Giancarlo Stanton has signed the hugest contract in the history of baseball: 13 years and $325 million. The guy is only 25 years old and could easily make anyone his age really go through a "what the hell am I doing with my life" type of moment.
Everybody knows the Boston Red Sox boast three World Series rings in ten years, the oldest ballpark in the majors, and the most rabid fan base in organized baseball. Who knew they also had a poet laureate?
Suppose I knew ahead of time that the Giants were going to win the World Series this year. Suppose God came to me in a dream and said, "Jeremy, here's what's going to happen. The Giants will win the Wild Card game." I wish!
What can CMOs learn from the MLB's logo success? It may seem obvious, but it's simple: If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Once again, baseball writers are about to discriminate against a talented player for merely being the best at his position. If the sport was more about being a meritocracy, we would have a few more votes for Atlanta Braves relief pitcher Craig Kimbrel for the Cy Young Award.
The incessant airing of Viagra's nauseating British-blonde-on-a-bed commercial during both this October's football games and throughout the baseball playoffs illustrates how tone-deaf the National Football League and Major League Baseball remain when it comes to truly embracing family viewers.
In a long-lost 2005 phone conversation transcript recently recovered somewhere deep in the Sudan, Montecore, the infamous Bengal tiger who attacked il...
With this postseason, these two teams have pretty much solidified the identities they've carved out in recent years: the Giants rise up when it counts, while the Dodgers fold.
Is this really an appropriate, or necessary, gift to a pitcher who this year earned $3.75 million? If Bumgarner wants a new car, he can certainly afford to buy one, and to pick the car he really wants.
Even if you didn't and you don't know or care that much about baseball or sports, there are a number of things that made this World Series remarkable and also some important things we can learn from it that go way beyond baseball and sports in general.
Everyone deserves to say, "One day I would love to..." Everyone deserves to dream that way. But slavery keeps people from being able to say, "One day I want to be..." Slavery kills the very ability to dream.
Oscar's life was cut too short. Those of us who watched him grow will always remember the anticipation of bigger and better from the youthful star as the years progressed.
Did you miss Aaron Lewis's now-infamous flub of the national anthem at the start of Sunday's World Series game? Don't worry, no fewer than 10 YouTube users have posted a video for you to watch. Maybe you want to see what all the fuss was about. Or, if you're one of the many who have criticized him, maybe you just need to get a life.
If the Giants were hoping to win the World Series at home, the Royals had a different plan. In the best of seven series, Kansas City took a 2-1 lead after edging San Francisco 3-2 for the win tonight. It was a hard fought game from both teams but the Royals came out on top giving both an offensive and defensive effort from the start.
Ferguson is a little over a three and half-hours drive from Kansas City, where Jackie Robinson began his baseball career; he started in the Negro Leagues as a member of the Kansas City Monarchs. October 24, 2014 marks the 42nd anniversary of Robinson's death -- significant because that is the number that Robinson wore.
The near monopolists are at bat and are swinging for the fences in a bid to kill open Internet rules and dominate the online ecosystem. I see FCC Chairman Wheeler on the mound, trying to decide what to pitch while millions of interested parties fill the stands.
