Things are getting ridiculous with Ron Jaworski and Johnny Manziel

Remember back at the end of February when ESPN turned Ron Jaworski’s over-the-top thoughts on Johnny Manziel into the major news story of the day?  It was everything annoying about ESPN all wrapped up into one neat little package – celebrity obsession, making the news instead of covering it, embracing debate, and the ESPN Echo […]


Keith Hernandez Ogles Female Fan Eating Huge Hot Dog

Mets broadcaster Keith Hernandez has already been in the news this week thanks to the Brooklyn Cyclones and their upcoming “magic loogie” bobblehead giveaway. Now, he’s relevant for another reason. Hernandez and play-by-play man Gary Cohen were calling the Mets-Diamondbacks game on Tuesday night for SNY when the cameras found a couple in the stands […]

Joe Buck and Greg Norman will reportedly call the US Open for Fox

After Greg Norman revealed in August that Fox had offered him a job to be their lead golf analyst, there was only one direction that Fox was going to go in their maiden voyage with the USGA. Now it looks like we’re getting very close to seeing it become a reality.  Sports Business Journal reports that […]

New York columnist puts together terrible, bizarre anti-stats column

I’ve learned to tune out the seemingly never-ending parade of writers who resort to ad hominem attacks when they write columns about sabermetrics. More often than not, the columns go something along the lines of “derp derp computer geek mom’s basement spreadsheets watch the game” without really providing any sort of actual criticism or context, […]


Rate the local MLB announcers – AL Central

The American League Central has a number of broadcast crews with plenty of tenure, but little national exposure. Well.. except for some guy in Chicago, of course. Give each broadcast crew a rating, and if you have strong opinions in either direction, let us know in the comments. We’ll use that feedback in the final […]


Joakim Noah hates snow in April just like you do

It’s been a brutal winter across America, one of the worst and longest on record.  We’ve experienced double digit negative temperatures in the midwest and what has seemed to be constant snowfall.  And now it’s April 15th and it’s snowing again.  Two days ago it was 80 degrees.  Seriously.  Now it’s 30 degrees and snowing.

Video: Here’s the most anti-climactic final out call ever

Here’s an amusing clip from last night’s Nationals-Marlins game.  Washington won 9-2 and Nats radio announcer Charlie Slowes seems to be caught off guard for the final out and calls it as a normal pitch until he realizes the game is actually over.  Either that, or he’s bored out of his mind for an April […]

Doug Glanville - May 23, 2013

ESPN MLB analyst Doug Glanville says he was racially profiled by police

ESPN MLB analyst Doug Glanville is a smart, thoughtful individual.  After his 9 year baseball career concluded, he became a successful writer featured in the New York Times, ESPN.com, and Time and wrote a book entitled The Game From Where I Stand. It wasn’t a shock to see Glanville writing a column for The Atlantic, […]
