TweetDuring the 2011 season Jose Valverde converted 49 saves in 49 save opportunities. His last blown save was way back on September 2, 2010. So his next blown save was bound to happen sooner or later. You can’t expect the man to be perfect forever… better to blow a save on opening day instead of […]

MLB Twitter Hexes Another No Hit Bid http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/04/mlb-twitter-hexes-another-no-hit-bid/ Thu, 05 Apr 2012 01:35:31 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/04/mlb-twitter-hexes-another-no-hit-bid/

TweetEvery baseball fan knows not to mention it when a pitcher has a no-hit bid going. So why the Twitter account manager of the MLB’s official Twitter keep posting tweets about no-hitters is beyond me. Well tonight, on opening night of the 2012 season, the MLB Twitterer person didn’t waste any time striking again.

TweetWell, that special time of year is finally here. Now, I know that the season “technically” started last week over in Japan. But with a sport with such pride in its historic traditions, I say that the Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics split 2 game series doesn’t count. (Sorry Ichero fans). Opening game tonight, with […]

TweetNL East - Philadelphia Phillies This team probably still has the best starting pitching in the Majors. A run in September should be all that matters at this point. I’m not drinking the Miami Marlin Kool-Aid just yet. NL Central – St. Louis Cardinals I think they have enough hitters and pitchers to take this […]

TweetWith a month left until Opening Day, I think it’s time to make some predictions for the new season. Today we’ll start with the AL. American League East – Tampa Bay Rays The Yankees aren’t getting younger, and Tampa usually competes really well in the division. I’m sure Boston will be in the mix as […]

Ron Zimmer Bear Bobblehead http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/22/ron-zimmer-bear-bobblehead/ Wed, 22 Feb 2012 22:49:47 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/02/22/ron-zimmer-bear-bobblehead/

TweetThe Tampa Bay Rays decided to take their promotion to another level by giving former infielder/manager and current Rays senior advisor Ron Zimmer his own bobblehead night. For some reason, though, they found it necessary to make him into a teddy bear. This goofy looking tough guy/plushy friend hybrid seems to share a distinct quality […]

TweetIn other offseason news, the New York Yankees announced that they will be producing a New York Yankee cologne and perfume in a couple weeks. Will it smell like a newly sewn leather glove? Or maybe a sweaty, overpaid shortstop? Either way, here’s to hoping this is a trend that other teams will follow NOT […]

TweetPrince Fielder went to the Detroit Tigers with a 9 year, $214 million dollar contract. It is the fourth largest contract in baseball history. But it seems that a lot of people are hating on Fielder because he is overweight. So what if the guy was skinny? Would that make them hate less or be […]

TweetRemember the special guest star appearance by the Rally Squirrel last season in the NLDS? The squirrel raced past the plate as Phillies pitcher Roy Oswalt delivered a pitch to Skip Schumaker. We haven’t seen the last of him. Topps baseball card company has given Rally Squirrel all of the focus in the 2012 Schumaker […]

TweetIt’s been well known now that Commissioner Bud Selig is proposing a new 10-team playoff system, as apposed to the current 8-team system. This would include a 1-game playoff between the two Wild Card teams in each League. Bill Hancock, director of the much-loved Bowl Championship Series may have a different take on how the […]

TweetWith the announcement of Prince Fielder going to the Detroit Tigers, Detroit’s odds to win the 2012 World Series have jumped from 14-1 to 9-1. I see that the Oakland Athletic’s odds are near bottom at 75-1. Billy Beane better get on top of that and email Jose Canseco to help boost those odds. Odds […]
