Sports stars make us jealous. They make loads of money, are idolised by fans across the world and seem to have a lot of fun doing what they love. Oh, and they almost always seem to get the girl too, just ask Justin Verlander. The Detroit Tigers pitcher presented his girlfriend, super-duper model Kate Upton with […]


The Oakland Athletics traded Yoenis Cespedes to the Boston Red Sox for Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes last week in a move which may confuse many. But not me. Lester’s arrival adds more depth to the A’s’ already elite starting pitching staff that has Sonny Gray, Scott Kazmir, Jeff Samardzija, and Jason Hammel. As well as […]


Yesterday he was a cricket player and now a baseballer. Steven Gerrard really has done some wonderful things since retiring from the England squad hasn’t he? Well it would seem that way as the 33-year-old tried his hand at baseball during Liverpool’s time at the Boston Red Sox’s Fenway Park. By Scott MacArthur – @scottmacarthur8 The […]


Radamel Falcao is one of the most lethal strikers in world football. The Colombia international has even earned the nickname El Tigre (The Tiger), due to his famed predatory instincts. So, with that in mind, the 28-year-old decided to try his luck at baseball this week… And it looks like Falcao is just as deadly with the bat as he is with the […]


A New York man who was caught sleeping at a recent Yankees game against the Red Sox on ESPN is filing a $10 million defamation suit against broadcasters Dan Shulman and John Kruk for their “avalanche of disparaging words,” according to the New York Post. Andrew Robert Rector admitted that he “briefly slept” while attending the […]


Brock Holt was playing his first ever game in centerfield for the Red Sox last night during their win over the Minnesota Twins at Fenway Park. And it wasn’t long before he was called into action with superb effect. When his team-mate Jonny Gomes appeared to lose the ball in the lights off of the […]


Yoenis Cespedes must be feeling pretty happy with himself right now. With the game tied between his Oakland A’s and the Los Angeles Angels at 1-1, the Cuban outfielder failed to pick up the first ball to left-field but recovered in spectacular fashion. Unfortunately for Angels’ Howie Kendrick:  


Dare to say Robinson Cano‘s name loud enough in New York and you will most probably end up hearing a loud boo from some crazy Yankees fan still furious about his megabucks move to the Seattle Mariners. It’s fair to say the ex-Yankees second baseman isn’t highly regarded among their fans anymore. And he was told […]


Hip-hop superstar 50 Cent may well be one of the most decorated artists of all time but one thing’s for sure – he can’t throw a baseball. The rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, threw out what is possibly the worst ceremonial first pitch in the history of baseball when he took centre stage in Citi Field before last […]


Baseball fans often ask themselves the same question, how can we improve the game at the highest level? Is the answer to expand to Montreal and Puerto Rico? Is it to find a new MLB commissioner? Well, we here at Talking Baws think this Atlantic Coast Conference baseball tournament has finally found the answer…bat dogs! By […]
