March 29, 2017

Thrilling introduction videos used to be synonymous with sports video games. And although recent sports games have lacked in providing great intros, the same cannot be said for “MLB The Show 17.” “The Show,” which was released Tuesday exclusively for Sony’s PlayStation 4, greets gamers with the type of unique, chill-inducing video the industry has been missing in recent years. The video uses real broadcast calls, as well as chalk illustrations,…

Cubs Send Hottest Prospect to Triple-A in Latest Roster Shakeup

March 28, 2017

If you’ve watched a Cubs game this spring, you’ve likely wondered who Ian Happ was and why you weren’t already aware of him. Surely a bat like this is a bonafide major league piece of lumber, you’d assume. After all, five homers, 17 RBI, and a .417 average stands out across all boundaries. But Happ, of course, didn’t have a position on the World Champs, and the Cubs made it…

Tim Tebow should pass on reigning Cy Young winners

March 28, 2017

Tim Tebow is still trying to make his way in professional baseball. Progress remains … suspect. Earlier this month, we shared video of Tebow, a very famous farmhand for the New York Mets, striking out on three pitches against reigning American League Cy Young Award winner Rick Porcello.

VIDEO: Watch Barry Bonds Launch Homers With Ease in BP

March 27, 2017

Does this surprise anyone really? Barry Bonds, steroid use or no-steroid use, is one of the best hitters of all-time. There’s really no denying that. He could smash dingers like literally no one else in history could, as apparent by his MLB record.
