  • MLB 09 The Show predicts a Phillies win in 7 games (take that, Yankees!)

    Yes~! I'm rooting for the Phillies over the Yankees this World Season because I'm a Mets fan, and I'd sooner root for Team Mars in an Earth vs. Mars Loser Leaves The Galaxy Match than root for the Yankees. HopefullyMLB 09 The Show's prediction pans out, because it has Philadelphia beating The Bronx Bums in seven games. Read More

  • It's time for the MLB to adopt instant replay

    It's time for the MLB to adopt instant replay

    Look, I'd be lying if I said I followed baseball this season. I'm a Mets guy, and you just know that, once April hits, you're in for a reasonably OK season, but one that just looses steam as the months go by. So why bother? What I can say, though, is that, given all this evidence, it's about time that baseball adopt the instant replay. Correct calls outweigh everything else. We have the… Read More

    Video: Two robots playing baseball (kind of)

    Baseball is a national sports in Japan and so it was just a matter of time for this baseball- and robot-crazy country to invent (industrial) robots that are able to play baseball. The 2-robot team can't run around and doesn't look human, but both machines are able to throw and bat the ball in quite an impressive way. Read More

    Nice: Earl Weaver Baseball coming to iPhone

  • A mesmerizing look at the Hatfield Hotdog Launcher

    Wow. Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Hatfield Hotdog Launcher that’s brought out in between innings at the Phillies’ games. A lot of work went into getting all the science-y stuff right and even then, sometimes the hot dogs fly out of their wrappers mid-flight (watch at about the five-minute mark). Very cool. Read More

  • Baseball prepares itself for on-the-field instant replay

    Baseball prepares itself for on-the-field instant replay

    Not even instant replay could help this team As if baseball isn’t slow enough already, it now looks like the MLB will allow the use of instant replay to help make on-the-field calls. Don’t tell the purists. The deal, which is all but done but not *quite* finished, is such that instant replay will start being used before the end of the month. Use of instant replay will be limited to… Read More

    Baseball MMOG lets you purchase levels: only $200 for level 99!

    So the only baseball-based massively multiplayer game out there is now letting you shell out real life cash for in-game levels, giving you access to better leagues, tournaments, and I imagine making your players into tricked-out monsters. Apparently they didn’t learn the lesson EA did when they attempted to sell upgrades for people in Battlefield: Bad Company. Blue’s News calculates… Read More

    Nintendo Fan Network now free for Mariners' fans

    I’m sitting in the Virgin America gate at JFK waiting for my flight to Seattle and I come across this tidbit of news. I’m both stoked and bummed at the same time. I’m stoked because this is a pretty rad deal for Mariner’s fans and I grew up rooting for them, which explains my hatred for the Yankees, but I’m bummed because I forgot my DS at home. If you’re… Read More
