Minor League Baseball
This sounds pretty good, until you realize that two of the rejected choices for the new name were Tire Jacks and Canal Rats … both far superior.
This Minor League Pitcher Was About To Have His Head Taken Off… But Then Made This Sick Catch Instead
Holy SHI– Oh, he’s fine. Awesome catch, man. [Big League Stew]

Minor League Baseball Team To Have Dollar Weiner Night In Honor Of The Anthony Weiner Sexting Scandal
On Thursday night, the Richmond Flying Squirrels will sell
hot dogs weiners for a dollar a piece in honor of politician Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal, which involved his… weiner. But the fun doesn’t stop there. They’re getting Tiger Woods and Brett Favre involved too.
Bases loaded. Two outs. Ninth inning. Tie game. Batter hits a walk-off single. His team lost the game. Read on to find out how this madness happened.
The Saint Paul Saints, the American Association baseball team that once gave out Sen.Larry Craig bobblefoot dolls after Craig allegedly solicited sex in an airport, is holding an “Umpireless Game” on May 11.

The 24-year-old batted .244 this past season for the Charlotte Stone Crabs, a Rays Single A affiliate, with 4 HRs, 38 RBIs and 39 runs scored. He is also a man who refuses to take required drug tests and has been suspended 50 games.

That’s why I absolutely adore 350-pound pitcher Jose “Jumbo” Diaz for stealing third base. Watch the big fella go, after the jump.

Still, that doesn’t mean they can’t fantasize about doing it themselves — and when one of the best to ever pitch for their parent club accomplished the feat, the Jackson Generals’ outfield was full of believers.
