the naked eye.  This one from Reddit user DShep is just as mesmerizing as R.A. Dickey's knuckleball in slow motion…. and maybe even a little trippy. […]

Video: The Houston Astros are a comedy of errors

Your browser does not support iframes. The Houston Astros currently sit with the worst record in baseball at 36-74 and have become one of the laughing stocks in major professional sports.  Videos like the one above are the reason why.  In the 11th inning, with the score tied 4-4 in a home game with the […]

The Outside Corner Home Run Quiz

Dugout Digest: A Weird Night In Baseball…

Last night was just one of those weird nights in baseball.  I’m pretty sure there was a full moon or some sort of celestial alignment happening in the distant galaxies to cause what we saw around the majors. Packey already broke down this insane infield triple from last night’s M’s/A’s tilt… but that may have […]
