“I suppose it’s possible this is part of some other, thematically different Under Armour ad that was mostly left on the cutting-room floor. But I’m putting it at even-money that Bryce Harper actually powerlifts shirtless in the dark wearing glow-in-the-dark neon-green socks, and insisted Under Armour show him as such in the commercial.”

that’s some clown workout gear, bro.

Much like the sale of the Dodgers, the sale of the Padres appears heavily dependent on massive broadcasting revenue from cable networks who then drive up their prices to cable and satellite providers — and it then gets passed on to you.

It’s enough to make you cut the cord, get a digital antenna box, and just pony up for an MLB.TV subscription.

You may not like Keith Olbermann’s politics or attitude (that’s me, sometimes), but I think he’s dead-on here: trading Hanley Ramirez to the Dodgers in the Marlins’ first season in a new stadium in Miami is the death knell for big-league baseball in Florida — the Rays will never get a stadium now and will have to leave to make some semblance of money.

The state loves having spring training but can’t sustain  a major league team. And the worst part is that Jeffrey Loria, one of the most loathsome people in pro sports (remember les Expos, fucker!) not only got to slink his way out of Montreal, he was allowed to own a team again and hoodwink the Miami-Dade public officials into a $400 million taxpayer swindle of a stadium that comes without easy access via mass transit or decent parking (by either car or boat! when one could only imagine how many schools that money could have renovated or built.

That swindle cost a mayor his job in a recall election and were I a Marlins fan, I would want the rest of the public officials who signed off on it held to serious account by either criminal or independent civil investigations.

The only joy I get out of this is laughing at Jose Reyes, who languishes in Miami while David Wright is playing much better ball in Citi Field these days.

Charlie Pierce tears a piece in Tucker Carlson’s vanity project trying to link Bryce Harper to conservatism a new one.

Oh, streakers. The best part is really the AP caption: “A man runs on the field before the start of the seventh inning of a baseball game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday, May 24, 2012, in St. Louis.”

Do not run on Rick Ankiel.

My mother ran on Rick Ankiel’s arm once.
Once.

This non-double play event is more exciting than anything we saw in person on Friday night.
That being said, holy balls that’s a throw.

Now I get it. 90 feet to home plate was just too short of a distance. 
His arm wanted to be a cannon all along.

Bear Grylls decides to throw a heater by lighting the baseball on fire at the Dodger game. He opted for this because drinking his own piss in public would probably have been a bit too unsightly.

"Metsoloft also works for fans of the Baltimore Orioles, Pittsburgh Pirates, Oakland Raiders, Washington Redskins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New Orleans Hornets, Charlotte Bobcats, and any team in Ohio and Minnesota."

You can change the players and you can change the manager, but no team does the little things wrong better than the Chicago White Sox. Nobody runs into outs or give opponents extra outs like that slow-pitch softball team.

This makes the South Siders make sense and makes it even more inexplicable that they actually won a World Series in the past decade.

Finally, the Mets do something good and ditch the black.

the oddities of UK English.

I am reading one of the Guardian’s series of pieces it did with an exclusive interview with Red Sox & Liverpool FC owner John Henry and it is weird to see Carl Crawford described as “left-arm” rather than “left-handed.”
