Anaheim encountered some massive derp on Sunday as they committed three errors on one play.

Jon Morosi thinks there's nothing wrong with players admiring home runs, and I am in total agreement.

Jeremy Blachman adds some flair to Passover food. The holiday ends Tuesday at sundown. Happy Passover to those who are observing!

Jeff Francoeur pitched during a PCL game on Sunday.

Check out this neat graphic comparing Billy Hamilton's path to first base with those of other speedsters.

Jonah Keri has great things to say about Jesse Chavez.
