The Eagles Pulled Off A Ridiculously Elaborate Baseball-Themed TD Celebration – Deadspin

Sunday, October 08, 2017

Famous South Jersey native and baseball player Mike Trout is at the Eagles game today, so the team’s offense performed an impressively elaborate baseball celebration to honor him (and possibly recruit him for the Phillies, who knows). The Eagles are rolling today: Carson Wentz threw for 121 yards and three touchdowns in the first quarter as the Eagles built a 21-0 lead against the Cardinals. Wentz should be docked points…

Sunday, October 08, 2017

Given a night of restless sleep — and after perhaps letting an excoriation from the news media (including from commentators on the YES Network, which is partly owned by the Yankees) sink in — Girardi ventured to the Bronx on Saturday, disassembled his standard defensive armor and offered up something unusual: a mea culpa. “I screwed up,” he said. “In hindsight, yeah,” he added. “I wish I would have challenged…

Jack Del Rio: ‘Embarrassing’ that Raiders play on baseball field during first month – CBSSports.com

Saturday, October 07, 2017

The Raiders are still more than two years away from moving into a shiny new stadium when they relocate to Las Vegas, but until then they will continue to play at the Oakland Coliseum, a venue they share with Major League Baseball’s Oakland A’s. This means that for the month or so the two seasons overlap, the Raiders play their home games on a field that includes a baseball diamond….

Every Hot Dog in Major League Baseball, Ranked – Lifehacker

Saturday, October 07, 2017

Image credit: Pexels I didn’t need a survey to tell me that AT&T Park in San Francisco has the best hot dogs in Major League Baseball. I would have likely made that declaration while sitting in some less-superior stadium eating a sub-par dog, but I wouldn’t have had facts (other than my own detailed personal research) to back up that claim. Except now I do. ReviewTrackers recently analyzed 130,000 reviews…

Yasiel Puig wags (Sean M. Haffey/Getty Images) LOS ANGELES — Yasiel Puig came barreling, headlong and tongue-first, into third base late Friday night, and it was there, in a cloud of dust maybe 40 feet from the Los Angeles Dodgers’ dugout, that a normal human — which is to say, one who did not wish for the fleshy, muscular organ in his mouth to become its own story on the…

Major League Baseball is rising — so who is the face? – Yahoo Finance

Bryce Harper gets hurt, Mike Trout’s team misses the playoffs & now Aaron Judge is the face of baseball? Absolutely refuse to buy that. — Bradley Shatraw (@shatty_14) October 4, 2017 But Trout plays on the LA Angels, which hasn’t made it to the World Series since 2002, never in Trout’s time. The face of baseball needs to be known to casual fans, and needs to be seen in the…

Jose Altuve, Baseball’s Unlikeliest Superstar – The Atlantic

Friday, October 06, 2017

If Altuve does win AL MVP next month, he will be one of the least likely honorees in recent history. As unpredictable as baseball-player development can be, most of the best athletes were still either top draft picks or big-money international signees. Take the last eight AL MVPs, for example: 2016: Mike Trout—former first-round pick 2015: Josh Donaldson—former first-round pick 2014: Trout 2013: Miguel Cabrera—$1.9 million signing bonus out of…
