The older I get, the less value I see in vitriol. I am trying not to be angry right now. But I am hurt. I'm human. And humans have feelings -- feelings that, obviously, get hurt. I understand Albert Pujols had some hurt feelings too, because Ryan Howard -- a... Continue reading

RSBS Special Correspondent and bonafide LOLstro lover, Mr. Johanna Mahmud reports: “Gee, I wish we had one of them doomsday machines.” There are three things I can never remember: the first is people's names.

The Twittersphere is an oddly fantastic place. It's a lot like American Gladiators, you either get it or you're like "Dude, wtf is this insanity?" So whenever someone comes along and does something different, I have to give credit. We have a new follower whose handle is @White_Sox_Fans Of course,... Continue reading

Boston just got a bazillion times cooler. Seriously, I'm pumped to have Bobby V back in the game, just so I can post slobbery fanboy I'm-in-complete-awe-of-you-Bobby material. For example, did you know that in addition to inventing "the wrap" and never mispronouncing Benny Agbayani's name, Valentine is ALSO a 12th... Continue reading

Stop it. Stop looking at me like that. If you want a Bobby Valentine/Red Sox dramaschlobfest post then go check out the worldwide leader in sports smut. This is Red State Blue State.

RSBS Special Correspondent and rogue horsicorn rider, Mr. Johanna Mahmud reports: “This is what happens when you leave home. You meet... people.” Men, are you moody? Are you out of shape?

There are three computers in my house. When idle, I like to keep the above GIF running on all three of them, so when I pass by I can get off on Greinke's angry bounce. Oh how sweet it is, oh how sweet it is. Don't hate me 'cuz I'm... Continue reading

Just like a Justin Verlander fastball, this is going to be quick, hard to see and will probably guilt you into crowning me with the MVP award: The Drah-mah in Bahhhh-ston Leave it to the Red Sox to be all dramatified in the offseason. As if their 2010 free agent... Continue reading

RSBS Special Correspondent and lone Zambrano-believer, Mr. Johanna Mahmud reports: Throw the Spaghetti in the Machine. I'm a burning bush. I'm a wildfire. I'm singing in the rain and dancing again.

Admit it. It may be Monday, but your mind is already on Thursday -- Thanksgiving -- the one day of the year where your sole responsibility is to eat yourself into a coma, sprawl out on the couch and watch football for 7 hours while catnapping as necessary. You get... Continue reading

As the enemy begins yet another chapter in its century-long battle against awful, I can't help but reflect on the one-and-done tenure of Mr. Mike Quade. I will not question the hearty baseball acumen of the man; he's been around this long, so he must know something. But a leader... Continue reading

RSBS Special Correspondent and podcast kidnapee, Mr. Johanna Mahmud reports: “I speak over two thousand languages, including Dodo and Unicorn. I had a classical education.” Can Theo talk to the animals? Does he speak two thousand languages? Can he communicate his agenda to the morbidly obtuse, dumb and crazy? From... Continue reading

I was going to write something clever about the Army/Rutgers football game that took place at Yankee Stadium yesterday before I realized: no one cares about Army or Rutgers football and unless the Yankees are playing, no one cares about Yankee Stadium stadium either. So instead, I would like to... Continue reading

Just like the unfounded superstitions of the delusional masses, this is gonna be LOUD, in your face and probably a bit offensive: Wilson Ramos Kidnapped I know Venezuela has a vast array of domestic problems, but why kidnap Wilson Ramos?!?! While he may some day become a catching superstar for... Continue reading

RSBS Special Correspondent and Muppet Aficionado, Mr. Johanna Mahmud reports: Left-Hand Hate KO'd by Love. I’ve been living in the house of ill repute.

I'm not much of television watcher. Outside of sporting events and the occasional Survivor Man episode, I just can't get into something week after week. I blame The Wire. After blowing through all five seasons in just a few short weeks a couple years ago, everything else just seemed like... Continue reading

By now, my century long-depressed baseball brethren on the north side of Chicago are aware that, despite Prince Charming occupying the king's seat at Addison and Clark, Cubbie Land might still get turned on its head. Oh yes. Ryne Sandberg. If Ryne Sandberg becomes the new manager of the St.... Continue reading

The afterglow of knowing your team is champion of the baseball world is a pretty damn cool thing. I have been walking around the last few days in a sort of "Happy Flight" daze. I've been smiling more. I feel fantastic. But yesterday morning, reality hit me: there won't be... Continue reading

This. Is. Awesome. 2006 was special, but this... this is... LEGENDARY. In fact, I think this is one of those cases where it really is necessary to describe the situation as EPIC. And it's epic, it's legendary because, like a lot of good things that come to us in life,... Continue reading

(image via Ezra Shaw/Getty Images) Last night's game -- from here and forever to be referred to solely as THE Game 6 -- caused defibrillator industry stock prices to rise at the same exponential rate as my own blood pressure, let alone reminding the masses that YOU DON'T QUIT. YOU... Continue reading
