2013 Blue Jays as a Super Nintendo Game

This is one of the funniest, most creative things I’ve stumbled across this offseason. You’ll need to pause the video quite a few times to catch all the rapid-fire jokes, but it’s definitely worth it.

John Lackey, the Red Sox Snitch

54

Aside from being a notorious Free Agent Bust, John Lackey has amassed quite an impressive Boston resume so far: Traitor, for publicly insulting the Angels fans who loved him in a lame attempt to cozy up to the Chowds; Sleazeball, for abandoning his cancer stricken wife; Fat Bum who would rather eat fried chicken, drink beer & play video games than support his teammates from the dugout; and now, Clubhouse Rat.

The Coolest Non-Angels Website You'll Ever Visit

Long before the arrival of the Brooklyn Carpetbaggers, professional baseball had been thriving in The City of Angels for over six decades. The Los Angeles Angels were a minor league team in name...

Fixing the slight flaw in the swing of Jeff Mathis. Jeffy just needs to stop flopping his right hand and releasing his grip with his left too soon, which causes the ball to either pop straight up in the air or skip across the ground in front of him. Go ahead and laugh. If he does, you'll see.

Angels purchase Horacio Ramirez's contract, Kohn demoted

Los Angeles purchased reliever Horacio Ramirez's contract from the minors on Wednesday. He posted a 3.47 ERA while with Triple-A Salt Lake this year. To make room for him on the roster the Halos optioned RP Michael Kohn to the minors.

"Manager Mike Scioscia said Kazmir's next start probably will be in a minor league game, starting a clock in which the Angels will have 30 days to recall him or release him." More confirmation that the world is coming to an end this Saturday...

They Shoot Horses, Don't They? John Lackey goes 3.2IP, 2BB, 10H, 9ER (including a Grand Slam) tonight before Tito decided to mercifully put him out of his misery. Favorite Boston sportswriter quote: "Lackey was every bit the mouth-breathing pile of suck that I expected him to be. If Adrian Beltre makes the Home Run Derby, he should ask Lackey to be his pitcher. That middle-in meatball that Beltre hit for a grand slam may be the worst pitch in baseball history, made uglier by the fact that he intentionally walked Hamilton to get to Beltre."

Angel Stadium Screecher Creature’s Video Goes Viral Rebecca Black, one of those jailbait girls who mangled the Star Spangled Banner at Angel Stadium last year, has a music video that has become a viral hit on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube (nearly 3 million views in just two days), but for all the wrong reasons. Black's video "Friday" is something that is just so wonderfully awful that it must be seen and heard to be fully appreciated. Whether it’s her voice, which has been Auto-Tuned to the point where it sounds like the result of crossing Stephen Hawking with a tank of helium, the hilariously insipid lyrics she wrote: Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday Today is Friday, Friday We-we-we so excited We gonna have a ball today Tomorrow is Saturday And Sunday comes after... wards or just the bizarre way she tunelessly pronounces the word "Friday" (which sounds more like "Fried Egg") this song is guaranteed to be stabbing at your brain long after you've heard it. Also noteworthy is the creepy Pedobearish cameo by Usher, rapping about passing a school bus on his way to catch up with his 13-year old partying "peeps".

Rangers get Beltre, Angels get...more talk?

25

So Adrian Beltre is headed for Texas . Anyone want to hear what Arte Moreno has to say now? I don't. It doesn't really matter what the Angels owner says now, does it? It doesn't matter if he says again that he's going to spend whatever it takes to put the Angels back in the playoffs (that was October ). It doesn't matter whether he says that he couldn't sign Carl Crawford because he would have had to raise ticket prices, but that he had made "what we believe is a significant offer" to Beltre (that was December ). It doesn't matter now, because Crawford is in Boston, and Beltre's deal is all but done in Texas. It doesn't matter, because now not only have the Angels shown they're not prepared to compete financially with the big boys, but they've shown they can't even compete financially with the big boys in their own division.

The 30 Worst Baseball Cards of All Time

The late 1970s to early 1990s was truly a glorious era for hirsute hair, geeky glasses & cell phones about the size of a cinder block. Take a guess as to which two Halos made this Top 30 list before looking (hint: they’re probably the goofiest guys ever to don an Angels uni).

Jerry Garcia Tribute Night After witnessing some truly abysmal MLB ballpark promotions this year, ranging from the accursed Matusi Snuggie debacle at the Big A all the way down to the utterly ridiculous LOLCATS Night at Safeco Field, there finally comes one that seems totally cool (in a 40 & over kind-of-way). Tonight at AT&T Park, the San Francisco Giants will host Grateful Dead alumni Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann & Jeff Pehrson as they perform a musical tribute to Jerry Garcia during tonight’s game. While I’m no connoisseur of bobbleheads, I can’t help but wonder how much more freaking awesome that ceramic bouncing Jerry head would have looked on a body wearing an Angels warm-up jacket instead!

Trial of Nick Adenhart’s (alleged) Killer Postponed

21

Orange County Superior Court Judge Richard Toohey set Sept. 1 as the new trial date. The trial was originally scheduled to begin Monday. Andrew Thomas Gallo's attorney, Jacqueline Goodman and Deputy District Attorney Susan Price will present pretrial motions, beginning Sept. 1, with jury selection expected to start Sept. 7, Goodman said. Opening statements could begin Sept. 13, Goodman added. Goodman said she will ask Toohey at an Aug. 13 hearing to dismiss the three counts of murder against him in the grand jury indictment. Goodman contends that gross vehicular manslaughter charges would be more appropriate. "My client had a designated driver who was driving him around all day and night" before the deadly collision, Goodman said. "I just don't get the murder part. Tell me where there's a murder."

When have you ever been to a game at Dodger Stadium and seen such freshly scrubbed looking fans? A wholesome white bread nirvana where there’s no garbage strewn on the ground, 20-minute lines to get into the restrooms and everybody neatly tucks their shirts in? The only thing that seems to be missing from this sappy illustration is a stadium banner overhead proclaiming "This is My Caucasian Town!" But in one rather paradoxical touch of political correctness, the artist did choose to portray the parents of the other Dodger family as two gay men. Where’s the real Chavez Latrine ambiance that we Halos fans are all too familiar with? Where are all the Doyer fans sporting BO stained t-shirts, sleeve tattoos, bandanas and low-riding Dickies? Why isn’t there a morbidly obese drunk barfing into that trash can while surly looking, underpaid McCourt employees pretend not to notice? Why are those children waving at one other instead of flashing rival gang signs? And why isn’t Dodger Dad bitching about the $62.95 he just blew at the concession stand for a popcorn, two sodas and a couple bags of peanuts?

From Steve Bisheff: John Wooden is a longtime admirer of Angels' manager Mike Scioscia. After the 2002 World Series, I arranged a meeting between the two at Wooden's condo in Encino. I don't know which one was more excited. Scioscia gushed about what an honor it was to meet the greatest basketball coach in history. Wooden told him baseball, not basketball, was his favorite sport and that he loved the Angels' style of play, emphasizing team over individuals.

There's No Crying in Baseball... Unless You're Ken Griffey Jr.

3

Seattle Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu said that Ken Griffey Jr. was not asleep in the clubhouse in the eighth inning last Saturday night, he was indeed on the bench and available to pinch-hit, contradicting parts of a story that appeared in The Tacoma (Wash.) News Tribune on Monday. Before Tuesday night's game against the Baltimore Orioles, the Mariners held a players-only meeting. A club source said the meeting was organized by Mike Sweeney and "was 100 percent about Griffey" and was designed to support Griffey. The source said that Griffey was upset and hurt by the story and cried briefly during the meeting. Sweeney chastised the anonymous young players for speaking about something that had happened in the clubhouse, according to the source. Also... Ken Rosenthal tweeted that Mike Sweeney openly challenged whoever the two Safeco Field deep throats were to stand up and fight him, but nobody took him up on the offer. http://twitter.com/Ken_Rosenthal The bad soap opera that is the 2010 Seattle Mariners just gets stranger and stranger…

Get on Your Boots: U2 Concert at Big A Will Send Halos on a 14-Game Trip

73

Anyone who has ever been to a U2 show can tell you it's not like they set up folding chairs in a middle school gymnasium and start playing. The Pop Martians perform on elaborate monstrosities that take days to assemble and break down. Yes, days. Forcing the Rally Monkey from his home for two weeks? Probably not the legacy Bono is shooting for.

Are the Yankees Truly the Most-Despised Ballclub?

For many, the Wall Street Journal’s recent decision to add a sports section made about as much sense as ESPN deciding to dispense stock tips... here’s a hard hitting, totally unbiased story that scientifically "proves" (using data provided by the New York based Nielsen Co.) that the Journal’s hometown Yankees are not the most universally hated and despised team in all of baseball. You're not going to believe some of the teams that ranked in the Top Ten Worst.
