Jose Abreu's Had A Run Of Bad Luck With His Groin Area Jose Abreu's Had A Run Of Bad Luck With His Groin Area

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”…

These Massholes Found The Missing Red Sox Division Banner, And They're Willing To Negotiate [Update] These Massholes Found The Missing Red Sox Division Banner, And They're Willing To Negotiate [Update]

Practically every stereotype of a New England sports fan is on display in this astounding Boston Globe video accompanying the story of Louie Iacuzzi of Malden—of course—who with his buddy found the Red Sox’s 2018 division title banner on the highway and now want a reward for its return.

Orioles Catcher Caleb Joseph Wants All His Teammates To Think About How Badly They Suck Orioles Catcher Caleb Joseph Wants All His Teammates To Think About How Badly They Suck

The​ Orioles​ have won 43 games this season. They’ve lost 107. They are tied with the 1988 team for most losses in franchise history. Given all this, it’d be bigger news if players weren’t talking about how much the team sucks, but catcher Caleb Joseph, who’s been with the organization since he was drafted in 2008,…

Brandon McCarthy Will Retire With The Nicest Stats In Baseball Brandon McCarthy Will Retire With The Nicest Stats In Baseball

Pitcher Brandon McCarthy, who has played for seven teams over 13 major-league seasons, said in August that this year with the Atlanta Braves would be his last. He will retire on a high note.

By Popular Demand, Here Is 10 Minutes Of Edwin Encarnacion's Dinger Crack

Cleveland Indians slugger Edwin Encarnacion blasted a 422-foot, 108-mph dinger off helpless Rays pitcher Tyler Glasnow in the sixth inning of tonight’s game. The dong was towering and impressive, but the sound Encarnacion’s bat made as it connected with the ball is the main attraction of this highlight.

Madison Bumgarner And Ryan Braun Started A Nice Little Feud Madison Bumgarner And Ryan Braun Started A Nice Little Feud

Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun had a tense standoff Sunday with Giants workhorse Madison Bumgarner, after the latter threw inside and pegged the former. With this, Bumgarner loaded the bases with two outs and paid dearly.

Flamethrowing White Sox Phenom Michael Kopech Needs Tommy John Surgery Flamethrowing White Sox Phenom Michael Kopech Needs Tommy John Surgery

After making four starts this year, White Sox rookie Michael Kopech will most likely not return to the mound until 2020. The team announced this afternoon that Kopech has a torn ulnar collateral ligament, and while he will reportedly seek a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews and consider his recovery options, it…

Report: Detroit Tigers Announcers Had A "Physical Altercation" After Game [Update] Report: Detroit Tigers Announcers Had A "Physical Altercation" After Game [Update]

Play-by-play man Mario Impemba and color commentator Rod Allen have been calling Tigers games on Fox Sports Detroit together for over a decade—and they make a great on-screen duo, for what it’s worth. But apparently, putting two men together in a small box and forcing them to talk for several hours 162 games a year…

Shohei Ohtani, Who Needs Tommy John Surgery, Is Still Out Here Smashing Dingers

Tommy John surgery—which Angels pitcher/DH Shohei Ohtani is supposed to receive, per a team announcement today—will steal a whole year from a dominant hurler in his prime. But UCL damage won’t necessarily hold back a good hitter. And luckily for all of us, what could be devastating news for any other pitcher in…

Aw Fuck, Shohei Ohtani Needs Tommy John Surgery Aw Fuck, Shohei Ohtani Needs Tommy John Surgery

As a hitter, Shohei Ohtani has seemed pretty dang healthy since returning to the Angels lineup from a UCL sprain in his throwing elbow in July. As a pitcher, however, he was kept off the mound for nearly three months while undergoing a non-surgical rehab program. When he returned last weekend, he only got seven outs…

Adrian Beltre Crushes Homer, Gets His Head Touched, Reacts Accordingly Adrian Beltre Crushes Homer, Gets His Head Touched, Reacts Accordingly

The 39-year-old version of Adrian Beltre has more hamstring injuries and isn’t as powerful as his previous iterations, but when he connects on a pitch, it sounds lovely. And regardless of his age, the Rangers third baseman will always have the same reaction when someone tries to touch his head.

Mariners Brawl With Each Other In Locker Room Mariners Brawl With Each Other In Locker Room

Mariners outfielder Dee Gordon and shortstop Jean Segura fought in the locker room before Tuesday’s game, according to reports, as a half-dozen teammates players tried to pull them apart. It started, as locker room fights are wont to do, with one of the fighters politely asking media members to stand outside the…

Shohei Ohtani Finally Smashed A Dinger Off A Lefty Shohei Ohtani Finally Smashed A Dinger Off A Lefty

Mike Scioscia has mostly protected Shohei Ohtani from lefty pitchers during his rookie season. Partly this is because the lefty-lefty matchup is often brutal for hitters; partly it’s because Albert Pujols is still kicking around, and is capable of taking those DH plate appearances and doing some damage; and partly…

Todd Frazier Duped An Umpire With A Rubber Ball

In Monday’s Mets game against the Dodgers, New York third baseman Todd Frazier made what initially looked to be a spectacular over-the-railing grab on Alex Verdugo. According to the umpire and the official box score, that’s exactly what Frazier did. But a crafty investigation by SNY’s Steve Gelbs has revealed today…

José Abreu Needed Emergency Surgery To Save A "Strangled" Testicle José Abreu Needed Emergency Surgery To Save A "Strangled" Testicle

White Sox first baseman José Abreu hasn’t played in a couple weeks, a result of an ambiguous outpatient “lower abdominal surgery” he reportedly underwent on August 20. Hernioplasty? Appendectomy? A testicle that twisted around and became tangled up in its own [passes out cold]:

Brett Phillips Somehow Stays In Game After Top-Speed Collision With Cleveland Wall [Update]

Young Kansas City Royals outfielder Brett Phillips became intimately acquainted with the right-center field wall in Cleveland tonight, taking a scary bump at full speed as he tried to chase down a Jose Ramirez hit.

Wil Myers Is Sorry For Complaining About Padres Manager Andy Green On A Fortnite Stream Wil Myers Is Sorry For Complaining About Padres Manager Andy Green On A Fortnite Stream

The San Diego Padres have been out of contention since—well, since 2011, so it makes sense that the team would have nothing more interesting going on in September than a Fortnite-adjacent kerfuffle involving a player and his manager.

Cole Hamels Has Been A Cub For A Month And He's Already Talking Shit On Brewers Fans Cole Hamels Has Been A Cub For A Month And He's Already Talking Shit On Brewers Fans

It’s September. Kids are going back to school, football is back on the TV—it’s still too darn hot, but we can’t have everything—and baseball games are starting to really feel like they matter. The slog of the season pays off with this. There’s a sound a crowd makes that only really occurs this time of year, if the…

Just Like That, The Dodgers Are In Control Just Like That, The Dodgers Are In Control

Well that happened fast. Just a week ago the Dodgers were in third place in the NL West, 4.5 games back of the Diamondbacks, and enduring all kinds of misery having to do with their season-long disappointment in close games. And here they are, on the first Monday of September, alone with the division lead after taking…
