Let's hear it for Bud Black's early entry into the LaRussa Award for this year, changing a pitcher down 9 on the road with two outs in the eighth.

Robinson Cano has fired Scott Boras and replaced him with . . . Jay-Z.

Here is some good footage from USA supporters at last week's USA-Mexico tilt at Azteca.

Cool video, but the fan abuse we take as a given when the U.S. visits Mexico is pretty nuts.

Smart move. You know there's a 95% chance that Cashman's kids want to meet Beyonce and that's probably worth another zero on the end of his contract.

The Bruins are now the team to beat in NHL '94.

Jeremy Roenick has come out of retirement!? That's unfair!

As long as I get to see Gretzky's head bleed, I'm OK with this trade...

Great video, bender, thanks for sharing.

Yu Darvish up to 10 K after only 5 innings (against the Astros, of course), and he's also doing something else that seems rather important enough not to talk about right now. ;)

Someday I hope to attend a game at Azteca, although I agree that the abuse shouldn't just be accepted as par for the course.

Speaking of the course, how can anyone not root for this guy to repeat as Masters champion?

Darvish is three outs away from having a pretty good night.

NO!

A line drive through Darvish's legs by the #9 hitter! So close! So fucking close!

Best part about that was Yu's giant grin. And that it wasn't Nellie Cruz that blew it.

Great game.

If you're having a bad day, this will cheer you up.

And for St. Pauli no less! That does it: anyone know where I can get a St. Pauli jersey in the US? The shipping costs for most places online are prohibitive.

It never gets any less painful to see a situation like this unfold, even for a Son of Stieb.

Nobody picks up the 6'5" goalie? WTF?!
