Oh Nothing, Just Another Mighty Walk-Off Dinger From Vladimir Guerrero Jr. 

The New Hampshire Fisher Cats entered the bottom of the seventh* inning Sunday down 5-3 to the Binghamton Rumble Ponies. The very brink of a loss! Whatever would they do? Whosoever could save them from these dire circumstances?

LeBron In Full Must-Win Mode Is An Unsolvable Problem LeBron In Full Must-Win Mode Is An Unsolvable Problem

The Cavs opened Game 3 with a huge 22-6 run, and that was more or less that. This was not a case of the winning team grabbing an early lead behind a fluky start and nursing it cautiously until the final buzzer—the Cavs were forceful and decisive early, and did some cool and different things to challenge Boston’s…

Shortstop Pedro Florimon Pitches Perfect Inning, Then Socks Mighty Dinger Shortstop Pedro Florimon Pitches Perfect Inning, Then Socks Mighty Dinger

The dreaded Cardinals chased Phillies ace Jake Arrieta after just three innings in Friday night’s gloomy, rain-delayed tilt in St. Louis. The score was then 4-0; by the time reliever Drew Hutchison finished the sixth inning it was 9-2; the game finally became a laugher when Yacksel Rios allowed another three runs in…

Mookie Betts Played Kevin Gausman For A Fool

Mookie Betts, the best non–Mike Trout player in baseball who makes everything look impossibly easy, has a history of showing as little mercy as possible to the division rival Baltimore Orioles. He continued that trend during last night’s 6-2 victory over the O’s in Boston.

Katie Ledecky Broke A World Record She's Already Broken Five Times Before Katie Ledecky Broke A World Record She's Already Broken Five Times Before

Nobody can be blamed for not paying too much attention to swimming in a when the Olympics aren’t going on, but whenever Katie Ledecky gets in the pool, I’ll make an exception.

Here Are Some Guys Willingly Getting Trucked Into The Sky By A Rampaging Bull Here Are Some Guys Willingly Getting Trucked Into The Sky By A Rampaging Bull

This event, which appears to ask its participants to stand in a small ring and wait for a charging bull to visit its fury upon them, is hard to understand. Why would any human being volunteer for this?

Albert Almora Jr. Discovers Invisible Stair In Center Field Wall

If baseball players didn’t wear cleats, Tyler Flowers would have earned himself a dinger in his first at-bat tonight. But because outfielders have those spikes on their feet, the Braves catcher’s long fly ball to center field was hauled in by the Cubs’ Albert Almora Jr., who dug his cleats into the wall to gain some…

Please Just Call Up Vladimir Guerrero Jr., He's Too Good For The Minor Leagues Please Just Call Up Vladimir Guerrero Jr., He's Too Good For The Minor Leagues

Truly I say to you today: Double-A ball offers no challenge to Vladimir Guerrero Jr. besides that of a blank canvas upon which he can paint wild highlights. The 19-year-old slugger has spent his time with the New Hampshire Fisher Cats smacking big dingers and generally looking like he belongs at a higher level, and…

Josh Reddick Fries Mike Trout At Third, Then Cooks Ian Kinsler At The Plate

Astros right fielder Josh Reddick had to have assumed he taught the Angels a lesson about running on his arm in the sixth inning tonight. When Mike Trout tried to move from first to third on a Shohei Ohtani single, he quickly became, in the accurate words of the announcer, “a dead duck.”

Adeiny Hechavarria Turned Elastic To Dodge An Easy Tag

Rays shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria, fully recovered from his freak injury last week, blasted straight through his third-base coach’s stop sign while attempting to score a go-ahead run against the Royals, but redeemed himself with an elastic slide that eluded a cannon throw from Jorge Soler and a tag attempt from…

Shohei Ohtani's Starting To Reveal All His Powers Shohei Ohtani's Starting To Reveal All His Powers

Shohei Ohtani has a fastball that he can pump up to 100 mph and dot on all four corners of the strike zone. He has a splitter that dives straight into hell and takes the souls of many batters with it. Those are two very good pitches. If you throw those two pitches exclusively, you’re basically late-era Roger Clemens…

Mookie Betts Makes Baseball Look Too Damn Easy

Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts is having a ridiculous season. He leads the majors in dingers and runs and batting average and OPS, and he’s 25 years old, and, not coincidentally, his team is tied for the best record in baseball. And he’s a two-time Gold Glove winner. And he bowls perfect games. It’s enough to make a…

Brooks Koepka Drops In A Ridiculous 208-Yard Albatross Brooks Koepka Drops In A Ridiculous 208-Yard Albatross

Brooks Koepka shot a course-record-tying 63 today in the final round of The Players, which was good enough to bring him into the top five of the leaderboard. Lots of good stuff in a 63, but the true highlight of his day was an amazing 208-yard approach shot on the par-5 16th hole. Check this shit out:

Innocent Beer Rudely Displaced By Baseball

As baseball catching implements go, the beer cup is less than ideal—it’s minimally flexible, the opening is only slightly larger than the diameter of a baseball, and there’s dang beer in there! But a man will do desperate things to bring home a foul ball from a May Giants-Pirates game:

Here Are Two More Dope Baseball Things Shohei Ohtani Can Do Here Are Two More Dope Baseball Things Shohei Ohtani Can Do

One of the most fun things about watching a fresh new baseball darling rack up regular major-league at-bats is all the opportunities to see how the skills you’ve been hearing so much about, all those precious tools, actually manifest themselves on the field. You know a guy has power, but does he have big-boy,…

Show Me Nothing But Vlad Guerrero Jr. Dingers Show Me Nothing But Vlad Guerrero Jr. Dingers

Lots of sports news to consume today. I hear T.J. McConnell did some things. It looks like the Raptors soiled themselves in front of LeBron once again. The Caps did a hockey accomplishment of some sort. I don’t care about any of it! All I care about, for the rest of the summer, is Vlad Guerrero’s stout son thundering…

Mario Balotelli Scores Wonderful Goal, Talks Shit About Referees Mario Balotelli Scores Wonderful Goal, Talks Shit About Referees

When last we heard from our favorite mohawked madman, Mario Balotelli, it right about this time last year as he came to the close of what turned out to be an unexpectedly impressive but still quintessentially Balotellian inaugural season with Nice in France. We are delighted to inform you that since then, Balotelli…

MMA Fighter Ends Main Event In Nine Seconds With One-Punch Knockout MMA Fighter Ends Main Event In Nine Seconds With One-Punch Knockout

Kyoji Horiguchi and Ian McCall headlined this weekend’s Rizin 10 in Fukuoka, Japan, and the two former UFC flyweight contenders put on a highlight-dense fight, in that there was one highlight and it took up the entire fight. Horiguchi unhooked McCall’s jaw in five seconds on the first punch he threw, knocking him out…

Max Scherzer Is A Fire-Breathing Dragon Max Scherzer Is A Fire-Breathing Dragon

The marquee pitching matchup of the day had former Cy Young winners Max Scherzer and Jake Arrieta pitching the rubber match of the Phillies-Nationals series. Arrieta was fine—he allowed a run on two hits and two walks in six innings—but Mad Max was downright historic:

GGG Is Back To Obliterating His Opponents

Gennady Golovkin destroyed Vanes Martirosyan tonight in California, knocking out the Armenian-American in the second round and leading us all to wonder if anyone will ever beat the Kazakh superstar.
