Now Tweeting: Ozzie Guillen

Now Tweeting: Ozzie Guillen

Ozzie Guillen just joined twitter, so we put together a list of tweets the foul-mouthed manager should probably avoid sending.

Where Did the Love Go?

Where Did the Love Go?

With Manny telling the media that this year will be his last in Dodger Blue, we can’t help but ask: when did the honeymoon end?

Mark McGwire: Drug Fiend

Mark McGwire: Drug Fiend

While Big Mac’s steroid admission didn’t come as a shock, you might be more surprised to learn that PEDs weren’t the only type of drugs that the slugger was using…

Hasta Luego, Big Unit

Hasta Luego, Big Unit

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.

MLB Twilight Zone: When it’s OK to Cheat

MLB Twilight Zone: When it’s OK to Cheat

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’ […]

Peter Gammons: The Song Remains the Same

Peter Gammons: The Song Remains the Same

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, […]

The MLB Twilight Zone: Takeout Gone Wrong

The MLB Twilight Zone: Takeout Gone Wrong

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. According to the Daily News’ Amanda Sidman, this past Sunday night when Derek Jeter ordered takeout from his favorite neighborhood Italian joint, Nino’s Positano, it caused some […]

The Guy Behind the Guy

The Guy Behind the Guy

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. After nerding out over at baseball​-reference​.com, it’s clear that the numbers say it all.  Sure, the Yankees won the […]

So…uh…wanna dance?

So…uh…wanna dance?

After an incredible season, yesterday Zack Greinke became the first pitcher with social anxiety disorder to win a Cy Young.  While it’s amazing to think about what he’s overcome to get where he is today, and it’s no easy task to overcome SAD, let’s keep things in perspective — he’s not the only player struggling with […]

Pete Rose on Mexicans…literally.

Pete Rose on Mexicans…literally.

So lemme get this straight, Pete Rose — you don’t eat hair, but you do gamble on your own ballgames? And don’t you dare touch that wasabi.

The MLB Twilight Zone: Girardi ain’t no nigga

The MLB Twilight Zone: Girardi ain’t no nigga

It’s not every night that you restore the Yankees to their former glory, but Joe Girardi’s evening was only getting started after he led the Bronx Bombers to their 27th world championship. According to LoHud​.com, as Girardi was driving home from the Bronx, he stopped his car at a blind curve, ran across several lanes […]

Rollie’s Roll: Zimmer’s back, the Lee/Burnett love fest is on, and viewing the World Series from a Mets fan’s POV.

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 […]

MLB Twilight Zone: How bad do you want it?

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.  And if they do it again this season,  the Philly Fanatic will probably be in line for a statue next to William Penn. So we shouldn’t be surprised when a […]

The GSF visits Lagasse’s Stadium

The GSF visits Lagasse’s Stadium

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 […]

MLB Twilight Zone: The Shortest Month

MLB Twilight Zone: The Shortest Month

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 […]

The MLB Twilight Zone: A-Rod doesn’t suck

The MLB Twilight Zone: A-Rod doesn’t suck

We all know that when it comes to meaningless games against non-playoff opponents, no one is a better hitter than Alex Rodriguez. But isn’t A-Rod supposed to be God-awful as soon as October hits?  Aren’t we talking about the $275 Million man who can’t even hit .275 in the postseason?  This is the same guy […]
