Watch for coverage on TNT

Oh yeah, you know you want to go to a music festival and crab feast hosted by Jimmie "JJ" Walker.

Can we bash A-Rod and Albert Belle too?

PNC Park Leaving Pittsburgh?

Let's see... On this blog we've had Cub bashing, Royal bashing, Ponson bashing, and, of course, Cristian Guzman bashing....

But no Pirates bashing. So, here it is, from the Onion...

PNC Park Threatens To Leave Pittsburgh Unless Better Team Is Built

Question of the Day

Anyone have any clue why ESPN fired Harold Reynolds?

Jeremy Piven on J-Date

I already posted about this on my blog, but it bears repeating: Read Jeremy Piven's interview about J-Date. It's weird.

Big baseball news of the day

Tthe relationship between major league baseball and D.C. sure has gotten really bad really quickly. Not that it should surprise anyone.

Still waiting for the announcement of the purported Bonds indictment, though.

You Can't Make This Stuff Up

For the past month or two, the Orioles have been advertising Brian Roberts Celebration Bobblehead Day for the Saturday, July 15th game against the Texas Rangers (no, he won't be wearing a Hawaiian shirt and a Bowie Baysox uniform). This bobblehead was the first of a two part series featuring Roberts and Melvin Mora. Unfortunately, due to a manufacturing error, the Roberts bobblehead won't be ready for Saturday's game, and fans will instead receive a voucher. So what happened? Let's just say it appears that the bobblehead doesn't look like Roberts at all... but does have a certain resemblance to Melvin Mora, Jerry Hairston, Sammy Sosa, Barry Bonds, etc...

And you thought there was nothing sports-related to report on today

As Justin pointed out while we were watching the All-Star Game last night, today is the only day of the year with no major sporting event. I'm sure Debby is estactic.

To mark the middle of the Nats increasingly depressing baseball season, DCist published a list of awards. Most notable:

  • The FEMA Award: GM Jim Bowden
  • Best DIY Player Bio: Royce Clayton
  • Most Guzmanian: Jose Guillen
  • Star in the Wrong League Award: Daryle Ward
  • Best Nationals Cheer: "the denizens of Section 320 for the modified Norway soccer chant: “Hooray, hooray, hooray,... Jose, Jose,” which seems to finally be making its way around the stadium. Notwithstanding his miserable season, Guillen gets some of the best support RFK fans can offer."

Update: It is rumored that Barry Bonds will soon be charged with perjury and tax evasion.

Sidney Ponson Update

As Jeff told me by email yesterday, the Cardinals designated Sidney Ponson for assignment. Unless another team picks him up, Ponson will finish the year with an ERA+ of 86, and I will lose our bet.

Two random things

1. Inbal posted about the Office recently, but here's some new info: The British cast will be making an appearance on the American version this season.

2. Via Gawker, the cover of the New York Post:

Hidden dangers of minor league mascots

Beware of mascots -- because underneath their innocent, cartoonish exterior, there may be a giant perv.

What's up with Kansas City baseball teams?

First the Royals suck, now the Northern League's Kansas City T-Bones are resorting to video games. The T-Bones have teamed with CompUSA to offer the CompUSA Ultimate Baseball Challenge: two video game players will play the first two innings of a game between the T-Bones and the Schaumberg (Ill.) Flyers using a Microsoft XBox on the electronic scoreboard, and then, regardless of the score, the real teams will play the rest of the game. Maybe the Royals should try this promotion- their video game team has to be better than their real team!
