We don’t have much Intel on this Dallas area bro, but what we do know is that he appears to have the best Josh Hamilton Halloween costume of 2012. Hell, he might even have the best MLB related costume of the year.
Major League baseball fields are surprisingly different. Although the infields are the same, the outfields vary dramatically.
The Lexington Legends are the Kansas City Royals’ Class A affiliate. But the Royals affiliation is only a little over a month old, so the team wanted to make a big splash in celebration.

At least Verlander is dating Kate Upton…Ohhh, you haven’t heard.
Miguel Cabrera, Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, Phil Coke, and company made quick work of the Yankees in the ALCS. The Tigers disposed of New York in a tidy, four game sweep on Thursday and now face a somewhat lengthy layoff until the start of the World Series next Wednesday.
The Yankees reportedly are planning to send center fielder Curtis Granderson to an eye specialist this offseason over concerns that his vision may have worsened. The New York Daily News says Granderson learned he had 20/30 vision — slightly worse than the standard 20/20 vision — after being traded to the Yankees in 2010. He began wearing contact lenses that season, though it is unclear if he has worn them since.
Brian Cashman is going to have his hands full when he starts working the offseason phones this winter. But, if it were up to New York Yankees fans, he could start by dumping Alex Rodriguez, Nick Swisher and Curtis Granderson right off the bat and nary a fan would cry — at least around 75% wouldn’t.
In two separate New York tabloid polls, The New York Post and the New York Daily News readers unanimously voted to dump all three players after pitiful showings in the 2012 postseason.
There’s a lot of blame to pass around for the New York Yankees pathetic showing in the four-game sweep by the Detroit Tigers in the American league Championship Series. You can start with the team’s lack of offense or any kind of spunk in the lineup but, if you ask the Yankees players — specifically one — they lost because they never recovered from all the heckling at Yankee Stadium in Game 2.
The Cardinals lost one of the greatest hitters in their franchise’s history last winter, yet they still find themselves two wins away from returning to the World Series to defend their title.
The New York Yankees have announced that Derek Jeter has elected to have surgery on his fractured left ankle and is expected to need approximately four to five months for a complete recovery, according to the team’s website.
The Post identified the Yankees fan who Alex Rodriguez hit on during the 9th inning of game one of this year’s ALCS: Bikini model Kyna Treacy. The 5’8″, 33-24-34 Aussie is the founder of Kini Bikini, however she has not upped its website.
With one swing of a bat, Jayson Werth transformed himself from frustrating $126 million man into postseason hero on Thursday night. The Nationals forced a Game 5 in their NLDS series against the Cardinals thanks to Werth’s walk-off home run, which earned him the right to have himself turned into a cupcake.
After what happened in game 3, this was bound to take place. Yankees manager Joe Girardi has pulled Alex Rodriguez from tonight’s lineup for game 5 versus the Orioles in the ALDS. A-Rod can’t get out of his own way these days and constantly gets booed by the home crowd.
Apparently putting an end to months of speculation and conjecture, it now appears that we have reasonable confirmation of what most folks have long suspected: superstar überbabe and swimsuit model Kate Upton is in fact dating Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander. At least if you are willing to believe Verlander’s grandpa. And if you can believe someone’s granddad, who can you believe?
Bryce Harper may only be 19 years old, but it looks like the Nats superstar is already taken. Busted Coverage did some outstanding sleuthing and discovered that Harper appears to be dating Kayla Varner, a BYU soccer player who is from Nevada.
