This afternoon, the one and only Randy Johnson announced his retirement. If you ask us, they just don’t make Units as Big as they used to. Or as ugly. RJ will certainly be missed. And for the record, this is the single greatest baseball highlight of the past 20 years.
It’s been impossible to escape the media circus surrounding Tiger Woods, but something’s been lacking from all the coverage over the past few weeks: with all the focus on Elin and the women who Tiger slept with, we haven’t heard anything about the guys who were romantically involved with Tiger’s mistresses. What did Jamie Grubbs’ […]
Yesterday when we heard the news about Peter Gammons leaving ESPN, we were heartbroken. What would life be like without the Silver Fox pontificating on all things baseball? But as we read more about Gammons’ departure from ESPN, we learned that he isn’t leaving the sport altogether, but is only moving to the MLB Network, […]
While the winter meetings continue in Indianapolis, there’s still plenty of baseball news to report on in New York…especially if you’re a quality publication like the Daily News.

Derek Jeter may have seen success from the get-go, but he wasn’t always SI’s Sportsman of the Year. In fact, few remember that it wasn’t until after the ’96 series that he truly locked it in.

Rollie’s Roll: Zimmer’s back, the Lee/Burnett love fest is on, and viewing the World Series from a Mets fan’s POV.
“For a Met fan, the 2009 season has been a pile of shit and this series is akin to vomiting on that pile of shit.” (Major League Jerk) Some say that Kate Hudson just had her wisdom teeth pulled. (Detroit 4 Lyfe) Zimmer’s Back! (My Sports Rumors) For those interested in rubbing Cliff Lee’s jock […]
We all know that Philadelphia sports fans are an enthusiastic bunch — just look at the rioting that occurred after the World Series win last year.

Las Vegas is known as “The Entertainment Capital of the World,” and if you’ve ever graced the Strip, you know that there’s no shortage of good eats, great bars, and swanky nightclubs. But when it comes to finding the best place to watch a ballgame in Sin City, the list begins and ends with Lagasse’s […]
We’re a little confused here at the GSF… We’ve always thought that February was the shortest month at 28 days. And even February gets a full 30 days of glory every leap year. But we had no idea that some months can last a mere 6 days. Who knew? Evidently, “Rocktober” is not only one […]
