Add "Not Getting Ejected" To List Of Bryce Harper's Missed Goals For 2018 Add "Not Getting Ejected" To List Of Bryce Harper's Missed Goals For 2018

Beefiest Chum Luke Voit Has To Do Something With All That Surplus Power

The one-armed bench press seems like a fine strength training exercise, although probably there are better ways of doing it than with a full barbell smashing off your chest. At any rate, if you were going to pick a baseball player to show up in a video doing one-armed 135-pound bench presses with a full barbell, you’d…

White Sox first baseman José Abreu will miss his team’s upcoming series with the Indians, as he was hospitalized and treated for “an ingrown hair infection in his right thigh.” That’s disconcerting and gross enough on its own, but when combined with the fact that Abreu just underwent surgery for a “strangled testicle”…
