Baseball is generally not a subject that comes up here on Thoughts of a Jeanius, but this was pretty damn cool. Before the first baseball game played in Boston following the bombing during last weeks Boston Marathon, David “Big Papi,” Ortiz gave a speech to the fans at Fenway, and to say it was fiery would be an understatement.
Well here’s something that you don’t always see — Lil Wayne singing in public. You can also add that you don’t always see Lil Wayne in public NOT making a fool out of himself.
Weezy F surprised fans in San Francisco on Sunday during the Giants-Cardinals NLCS Game 6 by singing ‘Take Me Out to the Ballgame’ during the seventh-inning stretch.
Matt Cain threw a perfect game for the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night against the Houston Astros. Cain threw the 22nd perfect game in Major League Baseball history.
The Giants provided more than enough run support for Cain, scoring 10 runs on 15 hits. Cain struck out 14 on 125-pitches during the rare feat. Those 14 strike outs are tied for the most in a perfect game, tying Sandy Koufax.
The is the first perfect game in 130 years for the Giants organization. Cain’s perfect game is the second of this season, the first going to Chicago White Sox’s Philip Humber on April 21.
Cain was also on the good side of some great defense, by Gregor Blanco. Check out his diving catch below:
The Miami Marlins have a lot on their plate right now — new players, uniforms, stadium, and a lawsuit. The Marlins are being sued by someone who claims that they bought the team for $10 million at an auction. While I know the Marlins are consistently last in attendance, and share the common perception of not paying their players, I can almost guarantee the team is worth more than $10 million. (more…)
Congratulations to your 2011 National League batting champion, New York Mets short stop Jose Reyes. Reyes just edged out Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun. In Wednesday’s game Reyes was lifted for a sub after he bunted for a single, the bunt single brought his hit count for the season to 181. Ryan Braun would finish the day going 0 for 4, playing the entire game. Including Wednesday’s game (Last day of the regular season), Reyes’ average will finish at .337, while Braun’s average drops slightly to .332. Reyes will become the first Mets player to win the batting title, hard to believe seeing as how they have been around since 1964.
