Top 9 MLB rule changes

    Thursday, April 29, 2010, 10:56 AM [General]

    It was recently announced that MLB has made four rule changes to the All-Star Game, including the designated hitter being used every year, regardless of which ballpark the game is being played. I must applaud the league for its forward thinking, but believe that there are still nine more changes that need to be made to baseball overall. Here they are, as posted on's NINER.

    Swisher on How I Met Your ... Mother

    Tuesday, February 2, 2010, 11:32 AM [General]

    If it's possible, I just became an even bigger fan of Nick Swisher. No, not just because he showed up on the wildy underrated How I Met Your Mother TV show. My fandom actually grew when he randomly tossed a dramatic pause into one of his lines, even though it had no business being there. It was classic ... stuff. Check ... it out:

    In honor of Swisher's "amazing" performance on How I Met Your Mother (watch full episode), I'm preparing a "Yankees on TV Shows" edition of The Niner, to be available this Thursday. In the meantime, check out these past editions of The Niner:

    Tiger Woods jokes

    Friday, December 4, 2009, 4:22 PM [General]

    Tiger Woods is so rich that he owns lots of expensive cars. Now he has a hole-in-one.

    What's the difference between a car and a golf ball?  Tiger can drive a ball 400 yards.

    Tiger's new movie is out: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Hydrant.

    Apparently the police asked Tiger's wife how many times she hit him. She said "I don't know exactly… but put me down for a 5."

    What were Tiger Woods and his wife doing out at 2.30 in the morning?  They went clubbing

    Phil Mickelson contacted Tiger's wife to pick up some tips on how to beat Tiger!

    What does Tiger Woods and a seal cub have in common? They both get clubbed by Norwegians.

    Tiger Woods crashed into a fire hydrant and a tree. He couldn’t decide between an iron and a wood.

    Sammy Sosa is white

    Monday, November 9, 2009, 10:25 AM [General]

    Don't you think that after seeing what Michael Jackson went through, you would do everything in your power not to follow those footsteps? Sammy Sosa, however, does not feel that way. Instead, the creepy former MLB outfielder is actually turning into Wacko Jacko. His first step - turning white. This photo is almost hard to believe. But it's true.

    A Cubs employee claims he is simply going through a rejuvenation process. But who really believes that? Dude's white.

    Wake up, old man

    Wednesday, November 4, 2009, 3:59 PM [General]

    Let's hope the Yanks put up a better effort tonight so we don't have to see Mayor Bloomberg asleep in his seat again. Don't you think that if you're mayor of New York and you have awesome seats that none of us can afford, the least you can do is stay awake?

    Top 5 funniest baseball cards

    Friday, October 30, 2009, 12:38 PM [General]

    rickey.jpg#5. Rickey Henderson: Just what every young kid needs: a photo of Rickey taking a lead in his underwear. Who thought this was a good idea?


    pacella.jpg#4. John Pacella: Everybody knows the Mets went through some tough times in the early 1980s, but did Pacella really need to throw his hat down in disgust? Have some class!


    sosa.jpg#3. Sammy Sosa: Sammy's looking mighty happy for a guy who just stuck his finger in a light socket.




    ripken.jpg#2. Billy Ripken: This is a family web site, so I won't tell you what it says on the bottom of his bat. But those who are already in the know understand this card's greatness.


    gamble.jpg#1. Oscar Gamble: This card is great on so many levels. Obviously, his hair takes the cake. But how about that ridiculous Photoshop (or whatever they used back then) job on his hat and that horrible play on words in the headline?

    #6. Jim Leyland: To the best of my knowledge, this is the only documented photo of Jim Leyland smiling. It's probably because he's is wearing a small building on the top of his head disguised as a hat. (click for No. 7 -- Top 5)
