  • The List of 14 MLB Players Who Will Be Suspended For Steroids

    Breaking news for all baseball fans up to 20 MLB players are set to be suspended for PEDs. Since the news is breaking there are tons of rumors flying but here are the players that have been confirmed to be on MLB’s hit list. Six players are missing from the list but we will add them as soon as the names are released.

  • Babe Ruth’s Home Runs in Perspective (Infographic)

    Babe Ruth’s home run numbers compared to the players of today are impressive. Compared to his peers they are basically unfathomable. An attempt to put them in perspective. In 1920 The Sultan of Swat hit more home runs than every team in the league except the Phillies and in 1921 hit more than the second and third leaders on the list combined.

  • Yanks & Red Sox Jump in Fear as Thunder Booms Close to Stadium

    On Sunday night, the Yankees and Red Sox game was delayed three times because of scattered thunderstorms. During the third delay, a select few from both teams decided to wait out the delay under the safe awning of the dugout until thunder and lightning struck a little to close to home. The dugout cam from both ends captures players jumping in shock, holding each other frightfully as the sound blew through Yankee Stadium. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, the 6’4″ catcher for the Sox, had enough and shuffled into the clubhouse after the boom sent him airborne. .

  • Elimination of Human Error vs. Sports Tradition: The Replay Debate.

    The game’s officials—whether they’re called the referee or the umpire—are often the least popular person on the field during a sporting event. When the official makes a poor call, it can lead to fan-based incensement of Steve Barton-like proportions. If you are unsure of the aforementioned statement, then just ask Don Denkinger—a former Major League Baseball Umpire who, despite an illustrious career in the profession, suffered through many threatening letters from St. Louis Cardinals fans in the wake of the 1985 World Series. This adversity happened as a result of Denkinger’s erroneous call—one that placed Kansas City Royals batter, Jorge Orta safely at first.

  • Can Yu Do it? Yu Darvish Could Join a Very Exclusive Stirkeout Club (Infographic)

    Yu Darvish could become the second foreign born player to reach 300K’s. The only other player to accomplish this feat in the modern era is Pedro Martinez. Darvish is on pace to break Pedro’s record, exploding in his first couple of years in the majors. He obviously has the height factor, standing on the mound at 6’5″, trumping Pedro by 6″. IF he continues to walk the path he’s on, Yu is projected to hit the 350 mark.  

  • RSVLTS Visits The Field of Dreams

    Last weekend our sports correspondent Scott Flato went to Rochester, NY for the Pepsi Max Field of Dreams Game. He got to hang out with some of the biggest names in MLB history. Wade Boggs showed off his tattoos, Ricky Henderson played the “name all the teams you’ve played for challenge” and Fred “The Crime Kitty Cat” McGriff looks like he is still in playing shape.

  • Your Current MLB Batting Avg Leader Got Owned in Wiffle Ball

    As of today, James Loney leads the MLB in batting avg and much desrved. Loney’s well oiled batting eye has gained him acclaim from around the league and now he has has the top spot to prove it. Although Loney has forty less at bats than the man in second place (Miguel Cabrera), it’s still a feat for the rising star to be put in a category with the Triple Crown winner. Though Loney has 11 multi-hit outings already this season, he thinks we forgot about a segment on Sports Science a few years back yonder, in which Jimbo was featured going head to head with one of the best wiffle ball pitchers to ever play the game, Joel De Roche, a Wiffle Ball Cy Young Winner (it exists). De Roche made the “rising star” look flat out silly, making the ball dance and dive to a point that left Loney clueless. After Loney was given a bat that matched the size of a big league club, he eventually made contact, but no one remembers that.  People don’t forget, James.

  • Good Guy Matt Kemp

    There were no reporters. No TV cameras. This was not a publicity stunt. The Good Man Project tells us how Matt Kemp did an amazing thing for a young Dodgers’ fan who is battling cancer. 

  • Scenes From Mothers Day 2013 Around Major League Baseball [15 High Quality Photos]

    Major League Baseball honored Mother’s across America yesterday with the annual tradition that sees players using pink bats, pink arm bands, even the bases and line-up cards are pink. Much of this equipment is auctioned off after the game to raise money for breast cancer research. Mother’s Day seemed to produce a flair for the dramatic this year with Chris Sale tossing a one-hitter against the Los Angeles Angels. All in all it was a great day and if you couldn’t make it to the ballpark because you were meeting up with Mom here are a few pictures from about MLB.

  • High School & College Scouting Reports For 28 MLB Greats

    MLB scouts have a tough job. Each year they check out thousands of talented baseball players and have to make a snap judgement on whether or not their team should spend millions of dollars draft the player. Then, when the draft takes place and literally hundreds of players are drafted only a fraction will ever make a MLB club and from that small pool only a fraction will become MLB all-stars.

  • From Attempted Suicide to MLB Superstar: The Life and Very Complicated Times of Ken Griffey Jr.

    Despite spending the last decade or so of his career often injured, Ken Griffey Jr. was a 13-time All-Star, a 10-time Gold Glove winner, a seven-time Silver Slugger award winner, 1997 MVP, 6th all-time in career home runs with 630, and he accumulated nearly 80 WAR (more on “WAR” in the Bonus Facts below). Any number you look at, it’s clear Ken Griffey Jr., nicknamed “The Kid,” was one of the greatest players ever to step onto a baseball field. He became a superstar when he was only 19 years old, starting in center field for the Seattle Mariners in 1989. But just because someone is successful, famous, and rich (it’s estimated he made over $150 million during his playing career) doesn’t mean they can’t be sad or, even, depressed. After becoming one of the biggest can’t-miss prospects in baseball history, at the age of 18 the man who would not only be known for that beautiful swing, but also for his infectious and seemingly constant smile, attempted suicide.

  • 30 Rare and Iconic HQ Photos of Willie Mays

    Willie Mays is widely considered to be the greatest all-around baseball player of all-time. He could do everything. In the pre-PED era he hit 660 home runs, fourth all-time and hit over 50 home runs in 1955 and 1965, representing the longest time span between 50-plus home run seasons for any player in Major League Baseball history. Mays won two MVP awards and tied Stan Musial’s record with 24 appearances in the All-Star Game. Ted Williams said, “They invented the All-Star Game for Willie Mays.” He was a center fielder, famous for making “The Catch,” and won a record-tying 12 Gold Gloves starting the year the award was introduced six seasons into his career. Today as we celebrate his 82nd birthday let’s look back at the life and career of Willie Mays.    

  • The DiMaggios: Three Brothers, Their Passion for Baseball, Their Pursuit of the American Dream (Book)

  • “Shep Diagram” GIFS Are Changing How We View MLB’s Top Pitchers

    The “Shep Diagram” is a new way to view the mastery of the top pitchers in Major League Baseball. It all began in late April when a savvy baseball fan named DShep created a GIF of Yu Darvish showing all five of his pitchers layered over each other. The fascinating GIF showing the consistency of his release point, paired with his amazing ball movement, was picked up all over the web. This form of analyzing pitchers has since been coined the “Shep Diagram” it is beginning to cross over to the mainstream as MLB Network created their own Shep Diagram for Justin Verlander. DShep, now working with Fangraphs, has promised many new creations to come. He has said that DA Dickey and Clay Buchholz are on the docket but for now enjoy the original Yu Darvish Shep Diagram and MLB Network’s Justin Verlander version.

  • Ranking the Top 25 MLB Prospects by Name

    There are 2 types of baseball fans these days – the saber “stat-nerds” and the old school “I saw it with my own eyes” crowd. I’m about to attempt… nay, prove, that there is another type of talent evaluation. I don’t judge books by their cover; I judge them by their name… which I guess would technically be on the cover but… I got nothing. I know some have their theories about names translating to success, but I have never been wrong. Never. Not 15 times. I remember grasping at straws, trying to convince my friends that “Lastings Milledge” sounded like a superstar from the 1920s, but I knew deep down he never had a shot at Major League success… not now, not with that name. So without further ado, I present my foolproof (proof that I am a fool) breakdown of Baseball America’s 2013 top 25 prospects… by name only.

  • Critiquing Obama’s Pitching Technique

    Today, President Barack Obama posted a picture to Facebook of him greasing up the ol’ windmill, practicing his pitching form. At first glance it looks like he has a pretty good pitching motion but we talked to a pitching expert, former pro pitcher and pitching instructor to give “Ba-Rocket” Obama a few pointers. In addition to the pointers below, our expert has offered a free lesson to the Obama (afterall he’ll have three more Opening Days as the leader of the free world) so if anyone from the Secret Service is reading this and he’d like to take us up on the offer you probably already know how to find us.

  • Behind The Scenes Photos of the New York Yankees vs Army at West Point [37 Photos]

    WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) — At first glance, it seemed like the end of a typical Yankees home victory. Frank Sinatra crooned “New York, New York” over the loudspeakers and the players hugged one another. Except this game was different. Action had stopped at 5 p.m. — the visitors were batting in the eighth inning — for the lowering of the Stars and Stripes atop the towering flagpole at Trophy Point to the sounds of Reveille played by a solitary bugler. And those hugs and embraces after the final out were for the opponents, the Army Black Knights. On a sun-splashed Saturday afternoon at West Point, the Yankees revived an old tradition, traveling up the Hudson River to play Army, something they hadn’t done since 1976.

  • Why 100 MPH Pitchers Are The New Normal For MLB [Infographic]

    As Major League Baseball prepares to open its season Sunday, high-octane pitching is dominating the game as never before. One day it’s the Cincinnati Reds’ Aroldis Chapman, the”Cuban Missile,” firing 103-mile-per-hour fastballs out of the bullpen. The next, starters like the Washington Nationals’ Stephen Strasburg and the Tampa Bay Rays’ David Price are clocking triple digits deep into games when they should be tiring. In 2003, there was only one pitcher who threw at least 25 pitches 100 mph or faster. In 2012, there were seven. A growing number of fastball pitchers are throwing at speeds reached by only a handful of hurlers a decade ago. This infographic explains why the velocity revolution hit warp speed, and what it means for baseball.
