John Jaso Tries to Say Hi to His Friends and Possibly Sell Them Some Weed, but Hard-ass Usher Just Says No

John Jaso Hippie

Ah, yes.. Hippies vs. Hard-ass Ushers. A rivalry that has been passed on through generations from ballpark to ballpark. Tropicana Field is known for packing them in so I can understand where this lady is coming from. What happens when John Jaso is down there talking to former teammates and coaches and some 78-year-old retired dude just happens to be coming to sit down in the only seat occupied in an entirely empty row? I’m gonna go out on a limb and assume John Jaso is a lover, not a fighter. You know what they always say: Peace, love and baseball. One love. Buffalo soldier. Other hippie things. Although, I would pay to see John Jaso try to passively ward off the onslaught from an old man who has nothing to lose.

The way the whole thing shook out was quite humorous. In between trips to the concession stand for candy and hot dogs, John Jaso wanted to throw a couple of ‘sups’ out to his boys from his days in Tampa. Were they going to talk about the time they got tossed from one of Tampa’s 3,824 strip clubs or the time one of them got so drunk the night before a day game and lost the battle vs. bubble guts in the dugout? I don’t really know. Maybe he’ll tell us when he comes on the podcastContinue reading

Cup Check: Are Baseballs Ruining America’s Pastime?

As summer gives way to fall the MLB postseason is finally upon us. It was a long and grueling regular season filled with errant helmet throws, pointless rules debates, and, worst of all, the Mets. One hot button issue that has taken over the world of contact sports of late has been concussions and the risks they pose for future health concerns. While head trauma is certainly a very real and very scary threat, we witnessed another very scary moment on Tuesday night during the Yankees/Twins Wild Card matchup (at least most guys would consider it scary). I’m hear to bring your attention to another player safety issue that doesn’t get nearly as much press coverage as it deserves: dudes getting hit in the junk. Continue reading

Scooter Gennett: Oh What a Night!

We entered the 2017 Reds regular season having low expectations, mostly due to the trading away of fan favorite players and a lack of post season appearances. Tight competition in the NL Central has allowed this team to stay relevant up to this point in the season. You can’t deny the fight in this years team, they have received outstanding performances from unexpected players.

Clown Fight Bro

McGregor versus Mayweather may never happen, but until we see the “SUPER FIGHT” (aka Mayweather dance around for about an hour) Harper versus Strickland is what we have to watch.

Ben Margot, Associated Press

Being a 24 year star Harper has already made a name for himself in Major League Baseball. It does seem as if he tries to put on a bad boy image at times, but on Memorial Day he picked the wrong guy to try that with.
