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.

Jonah Keri has great things to say about Jesse Chavez.
