MLB Exit
The Blue Jays, I believe, are the only MLB team not to make the playoffs this century.

There was 3 scenarios today of game results that would've required a game 163, but none of them materialized. That would've been weird having 3 game 163s.

The 1st place Orioles, having already made the playoffs, threw Derek Jeter (right-handed batter) an outside batting practice fastball while playing their 2nd baseman directly behind 2nd to hold the runner. WTF!? This resulted in Jeter getting his 7th walk off hit of his career, his last game at Yankee stadium. It was the only walk off hit of his career where the other team won the division (obviously not a stupid team) while playing a hall of fame slap hitter to pull the ball. Unrelated, it's really easy for a hall of fame slap hitter to hit a batting practice outside fastball to where the 2nd baseman should be standing.

Toronto sports teams should be embarrassed. The ownership group mostly includes Bell, Rogers, Bell and Rogers. Go Leafs Go!

2014 MLB All-Star Team

My 2014 MLB all-star team. Note the team is not the 25 best stats, but rather the 25 that actually help their teams win. Many of the fielders were picked basaed on a combination of fielding and hitting stats, rather than simply who got the most HRs. I also included 3 non-starting non-stopping relievers.

Starters Clayton Kershaw
  Felix Hernandez
  Adam Wainwright
  Johnny Cueto
  Corey Kluber
  Max Scherzer
Relievers Craig Kimbrel
  Greg Holland
  Hudson Street
  Tony Watson
  Wade Davis
  Dellin Betances
Catchers Buster Posey
  Yadier Molina
Firstbase Miguel Cabrera
Secondbase Robinson Cano
Thirdbase Josh Donaldson
Shortstop Alexei Ramirez
Infield Ian Kinsler
Utility Ben Zobrist
Leftfield Yoenis Cepedes
Centerfield Mike Trout
Rightfield Jose Bautista
Outfield Andrew McCutchen
DH Victor Martinez

Are You a Baseball Chick?

Over the next few months, Talk-Sports is gonna name the Baseball Chicks of the Web. Fans can submit videos on YouTube showing us that you are a baseball chick. Include the words talksportsnet baseballchick (baseballchick is one word) in the title or description of the video to be eligible for selection (actually... so we can easily find them). 

Here are some ideas for your videos.

We will select 2 to 10 baseball chicks, depending on how many videos we get. Those selected will be official Talk-Sports Baseball Chicks and they will be featured on the Talk-Sports website. The Baseball Chicks will then compete online to become the Ultimate Baseball Chick.

All selected Baseball Chicks will receive free bronze memberships on Talk-Sports. The Ultimate Baseball Chick will receive 2 tickets to a baseball game at their local MLB ballpark. If you would like to co-sponsor this contest by adding to our prize pool, then please contact us at
