Congratulations, Jim Thome, Don't Get Anybody Pregnant

Jim Thome’s back was aching, his toe was throbbing and his quad was cramping, turning his pursuit of 600 home runs into a painful endeavor that made him wonder if he would even reach the milestone before season’s end.

The Dugout: Meet the UltraMets

By | 21 Comments

In case you haven't been paying attention to the Mets since last Friday, these are the scores from their last four games, not counting the one in progress as this is being written: 6-25 @Rangers W 14-5 6-26 @Rangers W 8-5 6-28 @Tigers W 14-3 6-29 @Tigers W 16-9 Something crazy is happening to the Mets, and in the world of the Dugout that's a more dangerous topic than "Roger Clemens stabbed somebody in the heart and paid to have it covered up".

Is This The Worst Call In The History Of Sports?

By | 22 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/05/philadelphia-phillies-roy-halladay-pitches-a-perfect-game"> In case you've been too busy watching real sports to notice, MLB pitching has gotten much better thanks to the fact that hitters have stopped injecting steroids into their bums. There have been two perfect games in the last month, only the <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/05/players-pitch-perfect-games-on-and-off-the-field">19th</a> and <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/05/philadelphia-phillies-roy-halladay-pitches-a-perfect-game">20th</a> instances in MLB history.

Here's video of that big brawl between the Red Sox and Tigers that happened earlier this week when the Sawks' Kevin Youkilis took a fastball in the back, and Youk is so damn scaring looking that he might has well be jumping out of a flaming van wearing leg irons and an orange jump suit.
