Pirates OF Marte gets 80-game ban for PEDs
That really hurts his team.
I know we're still extremely early in the season, and all of this could change in a heartbeat... but it's a little strange having the Cubs, Indians, Giants, & Blue Jays all with a losing record.
Boston Red Sox MVP for Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS.
Nats beat the Braves & the Umpires 3-1.
Mets are blowing another one.
CB Bucknor has to be the worst umpire in MLB at calling balls and strikes. In the 4th inning Jayson Werth took all 6 pitches he saw, all outside, and was called out on strikes.
Dee Gordon of the Miami Marlins bunts a 2-run "home run" in extra innings against San Diego.
That was wild. Little league homer.
Trivia question: on this date in 1999, who hit 2 grand slams in the same inning?
I finally gave up and had to resort to Google for this. I was thinking it might be one of the Killer B's of the Houston Astros that year...but not even close.
Keeping lips sealed in case anyone else wants to take a stab at it.
Paging @JenniferS , @Nemo14 , @NYwdwfan ...
Yeah, he's not exactly a household name. That was his only really good season.
I didn't get it. That's a pretty amazing feat!
Yes it was! I vaguely remember hearing about it (that was during my senior year in high school), but had completely forgotten what team, and who it was. As @Lucky said, that was the only time this player made headlines of any significance.
Not to mention, this was the only time in history that two grand slams in the same inning were pitched out of the Park.
It's strange how so many baseball stadiums are named after Koreans.
Most notably Kim Jong-Fenway and Son Ye-Wrigley, but most kids today wouldn't know who they are.
This throw made our local news this morning. Puig can be very unpredictable to say the least. But when he's good, he's very good. He's the last outfielder a runner wants to attempt to squeeze an extra base on.
It was 36 with a wind chill of 27 in Denver last night. Good weather for football, and the kickers were busy: Washington 15, Colorado 12.
Blue Jays at Cards tonight is already cancelled due to rain forecast.
